As much as I loved the workwear and keffiyeh print inspiration at the Ashish show, it was this single denim patchwork dress that truly captured my heart. I love the multi-coloured fabric swaths and the slouchy oversized shape. If I had to pick one piece from Ashish’s autumn/winter collection to have this would definitely be it. With that said, the rest of the collection was equally alluring. Mixing something as tough as workwear with sequins is a brilliant and unexpected pairing. As always, I’m madly in love with Ashish’s creations. The mega blown out hairdos also has me wishing that I had a permanent member on staff to do my hair in the morning. Why am I so lacking in volume?
Shooting backstage at Michael van der Ham was serene. Everything was clicking away like clock work. The models had fake half fringes clipped into their hair and had dark moody eyeliner applied to their lids. I love seeing the clothes hanging on the rail and then seeing them come to life on the catwalk…
The collection was absolutely gorgeous. There were tops (see top right) with holes cut out of them. It almost looks as if some super powerful moths went to work on the fabric. My favourite pieces were the sheer tops (see top middle) with embroidery on them and the brocade pencil leg trousers. The show closed with three stunning dresses that would look killer on any red carpet. Michael van der Ham isn’t a designer that I was familiar with before the show but since seeing this collection he’s become one of my favourite London designers. *Collage photos from style.com*
Massive thanks to ebay for getting me backstage and for inviting me to the show.
Lying in my bed on the eve of 2013, I’m scrolling through a years worth of blog posts. Nostalgia is setting in. Pass the tissues. Highlights definitely include fashion week and twirling in the teacups at EuroDisney with Shini. A trip to Jamaica also ranks high on the best moments from the year. My favourite post I did this past year has got to be ‘A letter to my fellow bloggers’, wherein I write a letter addressing the misconceptions and lies that surround being a blogger. I loved reading everyone’s comments and thoughts in response to the post. Thanks so much for sticking with me through 2012. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the year ahead.
Happy New Year. Here’s to it being a great one. *clinks glass*
The first dress that cam sauntering down the catwalk at the Aminaka Wilmont show had my heart buckling. The peachy lavender shades were beautiful and the shape of the dress so flattering. I love the tiny thin belt that sits at the waist and the twisted detail at the hips. My favourite looks from the show were the ones that incorporated this melted flower print seen above – it’s so dreamy and soft. I love that Aminaka Wilmont takes such a feminine print but puts it on edgier pieces. The little white biker jacket with the grey printed short dress was one of my favourite looks from the collection – it’s definitely something I’d wear head-to-toe.
Massive thank you to Mercedes and Sarwah for inviting me along.
Louise Gray was so good. I’m totally feeling the layered up geometric prints. The colours are so bold and look really fresh. The mirrored earrings, psychedelic sunglasses and bouffant hairstyles are the icing on the cake.
Massive thank you to the team at eBay fashion for the ticket. xx
