Finally I’ve managed to get at least two outfits done for you guys, two fabulous representatives of the LFW day one Streetstyle fest that took place friday 20th Feb. One outfit from the legendary and I must say very charming Larry Tee, of New York music and club scene fame. Larry also runs a fashion brand called Tzuji, and the latest collection called, deftly, Electro Clash (the musical genre he named a few years back), is superbly covetable and i think this jumper, which is everything, has just gone to the top of my (and every stylist around’s) wish list.
Then we have the fabulous fashion students Lydia and Maddie who’s looks simply rocks the socks. I mean, the hair. The coat. The Red or Read x Ashley williams shoes. Bravo girls. Bra-Vo.
YES! Its that glorious time of year again – LFW and all the glorious beauty it has to bring.
Now for the first time since setting up this blog, hunting for beautiful people and outfits to illustrate, I find myself star-struck. Who do I bump into other than the simply and utterly DIVINE Immodesty Blaize at the LFW PPQ party!!!!!
In the dim lighting I didn’t even recognise her, other than the fact that she was the most beautiful and glamorous woman there, so when I innocently asked for her Instagram tag after having taken a reference photo, the words ‘@immodestyblaize’ seemed to linger for an eternity in my stunned mind, and all I could gracefully reply was ‘oh! its you!’. Smooth. My sincere apologies Miss Blaize, it’s just that you represent all that I think worth while in this world, that’s all. What a humble honour to be able to illustrate your gorgeous self, and thanks for the oodles of glamour you bring us xx
The Velsvoir presentation at LCM 15 was, as mentionned previously, a sincere pleasure, as always. The boys presented a collection that took on more texture and patterns, and it felt like a smooth and natural progression. Bravo indeed.
Now, the thing that always strikes me about their events is that the crowd is fantastically friendly and social, and you want to stay past your planned exit time. Too many fashion week parties are full of – lets be honest – slightly pretentious crowds, poor drinks, lighting that makes you struggle to recognise even your best friend next to you, and music volumes that renders any form of conversation futile. Maybe Im getting old, -perhaps i always was – but i like to mingle at these things, and in order to do so i need to be able to see and hear…And Im happy to report that every single Velsvoir event is a pure joy to attend. I always leave with a host of new delightful aquaintances and an even greater admiration for the designer trio. I can’t wait for the next one.
Below is a small collection of some of the quality human beings i had the pleasure to meet, cudos to you all xx
The gorgeous Jeffery Scott, MUA extraordinaire, and Aiyla & Alex – the most beautifully tattooed models you’ll ever meet
The superstylish and supertalented boys from Rough Copy
And last but nnot least, Sarah Mulindwah, the stylist, and woman – full stop, with London’s best hair, and flawless sense of style.
