House of Maffia & House of Murray | London Fashion Week Escapades

House of Maffia’s Selina and Lina joined forces with Julie-Ann Murray of House of Murray this London Fashion Week season. Lina started the afternoon by attending the Falguni & Shane Peacock show at ON|OFF. Selina joined the crew over at the Jasper Garvida show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout where we had the privilege of jumping the queue and sitting on the second row. We rounded off the evening by traveling east to the Christopher Beales presentation and partied the night away in VIP at the Falguni & Shane Peacock after-party …

Read on for Julie-Ann’s review on the events…


High glamour Rock n Roll chic at the star-studded Falguni & Shane Peacock show

A darkly elegant collection from the Rock n Roll duo

Striking feather and shear evening gowns juxtaposed with dominatrix leather and embellished studding created an edgy yet elegant story of high lux couture along with their signature prints for their cool AW11 show.

It was lovely to catch up with the team at the after show party too!!!

LE BASIE (The Kiss)

Jasper Garvida AW11 at Vaxhall Fashion Scout

Effortless draping and peep hole ‘key’ prints gave us an insight into Jaspers more relaxed mood this season with a collection of refreshingly calm, oriental inspired minimalism. Armour-like embellished gowns and accessories gave an edge to the unusually light story which was much less extravagant than previous seasons.

Jaspers hit his stride!

Thanks for the mention Jasper!!!!



Having worked behind the scenes in the fashion industry for the last 15 years, helping the likes of Lee McQueen and Matthew Williamson to create their catwalk collections, the talented and highly skilled Christopher Beales is finally emerging from the cracks and has presented a magnificent array of styles for his latest exhibition ‘When the Crystal Cracked’ presented by the team at Forward PR.

To anyone who knows him, Christopher is a delightful, talented designer and costumier who’s combined passion, skill and love of his art will no doubt propel him to the very top of his art!

We have only just begun to see what this magical young man can create!

With HOM Director Lisa Maffia, Far East Movement & Wretch 32  in the building it was bound to be a night to remember.

Basso and Brooke: Spring/Summer 2011

One of the most eagerly awaited shows of the season, designer duo Basso and Brooke have once again captured the minds and hearts of their adoring fashionista fans with yet another beautifully dynamic S/S line.

The focal point of this collection, it appears, is an artful blend of contrasting yet exhilaratingly well-put together prints; pastel florals (springtime soon, how lovely!) next to bold black and white block colours make for an intriguing look into an anticipatory summer filled with garden parties and romantic candlelit dinners (the scene: an alfresco dine-out with scented lavender and sweet natured fireflies).

The most interesting (and soon-to-be well sought after) item of the season is undoubtedly Basso and Brooke’s contribution to warm weather outerwear; practical, lightweight and of course, aesthetically pleasing to the ardent eye of the ever-scrutinising stylista, these print blazer jackets are a strong finishing touch to a discreet summer ensemble.

In addition to its sharp yet feminine prints, A-line hems provide an extra delightful girlish touch to an otherwise formal and grown-up collective. For an outfit with a sexier edge, the Basso and Brooke team bring us a low cut silken jumpsuit.

High waisted saloon trousers with a slightly masculine edge worn with heels are also decadent occasion worthy choice (fashionable work wear perhaps? Watch out for jealous colleagues!).
