LFW : Fashion International : Yuvna Kim

During LFW I was kindly invited by Dee Vesali PR to attend the Fashion International show at The Charing Cross hotel. I meant to post this earlier - but I was interning at the time and have only just caught up with myself. The fashion international show was my first taste of a catwalk esque event and I have to say I ADORED the event. The location was beautiful and the collections showcased were beautiful.

Yuvna Kim's collection was by far mine and my friend Jess's favourite. Yuvna is a Mauritian-born London-based women’s wear designer and her collections draw inspiration from cultural heritage and tradition, fused with cross-cultural references from across the Indian Ocean.
For SS14, Kim presents BIJOUX, a line of exquisite nude and ivory eveningwear, which nods to 1920s French deco jewellery. Georgette gowns are intricately embroidered with crystals, beads and pearls, and frothy tulle skirts and embellished with delicate feathers. As you can see the results were STUNNING. I'm not sure where I'd wear a beautiful dress like the ones showcased but they literally took the audiences breath away...

Interning outfits day 001 : kimono

Necklaces - Republic (old) 
Chelsea boots - eBay 

  Today was my first day interning at River Island's PR office! I have had the most surreal day, the office is so warm and welcoming and I'd already recommend it on my first bloomin' day! I've watched the model castings for Rihanna's collection today, and assisted Mel Ottenberg and their team with various things like food and drink runs. So crazy. Anyways! I thought I'd make an effort and snap a quick outfit shot for you guys, although my camera's playing up, i'm tired and the lightings awful. Anyway, I digress, I never realized how much ebay I had on today! all these bits are great quality AND there all UK sellers which means they'll get to you sooner than the across seas sellers. I'm loving kimonos at the moment, if you have anymore recommendations on where I can buy more please share! Heres to a great two weeks, and I shall outfit post as much as possible! I'm actually going to an LFW show on friday so I'm sure I'll be sharing that with you all too...
