This year at Graduate Fashion Week you can see that there is more thought put into the styling – which is great but good styling can also make bad things look good, so sometime it’s important to look past the styling and just see the collections! There were lots of accessories on the catwalk on DayContinue reading


There is something so romantic, decadent and still pragmatic about a fan. The House Duvelleroy was founded in Paris in 1827 and in 2009 Eloïse Gilles and Raphaëlle de Panafieu resuscitated the couture fan house. The hand made fans are made from traditional fabrics like silk and feathers and state-of-the-art materials like carbon fiber andContinue reading

A silk scarf is always glamorous and with the quirky aesthetic of Meadham Kirchhoff it’s just so much more special.

Jane Bowler is as cute as a button and this season she’s outdone herself! Her collection has grown from focusing on accessories to some show stopper dresses and skirts. All the pieces are very tactile and are easier to wear than they look. I love her necklaces as they can completely transform an outfit. TheContinue reading

They have years of experienceContinue reading

I love a statement necklace but often I find them heavy at the back of the neck and end up taking them off by mid-morning. I’m loving this Erickson Beamon necklace – it’s not too heavy and easy to wear everyday.

Bill Skinner has been designing over the decades for many famous brands including Asprey, Garrards and Van Cleef and Arpels, Butler and Wilson and Vivienne Westwood. In 2011 he decided to launch his own affordable jewellery collection. Love this ten galloping horse gold plated necklace (perfect for Ascot) and his bees and honeycombs designs –Continue reading

One of the simple pleasures in life is having a new writing pen, especially for London Fashion Week. I was lucky enough to receive a Parker Ingenuity pen, which is brown with rose gold – beautiful!

Oliver Ruuger’s exhibition at the Freemason’s Hall was truly magical. In the upstairs of the Freemason’s Hall, an art deco building umbrellas and a brief case were suspended in the air. I saw Oliver Ruuger’s collection during graduate fashion week and I was so delighted to see it again, but this time up close. EverydayContinue reading

I really like patterned tights. These tights are from Phanntiq by Anna Skodbo – they are part of her first collection. I’m quite excited for Anna as her first collection has done quite well and received quite a bit of press coverage.

Keely Hunter is a London based hat designer presently making wooden hats! I love the idea of a wooden hat and had a chat with Keely about her inspirations. What inspired your collection? ‘NEW BUILD’ for me was all about contributing to design in a directional sense, hence I have produced a series of piecesContinue reading
