LFW Part 2. SS 2012

Harpers Bazaar USA by Mr Newton

Elle USA

Vogue Italia

This is another of my outfits from LFW. 
Love the streetstyle shot by Style Crusader! It captures all the colours so wonderfully with the mixed print on the birkin and trousers. 
It was really fun being photographed by Mr Newton for the first time too, he has such a eye for what he wants it makes the whole process really interesting. 

I am off to Paris for the last fashion week of this season today. 
I cant wait to fit a bit of cafe book reading, shopping and eating of french food into the trip!

Shoes Christian Louboutin, Skirt Isolda London (sample), Top H&M, Cardigan Pure Collection, Scarf from Hong Kong, Bag Chanel and Glasses Cynthia Rowley.

This was my outfit from the first day of London Fashion Week. 
I love the skirt, it's so happy! The designer is the best girl, and she hand draws all the prints before they are screened onto silk.  
Check out more of her work HERE!  
They also have a fabulous jewellery line of to-die-for remade victorian pieces (I did a post on a couple of their pieces HERE!).

I really enjoyed my trip to NYC for Fashion Week this season. The weather was fabulous, I had my trusty partner in crime Frances Davison with me, and the shows were great. 
My favourite shows were definitely...
  • Cynthia Rowely (would have worn every single piece that went down the catwalk, so rare for me)
  • Tibi (happy happy happy)
  • Tory Burch (best location and general show)
  • Diesel Gold (mega models and metallics make me happy)
  • Nanette Lepore (colourful fun and live music)
I will do illustrations and catwalk notes as soon as I can, so you can see what I mean. 

The atmosphere at NYFW is so different to LFW.  I think the great weather helps, but also the people are very different, I love the dressed up vibe in NYC (London is so much more casual cool), I think because I love fancy pants outfits, any excuse to make the most of my wardrobe. It made for a wonderful change, although I cant say I wasn't excited to see my wonderful bed in London. 

NYFW this season fell over the 10th anniversary of 9/11.  The city was so respectful.  The safety measures did everyone involved credit, and I felt there was a general feeling of survival, community and healing.  Frances even wore an USA flag dress for the day! 

I also attended the Mulberry 40th Anniversary Party while in NYC, which was so much fun, Kasabian played a full set, everything was decorated with Mulberry Bag Balloons and I got a balloon peony bracelet made for me to take home... now what more could a girl ask for?!

People always ask what places are on your hit list when you visit different cities, so incase you were interested here are my must sees for NYC...
I want to thank all the lovely people that made my trip extra special!
Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!
I hope I will be back soon, to make the most of NYC not just run in and out of shows. 
I didn't want to bore you all with a load of street style here by check the Press page for more details if you are interested in my other outfits.

Fire Fields

Dresses Isolda London (samples), Shoes Joseph Azagury, Hat vintage, Belt Vintage and Sunglasses Hugo Boss.

These are some amazing dresses from Isolda London, I really wanted to shoot them in a fitting setting so, I thought a wild field was the place for an english tiger and a british parrot.  I was so glad when the weather turned out to be so wonderful as well. These warm weather dresses are so beautifully comfortable to wear, I am really hoping they will make some fabulous Maxis for Winter. I definitely would need them in my life!  You might spot me in some more Isolda for Fashion Month, packing and extensive preparations are underway now, ready for NYFW! See you there!
