Yesterday I attended the Autumn/Winter 13 Press Day hosted By Emslie Creative. It was held in the lovely Hush resturaunt which honestly I could not find! I'm not hugely familiar with London so without trusty google maps I would have been done for.
One of the brands being showcased that really stood out to me was Nines Vintage. They are an online retailer specialising in designer vintage pieces from the 60's to 90's. I love vintage clothes so I was pretty transfixed by thier rail. A pair of High waisted printed jeans By Mochino particularly caught my eye. Through thier website they also offer a service where if you are looking for a specifc item they will track one down for you. Pretty handy if you don't have time to trudge round loads of vintage shops to find that perfect item you have been dreaming of or if you live in an area without many vintage retailers. They can do all that for you.
The Label Line also caught my eye. They are a relitavly new site whihc offer 'luxury designs from emerging designers'. Being an undergraduate textile designer myself I always refreshing to see people supporting up and coming designers rather than only championing already established brands. They have a pretty wide range of products for both men and women from clothing to jewellery and accesories. The jewellery pictured is by a designer called Yasmin Every and it really had me swooning. It is soon to be stocked on the site so definitely keep and eye out for that.
Lastly but by no means least is jewellery by Kat&Bee. Now I have a post here all about my own Kat&Bee ring but the new collection is really something. Kat Barry is a jewellery designer working out of East London and her A/W13 collection is inspired by the five boroughs of New York. And well, I wanted all of it! I am a bit of a magpie in general but rings are really my thing. I tired on the gorgeous silver and gold skull ring and really had to force myself to take if off and put it back!
There where also some necklaces on show, not my personal style but perfect if eye catching statement necklaces are your thing. Also if you like a particular design but wanted a differnt colour way or had a specific design in mind they do take commissions. With prices starting at £65 they are more of an investment but defintiely worth it.
While I was there I also picked out a few of my favourite pieces and did a short spot of filming just talking through the bits that I liked. I'm not going to pretend it wasn't nerve wracking as I have never filmed anything with anyone else in the room and there where several peoeple watching but I got past it quickly. It was such a fun morning and I am so grateful to Amber and the rest of the Emslie team for having me.
