I'm back in Bahrain now and honestly missing London a lot more than I thought I would.. This short trip just made me want to move back to my little house in Portobello, and wake up to reggae music playing on the street outside every weekend.
Vogue Fashion Festival, meetings, seeing friends, my sister meeting me in London, shopping, Brick Lane, Portobello Road, William Richard Green presentation at the V&A.. Let's just say I had to catch up on a lot of sleep when I got back.
So back to #VogueFest. If you're following me on twitter and instagram you would've read the countless tweets covering the first time, two day event. It wasn't a festival per se, I think the best word would be seminar as the days were packed with discussion panels and talks with the likes of Tom Ford, David Bailey, Stella McKartney, Dolce & Gabbana, DVF, Tim Walker, Alexandra Shulman, Lucinda Chambers, Simone Rocha, Mary Katrantzou, Nicholas Kirkwood, J.W Anderson (and the list goes on..). I'd say that it was even more motivational than educational, and it was an opportunity to get a glimpse of their lives/what goes on in their creative little heads.
Besides my extremely detailed tweets on @glaregypsy, here are some pictures from the event!
