⚡Living in the London Edge ⚡
What happens when you get struck down with more illnesses than the original man actually made-of-metal (sorry Rob Halford)??
|This dude is so metal it hurts \m/|
… You end up spending so much time on the World Wide Web that you crawl faster than Spidergoth crawls on a Venom vinyl at his local record store.
With this wonderfully naff analogy in mind, picture me ending up randomly stumbling upon this event called London Edge, an alternative fashion trade event for trade wholesalers and bloggers. I had never heard of such event, and, just reading through the list of brands genuinely got my blood pressure pumping so fast, I could have fed the entire Twilight cast of sequin vampires within an hour.
And there I am, 2 days after the event, high as a kite from all the candy, gorgeousness and groovy vibes !
First things first, it always makes me cackle a la Morticia when people associate “alternative” with moody Charlie Chaplin Goths. I mean…look at the below… So many eye catching colorful stalls ! That is what Alternative is to me, a vast array of options, aesthetics, from a wide spectrum of colors, styles and perspectives. Endless possibilities away from cookie cutter pre-determined looks.
No, because my buddy#photoshopexpress works faster than any moisturing cream 😅.
This event was absolutely amazing and I really have to thank the organisers for allowing us bloggers the opportunity to attend the event. It really inspired me for my brand and my side projects. I am hoping to be behind one of the stalls next year…
In the meantime here are a few after event pics, taken in the restaurant me and the girls went to chill at post London Edge… I WANT THAT WALLPAPER!!
