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…
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!!!!
WHEN THE CRYSTAL CRACKED
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!
