British Fashion Awards 2013

This Year, I had the privilege of attending the British Fashion Awards 2013 with the Founder of Fashion Strikes, Angela Udemba!

Held at the stunning London Coliseum, and hosted by a list of A-list fashion stars, the night was every bit as fabulous as you might imagine! Fashion’s finest under one spectacular roof, celebrating the very best of British talent, it was a night I will never forget!

The dress code for the evening was Black Tie and British and despite not getting the memo (Tickets arrived late!) my take on the evening was a more subdued look at black tie, with British inspiration; something that was reflected on the red carpet at last night’s event. Inspired by sixties Britain, I went for a monochrome theme in black and white dogtooth print crop trousers by Zara, suede sling back platforms by Steve Madden and a white shirt teamed with a padded cocoon coat from Topshop and a Jaeger bowling bag (a look I sported in my last blog post but hadn’t had the chance to wear out yet!)
