London Fashion Week street style AW16
Struggling with what to wear? We spoke to some of the seriously stylish attendees at last season’s London Fashion Week – which means we're chock-a-block with inspiring pictures of people dressed in their Sunday best. Danish blogger Isabella Thordsen headed out around LFW to ask Londoners what makes the city, and its style, so very special. Dafe Oboro 'I love the diversity in London – you never see the same person twice.' Hannah Sargeant 'I love how everyone gets excited about new designers.' Victor Jones 'People have edge here and interesting stuff is always happening.' Francesca Wright 'I love London because it's full of diverse people. People aren't afraid to dress up and wear what they want.' Kasper Vang 'I like it because it it so big, there's always something to do and there are so many stories.' Danni Harris 'I moved here last week, I love how busy it is. You can step outside and do anything – London is always awake. It's alive all of the time and you can always feel inspired.'
Part cafe (where you can have a coffee, slice of cake and potter on a sewing machine for £10 per hour), and part harberdashery, Ray Stitch is a wonderful place to draw crafty inspiration. Classes are ambitious, though often billed for beginners, and invite you to learn how to make lined Roman blinds, a shirt dress or try your hand at patchwork among other textile-based skills.
Venue says: “Ray Stitch – the most stylish fabric shop in London! Sewing school, fabrics and haberdashery for dressmakers and sewing enthusiasts.”
