Graduate Fashion Week 2015, Centro / Ouverture

IMG_20150602_113902144

Even though the fashion calendar has swiftly moved on and I’ve currently been enjoying London Collections Men, LCM SS16, I still want to share the amazingness of my Graduate Fashion Week experience. My second show was the Ouverture / Centro school of Fashion in Mexico. Due to the vibrancy of Mexican culture I expected a colourful, and energetic show which is exactly what I got. There was a range of luxurious fabrics from floaty chiffons to cosy tweeds plus sculptural shapes and prints to suit all tastes. The only thing missing was a beach and Tequila!

United Nude Brick Lane Pop Up Launch

IMG_20150409_190816592

I was excited to find out that one of my favourite shoe brands, United Nude decided to open a pop up shop in my end of London Town, in Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery. The launch party was a relaxed evening of drinks and live music from the angelic voice of Bronagh. United Nude shoes have everything I love about fashion, colour, bold structures, cool prints and general quirkiness. Whilst they have a range of perfect shoes for making a statement they also have a good selection of classic styles that can be worn to work or on casual occasions. I opted for a bright gold pair with a silver heal which I bought from their Flagship shop in Covent Garden a while ago which have done a great job of brightening up my shoe collection which has gradually become and array of colours. Here were some of my faves from the launch;IMG_20150409_190959820

I wore an old dress from one of the London markets- possibly Brick Lane?(too many clothes) & new shoes from my Marseille trip but made in Portugal.

Graduate Fashion Week 2014 and Exciting Blog News

IMG_20140601_190552547

I’ve spent the past few days in my element discovering emerging and new designers at Wolf & Badger boutique, who I’ve just started guest blogging for, and at Graduate Fashion Week which ended with a bang today. I’ve had a break from my blog as have been busy writing for one of London’s finest boutiques, according to Vogue. However I had to take the time to share the amazing talent spotted at GFW. I’ll also be sharing what I’ve been up to for the last few months soon as its been pretty exciting times- a blogathon is coming after my holiday to Atlanta this Friday! For now I’d like to share my highlights from the UCA Rochester graduate fashion week show and the exhibition. I’m always amazed at the extent of design talent abiding in the UK and its great to see stars from some  some of the unsung places outside of the capital. As a Londoner it easy to forget that creativity is alive and well in other parts of the UK and often in the most unexpected places. I’m truly grateful to Graduate Fashion Week for an eye opening  experience.
