Style ETC Spring Launch Party . . . . better late then never!

Better late then never, here are a few pics from the spring Style etc launch party held at Harvey Nichols Manchester. Thanks to Pearl Westwoods London Fashion Week write up on page 12 and 13, our Studded Juliette portfolio has itself a lovely picture!
The Launch party was such a fun and fab night, and it was lovely to meet the big wigs behind the mag Gemma Latham and Anna Louise Gilhoole.

The Style etc team . . . I want Anna's Karen Millen Skirt!!

My bag (Ophelia Portfolio Clutch) having a little chat with Pearls clutch (Gatton Mini Clutch)

Before we headed over to the launch party me and Kate went for a cheeky little bite to eat at one of our fave spots in the Northern Quarter Teacup. I HAD to have the flour-less chocolate cake. It would be rude not to.

Kate looking a bit mischievous

I wore my Ingenious Jewellery silver charm bracelet, if you've not heard of them before go check out their website, you'll want it all!

I love having a nosy at what people carry around in their bags. Their are a few great Tumblr accounts dedicated to this type of imagery (love this one). So just because I think the layout looks pretty, I've jumped on the band wagon and documented a few days of what I carry around. These were random days spread out over a few months. A few of these were sample bags, just testing them out before I decide to go ahead and get a batch made.

AW13 Behind the scenes

Last Tuesday was the day, our AW13 photoshoot happened. Above you can see Hollie and Jess working hard in the room we hired out for the day. This is where the make up and hair got sorted and we eventually moved into some really amazing locations around Manchester School of Art. Make up artist Becky Hanks created some fantastic looks which will be posted here when the final lookbook images are released. You can see inspiration behind the photoshoot at my last blog post here.

Clothes on the rail by Topshop, Helmut Lang, Whistles, Zara, H&M, River Island

Keep tuned for the final lookbook and clutch bag range!
