One of my personal favourite designers, Tex Saverio from Indonesia, is gearing up to showcase his latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2014. This marks his second season showing Ready-To-Wear on the Paris Fashion Week off-schedule. A year ago, Saverio’s eponymous label was made a part of a joint program between London College of Fashion and Indonesia Fashion Forward. The result of which was the creation of Saverio’s first official ready-to-wear collection, only nine months later, launching last October for Spring/Summer 2014.
Known mainly for his outlandish and beautifully avant-garde creations, this collaboration shows Saverio’s capability to translate his innovative designs into ready-to-wear products, fit for western consumers.

You may not have specifically heard the name “Tex Saverio” but I’m sure that a lot of you will have seen his work. That exquisite wedding gown worn by Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games? That’s Saverio’s. Having been a fan of his for almost three years now, I can’t wait to see what Autumn/Winter 2014 brings. Listen out for Tex Saverio, you’ll be hearing his name more and more, I’m sure of it. Stay tuned on the blog for updates on the Tex Saverio A/W 2014 collection!

NOTHING LIKE A GOOD OL’ PINTEREST BROWSE TO MAKE A GAL FEEL BETTER.

So I haven’t been feeling well for the past week (having MAJOR girly issues… Say no more) and whenever I’m feeling down and low or ill and in need of a pick-me-up I always turn to Pinterest. Well in all honesty I turn to Pinterest whenever I’m feeling anything, but illness in particular is a good excuse for some down-time and therefore a good ol’ all night Pinterest sesh. So here is my (extra long) Pinterest post for you, all of which are photos that help add a spring to my step and a smile to my face. Enjoy! Follow me on Pinterest HERE.

CLOTHES SHOW LIVE – YOUNG BLOGGER OF THE YEAR COMPETITION ENTRY 2011

So in November last year, I entered the annual Young Blogger of the Year competition comissioned by Clothes Show Live. The competition title this year was “The top fashion moment of 2011” and we only had 200 words.
I wanted to choose a fashion moment that wasn’t necessarily the most obvious choice. The obvious being that little known (now Duchess) Kate Middleton in that sort-of famous gown designed by that sort-of famous designer Sarah Burton at the sort-of successful and infamous fashion house, Alexander McQueen. Of course, this is me attempting humour and not being so stupid. Well, I hope.
Anyway, below is the blog post, I actually got into the top 5 finalists in the country, so I guess it wasn’t half bad.

The top fashion moment of 2011 – ONE OF 5 FINALISTS.

Pretzel, cat flap, turkey twizzler, toilet seat. If you hadn’t guessed the item of headwear that I’m describing by now, then you were clearly in a coma for the whole of May, June… July… August… (And still now). It’s Princess Beatrice’s Royal Wedding hat of course! The Philip Treacy-designed creation has been possibly THE most talked about hat in, well dare I say forever? However, I’m not here writing about the “catastrophe” to add to the negative headlines. I see the creation as a moment of fashion-rebellion, something in which we all could take note of. Everyone’s perception of beauty is different. Just because something is different and not typically mainstream, doesn’t mean it’s “ugly”. I feel the amount of unnecessary media-bullying that Beatrice received was uncalled for. Going one step further was a Facebook page called: ‘Princess Beatrice’s Ridiculous Wedding Hat’. But then I guess, you know you’ve made it when you have a dedicated Facebook page, so perhaps the hat in question is secretly proud. And so it should be, I’d be proud. However, it’s not all bad. The infamous hat sold for £80,000 all for children’s charities. So I guess Bea won that media battle after all.

(As one of the five finalists, I attended the Clothes Show Live on 6th December 2011)
