Kicking off the show, the first collection was by Essere Bella Boutique featuring Kiki Riki. Owned by Jenni Orsini, this is a boutique with a difference based in the heart of Lancashire and is exactly what I would wear on a night out! The collection was edgy and unique with sheer, risque styles with models to match. With big hair and bold makeup, you could tell these models were confident about their bodies and in themselves and I think this portrayed beautifully the message behind Essere Bella. The glittery styles were very Gatsby-esque- a winner for me as this is one of the eras I wish to dress like!
Next up was Fabrikk, a luxury brand of accessories launched in August 2016. They were awarded PETA approval through their use of eco and vegan friendly cork ‘leathers’. I think that companies that source ethically are so important and I always like to support brands that are animal friendly and eco-friendly. I loved the array of baker boy hats and bags that they had on display. I recently bought a baker boy hat but had no idea how to style it so now I have some design inspo! The hat I fell in love with was a beautiful wine colour- my fave colour for Autumn season and to be honest it’s the only colour I seem to be wearing at the moment. When I find a colour I like I just wear it again and again until I fall in love with a new colour lol.
In between the second and third collection we had entertainment from singer Courtney Gill which was a really nice edition to the show. She had a lovely voice, was so confident and had mermaid hair! Love it!
The third collection of the night was by Evelina collection- a beautiful mix of lace, high quality fabrics with an autumnal twist. Everything in this collection was so dreamy and was elegant yet had a bit of edge. I adored the leaf hair crowns the models were wearing, on trend and just so cute! This stunning collection reminded me of a grecian vibe with floaty white dresses yet mixed it up with a co-ord with a glittery bra underneath. I love a co-ord set, literally live in them and this one was beautiful!
Uncommon routes is a new t-shirt brand and was the last collection of the night. Discovered in New York, UR is inspired by the three-letter codes assigned to every airport in the world. With quirky and very cheeky slogans, this collection was more a ‘everyday wardrobe’ as I think everyone loves a slogan tee every now and again! “Gay fun” and “fuk this” were two of my favourites and in this show the models were so confident which again just embodied the brand. Thanks for the great photo here mel 😉
Ending the show was singer Tabitha Jade which was just the perfect ending to a great night. Myself and Mel had a lovely time and I was so pleased with how it all went. LFW had it’s own filter for the night and had Liz Jones, the former editor of Marie Claire as a reporter for the night.
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading!! I have lots of exciting events I’m attending this winter… so stay tuned!
