GFW Best in showΒ 

Another year over, another amazing set of shows. 
After seeing some collections for myself and the remainder are courtesy of vogue online, I have narrowed down the hundreds of collections to my final four favourites. These all have the wow factor in their own little way, whether it be down to the detail, impact, fabrics or prints, I have summed up GFW in one bite size chunk. 

1/2. Best prints; I love the girly pastels matched with oversized and complimenting shapes. The prints are incredible, they are vibrant, bold and work really well with the silhouettes. Slightly sporty but keeping the elegance, this award for me, gets best prints of the show!

3/4. Best casual chic; the latex really completes this collection. The subtleness of the prints layered over detailed garments allows this collection to be classically beautiful. The paint brush strokes adds a more casual feel but only adds to the interest and depth of design. Silver sparks also adds a quirky edge and makes the collection appear almost futuristic.

5/6. Best sports luxe; again prints compliment the layered and contrasting fabrics used. I love the simplicity of the shapes, the colours and fabrics work beautifully together, the knitwear is stunning . The glasses only add to the impact! Sometimes accessories are essential to finish off the look.

7/8. Best wow factor; who are you wearing? A classic phrase by all! This extreme collection brings art and an abstract nature to the forefront of the catwalk. By literally putting faces on garments it is not only clever but also makes an impact and has a lasting impression. In my opinion, this was the most ingenious collection of the whole event!

All white everything

White denim is a must have this summer. From the perfect knee length skirt with button detailing to exaggerated ripped boyfriend jeans, denim is an essential part of every girl’s wardrobe. 

Initially I wasn’t a fan of the almost illuminous, pristine white denim, but worn in the correct way it completes any summer outfit. I particularly love oversized denim jackets. This new take on the everlasting Levi’s denim version is a welcomed arrival. Whether you are wishing for a casual day look with platform sandals or prefer an evening option with colourful pointed courts, white denim is the new staple piece for this summer. 

Hot on the high street: Urban outfitters have some great girlfriend jeans in store right now. New Look have a mini denim skirt which is a perfect throw on piece. Zara have frayed denim in all shades of beautiful garments.

  • Don’t buy too cheap; true denim is worth paying for (it will last a lifetime).
  • Look out for details; denim details add intricate finishing touches to what appears to be a standard garment.
  • DIY; don’t be afraid to add rips/embellishment to your garments to make a statement.
  • Double Denim; try it and don’t regret it.

Be Exposed Issue 7

   

I had the pleasure of being involved with the 7th issue of Be Exposed Magazine. With the theme revolving around water my collection fitted perfectly. I had not seen the images before the release of the magazine so I was waiting in suspense for a very long time. 

  

Each time my garment is featured whether be a magazine or blog it really overwhelms me. This shoot shows effortless beauty and is powerful and subtle at the same time. Being featured with other designers is also a real pleasure.

   

 

The ‘meet the designers’ section included a double page spread about myself and an example of my work. Again, extremely amazing to see my name and work in print.  

Completed by a beautiful illustration of my work along with the other designers in the magazine. 

Big thank you to everyone involved with the magazine issue, I can’t thank you enough.
