Hero’s Eyes

One’s to Watch is the most anticipated show of Fashion Scout’s schedule at LFW and is the opportunity the see the creme de la creme of global emerging design talent! IMG_0871 It might not be the first time you’ve heard the name Minju Kim. In fact, you may have seen her capsule collection stocked in the likes of Opening Ceremony or in selected H&M stores in Europe, US, Japan and South Korea after being awarded the 2013 H&M design award! She has even collaborated with…wait for it…Disney! This season at Fashion Scout, Kim officially presented her first collection and I was so excited to be invited to attend the show, meet Minju Kim and view her collection up close! The concept behind ‘Hero’s Eyes’ is courage, inspired by her 1980’s superhero idol. Minju’s collection is one of magical powers, strength and bravery visible through punchy bright colour blocking and bold prints. Minju focuses on the powerful women by highlighting the female form in a sweetheart neckline silk dress and peplum, but throws in structured pieces that mean business. And no superhero would be complete without a headpiece! And these crowns are to die for….and don’t forget to check out the metallic red shoes complete with bunny ears, and my personal favourite; the balaclava! I’ll let the collection speak for itself. Here are some pics I snapped at the show! IMG_0697IMG_0693IMG_0696IMG_0695IMG_0698IMG_0702IMG_0703

Stylist in the making…

This blog has been in the making for the past 3 years, so I ask myself ‘where do I begin?’…I guess I’ll begin at the beginning…
I got my first real taste for fashion at around age 4 when I customised my best friend’s school jumper with a pair of scissors and gave him a lego haircut to match…
My first real taste of working in fashion came much later, when a few years ago I was made Fashion and Beauty Director at Fusion@London, a new start up fashion events company, (now known as Fashion Strikes) the final fashion, music and dance spectacle for which I sourced designers, styled, dressed and showcased at The Troxy last year!
Here are some photos of me hard at work…
