London Fashion Week: PPQ x Moda in Pelle


Last week I gave away tickets to the PPQ show at London Fashion Week. Sadly, I was unable to go due to illness but thought I would share the collection and fabulous shoes with you.

The SS15 PPQ collection was cyber-inspired with plenty of wearable space-age pieces in crisp white, punctuated with futuristic metallic detailing - how cool is the silver sparkle in the models' hair? So pretty and fun for next spring. The high shine factor was also evident in the shoe collection, designed by luxury high street footwear label, Moda in Pelle. Come the new season, the glimmering white shoes with their kaleidoscopic embellishment and metal heels will look as good with a little white dress or a pair of light denim jeans.

Giveaway: Tru Diamonds

The oh-so-glamorous Tru-Diamonds™ (the world's leading simulated diamond jewellery boutique) was the official sponsor of the Scottish Fashion Awards 2014, held in London earlier this month. I sat next to the very chatty and very charming Eric (he runs the PR for the brand) and he told me that they were interested in working with fashion bloggers in a bid to raise the brand's profile in the fashion industry. So - for the sake of my readers - I promptly offered my services! Discussions were had, and a giveaway was the end result... one of you lucky Daydreamers will win this earrings and pendant combo!

London Fashion Week: DAKS SS15

A few seasons ago, I attended my first DAKS show. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and, as a woman who likes a classic cut, I admired the tradition of the house, which was established over 100 years ago. Many said it was a dull collection (AW14) but actually, I found comfort in the timeless silhouettes, solid fabrics and DAKS camel. DAKS was DAKS, and will always be, DAKS. 

Or so we thought.

Beauty Busters: TONI&GUY x Marchesa SS15

TONI&GUY, the official hair partner at London Fashion Week, show us how to achieve the natural, glossy waves seen at the serenely beautiful Marchesa show. Think VIP festival chic, beach waves without the salty air, polished but not too glamorous... This is summer hair at its very best.

London Fashion Week: Amanda Wakeley SS15

This whole it-looks-like-autumn-but-feels-like-summer thing we've got going on right now makes watching the SS15 shows even more exciting. Sometimes, Scotland in September means it's just a touch too chilly to focus on next summer, but thanks to the warm weather we're currently experiencing, it's easy to imagine next spring's trends right now.
