It’s been a busy week. Firstly, for all you lovers out there, Valentine’s Day dominated the agenda
I spent mine in the scenic Balearics. It was all about a shared grilled fish platter and Spanish rosé. Although it was chilly, the skies were blue and the sun glistened overhead. No heart-shaped chocolates or ‘two for one steak’ at The Harvester -it was shellfish heaven for us. The advantage was that I managed to fit into my skinny leather Freddys, all day.
For the less romantic amongst us, it was Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday. Whichever way you live out this day, be it for religious reasons, ie Lent, or one for the children, it’s all a bit too calorific. Thankfully, being in Ibiza and Mallorca allowed me to escape the batter, lemon and sugar.
The date also signalled the end of New York Fashion Week and the beginning of London Fashion Week.
Despite being English, Victoria Beckham has only ever showcased her collections in New York. However, as of 2019, she comes home and will show in London.
This week will see the British Designers such as Burberry, Topshop Unique and Henry Holland reveal their upcoming collections, which we’ll be wearing this time next year. Of course, I’ll bring you the very latest news and gossip next week.
In this week’s instalment of Zips It Up we check out the importance of the FROW – the Front Row – during this all-important fashion spell. Plus we check out the new sports range for Generation X by ASOS, perfect for the pub!
And equally exciting this week is the launch of the new Clockwork Orange Jewellery collection, which went on sale yesterday (15th). For those who follow the iconic club events, it’ll be a must-buy.
So, relax and enjoy this week’s Zips It Up.
