Firstly I have to say that Im so sorry for not being able to post about this sooner, but unfortunately my internet was pretty much non-existent while I was away! So now that I am finally able to blog properly again, its time to show let you guys in on all the gossip from the House of Holland show, which I went over to cover for Pretty Polly! It was such an amazing experience, and although I cant show you the finished video just yet, here are some of the behind-the-scenes snaps in the meantime to fill you in on all the fun!
First things first, here’s what I wore for the show! I wanted something comfortable and functional as I knew I would be running around, but I also wanted to be happy with my outfit, so I chose a recently purchased New Look maxi skirt with a double slit at the front (€10 on sale- JOB!) and teamed that with an American Apparel crop top. I finished the look off with my trusty ASOS leather leopard print jacket, which I am still hopelessly in love with! 🙂
Armed with my blogger pass, Im ready to go!
The show was held in an underground car-park, it was the coolest location, and there was an army of Henrys standing guard outside the show entrance!
Here I am amongst all the chaos, look how many photographers and press there are there, and that wasn’t even all of them, crazy stuff!
As soon as the show started I immediately fell in love with this seasons collection, it was so fresh and colourful, in typical House of Holland Style! This season’s designs were entitled “Buzz Kill”, and the collection took inspirations from both the glamour and grunge of the 90’s. It boasted some fun and quirky little pieces, including this t-shirt below which I loved, as well as some beautiful tie dye silks and metallic prints!
The front-row pack (or FROW, as its commonly called) was particularly impressive this year, with Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung, Poppy Develigne, Leigh Lezark and Nicola Roberts among guests. The wonderful Laura Whitmore (whom I had the pleasure of meeting on LFW Day 1) was also back stage broadcasting live for eBay!
I also had a quick chat with Henrys lovely Mum Stephanie again, she is such a sweet lady, I swear she gets prouder of him ever year! She also looks absolutely fabulous all decked out in his collections, might I add 🙂
It was so amazing to be in the midst of all the madness and interviews, I sort of wish I had a proper microphone for my camera, as in situations like this one, you really need one for sound purposes!
I also caught up with the wonderful Pixie Geldof again, who was super excited for Henry’s new collection, she even managed to get a sneak peak before the show, the lucky thing! She couldn’t have been sweeter, its always a pleasure chatting to her 🙂
I also chatted to the rather dashing Brendan Courtney, who was at the show filming for Off the Rails, and boy was he working it like a pro! Its amazing to watch him interact with all the guests and stars, I could really learn alot from him, he’s so warm and charismatic. Here’s a snap of him with my partner-in-crime Byron, who also acted as my cameraman for the whole trip!
Getting to see Henry showcase his designs for a second time was such an amazing experience, and it was even more hectic than last time, if you can believe it! I absolutely relished the experience however, and loved every minute of the madness. As I said after last seasons experience, its made me realize even more that this type of work is what I want to do, all day everyday! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for the video, its coming soon I promise! More photos and info on the fashion show here
