sarah burton for fashion queen.

some of the many "competing" designs

For several months there has been hundreds of designers flocking to their drawing tables and dressing mannequins to create the wedding dress of the century. And a lot of hearts were broken when the "winner" was revealed. My heart however was fully joyful as the project was given to one of my favourite designers at the moment, Sarah Burton. Since being confirmed to be the new Creative Director for Alexander McQueen she has baffled a lot of us with her amazing creations and today she did it again.

200 years of British royal history and the heritage of the Arts & Crafts tradition was incorporated in the wedding dress that had a 3 meter train. The Royal School of Needlework worked closely with the Alexander McQueen atelier to create a hand-embroided, sculpted bodice that Kate wore over her Victorian-style corset. The hand-stitchers had to wash their hands every 30 minutes and change the needle every 3 hours to keep the lace and thread clean and pristine. In addition to all of this, Sarah Burton hand-picked every bit of fabric used on the dress herself, ensuring only the best material in the UK was used. Now thats hard work!

So big up Sarah Burton! I'll make sure to save your details for my own future plans .. :))

we have a new princess!!

awww .. 

Behold .. Duke & Duchess of Cambridge

Just watched the ceremony and thought it was really cute actually. And the wedding dress, by Sarah Burton (for Alexander McQueen) was stunning! More pictures of that later. But celebrations are being carried out in every corner of the world now so I do not want to break the festivities myself .. I am therefore going to hit the shops. That's my way of celebrating .. Lol. Ciao for now / P. x

Off for 4 days now .. sweet mother of royal weddings!! Starting it with a shopping spree tomorrow .. maybe even something from this website? We'll see ... Love / P. x

aw11 .. making my tummy tingle.

Been sitting for the past 2 hours and watching the catwalk shows from Paris Fashion Week .. a sea of intelligence and artworks introducing the colour palettes and forms of AW 2011. The majority of the design houses no longer have their original designers, yet all of them have managed to embrace the history of the brands and still play with the thoughts of the modern world. Dark, theatrical fetishism feathering through the Louis Vuitton show is as beautiful as the medieval inspired couture at the house of Victor & Rolf.

My personal favourites where Sarah Burton's creations for Alexander McQueen and the punk-sexy embellished & metallic work of Balmain. Absolutely amazing!!

The wait is over .. The enviromentally friendly collection has finally hit all the H&M stores worldwide. The launch was due to be on the 14th but most stores (at least in London) launched it a day before. Was flipping the floor in our Harrods concession on Wednesday morning so got a first glance at the new pop up department in the Knightsbridge store. Here are my favourite pieces:

have you ever seen a cupcake parlor this cool?

Walking past Soho yesterday we spotted this bakery, Cox Cookies & Cake. It's situated on Brewer Street, quite close to Madame JoJo's and is a collaboration between renowned shoedesigner Patrick Cox and Eric Lanlard, London's finest cake maker. It can't get better than that right? Well WRONG because this place is absolutely frikkin amazing. Due to my healthy regime (lol) I didn't step inside but the window displays were showcasing a small friction of what you could find inside. From sexy abs cupcakes to bunny cupcakes just in time for Easter. It's actually hilarious .. and look soooo tasty! And the new collaboration has had a lot of press coverage too. Giving my diet a couple of months and then that's where you will be finding me!

Go check it out guys! Love / P. x
