Here’s a mood board that sums up my passions and influences… I’m a tad shoe obsessed and have adored Christian Louboutin and his shoes from the moment i set eyes on the cheeky red sole.. These are shoes that speak for themselves making a women feel sexy and elegant, what more could a girl ask for? I’m really fascinated by underwear and believe that wearing beautiful underwear everyday and not just on special occasions is a must for feeling fantastic. Ive included a sketch by Jean Paul Gautier for La Perla here, just gorgeous! I live for fashion! So many designers so little space but I’ve included Marchesa and Zac Posen here. Marchesa inspire me alot, the two English designers make dresses for women to feel beautiful in and that they sure do. Their designs are always show stopping with amazing detail. I admire Zac Posen’s fearless approach to fashion, extrovert evening wear and beautiful tailoring.
He has made a real impact coming onto the scene at the tender age of 21 and since has made the industry sit up and take notice. A real success story for any budding young designer and fashion lover alike. The Mulberry Alexa handbag (shown here in red) was an instant classic last season, Alexa Chung is one lucky lady to have inspired that creation and to have one in every colour and size! Jealous much?! Marc Jacobs, Luella, Zuhair Murhad, Chanel, Valentino are amongst my other favouriteÂ fashion housesÂ with Erdem, Ellie Saab and Burberry Prorsum all making a great impression in recent seasons.Â IÂ grew up watching old movies and that’s really where my love of clothes began.
Marilyn Monroe was mesmerising to my young self. The ultimate woman, bomb-shell and glamour icon of her time and still a retro influence today.
Ive also included Coco Chanel and Brigitte Bardot here, two such strong and inspirational women. A strong sense of character and determination to succeed is somethingÂ to look up to and which paid off for these ladies. Seen echoed today in Coco’s legacy, Chanel which is an iconic and revered brand. Bardot in her day, to me epitomised style and flair and i love everything about her look and it influences me daily. Rachel BilsonÂ is my contemperory celebrity icon as her style is so interesting and diverse and she isÂ my go to celeb as we have similar-ish frame and body type, i think everybody should have a look-to celeb! And that’s me! Marie, Mimi, Mk, all of which i may be referred to here (and alot more besides!) xox
