Christopher Raeburn LCM 2015


Just before I broke up from uni for the christmas holidays we were told that we had to think about who our favourite designers were. For me thats an easy answer, Henry Holland, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel and Christopher Raeburn. I have always been a HUGE fan of Raeburn from the moment I saw his map prints for coats, I just love a map print! Last september this little blog allowed me the opportunity to attend his womenswear show at somerset house for LFW and I had an amazing time. I thought it would be once in a lifetime and was extremely grateful for that opportunity. Thursday lunchtime this week I got a letter in the post addressed to myself with a ticket to the Christopher Raeburn LCM show. I was over the moon and of course RSVP'd with a huge almighty YES. So yesterday (Saturday 10th Jan 2015) I trundled off to London with my parents, who showed me the way and then sat in the nearest Pret for two hours waiting for me, on the way to the Raeburn show. The show started at 6 but I got there at 5:15 and was waiting in the queue. Like all of these things I didn't expect anything but was grateful to have been invited and on their official guest list. When the line had quietened down a little bit I got inside and actually managed to squeeze onto a bench and had a fantastic view. I loved the showroom. The theme of the show was 'Raft' and the noises as you walked in really added to the atmosphere of this theme. It sounded like splashing water, not good if you needed the toilet like I did!

The collection consisted of shark motifs, fitted knitwear, shark inflatable bags (amazing!), blow up inflatable bomber jackets, mittens, camo prints, sharks tooth prints and a red, blue and black colour theme. Overall the show was amazing and although being menswear It has given me a few inspirations and ideas of my own that I am hoping to use when thinking of my next collection for my university projects.

I want to give another huge thanks to Christopher Raeburn and his Pr team for inviting me to the show again. I had an amazing time and can't praise it enough! Heres to February LFW, can't wait to randomly receive that invite in the post as well!?!

Hope you are all well!
Love,
