From Lincoln Center to Somerset House, we’ve been catching up with more bloggers at fashion week to help us #repicturestyle
Wendy H Gilmour is the author of blog, thankfifi.com
How have things changed since your first fashion week?
The first time I came, I applied to go to absolutely everything and I went to everything I got an invite to! I was so exhausted afterwards, I decided to stop doing that and just pick the things I really wanted to go to and try and enjoy it a little more.
It can feel like hard work because I have a day job too. This year I’m only coming for two days but normally I come for four or five. It’s about quality not quantity!
What’s your day job?
I work in PR & Marketing for an interior textiles company. I do that part time and I do the blog full time. I love my day job though, I wouldn’t want to give it up.
Why did you start your blog?
I started it three years ago. Basically I was chatting with a friend about all the blogs we had read and she said that I should start one because I really liked fashion and photography and writing…so I did! My friend’s name is Fi so that’s why my blog is called Thank Fifi.
This season we’re challenging conventions of style. How would you describe yours?
I would say mine is pretty classic actually, I don’t follow trends per se but I have styles I really love like color blocking but I’m not big on print. I would say I’m 75% classic and 25% fashion victim!
Who do you think has a really distinct style?
Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper, she has amazing style. Also Taylor Tomasi Hill. I think her style is so great because it’s more about how she wears things than the thing itself. Lots of people get photographed at fashion week because they have this really expensive bag or they have amazing shoes but not everyone can buy that. Someone like Taylor Tomasi Hill takes things that are designer and turns the focus on how you put them together. I think that’s really great.
What do you think never goes out of style?
I think tailoring never goes out of style for women because you always look chic if you have something really well tailored – like with a cinched in belt or tailored trousers, a pencil skirt or a little flare skirt. Tailored items always looks great and are really flattering.
What are your top 3 trend tips heading into Autumn/Winter?
Culottes but even longer, almost like cropped wide trousers. The colour bottle green, which is bad for me because it was my high school blazer color! Lastly denim, it’s always a thing.
