Last month I received an invite to the third season of Bloggers Love Fashion Week, which took place on 25th and 26th March at the super cool Fourth Floor studios in East London. This is the first blogger event I’ve attended, and it definitely lived up to my expectations!
I attended Day 1 of the event with my friend Teh (she blogs here) and discovered some fab brands which I’ll share with you below…
Joe Browns is the perfect brand for those who are after something a bit different to what the high street offers. The brand takes inspiration from all over the world and the bold patterns and colours and unique silhouettes are definitely eye-catching. I love the brand’s Spring Summer 15 collection, which I thought had a vintage and kitsch kind of feel. Joe Browns is also available at Debenhams.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sabreena, the owner of Norenzo Jewellery and her friend Heather who were both lovely. Sabreena’s gorgeous handmade pieces will add the finishing touch to almost any outfit and I wanted literally everything on the table!
Before we move on, how cool is this setup? Online jewellery boutique Gossimar Wings specialises in statement/fashion pieces and is the perfect choice for anyone who’s after affordable, show-stopping jewellery.
IRIS is a luxury sandal and accessory brand that epitomises elegance and individuality. The brand specialises in handmade embellished leather designs. I’m in love with the colours and details of each piece and think we’ll be seeing a lot more of IRIS very soon.
If you’ve always wanted to design your own custom jewellery, then you’ll absolutely love Mink & Stone. Founder and creative director Miisa demonstrated on her iPad how easy it is to design pieces on the Mink & Stone website. I was impressed by the massive selection of materials to choose from; there are beads, stones, crystals and more. Thanks to Mink and Stone, designing your own jewellery is a simple and fun process.
NIKI P bags and silk scarves are truly show stopping. They are made with a combination of high-quality fabrics and 100% leather. Niki hand draws the amazing designs herself!
Just Trade is an online shop that sells fair trade ethical jewellery. The company collaborates with producers in Peru, India and Ecuador to produce jewellery. The super cute rabbit and badger pendants in the top photo were carved from Tagua nuts in the Amazon rainforest. Cool, huh? Just Trade’s pieces catch your eye because they’re so unique. The fact that the jewellery is fair trade is a bonus too!
Textile designer Naomi Tuffery founded her company Tuff Love two years ago after she graduated with a degree in Textiles and Surface Design. She specialised in print design and sells silk scarves, tops and accessories through Tuff Love. It’s easy to see why Naomi’s tops (above) were a big hit on the night. Naomi kindly gave one to me at the event and I can’t wait to wear it in the summer. It’s so comfortable and I’m in love with the print. The top I have is ‘Splash’ and you can order it here.
Overall I had a great time at the event and am looking forward to the next one. A big thank you to the brilliant Danielle who organised the whole thing. Follow Bloggers Love on social media to stay updated with their events and and everything-else they have going on.
