Fashion… The new category

By | Fashion | No Comments

As one of the ‘big four’ fashion capitals, London has major influence over the international fashion scene. Londoners are famous for their risk-taking fashion, edgy confident looks and classic brands. Let’s not forget that from Britain came Vivienne Westwood’s punk rein, Burberry’s classic collections and Kate Moss’ world recognised style.

So as a ‘fashion forward’ nation, as opposed to hearing, ‘what to wear to an event’, I hear more and more the dilemma of ‘I’ve bought a new fantastic outfit but I’m not sure where to wear it?!’  

This new Ambience category aims to provide a ‘go to guide’ of amazing and appropriate places to wear your new fashion looks. Featuring collections from the most prestigious fashion brands, influential fashion bloggers and up and coming fashion designers, this spot is soon to be filled with the best festivals to wear your new boho style, chic city bars to display your tailored bravura and breath-taking event spaces to parade your dream frocks.

So hold tight fashionistas… It’s coming soon!

Salon D’ete was a 1930’s themed pop up venue that ran in the summer months of 2010. Hidden away on Duke Street above the members club ‘L’Equipe Anglaise’, when you entered you embarked upon a secret garden bursting with canopies of ivy, falling beams of hazed light and luscious palm trees. The room depicted a scene from Casablanca with the décor, staff costumes and entertainment all echoing the artistic class and elegance of the 1930’s. Read More
