Bloggers Love Fashion Week Gifting Event – London Penthouse

On Monday, 15th September I attended the Bloggers Love Fashion Week Gifting Event organised by Danielle from Bloggers Love at The Penthouse on Leicester Square. The event saw both aspiring and established brands showcasing their designs, clothing, handbags, accessories and jewellery lines and as the name of the event suggests, a vast number of giveaways was in place! I got a lovely goodie bag with great hair products from shoprush.
The event attracted so many bloggers and fashionistas promoting their styles and trends too!
As it was a perfect opportunity to dress up I chose this gorgeous ROKSANDA ILINCIC Estes Charteuse T-shirt in Light Yellow I snapped from matchesfashion.com and Marc Jacobs Mirah black leather trousers. I paired them with Emporio Armani grey leather and snake skin pumps and JAEGER quilted leather bag.
The evening was super busy with bloggers and brands alike, chatting away, discussing their collections and taking photos.
I have met so many up-and-coming designers with their eye catching lines. I loved the green-themed silk scarves from BYMY.

P1040038I liked the laser cut leather edgy clutches by Nadia Minkoff. This very British label set up in 1988 prides themselves on using the finest leathers, innovative techniques and vintage inspired designs with a modern twist.
P1040020Nadia’s layered statement necklaces are equally, inspiring and oozing understated charm.P1040022Cataleya London is yet another fabulous bag label, deriving its name from the queen of orchids, the brand was set up by a British Designer, Reeru Rai in 2013. Her beautifully crafted bags exude luxury, femininity and function. P1040041P1040043My absolute favourite was this red Italian patent crocodile embossed leather tote.P1040046Fuschia White is also a brand new fashion boutique set up by two sisters, Lubaina and Lamya Karimjee.

My ultimate favourite was this powder blue PVC midi skirt.P1040051Jo Morton’s Valour & Valkyrie collection did catch my attention as well! I took liking to her fairy tale themed, vintage inspired, digital print blouses and jewelled jumpers. P1040036I love the “Scandinavian-like” brand name that somehow resonates with its whimsical and enchanting designs.
P1040033I love Tinkilove by Maria-Katharina Richters. I met Maria on a few occasions in the past and I am a fan of her fresh and bold designs with classic feminine elements, very wearable yet versatile.
P1040029She is also a creative spark behind Capturelove, yet another label she launched retailing exclusive designer caps with imaginative illustrations, creative drawings and intricate designs.
P1040061Kisses from Coco is an online fashion boutique with a hefty supply of contemporary, playful yet stylish accessories, clothing, bags and jewellery.
