The last day of London Fashion week went out with a bang! The Ashish show was all sparkles, sequins & tinsel, however the collection was still wearable for the everyday guy or gal!. For spring Ashish brought glamour into day to day outfits such as tracksuits, baggy pants, jeans & bomber jackets. The vibe was street & comfort, collaborating both these looks together with a sprinkle of 70′s created a cool overall urban look. The 70′s fringe details on many of the looks reflected the main vibe of LFW SS15. The most magical moment of the show had to be our amazing Harry Uzoka opening the show strutting down the runway with that bod on show had the whole audience in a gaze.

Felix Tornquist is shot by legendary photographer David Sims for the October issue of Vogue Hommes International. The 19 year old swedish native who is brand new to the modelling scene as of June this year, started his first season the day after his final school exams. For his first LC:M shows he walked for; Alexander McQueen, Lou Dalton, and Agi&Sam, as well as shooting for i-D online and working with David Sims. A former professional gamer, Felix’s intense gaze, cool ears and natural runway walk all equal fashion gold. We think he’s one to watch…
Inside, however, things are building to a fever pitch as the minutes tick down to showtime. There, in the midst of the swirl, Wendy Rowe is demonstrating the show’s makeup on Burberry Prorsum‘s campaign girl and freshest new face, Malaika Firth. It’s “smooth honey skin, with a wash of tawny eye shadow,” says Rowe of the look she’s creating. “We don’t want it to look like makeup, so where you would normally get a shadow around your eye, that’s where we’re adding the shade.” The effect is glossy, gorgeous, sun-kissed—and while the company’s radiance-boosting Luminous Fluid Base (in Golden Radiance) and Fresh Glow Foundation are no doubt partially responsible for Firth’s glowing skin, she doesn’t exactly need much help.
“Watch this girl—she’s major!” says Rowe, who is patting exactly the right amount of the company’s bright Ruby lipstick onto Firth’s lips to create the impression that she has been snacking on hedgerow raspberries. The Kenyan-born, London-bred model has just been tapped to open the house’s spring 2015 show, and if she is nervous, there is no evidence of it. Having worked for the brand for three years, Firth is—naturally—a Burberry fan. “I love the trench coat,” she says. “I like that it’s an English brand, and I’m from London, so I’m very proud to be opening the show.” The swag’s not bad, either. “The poncho was amazing. It has my initials on it, which is so, so cool,” she says of the monogrammed blanket capes that Burberry Prorsum debuted last season and that became an instant street style hit. “I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long. I’ve walked so many shows,” she says, reflecting on the arrival of her opening moment. Is she anxious? “No. I’m excited,” she says with a laugh. “And I’m quite lucky, I’ve never had a catwalk mishap yet!”
BURBERRY SS15: The most elegant, most anticipated show of the season. The show was fluttering & free flowing, the main themes being flowers, leaves and sheer skirts. The models wore trainers, their hair loose over their shoulders & a classic english red rose lipstick.
In our day and age, where multitasking has become the norm, where we cannot be without our phones for just one day, where we are being bombarded with news, images and “likes” at any moment of the day, it has become increasingly important to acknowledge the fact that what this is and has become, does need a counter movement in order to keep our sanity.
I myself am guilty as charged on all the above, I get off on those little red dots that alarm me that someone out there has “liked” any of my, thousands by now, images on Instagram and Facebook. I am also obsessively checking the celebrity headlines of the Daily Mail, which in itself, I know, is a crime. Read More
