Hey guys!Ciara O'Doherty at House of Holland LFW show

Phew! I just got back from an amazing week at London Fashion Week, covering the House of Holland SS13 catwalk show for Pretty Polly to bring you all the Gossip! It was such an amazing experience, and although I cant show you the finished video just yet, here are some of the behind-the-scenes snaps in the meantime to fill you in on all the fun!

First things first, here’s what I wore for the show...

I wanted something comfortable and functional as I knew I would be running around, but I also wanted to be happy with my outfit, so I chose a recently purchased metallic maxi skirt with a double slit at the front teamed with a black crop top and my leather leopard print jacket. Of course I had my black Pretty Polly opaque tights on to stop the slits in the maxi skirts from showing off a bit too much leg!

So, armed with my blogger pass, I'm ready to go into the madness! The show was held in a secret location, which was an underground car park - it was the coolest location ever! There even was an army of Henry's standing guard outside the show entrance.

Amongst all the chaos, I cant help but marvel at how many photographers and press there are - and that wasn’t even all of them, crazy stuff!

As soon as the show started I immediately fell in love with this seasons collection, it was so fresh and colourful, in typical House of Holland style! This season’s designs were entitled “Buzz Kill”, and the collection took inspirations from both the glamour and grunge of the 90′s. It boasted some fun and quirky little pieces, including this t-shirt below which I loved, as well as some beautiful tie dye silks and metallic prints!

The front-row pack (or FROW, as its commonly called) was particularly impressive this year, with  Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung, Poppy Develigne, Leigh Lezark and Nicola Roberts among guests.

The wonderful Laura Whitmore was also back stage broadcasting live for eBay.

I had a quick chat with Henry's lovely Mum, Stephanie, again. She is such a sweet lady, I swear she gets prouder of him ever year!  She also looks absolutely fabulous all decked out in his collections, might I add!

It was amazing to be in the midst of all the madness and interviews, I sort of wish I had a proper microphone for my camera, as in situations like this one, you really need one for sound purposes.

I also caught up with the wonderful Pixie Geldof again, who was super excited for Henry’s new collection, she even managed to get a sneak peak before the show, the lucky thing! She couldn’t have been sweeter, it's always a pleasure chatting to her.

After seeing what his Spring/Summer '13 collection will be, I absolutely CANNOT WAIT to see what he has in store for his Pretty Polly tights collaboration, by the looks of things, its going to be the best one yet!

Stay tuned to the Pretty Polly Blog for the video from the show, coming soon.
