Ten ways to get noticed by a fashion blogger

Here's how to attract the attention of an online fashionista at London Fashion Week

By Katie Dailey and Miriam Bouteba
Want to be papped by one of the world's hippest fashion bloggers this London Fashion Week? Well check out our ten tips for being the subject of impromptu fashion shoot.

1. Go into mourning

Wear some form of Edwardian period costume. Perhaps a chimney sweep? Or a lady in mourning. Try a lace cape, a waistcoat, or weathered, knobbly boots – maybe even carry a jaunty broomstick.

2. Have some experimental socks

Wear your trousers slightly too short in order to expose a good inch of statement sock – these can be an unusual colour, overly long, an exuberant print, or just a bid odd. But never black.


3. Load up on daft jewellery

With rings and watches, way too much is never enough. Layer your wrists and fingers with accoutrements of at last half your own body weight.

4. Shoes: the bigger the better

The chunkiness of the shoe or boot should be inversely proportional to the thickness of the leg. Thus, very skinny females should wear footwear the size of traction engines.


5. Button up

Wear a gently creased shirt, buttoned right to the larynx. Leg-of-mutton sleeves optional.

6. Accessorise all areas

Always have one item that is silly. An animal–shaped bag, for instance, or a necklace of beads the size of tennis balls. Or indeed a necklace made of tennis balls.


7. Shoe it like a dude

If you’re a girl, wear very masculine shoes, such as brogues. Or hobnail boots. If you’re a man, wear spats.

8. Give good head

Wear a piece of statement millinery: a deerstalker or something like the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter is ideal.


9. Go a bit off colour

Wear colours somewhere near other shades that could be more easily identified. So, not yellow, but ‘chartreuse’, not purple, but ‘bruise’.

10. Be a bag lady

Carry a miscellaneous item that is not a bag, but serves the purpose of a bag. A bicycle basket, antique lunchbox or a violin case work well.
