An interior post for the weekend- this time my own. Thought it was time I gave you a little break from Fashion Week- only a little one though.
New house- new keys.
Having t sort everything out and trying your hardest to make it look good. It almost feels like I picked up my entire old room and have plomped it down in a new one, with a slightly different layout.
As you make have noticed, I'm a sucker for a good tin.

THE.STREET.MUSE.

One of my favourite girls to be photographed by has to be Melanie Galea, of The StreetMuse,
who is always very sweet (with the cutest Italian accent), and who asks me to tell her the best vintage shops in London so she can go there when she is next in London.
These photos are from days one to three of London Fashion Week, and were published on Elle.com

“Bang!” was the title of today’s, excuse the cliché, show stopping Felder Felder show – and what a bang indeed. With signature hardware and leather bodices present, the sisters managed to create a sophisticated yet exciting Spring/Summer 2012 collection, described as “modern undone style”.

From bondage style bikinis, studs and all, to long flowing white and orange tie-dye dresses, fuelled by an uplifting soundtrack of Blueboy and the Smashing Pumpkins: every strut matched a beat. Favourites included metallic blue heels with a matching backpack. It seems that the Felder sisters know more and more each season exactly what their woman-every-woman- wants. The phrase “girls are doing it for themselves” has never been so apt.

ASHISH.SS12.

This season, Ashish created an early spring garden on his catwalk – literally, flowers were dropped.

Using his trademark head-to-toe sequins, Ashish called this season’s woman “the gardener’s daughter”, so there’s no wonder she had flowers in her boots then. It also sheds (pun intended) further light on the floral patterns, from marigolds to poppies, which appeared at least on one garment of every look, which were accompanied by straw hats, underlining the country feel.

But don’t let these niceties make you think this girl has got something to hide, as the hip high slit on the last dressed proved; the garden’s daughter must make the gardener very worried indeed.

A few photos from around the board of my outfits from Day 1-3.
Sorry I've been out of the loop a bit, after LFW I came straight back up to University- but I'm all yours now.
Next few posts will be all show focused, with reviews and everything.

Today, in a parallel world I ended up backstage at Michael Van Der Ham.
I've always been of the opinion that backstage is more interesting than front of house, as you get to see more of the hussle and bussle of the real fashion world, not just the perfected product that comes out at the end of it.
After taking in the whole building- the old Eurostar terminal at Waterloo- and after the inital excitement, I took some shots of the models. Luckily there was great light due to pretty much all round windows, and the models looked great in the colourful clothes, and were equally cheery themselves.
Although this may sound cheesy; this was one of the best experiences of my life. The very reason I first fell in love with the fashion world was because I would spend hours scouring through the backstage shots from all the big shows on the Vogue website. This is why I originally wanted to be a model booker, and subsequently interned at Storm and Premier Models. Thus, me entering in the backstage world, camera in hand, ready to take my own photos of the models, was truly a dream come true.

LEVRES.

Loving a good lippy at the moment, especially in love with this oh-so-pink Barry M one, which I like to wear when I'm (unusually) wearing pink, to bring out the colour more.
Off to London later, back at Notion Magazine tomorrow, and Fashion Week on Friday!

FASHIONS.NIGHT.OUT.2011.

Photobucket

What a night! One that went from eating candyfloss and sipping lychee martinis, to rollerblading on the top floor of a shoe shop, to having flick books made out of a video of yourself.
Let us begin in The Box Boutique, where we headed first, and the place of candyfloss and martinis (you know a night will be good when these are the first things you're served). The Box Boutique is a recently opened shoe shop galore- with neon lighting highlighting the perfectly laid out shoes.

After having satisfied our cravings for all things sweet, we wandered down a few streets to find the Rupert Sanderson store, just as we were about to go in the security guard told us there was a roller disco upstairs. My response: "Sorry?", my sister's "Let's go!". Having found out that it was indeed related to the Sanderson shoes (of course), up we went to find rollerblades, wigs, and star shaped glasses ready at our disposal.

It was great fun, but I was sad to find out I wasn't so good at rollerblading as I thought I might be...
Next, we walked round the corner to Diane Von Furstenberg, as my sister will begin interning there in New York in a couple of weeks. We were by this point extremely hungry so were only too glad to be served delicious canapes whilst we waited in line to have our flick book made.

After so much excitement, we decided to stroll in and out of a few other shops.

One thing I did notice this year compared to last was how busy it was! Most of the shops had queues coming out onto the street from them, which is a shame as one of the best parts of last year was how open an accommodating all the shops were. But then again, if it's busy it is of course best not to have a rammed shop.
All in all, a very enjoyable night as ever!

Next thing: London Fashion Week begins this Friday.
