Throwback to LFWM January 2017

As it is only 10 days until London Fashion Week Mens, I thought I would recap what happened last season!

I enjoy the way that menswear is changing and is getting brighter and more innovative. I am all for this change. I hope to see more of that in the next 10 days and throughout the whole of this Menswear season from June – July.

Paris Fashion Week Round-up

Hello all,

It’s been a little while since we have spoken so I thought it would be great to do another round-up.

Paris Fashion Week was an amazing way to end this vibrant, politically charged, creative, thought-provoking season.

On my Instagram, I have been posting about my Paris Fashion Week Favourites but for this Round-Up, Let’s just start from the beginning!

Lanvin provided a visual feast that was palatable for all. Nothing too shocking or too out-there but so beautiful and classy. Classy and debonaire clothing is what Lanvin seems to do best.

Paco Rabanne – Usually my favourite for fragrance – dominating Fashion week!

2013 was the year that Chainmail died… well when creative director Julien Dossena did it, he brought it back. With asymmetrical cuts, off the shoulders, mid-lengths and draped material, Dossena breathed new life into this once old fad. The whole collection had a cohesive fun yet sophisticated look running throughout.

Up next: BALMAIN

Olivier Rousteing did it again. I can’t wait to see this collection at Red Carpets as well.

With dark patterns and prints, this collection has quickly become one that cannot be forgotten. The striking shapes and animal prints resemble that of a warrior woman. This whole collection draws from the beautiful strength of women and I have to say it is one of my favourite Balmain Collections to date.

Mugler maintained his trademark Angel-Bottle Star shape throughout his various designs.

The concept of deconstrcuted constellations ran throughout the whole collection whether that was in print, structure or design.

Now to one of my favourite designers of all time (As I always reiterate) Elie Saab!

This collection deserves the name Poetry In Motion. The beautifully exquisite dark romantisist theme brings the whole collection together making it wearable for the highstreet but still the brilliant and beautiful couture vibe that we all know and Love from Elie Saab.

H&M Studio put on a brilliant show feature The Weeknd performing and releasing his new line with H&M.

A show all about love, with interesting shapes and colours on the runway. A very fun runway show to watch and I’ sure it would have been fun to take part in too!

And lastly, we will end with something truly interstellar, Chanel!

So many amazing details at this show and what better way to end a show than having a rocket launch?

And that’s my Paris Fashion Week Round-up, I hope you enjoyed reading it and for more head to my social to find out my absolute favourites.

Oxford Fashion Studio: Paris Collection Round-up

Oxford Fashion Studio’s runway shows have come to an end but the season was absolutely sensational with fabulous designers like Annie Chou, Prodigal Daughter and Nissreen Ghazy.

Let’s take a look back to some of the amazing designs that were presented in New York, London and most recently and more so in this blog post, Paris!

One of the first exclusive from the Paris Collections was an interesting and striking collection by Selma Cilek called Casual Diva.

This was exclusively shown earlier than any other show at 2:45pm and definitely turned heads with the attention to detail.

Kicking off the first show was Madame Mode!

The fabulous flared trend is definitely coming back this season so look out for it a lot more.

The emphasised collar is also very striking and appealing.

Such a fabulous dress from Nissreen Ghazy. Eygptian designer Ghazy creates amazing bridal pieces that any bride would feel like a princess in.


Oxford Fashion Studio truly took Paris by storm and completely stole the show.

Stylish Christmas Jumpers and More

I was trawling through different fashion websites when I came across this article in Harper’s Bazaar UK – http://www.harpersbazaar.co.uk/christmas/news/g37307/christmas-jumpers-for-women-2016/ and I was inspired by a few of them so much that I had to write something.

Let’s start with Ladies’ Christmas Fashion:

Look 1

Found on Harper’s Bazaar UK Cable-knit sequinned jumper, £1,280, Emilio Pucci at Net-A-Porter

I love the embellishment on this Jumper. This could be worn with pretty much anything! All of the Jumpers could be worn with almost anything. I would style this Caable-knit jumper with Pink Tailored Cigarette trousers, A Leopard Print Coat and Navy Boot from Topshop.

How to wear: Camouflage Trend

Contrary to the name, the camouflage trend is more about standing out than blending in. I enjoy playing around with militant tones and street style to create something aesthetically pleasing.

20161105_144527.jpg

The base of this look is a khaki PU spliced T-shirt of side zips from Boohoo Man. It was quite a versatile piece that is better to wear in the winter as the PU panel can keep you quite warm.

20161105_144603.jpg

The khaki Utility sleeveless shirt from Forever 21 Men creates the perfect layer. I simply did the top button up and added my diamanté collar clips from Topman. This small detail adds a different dimension to this outfit.


The key to getting a creative camouflage look is making sure the colours are similar but not the same. This adds some multi-tonality. The camouflage print cargo joggers from Forever 21 Men contrast well with my grey high tops from M&M direct.

Accessorising an outfit is extremely important!

My black ring and chain bracelet pick up on the darker tones of the outfit. The silver rim of my sunglasses picks up the grey of the shoes. And the orange of the snap back adds a touch of neon.

This is a simple outfit to recreate and I hope when you recreate it, you’ll add your own unique features to it.
