FRONT ROW SEAT TO FASHION WEEK

The biggest events on the fashion calendar is here again - the fashion month has kicked off already in New York, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. So you are not a celebrity guest, a buyer or press but still want to have a front row view of the shows first hand as these guest? Well you can, with live streaming of every show you too can see the new seasons collection SS15 from the comfort of your home, on your sofa or bed or on a lovely park bench while tucking into some lovely sushi; how I spend my Friday afternoons. I pack lunches for work through out the week except Friday's. 'Eat Out Fridays' hopefully I'll be enjoying some sushi and the show(s) on my lunch break. I'm usually interested in a hand-full of the shows, I check the time table and make sure I don't miss them. 

So trust me you are not missing out really not being there. No rushing around, no stress, painful feet, on your second or third or whatever number row stretching out your neck to get a proper view. I was at the  East London Fashion Show last Friday on second row which was fine to begin with but after a mini break there had been a mini switch in positions and as a result I had this lovely lady's really tall,stiff hair in my face which caused me to miss some parts of the show. Nevertheless I love the atmosphere the energy around fashion shows.

ZARA'S SISTER


Stradivarius SS14 Campaign

Zara clothing has become a staple for us all, the self-proclaimed fashionista, the cooperate lady who doesn't think she is into fashion, yet is looking super stylish/trendy/fashionable all the time. I am yet to meet someone who doesn't like Zara. When I ask people what their favourite shops are Zara is always somewhere on the list. Even when these people prefer to shop at Chanel, Dior, their choice of high-street brand to mix and match with is likely Zara. So I am sure there are many who are excited as I am about the news of their younger sister brand Stradivarius that will soon be opening in the UK - their first store will be in Westfield Shopping Centre in Stratford London.

It's similar to Zara basic and more affordable with prices not costing more that £40 which is good for Trafaluc.
