I was invited by a friend last Sunday to attend a local fashion show  held in Birmingham. The event was called Runway UK. A handful of designers gathered at Players to showcase their clothing lines. Food and wine was provided for those in VIP booths and a bar for the spectators seated along the runway.
I chose to wear and all black outfit with a pop of red for drama. Here is a closer look at what I wore.

These PVC jeans are one of my favourite go-to bottoms when it comes to jazzing up an all black outfit. The texture is loud and stylish! I paired them with a simple black round neck top and a black faux fur gillet. I didn't fancy wearing high heels, so opted for these kitten heeled sling-backs. This outfit was simple, comfortable and stylish...the 3 things I try to remain :).

To add some flavour, I threw on this hot red coat. Now ladies, these long floaty jackets have been in style since the fall. They have been a huge trend since Kim K was snapped wearing the famous camel and tan waterfall coat. I came across this dupe in a corner store and bagged it for a quick buck. It isn't has high quality as I would like but is pretty decent for the price. I think they're a great piece to have in the wardrobe. They're light weight, easy breezy and quite timeless.

TOP- Uniqlo
GILLET- Internacionale
COAT- Marketplace
BAG- Camden

During this fashion show, I definitely left quite pensive.
The standard we set for ourselves  not only stems from the things we're inspired by, but our aspirations. It takes a level of bravery and confidence to venture into entrepreneurship, however it is important that the standard is high. To produce a range of clothing and sell it to an audience requires creativity, great work ethic and a mind for business. When tackling a clothing line, it is also important that you have a target audience in mind and a range of clothing that is ready to be presented.
The Runway UK had designers who were definitely enthusiastic about their vision but in my opinion didn't quite grasp the quality aspect. A visionary takes into consideration, all aspects of what it is they are presenting to the world. Fashion and style go hand in hand but style will get you recognised, so it is essential that the quality of style is thorough. (hopefully that made sense)

STYLE TIP- Decide what it is you want (to look like) and go for it! Don't lose sight of your vision, but take your time!
