Beautiful Soul, Basharatyan V, Neobotanic Fashion and Vita Gottlieb: London Fashion Week A/W 2013 Presentation Review

Four designers under the umbrella of Felicities PR agency shared the Portico Rooms space at Somerset House on Sunday 17th of February. Although very different their work was all equally elegant. Combined with the modelled looks were digital presentations of the designers' work, which can be seen below.

On Sunday night I popped back into town to stop in on the Felicities presentation. I was layered up even more substantially than earlier in the day so I managed to look extra ridiculous as I went in, juggling SLR (lent me by the acemazing Frances Bonnington), sketchbook, novelty felt hat, free lemonade and press releases while I struggled to rearrange myself into a more comfortable outfit. I've given up on trying to look cool in these situations. It did give me time to scope out the digital presentations and take a few photos of the models before speaking to the assembled designers though.
