When I heard that Fashion Illustrator Megan Hess was in town to Launch her new book at a private preview with Designer Amishi London I decided late one afternoon I would take a detour as I made my way into London’s West End in between my Press Appointments to attend the Launch of acclaimed Fashion Illustrator Megan Hess latest book Elegance The Beauty of  French Fashion

Megan Hess Artistic work has been  commissioned by International Fashion Houses Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Vogue, Chopard, Tiffany & more

As soon as I received the invite I just could not help feel excited to preview Megan’s latest work sketching an exclusive fashion illustration for Fashion Designer Amishi Dhanuka and I can see why they choose Annabels. The elegance of the Flower Room inside the private members club was the perfect setting to host the most delightful afternoon tea and cocktail party to celebrate the new artistic collaboration between style illustrator and fashion house.

For those of you who are not familiar with Megan’s work she has worked for numerous international luxury fashion house all over the world. Her clientele includes Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Fendi, Tiffany & Co, Vogue, Chopard and recently Amishi London.

It was so great to see up close the amazing work showcased by two talented individuals Amishi and Megan and celebrate their latest work in an intimate setting which made the experience much more personal to meet and greet them both was a pleasure.

 

 

 

I love all things style related from style sketches to luxury fashion and reminisce those days during my fashion course where learning to draw and present fashion sketches in all types of media from hand drawn techniques to using digital technology to create a unique style.

For me it was an artistic process to showcase the clothes and emphasis the collection the best way possible and appreciate true beauty as style the same way photography captures moments as movement to tell a story.

The book from cover to cover shows the most beautiful drawings illustrated by Megan and exclusive collaborations with internationally acclaimed fashion and luxury houses which would make the perfect addition to my coffee table to admire over and over again. There is also another book in the series named Italian Fashion which is worth checking out also for your favourite Italian brands to covet.

Viewing Megan’s latest book French Fashion is a remarkable work of art and it’s definitely one I will put on my Christmas Wish List to own at home and cherish for style inspiration which kind of reminds me of what I love to do best go shopping or window shopping and you know Paris would be the ideal place for that……

As you maybe aware it’s almost time for Halloween as the first thing that comes to mind is ‘what’s you’re favourite scary movie’ or in this case it’s food and snack ideas to eat while celebrating All Hallow’s Eve the day of the dead in many different cultures around the world.

Be Scared or Prepared this Halloween with Swizzels

Halloween falls on the 31st of October where both kids and adults of all ages will partake in the fun activities such as Trick or Treating, wearing sometimes silly but amusing costumes and attending friends Halloween Parties. Some of my most fond memories growing up were eating sweets and staying up late on Halloween watching cult Horror Genre Classics such as The Halloween Movie Franchise, Friday 13th to Nightmare on Elm Street if you fancied staying in to celebrate with fun food bits and take out delivery food.

But, whether you choose to stay in or not don’t forget to have some snacks at hand to last you til the end of the movie or the Halloween party for those of you that are Celebrating the end of this month. Halloween party food often consist of fun sweet treats and other Halloween themed food but I wanted to re-kindle what was the most popular sweets I reminisce from my childhood growing up before pic’n mix. In fact some of my most favourite sweets were often found in glass jars of my local news agent. In case you’re wondering my choice would be Swizzels from their drumstick lolly’s to refreshers and who could forget the love hearts are still an absolute British classic that’s been around since 1929.

 

With reference to the un-dead when ghouls and ghost come back to earth on Halloween, my love for Swizzel sweets will never die, because these taste just sooo good especially at parties when I attended recently the Swizzel’s Halloween Campaign Party launching their new vegan sweets range as well as all my classic favourites. I just have to tell you all about the event and how it actually went during the celebration where the crowd from bloggers, influencers to the press all came down to enjoy the inspired spooktacular pumpkin syrup cocktails and sin and tonic drinks all served with scrumptious canapés during the fun evening.

 

Swizzel’s Halloween Campaign Party launching their new vegan sweets range as well as all my classic favourites.

The best part of the entertainment were live zombie actor’s in character lurking in the dark which made cool photo ops for social media and insta stories GIFs.

It just had to be done. One more thing, it get’s even better as there was even a Tarot Card reader present who could tell the future, to a coffin full of sweets with a tomb stone which fogged up with smoke using dry ice using water which was pretty cool special affects to add to the ambience of the party. Wow!!!!what a great idea!, anyway I think I’ll have to try that one at home next time. Oh and the best part to end the night was being gifted lot’s of sweets by the Swizzel’s team based in Manchester I had the best time celebrating with you guys in preparation for my Halloween. I’ve just been down my local supermarket where you can fully stock up on Swizzel Sweets this Halloween Night!!! so don’t forget yours in case you want to share with your little monsters at home ha ha.

IN2RUDERS FILM PREMIERE & TRESOR PARIS ARTISAN COLLECTION LAUNCH HOSTED BY CAPRICE

THE NEW TP ARTISAN COLLECTIONS MAKES THE CUT AS A CONTEMPORARY TAKE ON CLASSIC GEMSTONES

Last night luxury jewellery brand Tresor Paris and the entertainment industry mingled with the fashion press and style influencers to preview the brand new film In2truders

It was also a chance to see up close the TP Artisan jewellery range and to celebrate the impending release of In2ruders, a trailblazer film production featuring Model Caprice.

The exquisite, new Artisan collection featured beautiful pieces of handcrafted intersections of diamond and precious gem stones were displayed which Caprice wears in the film too.

While observing each piece I discovered these are hand made using the gem stones as a starting point to craft intriguing pieces of jewellery around it. Inspired by the individuality of nature itself, the items are created to appeal the desire for something unique, natural and more bespoke.

 

I really enjoyed attending the event alongside the cast as well as artist Vincent Kamp who painted the portrait of Caprice wearing the diamond pieces as featured in the film.

So, more about the movie it’s directed by award winning film maker Naeem Mahmood who unveiled snippets of a glittering fantasy about the darker side of the music industry. There’s so much press surrounding the release of movies and the product placement that goes with it to make it a success is the most exciting part of brand collaborations.

This movie boast an all-star cast including Caprice, Doctor Who actor Samuel Anderson, Spandau Ballet ex-lead singer Tony Hadley, British style icon Ricki Hall, Megan Burns of 28 Days Later and music duo the Bloom Twins, set to a soundtrack produced by Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran.

I couldn’t be more excited to be surrounded by such talented people and be part of this special occasion to celebrate the release of the new film and launch of the new TP jewellery collection in the heart of Hatton Garden.

INTRODUCING THE INNOVATIVE BERLIN BRAND PIONEERING THE LATEST SMART DIGITAL LUXURY LUGGAGE FOR A NEW GENERATION

As a keen traveler myself I just love the thrill and excitement of jetting off somewhere new come summer time and the last minute trips in between. Deciding on what to take on a trip abroad is quite the challenge but essentially important as selecting the ideal luggage that is stylish but practical.

I managed to pop down to the London Launch of Horizn Studios temporary Soho store yesterday evening to feel inspired by their latest exclusive range of suitcases. Who knows I might be lucky enough to own one of these travel bags for my next upcoming trip for the foreseeable future. Wanderlust goals ha ha to always travel in style where ever I go.

Yesterday evenings party celebrated the launch of two exciting collaborations, the first with Arvida Bystrom, who had her latest exhibition available to preview at the venue. Also, exclusive artwork produced by DJ Seth Troxler DJ / Producer on display, along with his 99 t-shirts produced to raise money for Cook for Syria.

The music DJ Sets from Chelsea Layland, Cici Cavanagh and Overly Gassed helped contribute to a great party atmosphere which was a full house that continued into the late hours of the evening.

It was definitely great to see up close two exciting projects Horizn have been working on with Arvida Bytstrom and DJ Seth Troxler. There is a huge market out there where fashion brands are no longer standalone products but part of our lives that helps improve our lifestyle for the better.

For instance, observing this suitcase it can charge your phone and cleverly built in GPS tracker so you need not worry again if you loose any luggage whilst traveling. Luckily it has not happened to me just yet, but I’m sure none of you are willing to take your chances.

Here’s what I found out about the product and what’s so great about it! apart from the one click removable smart charger.

There’s even a case especially designed for DJ’s where you can store your vinyl and anything else that you need for a trip which is the first of it’s kind that I have come across recently. This has to be my favorite suitcase of them all as Horizn Studioes introduces their exclusive Premiere Line Collection range designed in collaboration with International DJ Seth Troxler – The Pro Model ST DJ case. It has all the smart functionality cleverly integrated within . Created for the Jet Setter on the go! it will take you from the plane to the club from digital to vinyl which Retails at £399

Other unique features for suitcases included laundry bags for dirty clothes and a compartment to store footwear keeping your items clean and fresh during transit. It’s ideal and a genius way to travel smarter in the future with all the extras thrown in. Suitcases such as this being advanced in digital technology do not come cheap but it’s worth the investment long term and I would definitely consider a purchase.

AN EVENING WITH TRESOR PARIS PIIISH LONDON JEWELLERY LAUNCH

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 123 views
EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE VIEW WITH TRESOR PARIS X PHIIISH LONDON COLLABORATION WITH SUMMER COCKTAILS BY THUNDER TOFFEE VODKA

Before leaving for Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week I had already put a reminder in the diary that I was due to attend an invitation to the Tresor Paris launch in collaboration with Phiiish London.  It was my first experience of coming into direct contact with the brand and what an amazing time I had during the private preview.

I have heard of Tressor Paris before by word of mouth through other Style Influencers and Bloggers so it was extremely kind of their press team to invite me down to the launch and be part of the event. I got to meet the designers Adam and Dean the faces behind the new line of Jewellery as they chatted to me about their exciting collaboration and partnership with Tressor Paris.

For those of you that are new to the brand Tressor Paris can be found in heart of London’s Jewellery district Hatton Garden just off Chancery Lane.  If you ever happen to be passing by the area do drop by and view the most exquisite pieces of jewellery on display at their flagship store.

I noticed that the brand is favoured too by an array of Celebrities and Social Media Influencers on instagram. Even more so it certainly caught my attention as I got to take home a new piece of the collection with me which was gifted by the brand.

It just happens the jewellery I received was a unisex bracelet which looks very minimal and contemporary to suit my taste. As always I say less is more. The new bracelet unveiled that evening to the press and media also comes in Rose Gold that’s 18 carat and really sophisticated too.  I just loved some of the other bracelets I tried on myself that come in black beads which are really cool to wear that roll to the movement of your wrist for ideal comfort.

Apart from the jewellery on display the hospitality included toffee flavoured vodka and sushi canapés as the press mingled with other style influencers and celebrities during the evening. I even got to catch up with my peers over drinks and find out what each other has got up to lately since Men’s Fashion Week.

Do you love jewellery as much as I do, then make sure you make Tresor Paris as part of your everyday lifestyle pieces are very versatile to dress up your work wear attire. It’s all in the eye-catching detail as the whole point of owning jewellery is to invest in classic pieces made to last and the quality is just superb. The final verdict, Lovely jewellery by very talented Designers and I hope to try allot more of the range in future to see what Phiiish London create next season.

MARSHALL HEADPHONES LONDON LAUNCH HEADLINES WITH LIVE PERFORMANCES BY BLACK HONEY & GOAT GIRL

By Posted on 0 Comments 3 min read 191 views

When it comes to the latest tech gadgets I’m always keen to try out new lifestyle brands on the market as I get an exclusive sneak peak of Marshall Headphones Major III Bluetooth Headphones before their official release next week.

During the official London launch night yesterday evening at 180 The Strand it also marked the opening of the brands worldwide major solo Exhibition. It was so exclusive that no photo’s were allowed which was separate to the main event where social media could be used to Instagram footage of the event live.

Marshall Amplification is a British brand founded by Terry Marshall a successful drummer musician that has acclaimed music industry status for excellence that dates back as far as the nineteen sixties. Since the brands founding from its early days from a drum shop its established itself as the leading music brand in the world. So lets touch upon a bit about the company history where Marshall started designing and manufacturing music amplifiers, speaker cabinets, brands personal headphones and earphones.

The exhibition was a great way to get to know the history behind such an iconic brand as part of popular culture and the integral part that Marshall played in revolutionizing sound technology innovation for the music industry today. As we entered the exhibition I was greeted by a brand rep who then handed me a pair of headphones connected to a smart phone which had the exhibition in digital format to explain factual information on the brand.

Parts of the exhibition were divided in zones that related to the individual chapters on the smart phones helping to navigate you as you make your way round and observe the images and information to help gauge a better understanding of the brand and it’s purpose. There was even a chill out area if you happened to take a wonder and explore where you could test out the new Marshall Headphones, listen to music and relax away from the party if needed.

Lately, I have been attending some great music events connected to lifestyle brands as more and more are finding new ways to connect with their audience via live music sets and performances. For this evenings entertainment Marshall Headphones headlined with Alternative/Indie bands such as Black Honey and Goat Girl leading London’s Indie scene.

Whilst I was there I got an exclusive sneak peek of their new material too and according to The Guardian and NME they are the One’s to Watch on the emerging artist music scene so definitely check them out.

If you are thinking of getting your hands on a pair of headphones I suggest trying them out before you buy to convince yourself otherwise. You get 30 + hours of wireless playtime and tune out function with mid active noise cancelling which is a modern classic re-engineered . The major III model features 40 mm dynamic driver that are custom tuned for enhanced base, smooth mids and clear highs. All in all, I’d say the product is much more improved than the M2 and added comfort too.
