Mono @ Rtister Meet The Designer Event: A-Line

Shirt: H&M Trend
Hollywood Sandals: ASOS
Pearl Choker: Zara

Last week I attended Rtister, Chelsea AW14 Press Day presenting A Line. I thought this will be the perfect day to showcase these Japrint trousers by Les 100 Ciels. I'm totally loving the polka dots and that it is 100% silk satin. They are the perfect ensemble to any outfit; whether you wish to dress them up or down, the possibilities are endless.

I opted to wear the Japrint trousers with a stripe shirt; for an even more daring look. I thought why not mix prints for a chic evening affair and pair with sandals, clutch and pearl choker. When in doubt, monochrome is the way to go!! 

The Rtister AW14 Press day - A Line, Meet The designer event went down a treat, the store was packed to the 9s, had a nice serene atmosphere and buzzing with fashion alike individuals. Electro swing music filled the store by DJ Annie O & her fro was super fly. Canap├ęs and Champagne was also flowing all night long. Sweet

Anne Sophie Kohler the creative director of A-Line impressed wearing one of her favourite looks from her SS14 line, which consisted of a white jacket with a yellow leather trim and matching skirt. Definitely a look that can take you from day to night in no time.

I really loved Anne Sophie's line, especially all the impeccable  detailing. From the tailored pieces to the Organza sleeves and plenty of textures. It was fresh, feminine, innovative, mimialism with an urban twist. Very sleek and contemporary. The colour palette was muted pinks, whites, yellows,grey black and navy. A-line delivers collections comprised of everyday wear essentials- comfortable, yet creative style for the carefree city dweller. To discover more visit A-line London.

On Friday I headed to Notting Hill for a wander, I love passing by Portobello Road to view the pastel candy like houses, how adorable are they?!? and shopping along the market stalls; You can find absolutely anything amongst these streets; vintage trinkets,  food spots, jewellery &  hat stalls. 

Today I opted to wear this chunky cap sleeve knit by Les Ciels* A great transitional piece. The depth of the knit makes it great for the cooler spring periods.

The weather was not as hot but not cold, I thought it will be perfect teamed with distressed denim jeans; particularly this white pair to make it an ultimate statement piece. Lastly I wore my trainers of the moment.

Nike Roshe Run in Palm Tree Print;since the first time I laid my eyes on them I just knew I had to have them. I'm about that Palm Tree Life. Are you?

Les 100 Ciels SS14 Launch

Tasty Cupcakes by

I recently attended the Les 100 Ciels SS14 launch which took place on 02/04/14 at the first London location in the heart of the West end, St Christopher's Place.

Les 100 Ciels originates from France and is inspired by Chinese Poetry which provides the idea of infinity, to develop Les 100 Ciels, which also means essential in French pronunciation. This then comes together into the metaphorical meaning of Les 100 Ciels is the sky consistently there and the same yet invariable changing (like an essential product)or shortened as one hundred skies.

Warehouse Fashion Shooters Festival

On 22nd March, I attended the Warehouse Fashion Shooters Festival in association with ELLE magazine. Which took place at the Loading Bay Gallery in trendy Brick Lane.

The Fashion Shooters Festival was an exclusive event for the budding photographer and/or fashion enthusiast. 

The aim of the event was to inspire and empower young woman to get behind the lens and shoot away and become the next generation of photographers. As well as the launch of Warehouse recent SS14 campaign with Supermodel +  fashion photographer extraordinaire Helena Christensen. 

They had a fantastic opportunity giving a chance of a lifetime to twenty lucky individuals to shoot the 13th shot under the watchful mentoring eye of Helena Christensen.  The budding photographers will get to feel the thrill of a real-life shoot, picking up the camera and directing the model. How Cool is that?!?.
