Notes from inside SHOW Dry

Yep, it’s that time of year again where the fantastical spectacle that is London Fashion Week rolls into town and everyone has a whole lot of fun. Well, fun and a crazy 24/7 week of work. Here are the rules I’ve honed over the years that get me through it in style…

Comfort is key.I couldn’t live without a pair of comfy jeans during LFW. Crucially, they must have pockets in which to stash everything from my phone to brushes as I work. Topshop Joni jeans fit the bill so I wear them throughout the week paired with Jimmy Choo trainers to liven things up a bit.

Get Techy.I always have a portable wireless charger on me for my app-drained phone - Moon Beam from Chick Gadgets UK is the one I buy as it doubles up as a hand warmer. I always need a camera so I can take pictures (and selfies!) on the go, so pack my Samsung NX mini, which fits in my pocket and has a handy flip up screen so you can check how you look before snapping.

Tie Back Hair.I either do this in a slick ponytail or inverted fresh braids - both stay put all day and look stylish. I tend to slick a little Pure Treatment Oil across my hair to keep fly aways at bay.

Do Get Lippy.A good quality liquid lipstick makes my life so much easier. I use Huda Beauty’s Liquid Lipstick in pink Gossip Girl. It’s bright and cheery and I can rely on it being there at the end of the day when the rest of my make-up has disappeared.

Up Your Energy Boosters.Bananas, cereal bars and anything with oats in are great sources of speedy energy and I keep them in my bag at all times!

… And If You Carry Everything But The Kitchen Sink. Opt for a gym bag that is spacious but also trendy - I like the Louis Vuitton gym bag because it doesn’t make me look like I’m about to go on a weekend break but fits all my kit in.
