Preparing for London Fashion Week!

Preparing for London Fashion Week!

It’s that time of the year again. New York is well underway, and on Friday 20th February all eyes turn to London. I love London Fashion Week; it’s exciting off the catwalk as well as on. Street style is a-plenty, and the race for tickets draws to a close for lucky press and buyers who get to see next season’s wares first hand. Thanks to the medium of technology, it’s not just limited to press anymore. Everyone can see shows…

Maison Martin Margiela at thecorner.com

Fashion needs to be kept simple and yet contemporary and no one makes this concept work more than Maison Martin Margiela. It has to be a fashion week show that I long to attend. Take the t-shirt for example. Say a black one for the purpose of illustration. What do you imagine? Yep, you got it. Same as me. Round neck, short sleeve, lightweight jersey, ill fitting (for the most part). But now if I imagine a t-shirt from MMM,…

So fashion week has me thinking straight ahead to next Spring, when we can get back to neon colours (well colour) and lighter fabrics. So if you are anyway like me and like planning for the future, and that includes your wardrobe, you will drool over these. Casadei have the most amazing collection of shoes for next season which underpin everything a shoe should represent, feminity and sexiness! Creative Director,  Cesare Casadei says of the collection, “I have been thinking non-stop…

A SHADED VIEW ON FASHION FILM

A SHADED VIEW ON FASHION FILM

If I was going to Paris Fashion Week, this is something I would check out. Fashion and film are first cousins and the festival titled, “A Shaded View On Fashion Film”, aka ASVOFF, explores the varying talent from film makers to artists, to photographers and designers, through the medium of film. The three day festival takes you on a cinematic journey of 30 second short films which feature some of the world’s most renowned designers and celeb names, Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain,…

I got the keys

I got the keys

I have been looking around for some accessory ideas to take with me to London Fashion Week and today this very cool piece from Accessorize (€20) caught my eye. With layers of keys in all styles, I reckon this could be a funky piece over a t-shirt and finished off with black leather jacket. And speaking of that, I put a call out on twitter yesterday for suggestions on where to get my hands said jacket and I was overwhelmed…

The Look Show blogger!

Who am I???? My two blogs, styleisle.ie and blog.styleisle.ie started in January 2010 and in the short time since it’s birth, my blog has not only given me hours of pleasure through writing, researching and editing, but the tool I needed to channel this passion I had for creativity. I started the blog being completely ignorant of web design, but educated in style. I began modelling at 17 and threw myself into the world of fashion. After college I set…

Monsoon has you dressed

Monsoon has you dressed

I’m currently planning my summer wardrobe. I know, why am I doing this in July? Well I am taking September off for some R&R and of course to go to London Fashion Week so I am trawling through sales to find the last little bits and pieces I need.   But I did just find this fab maxi from Monsoon, called the Jade dress. With horizontal stripes (summer trend #1) and the longer length (summer trend #2), I think this…

Giles, Jessica and Terry team up with Mercedes

Mercedes-Benz have teamed up with fashion heavyweights Terry Richardson and Giles Deacon to bring you an exclusive campaign featuring Jessica Stam, which was launched at Berlin Fashion Week.

Of the campaign Anders Sundt Jensen, Vice President Brand Communications Mercedes-Benz Cars says: We came up with the theme of ‘accelerate the pulse’ for Mercedes-Benz’s Spring/Summer 2012 fashion commitment; Terry Richardson has created a truly successful…
