At weekend I ventured into London. On the Saturday I went to some fashion talks at the Victoria & Albert museum in the morning. In the afternoon my friend and I decided to tackle Oxford Street to go shopping, which was not a good idea – it was the busiest I have ever seen, it was a challenge finding your way anywhere!.
It was the 1st December on Sunday, therefore my friends and I found it acceptable to finally go to the Christmas markets and embrace the festive ambience.
Here are some pictures I took over the weekend.
One of Selfridges magical window displays. One of my favourite windows, largely down to the fact the centre piece is a huge YSL clutch bag.
Selfridges Kenzo parachutes
Selfridges window display featuring a huge Charlotte Olympia slipper.
Selfridges – oh imagine owning a giant bottle of flower bomb perfume?
Selfridges always does bigger and better. Even its headphones are bigger and better.

The attention is always on Big Ben
The river Thames and of course the London Eye.

The fudge looks too tempting

Here are some pictures of a recent visit to London. My friend and I spent the day walking the streets finding specific retailers for a project on our course and ‘fashion sightseeing’ despite the rather dull, drab, rainy weather. Admittedly we did get a little distracted by all the beautiful clothes and jewels we saw. Well who wouldn’t get a little carried away?

The rain doesn’t stop the hustle and bustle on Bond Street
Oh… Bond Street why do you always looks so glamorous?
Where better to take a moment to rest and gather your thoughts than surrounded by luxurious clothes in Burberry Prorsum?
