If the shoe fits… buy it in every color

Strolling through Carnaby Street we stumbled upon these lovely pieces of eye candy at the London College of Fashion pop up exhibition showcasing the best emerging fashion design talent.

These beautiful must-have creations are by GeorgieBee, and although, sadly, the exhibition is now closed, we recommend keep an eye out for this shoe designer.

Another great new shoe designer to also emerge from LCF is Johnathon Leslie (see below). Do we see an new Nicholas Kirkwood in the making?

Natalie Massenet x BoF

FashAddict is over-estatic to announce that we will be attending Business of Fashion’s Natalie Massenet talk this week, held at Net-a-Porter’s Westfield offices.  Hosted by Imran Ahmed, founder and editor of BoF, the talk will allow the audience to ask Massenet questions about her life, career and her meteoric rise to success and wealth.

Earlier this year it was revealed that Massenet sold her stake in the online retail site for an estimated £350 million to the wiss luxury group, Richemont SA. Besides from the talk, we can’t wait for the amazing cityscape views from Net-a-Porter’s head offices.

See you soon Natalie!!

Hussein Chalayan Exhibition

A definite date for the diary this September is a solo exhibition from British designer Hussein Chalayan at the Lisson Gallery (Sept 08-Oct 02, 2010). A truly inspiring designer in a sea of typical catwalk looks; Chalayan pushes boundaries and his avant garde pieces could never be seen as clothes for the sake of clothes, they are always vehicles for his challenging and interesting concepts. An exhibition at an art gallery is perfect for Chalayan whose catwalk shows are often more reminiscent of art installations.

They combine incredible artistic concepts with amazing technological ideas and result in one-of-a-kind pieces that would be much more at home in an exhibition space than ever on the high street. Highlights from the designer’s prolific career include the wooden skirt which transforms into a coffee table from his A/W 2000 collection.

Also his spring 2007 bubble dress comprised of lots of plastic bubbles roughly resembling a mini-dress recently copied by Lady GaGa on her Fame Ball tour.

We can’t wait to see what the designer has up his sleeve for this gallery show.
