I’m a huge vintage fan (aren’t we all) so was thrilled to learn that Dust were presenting collections from Rokit and Vintage Seekers and expected to be wowed. I felt honoured to be in the presence of original 1920’s flapper dresses worth £4000 and costume jewelry used in Hollywood classics such as Cleopatra. You can’t get better than that! Vintage seekers even loaned their pieces to the V&A museum for the Hollywood exhibition. Rokit had the usual quality and original pieces that they’re known for. The red box jacket is so me! Am picturing myself in it with a fitted black leather dress and killer heels. These days are great for outfit inspiration! Dust also presented the iconic Barbour, wacky Irregular Choice and the divine Catherine Deane- the latter being my new obsession!
Rockit including zebra print Manolo Blahniks and their new brogues (not vintage).
Hollywood glamour from Vintage Seekers including this snake bracelet worn by Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra.
Felicities presented a number of my favourite designers such as Ada Zanditon (who I interviewed last month), Beautiful Soul, David Longshaw. I also discovered that David Longshaw and one of my favourite jewelry designers, Kirsty Ward are an item (how cute!) even though its probably not new news for the fashion pack.
David Longshaw and the ever so fashionable Maude.
Finally I headed down to Blow PR’s day where the was an eclectic mix of spinal cord jewelry, Japanese gothic artistry and popping neon colours.
Bjorg Jewelry– not sure how I’d wear these sand filled glasses but I still love them!

My Fashion Press Week made me really reflect on how much talent we have in London and I love the bold and adventurous spirit that a lot of the collections have. Us Londoners are certainly not wall flowers. I’m counting down the days to London Fashion Week in September as in my humble opinion it is without doubt the worlds finest (being a Londoner is not making me biased at all).
