IMG_3213 How to Start Your Own Fashion Label: London College of Fashion (Toby Meadows) 

The last day of Fashion Forward and I got to attend some great shows; Tresors Sauvages, Amira Haroon, Zayan the Label, Amato and Ayesha Depala.  It was a fun fashion filled 3 days and am so glad I got to attend the very first one.  I am looking forward to the next one later this year in October, it can only get better!

zayanEverything you would expect and more at the Zayan show; whimsical, flirty, romantic, eclectic and fun!zayan1 Aside from the fabulous clothes; the icing on the cake for me at the Zayan show was seeing the tailors sitting amongst the crowd cheering on their designs! The excitement and pride on their faces brought tears to my eyes! It was the sweetest thing ever!! There were some seated near by and others across the catwalk. They were signalling to each other as their own outfits that they tailored strutted the catwalk and clapping away…#priceless
