On the same day that I got my gift from Polyvore, a little later on, I got my DKNY bag I ordered from Monnier Freres! This parcel was massive, I really like how it was packaged with the ribbon. I was asked by a member of Monnier Freres if I wanted to participate in their Christmas collaboration, where I had to make 20 Polyvore sets for them and I was given a voucher to spend on their website. I went for the bag because I don't have any professional looking bags (I have too many canvas totes!) here are my pics on unboxing my parcel:

A Nice Surprise from Polyvore

Saturday, 28 December 2013

This morning I was actually expecting my parcel from Monnier Freres (it came later on), but I received a really nice surprise gift from Polyvore! This morning I was feeling very groggily (not a early bird unfortunately!) I thought 'oh is my bag I brought in in this small parcel?' and then I saw Polyvore's address. It was just a really pleasant surprise :) I wasn't expecting it because I did receive something last year. You can see my blog post here. Anyway, I received a pack of 4 customised coasters, a coaster holder and some nail wraps. Thank you again Polyvore :)

LFW: Dissecting Flowers at Christopher Kane Spring 2014

Wednesday, 20 November 2013

Gah. I'm so bad at blogging. I was going to write this Christopher Kane post following the Ashish Spring 2014 collection but got sidetracked and I never got to it...next time when its fashion week again (in Feb!) I should just do a round-up of my favourites rather than do a collection by collection post. I never have the time and it's hard to keep up with fashion week! Anyway, I really really loved this collection. I'm a huge fan of laser cutting! Depending on what your laser cutting, I think it's such a versatile machine cutting on plastics or fabric. I just loved using it at Uni, too bad I never got to use more of it.

The photos below (courtesy of style.com) are some of my favourites from the collection. I really loved the idea of using dissecting flowers from a Science textbook and photosynthesis. Flowers are always used in spring summer collection but the way Christopher Kane has interpreted it in his own way represents a unique concept. I think the detailing on the sweatshirt are gorgeous and there are really great use of fabrics in the dresses. So much attention to detail!

LFW: Coca Cola Sparkles at Ashish Spring 2014

Tuesday, 17 September 2013

The Ashish Spring 2014 collection opened up at Somerset House on 14th September 2013. Aside from Ashish's fascination of sparkles and sequins in his designs, this collection features the renowned Coca Cola logo embodied in vibrant sequins and he said that he was inspired by the celebration of a the multicultural city. I really liked the mixture of different fabrications such as distressed denim, sheer, plaid and animal prints; it looked very eclectic, playful and not taken too seriously. I loved the elements of the heavy metal jewellery and accessories, the green dyed hair and the grocery shopping bags also embodied in sparkly sequins! There was also a 'S&M' green shopping bag - sound familiar? (Hint: M&S!)

The Ballgowns Exhibition at the V&A

Wednesday, 31 July 2013

This is quite old from now! But the V&A had the Ballgowns exhibition that I went to last year. This exhibition highlighted British Glamour since 1950 for 60 years of stylish evening wear. There were beautiful embellished details, styles and exquisite silhouettes. There were gowns on display by Alexander McQueen, Bellville Sassoon, Roland Mouret and Zandra Rhodes. As well as young labels such as Holly Fulton, Erdem, Felicity Brown, Jonathan Saunders, Gareth Pugh and Christopher Kane. There was an absolutely stunning dress by Alexander McQueen, in which model Daphne Guinness wore to the Met Ball.

Stylish gloves

This photo went a bit blurry; was trying to take a pic as quickly as possible before getting caught again. I love the Walkers crisps packet bag! 

I really want to see that David Bowie exhibition next. Its extremely popular! Best selling exhibition at the V&A so far.
