Kalopsia Assemble

On Thursday night, I went along to the launch of Assemble, a new textiles project by Kalopsia; a creative agency based in Leith, Edinburgh. Held at the hipster-central industrial-chic venue of The Biscuit Factory, the event was a relaxed affair with delicious craft beers, and a couple of explanatory and inspiring speeches from the founders thrown in. 

I was intrigued to learn more about the proposed ideas, as Kalopsia’s pop up collective The Facility sits not far from The Scottish Design Exchange where I work, but I never quite understood what the company’s visions were, so Thursday was an interesting and informative experience in a room full of passionate, creative people.

Hunted Vintage S/S 16 Collection

Last Thursday, blogger and stylist extraordinaire Natalie Messer (http://www.17thstreet.com) and I went along to the launch party of Hunted Vintage SS16 Collection. This vintage womenswear brand is curated by Nicole Perry, who I have discovered to be one of the nicest people in the fashion industry I’ve met so far! Photography by Ellie Morag.

Street Style Shoot with Louise Brown

On a rare sunny Scottish morning, I met up with Louise Brown, graphic designer, blogger (http://www.littlethings.org.uk) and photographer.

We trekked to one of the gorgeous closes and courtyards off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and snapped some street style shots. 

Despite a rather bad hair day on my part, and some interruptions from curious tourists, I am thrilled with how they’ve turned out! I can’t wait to do more projects like this in the future.

My shirt is from H&M, Bag and Dress from New Look, Boots from River Island, Trench Coat from Aquascutum and Necklace from Forever 21.

Vintage Heaven at Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair

This Saturday, Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair came to the beautiful Edinburgh Assembly Rooms, and jam packed it with stalls full of vintage and reworked fashion, as well as gorgeous jewellery and a retro make-up and hair service! I regularly work for Judy’s as a promoter, but this time I just shopped to my heart’s delight!
