Presenter and model Laura Whitmore has become a FROW regular at London Fashion Week, so we couldn’t wait to catch up with her at the spring/summer 2015 shows. Strutting into Gyunel with BFF model Tallulah Adeyemi – both looking very glam and ready for the after parties – Laura talked us through her day one LFW look. That All Saints bag just went right to the top of our autumn wardrobe wish-list!
So Laura’s looking lovely, but who’s Gyunel we hear you ask? Well, get it on your fashion radar now, because it’s the show every celeb wanted to be at on day one of the catwalk extravaganza. Rounding off a show-packed first day, we headed to London’s gorgeous Bloomsbury Ballroom to see the SS15 collection.
The creation of designer Gyunel Rustamova, the label first caused a stir on the LFW show scene back in February, pulling in Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne – no mean feat for a fledgling brand. Fast forward six months and Gyunel just gets better, with Laura, Millie Mackintosh, Delilah, Mary Charteris, Rosie Fortescue, Lilah Parsons and more on the rather stylish FROW – as you can see, sitting straight opposite them we were in prime position to do a little bit of pre-show celeb spotting.
Despite the celeb distractions, we couldn’t help but fall in love with the collection itself. A mix of girlie and fierce, pretty pastels mixed with khaki and neutrals, while scorpion motifs lent an edge to the delicate shapes and soft fabrics. Amber’s dramatic maxi was definitely one of our faves. Look out for the collection coming to a red carpet near you soon.
