"I'm not really a fashion designer. I just love clothes. I've never been to design school. I can't sketch. I can't cut patterns and things. I can shorten things. I can make a dress out of a scarf." Kate Moss
On Monday night I made one of my mad dashes out of work at 5pm to Bangor (well as mad a dash I could do in the traffic!!) I was invited by my lovely friend Tara (who I actually stole my job from when she went to Australia travelling) to view the AW 13 collection and other collections of the gorgeous Northern Irish Fashion and accessories company, Pia Rossini!
I was helping out by taking part in 2 video blogs on how to wear their Resort collection Sarongs and their SS & AW scarfs & a sneaky peak at some SS14 prints. I love scarves, I love how they can completely change a look or an outfit. Usually I just fling it around my neck & away I go but Tara showed me 10 different ways to wear a scarf & 6 ways to wear a sarong.
It was nice to be introduced to new ways on how to wear scarves and I will def be trying the different looks in the future though some were a bit complication for a blond like me! Took me a couple of goes!
My make up was done by the lovely Leigh Crawford! Really simple natural make up, Leigh works in Clinque & has freelanced on hit HBO series The Game of Thrones & dozen of weddings and formals. I'd like to steal her & fold her up in my make up drawer so that she can just pop out to do my make up when she wants. I was so embarrassed as well cause I had a second head growing on my cheek and her skin was flawless. The things you notice when people are doing your make up!! Check her out on: Leigh Crawford Make up
With each new styling, I had a new scarf & I probably paid more attention to the actual scarves than I did to what I was doing with it! They were all so nice, colours were gorgeous! The Pia Rossini scarves are available across the UK in department stores, online retailers & independent boutiques. It's not just scarves, it's gloves, wraps, hats, snoods, kaftans, dresses. To be honest, I did get gifted a few gorgeous pieces so keep an eye out for me parading my new bits & pieces! (It's gifted so its ok!!!)
