Louisa Drake is a force to be reckoned with. A fitness expert, business founder and a serious source of lifestyle inspo, Louisa recently launched LDM, a fitness and lifestyle brand built on the principles of her own inclusive training method and her no-nonsense approach to health and wellness.   

We caught up with her to find out more about LDM, her motivations and of course, her style both in and out of the studio…   

So how does your method work? How can LDM sessions influence your lifestyle?  

At LDM we focus on body confidence and effective training techniques that educate clients on what their individual bodies need. My Method offers a host of fitness disciplines – cardio, conditioning, resistance and stretch – to keep the mind and body guessing and strengthen the muscles you use daily.   

Our whole approach is to encourage confidence, so the Fitzrovia and Muswell Hill studios are a welcoming space where our instructors will calmly guide you through a class, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and well worked, but never worked up and stressed.  

Who can take part in LDM classes?  

LDM classes are accessible to anyone, regardless of their experience, fitness level, shape or size. We have two boutique studios in London, where you can access small group classes and private training daily. We also have LDM online video subscriptions and range of fitness equipment and apparel for taking part at home.  

What inspired you to launch LDM – tell us about your journey...   

After a professional dance career I started to transition into teaching dance and fitness. I was known for my unique style and had several disciplines under my belt but I realised there was something lacking from the workouts I was doing as a client at other gyms and studios.  

I saw a gap for doing things my way and created LDM. After combining the best bits of popular disciples such as yoga, HIIT, Pilates to name just a few I created my signature total body workout that ticks all the boxes in one session – the Shape Changer, the perfect balance of cardio and conditioning material.   

Next month we celebrate our first birthday at our Fitzrovia studio which offers a range of LDM classes that are constantly being fine tuned to suit our clients’ needs.  

What does the word ‘wellness’ mean to you?  

Wellness really sums up being at your optimal best physically and mentally. For me it’s about finding the right balance – time to focus on my changing needs, to honour my own rhythms and have the energy to achieve everything I need.  

What motivates you to get out of bed in the morning?

My clients. Most mornings I’m either up early teaching group classes or I’m with a private client. The occasion I have a morning free, I’ll top up on sleep or schedule some time for myself on the mat.  

How important do you think physical health is to how happy and confident we feel?

Massively important. It should be the main reason you choose to work out and aesthetics are the bonus. The natural high we get from exercise is what keeps you committed.  

What about fashion and style – can what we wear make us happy?  

Absolutely, wearing something that helps you feel happy will be the reason your posture improves which will then be part of the reason your confidence improves and you carry yourself differently. You can express yourself through fashion and your own unique take on it. 

What are your feel-good outfits for work, the weekend and going out?  

I spend a lot of time in activewear and when I'm working out and training clients it’s all about supportive, feel-good fabrics. I select a sweat-wicking product that’s going to work hard for me when I’m back to back and versatile items that mean after a quick change I’m ready to go from studio to meeting.   

When I’m off-duty it’s a mix of denim, fun prints, slogan tees and a vintage feel is always present in my style. For going out I add some standout accessories, switch a trainer for shoe and opt for a dress or cool jumpsuit.  

What about your favourite brands?

Activewear brands such as Sweaty Betty, Lululemon, Lucas Hugh, Nike and Adidas keep me supported and stylish. For tees and sweaters I like British brand Double Trouble Gang – we collaborated on some limited edition LDM sweaters & hoodies. I also love brands such as Etre Cecile and Sezane for an injection of fun prints and slogan pieces.   

Free People, Reformation, ADAY, Faithfull the brand, Ganni and the Vampire’s Wife are labels I gravitate towards. I have some great jackets from Zoe Karssen, Whistles and Acne and my accessories are a mix of high street, vintage and investment pieces from Hill and Friends, Sezane, Laura Lee and Missoma.  

I’m often in trainers by Adidas, Nike and APL and I’m currently loving the Stella McCartney x Adidas Parley shoes made from recycled ocean plastics – they work for all cardio based workouts. Veja make eco-friendly Parisian cool trainers that I like for off-duty and I also like Russell & Bromley, Birkenstock, Soludos, Hobbs and Miu Miu.  

What’s next for you and for LDM? 

Plans are underway to open a bigger standalone LDM studio in London where clients can still benefit from small boutique group fitness and private training with more space and amenities. We have some exciting opportunities in the pipeline and I’m working hard to build up our online LDM video offerings, so we are accessible not just in London but anywhere and at anytime. Watch this space…

One of the best things about fall is picking a new pair of boots. But which to choose? The decision can be tricky, so we’ve rounded up this year's hottest boot trends. These are the styles you’re about to see everywhere... 


Most wanted 

Thanks to the likes of Calvin Klein and Chloé, cowboy boots are having a serious moment. Influencers are wearing Western styles with everything from printed dresses to denim, and they’ve never looked cooler. 

Go wild

You probably know by now that animal print is going to be huge, but the easiest way to wear it is on a pair of boots. Whether you choose faux snakeskin or a leopard-print pair, they’ll add an instant rock ‘n’ roll edge to any outfit. Show them off by rolling up the cuffs of your jeans. 

Made for walking 

The fall equivalent of this year’s sought-after ‘dad’ sneakers? Hiking boots. That’s right – practical walking shoes are officially cool, and our feet are so thankful for it. The trick to nailing this trend is balancing the chunky shape with a feminine dress.

On point 

Balenciaga’s ‘Knife’ boots are a cult favorite on the street style scene, and now sharp point-toe styles are everywhere. Look for high-shine patent leather or sleek burgundy hues and use them to dress up relaxed denim. 

Shop the edit below for a new-season update to your boot line-up…

Slip dresses have had a very flashy upgrade. Yes it is Autumn, yes the weather is cold… I know! But quite frankly, fashion doesn’t care. This season, unlike the others, fashion is using bold colours and light fabrics for winter! I don’t know why but I’m slowly liking it. If you’re a bold statement maker kind of gal, you will love this neon satin dress trend. Half from the nineties, half from the eighties this trend is a perfect duo of the decades. Imagine your eighties neon tracksuits in a nineties slip dress. Yep! That’s the style. Your party style is ready miladies! #trend #neon #slipdress #dress #satin #silk #fashion #streetstyle #style

Now that September's here and New York Fashion Week has graced us once again, it’s time to reflect on the trends we saw on the runways and get excited about wearing them in real life. Here’s our round-up of the top ten trends we loved at NYFW and the ones you'll be seeing everywhere...  


Animal print  

Already spotted on our favorite street style stars, animal prints ruled the New York runways. Tom Ford’s came in every shape and color you could imagine, but classic leopard patterns still dominate – see Victoria Beckham’s timeless coats.  

Western boots

From slouchy over-the-knee shapes to classic cowboy styles, plenty of Western boots were worn on the runway this season. Whichever you choose, show them off with cropped denim or maximalist dresses.  

Checks  

They may be nothing new, but checks are about to have a major moment. Michael Kors and Calvin Klein 205W39NYC both showed punk-inspired tartan coats – we’ll be wearing them with denim and chunky boots.   

Logomania

Logo prints have ruled the street style circuit for several seasons now, and they’re not going anywhere – Alexander Wang’s embellished tracksuits and Tom Ford’s sequined sweatshirts are proof if proof were ever needed.   

Neon 

Already championed by Kim Kardashian, neon brights popped up everywhere. We loved Calvin Klein’s industrial-style jackets and Tibi’s fluorescent sweaters teamed with low-key camel tailoring.    

‘70s brown 

Coach and Self-Portrait both showed plenty of ‘70s-inspired brown hues, proving the trend has serious staying power. Try a belted coat or midi dress for a timeless feel.   

Colorful suiting

Navy and black will no longer do – suits this season came in every color possible. From candy pinks to pastel blues, any shade goes as long as you’re wearing it from head to toe.   

‘80s maximalism

Tom Ford proved the ‘80s are here to stay for another season with purple leopard-print leggings, sequins and shoulder pads.    

Modern sports 

Sportswear is now a staple on the runway, and this season it came in sleek silhouettes with industrial details – think quilted nylon midi skirts and oversized drawstring pants.   

The new utility 

Military-inspired pieces make their way onto the catwalk every fall, and with good reason: a classic double-breasted coat or khaki jacket will never go out of style.

It’s official: the colour of autumn 2018 is undisputedly orange. Whether you rock a neon shade or a rich vintage-inspired hue, orange is the cheerful champion of our cool-weather line-ups…   


Successfully wearing the colour is, however, easier said than done. It’s a bold shade and one that’s best sported with an all-or-nothing approach. We looked to our editors for a few tips on how to nail the autumnal trend sweeping Instagram.  

Oversized  

A statement colour calls for a statement silhouette so go big or go home with this one, literally. Think oversized duster coats and puffer styles, flared or wide-leg trousers and boxy shirts and tees. A maxi dress or skirt is always a winner too.  

Utilitarian  

The sporty, utility-inspired trend is big for AW18 so think less ‘70s corduroy and more futuristic crepe and lamé. Try sporting simple culottes with a cropped metallic jacket or opt for a simple military-inspired look with a button-down shirt and straight-leg trousers in bright orange tones. 

Androgynous  

Gender fluidity is back and here to stay this season. Rock your orange pieces in simple silhouettes and cool, understated layers. Give sports-luxe a go with an orange varsity jacket, trending camouflage prints and matching chunky-soled sneakers.   

Colour blocked

Brave enough to try head-to-toe orange? Be sure to stay consistent with your choice of shade. Whether you opt for a pop-bright tone or a pale peachy orange, match your ensemble exactly to nail this season’s hottest colour trend.

A recent Instagram post of Kim Kardashian already has over three million likes (and counting) – while that may be to do with the fact she looks great, we think the neon-pink dress she’s wearing definitely helps.   

Blame Balenciaga – the label kicked off the trend on the Paris runway – but everyone is rocking this look right now. Kim K has since been spotted in a series of more neon looks, along with her sister Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid and Blake Lively. Convinced yet?   

This micro trend is part of the ‘80s theme seen across plenty of Fall ‘18 collections, and it’s the perfect way to refresh your fall wardrobe – an antidote to a usually understated season of gray, black and navy.   

So, want to know how to wear neon satin now? It’s easier than you think. For Monday to Friday, take your styling cues from the Balenciaga runway and try a fluorescent top under a tailored jacket for a subtle flash of color.   

When it comes to the weekend, try neon-striped track pants or high-vis sneakers for an instant off-duty refresh. At night, anything goes: a neon satin clutch, a pair of pumps or a figure-hugging dress is all you need to make an impact.   

Shop our favourite silky neon pieces below and nail the look for yourself…

If there is a key item for Fall, it might be printed midi dresses. Wear it with your knee-high boots or style it with blazers. Add some printed dresses to your wardrobe and you won’t have the problem of finding something to wear. Why? Because you can take these looks from day to night. Style it with heels and statement jewellery and you’re ready for a night out! Or wear it with combat boots and jean jackets to get the cool girl vibes. #mididress #dress #style #print #pattern #streetstyle #fashion #trend
