CHRISTMAS RED

WOWZA! This incredible Zara red toggle dress literally screamed CHRISTMAS to me. I’ve always adored Christmas Nutcrackers and Red Soldiers; this popping red maxi dress channels these traditional Christmas ornaments in a fashion forward way. The elongated length adds elegance, while the black toggles add a unique twist. The distinctive neckline is also a beautiful detail. I styled the remarkable dress with thigh high black faux-leather boots with gold stud details. The black faux-leather feather trimmed gloves and black faux fur pillbox hat are stylish accessories to keep warm, while the final yet VERY ESSENTIAL cherry on top is a Gucci red lip. I’m feeling very festive!

FASHION WEEK

London Fashion Week 16th – 20th February and London Fashion Week Festival 22nd – 25th February are the biggest events, not to be missed by avid fashion followers. However, there is intense pressure to deliver an insanely chic outfit. It is essential to style a classy outfit that is fashion forward. You cannot fail with a statement trouser and polka dots are the pattern this season … with this in mind, for Berlin Fashion Week, I co-ordinated this combination of Black extreme palazzo trousers, a black and white polka dot shirt with balloon sleeves and tie waist, red fur and dark red sock boots. I accessorised with a black baker boy hat and a polka dot bag. With these fresh and fashionable pieces I wore my signature red lip. The fundamental quality is that you feel confident in your outfit. 
 
On another note Fashion Fans I urge you to visit Berlin, especially in Fashion Week! Although the German festival has not yet become as huge as London/Paris/New York, the events I attended were invaluable to my fashion learning. Fashion Tech and the Ethical Fashion show opened my eyes to the future of fashion and the importance of changing our ways for the better of the planet; vital information best fed through industry talks. Berlin on the whole is an incredibly vibrant city full of mesmerising Street Art alongside quaint/archaic architecture. The city is a key shopping location for both luxury in KaDeWe and concept stores such as Bikini Berlin. Concept stores are the future; the insanity of fast fashion has converted fashion desires to constant ‘wants’ making consumers forget the importance to experience the buzz of shopping. Bikini Berlin provides a healthy mix of stores both independent and chain brands, food stores to cater to any wants, while an area provides an exquisite bar and swing lounge area. A place to stimulate all senses and bring enjoyment back to shopping experiences.
