S716_London_College_of_fashion_logo-1030x452

Today we met some of our teachers – Fifi who will teach us in fashion history and artifact and Michael who’s the teacher of British cultural studies. They both seems amazing and I got so inspired by the both of them. I just want the classes to start NOW.  We also met a woman who work for WGSN who thought us how to use their services which was fun cause when I studied at SoFI in Norway my trend forecasting teacher taught us so much about the things she talked about so I felt right at home at once haha. Now I’m reeeeeally tired after all the info and impressions of these last two days.

Tomorrow we will be walking around London and hopefully I have the opportunity to take som pictures for the blog. Now I’m off to meet up with two american girls from school for some coffee.

 

 

My summer must haves

summer essentails

Here it is! My 2016 summer board . Since I’m going on my vacation in two weeks I wanted to create a moodboard of summer essentials. So here’s what’s on it. I LOVE to switch all body butters and lotions for oils in the summer and the honey bronze body oil from The body shop also leaves the skin whit a really nice glow which is a huge bonus. The Earin rose oil leaves the skin on your face hydrated and has a lighter feeling then a face cream. The Clean edp is my perfect summer scent, it’s fresh and citrus-y and that’s how a summer should smell according to me. It’s important to protect your lips as well as your skin from UV-rays, this lip balm from supergoop! SPF 30 gives a cooling sensation on the lips as well. AND even though it’s not on my board, don’t forget to use SPF to protect yourself from the sun and remember to drink plenty of water!

As I mentioned in my summer list I wanted a pair of slippers and I think the Adilettes from Adidas are so nice, they’re sporty yet cute.  I also wrote about reading more books and Dana Thomas book Delux is the first one I want to start with. Then we have a really beautiful beach look and THE most fabbeach bag.

Now I can’t wait to head of to the beach!!!!!

#Fashionweek x Carin Wester

Carin Westers show was very laid-back but in a chic way. The colours were mostly in bordeux and marine with som cool prints on some pieces. The silhuettes was very interesting to me with some elongated and highlighted waist. Over all it’s pretty wearable and I like it a lot. The printed coat and pants are to die for.

Best looks according to me: (ph: elle.se)

#Fashionweek x Dagmar

The next collection I’m gonna give you my thoughts about is House of Dagmar, driven by three sisters. I’ve always been fascinated about Dagmar and I love their choice of textiles and colours this season. It’s a bit rough and hard but still dreamy and feminin. It contains everything from pleats to asymmetric cuts and sporty influences. The colours are also great, there was a lot of beige, blue, black and white. to summarise it I think it’s a very well tailored collection that shows some great craftsmanship.

These are my favouirte looks (ph from elle.se)
