London Fashion Week: House of CCUOCO’s Persephone Collection

San Francisco-based brand House of CCUOCO made yet another splash at London Fashion Week this season.

After getting to witness the beauty of the Spring/Summer 2015 collection in person last year, I was excited to see what the Spring/Summer 2016 season would hold.

Designer Candice Cuoco took a brief hiatus from designing for House of CCUOCO this Spring to design for – Drumroll please – Project Runway! It’s been a blast watching her conquer challenge after challenge each week and I can’t wait for the exciting conclusion.

{San Francisco bragging note: We have not one but TWO designers showing off their skills this season on Project Runway – Jake Wall of Jake Clothing as well as Candice Cuoco of House of CCUOCO}

Sitting in San Francisco viewing pictures may be a far cry from standing backstage at a runway show as I did last season, but they took my breath away nonetheless.

Fashion Week Inspiration

I’m beside myself with excitement for my upcoming trip to London for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Not only do I utterly adore London, but I get to watch my brilliant friend, San Francisco fashion designer Candice Cuoco, show her CCUOCO collection!

I’ve attended NYFW before but this will be my first time at London Fashion Week, so wat’s the first thing that I did after making the decision to go? Buy my dream bag and start planning my outfits, of course! And no, common sense is not a factor when it comes to handbags. 🙂

I love visual inspiration and Pinterest immediately became one of my favorite social media platforms when it launched. Keep scrolling for some of my London Fashion Week inspiration!
