#26 La Geneve North Fashion Event

Yay everything finally seems to be working again in my blogging world – there are no more blue screens or word fiascos…phew!

So to finish off with my event posts for the week – last Thursday I attended the LGN fashion event at the exclusive Valmont Club in Chelsea. LGN stands for La Geneve North - an events company that specialises in organising fashion events for discerning clients. It’s run by the fabulous and inspirational Yolande Letshou who has an extensive background in fashion buying and journalism (I’m hoping to pin her down for an interview soon)…

The event itself was an evening to showcase collections of emerging and independent designers to an audience of buyers, press, public (fashion enthusiasts) and other fashion professionals.

There were four designers at the event and they all had some fantastic pieces:

First up was Petra Taoujni – whose collection consisted of digital print with exaggerated shapes such as big shoulders and collars. Check out the images below (sorry about the poor quality btw) you can also view more of her work at www.iqons.com/Petra%20Taoujni

Second up was Hannah Marie Hutchison – her evening wear collection has a Grecian theme running through the designs, so they can be draped to compliment and flatter the female form. Check out the images below and if you would like to view more of her work her website www.hmhcouture.com/ will be coming soon.

Next up was Monica Paracha - who creates fusion outfits and accessories that are steeped in eastern tradition but also infused with western trends. Check out the images below and to view more of her work, see her website http://www.monicacouture.com/ .

The final designer was Tanielle Lobo – and she also happened to be my favourite. I fell in love with her handbags and clutches which boated exquisite hand carved wooden handles of patterns combining art nouveau and Indian motifs. Her clothes and prints are bold, colourful and infused with embellishment and Indian craftsmanship. The fabrics are all hand-woven tweeds and silks from India.
