Christmas spirit

Growing up in Switzerland has allowed me to enjoy many many white Christmases. Having snow on Christmas day is significant for me.

I like it,I want it, I NEED IT!

I need the snow to get the festive spirit. No Christmas song or mince pie has the same effect on me, like a few inches of snow on the streets.

The fact that I haven't seen a single snowflake yet this year has left me in a very confused state of mind. I see the date, I know that there are only 4 days left till Christmas, but I just don't feel like it.

Normally when this happens, I just trick my mind with baking loads and loads of christmas biscuits. The smell of them takes me normally straight into a "oh-my-god-it's-christmas-WHEEEERE-ARE-MY-PRESENTS?"-mood. 

Due to a lack of time and money my oven stayed cold this year and there are no star- and tree-shaped biscuits to be found in my kitchen.

So there was only one option left to bring back the Christmas spirit in time:

The perfect Christmas jumper.

So here they are, my saviours of this years Christmas.
Nothing can stop me now from hopping along Western road and singing "Dominic the donkey" (great song!) out loud all day.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Sussex Fashion Society - Charity Fashion Show

After months of hard work, heaps of organisation, preparation and rehearsals, the Charity fashion show in Aid of "breast cancer care" finally took place.

The show was organised by the Sussex Fashion Society. "Launched in 2011, Sussex Fashion Society aims to embrace the diversity of student style through providing a fresh and exciting platform for members to express their interests in all things fashion."


Whilst the people slowly started to arrive at the basement, the backstage was absolutely bustling. Apart from everyone trying on their outfits, the models,dancers and organisers had to get their hair & make-up done. 

Not much time was left, but that was no problem for the outstanding hair-stylists at headmasters.
Within no time, they created beautiful vintage-looking hairstyles on each of the models, which left the audience stunned.


Finally the show was ready to start. As an opening of the show, the audience could enjoy a live performance from the University of Sussex Street Dance Troupe Voom Ka.

Sussex Fashion Society’s first fashion production was finally happening. The show featured some of the most exciting boutiques in Brighton, such as Beyond Retro, Tramp Vintage, Snoopers Attic and spectacular dress design from Brighton designer Oh my Honey.

The show was a full succes, which left not only the audience pleased, but also the organisers. All proceeds went to Breast Cancer Care for Breast Cancer awareness month.

I know I normally tell you about my recent shopping-results or some cool kid I met on the street. But all I can think of today is food. My stomach is gnarling away whilst I'm trying really hard to ignore the lack of nourishment in my stomach, so I can concentrate on my work.


Instead of being engaged with my project I find myself staring at pictures of delicious looking food, wishing Domino's Pizza would deliver straight into my college library. As it turns out, I'm not allowed eating in here (Oh damn you, you silly rules!), so instead of eating, I'm just staring.

Oh well, at least it is a feast for my eyes.

Daniella Christina - Fashion show

Last friday I was one of the few lucky ones who were invited to the Launch Fashion Show of Daniella Christina at The Basement, Brighton.

Whilst waiting for the show to start, there were plenty of options to keep yourself busy. Between the gaps of the two live bands - AMiTY and Rocket Summers - I had the opportunity to have a look at the Art exhibition on the side from Saffron Reichenbacker, Scared Stitches and at the amazing hats from Lizzy Lock.

After all the guests arrived and everyone was served with a drink and a goodie bag, the show was about to start. Seated exactly in the front row, I had the perfect view of the models going past.
You could clearly see the inspiration of vintage tailoring, but at the same time the outfits were "smart, with a new edgy style".


The outfits were very feminine, but still smart and flattering and designed to be worn both day and evening. Despite being unique and eye-catching the collection had a strong grip on reality, meaning the clothes could easily be worn in everyday situations.

The big round of applause at the end of the show was proof of the success of the whole evening. After a quick "Thank You" from Daniella herself, we all left inspired.

Select pieces from the range are now available to buy at ASOS marketplace.
