Welcome to another instalment of Amanda Zips It Up. This week has all been about London Fashion Week, showcasing everything for S/S ’19.
I went along to the grandiose Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden to see a bunch of catwalk shows, produced by new independent men’s and womenswear designers.
With huge thanks to my friend and fellow fashionista Nicole Ivison Hatch for getting us VIP FROW (that’s front row) seats at Sunday’s hottest show in town.
Whilst sipping glasses of wine costing £10 appropriately slowly, we viewed collections by designers such as Louise Clark Design, John Hererra, Maddy Stringer, Rose Red Couture, Geo Mac, No Fixed Abodeand House of Ra, amongst others. But we were there to see the highlight of the evening – A STAR IS BORN– a fabulous label by Indian designer Sucheta Shetty Rodrigues– a close friend of Nicole’s.
Here are a few snaps from the evening.
And I also want to mention another frienda, the talented artist Davey Brown,who recently painted a cool black & white portrait of my husband Jules. Davey has ventured into fashion, producing these very cool Acid House smiley tees, featuring superstar DJs from the past 20 years.
They’re available in all sizes and cost £19.99 plus postage, via PayPal. Please contact me if you need more details.
Onto this week, and of course we delve deeper into the designers at LFW, including Alexa Chung,plus a deeper look at the diversity of the catwalk models I witnessed at the shows.
