EXCLUSIVE: behind the scenes at Eudon Choi for River Island

EXCLUSIVE: behind the scenes at Eudon Choi for River Island

When I first heard Eudon Choi would be collaborating with River Island Design Forum, I couldn’t have been more excited: the young designer has been a firm Alex Loves and fashion insider favourite for a couple of seasons now, so I was obviously very pleased with the exposure this collection would bring Eudon. I jumped at the chance to see the collection up close when I was invited to get an exclusive behind the scenes of the Eudon Choi for River […]

Exclusive: Behind The Scenes at Georgia Hardinge for River Island

River Island launches its Design Forum initiative again during London Fashion Week tomorrow and they have just released a little teaser for the fashion film they created with Georgia Hardinge. Well, I can give you a little more than just the teaser… I was given exclusive behind the scenes access during filming and I’m so excited to finally get to share my snaps with you. Shot in a giant studio just outside of London by filmmaker Alex Turvey, the film […]

Farfetch and the Future of Shopping

Farfetch and the Future of Shopping

“Not only is shopping melting into everything, but everything is melting into shopping.”  (Sze Tung Leong) The year was 2002, I was 17 years old and I wrote a thesis on the subject “Shopping in the 21st Century”. I’d forgotten all about it, until at a Farfetch.com event recently, where we were shown a video (see below) called “The State of Independents”, in which some of the independent retailers who sell through the site discuss the changes in shopping and […]

Goodbye, 2012!

Goodbye, 2012!

Another year is coming to an end. 2012 will go down in history as a year which had both the best and worst of times, professionally and personally. Needless to say, I’m very, very happy to see the back of 2012 and embrace 2013 with open arms, as it signifies a new start for me. But before we start a fresh new year, I’d like to have a little look back on some of my personal blogging highlights from 2012! […]

Chanel Métiers D’Art: Paris > Edimbourg

Chanel Métiers D’Art: Paris > Edimbourg

Anyone wanting to host a fashion show in a remote Scottish roofless ruin of a castle on a freezing December day, should be deemed absolutely insane. But when it’sChanel hosting their annual Métiers d’Art show in the beautiful and historic Linlithgow Palace, you hop on a plane, layer up, put your boots on, have a sip of whiskey, sit back and enjoy every minute of what was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The Métiers d’Art collections […]

EXCLUSIVE: Chanel Little Black Jacket Opening Party

EXCLUSIVE: Chanel Little Black Jacket Opening Party

Last week I was invited by Chanel to cover the exclusive opening party for The Little Black Jacket exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery for Chanel News. I already wrote a post on the exhibition (click here for my review), so this post needs very little explanation: beautiful people, beautiful clothes and most of all, beautiful bags. For me to be given free reign at a Chanel event is pretty much a bit like all my Christmasses rolled into one. With […]

Chanel’s Little Black Jacket in London

Chanel’s Little Black Jacket in London

Chanel’s exhibition “The Little Black Jacket” finally landed in London yesterday, and I was there to go check it out! The show features 113 black and white images featuring some of the world’s best known – and some perhaps not so well known – faces from the world of fashion, art, design and music shot by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Carine Roitfeld. What started off as a project for a coffee table book (which I insist you get, I […]

Summer Style with The Outnet: Look 3

Summer Style with The Outnet: Look 3

The third and final look from my Summer Style session with The Outnet and Abi Marvel was the Festival Look. The 6 of us aren’t exactly wellies-and-poncho types – or as Ella from Coco’s Tea Party put it: “The only festival I’ve ever been to is the Vogue Festival” – so our wardrobe choices aren’t exactly Glastonbury, but you get the idea. My look was based around this incredible Acne leather skirt, so buttery soft I didn’t want to take […]

Firenze4Ever Style Lab Part 2: The Rock Chick

Firenze4Ever Style Lab Part 2: The Rock Chick

For the second look of my Firenze4Ever Style Lab, I chose something completely different to the first. Whilst browsing Luisa Via Roma for some ideas, a pair of Converse caught my eye – a bit worn and dirty looking with studs, just the way I like them – and as with the first look, the rest just followed naturally. Every rock chick needs a pair of black skinny jeans (J. Brand), badass sunglasses (Linda Farrow), a touch of leather (Givenchy […]

Firenze4Ever Style Lab Part 1: The Coat

Firenze4Ever Style Lab Part 1: The Coat

One of the main events at Firenze4Ever is the Style Lab, where I got to experience styling a real shoot, complete with model, hair and make up, an assistant and photographer, and of course, unlimited access to Luisa Via Roma‘s incredible collections… I decided to go for 2 completely different looks, one glamorous, elegant and timeless, the other one casual and a bit of rock ‘n roll. As different as they may be, they are both very much how I […]

Boutique Love: L’Éclaireur, Paris

Boutique Love: L’Éclaireur, Paris

As much as I love shopping online, nothing quite beats going to a proper boutique, where the shopping is as much about the experience as it is about leaving with some new goodies. They’re often the ones taking risks on young designers, creating an atmosphere no department store can recreate, and make shopping an intimate and luxurious experience for the customers again. So many of these boutiques are the unsung heroes of the fashion industry, so I’ve decided to shed […]

My very own Tusting bag!

My very own Tusting bag!

Sometimes I’m the luckiest girl in the world! Yesterday I finally got to pick up the beautiful holdall bag I got to help design with English Heritage brand Tusting – and it’s a beauty! Back in February when there was still snow on the ground (read: me falling flat on my face at one point), I was invited to visit the factory in Lavendon, where 5 generations of the Tusting family has been perfecting their leather craft over the past […]
