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?

Trend Fix: Dressing-up Box

  

For all those of you, who are already tiring of the flimsy nature of summer dressing and yearning for something with a bit more substance, look no further than the latest collection from innovative duo, Meadham Kirchoff for A/W10. An eye-watering amalgamation of sequins, glitter, costume jewellery, crowns and veils this dressing-up box approach to outfit building is truly creative and inspiring and set to be an under-the-radar-trend for next season. Focusing on layering, bright colour, and heavy embellishment and accessorising to the max, the collection is the perfect antidote to this season’s simplicity and pared down silhouettes. The collection is based on a “documentary tracing Romany culture and its links from India through to Spain”. Become a magpie and use your own travels this summer as your starting point, your body as your canvas, and your imagination as your stylist and create your own truly original dressing-up box style come autumn.

Style Solutions: We’re all going on a summer holiday

If you are one of the lucky ones jetting off to a palm tree lined beach this summer I know what a nightmare it can be to put together looks that suit a whole different climate – so I thought I’d give you a hand with your packing! This summer I think its all about bright tones and tropical motifs. Our very own “To Love Kuvaa” range has everything you could possibly need – and my key items I think you shouldn’t be without for your holiday this year is the “Sara” hat, the “Flower” playsuit and a straw hat which can be dressed up with chunky jewelery in the evenings and paired with anything from denim shorts to a high waisted skirt. I particularly love this look with a soft grey cardigan (this style is “Vicky”) – a look that works just as well for festivals and for summers in the city.

Add a cute bikini, some chunky wooden wedges and a big pair of sunnies then you are good to go! Oh, and don’t forget your suncream! Happy Holidays!
