London Fashion Week: Ethologie by Jasper Garvida
23rd February 2015
This weekend, I had the pleasure of being invited to Jasper Garvida’s LFW show for Ethologie. Jasper and I collaborated on his SS15 Collection, so I knew I was in for a treat with his AW15 Collection. The show took place in ME Hotel’s Radio Bar, with fantastic views of the city.
When I arrived, I was treated like a VIP and ushered to my front row seat(!) where I received a goody bag of Schwarzkopf hair products and a glass of Bucks Fizz.
As everyone was being shown to their seats, I asked one of the organisers if I had time to nip to the loo quickly, which she said would be fine. I was very quick BUT to my utter embarrassment, when I exited the toilets I found the show had started and I had to walk down the catwalk to get to my seat. I can only apologise to the Model, who was very confused why someone half her size was rushing towards her and dived for a chair!
Luckily the clothes stole the show! Like this gorgeous striped coat that I desperately need in my life!
And this Snow Queen-esque dress and hat combo.
Jasper also designed some exclusive watches with Philip Stein, which added even more glamour to his slick, tailored collection.
It was also nice to see that some of the colours and textures from his SS15 Collection had followed through, like this stunning gold dress.
My favourite piece is this amazing purple dress with sequinned pattern in the shape of [what I think is] space invaders.
To end the show, Jasper led all the models round the catwalk, whilst they all took Selfies. Last year, Jasper took a selfie on the catwalk with all the press behind him, so it was very apt that he carried the joke on.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself and loved the excuse to take a trip to London!
