When I first heard that the Italian Fashion Label was hosting a private event during London Fashion Week I knew it was going to be a great party to kick off the start of fashion week. Having attended the very first Iceberg Catwalk show in London since it made a comeback it was definitely one of those labels to watch. Also, I’m such a big fan of their Street Wear since the label was taken over at the helm from Designer James Long their newly appointed creative director from the UK. On Friday 13th Yes!! – I know what most were thinking in case anyone is superstitious it happened to be my lucky day as they had food catering from my favourite Meat Liquor Restaurant – just trying their burgers was delicious as I was feeling very hungry by 6pm while out and about accompanied by Aperol Spritz drinks served throughout the evening. My outfit staple to the party yesterday evening was my signature leather jacket from Iceberg worn with a white t-shirt from Boohoo Man and Skinny Jeans with a pair of desert boots as it’s officially autumn season. The Iceberg event was hosted at the 18montrose store in Kings Cross featuring DJ set’s from Tommy Gold, Jordss and Lifestyle Donald who entertained the crowd last night
The House of Holland returns to London Fashion Week this season to showcase their new collection ‘Global Citizen’ for Autumn Winter 2019 inspired by a utilitarian uniform for a generation who feel oppressed by how their world is governed. They want their voices to be heard and are prevalent in today’s society where fashion and politics are intertwined to make strong statements as the woman’s contemporary F**k you uniform staple.
This collection represents new millennials as the ‘Global Citizen’ to be outspoken and rebel for those who cross boundaries and show that creative inspiration cannot be confined. It is a reminder that women are strong, empowered and invigorated to make change which inspired Designer Henry Holland’s muses this season.

An exclusive collaboration between the House of Holland showcased a T-shirt project with the Netflix Show Sex Education and necklace accessories as vape cage carriers were created in partnership with VYPE. I also noticed the signature Grenson hiking boots were a carry over staple from the previous season but given a western woven paracord spin gave the collection a new edge too.
A juxtaposition between hard and soft details created outfits that were practical but still feminine were understated to form transition pieces for everyday work wear without being too overdressed.

It’s so great to be back at London Fashion Week again to view the new seasons collections for ready to wear womenswear as one of my favourite British Designers Henry Holland of The House of Holland debuts his Autumn Winter 19 collection ‘Global Citizen’ on the runway. There’s always a great buzz surrounding his shows including the people watching and the who’s who of the fashion world come together to support Henry an amazing British talent which we are so lucky to see his work every shown each season during LFW.
On another note I could not decide what to wear today prior to show day and when I was informed there would be an after party later in the evening it was a wise decision to wear something more fancy for the occasion as you do. For launch event’s there’s that saying as you can never be too overdressed but in which case always make sure it’s practical, but still understated. I think less is more to make a style statement that will make an impression so you exude confidence when attending an event like London Fashion Week.
The show itself was an evening time slot so it made sense to go out readily dressed in semi formal wear which looks great in any case. I knew I made the right decision as normally some people make 2 changes of clothes in between shows and events depending on your schedule it can be quite hectic at times. Trust me I know from experience. My style generally has a monochrome colour palate but that’s just me I guess and sometimes I do like to switch it up a bit and experiment with different colours and textures. Other than that it really depends on my mood and how I feel on a day like today.

At the helm of one of the world’s most coveted brands Kardashian Kollection and former head Designer Bianca Whyte makes her official debut during London Fashion Week with her luxury ready to wear womenswear collection.
The designer honed her creative flair in the fashion industry after spending 4 years designing in-house for the Kardashian Kollection in Los Angeles which was a Hollywood dream come true. Her roster of Celebrity clientele also include Cindy Crawford and Kelly Osborne.
Bianca founded her own label Whyte Studio in June 2017 in London with her Mother who inspired her as a muse. Whyte Studio’s label DNA draws influences from Bianca’s time as a professional motocross athlete in Australia where androgynous and unisex designs became synonymous as her trademark style.
I was very delighted to get a preview of the new collection where I observed sports inspired outerwear pieces adapted for versatility as trans seasonal separates with cross functional purpose.

Observing each item of clothing it’s evident only the finest quality and hand selected fabrics are tailored with unique detailing to create classic silhouettes for contemporary and minimal impact. A sense of modernity was captured in the spirit of the collection to mirror the personality of Bianca everyday lifestyle as both Fashion Designer and International House DJ where Music meets Fashion

It’s definitely one of the most anticipated shows to watch during London Fashion Week and always full of energy buzzing with international press and loyal celebrity clientele. As per usual guest were entertained with hospitality with a drinks reception and delicious bites to eat pre-show as the fashionista crowd gathered for the show.
The atmosphere inside the Topshop Show Space in the lead up to show time was filled with excitement as the VIP arrivals started to fill up the Front Rows amongst the fashion press, stylist and bloggers hot on the heels of social media to snap Instagram pics and update their content with live streaming of the catwalk show.
Holland’s theme for this collection evoked street wear sub cultures influenced by the urban music scene and delicate uptown polished looks show contrast between hard and soft silhouettes.
A combination of floral, camouflage prints and HOH signature tartan were motif throughout the whole collection while bold stripe details adorn tracksuit garment separates. Observing the looks which came down the runway show slogans emblazoned on garments especially hooded sweaters.
How’s your week been guys and I’m guesing you’re schedule is already crammed in the lead up to fashion week. Who’s ready for a long weekend of fashion shows, presentations and events as it’s now Saturday so we are more a less approaching the half way point of London Fashion Week. Since Thursday, I just could not wait for today’s show as Henry Holland one of my favourite Designers on the LFW Schedule debut’s his new Autumn Winter 2018 Collection.
I’ve been out since the early part of this afternoon for another show at the Freemasons Hall prior to House of Holland with plenty of time to relax in between shows which is quite rare during fashion week. Also, its Chinese New Year so I thought it would be great to have a spot of lunch and Celebrate with some Oriental Cuisine at Busaba Eathai. Happy Chinese New Year everyone and I hope it brings us all good luck and prosperity this year as well as happiness.
With that said it’s just my luck I found something to wear to the shows today and it’s all about nailing that weekend look starting with pairing your favourite smart casual separates together to form a relaxed off duty look. I’m a great fan of tailoring as it’s so versatile in updating even the simplest casual pieces transforming your look from day into night. Just admire this classic soft cotton jersey blazer from Calvin Klein Collection as worn by me to the shows today it’s really comfortable and effortless without trying too hard. I always suggest there should always be a compromise between style and comfort in most situations while on the go. After all it is fashion week and most likely you will be on your feet all day.
Fashion Week is always the best place to spot the latest Street Style and the House of Holland Show today proved to be the place to be seen during London Fashion Week. Even after the show the crowds of keen onlookers and passer by congregated outside the Topshop Showspace Covent Garden in hope of spotting a quick glimpse of their favourite Celebrities. Check out this cool Pop-Art inspired look in monochrome which looked very Andy Warhol so it was the perfect opportunity for me to snap a quick photo as Street Style Photographers and the Tabloid Press had their camera lenses at the ready. If you want to know who was seen leaving the show we spotted Influencer Cassyette, Nicola Roberts ‘Girls Aloud’ band member and Paloma Faith as they got into their chauffer driven Mercedes Benz G-Wagons. Front Row attendee’s at the show Mary Chateris-Furze, Peaches Geldoff, the Catwalk Queen herself Alex Chung, Editors Phillip Picardi, Suzy Menke’s and Hillary Alexander.
Katie Eary the critically acclaimed menswear designer returns this season to London Fashion Week with a positive message of empowerment as she debuts an exclusive womenwear collection inspired by The Powerpuff Girls.
The new collection co-incides with the cartoons 20th Anniversary where the 15 piece collection Celebrates Girl Power, Equality and Diversity which will honour the new generation of girls and young women breaking down gender stereotypes.
Eary’s clever take on re-inventing the Iconic Superhero Sister’s for the new era of female empowerment is brought to life with her signature prints in luxurious fabrics that are vibrant, playful in spirit and full of life.
Industry trend setters gathered for the Autumn Winter 2018 collection at London’s Maddox Gallery in Mayfair to see the collection where the Powerpuffed backdrop and an all-girl skateboarding squad set the scene for the LFW presentation.
I felt inspired by Japanese sub cultures when viewing the collection brought back so many childhood memories of growing up. It was also intriguing to see how Eary re-invented such iconic cartoon characters appealing to a new generation of aspiring young women to feel empowered.
Each piece from the collection was very wearable with quirky Japanese influences that brought edge to the range in the form of separates including tops, sweatshirts dresses and trousers to attract even the most discerning street wear fans.

It’s almost time for Fashion Week which starts this Thursday and soon enough you realise how quickly time flies by with Men’s Fashion Week occurring just only last month. Today I’m checking the diary for anything important to make sure I have not missed anything cool going on in town. We can all relate to that feeling of FOMO when everybody else is bragging about how great that party was the other night is usually the case during Fashion Week. Believe it or not it happens to the best of us when you’re not down on the list or weren’t invited. Oh well never mind… But maybe next time ehh.
It’s only Monday today, but believe it not a friend of mine has reminded me that we have an event to attend this week for the opening reception of Celebrated Photographer Alistair Guy and Marcella Actor Nicholas Pinnock for the private view of their latest exhibition English Rogue’s. I always look forward to seeing Alistair’s work and wrote a featured piece on him for his previous exhibition Strong Women featuring 60’s Style Icon’s Daphne Selfe and Jan de Villeneuve.

This time round the curated exhibition by the duo Artist in collaboration select nine models, Actors, and Style Icon’s which influenced British Popular Culture inspired by smugglers and rogues as lovable and mischievous.
The series of photographs taken on location at the OXO Tower restaurant with a view over the river Thames has a historical significance to coincide with stories of the Scoundrel’s and Pirates arrival into London.
Today’s press launch is held in Association with luxury retailer Harvey Nichols, Kodak film, Bacardi Spirits and London Menswear Label Indigo and Goods celebrates the honest rogue. Observing the portraits they were shot in classic black and white images which I love as there is always that sense of nostalgia and connection to the past. In my opinion I admire the editorial style of appeal in which the photo’s were taken are so very intriguing to look at.
It was also great to spot familiar faces you see around fashion like acclaimed Models Richard Biedul and Robert Konjic be part of the exhibition. You just have to see these works of art up close as Alistair is very talented and a regular contributor to international style publications like Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and i-D. Anyone who was anyone from the fashion, music and film industry was there to show their support yesterday evening. It was also a great opportinity to catch up with some of my industry peer’s just before fashion week start’s. I’ll see you guys there!
Finally, just incase I forget the exhibition will run for three months only from tomorrow 13th February 2018, following the VIP Private view last night.
