Clothes Show Live 2014 – Birmingham

Clothes Show Live 2014 – Birmingham



Hi Guys,


My weekend has been major packed, thankfully, God has shown his mercies and made issues dissolve like aint nothing getting in between His daughter’s plans and their fulfilment

Did this huge shoot today with the fashion sibling, Lanre and it went really well. My friend Moji totally came through as well. Today was totally blessed.

So last weekend, I was in Birmingham with my friend, Ify for the annual Clothes Show Live event. She won the tickets for this show from some draw she partook in.

The Clothes Show Live was debuted as a television show in 1986 and from 1989 become an extremely successful live event. During these years, some of the most famous bands including the Spice Girls, 5ive and Boyzone have performed. 
Also, successful models and presenters including Holly Willoughby, Vernon Kay and Cat Deeley were spotted by model scouts at the show during the 90s.

As always, it was held at The NEC in Brum. We got into town pretty early, about 3 hours before our event so we had time to look around, have breakfast and window shop at the Wordpay Duty Free section. 




After breakfast we chilled, had several laughs..


and a billion phone calls by the phone mistress..


She be feeling cute..

We eventually changed and went in for the Live Event and oh boy! It was amazeballs and so inspiring. Loved every second. Made some videos as well.

After the show, we went into the massive shopping arena and got our lives..




Jumpsuit: Rare London.. get similar here.
Shoes: Aldo.. get similar here.
Purse: TKmaxx
Style: Chic


Shopped till I literally dropped. Hahaha, every gift bag was as a result of a flipping deal though.. Spend £10 get like a million gifts. There were vintage retailers and of course that was my fav section.
Asos Market Place was well represented too.



Grabbed a couple selfies while shopping..





Met the eccentric Dazzle and Jolt.


Just a few pic stitches


The show came t an end and we headed back to London.


That’s all folks..

Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” – Coco Chanel

BFA2014 – British Fashion Awards, 2014.

BFA2014 – British Fashion Awards, 2014.



Hi Guys,


As promised, this post would be about the concluded British Fashion Awards (BFS) I attended last week. It was held at the London Coliseum. I went with my fashion sibling, Lanre and we queued outside for about 45 minutes before one of the officials randomly looked at our tickets and said we weren’t even supposed to be on the line. UGH!!! Imagine.. 



At least we got around to getting some decent photos anyway. So yes guys, that how I missed my opportunity with red carpet pictures with the likes of Rihanna and Naomi Campbell. LOL!

Stole some quick shots on our way inside..

We eventually got in, we had lovely goody bags on our seats, the VIPs had finished with their dinner and the show started some 20 minutes later.
 The goody bag and my 3D purse..



Lol, fast forward to when I got home.. the contents on the goody-bag..


The event was very well organised and timed with Edward Enninful clutching the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator. Naomi presented this award to him and I was so engrossed listening to what she was saying to & about him that I didn’t recognise the person standing by her until Edward called their names while taking them and said “Rihanna”. 
She looked so dope in this blazer dress Lanre was already coveting.

My favourite winner of the night was Nicolas Ghesquière for Louis Vuitton.. Dude clutched two awards that night; International Designer and Creative Campaign.
Erdem was also a fav of mine.. his speech was proper sweet.

Before I go on ranting, let me share the list of the night’s winners..

Chanel’s Metiers d’Art Paris Salzburg and Victoria Secret Fashion Shows 2014

Chanel’s Metiers d’Art Paris Salzburg and Victoria Secret Fashion Shows 2014




Hi guys, 


On this post I am basically going to share pictures from both these shows (Chanel’s Metiers d’Art Paris Saltzburg and Victoria Secret Fashion Show) which tok place on the same day 02 December, 2014 in France and England respectively.

The Chanel Metiers d’Art show is a prestigious annual event that takes place in amazing locations with just a select few guests invited.

Models like Stella Tennant, Lara Stone, Lindsey Wilson and Cara Delavigne all walked the runway.
This year’s collection featured textures like the obligatory tweed, lace, cashmere and leathering dark red, white, navy blue and black hues.

See pictures..


 




Have you see the new Chanel Film by Karl Lagerfeld? Click here to watch..

Here are some photos of scenes from the film;





The annual Victoria Secret Fashion Show is one every model dies to partake in. Compared to other fashions where its mostly about the designer’s pieces and collection, the VSFashion Show is mostly about these models personalities. It always gives off this fun vibe. 

Although the major models are donned in bras as expensive as $2m, the shows are always really mental and beautiful.


Some pre-show pictures..





See some of my fav pictures from the 2014 show..





Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Arianna Grande graced the occasion with their performances..



Doesn’t this show look like major fun and self expression?



That’s all folks.. make sure you check out our Facebook page as there are loads of bits and bops on there as well as full version of videos..

My next post would feature my wedding look from this past weekend as well as looks from the British Fashion Awards, nominees and winners at the BFA 2014.

Have a great rest-of-the-week.. Thank you so much for stopping by.
