Happppyyy New Year!!!!Ooooof...I've been totally off the radar over Christmas ....the world of nut roast and mince pies, prezzies and plenty of cheesy movies was simply too inviting!!!! Anywaysss....festivites over and away we go!!! Super excited for 2012 YEAHHHHHHHHHHH! So as I mentioned a few weeks ago on my blog, me and my chum, superstar magicalllllllll stylist supremo, Alexis Knox had packed our glittery bags and jetted off to beautiful St Petersberg thanks to a lovely invite from the team at 'Aurora Fashion Week Russia!' I've already given you the lowdown of what went on in an earlier rambling....but now you can read my full catwalk report in the brand new, issue 55 of Notion Magazine, complete with a 4 page feature, photos and gossip!!! So get yourself down to WH Smiths and all good newsagents and grab your very own glossy copy! Or.... you can read the online version HERE on pages 86-89!!!!
It was my first ever experience of visiting Russia and also of getting a peek into St. Petersberg's fashion scene....we were able to check out a load of great designers, a bunch of Fashionomica conferences, the accompanying tradeshow and side events....Whilst I'm on the subject, here are a few snaps from some of my favourite shows we hit up whilst in town.....
The 'Grazia Presents' showcase featured a string of emerging designers with a variety of looks covering plenty of plumage to nauticual influences mixed in with a bit of Grecian draping and black lace a-go-go.....
Here's a few from my personal highlights including Arngoldt, Bessarion and Sandra Straukaite......
'Kare' represented as 'Aurora Fashion Week Russia's' official interior partner with a fun installation complete with live models....and Minna Parikka showcased her awesome footwear and accessories in the programme's tradeshow!!!!
If you want to hear the full shenanigans and show reports then be sure to check out my Notion article!!!! Plenty of juice for you there!!!!!
All right....so that's all for now folks as the kettle is boiled so, plenty more gossip coming soon!!!!!!!
Magical wishes to all for 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love Emma xxx
