It's that time of year again - well it comes around every six months and takes over for less than a week and then disappears again. What am I talking about? London Fashion Week that's what!
It's a long time since I have attended the shows as a fashion Ed. But recently we have been hosting a suite for tired fashion and beauty bloggers at One Aldwych, a hotel just over the road from the main event. Last night we partnered with New Look for an opening night party with our lovely Handpicked Media bloggers where plenty of wine was quaffed, nails were painted using on trend varnishes from Gold by Giles (exclusive make-up collection for New Look by Giles Deacon) and the Autumn/Winter collection from New Look was um-ed and aaahhh-ed over by all who attended.
I am always surprised by New Look and although it's often a bit too young for me (who am I kidding most of it is too young for me) there are some great pieces at the most fantastic prices. And this year's A/W collection is no exception. There are great shapes for coats and jackets, some lovely jewellery that's almost deco inspired, and some towering shoes beloved of both my daughters.
It's fun fashion and I must admit I am particularly impressed with the Gold by Giles make-up range which has a wide range of colours and is great quality - and for £2.99 for a varnish it really can't be beaten.
Hope this will give you a flavour of last night with a great little video made by our friends at New Look...
