Day 2 of my report from London during London Fashion Week 2010

DAY 2
Almost the entire day was spend in the gallery along with Mada van Gaans, Bas Kosters, Non by Kim and employees of the Dutch Fashion Foundation. The rainy weather did not stop us from exploring the well known Dover Street Market at the end of the day. Little did we know, that Dover Street Market was not that known by the folks on the streets, which made it a little harder to find.  Nevertheless, we were unstoppable.  

WINDOW SHOPPING
We were asthonished by the beautiful shops at Bondstreet (Mulberry! Miu Miu! Chanel!) and got overexited by the beautiful windows. Dover Street Market was a pleasure for the eye aswell. The beautiful garments by Comme des Garçons, Peter Pilotto, Azzedine Alaia, Hussein Chalayan and Lanvin in combination with the explicit shoes by Pierre Hardy got our creative minds work.  

VINTAGE
When in London, you can’t go without at least one visit to a vintage store. Tired of strolling around through the rain, we took a cab to Brick Lane: a street filled with vintage shops and all sorts of cute restaurants and bars. And not just that, there were also lots of boutiques with a special range of diversity of labels like Margiela, Balenciage and more.  

DINNERTIME
Of course, we enjoyed a typical English meal once again (pizza…) we got into a biological Italian restaurant that was a interiour shop aswell. Along with the Dutch designers we enjoyed our very tasty light pizza. Mmm! 

BEDTIME
All in all: a day in sign of research. Fabrics, labels, windows and stores where Dutch design would fit well!
