Rock The Catwalk with Core Spirit

October 30, 2011 Leave a comment

After attending Rock The Catwalk’s private press launch on behalf of Little Miss Fashion (full write up can be found on the LMF site) I was asked to present their official public launch which took place Wednesday 26th October, with Dirty Media London.

For those who do not know about Rock The Catwalk yet, check out the LMF site. But to brief you quickly; Rock The Catwalk is a fashion event that offers exposure and a free catwalk to designers, make up artists and stylists. All you have to do is simply book your slot online and start preparing for and organizing your show! The catwalk is situated in Core Spirit’s flagship store on the fashionable New Bond St. Shoppers, fashionistas and passers by are able to watch shows as they browse, and see what great talent is out there.  And the opportunities do not stop there; the general public can vote online for their favourite collections, and the most popular will be branded and produced through the Core spirit label. So yep,  it’s quite a big deal and could make the dreams of an ambitious fashion designer come true.

So of course it was a real privilege to be involved with what I believe to be a fantastic fashion event and concept and a huge platform for fashion creatives. I got to interview the designers, the models and of course get feedback from the public. Core Spirit even offer free make overs to the general public, so I hit New Bond St and brought in a load of girls to beautify themselves 🙂 And of course I myself was asked to strut down the catwalk; something I wasn’t expecting but did all the same so as not to be a party pooper hehehe.

I’m really excited about the future of Rock The Catwalk and look forward to seeing some of you at the next one.  Shout out Core Spirit and Dirty Media London  xx

Marie Macsharry to debut at LFW

September 13, 2011 Leave a comment

Marie Macsharry casts models for the SS12 collection, named “Kaizen” which will debut at LFW on Saturday 17th September at The Westbury Hotel, Bond St.

 

The Kaizen range boasts a 20 piece collection, to include dresses and separates. The label aims to show corsetry in a new more wearable light by showing how it can be mixed with MM’S tailored separates in a chic, fashion forward style.

Feminine no longer has to mean demure and vulnerable and the tailored power suit no longer has to be boring and masculine.

The new collection is in keeping with the brand values of femininity and love for the female form but with a slightly more edgy glamour and fashion forward attitude.

Inspiration is drawn from many sources including architecture, nature and origami as well as historic dress. Marie MacSharry also has an interest in surface texture and fabric manipulation so occasionally this will be a focus on the garments.

I have been invited to Marie Macsharry’s debut show at London Fashion Week and look forward to seeing the full collection.

She’s HOT! Anita Darling Ubhi

April 13, 2011 Leave a comment

My latest feature for “She’s HOT” had to be the cool and sassy Anita Darling Ubhi, Fashion stylist and founder/editor of award-winning fashion site Anita Darling.

My first encounter with Anita was when she was painting my nails for a beauty shoot. Little did I know how much talent and persistence this young woman possessed.  It wasn’t long though before we were talking all things fashion and industry and I started to discover that Anita was certainly one to watch in the fashion world.

Anita Darling Ubhi boasts an extensive CV and experience that most women in the fashion industry would envy, but it was hard work and dedication, mixed with passion and Anita’s entrepreneurial skills that deservedly got her where she is today.

A Fashion Stylist & Critique of all things Stylish and Eclectic – Anita Darling has an eye for the finer things in life from fashion to art and has been trained in her craft at the London College of Fashion.

“I have always been a collector, whether it’s little bits of advice from world-renowned experts in the Fashion & Beauty industry, or magazines, jewellery, shoes, random bits here and there, feathers and even anything sparkly – whatever – it’s all pure gold to me. And I love scribbling it all down in my notebook…so I thought, why not share it with everyone…? My website includes everything from Fashion, Beauty, Books and Art and there are Designer features, Interviews and Reviews. Readers can also send in pictures if they wish…”


Whilst studying Fashion Design & Management at the London College of Fashion, Anita Darling began working as a Fashion Consultant at Luxury Designer boutique, Nanette Lepore. As a designer to the stars, Nanette was quick to pick up on Anita’s passion and knowledge in the industry and quickly made her Personal Stylist at the boutique. A number of celebrities from Kate Moss to Victoria Beckham visited and were styled and dressed by Anita. From this Anita began to receive a number of personal shopping requests and with clientele quickly growing, she left the boutique in 2008 to focus on working as a Fashion Stylist. Since, Anita Darling has had a number of high-end clients that she has styled for as well as a number of publications that her styling work has been featured in.

Even I have been styled by and worked with Anita 🙂 And it really was a pleasure working with her; very innovative and sure of what she wants, but still very sweet and friendly.

In March 2011 Anita Darling was awarded Best Fashion Blog by Harrods of London and her site has now been nominated in the Online Fashion Awards 2011.
