Today in London I am wearing striped Trousers and a Body...

So anther week and another two exhibitions in London. This time not at the Victoria and Albert but at the Fashion and Textiles Museum and the Business Design Centre.  First I went to the Orla Kelly Life in Pattern exhibition at the Fashion and Textiles Museum. A print inspired designer influenced by the 60s and 70s. There was so many amazing bags and clothes. What I really liked was as you walked into the main part of the exhibition, there was giant oversized garments and tiny replica worn by dolls. If you are in London I would definitely recommend this as one to see.

Fashion in Motion: Holly Fullton

Yesterday I went the Victoria and Albert (Yes Again!) to see their latest Fashion in Motion this time Holly Fulton retrospective. Holly Fulton is one of my all time favourite British Designers. The show was amazing sitting in the front row the atmosphere and set designer were stunning.  
Her designers were gorgeous I love the edgy sixties feel with the modern prints and use of PCV plastic.  I loved her classic use of florals and flowers and the way the clothes moved down the runway was sensational. 

I took so many great pictures but here are a few of my favourites...

Okay so this week's item isn't something you can go out and buy but Haute Couture Fashion Week has been and gone and its one on my favourite times in fashion. This Ellie Saab's half dress half jumpsuit is so breath taking that thats why it's my item of the week. I love the enchanting emerald green statin it really makes the design pop.  The stunning craftsmanship and design displayed with Haute Couture will never disappoint.

Today I am Wearing... White Halter Neck of my Own Making

Today I am wearing a white halter neck which I final finished making. 
I pattern cut the top from a basic bodice block by drawing the style lines on and made a half circle skirt from a waist measurement. I bagged out the top and hand sewn it down inside as well as the hem. I bound the seams inside. I used a binding from john lewis it wasn't the best quality I think I would make my own next time or  use the same as I did for the ribbon and loops.
I made my ribbon and and loops from a binding for a lace up back and zip down the back of the skirt.
