To celebrate the glorious festivities of London Fashion Week (the best week in my calendar), I’m rounding up the top seven people you’re most likely to encounter at the event, no matter which one you attend around the globe.
Fashion Week is well and truly under way and we are buzzin’. The fun, FROW (and fashion, obvs) kicked off last week in New York, with shows in London from the 17th February and then onto Milan and Paris.
Down style struggle street? Don’t be – we’ve got this in the bag…
Vogue 100 Comes to Manchester
You may know Manchester as a city of industry, you score extra points if you’ve got the 411 on its colourful musical history, but, have you ever thought about it as a capital of culture? No, it’s time to start, seriously! Home to boohoo HQ, boasting a huge multi-media art centre, tonnes of galleries and some of the best bars and cafes in the UK, Manchester is the new place to see and be seen.
Need more proof? Well, Vogue 100: A Century of Style has just hit town and when Vogue comes, you kind of have to take notice. Showing right now at Manchester Art Gallery, the exhibition celebrates 100 years of Vogue in Britain through the many iconic photographs commissioned by the magazine.
Another day another set of stylish street fashion we just can’t get enough of thanks to the fab snapping of photographer David Nyanzi. Get inspired by how the GFW do and get their look for less…

We sent M’pho Lebojoa to Wild Life fest… here’s what she had to say
The sister festival to Parklife in Manchester, I thought this one would be a more low-key affair. But after riding on the shuttle bus to the nearest drop off point, I was amazed to see the mass people waiting in the queues…
We entered the festival via the main entrance and were greeted by a loud progressive beat, this was the ‘WHP Presents’ stage, my favourite stage all weekend (Sunday’s line up was the most alluring) and the best set design by far, a white grand structure sort of resembling a block of apartments with large screens displaying visuals. As you walked further into the festival, you were met by glitter covered girls of course stacked in their temporary festival tattoos and face jewels. The attire was a majority of denim cutoffs and bodysuits, a few fringed jackets, lace dresses and unitards, but whether the weather permitted or not, some skin was definitely to be shown! For the guys it seems that bucket hats are making a return this summer, dart your eyes into the crowd and you are for sure to spot a few bucket hats floating on the youthful festival goers.
One thing that was highly noticeable was the youthfulness of the crowd. It seemed that the majority was a younger demographic ranging from 14-19, I noticed they were mainly huddled at the main stage during performances by the likes of Skepta, James Bay and Bastille as well as the Big Top stage when Flume performed his set. Nonetheless, the energy and vibe were great, and with an unlimited supply of hotdogs, burgers and slushies, it was set to be a great day!
