Amelia’s Magazine | Busardi: London Fashion Week S/S 2015 Catwalk Review

For the second season Busardi showed in London, this time taking to the catwalk in the opulent surroundings of a Georgian mansion in Mayfair for Air, a collection inspired by the landscapes of South America. The mother and son team from Thailand had looked to the glaciers of Patagonia, the plunge pools of Iguazu Falls and the pink sand of the deserts in Argentina, ably demonstrating their global outlook.

The Busardi collection was squarely aimed at a glamourous upmarket crowd, with delicate lace details, feathers, brocade and satins aplenty. Subtly tousled hair and finest mesh, chiffons and silks all added to the airy feel, perfect in pretty pastel tones for the garden party set.

I chose my seat because it was next to a glorious marble fireplace decorated with golden rams’ heads (I do love the chance to see inside a fancy gaff)… thus ensuring that my photographs were rubbish, so I’ve used a few by the official photographer. Scroll down for the official video too.

Amelia’s Magazine | Christmas Gift Ideas 2013: Fashion

Snowy Owl scarf by Nkoyo

Snowy Owl scarf by Nkoyo.

In the first of my Christmas gift round ups I give you the best ideas for lovers of bespoke high end fashion from a selection of talented up and coming designers. All of them will be selling on my new website when it launches in the New Year, but in the meantime you can buy from their own websites, I do hope you will support them and buy your loved one something special to treasure for years to come (or perhaps hint to your loved one what you would like…) Here are my recommended picks: be quick, Christmas is not far off now.

Ever Rêve - Vida dress

The Vida Dress by Ever Rêve features a stunning geometric print in soft flowing silk crepe de chine. Michelle Urvall-Nyren developed her trademark patterns through a fascination with her grandmother’s batik dresses, and I love the way she mixes strong lines with flattering shapes. Order yours for a bargain £175 quick! Read more about Ever Rêve here.

Nkoyo snowy owl silk scarf

If you are looking for an accessory rather than a garment how about an illustrated piece from Nkoyo? I am just a little bit in love with this Snowy Owl scarf which comes in a cosy winter mix of wool lawn and silk with a fringed edge, and is yours for just £120. Read more about Nkoyo in this interview with designer Alice Nyong.

Jano_Jumper_Anna Popovitch

The Jano silk jersey jumper by Anna Popovich has a luxe lace sleeve detail and makes perfect winter wear for lovers of all things bespoke and beautiful. Order it now for a reduced price of £195 until January, and with free shipping in the UK. In fact the whole collection is beautiful, so I urge you to check it out. I will be interviewing Anna Popovich soon.

Beautiful Soul AW13-Mi Playsuit

Beautiful Soul is offering free worldwide delivery up until Christmas. I recommend the cute and sexy Mi Playsuit which comes in silk georgette in the Ladybird Black statement print of big blossomy hydrangeas. The plunging neckline means it can be dressed up or down for day to night wear: what a stunning outfit for a loved one. It costs £360 here. Read more about designer Nicola Woods in this interview from 2012.

Vita Gottlieb lizard scarf

Finally, Vita Gottlieb‘s Lizard scarf comes in a subtle beige and brown colour and features a hand painted watercolour design that is printed in Como, Italy. Como is the centre of printed textiles in Italy where I spent 3 months working in a small studio during my degree (random fact). This scarf comes in a micromodal wool mix so it can be worn in all seasons, and costs £195. Read my recent interview with Vita Gottlieb here.

Next up, my recommended jewellery gift ideas. Stay tuned!
