J. JS Lee AW13-14

J. J.S Lee AW13

A little look at J. JS Lee’s AW13-14 London Fashion Week show… Another little delight to tread the boards in the Portico Rooms was J. JS Lee. A lover of all things oversized, boxy and oh so tactile Jackie’s AW collection was a positive treat. To quote Freddy Mercury, “I want it all, I want it … Continue reading

The who, what wear of my London Fashion Week Day Two… Much like yesterday, today has me even-Steven between BFC and FS shows. Not starting ’til late (hurrah!)

Super gloss versus minimal matte very berry nails… Deep burgundy nail polish, so rich it looks as if you’ve dunked your digits into hot berry coulis, there’s no hue more indulgent this year.

As I stepped through … Continue reading
