Great fashion, eclectic food and the coolest music… Nowhere in the Capital exuberates ‘effortless cool’ like East London. Over the weekend, lovers of art, fashion and music gathered for a second instalment of ‘The Shoreditch Fashion Show’. #TSFS2013

It’s my party and I’ll eat the whole cake if I want to!!
Set against the back drop of Battersea Power Station, South London’s newest festival transformed a dreary SW concrete lot into the most colourful festival in the world.
If today you went for a run, put in some time at the gym, or followed a workout in front of the TV/computer screen- hurrah! Give yourself a huuuuuuge pat on the back!! (If you squeezed your glutes a couple of times whilst queuing for lunch you deserve a pat too, because every little helps!)
Where is the sun? Methinks its taking a vacation in the form of FaithChild’s jeans! I love the yellow denims, but love his jacket more!! Three things from Wednedsay evening are etched in my mind.. the Live UK Gospel Scene is second to none, (p)Leather is IN and rats in London have no shame!

Saturday morning, I woke Andy with a ‘gentle’ shake, and informed him that we were going to spend the afternoon at Alternative Fashion Week. He didn’t share my joy. ‘It’ll be fun’ I lied. The truth for him equated to me being forced to watch an afternoon of ‘match of the day’. ‘Plus we get to hang out with Bobby’ I informed. Bobby, a mutual friend was styling the first of 40 shows.
One eye open, and with tea on his mind, he agreed: there began the start of a day that turned out to be just a little bit wonderful.
Staring into my drink, I couldn’t help but feel a little out of place surrounded by ‘trendies’. The scene: Mid week in Shoreditch. A Live music venue/ bar. Stylish, but in an understated way. The kind of place where artists, musos and the creative, go to play. For the majority however, its an extension of work in the form of networking, or an opportunity to be inspired by each other and by music. I went alone, but didn’t stay alone for long..
