London College of Fashion are opening their first ever retail store – College Shop –  stocking unique and one off creations from their host of multi talented alumni.

Launching on Friday 9 September amongst the haven of 30 independent shops in Kingly Court, the boutique will be open for 3 weeks.

Discover pieces by fashion’s rising stars including this year’s BA collection of the year winner Nova Chui, alongside more established LCF alumni – Ada Zanditon, Beatrice Boyle and William Tempest.

Pieces are wearable but luxurious with prices ranging from £20 up to £400 and includes one-off designs from recent graduates in womenswear, menswear, footwear, accessories, jewellery, fashion photography and illustration.  Each piece is signed by the designer and has been hand selected by an expert buying team including Angela Quaintrell – former buying director at Liberty.

New pieces will be showcased daily and you’ll be able to view digital catalogues for further collections and even book private appointments with the designers.

This is your chance to buy a piece of (affordable!) fashion history.

Pieces from College Shop will be featured on the Carnaby Catwalk on Saturday 10 September, click here for more information.

After patiently waiting for two weeks since its inauguration, this Lady on a Vespa took a peek at the new Forever21 at Oxford Circus, London.

As I am a huge fan of the American high street, this arrival could not but make me tremble with emotion about the quirkiest, most affordable and fashion conscious of all! So here it comes the report!

Resembling their popular style, the store resembles those from Vegas or SFC although it´s true that the product range you can find here in London is far shorter than their American one, pity!

Don´t miss their blog, full of tips and hot deals!

Three floors of fash bargains, including coquette undies, adorable heeled dessert boots, tons of bags (also backpacks as they´re big news this season!) including this must have aztec printed canvas number (already in a highlighted place in my closet) and this hot batik woven top!


Always on time to leave us all salivating, River Island is guaranteed to have you queuing next season with one of the best AW11 high-street fashion collections we’ve seen for a while. Lace, feathers, silks and bold tribal prints dominate the new season fashion range according to River Island.

Be at chance to win FREE tickets to the hottest fashion show of the year,   The LOOK Show AW11. If you haven´t registered yet, go to this page and be able to preview the most coveted looks for the coming season.
