Autumn & winter fashion has long been a favourite of mine - I'm always the first to whip out tights and snap up new boots as soon as the trees begin to show signs of dropping leaves. Dark and cold nights just seem to demand sumptuous fabrics, glistening metallics, duochrome shades and witchy lace. Ong-Oaj Pairam feels no different, it seems, as his stunning autumn/collection appealed to all of my senses - including smell with one of the most inventively scented invites I've ever seen! Fast becoming a favourite of mine, I could hardly contain my excitement when I was invited to attend his autumn/winter catwalk show as the Grand Connaught hotel last night.
Above are just some of my favourite looks, but in truth I could have happily shared all of them, I adored them all. The collection just brought together everything I enjoy about sumptuous autumnal dressing, but I also thought a lot of it was quite wearable, especially the more streamlined silhouettes and midi lengths - I only wish my work wardrobe could be half as elegant! Also my penchant for a nice faux fur coat has now trebled, especially given the chilly temperatures we're still experiencing in London...
Beauty-wise I had major hair envy, the 70s-inspired float ethereal curls were simply beautiful on every model. As a perennial red-lip-lover I fully appreciated this look and I can't lie, part of me kept thinking of Taylor Swift's current look as the aesthetic was very similar. Also pleased to see sharp brows worn throughout, I do appreciate a good brow!
I'll pop some of my other photos up on my Pinterest later as I was so pleased with my position, I sat right where the models came out so got a first glimpse of every look - what more can a girl ask for?
What do you think of these looks? Have you got any Fashion Week faves?
