One of my favourite brands that I saw at the event was ‘Made’ jewellery; a unique, fair-trade brand that you may recognise from Whistles and Topshop! Hand crafted by Artisan Jewellers in Kenya, the designs range from hammered bronze collars (seen in the top picture and available online here) to detailed beaded bags.
Here’s quick post to show off my favourite brands from Day One of Bloggers Fashion Week!
Bloggers Fashion Week has been organised by Bloggers Love, to bring together brands and bloggers in London and the surrounding areas. I was invited to attend as a ‘Very Important Blogger’ (ooh la la!) so headed over to The Penthouse in Leicester Square for the first event of the week; The Summer Garden Tea Party.
We were treated to makeovers from the fabulous ‘Powder Puffs and Pin Curls’, I opted for a subtle smokey eye – nothing too bold to clash with my coral lip! Of course as with all Bloggers Love events there were also some scrummy nibbles, from Spicy Chicken Skewers to Buttercream Cupcakes.
I also adored the range of jewellery from Apache London seen in the images below, featuring a selection of designs using delicate stones such as opals in the earrings directly below, to chunky Swarovski necklaces such as that in the last image.
Following from the Tea Party, we headed downstairs to the Bloggers boutique, where we were able to shop directly from the designers. If the bloggers preferred to swap than shop, Swish & The City were also there organising a blogger swap shop!
I loved these lashes from Model It, designed by the beautiful Alisha White. Vicky was quick to realise that Alisha was in fact a contestant on Britain’s Next Top Model a few seasons ago! The lashes were incredibly natural looking, and the new range is made from mink, with designs ranging from a subtle feminine everyday lash, to chunky bold party lashes!
So that’s my super duper quick round up of the very first Bloggers Fashion Week event – if you haven’t already done so, be sure to sign up to the Bloggers Love events, which happen every few weeks in London 🙂
