London Fashion Weekend experience
Gaining access to the international fashion event, all three winners, Lucy Rance, Colline Muchets and Whitney Mwaanga, praised SFD London for giving them the opportunity. Muchets, who defined her winning fashion style as “simple, girly and flirty”, said: “I’m really looking forward to this evening to see what everyone is wearing… what interests me most about fashion is the way everybody puts all their pieces together, it’s amazing that so many different people can carry off different styles.”
Describing her winning style as “bold, crazy and wacky”, Mwaanga added: “I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone is wearing and finding out how their style is influenced by their culture and where they come from.” Finally, fashion blogger Rance labelled her winning style as “different and eclectic” and said London Fashion Weekend was “an opportunity to get inspiration from other people”.
