I was invited the other day to the Paul Smith in-store gallery event in Bahrain City Center and my date for the night was my 9 year old son.  It was a fun event where we got to know more about the British designer (fly the flag 😉 ), get a close up look of his photography and inspirations and be embraced by all things Paul Smith.  Behind the brand is  a down to earth guy who is more than just a designer.  His love of cycling is evident throughout the store with images of vintage cycles plastered all over the walls.  His dream as youngster was to by a cyclist and win the tour de france.  He married a woman who opened his eyes to the art scene and he found his calling in photography.  His photography is street style and you will also find images of a mini car photographed in different locations; which he drives everywhere himself.  Through his photography he finds inspiration for his designs which you will see in the images below.

Now this is the fun part.  There’s a competition for all of you and all you need to do is take any photo with your phones and linking it to Paul Smith in your special way.  Anything that reminds you of Paul Smith, his products, what you think he may find inspiring of even of his designs… the choices are open.. just link away.  You can then share your images on Instagram tagging #PaulSmithBahrain . The winner of the best photograph will win a BD100 gift card to use at our Paul Smith Boutique in Bahrain City Center. The competition ends on 16/12/2012. Spread the word, it’s going to be fun!

Lili.aiya is a new Dubai based label that has only just launched it’s first collection but is looking very promising indeed.  The first A/W13 collection focuses on simple, functional and electrifying shirt dresses.  These dresses are perfect for the woman who wants to dress modestly, as you can ideally pair them with black leggings or jeans without the hassle of all the layering.  The shirts can be worn during the day or dressed up with statement necklaces and worn at night and are very versatile.  “It is a fresh mixture of culture and modernity, catering to the needs of the multi-culti women that we all are. The pieces created offer a unique fusion of respect for traditions with a fashionable approach seen in energetic color elements and beautiful fits.”

I was invited to attend a styling event at a new boutique in Bahrain, FMH.  FMH is a very unique boutique in Bahrain and stocks a lot of great labels! Some of the brands there are DL1961, Bjorg, Muubaa, Jerome Dreyfuss, Finsk, Equipment and a whole lot more. A lot of other fashion bloggers attended as well, which was a great chance to meet the other local bloggers.  We were asked to go through the boutique and create an outift.  There were 2 models there and a photographer to capture all the images and have all the blogger looks posted on their FB page. The task sounded simple but was quite tough to decide on just one look when there were so many fab outfits I could create.  I wanted to create a look that I would wear.  A look that would be as modest inspired as can be and styled with and without a scarf.  I loved the studded jeans by Dimitris Zoz and the gorgeous geometric ring; actually I loved the whole outift!! What can I say .. am a rock chic at heart 😉 Sorry the images aren’t so clear am sure there will be clearer ones on the FMH page.

Hope you like it 🙂

Tickety tock tock..and the 7 day countdown begins ladies.  Anna Dello Russo’s collaboration with H&M is hitting stores Oct 4th!! Not long to go at all.  Below is the full collection I found on fashlink’s blog that I wanted to share with you all.  Better be prepared and make your choices before hitting the stores.  ADR is all about excess ” nothing succeeds like excess.. ” so pile it on and wear the unexpected at the end of the day what makes it all work is confidence and ADR’s style is always extravagant, fun and most importantly confident.  ADR’s music video for the collaboration hit the nail on the head with her opulent style and her fashion tips- Fashion Shower.
