FROM THE CATWALK, TO THE STREETS TO THE JEWELS : A MAGPIE @ LFW AW14 (PART 1)
My first show of London Fashion Week AW14 erupted in the sounds of London’s infamous soundtrack; the rain! Then bursting through the shroud of darkness came the fiery pillar box reds of Lulu Liu’s models. London Fashion Week was off to an explosive start. & the drama and excitement continued throughout the five days as I watched the runway shows, snapped the street stylers and relished in the jewels.
Here is what I got up to on Day One …
Now on to my favourite part of the day … the Jewels. The Designer showrooms at Somerset House was heaven personified – room after room of amazing jewellery. It was great catching up with some Magpie favourites who you would have seen featured on the blog before such as the divine French label; Anfray & Anfray and the show stopping rings of Kattri.

Alena Anfray is a designer who well and truly knows her rings and has impeccable taste.As I was talking to her I spotted these exquisite pieces. I have no words for their beauty so I will simply leave you to admire them as I did.

After the showrooms it was on to my mecca of fashion week; The Rock Vault.
My favourite designers in the Rock Vault had to be, Imogen Belfield, new comers to the blog Yunus & Eliza and of course my jewel Idol Fernando Jorge who I had the honour of meeting. It was totally a jewellery groupie moment. Ahhh the jewels of Fernando Jorge sure do make a Magpie giddy.
Here is a look at the pieces of my favourite Rock Vault Jewellers.
