To Celebrate supporting 10 years of British fashion Topshop have put together a limited edition selection of collaboration t-shirts. £7 from the sale of these will go directly to Centerpoint, a charity dedicated to giving homeless young people a future. Working alongside Newgen which is a fab sponsorship scheme based in London which Topshop is supporting. This scheme helps up and coming designers giving them a chance to get time with mentors, including advice and info into making and selling clothes for top stores worldwide. Designers in the collaborations so far include...Jonathan Saunders, Emma Cook, Mary Katrantzou, Michael Van Der Ham, Meadham Kirchoff, Gareth Pugh and many more including my favourite...Erdem!!

Mary Katrantzou #LFW

Pics from
Love, love, LOVE this fab AW12 collection by Mary Katrantzou which made an appearance yesterday at London Fashion Week. The eye-catching bold over-sized prints and colour blocking draws you in with an abstract feel, moving on from her previous season. I love the mix of tough looking structured pieces along with the softer flowing silks and chiffons. Check the LFW webiste for more info/catwalk videos.
 Already looking forward to the next collection! <3

After supporting emerging designers for the past 10 years Topshop has seen another exciting collaboration this time with Mary Karantzou who has already amazed the crowds of LFW.
 This nine-piece capsule collection for Topshop came into stores on Friday (17th) and was NOT to be missed. Inspired by English country gardens, full of bright colours and bold prints not to mention the amazing silhouettes!! With prices starting from £60 this fab collection didn't last long...only the scarfs are left online at Topshop <3 I only managed to get my hands on one of the tote bags but this was enough to get a close up of the FAB prints....LOVE! <3

Spring Fashion Show Manchester

This was the third annual 'Spring Fashion Show' held at the Pitcher & Piano...Deansgate Locks Manchester. Giving the chance for up and coming designers/models/make up artists etc to make themselves known. A great opportunity for emerging talent across Manchester. The Spring Fashion Show was started by producer and designer Victoria Rosso, who also produces the successful 'End of Summer Fashion Show' in Leeds...may have to get some tickets for this one too!! The designers nominated include...

I love that this collection came together through friendship...two friends working together to create 'laid-back luxurious style' It has a great bohemian feel about it, mixed with the bright prints giving a bold edge.

With a message of 'You Can't Control me' it's defo one to push some boundaries. With garments made from liquid latex...a powerful statement collection.

A collection based on 'African and Japanese inspired themes with an eclectic mix of styles' Colourful prints/graphics along with a modern urban look.

A graduate from Northumbria University with a collection inspired by the fourties and fifties. Using a 'zero-waste' concept to pattern this collection! <3

'50's ladylike charm, a sinister gothic twist with sultry burlesque styling and kitch glamour to create a unique, directional style. To be disturbing...but oh so pretty' They also sell popular meswear range Bang Bang Scribble.

Vintage prints and sixties influences...tea dresses, high waisted shorts and sun-dresses. I love this collection! <3

The 'Spring Fashion Show 2012' WINNER!! An ethical fashion brand specializing in sustainable women's wear. Creating on off hand crafted knits...LOVE the bags!!

A heritage menswear collection with tweeds, faux fur coats, checks and bold colours.

The collection includes fab hand dyed and digitally printed fabrics embellished with studs and swarovski crystals. Love love!! <3
