Lewis&Leigh PR press day

Monday, 28 April 2014

Hey dolls its me again!
A few weeks ago I was kindly invited to the Lewis & Leigh AW/14 Press Day. The press day was situated in the heart of London at the prestigious Sanderson Hotel. It was an amazing day where I saw some of Lewis and Leigh Pr talented designers. The event was well organised and the atmosphere was very welcoming. I especially enjoyed the varied style of designers and the layout of the event.It was great to talk to the designers and find out what the inspiration were behind their amazing collections.The collections were outstanding partnered with well organised lighting and presentation.I particularly loved the collections by  Christian Cowan Sanluis,  It's Not Me It's You, Beau Homme, Phiney Pet, Orphan Bird.   

All designers are  represented by Lewis&Leigh PR if you would like to contact them with any enquiries relating to the collection below.

Obscure by Julie Gardener
Obscure is a company that produces the finest, hand-finished, silk scarves. The scarves are designed by the talented Julie Gardener.Her scarves can be worn or even framed and displayed as works of art. Each of her detailed designed scarves has a meaning as each photograph tells a story.

I particularly enjoyed her designs because of the crisp quality of her photographs and also the vast variation in the types of photos she took.I was surprised to find out that one of the photos was taken from a helicopter looking down on molten lava.

Jay Briggs
Jay Briggs is a recent graduate, he creates beautiful hand made millinery hats and he has amazed UK press with his dark fairy tale style. He uses innovative unconventional materials like goose feathers and beetle wings which all could be described as taxidermy for his couture looks.





Beau Homme
Beau Homme designs and produces everyday menswear clothes that delicately challenge prevailing conventions.In 2007, he came to study Menswear at London College of fashion, where he met his BEAU HOMME business partner.
This collection was really captivating because of the surrealism inspired prints on the men blazers and also the juxtaposition of themes they created.






Christian Cowan-Sanluis
Christian Cowan-Sanluis's collection had a very fun feel. He uses unique textures like mohair to create a suit and tie style women outfit.He has been very successful with his latest collection with celebrities like lady gaga and Eliza Doolittle sporting his looks. He is only 20 years old so he is still quite you but so far he has accomplished a lot, so expect great things from him. He has successfully pushed the boundaries of his style in terms of texture his approach of his designs.
