Designer Collaboration

As we are all aware that some of the major names on the UK high street are collaborating with designers, to offer us “affordable” versions of their collections. H&M started the trend collaborating with designers in 2004 such as Karl Lagerfield, Stella McCartney, Victor & Rolf, Versace and most recently Marni.

Topshop released there collaboration with Mary Katrantzou to coincide with London Fashion Week, where they showcased funky printed and structured dresses, tops, shirt, trousers and¬†accessory’s. We, like most people, have to shop on a budget so we get excited about designers, we can’t afford, collaborating with high street chains where we shop, but we expect reasonable prices, ¬£350 for a polyester dress in not affordable.

For us designer high street collaborations are starting to loose their appeal. We are looking for quality made, great designed clothing with attention to material, construction and overall detail. When we compare clothes today to vintage pieces, which have already survived years of wear and tear, there really isn’t any comparison to the quality of construction. Buying vintage is not only green but your also getting the best quality and value for money clothing available¬†to us at this moment in time. I am keeping my eye out for the made in UK tags, that sadly, we no longer see in most of our high street garments. A great place to find vintage, with out having to rummage, is ASOS Market Place where there is a wide selection of Menswear and Womenswear.¬†
Happy Shopping!

Style Q&A- Catwalk to High Street!

So after all the excitement of seeing the beautiful collections at London Fashion Week & beyond, we have been inundated (literally) with emails from you guys with questions about re-creating the looks on a budget, so hold on tight here we gooooooooooooooooooo.


Temperley London





The elegance to Temperley’s collection is the beautiful vintage feel they create by taking the extra time and care to produce and make their garments. To recreate the look, on a budget, look out for vintage gems, like we found on Ada’s Attic on Asos Marketplace,¬†https://marketplace.asos.com/listing/tops/hand-beaded-vintage-top/272800, Not only can you find an absolute steal, hand beaded, UK made, Vintage top all for ¬£35! you are also more or less guaranteed to have a different and eye catching outfit. Vintage pieces are also way to make high street pieces more your own. Above we have given you two outfit ideas on how you could wear the same Vintage Top, one is smart suitable for a nice evening out and the other could be for a festival or weekend in the city!¬†
Right were off now to buy that top from Ada’s Attic before you guys do ūüėČ

The king…is….a GIRL!

Here¬†are a few¬†shots¬†from the shoot we did a few weeks ago… the concept it taking all the male icons and putting our twist on it…Using it as inspiration and re-creating them… This is just one of many that we have planned…Who do you think will be next?
