London Fashion Week Roundup here I come!  When AJ, editor-in-chief of Ethical Hedonist asked me to do a round up of LFW for EH I couldn’t contain my excitement! I couldn’t wait to begin my mission to sniff out the hottest new talents working to the highest standards at the SS14 LFW exhibition. Off I went on a Sunday afternoon to a drizzly Somerset House, with a cunning plan to methodically trawl the corridors and hunt down the next Erdem, Alexander McQueen and Stephen Jones. So fasten your seatbelts for a couturier’s birdseye view of talented, fashion conscious Britain.

One of my absolute favourite discoveries was Emma Yeo and her incredible hand made headpieces.

There was an overwhelming amount of dazzling Jewellery. I adored these fab pieces from Niza Huang and Jo Hayes Ward made in their studios in the UK.

Eager to find a future fashion superstar designer to be awed by – I poked into a few of the smaller rooms. There I found old favourite Beautiful Soul with their blooming lovely new collection of signature prints.

Next door I found two fab designers, Mich Dulche’s fun hats, as modelled by moi and delightful and surprisingly sturdy bags and purses by Bottletop.

Eventually, I just had to kiss, kiss LFW adieu, and returned home to focus before our own Atelier Tammam LFW showcase the next day.  I’m a British couturier, in love with retro allure and ladylike tailoring – just the thing for those fabulous Downton Abbey girls, Lady Mary and Lady Edith.

 

Yours in LFW Hedonism
