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.

Damsel In Distress with No Dress; Can YOU help?

February 23, 2011 3 comments

Dear Everyone,

I am in a slight pickle!! The premier for Anuvahood is only a few weeks away and I still have not decided on a dress! (Let alone even look at shoe options)

I have always been a last minute kinda girl and if I’m honest I didn’t really give it much thought up until now. But I have decided to be more organized! Sooooo for the last couple of days I have used my spare time (which amounts to about 7 minutes, literally) to see what I can find.

I was torn between a gorgeous Alexander Wang design and a stunning piece from Lanvin. My choice was made for me when it turned out that neither was available in my size. *Angry face*.

I am now desperately seeking your help! What should I wear? No doubt my shoes will be from one of my favourite designers, Giuseppe Zanotti, but until I find the perfect dress, how do I find the perfect shoes? Hmmm. Maybe pick shoes first and work around that? Either way, please please please help a sista out. A sista who has no spare time, terrible organizational skills, is very indecisive and will find herself with no chosen dress come the Premier. Please leave suggestions below. I am also very interested in any suggestions of up and coming designers. Looking forward to your thoughts,

Love ya xx

Red is certainly Not Dead

I must admit: it’s been a while since I left the house on a night out; whether it be a casual party or high profile event, in a red dress. But with red being one of the hottest hues this season; do you dare to wear?

Emilio Pucci

Giorgio Armani

Beyonce gives us fever in the campaign for her latest fragrance

Red is associated with raw and passionate emotion, so this bold colour is only to be worn by those wanting to make a statement.

Don’t be shy to brighten up your outfit with only a splash of the colour. Don’t forget, as I mentioned in a previous post; this fall is all about combination and contrast. Frenzel causes a frenzy with his wild chunky knitwear, below.

My must haves are below; which are yours?

Ok, ok, I know it’s a cape and not a dress, but capes are red hot right now, and this one by Issa is scorching

This cape from Issa is to die for

Etro contrasts with grey; I love!
