Lilac Edit

It is much easier to work out how to wear lilac once you start thinking of it as pink for grown-ups.

Lilac works best when there is a lot of it, and it is not too fussy. A lilac outfit, with clean lines and simple accessories, will look a great deal less old lady-ish and is straightforward way of making a wallflower colour more assertive.

Little Black Dress with a twist

How about a bit of TLC? Put a little twist on this classic LBD, as it is a party season, sequins and a splash of colour are obligatory!

Sky blue

A colour that we all will already own and feel comfortable in, blue – whether in shades of sky, cobalt, navy or aqua – is a hue easy to pull off and feel feminine in.

With this in mind, here is an example of how to wear it…

Hats at LFW15

Here is another snapshot of what I saw at LFW15. I can’t forget about the gorgeous hats, fascinators and headpieces!

Keely Hunter Millinery showcased her AW/15 Fourth World collection which explores the futurist designs of science-fiction created through a mix of textures and concave shapes aimed to conjure up a sense of portals and unimagined worlds.

Keely was trained in London and worked under various couture designers before establishing her own label. She appeared in numerous  fashion publications – including Vogue Germany, Vogue UK, Vogue Italia, Grazia and Wallpaper and was named by Selfridges to be a Bright Young Thing – the first milliner ever chosen for the store’s ‘next big thing’ designer showcase. Here are some of my favourite designs.

For everyday use, I loved the Perspex Peak Hat and Charcoal Mohair Tall Crown.

For a more avant-garde look, the Block Headpiece, Mirror Saucer and Hexagon Percher definitely stood out!

AWON GOLDING MILLINERY was another brand that caught my eye!

Awon Golding is a London based milliner drawing on her multicultural heritage (she spent a lot of time in India. Hong Kong and England) to inspire dynamic headpieces.
Creating dramatic silhouettes, with each piece handcrafted in her London studio, her creative talent was recognised by The Honourable Feltmaker’s Guild, when Awon was awarded first prize in its annual millinery competition in 2010. Currently her pieces are being sold in London’s Liberty!

At London Fashion Week, Awon Golding showcased her AW/15 Floral Decay collection full of crispy autumn hues, from rich pinks and purples to the earthy tones of warm mustard, moss and gold.
“Faux fur and rich felts mingle with buttery soft leather and mirror-polished brass to create a luxe-accented collection. Transitional turbans, headbands and berets provide glamour, whilst cosy cossacks, full-brimmed fedoras and earmuffs balance function with style.”

My absolute favourites are felt hats so I immediately fell in love with this Calyx soft two-tone mustard and magenda fedora velour felt hat set off by a mirror-polished trim band.

How stylish is this eye catching diagonal Heath multi-fur cossack headband made from hot pink, natural fox and purple faux fur!

I really liked this Polen statement beret disc that adds glamour to any outfit. Mustard velour felt base and bow with purple faux fur pom pom and gold crystal accents will make you stand out from the crowd!

Finally, Zoe Sherwood! I loved her signature sculptural pieces inspired by nature.
Central St Martin’s offsping – Zoe is a London based head piece and ornament designer who, before graduating worked with the likes of Diane von Funstenberg and her hair ornaments are currently selling at Liberty’s under their “Best of British Talent”.
