FASHION SUNDAY @ OVAL SPACE

Fashion Sunday is a relatively new happening in London town. Hosted in the Oval Space, the first Sunday of each month, it is essentially a fashion market where upcoming and slightly more established London based designers get to sell their ware direct to the public.

The good thing is they aren’t trying to shift old tat no one gives a damn about (jokes), some of the stuff is  is current season and you’ll be getting this at a discounted rate. We’re not talking bargain basement but it’s cheaper than what it would retail for in the shops. Talking about shops, although some of the designers have international distribution, they don’t actually sell in the UK, so it’s a rather excellent way of getting your paws on some cool rather exclusive threads.

I have mad love for Kitty Joseph – especially digging their palm prints for SS14: IMG_7396 So I hooked myself up with a sweet tee and hand printed socks IMG_7410 IMG_7415 Here’s Kitty in her get up looking hella fly IMG_7387 IMG_7384 IMG_7388 And sporting a Pac Man snap back from Keely Hunter. On a side note, feeling all the Pac Man pieces out and about at the mo including all the shoes and accessories from ACNE

Shirts are my thing, so nearly had a fashion induced orgasm when I laid my eyes on Silken Favours silk shirts; they are loud and definitely not for mousy types. IMG_7434 IMG_7426 IMG_7427 Vicki, the designer is just a fun loving great chick and we got talking for a while about inspiration for her designs and all that jazz; she spoke of  how she’d made a bespoke shirt for her sister who is in a band; adding little tambourines on the collar and other personal motifs. So, one can order a bespoke shirt that is super personal – I loved this because it makes things feel less transient, it’s something you’ll keep and treasure and not toss out with ‘last season’ gear (not that I ever do that, cue – massive hoarder). IMG_7431 IMG_7433 I particularly loved the cowboy meets club tropicana shirts. When I’ve saved up my pennies, I will be all over these. IMG_7436 IMG_7438 She also sells scarves and homeware that are stocked in Liberty and a few other spots. IMG_7424 I’m also a massive jewellry junky and was into all the pieces from Clarice Price Thomas ‘Time’ collection. IMG_7419 IMG_7421 IMG_7418 They’ve got tunes and even bubbles… IMG_7464 so you can swig and shop. Tuuuuurrrrrn up! It wasn’t crazy busy the Sunday I went because the weather was shit and I’m sure people were cosying up in bed with the Sunday blues. IMG_7468 This rooftop as you can see was deserted but come summer, it will be heaving no doubt and hopefully the guys at Fashion Sunday will trade better. http://www.ovalspace.co.uk/blog/2014/1/welcome-to-oval-space-fashion-sunday
