Back in September. London Fashion Weekend 2013

We all know that London Fashion Week is a massive, highly important fashion event not only for the British fashion industry, but for the whole fashion world. Fashion week is always for professionals and tends to be very exclusive.
Here, in London, Fashion Week is followed by London Fashion Weekend. This "Fashion Holiday" is affordable and accessible for the public. You can buy a ticket to attend a catwalk show of a brand or a designer, take part in workshops and to attend talks.
Today, I am recalling my LFWeekend 2013. I attended Julien MacDonald show. He presented a series of gorgeous dresses. I also met Hilary Alexander, who told about her work on photo shoots. She also shared some amusing stories from the sets and gave advice on how to find yourself in fashion journalism and glossy magazines. Hilary Alexander is a huge inspiration for me. She is so real and down-to-earth. She just enjoys her job that she does amazingly.
