MAWI – LFW15

So here comes my last London Fashion Week post! I have written a lot about jewellery at LFW Designer Showrooms however, I wanted to pay special attention to MAWI – one of my go-to statement jewellery brands.

Mawi Keivom and Tim Awan founded their brand 2002 at London Fashion Week. Designer Keivom customized one of her necklaces with jewels and vintage touches –
inspiring an entire collection of similar products. Since its launch, the costume jewellery and accessories brand has collaborated with Disney Couture, Swarovski and Selfridges  maintaining the nostalgic yet contemporary style they have come to be known for.

MAWI speaks about their pieces as ‘ornamental meeting places for the past, present and future’. Each piece is both contemporary and vintage-inspired which means these vibrant accessories will continue to be stylish for years to come.
I have been painstakingly collecting their rings and necklaces for years now but my most treasured pieces come from Deco Noir, Metropolis and Rebel Romance collections.

If you feel it is your bling day, go with the Rebel Royal collection and show off that urban glamour. Mix things up with the Emerals Slogan Charm necklace or just add a pinch of glamour with the Rubies earrings, or a cool, in-your-face Ruby bling-tastic ring.

Rings were particularly enticing with their gorgeous gem clusters.
It was great fun trying on new designs! I particularly loved this extended flexible ring which design offers movement to the precious stones and looks just breathtaking!

Set either in glossy bordeaux or jet black, showcasing fearless punk rock detail and diamante slogans – THIEF and DEALER. Handbag or clutch? They are certainly not for the faint-hearted!

I loved these lush quilted velvet and furry clutches highlighting golden sun-ray shaped surface detail, with spikes and rock clusters bursting outwards from the core.
Pretty and colorful, these clutches will brighten up any outfit.

Jewels were layered with smaller sections making room for chunky statement tiers creating exceptionally detailed and bold pieces.
 In true Mawi style the collection boast a series of individual collections, each with their own influences and aesthetics; from gold bunnies to rebellious city glamour. The playful ‘BUNNY LOVE’  collection presented a cute alternative to Mawi’s signature decadently rocking jewels.

You see bunnies leaping across structured bangles and dropping from shimmering earrings and pendants, I love their creepy smiles!

This season Mawi introduced a new addition to their impressive collections – slinky silk and cashmere knitwear, shimmering with glitter slogans shouting ”THIEF’, ‘DEALER’ and ‘SAPPHIRES’. 
 These little gems are sure to be on every sartorialists wish list.

After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

I was invited to join the private viewing of Vashi diamond and precious stone collection held at Tart Bar near Barbican in London.
