The event was held at The Penthouse in Leicester Square. I was worried I wouldn't find it but it was easy to spot by the huge queue of bloggers waiting outside!
The room was full of bloggers networking with brands. I spent so much time in queues and rushing around trying to speak to people that I didn't take many pictures and didn't get much time to speak to many bloggers either.
I had never been to a gifting event before so I didn't really know what it entailed. On one side of the room there were beauty companies having a chat to bloggers about their companies. I found the beauty companies a lot more approachable and had a chat to people from Montana Tan, RUSH Hair and Optimus Marketing (who represent clients such as The Jewel Hut, Elemis, IKRUSH and lots more) and took away some lovely goody bags which I can't wait to review the contents of!
There were also lots of fashion companies there. I enjoyed looking at their collections but found some more difficult to approach and network with. Some were also very selective about who they spoke to and gifted products to (obviously I'm not a huge fashion blogger so I wasn't expecting anything but, strangely, there were a lot of former X Factor and Big Brother contestants there that the companies were very keen to give clothes to so they could get papped in them). I pepersonally value the opinion of a blogger much more than a "celeb".
After a busy night browsing the many stalls and racks Bloggers Love then held a fashion show to showcase some of the different brands and companies that were at the event. By this point I was dead on my feet and headed off to meet a friend who lives in London and we had a lovely dinner at Hummus Bros!
Then it was time to head home! These were just some of the lovely things I got in my goodie bag from the night. I received a £5 gift card for The Jewel Hut which I am looking forward to spending and also a full size bottle of Montana Tan which I can't wait to try out. I also picked up a gorgeous black sequin skirt from Valour & Valkyrie - I adore their collections!
Did you attend any events during London Fashion Week? I'd love to see your posts on them!
