How you doing? Coping with the heat as best you can? I’m melting here in London, and this is the 4th day in of the summer hols. My kids are driving me ever so slightly bonkers!! Not much fashion in the mix…more like major kids activities planning lol!!
Aside from my parental endeavours, a few days ago I was relieved of kid watch, and enjoyed spending the day with my fellow stylist and friend Lara Arthur @Styledbyla_ at the Pure London Show at Kensington Olympia, where the new wave of upcoming fashion for Spring/Summer 2019 was showcased. This is a really cool event to attend if you have any remote interest in fashion or you work within the industry. The best thing about it, is it’s a completely free event….which is quite a rarity in this day and age! The show runs across 3 days so it’s highly likely you’ll be able to find a day that suits you to attend.
As a personal stylist I get a lot out of attending the event. I love to see the newest trends we have to look forward to, networking with new designers is a firm favourite aspect of mine, and I love the talks and catwalk shows that run throughout the day. It’s a fun vibe, and a truly creative atmosphere. On this occasion I even had the pleasure of meeting some truly inspirational bloggers @officialgeorgefriend, @fullerfigurefullerbust, and @itsdaniejade who were talking all things “Influencer” and social media. They are well accomplished in their fields, and had some wise words of encouragement for me, as recently I’ve been on the receiving end of online trolling!…..But as my gran always says “what doesn’t break us makes us stronger!!!”
So now for the exciting part of this post. here are some highlights from the show; my favourite pieces, designers and pics.
All in all the Pure London show is a fabulous day out! For Spring/ Summer 2019 there are beautiful brights, stripes, slogans, florals, embellished designs, tweeds, patterns, high shine and pieces that ooze sustainability to come!! I can’t wait till the next show for Autumn/Winter 2019!! If you get the chance you should pop along! Have any of you already been, and if you have I’d love to hear what you thought about it? Or do you know of any other good fashion events?
PS. All designers, stylists and influencers tagged in this post can be found on Instagram if you want to share the love and check them out 🙂
Till the next time…..
