Before I went down to London for Fashion Week, I got a rather exciting email offering me a pair of UGG Australia boots to keep me comfortable on the cobbles of Somerset House. I’ve always wanted to own a pair of genuine UGGs, even though they’re not the most stylish of boots they sure are warm and cosy. They’re made with only the finest sheepskin which goes through six inspections before the boots are made so you don’t have to worry about the quality.
Unfortunately, while I was down at Fashion Week, the weather wasn’t the best. It rained both of the days we were out so I decided not to wear the boots as I didn’t want to risk ruining them – I made that mistake a few years ago with another pair of sheepskin boots. However, I have been wearing them at home when it’s been dry and they are the comfiest boots I’ve ever owned! My mom agrees and she seems to have claimed them at the moment as we have the same size feet, dammit. I’ve got my eye on a pair of the slippers now.
What do you think of UGG boots? Do you have a pair?
>On Friday, I was lucky enough to attend the launch of the world’s first piece of interactive clothing. Designed by Nokia and fashion designers Fyodor Golan
. This technologically advanced skirt is made entirely out of Nokia Lumia phones (there’s 80 of them worth £68,000!) and uses an app which mimics the way that fabric would fall on a normal skirt around a moving body. The skirt was modelled by the gorgeous Chloe Norgaard on a small runway before the actual Fyodor Golan show took place. We arrived at the show on a rickshaw courtesy of Three and got to enjoy a glass of bubbly while we marvelled at the skirt.
Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman are the men behind the name and after studying in different countries, both met in London where they decided to launch the label Fyodor Golan. I was so pleased to end up on the front row and managed to get some great photos of the show, it was so hard to choose which ones to post. My favourite pieces were the amazing glittery suit, the long pink coat and also the whole outfit that Chloe Norgaard was wearing during the show. I loved all of the pink, it’s one of my favourite colours and to see people dressed head to toe in it was great and so inspiring.
