Look of the Day 16.10.14

After a couple of manic weeks, I finally got some time to shop, and found some great stuff! I'm loving the new suit from Coco released at this months FaMESHed. The hand in pocket design is just perfect, and such a great idea for this soft, drapey jacket. There's a men's version too, at The Men's Dept (TMD), which is where I found the fabulous necklace from Mandala, and the glasses from SORGO. I visited the Cosmetics Fair too, which has a Halloween theme this round, and also includes HAIR!!!

Feeling groovy

There's been a lot of sixties fashion influence showing on the runways this year, so it's no surprise that some of the designers at the Vintage & Cool Fair have turned to that iconic decade for their inspiration. I decided to channel my inner Twiggy and put together a groovy look from items found at the fair for you today.

Have you checked out the Pantone Colour Trends Report for Fall 2014 yet? Based on the New York Fashion Week Spring shows, that feature designers collections for the following Fall, Pantone aim to predict what the key colours will be for the season - and of course,  this in turn influences what we find on the high street, as retailers pick up on the trends. 

Second Life follows just the same trends, and designers like Vikeejeah Xevion of Loovus Dzevavor has become a mistress of working the trends for our virtual fashion world. It's not just about taking the colours and slapping them on any old mesh template - it's about taking the right colours and working them on the right garments that makes Vikee's work outstanding. This dress in Cypress - a smudgy neutral greyish green - is a prime example. It has a classic but throughly modern feel that I love. It's available exclusively at .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week until 22nd September.

I decided to wear it with the new undo from Vanity Hair - the bow is colour change so you can match it exactly to your outfit - or opt for a contrast if you prefer. And this copper and black jewellery set from Zuri is a great complement to the look.

Falling in love with Fall...all over again

As I sit to write this, fresh coffee by my side, the September sun is streaming through the window. Have you noticed how the September sun has a different quality? It glows golden, gently warming, not blazing as it does in high summer. As if it's getting ready to take a rest for the winter. And so my mind turns to Autumn, shorter days, longer nights, leaves turning and falling, blanketing the ground in copper, bronze and gold. And for fashion, surely the most exciting season of all, as we can layer up and accessorise to out hearts content.

I've been working hard with Warm Clarity to design a complete collection for the Autumn. Launched at  .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week last weekend, our Fall14 Collection was inspired by the idea of dramatic opulence. We used a deep, rich palette based on the Pantone Colour Trends for the season, to create a high fashion wardrobe of clothing and accessories to take you from day to evening in style. The Fall14 Collection includes custom rigged mesh boots, made to my design, exclusively for ghee! I'd love it if you could drop by the ghee main store and take a look - you might see something you like!
