Event Highlight: My favorite show this season had to be Barrus…
Barrus is a Turkish brand who presented their AW17 collection at Freemason’s Hall on day four of London Fashion Week.
Design duo, Neslişah Yılmaz and Nur Çağlayan, took inspiration from the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the seventh wonder of the ancient world. Their new line featured contemporary design from antediluvian roots in the ancient heritage of Mesopotamia. The fabrics were delicate and luxurious and swished down the runway like a gentle wave with every step. The jewel tones combined with satin and lace fabric felt uber expensive, but the designs featured in black & also crisp white were my favourite.
What am I wearing? New Look, Vintage TopShop.
Hair: Seed Salon,Fulham.
Make Up: Doll 10 cosmetics, Urban Decay, Mac, Smashbox & NYX, KIKO
Style Note: Just when you have recovered from the last round of fashionistas, fashion parties and fashion shows along comes the next London Fashion Week…. boy does it creep up on you! February fashion week is always the one I dread purely because I’m an bajan island girl so I am simply not built for the cold, wind and rain which is what most February’s in London consist of.
I made a conscious decision prior to February London Fashion Week to opt for comfort & warmth above all impulses to follow the trends regardless of weather conditions!
First stop was to BPR… my lovely friend and PR chica Camilla helped me pick out some party dresses from Rare London… which is one of my go to online boutiques for dresses to flatter my figure and create curves in all the right places. See one of my new favourite dresses from them in the images below at the Universal Music Pre Brit Awards party with my girly Sarah Jane Crawford. Then I checked in with the PR girls at high street favourite New Look. I went in looking for trends that would keep me warm and footwear that would keep me comfortable! A few staple pieces that really excited me were my first experience of rocking the “Mom jean”, the rocker tee trend, fluffy stilettos & Metallic boots! Check out all my looks below!
