One reasons to celebrate the last days of summer... It's my first piece from the AW 2014 collections!
Speaking of collections I have been whizzing all over London this week in a frantic bid to see as many shows as possible. So far I have swooned over Burberry, Gasped at Erdem, Danced until I dropped at the Rick Owens takes over Selfridges party, attempted to get snapped by Tommy Tom, Welcomed the beautiful Marchesa home, been laden down by some brilliant goody bags and secretly wished I was Cara Delevingne. What fun!
I'm here in NY at my beautiful apartment and I have just found this old photo of Sonny, Stella and I in Paris. It instantly bought back some really happy memories and made me think about how lucky I am to be able to travel the world and fuel my passion for fashion.
I have seen some amazing shows this week and there is so much more to come. My shopping list is bulging already and I still have London, Paris and Milan to come!
Here's a peek at some of the New York shows I've already been to...
Creatures of comfort - loved all the boiler suits! I'm already planning on wearing these this winter. Check out your local diy stores for painters suits bargain hunters!
Donna Karan - The voluminous skirts and graphic prints were right up my alley.
3.1 Philip Lim - gorgeous modern patchwork and I have already instructed my PA to hunt down those sunglasses!
Dolce & Gabbana have outdone themselves this time with the most beautiful, magical and fun presentation I have ever had the pleasure of attending. Teetering on the very edge of the Mediterranean sea in a secret cove gown after beautiful gown alighted from pretty little boats and drifted past an adoring crowd of deckchair ensconced sightseers. After the show there was a mad dash for the villa above so we could place our orders and then the party of the century! La Dolce Vita boys!
Iconic British high street brand Topshop has unveiled it's new collection with quirky label Meadham Kirchoff. There are 80 wacky but wonderful pieces to choose from and I'll definitely be snapping up some for myself soon. The collection was inspired by the duo's imaginary dream girl band and I am so ready for my audition!
