Not the most exotic of locations, I took the train down to Brighton this weekend, and instead of hanging out in the ever-so-popular city, we decided to go somewhere a little different: Hastings.
Once only known for fairground rides, fish & chips and old-fashioned sweet shops, Hastings is now a hub of gorgeous vintage boutiques and antique shops. Taking a walk towards the Old Town and wandering down George Street and the High Street, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of vintage we found.
Yves Saint Laurent when he said this could have been predicting the rise of vintage fashion. The idea that style is timeless is proven by how much designers and fashions prominent on today’s catwalk are heavily influenced by what’s gone before, as designers turn to previous eras for inspiration. Classics never go out of style. Period. As fashion becomes ever more mainstream and interchangeable, vintage allows the daring fashionista to retain their originality, which is the key to being stylish.
As Fashion Week in New York ends we welcome the very cool vibe London Fashion Week. I sit here in the cold months of autumn to winter only excited for the spring and summer next year to embrace the luxurious nautical, timeless monochromatic and tastefully done prints that I have observed from NYFW.
"Every season is different, the venue reflects the mood of the collection, the girl and the season"

Once again, Fashion surprises us, moving the London Fashion Week from the suggestive and classic Somerset house to Brewer Street Car Park, in the heart of Soho.
Fashion became for everyone , everyday, and while we are waiting for an exciting colourful summer, let us fall in love with the autumn/winter key pieces and get ready to change our closet and prepare ourselves to the cold London!
Sheer, mesh and lace layering is fast becoming a trend on the catwalk as we have seen from NYFW and LFW. The trend exudes edgy, sexy style and is the perfect transition from autumnal layers to cool summer chic. However, it’s not one easy to pull off in many circumstances. So, I’m here to help with a three step guide to get your sheer on!
For Summer Next year, pair your thin, flowing, fabrics with suede!
This Friday at London Fashion week, DAKS showed their SS16 collection and it was as beautifully put together as always.
The main colours used were purple, black, white and brown. During the catwalk to set the scene they played a lovely track that made you feel like you were sitting in Paris, with a glass of whatever you fancy, in a venue that had a glass ceiling so all the daylight flooded in, making the summer feeling even more realistic.
