LFW in an LBD

I was absolutely delighted to get an invitation from fabulous Accessories Designer Nadia Minkoff to the Nico Didonna catwalk show at London Fashion Week!  I love Nadia's work & I was dying to see how she would accessorise the show.

The venue was the opulant Baku Restaurant & Bar in London's Knightsbridge and it was full of the most beautiful, glamorous  people I have ever seen! As expected from this Designer to the stars, Nico Didonna's show, both womenswear and menswear, was quite simply fabulous. His inspiration was 'the essence of freedom through modern jazz music' & to a fitting soundtrack from the likes of Michael Bublé, we were all transfixed by the glamorous, stylish show. Nadia's accessories were a real highlight; sophisticated glamour at it's very best, featuring statement earrings, long bejewelled necklaces cascading down the bare backs of the models & her gorgeous signature clutch bags.

Alongside Nancy Dell'Olio, Nicola McLean, London Socialite Basia Briggs & the fantastical Pandemonia Panacea (the 7ft tall conceptual artist) we sipped vintage wine at the after-party & enjoyed a live performance from US singer Kady Z! It was a delight to meet lovely Nadia & such a treat to be there on her special night!

For such a glamorous occasion, I wanted to wear something cool, stylish and effortless; I chose a beautiful Armani Exchange faux leather shift dress. Featuring a scoop neckline, an exposed back zipper, a sheer back and pleating to the back, it was the perfect canvas to showcase one of my favourite Nadia Minkoff pieces, her iconic London Eye necklace. I finished my look with towering black shoe boots, a smoky eye & a big smile!
