If there is something I love about the
London Fashion Week is that they give the chance to emerging talents to showcase their creations like for example, Lucas Nascimento, Marques Almeida, Ashley Williams and one of my favorites Faustine Steinmetz.
NEWGEN is the BFC’s scheme to support these new talents financially and sponsored by Topshop.
Remember that we have really great designers from NEWGEN like Alexander Mcqueen, Erdem and Mary Katrantzou.
And now as usual I am gonna show you my favorite picks from this absolute amazing

One thing that took my attention from this NEWGEN designer Ryan Lo is that she never went to any Fashion or Design School to develop her art, she taught herself trough Youtube videos and that’s really amazing. The collection is girly and pretty with very soft colors and mermaid like concept. Photo via www.insideout.topshop.com
A whole sequins collection!!! What can I say… Ashish I die for the whole creation, I would take home all pieces, it is absolute mind-blowing. Photo via wgsn.tumblr.com

Today I decided to publish my last post from
London Coolhunting at Central Saint Martins. These pictures were taken at Somerset House a place to get lost…
This is a very important cultural centre with guided tours, exhibitions and library where I picked my latest books!!
Somerset House is also hosting London Fashion week from 2009 plus Fashion exhibitions as Showstudio:fashion revolution, very interesting visit if you are around London.
I wanna share with you the exhibition at the time I was there, Return of the Rudeboy… (amazing!!!)
