Elephantastic LONDON

I’m back from London - one of my favorite cities in the whole world. I think there’s no need to talk about London as one of the fashion capitals/ shopping paradise / multiculturalism etc.  Not even mentioning Royal family, red buses, Big Ben and other blahblahblah :)

In past 4 years I’ve been in London exactly 4 times and it always surprises and inspires me. This time it was all about elephants, flowers and food. Doesn’t sound very fashionably but actually it was. Seems like mission impossible for me to escape fashion related things/events. Wait… nooooo, I’m not complaining at all :)



As I mentioned above London was all about elephants – and, no, I didn’t go to zoo and didn’t spent all time there. From May till July London welcomes Elephant Parade - conservation campaign that shines a multi-coloured spotlight on the urgent crisis faced by the endangered Asian elephant. There were 258 painted elephants in locations across central London. Each decorated by a different artist, fashion designer or celebrity including Diane von Furstenberg, Isaac Mizrahi, Julien MacDonald, Lulu Guinness, Matthew Williamson, Tommy Hilfiger and many more. All elephants are for sale by auction. Ohhh I would love to have some couple in my garden :) and one in the office too...
 
This girl is one of my bestest friends forever. Thanks A. for a wonderful time :)

No really, those elephants were so adorable that I could literally squeeze one :) ELEPHANATSTIC!


Other not-really-but-kind-of-fashion-related event was Chelsea Flower Show. Ok I’m not into gardening at all but decorations of shop windows were aaaaaaaaamazing! I think the main theme was Alice in Wonderland (what a surprise?).



P.s. If you’re looking for a great place to have dinner, I highly suggest One-O-One seafood restaurant. The service was perfect (they literally filled my glass of water after one sip) and food was absolutely to die for. Check their menu – cooking is such a fabulous form of art :)

That’s all for now but later I will show you one absolutely fabulous not-really-but-kind-of-fashion-related present I got from my friend :)

Have an amazing not-really-but-kind-of-fashion-related weekend!
