The fantastic London Edge was held at Kensington Olympia West from the 1st- 3rd Feb 2015 and did not disappoint. This Expo is dedicated to the alternative and subcultures showcasing brands upcoming collections for on point alternative fashions, make-up and style; these included leading and influential brands such as Voodoo Vixen, Jawbreaker, Iron Fist, Collectif to name just a few!

The crowds were buzzing with press, models, fashion buyers, bloggers and many more! Spirits were high and the day was filled with catwalk shows, make-overs, inspiring people and brands. A great place to get style inspiration and to meet people passionate about the alternative scene.

I was lucky enough to attend the bloggers meet-up for the first time where the fabulous Kat Williams of Rock n’ Roll Bride gave us a talk about where it all started, how to reach your goals and how to drive your blog to be successful. She advises to blog about what you really love, care about and are passionate about. Kat and some of her favourite bloggers who became firm friends have teamed together to create the Blogcademy to help aspiring and current bloggers to reach their full potential with great advice, hints, tips and blog reviews. Something I’m most definitely interested in attending!
