Victoria_LFW.jpgFashion Week has always been a highlight for fashion students in NYC. Now, being in London and doing an internship with the company THEN & NOW, I had the opportunity to attend London Fashion Week.

I knew that someday throughout my career I would have the opportunity to sit at New York Fashion Week as a guest, but never did I think that I would be able to sit front row at London Fashion Week!

It is pretty rare that an intern gets the opportunity to attend big events in the fashion industry, however,THEN & NOW is rather small so I got the chance to go to the shows. It was so much fun getting dressed up and walking into the shows and presentations. (Not to mention the free goodie bags you get!) It was a whirlwind of a weekend running between shows but it something I will never forget!

Victoria_LondonFashionWeek2016.jpgI even got to sit in the front row at a few shows. (THEN & NOW definitely has some nice perks!)  As a buyer I watched the shows and decided on the brands that I think would do well on our site.

I picked out my favorite key pieces from the collections and then followed up with the brands the next day to connect. I also created trend reports for my companies blog, which you can see here: Women's London Fashion Week AW16 and Men's Fashion Week AW16
