Style Note: The Isabella Oliver Cape

Posted by London Darling

Yesterday was one of those cold and breezy days in London when you really need something warm and snug to wrap up in. And what better way to wrap up than in a cape. It's the perfect alternative to a winter coat. I received this beautiful one as a Christmas Gift from one of my favourite labels Isabella Oliver.

London Fashion Week Diary: BODYAMR

Posted by London Darling

The BODYAMR show was one that I was particularly looking forward to, and it was well worth the wait. The signature draping that I love still played a huge role in the collection as an abundance of luxe fabrics and beaded embellishment.

I recently changed my beauty regime to include the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, the Instant Boost Skin Tonic and Skin Repair Moisturiser. It's been just six days, and already I've seen a noticeable difference in the clarity of my complexion and the texture of my skin.

LFW Diary: Entry 2

Noir / Bllack Noir - Autumn/Winter 09

Peter Ingwersen, the danish designer behind the label Noir/Bllack Noir gave us a peak into the future of sport luxe style with his collection of monochrome and gold pieces for next season. Since the launch 2 years ago, the label has done well to change the perception of ethical fashion. For many, putting ethical and fashion together means, quite simply unsustainable style, but Ingwersen proves this assumption to be a big misunderstanding.

Style notes: The collection was thoroughly slimline with a hint of androgyny. The boyish charm of the pieces were balanced beautifully with asymmetrical shapes and lustrous layers of fabric. The overall theme was sporty, biker chick glamour with undertones of dark, vamp seductiveness. My favourite look was the slim matt leggings matched with the asymmetrical black sequined top. I love the way the top draped with fantastic shape around the waistline - it worked so well with the leggings and patent platformed pumps.

Colour notes: Black, navy, white and gold.

Gossip: Noir/ Bllack Noir had plenty of acclaim from views and gurus at the front row. Any critics who prematurely doubted the sustainability of this collection were quickly silenced. All seemed satisfied and content that ethical fashion can be slick, sexy and completely wearable.

Here are my highlights from the catwalk:
