Dover Street Market

Last night i visited the super cool Dover Street Market and took a few sneaky snaps. The atmosphere of the store is brilliant and the womenswear floors are great with labels such as YSL, Lanvin, Givenchy and Alaia. The props and knick knacks that decorate the store make shopping a lot more fun and interesting than usual. It's definitely worth a visit!

Lanvin Teaser Trailers

Lanvin continues to tease us by releasing a two trailers, the first being a fun teaser featuring Alber sketching away in his studio and the second features Natasha Poly behind the scenes of the shoot, speaking about the Lanvin and H&M collaboration. They have even blurred the clothes so we can't see a thing! The anticipation is killing me!

Studio 1B: Final Film

This is the film I produced as part of a group for my last project in year one Fashion Illustration. It is based on Andy Warhol and his screen tests and features models Jo Renwick and Rebecca Long. Watch and enjoy and look out for the styling!

Lanvin Boutique

Today i visited the Lanvin Boutique in Mayfair to research for my current illustration project. I had to take a few snaps of the beautiful windows. I always love how Lanvin are able to present the elegance and luxury of their garments together with expressing their creativity and wacky influences as well.

SS011 Paris Fashion Week: And the winners are...

Paris Fashion Week, it seems has given me a problem...there were too many beautiful collections! Here are just a few of my favourites...

Nina Ricci
I was pleasantly surprised to find how beautiful this collection was. The textured ruffles with the nudes and pastels make this wonderfully pretty and feminine, working towards the water-coloured pieces at the end of the show proved an impressive start to 
Paris Fashion Week.  

Manish Arora
I loved this collection for the fun and futuristic element it embodied. The candy coloured latex and the crazy car shaped millinery by Christophe Coppens made for a great show with plenty of eye popping outfits and beautiful embellishment.

Christian Dior
There were so many great looks within this Spring/ Summer collection i found it incredibly difficult to choose favourites.
I loved the exotic theme with an edge of sailor. The tropical colours on the sheer silks are amazing, an absolutely brilliant show.

This may be an obvious choice but there were a few pieces that had the wow factor in the beautifully set Chanel show. Carmen Cass stole the show in an apricot feathered dress, my favourite garment of Paris Fashion Week. The show featured an amazing EIGHTY models! Each adding an individual character to each look.

Elie Saab
This collection featured the most beautiful selection of gowns of Paris Fashion Week. The blush- peach colours and column dresses are so elegant, i'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of them on the red carpet very soon!

SS2011 Lanvin Collection!
The show i've been waiting for! A glamourous collection complete with the most elegant dresses. The flesh tones are beautiful together with the metal work embellished bugs. I love those bright fuscias and reds too, Karlie Kloss looks amazing. A triumph of a show, Lanvin never fails to disappoint!

Paris Vogue's 90th Anniversary FĂȘte

Vogue Paris marked it's 90th anniversary this week with what's surely going to be known as the party of the season. Joint by the who's-who of the fashion world, the ball was held at the Hotel Pozzo di Borgo with the theme of Stanley Kubrick film Eyes Wide Shut. Anna del Russo was quite simply the belle of the ball, wearing a Gareth Pugh head dress and custom made Pucci gown, her look was said to be inspired by Lady Gaga. Gisele also looked great, wearing a Phillip Treacy half-mask.
Find below my fashion illustration, inspired by Stanley Kubrick film Clockwork Orange.
