One great reason I travelled to London was for some press events. First one was a clothing event for Darling clothing, a beautiful company with some gorgeous items for a variety of women. The event was to showcase their SS13 items, but also debut the AW12 Christmas collection. As I got off the train and found my way in my normal fluster, I was greeted with a cup and saucer of bubbles, and a delicious slice of cake- they clearly knew I was coming!
As I gazed around the room of clothes I could tell this would be a range for someone similar to me, as it was full of feminine articles. There were delicate fabrics, floral gatherings, elegant cuts and items that were also a tiny bit daring to push your fashion boundaries. Looking at the SS13 collection for Darling, from the first glance I could feel myself getting excited about next summer. What was laid out before me were subtle pastels, polka dots, lace, excitable colours and an immense vintage vibe but one that was encouraging a classic styled theme. I felt a great need to dig out my cake stand, tea set and have garden party!
There was tarot card reader at the event along with a magician, who entertained me with his magical foam bunnies that would multiply in my hands - I know I'm 28 but its still very impressive! I even had my hair done whilst I sipped my drink and admired such a range of clothes. I was keeping my eyes out for dresses for the upcoming winter parties, some of which I saw with rich tones, lots of lace and warmth in velvet fabrics. After viewing the BELOVED range, I was for once extremely excited about the cooler days ahead and I did fall in love with the dress below.
