Me and Spike Lee @ the Mayfair Hotel Fashion Week Party

After the Untold LFW show I went to the Mayfair Hotel Fashion Week party to meet the stunning presenter Leah Charles and to my surprise I bumped into Spike Lee at the party.

So I had to take a quick snap before he disappeared off course!! So whilst taking the pic Estelle and Nicola from Girls Aloud walks by looking truly amazing!! and ready to party!! I must say Nicola has been making a real fashion statement throughout Fashion week, with her fab selection of outfits.

Nicola’s dress was gorgeous and she looked very striking.

I kept my style pretty simple yet elegant so opted for one of International designer Nico D’s beautiful pieces.

I also bumped into my friend Daryl, Tara Moon and Violinist Analiza Ching, Miliner and author Tracey with her husband(Below pic).

After a few dances I was shattered so called my cab and as I was waiting I bumped into Su-Elise (Mystic Band member). She was so bubbly and somehow we ended up having a brief conversation about relationships!!! But more on a positive note she has just launched her own performing Arts school in Kent which I found just so inspiring!!

My cab then arrived and I said au revoir to all and headed home to my bed :)

'A La Mode' Finale!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Day 2

Today was the last day of ‘A La Mode’ which showcased another set of 5 fantastic emerging and Independent designers who included Mazelino, Marthe Aime, Moixa, Monica Couture and Guate Goat.

The room was packed with guests excited to see what these designers had to present and one thing I can confirm was that they were far from disappointed with the outcome.

Opening the show was Brighton based label Mazelino who launched their first ready to wear collection, Coco by Mazelino, this season. Think breakfast at Tiffany’s and Coco Chanel!!

Following them was Parisian label Marthe Aime with their fabulous range of accessories ensured to jazz up any outfit. The concept behind this label is just fantastic without a doubt!

Next up was Moixa, a luxurious style brand based on the timeless values of quality fabrics, attention to detail and stylish cuts. Inspired by travel, music, art and architecture.

Monica Couture followed showcasing her eastern traditional inspired pieces with cuts and designs catering to a trendy market.

Closing the show was Guate Goat with their high quality bags and shoes.

Exhibitors for the evening included Nooshooz, Rivets and n Stitch, 4 Seasons Shop and Carolina Faria Footwear.

The gorgeous Charlotte from Glam Media ( also came down to the show to show her support. Read about her write up via the below link:

So that’s it from ‘A La Mode’ until next season :( I know!!!

Clicqisse Pre Fashion Week Catwalk...

Today I went to the Clicqisse designer’s pre LFW fashion show at the famous HeyJo venue in Jermyn Street.

The show was presented by the fabulous Lara Accison of Fashion TV and showcased the Spring/Summer 2010 collections of 3 amazing emerging Clicqisse designers. For those of you who have never come across CLICQISSE, CLICQISSE pronounced as (c l i c k s) is a creative management company that sets the platform for passionate new generation fashion designers, and aspiring models under one umbrella to unveil their creative talent in the industry. With an aim to fulfilling a niche, CLICQISSE is proud to have worked and collaborated with various creative networks both in the UK and international with great success.

The CLICQISSE Designers who showcased their collections were ZSOFIA WEBER, FOTINI VERGINI & guest designer MASSUNIQ. Their collections consisted of a unique blend of contemporary high prêt a porter designs, promising quality, comfort, and individuality for the new woman with a sense of class and style. Each piece is well thought of to give the wearer a desirable elegant look without compromising femininity, and the creative edge that gives individuality to the garments. I loved Massuniq’s avant grade accessory pieces!!

They were pretty extraordinary I must say!! The model’s hair looked AMAZING!! thanks to Avant Garde stylist Perry Patrasewski, the head stylist for the night, and his team.

Singer and songwriter Elsa Chapman also performed a fantastic set for the crowd. She was absolutely amazing!!! Sponsors supporting the event included O.P.I, Studio TMLS and Sanctuary Spa. The goody bags were the best I have received in a long while and filled with exciting beauty treats. I then headed home after the show and guess what…?? It was raining as always –lol x

The Vogue Fashion night out and Pre London Fashion Week Celebrations

Hi guys,

I can’t believe fashion week is nearly here again…I feel like the previous season was the other day!!! But anyway I’m not complaining, I am in fact extremely excited about all the glitz and glamour etc etc that will be happening next week in London. I may be considered as being biased here but I can honestly say LFW is the best fashion week and most daring I have yet been to!!. From the clothes to the people and the energy surrounding it makes it so unique in its own right and so wonderful to be part of.

As part of my pre-fashion week celebrations I went to the Vogue Fashion Night out event in London’s West End and I must say everyone was dressed to impress and at their ‘fashion best!!’. You were easily able to distinguish the brave with their daring hair cuts (think Rhianna, Solange and Cassie) and the trend setters from the trend followers!!

As part of a bold global initiative, the international editions of VOGUE partnered with designers, department stores, high-street chains and boutiques to create Fashion’s Night Out, an evening extravaganza held around the world from 6pm until midnight. For this event to be made possible the VOGUE team worked with retailers to create a night of original in-store activities, including personal appearances, makeovers and workshops, during extended shopping hours.

For those of you looking to get a taste of fashion week can hop down to the ‘A La Mode’ LFW Catwalk at the Charing Cross Hotel next week. Visit the below link for more info:

Stay tuned for my exclusive London Fashion Week coverage!!

Nite, Nite, xx
