Happy fashion week!!!

The most exciting week of the year has finally arrived...
And what better way to kick it all of than attending one of the first catwalk shows of the fashion filled week!
I had such an amazing day at Somerset House on Friday where London Fashion Week is being held; from the beautiful couture to the champagne and music, the ambiance was unreal! And I must say some of the ensembles being worn were completely out of this world, quite literally! It was also very surreal being stopped by fellow bloggers and photographers for photos which really took me by surprise! It was all SO fashion week, and I loved every minute of it!

I was kindly invited by Tresor Paris, the Parisian diamond, jewellery and fashion brand, as their new Saturn and Neptune collection was being showcased at the Corrie Nielsen catwalk show, and the jewellery looked stunning! The subtle glimpses of the iconic Tresor Paris bracelets worked so incredibly well with Corrie's adventurously structured couture pieces. I can definitely see why the iconic bracelets are so hugely popular over the past year, and I adore mine! 

Here is the iconic Tresor Paris bracelet I got in my goodie bag at the catwalk show, (£149)

Corrie Nielsen's 'Vestiarium Scoticum' A/W collection strongly incorporates her Scottish heritage to form a beautifully unique style that creates real key pieces, with the iconic tartan pattern woven in throughout the collection it really is hard not to love Nielsen's style, as a lot of it is very wearable. This dress being my favourite piece from the show- 

Corrie was asked what herThree autumn/winter 2012 inspirations are: “My Scottish great, great, great grandfather John S. Burns who emigrated from Scotland to the United States about the same time as the Revolutionary War; he settled in Arkansas. I’m also inspired by Scottish clans that produced unique hand-woven tartans representing a particular family name, as well as medieval English and Scottish forms of dress and lifestyle.”(taken from LFW website) 

I absolutely LOVED the outrageous head pieces! 

MAKEUP MAKEUP MAKEUP- Here's a sneak into the backstage makeup at the Corrie Nielsen show, the models were sporting a unique approach by using face transfers, I loved this look it enhanced the collection perfecly and gave that edgy feel that Nielsen's collection embraced

My FROW goodie bag included a lovely tub of Gazelli triple youth reviving eye cream (£38). This light, rich anti-agening cream is formulated to nourish and rejuvenate the eye contour area, based on white healing oil this cream increases metabolic processes at the cellular level which improves the skins ability to regenerate itself.... (impressive huh?!). I know I may not need this yet but after doing my research into this fabulous healing beauty brand I think its a good idea to start early to prevent lines and wrinkles later in life and keep my skin looking as radiant as it possibly can!... You can never be too prepared!! And I advise everyone to check this brand out at www.gazelli.co.uk for the full skin care range. 

Part II coming soon!!!!
