Living a girl's dream

November 16, 2012







(Emilio de la Morena dress and belt, Rag & Bone long sleeve tee, Christian Louboutin heels, Tom Ford sunglasses)

Last week when I visited London Fashion Week designer Emilio de la Morena's design studio to get a real-life glimpse of his SS'13 collection (see post here), I also got a hold of this FW'12 dress.  A beautiful exotic digital print I can only describe as destructured flowers meets leopard.  It is so refreshing for Fall/Winter.  Emilio is known for making women feel feminine and pretty and this dress made me feel just that with the little peplum detail and flouncy skirt.  So easy to wear, I loved shooting it in a beautiful garden in London and living every little or big girl's dream.  

Designer Spotlight: Anthony Vaccarello

November 14, 2012







I adore fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello and seeing these photos shot by David Roemer in Harper's Baazar Spain confirmed what I already thought: What a bad a** designer!  "I test the limits and I am obsessed with a woman's figure.  Less is not enough and more is too much," the Italian-Belgian designer told Vogue Paris.  His designs are unarguably provocative and evoke images of the modern femme fatal.  He previously worked at Fendi where he excelled as designer for the fashion house's fur line and in 2009 launched his first ready-to-wear collection.  I have my eye on you Mr. Vaccarello and I can't wait to see what is in store (pun intended) next.

Inside Emilio de la Morena's Design Studio

November 12, 2012




Last week I visited one of my favorite London Fashion Week catwalk designers Emilio de la Morena's design studio.  Filled with his signature colorful clothing and accessories (and my excitement!), I got a tangible sneak preview into the SS'13 collection.  "I wanted to make SS'13 easy-to-wear," Emilio told me.  Easy-to-wear and impeccably tailored, his collection reminded me of a modern take on Spanish flamenco dancers (see dresses above).  "I felt I wanted to bring back memories from the past," the designer originally from Spain said.  Twirling around in his designs and feeling unapologetically pretty, I am now eagerly awaiting the collection to hit stores and go dance the night away!  Thank you Emilio for showing me your as beautiful as always new collection.

Designer Spotlight & Exclusive Interview: Meera Sharma

November 2, 2012


London-based designer Meera Sharma's debut collection, titled Femme Fatale, is inspired by the female superhero: sexy, strong and powerful.  To Meera she is the "ultimate" woman and much like the women she designs for.  I recently came across Meera and instantly loved her strong point-of-view and creative use of materials.  

I had the chance to interview the emerging designer:

How did you decide to become a fashion designer?
I have always been fascinated by fashion from a young age, be it observing what people are wearing or designing clothes for my Barbie dolls so it was a natural progression. It's great to be able to show my viewpoint on fashion to other people via my designs. 

What business advice would you give other designers or entrepreneurs wanting to start their own lines?
Make sure you understand business, read up on it or ask someone for advice as you need to understand about costings. At the end of the day you want to be able to know how to keep costs down to increase profit margins. Starting your own line is not an easy thing and you do need to have funding of some sort so make sure you are ready for setbacks as it is a difficult industry to get into!

What are your three "must-have" pieces this Winter?
Oo three must have pieces I want, that is a difficult one as I go through phases. I really want some trendy, colourful knitwear. I also saw these leggings with faux diamonds on them (they look much nicer than they sound!) that I want. Also maybe a leather skirt? 

As a budding talent, Meera is up for the MUUSEX VOGUE TALENTS YOUNG VISION AWARD 2012.  Vote for Meera here For more on Meera Sharma see her official site here.  

Good luck Meera and can't wait to see more from you! 

Designer Spotlight: Soyer

October 30, 2012


I discovered a new brand while in NYC - Soyer.  Designer Soyun Shin has created an awesome knitwear company.  With sweater dressing in mind, Soyer is perfect for the modern woman on the go. The key to the clothing is sophistication meets versatility as the pieces are simple yet tailored with an unexpected twist.  I picked up this sweater in black from the boutique Curve in Soho and have been living in it since returning to London.  Literally I wore it Saturday on the plane, to brunch Sunday at Tom's Kitchen and today for lunch at the Dorchester.  Chances are I'll be wearing it tonight as well.  I really need to find a new obsession and fast!
