London Fashion Week Exhibitions
On the spring, with notepad, pen and iPhone ready, I spent most of my Sunday checking out the fabulous collections for Spring/Summer 2012.
In my vintage brown suede high heeled boots and with my Fashion Week Exhibition pass wrapped around my neck, I walked up and into the bottom level of Somerset House around noon on Sunday.
Even though I always dream of seeing some amazing celeb at an event, I never do. Probably ’cause I don’t pay enough attention and usually wander around, too tightly wound in my own thoughts, that even recognizing my own sister somewhere would be dificult. Still, I was hoping to see some fashion creators and victims and maybe the occasional famous face. While I did pass extravagantly dressed girls with matching face paint and outfit, I did not see anyone worth mentioning by name. Totally okay though, since the fashion was more than exceptional and so super exciting!
Being a Doll my love for shoes is unconditional, and could possibly even be called obsessive at times. I passed the most unique cassette heels ever by Cleo B’s “I Like That” collection.
She claims to have gotten her inspiration from a magazine tear of a pink cassette tape set against a bright yellow background. “It reminded me of a decade that cradled the birth of pop culture; it reminded me of the 80s”. – Cleo B
The Cleo B brand has found a very interesting balance of creativity and elegance. The shoes are extremely unique and very funky yet down to earth and conservatively lady-like at the same time. I love these heels, and can see myself wearing any of the colors combined with a sophisticated business look to add a little fun and youth to the outfit, or with leather leggings or skinny jeans for a more casually chic look.
Straight on to the next pair of gorgeous shoes, these casual summer heels are solving my personal Da Vinci code. I have been searching the stores all summer to find these exact shoes, and am thrilled to know where to find them for next season! Seriously cool with skinny jeans and romantic and feminine with a summer sun dress!
The exhibition was so much fun to admire and i found some exciting fashion pieces of art to gaze at in awe! It seemed like everywhere I turned, I either found my self in front of a awe-striking design, or staring at a fashionable wonder-woman with huge hair decoration and chunky heels!
Tatty Divine says ‘Hola’ to a real juicy jewellery collection! Their Spring/Summer 2012 collection is inspired by Frida Kahlo’s beautiful face and Mexican embroidery. My personal favorites were the Melon Large cantaloupe necklace, that comes with matching earrings, and even a tiny melon hat! (so cute) And the Sugar Skull Link Necklace. Skulls and skeletons nod to the Day of the Dead, but look closely and you’ll find them decorated with Tatty Devine symbols!
This is a really fun summer jewellery collection, I know I’ll be wearing next season!
Amongst bacon sandwiches and a tiny glass of champagne, I found my self scribbling down everything I could lay my eyes on! Whether the gorgeously bohemian Winter Kate collection by Nicole Richie, or amazing rubber dresses and coats for rainy spring days in London, I could not stop bouncing up and down in excitement!
Being the biggest fan and lover of Dachshund sausage dogs E-V-E-R, I could not resist taking a picture of this adorable “I love hot Dog” poster, out on the terrace of the Somerset House! The design comes as a super cute sweater and a Tee, and makes me so very happy!
At the end of a long day of London Fashion Week exhibitions, I found my self so inspired by London’s young talent! What an honor it is to be able to live and love and laugh in such an amazing city?
If I had the talent, I would sit down right now and create my own fabulous Fashion line, or paint a portrait or maybe I’ll just bake some cupcakes and decorate them with sugary butterflies… Either way, express yourself through art! Live, love, learn!
