Oscars Red Carpet!

The Oscars red carpet always shines every year, celebrities really make the effort every year the question on everybodies lips is ‘who are you wearing?’ I personally only tune into the Oscars for that exact same reason and this year certainly didn’t disappoint! I love it when celebrities chose well, I’ve gathered up some of my favourite looks just incase you haven’t had chance to take a look.

Naomi Campbell & John Paul Peitrus raise money for Typhoon Haiyan

If you havent heard about ‘Typhoon Haiyan’ seriously where have you been? Since this devastation hit the Philippines on Friday, its been all over the news and social media we haven’t seen anything like this since the tsunami with the death toll now being over 10, 000 people. Many people are donating money to help fund rescuing the survivors in need. Combining my love of fashion and charity the catwalk model Naomi Campbell and photographer John Paul Peitrus they have both agreed to sell signed pictures for £20 each with all the funds going to the red cross disaster fund. This isn’t the first time Campbell’s wanted to help those in need she set up ‘Fashion For Relief’ in 2005 which has helped people from many natural disasters including Hurricane Katrina and the Haiti Earthquake. A truly inspirational model.

More than 1 million pound has been raised by the British Red Cross up to now. If you would like to donate any money directly to help the people of the Philippines since Typhoon Haiyan then visit http://www.redcross.org.uk/typhoonappeal

World food day with Michael Kors!

world food day michael kors.jpg

Last week saw Michael Kors campain for world food day, raising awareness of the issues behind poverty and hunger. World food day occurs every year so Kors thought this was the year to go big and that is exactly what this campain did! The #WatchHungerStop tees were given out for free in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Rio de Janeiro Michael Kors stores on the 16th October. Many celebrities have been pictured getting involved sporting the tees. You’re probably thinking, what was the catch? There isn’t one it was Kors’ way of spreading the word. You could’ve even had your picture taken in the photo booth which was then sent to your phone so you could share the moment and spread the word. In my eyes this was a brilliant campain!

To make this campain even better Kors used todays technology and social networking to his advantage incorporating the hashtag into the tees made the whole world talk about them. The pictures taken were even streamed live to many digital billboards in Times square, can this get any better? The only thing i wish is that the campain was brought to the UK!

 

Paris Fashion Week!

Over the last couple of days the capital of romance took to the catwalk to showcase their collections for next spring its been a pretty spectacular month for fashion and Paris is the icing on the cake. Some of my highlights so far include Balenciaga,  Barbara Bui and Nina Ricci. I’m sure you’ll agree. Balenciaga has curved and cropped silhouettes with a sportswear flair, i’d even go as far as saying ‘j’adore cette collection de mode’ so my french might not be brilliant but you get the idea! Barbara Bui’s collection is a vision of white, blue and orange with quite a masculine take on next springs trends. Now for my final highlight of the week so far is Nina Ricci with the garments involving chiffon ruffles, sequins, pleats and florals and that’s just the prints and textures, what’s not to love? Paris is so far living up to its expectations. Enjoy!

With designers including, Prada, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, Dolce & Gabbanna, Blumarine, Max Mara, Alexander McQueen gracing their presence on the runway the list is sensational! Alberta Ferretti’s Spring Summer 2014 collection involves floral’s and stripes a beautiful combination of pinks and whites. Mother of Pearls next spring collection is a zesty masterpiece with the use of fruit prints combined with stripes i absolutely love this vibrant modern twist.  Franceseco Scognamiglio has used subtle prints and embellishments to their advantage i love the use of embellishment on the sleeves paired with the use of white and pastel tones seen throughout this collection. Who would have thought the use of portraits would look so eye catching on garments, well Prada showed us exactly how it can be done! Don’t you agree? Blumarine showed the catwalk beautiful textures involved in the collection with the use of white used well again! I think it’s safe to say white is a massive trend next spring! My final highlight so far at MFW is Dolce & Gabbana what an outstanding use of print in a variety of fabrics, so bold and fabulous it was so hard to just chose a few! Don’t worry it’s not over yet! Enjoy!

Ill start with some of my Saturday highlights, starting off with Holly Fulton the line includes a variety of prints along with a luxury colour palette of pastel blues and pinks. I love it, Don’t you?

House of Holland, also known as Henry Holland also showcased his next Spring 2014 this weekend, i always look forward to seeing what quirky pieces Holland will design next i love the hand painted detailing on some of the garments which ooze colour!

J.W. Anderson’s next spring collection bared a bit of flesh on the runway. His line is a combination of manipulated fabrics and prints with some of the shapes in the silhouettes reflecting geometric shapes i love the circular print cropped trousers.

Julien Macdonald’s collection had a baroque look creating grand designs, the colour palette included silver, gold, blues and black the collection was filled with embellishment so glamorous. Whats not to love?

Sunday saw Preen by Thornton Bregazzi hit the runway and what a contemporary fresh breath of air this collection was. I loved the use of the digital print and geometric shapes used within the pieces. I just love it, don’t you?

This collection oozed class Emilia Wickstead has designed pieces that look like something royalty would wear with a fresh colour palette a piano print was also used in some pieces towards the end of the show added fun.

I love the use of stripes within this collection with the use of sheer fabrics in the Mulberry collection. I also love the use of bold and subtle prints found within the garments i in-particular love the subtle printed blouse seen with the bold jacket and shorts.

I loved how feminine Temperley London’s collection was when i saw the line it made me want to get all dolled up, the combination of texture and embellished fabric used is stunning. Don’t you agree?

Topshop Unique, who doesn’t love topshop? I loved the skirts and colours used within this show of the collection i love that the designs in this line you could see people walking down the street wearing it, I think they did a brilliant job.

Mary Katrantzou what a collection! Every woman i know loves shoes so i know they will love this collection! She used laces, eyelets and blown up brogues used as an abstract print. Shoes are one of my favourite fetish when it comes to accessorizing, you can never have to many pairs! I apologize now but i just couldn’t pick my favourite pieces, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the colour, print, silhouette and everything about this collection. I’m sure you’ll agree? Enjoy!
