Right it was a busy week in fashion and if you happened to miss anything, here is my round up of fashion news!
David Koma gets a new job!
Yep, in his own right David Koma is some awesome designer and I have been at many of his shows over the last few years in London, but he is taking on a new challenge and has been announced as the new Creative Director at Mugler! I know, how amazing is that! To date, Nicola Formichetti was at the helm however left in April, and left a seat empty at the Parisien fashion house until now. I can’t wait to see what happens in their future collections!

BFC names NEWGEN recipients for 2014
Oh this kind of fashion news I love! The BFC have just announced who will benefit from the Topshop sponsored funding. Marques’Almeida, 1205, Lucas Nascimento and Simone Rocha will receive the NEWGEN sponsored by Topshop catwalk sponsorship for autumn/winter 2014. Claire Barrow and Danielle Romeril (G’wan Ireland!) have been awarded exhibition sponsorship, while Ryan Lo receives the presentation sponsorship. How amazing to see two Irish designers nominated for this. Roll on fashion week! Read all about London Fashion Week here.
Yeah she doesn’t need any other tag line, she has just been the Wow in X factor over the last few months which hit a peak this weekend with her jaw dropping gowns. From the red Ziad Nakad gown on Saturday night’s opening to the incredible gold Dennis Kolpodinos (you might know his names from many of Beyoncé’s amazing on stages ensembles) there is no doubt she is a fashion force to be reckoned with. And I have to give it her for wearing designers which are relatively unknown to the masses (including me on occasion). Let’s hope she continues this golden streak in 2014.
