LFW S/S16 | House of MEA

Although stressful at times, interning as a PR girl over LFW certainly had its perks; perhaps the best being the all access pass I obtained whilst working the shows. Based in the beautiful Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden, during my five days with Fashion Scout I had the opportunity to attend some incredible shows such as Pam Hogg, Ashley Isham, Mimpikita and Marko Mitanovski. Below is one of my favourite snaps from over the week, taken at Maral Yazarloo's middle-eastern inspired collection for the House of MEA, featuring a plethora of bold colour palettes, intricate detailing and embroidered head dresses.

Beckham's New Direction

There's been a lot of controversy surrounding the Victoria Beckham show over the past 48 hours - from varying opinions on her half moon bag on social media, to a barrage of fierce criticism from the press regarding her questionable choice of 'skeletal' models. Despite the copious backlash the designer has received since debuting her new collection in NY on Sunday, I feel her S/S15 collection is one of her strongest to date. Moving away from her more traditional style of tailored silhouettes and 6-inch stilettos, this season's cachet consisted of fluted skirts and bold graphic prints, with every model sporting a pair of flat sandals or pumps. Below are some of my favourite looks from the show - not forgetting that half moon bag, perhaps to become one of the most coveted items in VB history.

Fashion Focus | Neckerchiefs

Despite usually deciding against wearing neckerchiefs in fear of looking like an air-hostess/cowboy, silk scarves are set to be a key transitional piece this season, and I sense they will become my go-to accessory when looking to update an otherwise tired ensemble. Whether it's classic Hermés silk or an old bandana from a thrift shop, next time your looking to accessorise an outfit add a neckerchief instead of a necklace to achieve a street-style worthy look even Olivia Palermo would be envious of.
