Backstage snaps

Here are some backstage snaps of last night shows. Fi and I had a lot of fun working together and caught up with other shop friends and drank maybe a little too much wine. Note to self white wine+empty stomach= confusion over running order and makes backstage work at more challenging. Have a good weekend! x

Be Inspired Fashion Show

I have previously mentioned in the blog yesterday that we are taking party in a fashion show to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Charity tonight at the Assembly rooms. It is a very exciting night for Fifi who will be showcasing some of here best selling shift dresses and a new design that even I have not seen yet. She has been busy on the sewing machine for the last 24hrs.
I promise to get snap happy with ym camera for those who wil miss the show and post them up for you tomorrow. This show we have decided to mix up the designers to show off the vast array of designs and designers we currently have in store. In the mix will be those super soft leather jackets by Nonchalant, Faye hackers silk & merino wool dresses, Rowanjoy's skirts and capes, silk underwear by Littlesisterlucy and recent ECA graduate Louise Holsgrove. If your attending the show you are in for a treat.
Hope to see you there!
The photo is a quick snap and sneak preview of last nights fittings I did in preparation for the show. In the pic, Nonchalant Leather Jacket and Fifi shift with hand illustrated design by Kate Mackay.

Vintage photoshoot

For years we have worked along with Stolen Model Agency lending clothes for fashion shows and photoshoots. We are always happy to lend clothing for photographers to do test shoot for the models in return for some pretty pics of our clothing, vintage or designer, which we can then use for little bits of PR and for you to see our lovely things . These two recently shot classic pictures were taken recently using some of our latest hand picked vintage modelled by Athene from Stolen and photographer Christina Carra Caso.

Raising money for Cystic Fibrosis this Thursday

For those who love a good fashion show we are taking part in a charity show this Thursday 28th October, at the Assembly Rooms on George Street to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
We will be showcasing some of our best A/W collections along with other independent stores, such as Goodstead, Kakao by K, Covet and 21st Century Kilts.
The show doors open at 7pm and starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are £15 and all profits go to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Which I think you will a greed is a very worthy cause.

Super Cute Capes by Ruth Alexander

It is definitely all about Capes this A/W10. A new skilled designer entered the showroom recently. Her name is Ruth Alexander and I think you will agree that she has an eye for mixing colours, vintage fabrics, tweeds and trims. These cheeky little capes are perfect for bringing some colour and warmth into that brisk autumnal day!

Winter Capes by Rowanjoy

Rowanjoy capes are the fastest selling garment in the showroom for a while! She has definitely hit the right stitch this winter with her new on trend capes! These classically designed capes are one size, and with the sleeve and belt they are great figure flatterers. Rowanjoy's signature style and skill of beautifully mixing vintage fabrics makes these capes individual. Of course every one is a one off and of the highest fabric quality due to her hand picked selection of quality wool & cashmere mix fabric.
These photos are a selection of of the collection so far. We only have the green check cape left currently in store. I did see her enter the studio this morning laden with some more great wool & tweed collection of fabric so watch this space or pop in store for more!
