It’s P’Trique!!!!! The best celeb I’ve spotted all Fashion Week, alas the pap’s were more excited over a member of One Direction. On the plus side it gave me some space to go snap P’Trique and tell him how much I love the YouTube Videos such as Sh*t Fashion Girls Say.

Fashion Scout Ones to Watch was technically yesterday but that post was already massive! Yeashin really hit my fashion spot with a spectacular collection featuring folkloric knitwear.

I went backstage at Fashion Scout with Sharon Ashton to see the amazing nails she created for the Dans la Vie show. The look was long talons in black and nude to compliment the dark smokey eye and sculpted cheeks.

┬áToday I wore a bit of a mixed up outfit, due to the whole random weather issue and a mix up with a dress I’d ordered I didn’t really have anything to wear especially for the Westwood show so threw this lot on, all Vivienne Westwood like you needed to ask! I have also been wearing my Comic Relief t-shirts but it’s been a bit too chilly to show them off, must remember to get a shot.

Orla Kiely

I joined the Bobbi Brown team backstage again, huge thanks to Irene, today at Orla Kiely. The look was a chic but laid back Bardot, smokey eye and subtle shimmer lip.

The show it’s self had a sexy-secretary cheeky nudge to it, one thing Kiely never fails to offer is a beautifully thought out show set. She put the girls to work 9-5, although in the most stylishly dressed office I have ever seen!

Tough biker girls, smouldering insouciantly in velvet and leathers, luxury basics at their best.

Keeping with the knitwear theme I wore Vivienne Westwood again, I also had these beautiful vintage sunglasses from TK Maxx for when the sun decided to put in an appearance! I was wearing my Comic Relief t-shirt although it was a bit to chilly to show it off.

LFW: Dans la Vie S/S12

‘Clash Beauty – My Pop Madonna’

Dans la Vie by Rira Sugawara S/S12

Dans la Vie meaning ‘A start in life’ is Rira Sugawara’s line launched A/W 11, making S/S12 her second collection. The Japanese designer has a love of prints and created four distinct designs to show in London this season. The collection theme was formed from the aftermath of the Tokyo earthquake, it developed to include Madonnas, watching over and overcoming the the disaster. The first print ‘Camouflage Madonna’ was created by alternating stripes of a green Madonna with a red flower on yellow back ground. These pieces were accompanied down the runway with Madonnas ‘Like a Prayer’. Next was ‘Red Angel’ introduced with Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’, a dusky pink with cherubs holding huge flower petals. ‘Rose Madonna’ an intricate print of Madonna watching over tiny angels hard at work amongst pearls, hearts and pink roses, was viewed whilst ‘Only Girl’ by Rhianna played out loud. The final print ‘City Tokyo’ had a more solemn feel, darker in colour with yellow flowers against images of the city streets, repeated Madonnas watching over, as the collection finished amid Lady Gaga’s ‘Born this way’.

Whilst the underlying tone of the collection evokes sad memories of that day in March when disaster struck, the message of hope and protection was not lost. These beautifully constructed garments in bright colours and sumptuous fabrics reminded us all that life goes on.

I have to say this was on of my absolute favourite collections, whilst I am always a fan of print the details can sometimes be lost or the garment over taken, not here, not at all. The prints and designs worked in perfect harmony. Each look instantly desirable, I could have reached out and taken each piece, hurried it away home. Skirts were full, carried by tulle underskirts, waists nipped in, jackets cropped with matching shorts. There were also handbags, huge tote and oversize clutches perfectly complementing the garments but also envisonable as perfect statement pieces alone.
