Jonathan Saunders LFW Fekkai Video

"The hot ticket for day two at London Fashion Week certainly belonged to Jonathan Saunders. The Scottish designer has always had a huge influence during London Fashion Week, and this season was no different. Taking over an open office space in Paddington, the room was lit with fluorescent lights as cat-eyed models slinked through the room.

With their messy hair clipped away from their faces, the theatrics of Saunders show solely belonged to the clothes. Beautiful and romantic prints, delicate, flowing chiffon – Jonathan Saunders did what he does best and designed for the female body. Moving away from the tailored silhouettes of past seasons, this season the shapes were looser – softly pleated skirts fell just under the knee, printed or finely sprinkled with polka dots.

New York Fashion Week – NYFW Hair Bargain!

If you’ve watched any of the shows at NYFW you’ll have spotted some truly spectacular hair and make-up on show. One of the easiest looks to recreate on a budget is the hair from Marc by Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham’s SS12 collections.

Marc By Marc Jacobs: ‘It's a bit of a departure for Marc’, says Guido, ‘it's more grownup this season with an actual up-do instead of leaving it loose and or just a simple pony'. To achieve the desired look, Palau folded the lengths of a ponytail upward, securing it with a silver Goody Barrette. The lengths were then flipped back over the  base and secured around the mid section with another Goody Barrette. “It’s girly but sophisticated,” said Pala

Victoria Beckham:  Guido created a Catherine  Deneuve inspired half up-half down  style, which he secured using a Goody Barrette. The look channeled elegance with a masculine twist. The simplicity of the  Barrettte perfectly reflected Victoria Beckham’s sophisticated collection.

The best thing of all? These Goody Barrettes are just £2.19 for a pack of 3 at Morrisons!
