BOWLARAMA is the new AW19 collection by LOUD Apparel, which pays homage to the great popularity of bowling as a sport, the billion-dollar industry and the “golden age of bowling” in America, during the ’70s & ’80s.
Bold graphics, bowling shoe prints, random graphics placements of rolling balls and pins, fun and quirky elements of the game married with the iconic characteristics of LOUD; the monochrome black and white colours, signature of the brand, combined with an unusual shift into colours for AW19, with mustard yellows, green storm, racing reds make for an unexpectedly fresh result for the Loud Apparel this season.

A capsule collection of womenswear is present again for a 2nd season to twin with the girls’ styles and create a “Mini-Me” look. #twinningiswinning

Being a mother is something magical. You start being one with your baby, it is part of your body, then you have a baby that is totally dependent on you, which you love that human being more than anything you have ever known and you then raise them to be independent and fly as far as they want to go.
I am now pregnant with my 4th child and my eldest daughter is 13 years old next month and has become my best friend, my partner, she knows what she wants and where to take her life. I listen to her and accompany her, we are very close to each other but not dependent, although I am still her guide.
I am about to relive all the stages from the newborn to the beginning of adolescence and I wanted to portray it, like an ode to being a mother. I wanted to include my little girl, because one day they maybe want to carry a baby in their bodies, maybe they don’t, maybe my boy who has 9 is the one who wants to have kids more than her, but anyway, I think in our culture we didn’t speak enough, we didn’t say enough about how we feel being a mother, a father and all the feelings and I want my daughters to know exactly how I am feeling.
No one tells us what it is like being a mother, the love, attachment, each stage of childhood, from birth to adolescence, every change seems very hard, that we lose them, we lose our little child, we lose a part of us, but often what they become is even more magical as they become their selfs, with all the power and lessons we teach them, what we have given them. Photography is my way to tell her how important it is for me to be her mother, how much I love them, how beautiful it is in each and every stage.
Here is the new addition to our family Cyan with his three siblings.
When we compare the next generation to one of even thirty years ago, the difference is paramount. Whilst the development in technology and science continues to exceed expectations and create a modern world with capabilities that at one time would only have existed in a sci-fi movie, the emphasis on superficial beauty, cyber followers as opposed to physical friends, and the ownership of material goods overwhelms young minds.
After capturing countless beautiful faces over the years, Andrea and I realise beauty cannot be defined by one person or being. It is simply beautiful. It is this, alongside the ongoing debate of Brexit and immigration into Britain, which inspired our editorial. To be clear, Raw Beauty isn’t an attempt to broadcast our political beliefs, it’s merely a reflection of the power of cultures, races and external countries coming together. This is the new Britain, the one where a child’s skin colour is a reason to complement, not segregate them. Where Tilly could be found aged eight months in an orphanage in China, be adopted by British parents, and now shoot campaigns for prestigious British brands such as Burberry.
If there is one thing, we should be teaching our new generation it is to be unique. To stand out from the crowd and to embrace all that is different.
FIMI’s Kids Fashion Week hosted several catwalk shows in Madrid on Friday 5th July at Pavillion 14 of Madrid’s Fairgrounds. FIMI is the International Children’s and Young People’s Fashion Fair in Spain; with nearly 200 national companies participating, with some participating in the fashion shows and sharing styles from their SS20 collections.
There was a fabulous selection of prestigious brands involved in the catwalk show giving us a sneak peek preview into their SS20 collections. Here are some of my favourites from the show…
The absolutely AMAZING Agatha Ruiz De La Prada (below). Season after season we continue to fall head over heels in love. If you’re looking for FUN, ENERGY and FABULOUSNESS then this is the brand for you. Agatha, you are the queen of statement gorgeousness.
Gorgeous metallics paired with camo from PLEASE. AND can we please take a moment to appreciate those super fabulous furry sliders. The whole look was just WOW!
I loved the Energiers Kids Of The World collection. There was this amazing metallic star skirt paired with a sequin bumbag that got the whole crowd snapping away.
For the disco divas of the world you with fall in LOVE with Querida Philippa’s collection. Every piece will have you at hello! I am sold on every single piece and are already wondering if they come in our size…
AND Oh Soleil@ohsoleilspain didn’t showcase on the catwalk but their iconic swimwear is just beyond gorgeous. The mix of metallic and bold finishes are perfect for summer and the quality of the pieces is finished to the highest standard. Designer Mercedes was absolutely lovely and a pleasure to meet.
Traditionally the first week of July is the Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris. We were honoured to be invited by the French brand Bleu Comme Gris to their Fashion Show presentation of their new Fall Winter 2019 collection, held at the iconic and elegantly refined Ritz Paris.
On the day before the show, we were spoiled by a very special meeting and fitting at their boutique. I was almost impossible to choose an outfit considering how beautiful all their clothes are!
Bleu Comme Gris is a true boutique brand. In addition to the highest quality and trendiest design, you can really feel that special designer touch in every unique piece – something you will not find in bigger brands. Their exclusively nuanced service from welcome greeting to the remarkably curated collection, to the grand finale with the ribbon on the package will satisfy the most discerning and spoiled customer.
The new autumn collection is made with bold rich colours and finest fabrics like velvet, silk, brocade and furs. Cool accessories like knee socks with sporty stripes made of lurex, add a cool touch to the whole look making the outfits more modern and fashionable.
One of the cutest parts of the show was a girl with a real live dog, which perfectly matched her outfit.
I think the collection will be loved by everyone who values elegance and style, but still demands comfort – real French chic! These are all exceptional pieces that can be worn in everyday life as well as for special occasions.

The girls and I hike up the mountain pass and quickly find ourselves at the foot of monstrous boulders, popular with the local climbing crowd. While we aren’t here to test such a feat, the girls take part in their own expression of victory, chanting “Queen of the Rock.” Our behemoth friends answer back in echo, reminding us of our diminutive stature within their shadows.
Dressing for an easy summer day, we reach for the French brand, hello Simone to keep us cool and comfortable in playful Hawaiian-inspired prints. An oversized layering sweatshirt and drawstring terry shorts create a nonchalant look that is both modern and practical. A cherry red top is a favourite from the collection and brightens our day with a bit of spunk.
There is an adventure to be had among these rocks. We dance under their protective cover today, tomorrow may find us learning our way up their ledges. Either scenario would surely grant these girls the self-proclaimed title, “Queen of the Rock.”
