STYLEetc Magazine Spring Issue Launch

Wearing: Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Gigot dress, union jack tights and Animal toe courts, fabulous Designer Earrings I got years ago at H Samuel which you can’t see due to my wild mane and my stunning Wendy Brandes ‘little woolfe’ necklace which you can just see as a tiny blip.

No I did not wear this for St Georges day. Yes I did think I was cool until I got into town and saw armies of drunken men wearing flags #fail. But it’s Vivienne Westwood and it’s fabulous lol.

Anyway I was out to celebrate the launch of STYLEetc’s Spring issue at Harvey Nichols, big pat on the back to Anna-Louise, Gemma and the STYLE etc team for making it happen. You will have to excuse the iphone photos, but I will share some of the official shots when they are available.

My work on STYLE.etc Magazine & Meeting will.i.am

Those of you who follow my Twitter and Facebook will know I’ve been up to quite a lot of things of late. One of them is writing for STYLEetc magazine. Above are photos of the AW12 edition for which I wrote a piece on London Fashion Week. You can pick up the magazine at various locations around Manchester, Liverpool and Chester or read it online. I have also been in London this week to meet the fabulous will.i.am, who was launching his new iPhone camera accessory. The range will be coming up North but it launches in Selfridges on 6th December, do go take a look at the set up in store as my friend Clarie who works with Will has designed it. You can read my article ‘It’s dope, it’s freaking, it’s jammywammy… it’s STYLEetc meets will.i.am’ online. It was fun meeting Will, he is such a nice guy and we shared a mutual appreciation of each others bling!
