RIP OSCAR DE LA RENTA

courtesy of ABC News

Oscar de la Renta, a designer for the Park Avenue, Hollywood's finest and first ladies, died at his home in Kent, Connecticut, after a long battle with cancer​. He was 82. We look back and remember the Designer's beautiful Couture gowns and his 50 year contribution to the fashion world. We picked out some of his finest pieces from Spring RWT collection below.

He believed in hard work and the importance of appearance. He believed in beauty, not for beauty’s sake, but because he understood that elevating the outside could help elevate the inside; that confidence could be donned with a garment. He believed in balance, and the golden mean. He believed in lace and color and the leverage that came with a carefully chosen ruffle, but not too many ruffles. He believed, during the rise and fall of grunge and casual Friday, in staking his higher ground: being neither out nor in but, perhaps, above. He believed in the long game.

(Reuters) - Oscar de la Renta, the renowned fashion designer who died on Monday at the age of 82, will be buried at a private funeral in New York early next month. A mass for family and close friends will be held on Nov. 4 at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola at Park Avenue in Manhattan, according to Vogue magazine.

The Dominican-born designer, who dressed Hollywood stars, American first ladies and wealthy socialites, died at his home in Connecticut surrounded by his family. During his lengthy career De la Renta was known for his sophisticated suits with fitted jackets, feminine dresses in pastel colours and flowered prints, and elaborate evening gowns. He was a favourite among actresses including Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, who wore his creations on the red carpet.

#LFW

And so it has begun. London Fashion Week is once again on every ones tongue, literally! Even Mayor of London, Borris Johnson, tweeted about #LFW.
So only naturally I was in the centre of it all on the first day and what a vibe I felt.
From the shows to the styles outside and to all the bloggers, photographers, models and press present, everything was nothing but spectacular. Other than the wifi being stubborn, everything ran rather smoothly and everyone was super nice being more than willing to strike a pose for my camera.


Bringing out your alter ego on this day is a must! There's no time to be insecure or worry about what people think. This is what will get you noticed and when one person starts taking a picture everyone wants to capture your presence.
This fashion savy beaut of a mans outfit works so well. I normally stem towards the chic minimalistic 'Chanel' kind of look but I love how everything has been put together especially the accessories. The necklace, bull dog cross piercing, all the rings on his fingers and bag finishes the outfit off perfectly. Not forgetting the beard and hair. Love the beard!




The dog was a total babe magnet, although it would be a lie if I said nobody noticed the owner, You just cant go wrong with a bow tie and navy slim fit suit. 
 whilst on my stroll round the court yard absorbing all the sun and fashion an elderly man rode by on his very cool scooter and white suit. He entirely set himself apart from the crowd, and at that moment i had never wanted to be somebody else as much, he looked like he was having so much and it was inspiring to see at first hand how fashion has no age limit! And that is seriously what it comes down to. Having fun with fashion.
 It was so nice to see a variety of different outfits, this midi dress and bucket bag was a fantastic combo.
 
    Being a blogger is absolute heaven at London fashion week, you don't have to pester your partner or friends to take a picture of you because an influx of photographers are constantly ready to do the job.
 Even though LFW is all about the arrangement of your ensemble, I did not solely focus on the outfits. Instead I paid some attention to capturing a few head shots of the most intriguing faces I found, and how astonishing they all were.


It was refreshing to see how accepting everyone was at LFW, with androgyny being embraced. This model above was pro-actively creating awareness for blurring the lines between masculine and feminine characteristics fabulously! I for one would not hold out in those 6 inches for the whole day #props.

Neon hair, don't care. There were a lot of people strolling around who were seen to be sporting bright hair dos, an obvious relation to the digital theme that was being highlighted in the shows.
And they came two by two.
Being in a pair is highly complementing, and this was shown brilliantly at LFW. Whether it was planned or a coincidence it makes such an impact.

                                                       Famous Faces we all adore.
 
Fashion is forever evolving. With the help of the many social media platforms, one person has the luxury of playing many roles. The stylist, blogger, photographer and journalist is all one individual and so not only is everything becoming a lot more competitive than it was once before but also people are bringing a lot more to the table in terms of style and attitude towards of everything.

The eye catching singletons.


They know they looked the business.

SS15 LONDON FASHION WEEK!

Oh yes! Its that time again and we cant get enough. The schedules are up the times are in and everyone is buzzing to see next seasons trends for spring 2015! 
What do we know already?
Well we know that Maybelline is officially the Make up sponsor for London fashion week and their new product the Color Elixir is going to shine on the catwalk #QuiteLiterally. Looking at the collection that they have in its smooth 'soft not sticky' range is very spring! The 10 different shades are very exciting and agreeably the best way to start the fashion year.
The event to look out for
I know you guys may already know about the Headonism tea party that haute couture milliner Stephan Jones and Wedgwood have teamed up and organised for the very first day of  London Fashion Week from 4-6pm... But this collab is insane. I can only imagine the most luxurious and spirited decor at this particular event, we are all eager to see what happens. 

You guys really ought to check out Regent street right now. 15 architects have come together to change the shopping experience for customers and have created an outdoor exhibition by re inventing shop windows that reflects the brand and engages with the customer. Pictures coming soon!


With all that is coinciding with London Fashion Week right now, I will be going and checking it all out and of course getting back to you here.
