BEAUTY: Gareth Pugh To Judge ‘Runway Nails’

Fresh from Fashion Week it’s time for a weekend and week of Beauty, kicking off with Beauty Olympia on the 20th-22nd of September. I always find the show a bit overwhelming, so many people trying to paint eyebrows on you… That being said, I’m really excited for the Nailympia London competition ,  especially the Runway Nails category which will be judged by controversial fashion designer Gareth Pugh. Nail … Continue reading BEAUTY: Gareth Pugh To Judge ‘Runway Nails’

FASHION: Brixton – Worth Heading South?

As a Shoreditch girl I’ve always been a strong advocate for East London design and fashion. But recently several suburbs south of the river have been giving Eat London a run for it’s money in the fashion stakes. One of these suburbs is Brixton, where locally based fashion designers Eley Kishimoto have unveiled a specially commissioned pavement graffiti, FLASH outside Brixton underground station, as part of the Brixton … Continue reading FASHION: Brixton – Worth Heading South?

FASHION: NZ Fashion Week: A View From The Other Side (Of The World)

I always feel nostalgic at this time of year, London has been my home for almost four years now, and while London Fashion Week is a great substitute, I will always miss New Zealand Fashion Week and the brands I grew up with. Unfortunately I’m not there in person this year, but here’s a few highlights from my favorite images and news, as seen on … Continue reading FASHION: NZ Fashion Week: A View From The Other Side (Of The World)

FASHION: GFW University Of East London

GFW had always been one if my favourite events on the fashion calendar. Student work is always fresh and exciting, free from the commercial binding of real world design. The University Of East London show was my favourite from the weekend. Krasimira Ivanova Stoyeneva had in my opinion the strongest collection (featured image) and Here are a few pics from the other collections I liked … Continue reading FASHION: GFW University Of East London

FASHION: Boohoo AW14 Press Day

Boohoo hosted their AW14 press day at One Marylebone last week with a bang, and a party bus. There was so many fun activities it was almost distracting from the clothes; fishing for rubber ducks, a live Instagram wall, a video message feature, hashtags on coffee cups…All very entertaining! Clothes wise Boohoo provided it’s audience with what it wants, trend led collections grouped into different … Continue reading FASHION: Boohoo AW14 Press Day

FASHION: Kiss Me Deadly

Fabulous Friday frivolity kicked off last week with a ‘catwalk extravaganza’ from Kiss Me Deadly lingerie. KMD always throw the best shows, (with past models including fire performers) so I knew the night would be no exception, and they didn’t disappoint. Combining cabaret, burlesque and lingerie is a winning formula. KMD knows it’s target customer and ensures their products are displayed on beautiful, talented and … Continue reading FASHION: Kiss Me Deadly

FASHION: From Sidewalk To Catwak

Last week I attended the media preview of the Barbicans new exhibition showcasing the designs of Jean Paul Gaultier. This theatrically-staged exhibition is unlike any other I have been to, bringing personality to each and every garment on display by using revolutionary projections alongside mannequins, bringing them to life. Talking faces, including one of Gaultier himself, are projected onto models so they wink, talk, and … Continue reading FASHION: From Sidewalk To Catwak

FASHION: ASOS AW14 Press Preview – Womenswear

The AW14 stories from ASOS have an overwhelming feeling of fun, exactly what we need to brighten up a dreary winter. Pop-art and cartoon style prints make an appearance, as do some glittertastic options. Pink is still a major player in both daywear and the Xmas party options. What a pity we have eight months to wait, I’ve got my eye on that pink sequinned … Continue reading FASHION: ASOS AW14 Press Preview – Womenswear

FASHION: ASOS AW14 Press Day – Menswear

I predict that men will be looking very sharp come Christmas. And I can say that with utter confidence because I’ve seen ASOS’s men’s AW14/15 collection… In April. Continuing with the current Americana craze (Five Guys Anyone?) there’s plenty of baseball inspired bomber jackets and sports luxe touches to the collections. Despite this American love there’s still a decent amount of British fan fair, with … Continue reading FASHION: ASOS AW14 Press Day – Menswear

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 5

Dear diary… On day five of LFW AW14 I joined a cult. The cult of K-T-Z. Things had begun to wind down, and those of us who’d been wearing heels for 5 days straight were feeling a little fatigued. But it was a refreshing wake up call to see the ever interesting K-T-Z show. The crowd at the show were predominantly hardcore fans. The thing … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 5

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 4

Dear dairy… Day four at London Fashion Week, or “Mega Monday” as the media have dubbed it, was a mixed bag of events. With the giant Burberry show catching everyone’s attention I couldn’t help feel a little sorry for the other, completely overshadowed, designers. I headed back to Somerset House for the David Korma show which was very much to my tastes. The designer’s signature … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 4

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 3

Dear diary… On day three of LFW I headed over to the Fashion Scout venue to seek out some fresh talent. Sunday was all about Felicities designers.

The hair and make up styling on this show was one of the most elaborate this season but … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 3

FASHION: LFW Diary Day 2

Dear diary, on day two of LFW I visited the lovely ladies in the M.A.C press lounge at Somerset House. I was given a 30 minute transformation including a bronze eye and a gothic “rebel” lip. Next up was a quick visit to the Shopcade Party bus where I was treated to a cheeky mojito and some good tunes. Then on to John Rocha, one … Continue reading FASHION: LFW Diary Day 2
