Fashion Parade London 2015 - What I Wore and Best of the Rest

A few weeks ago I received an invitation to the 2015 Fashion Parade at the Saatchi Gallery in London. The event promised to be a "grand fashion show celebrating the finest fashion from South Asia", with collections from the likes of Pakistani designer Ali Xeeshan and Indian designer Anamika Khanna to name but a few!

I'll be posting my favourite looks from the catwalk soon, but first, here's what I wore to the event and some of my favourite looks from the very glamourous guests in attendance!

Having browsed the photos from the 2014 Fashion Parade I knew the style stakes were high and I that nothing I currently had in my wardrobe would suffice.

I was also on a bit of budget and didn't have time to buy a new asian outfit so I hit the high street in search of something I could style for a fusion look. It was just my luck that an email from H&M arrived in my inbox featuring this blue patterned kimono.

On the website, it was styled open, worn with shorts for a boho/festival look, however there was something about this top which reminded me of HSY's 2015 INK collection, which featured a number of draped kimono-style tops in blue:

I went to my nearest H&M to try it on and ended up buying it. On the day, I kept the rest of my look really simple with a blue silky vest underneath, indigo skinny jeans, dark pointy heels and a small blue and gold floral necklace, also from H&M.

Here are some of the looks from the other guests at the event:

Here's one last pic of me taken at the end of the evening, with Ziggi from Ziggi Menswear. A huge thanks to Blacklane who ensured I arrived in style at the event in one of their "Business Class" cars.
