Bootie Call A/W 2011

It is nearly that time of year again ladies - summer is coming to an end (well we never really had one here in Ireland!) and the autumn/winter 2011 collections are arrving in stores. My key find for every autumn/winter is a fabulous pair of boots!

Here are some of my favourite finds from the 2011 collection :

Rick Owens - Leather wedge knee boots
Maison Martin Margiela - Ruched Leather ankle boots
Alezander McQueens - Skull flat boots
Jimmy Choos - Youth Leather Biker Boots

Fingers crossed I win the lotto this week so I can buy even one of these sensational designs!

The countdown for London Fashion Week 2012

As the Autumn/Winter 2011 collections begin to arrive in stores accross the globe, designers and buyers have in fact Spring/Summer collections on their minds. With just over a month until London Fashion Week we are all wondering what is the NEW TREND going to be?

Irish designers including John Rocha and Paul Costello will be return to the stage. However it seems to be the young and super talented Simone Rocha who is taking London by storm. With her innovative brogues to her boyish styled jackets, her A/W 2011 collection was extremely well received with numerous boutiques and stores accross Europe snapping them up. We are all very exciting to see her new line!
