Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well on this glorious Saturday. On Monday evening I attended The Penthouse London for the Bloggers Love Fashion Week Summer Garden Chic event. There were so many fantastic brands to meet and purchase from at a discounted price. There was also a swishing area from Swap In The City UK. Four brands from the event were in the first fashion show and the brand Reiss had their own fashion show to conclude the evening. As the evening's dress code was 'Summer Garden Chic' I donned some floral wear including a floral headband which you can see on my Instagram.
For ladies in need of a larger cup size, but the desire for beautifully sexy underwear you need to check out this brand. I was very much drawn to the Fifi (shown above) and Liliana styles.
Blogger Melanie Grunshaw has put together a fabulous collection of fashion items that are very pretty indeed with some simpler pieces in addition. A very appealing brand to most girls and definitely fashion bloggers. All items can be worn casually in the daytime and with a few accessories take you into the night.
With a selection of jewellery designers Apache Rose London create stunning statement jewellery with a tribal vibe. There are so many pieces I fell in love with instantly.
The essence of Taro Collection is vintage glam along with more edgy pieces, including gems and lots of chain detailing. Just one piece from this collection would turn a simple t-shirt and jeans into a styled up look.
Guirado design was founded by the daughter of Spanish abstract artist Juan Antonio Guirado (1932-2010). It's beautiful to see that Guirado's art has been transformed into not only wearable art, but also prints and bespoke wallpapers. The quality and vibrancy of these pieces are amazing. I love the skull designs, but each and every item is eye catching.
I previously met Major London 05 at the Bloggers Love Up & Coming Brands event last year and featured some wish list pieces on my blog earlier this year, link! This is a very cool clothing brand with easy to wear items a plenty. The prints and vibrant colours are really fun and perfect for the change of seasons.
If bling is your thing then Sweetz Boutique is right up your street. Beanies are an essential part of my wardrobe. These broach designs give them a more interesting style.
With a collection of urban statement and vintage glam jewellery there are pieces to suit every fashionistas wardrobe.
This brand has fashion pieces for everyone from children to adults. Not only does the Cako collection include fantastic prints there are also crystallised and colour changing designs too. There are vests, t-shirts and sweaters with bottoms being added to the Cako line also. The frogs are so me :)
Affordable on trend fashion at your fingertips. A great clothing collection from The City Rack with the addition of footwear, jewellery and accessories to perfect your chosen outfit. At the event there were some fantastic jumpsuits, skorts and other more detailed pieces such as the items shown above. Busola from the brand was so lovely to meet. The City Rack is a brand to watch for sure.
Founder of Maro Mariam Andrawiss blends with ease her international Egyptian and French influences into her jewellery line. Each piece is timeless, elegant and easy to wear using the best sourced material. I love the simplistic nature of this jewellery collection that has at it's base silver, gold and black gold designs.
Uunique London bring to you mobile fashion accessories including luxury leather and high-end Swarovski Elements designs. I prefer the more simple quilted designs of the Fashion Core range, but you may prefer the Elite, Premiere or Millionaire ranges if you like the bling. There are also The Glider cases with a gel grip pad to secure your device while you use your camera function on your phone without removing it from your case completely.
It was fantastic to talk with Nadia at this event. Nadia was very keen to be there getting to know bloggers and potential customers personally rather than through her staff. Some of the pieces within Nadia's collection are very elegant while others have a more playful feel such as the London Eye & Carnival jewellery pieces. My favourite items are The Regent bag with a fantastic colour range and the Large Wallet. Nadia also very kindly gifted me with a pair of earrings that I will be featuring in my next post which will be an outfit of the day.
Rachel creates headwear to bring out your inner drama queen. All pieces are handmade from quality materials by Rachel herself with seasonal collections released twice yearly. For statement headpieces to make any crowd go wow look this way.
The designer behind the brand Eskay W is SK Wong. SK was a total pleasure and so passionate about his designs showing me how they can work for any woman. SK's Verso collection contains designs of reversible pieces such as the items shown above, perfect for work and play. The palette of the Verso collection is very fresh and clean and made from such quality materials including roll-tweed. I love how each piece allows you to change how you wear it whether you simply reverse it completely or roll up the hems and/or sleeves. SK's Autumn/Winter 14/15 collection includes materials that are pleated, wrapped and layered with a muted, yet slightly moodier palette.
Unfortunately while talking with some brands I missed the first fashion show featuring four brands, but I have included all brands that attended in this post.
Reiss portray themselves as a sexy, modern, iconic, design-led brand for both men and women. The collection above shows pieces perfect for spring/summer workwear and cruises alike.
Other brands at the event included:
Dukes Boots produces luxury handmade leather boots that can be customised to suit your personal style.
A brand dedicated to versatile, playful and timeless styles. The Royal Blue Boat Neck Jersey Dress looked great and very easy to wear on one of the girls there.
I love how Made are using recycled or sustainable raw materials sourced from local independent retailers and turning them into very wearable jewellery pieces. Made also have within their collection bags and accessories.
Majenta Beauty could not attend due to personal reasons, but they are a make-up brand I would love to see more of.
For a lash range to emphasise your peppers check out this brand.
This popular footwear store always has great finds inside.
Want to pimp up those shoes you are now bored of or simply to add a flash of personal style? If the answer is yes then check out ShoeLicks for easy to use, one size fits all, waterproof and ready to wear sole designs.
Loved by celebrities these rollers are designed to flatten while you lay down to ensure a good night's sleep and a great hairstyle in the morning when you wake.
I also received a goodie bag of treats including a MADARA Balancing Facial Soap, a NANSHY Flat Top Buffer Brush and a REBEL KITCHEN Choco Mylk.
Well done to Danielle for organising another fabulous Bloggers Love event. I only wish I could have attended days two and three of #BLFW which were themed 'Mad Hatters Tea Party' and 'All Black City Chic'.
