Bloggers Fashion Week | Day 2

A little look at Day 2 of Bloggers Fashion Week...

Meeting the lovely ladies from Fever London HQ:

The first VIB activity that day was called 'Bloggers Pick.' We were put into small groups and were given a model to style using clothes and accessories from a small selection of lovely brands. First up we decided to visit the lovely ladies at Fever London. I'm already a fan of this brand so couldn't wait to have a look through the rail of blogger favourites from their AW14 collection that they had brought along with them:

I love this look - so simple yet so chic. The gem detail along the neckline of the top really elevates the whole look. A great little daytime outfit :)

This dress is an absolute beauty! Firstly it is such a perfect dress for the colder weather as it is nice and thick, the fabric is also lovely and soft too. Secondly, the fit and flare shape of the dress casts the most divine silhouette - look how fabulous our model's waist looks! 

So there you go, that's how to stay warm and look good at the same time - perfection!

Fever London was my favourite brand that day - fantastic garments and really lovely people, it was an absolute pleasure meeting Lauren and Mary from Fever HQ.

Styling our model in a beautiful couture gown from Vania-Couture:

Next we styled our model in one last look, this time opting for a beautiful couture gown from Vania-Couture. I was told that their bespoke handmade dresses costs thousands of pounds, so when it came to choosing one to style our model in I felt really awkward and just sort of stood back (yep, far back!!) and let the other girls in my group get on with it. I was way too scared to touch any of the dresses let alone look at them lol... Anyway the other girls in my group did a fantastic job of picking the right dress for our model - check it out:

Such a stunning dress isn't it?! I think that's it safe to say that this dress was made for our model!

The model's hair and makeup was fantastic and worked perfectly with all of the looks that we went for. 

Shout-outs:
Before I forget, I want to give a some special shout-out to some of the lovely bloggers and fellow VIBs that I met over the course of my whole three days at Bloggers Fashion Week: Beth, Vicky, Kiran, Donalyn and Monica (apologies if I've missed anyone off!). They're all wonderful and friendly girlies so do check out their blogs.

Bloggers Fashion Week | Day 1

Check out what I got up to on Day 1 of Bloggers Fashion Week...

1. Brand display - Capturelove caps:

Us lucky VIBs were kindly gifted with one of Capturelove's fabulous caps. I was given the fabulous 'Passion' cap pictured below:

It's such a gorgeous cap isn't it?
The combination of satin fabric and stunning bright hues make this cap a real head-turner.

2. I was a VIB (Very Important blogger), so like the other VIBs I had my own front row seat for the fashion show. We were also kindly given a VIB goody bag which was perched on top of our chairs.

3. The event was attended by several reality TV stars such as Imogen Leaver from Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model - as pictured above. To be honest I don't watch much TV so didn't have a clue who half of the 'celeb' attendees were but they seemed to be friendly enough.

4. Delicious gourmet cupcakes by Miss Cupcakes who use the finest and freshest ingredients to create their beautiful handmade cakes.

5. The brands featured in the fashion show that evening were Didi's Boutique (as pictured) and Rocco Fashion.

6. & 7. The venue, The Penthouse in Leicester Square offered the most breathtaking views of Central London which I couldn't stop gazing at and photographing.

There were so many top brands showcasing their products at the event, a couple of my faves are pictured below:


"Major London 05 is a womenswear and menswear fashion label. Sisters Nav and Gurpreet pair up to create a luxury brand consisting of their own unique prints and styles. catering for the daring and fashionable, their collections inspired by urban sportswear and tailoring."

I really love the label's bold hip-hop-inspired designs. One of the sisters had the most awesome shoes on that I just had to take a picture as you can see above. 


"Beauty Works is the leading brand of luxury professional hair extensions, clip in hair extension products and on trend hair accessories for women and girls."
