We did this shoot for the Hungarian design store last month because we needed some pictures for press purposes. I decided I better use these images shot by Gyorgy Szokolay on my blog not only because I love the photos but because I want to show you all the amazing clothes by different Hungarian designers: like this trench coat from Imogen! Lovely twist on the traditional trench.
at Allpress Espresso in Shoreditch on Redchurch street. This coffeehouse is famous for its great tasting coffees so now that we moved into the area we had to go and check for ourselves.
I have to say we were not dissapointed. Au contraire, this place lives up to the expectations! I took what I take always, cafe americano. It is served as it is supposed to be served, one shot espresso in a bigger cup with aportion of hot water on the side, that you add according to your taste.
It was really good.
There are so many confusions around coffee preparations as I experience it. Cafe americano, which is also called a short black, comes with only one shot of espresso and some more hot water. And when it comes with 2 shots of espresso and an equal amount of hot water, it is called a long black. Long black is too strong for me so if I can't have short black I get filtered coffee: which is made with a drip brewer (dripping hot water through a filter filled with your coffee of choice, this is what you see in American movies).
How do you like your coffee?

This is another one of my favourite AW13 trends. Wear a skirt or rather a dress over your trousers. Try to go for matching at least in colours.
FUR & FUR DETAILS
CARVEN | CELINE | BLUMARINE | ANTONIO BERARDI
FRANCESCO SCOGNAMIGLIO | LANVIN | F. SCOGNAMIGLIO | CHRISTOPHER KANE | EUDON CHOI | PRADA | FR. SCOGNAMIGLIO | DRIES VAN NOTEN
you might have seen if you looked at the images from the aw13 shows,
that different types of fur and play with fur on garments was used by
many well and lesser known designers. Celine and Blumarine made a fur dress and Carven and Berardi fur jumpers; but my favourite was the use of fur as trims on clothing. Such
as around the neck, as cuffs, or on the hems of a coat or dress .
FLOOR LENGTH OUTERWEAR
EMILIO DE LA MORENA | ANTONIO BERARDI | BLUMARINE | - | MIU MIU | HAIDER ACKERMANN | ACNE | DAMIR DOMA | VERSACE
Get a super long coat, jacket, waistcoat or cardigan this season. Get it with fur trims, like above, in red as below somewhere or pink as in a previous post. Get it in tartan print to get the grunge look or a very simple one if you are into the sporty/minimal looks.
VERSACE | CHEAP & CHIC | ANTHONY VACARELLO | VERSACE | VERSACE | GIVENCHY
Take a punk and put in a room full of sexy clothes: short skirts, tight tops and heels. Imagine the result!
JUNYA WATANABE | SAINT LAURENT | BCBG | SAINT LAURENT

TOPSHOP skirt as dress | VINTAGE cardigan | ZARA sandals
Outfit I wore last Thursday to a launch party at Hellobaby.
Just a simple composition of the simplest things in my wardrobe. Strappy sandals, strapless dress and a cardi.
This outfit is so simple but very trendy. To recreate the look, wear a floor length cardigan or coat (very much in, this coming season) make sure this is the centre of attention and your dress and footwear are very simple.
I used to work at Browns where I got the position of
merchandising and styling one of their branches while working as a sales assistant. I was responsible for
it during my gap year at Uni. I became very interested in how it really works as I knew that sense of style is not enough to do this job. So instead of learning from a book or from a tutor at Uni I was lucky to have Browns mentors teaching me all the skills, secrets and technical knowledge needed to work as a VM in a multibrand atmosphere. I am forever thankful for that opportunity.
This is why, the beginning of this month, I was invited to work with the Hungarian Design store in London as a fashion assistant.
I helped in creating a fashionable atmosphere in the shop where we received a huge bunch of unedited collections from Hungarian designers. Unfortunately the previous fact and problematique fixtures of the store space did not allow for a brand by brand merchandising. Anyways the clothes looked really great next to each other at the end so I guess I managed to make a stylish order in the shop out of a stylish mess.
