Ok fashion week was fun but unlike september were i went to almost every show on schedule i didnt have the energy this time round and also with Skool getting in the way. Sunday I went to Ann Sofie Back. Tueday i had fun doing a little thing modelling for Uniqlo and i must say iam impressed again by the t-shits and i will get the Keith Haring one definitely i had fun aswell doing the comercial which was a blast and it was nice working alongside fun and friendly people and seeing Mat Irwin and Nicola Formichetti do what they do best. Then i hopped to the Wound Magazine Launch @ Selfridges which was fun really gud music, cute people the drinks were flowing and the light snacks were scroumptous. I hope to see the magazine develop further as at the momment it is quite intresting keep up the good work. The rest of the week for me was rather boring and i envied those friends of mine who saw Gareth Pugh and attended the Block Party and Westwood show and party. Friday was my day tho i went to every show on schedule apart from CSM MA, Unconditonal, Julian Macdonald, Graeme Black and Allegra Hicks. The after Parties were amazing and made up for such a normal week for me Gavin douglas party was cute and calm at Pangrea it was dark and the music was soft the drinks were nice to... Julien Mcdonalds Private Party was really fun the drinks were flowing and they had the cutest smallest potion of fish and chips in those small ice cream pots which were tasty...it was fun night out to were i got drunk and celebreted my bday in style i must say xox
Shows i Attended
It was quite good feminine classic 40's glamour inspired designs the mood was set with a brief perfomance from a violin muscianPeter JensenHow Cute and Playful is his approach to fashion, the mood was set by his catwalk looking like a childrens nativity play.Plaid was present in another collection i see a massive trend personally i believed his menswear outwieghed the womenswear
Aminaka WilmontFor a first show was quite good the opening made an impact it went dark and the runway was covered in laser's as was the first model. Lasers were a large part of the collection with digtal laser prints dresses making up half of it the collection then switched to a dark vampy mood which was seen at several other shows and also light taloring with sharp shoulders. I love there crest the deigns were all wearable.
MAN The Most exciting show for me as young menswear designer to see people in the same field showcase thier work is always fun and to see Topman Design a label i truly admire in the flesh was a memory i will cherish.
Kesh showed first insipred by slot machines and maybe her time in new york with the apple ever present it was a mix of sports wear and preppy american design a cross between Cassette Playa (o how i miss her and i wish she showed) and Bape the collection was not really to my taste or likes with material sewn on to sweatshirts but hey it was her first and with no deisgn background lets hope she gets better.James Long was Major (with a capital M) his work reminded me of Hedi Slimanes work at Dior (o how i miss Hedi) Luke Worrall opened the show looking as dashing as ever there was dark feel to his collection and even a take on a straight jacket sheep skin and leather were ever present, Over chunky knits which were accesorised with hats looking like they came straight out of russia accessories were original with bum bags on shoulders and bags that covered the body.
Hans Christian Madsen was all wearable his clothes were discreet menswear extremely well made i liked his little add of humour with prison number chain. Parkas came with pointed hoods knits were sculptured and chunky with deep cut v-necks and oversized sweat shirts.
Topman Design were do i begin i was amazed at the design teams creative flair it was orignal and a very far cry from highstreet it is at a level of a high end ready to wear label. The show opened with crisp slim cut tailoring and then moved on to a more sporty vibe with wet look trousers and chunky quilted jackets miltary style boots were ever present it then moved on to woolen tracksuits that i absolutely adore and will be snatching them up in september checks and tartan was present to..... the styling was amazing the work of super stylist Alister Mackie he accessorised the tracksuit look instead of using the top and the bottom he wrapped the bottom around the models neck make the look more strong it was a collection well thought and well made something that shows 6 months of planning and thought time and energy well spent
