Who, what and wear

I can’t quite believe the last time I actually put pen to paper ( fingers to keyboard) and blogged was in July!

Wasn’t being lazy, just incredibly busy and it’s amazing how once you let time slip it snowballs before you know it.        So I am making my New year resolution now at the end of November, no point waiting, and it is to make sure that I no longer have such long lapses.

I guess first thing first, to get back into the swing of things, a quick recap of what we’ve been up to since July, and also what and wear??

In August we won the runners up award for Most innovative Business at the London FSB awards, what a night! what a surprise! we’ve not looked back since , it’s been a whirlwind.

In Sept we updated our on-line shop with the new Winter 2015 lines. And our best-sellers?  Crystal skulls and midi totes

The shape of things to come, roll on summer 2016

Quite hard to believe that last week we attended the Swarovski launch event for summer 2016, feels like only yesterday I shared with you what is forecast for Winter 2015.

As always it was a beautiful event held in central London, with lots to see and much inspiration to be had.

4 key trends- Classic, Progressive, Romantic, and Glamour took centre stage, each one positive and with something else to offer. So what did I like???

The classic theme called ‘The blossoming of Happiness’ a floral inspired theme drawing on the wonders of nature to create something new and boy am I loving the new sherbet colours.

The Progressive theme  aptly named ‘The nature of strength’  all about your body and what it can help you achieve

The Romantic theme called ‘The mythology of hope’ defining the mood between night and day, from the stars to the morning haze

And last but not least the Glamour theme called ‘The power of belief’ seeing how different religions interplay creating a cultural mix. I am happy to say that when it comes to Swarovski the different religions create a harmonious and beautiful spectrum, not contradictory in any way and very beautiful, as they should

Of course there were many other things I loved…
