Exciting new brands and designers and Chambord showcased at Fashion Press Week!

Last night myself and fellow blogger, fashion writer and all round lovely person Rachael Oku met up to attend Fashion Press Week, a really great concept where loads of brands and designers all showcase their latest designs together in one location, to make it nice and easy to view them all!
It was held at One Marylebone, a beautiful location in the heart of London which was once a church and is now a gorgeous destination. Chambord held a fab drinks reception with champagne/chambord cocktails and there was lots of fashiony type people milling about the whole evening enjoying their chambord and champers!

After enjoying the yummy drinks, we had a look around at the designers and brands showcased. There were some gorgeous pieces, including Viyella, a brand I hadn't really looked at before, but their mix of quirky prints, knits and printed dresses had as oohing and ahhing...loved their menswear too and had a bit of an urge to fling on some of the chunky men's cardis!

We saw a fab new accessory brand called Buba, all hand made handbags, jewellery and even bean bags covered in beautiful jewels. Marc Cain was there showcasing their AW11 collection, and as beautiful as it was, we didn't see anything too groundbreaking.

Another favourite was Viking Wong. A designer orginally from Hong Kong (and yes, that is his real name!) who creates simple and well structured designs, mainly monochromatic colourways, with a tendency to look a bit inside out...loved it! Also fell in love with London based label Knock on the Door, who use different designers to create their collection. We especially loved designer Christine Hall's t-shirt designs with Peter Pilotto-esque prints and mesh backs. Kooky but fab!

Loads more to go on about, so will do another post later with some pictures from the night. For now, enjoy! x
