Dream of seeing a live runway during London Fashion Week? well you’re in with a chance!

Yes, it’s official ! Nico Didonna & Nadia Minkoff London collaborate for the 3rd time during London Fashion Week, Feb 15th at The Bloomsbury set Event!

Cutting edge bespoke tailor and dress designer Nico Didonna  will be presenting his ‘wrap,Protect & conceal ‘ collection in collaboration with London based accessory designer Nadia Minkoff  on Feb 15th as part of the Bloomsbury set event, during London Fashion Week.

The duo who have collaborated for the past 2 seasons are looking forward to hosting their third collaboration, in the heart of Central London to an estimated crowd of 500 guests which will   include 150 press.

The ‘Wrap, Protect & Conceal’ collection has been designed with flexibility and elegance at the forefront. Inspired by winter’s natural vigour, the collection, created with a vibrant and deep colour pallet with symmetrical designs and tactile pleating , embrace the female shape creating a sense of voluptuousness – Nico Didonna’s design trademark.

The accessories have been designed to enhance the collection without over shadowing it. Much thought has gone into the fine details and the colour pallete to ensure a harmonious marriage of texture, colour and functionality.

The Bloomsbury Set event, now in its 4th season, is the brain child of affinity branding expert Stephen Mahoney and fashion consultant/journalist Cristina Polizzi. The emphasis is to bring together high quality designers and products, 2 daily runway offerings  and static show, in order to create a lifestyle event within London Fashion Week.

You can win 2 tickets and an opportunity to win  a Nadia Minkoff London Belgravia Crystal clutch by visiting Zoe Griffin’s ‘Live like a VIP’

Go on, it may well be you!


Another catwalk? already?

Seems no sooner you lay one season to bed the next one is already due. Anyone working in fashion will know exactly what I mean when I say that… indeed we’ve just ‘closed our books’ on our summer 2013 range, which I must add- we’re delivering into stores now despite the fact that in the UK it is winter, wet, cold and pretty miserable. We’ve already previewed our winter 2014/5 collection at Scoop Intl’, but ..on Feb 15th, is when it gets seriously serious, with our London Fashion Week catwalk – the pinnacle of every season. Are we ready? well, in fashion terms we are not doing too badly , at least on the organisational side we’ near enough have every things sorted: venue, models, hair, makeup, music, sponsors. No doubt we will find some last minute changes required but we’re doing pretty good. As for the collection? well- not doing too badly here as well. Our key colours are sorted, so are our key pieces and now we are are working on the fine details, the smaller pieces that make it all come together. And hopefully it will..  that is all comes together as planned and even better on the day. Will keep you posted right here on our progress and on the big day itself.

There’s something about that dog..


The wonderful Stephen M, fashion editor, guru, scout and all round lovely person called me today, a quick catch up three weeks after our catwalk. Alwyas excited, always positive he’s a breath of fresh air and his endless enthusiasm is not only infectious but makes me smile- every time. So, the list of publications featuring the catwalk is still steadily rising and for now the interest is far from fading if anything it’s gathering momentum.. every designers dream. As we talk, he forwards me a list of the most recent features, it is impressive. I click on the links and a definite picture is emerging.. our most photographed guest is the pooch in the front row. ‘Stephen’ I say  ‘now we know…if you want to get into Forbes make sure you include some trendy dogs on your guest list!’

Have a great weekend and for those of you fortunate enough to have a lovely dog, were you aware of what a sought after fashion accessory he ( or she ) is ???

Crowd watching at the catwalk

ImageImageImageImageWell, it feels like I have been off the radar for ages now, no posts for over a week!! I guess you can never tell the impact of a major event till it’s well and truly over. So my big event, the London Fashion Week catwalk with Nico Didonna was a whirlwind of frantic preparation and last minute amendments. And on the night? well, it just couldn’t have gone better, one of those nights were everything slots into place and it all works out great. Since then I have been ‘recovering’, having some quiet time, re-charging my batteries in preparation for yet another season. So here are some of my crowd pics for you ( and our curtain call). As you can imagine, we had a fantastically eclectic crowd ( well, you would expect that from London Fashion Week)  we even had some very trendy and very well behaved fashionista pooches!

Friday is catwalk day!


So this is it, Friday 15th and our début catwalk this evening in collaboration with Nico Didonna. Wow, talk about an adrenaline rush and the anticipation is just about killing me.. is the press going to turn up as expected?are they going to like it? are the buyers going to turn up and like it? are my personal guests going to turn up and like it? have we got it right? are we going to managed to dress up the models during the scene changes with no major drama’s??  Well, at least we are all prepared, with our accessories neatly sorted by groups and scenes.  So,bring it on I say!

Post show pics and comments to follow, don’t worry, whatever the outcome I’m going to be telling you all about it.
