Kurt Geiger fashion show on The Avenue, Spinningfields...

This week I was lucky enough to assist in organising Kurt Geiger's catwalk show on The Avenue, Manchester's luxury style quarter.

Showcasing the hottest picks from their latest collection Kurt Geiger collaborated with a number of high-end retailers including; Ted Baker Pashion, DKNY, Calvin Klein and L.K.Bennett to reveal a number of stunning outfits exclusively available on The Avenue.

Making her way down the runway the model flaunted a number of beautiful looks perfect for the Christmas party season, ranging from a decadent twist on the classic rocker look to a pretty and feminine yet chic ensemble. 

Fur clutch worn with leather gloves and black dress all by Calvin Klein

Black patent clutch worn with silver necklace and red dress all by L.K.Bennett

Burgundy faux fur collar worn with full skirted coat both by Ted Baker Pashion

Beige faux fur coat worn with black velvet skinny cigarette trousers both by Ted Baker Pashion

Next to hit the catwalk was this very Kate Middleton-esque signature L.K.Bennett look.

Purple dress worn with silver necklace and tweed cropped jacket all by L.K.Bennett

Before the show came to a close with one of KG's main autumn/winter trends, equestrian.

Georgia May Jagger...

With quite possibly the coolest parents on the planet, Georgia May Jagger has not only grown up with the rock and roll lifestyle the rest of us can only dream of, but she also has the looks and style to go with it. 

Having inherited her mother's stunning wavy blonde hair and her father's famous full lips it was inevitable that from a young age Georgia May was destined for a career in modelling. At just seven years old she was already being dressed by the likes of Vivienne Westwood, and this summer the whole nation saw her strutting her stuff down the catwalk for the London 2012 Olympics closing ceremony, alongside the world's most iconic supermodels including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. 

Although she is just 20 years old the stunning model already has quite a number of impressive brands on her CV including; Rimmel London, H&M and most recently alongside her mother, Sunglass Hut.

Georgia May's gap-toothed smile has already become quite iconic across the nation and I predict that it's only matter of time before she becomes the most famous Jagger of the family.

Boots...the autumn/winter 2012 Story...

Last week I learnt the hard way that it is officially winter...

Braving the outdoors in my studded slipper I left the house for work, only to find that within approximately 10 minutes of leaving my toes no longer had feeling. It's safe to say that the shoes have gone in to hibernation for a good few months and it's officially time to go on the hunt for the perfect pair of winter boots.
