It’s Friday today and I am still recovering from the hustle and bustle of last weekend’s London Collections: Men fashion show. I love weekends like last week. I get to see the best of what fashion has to offer and meet like-minded people who share my passion and creativity. I get a sneak peak of what’s coming up in men’s fashion and get to deliver that to all of you. If you haven’t done so already, check out my post on LCM.

See, I told you everything that needs to be said from a generic perspective has been said already. However, there are two aspects of my visit I would like to share with you all. This is purely from a personal perspective and can truly say I was blown away them. The hospitality and the food of the Turks is like none other.
