London Fashion Week: SORAPOL SS15

On 16/09/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

I’ve been busy working backstage at LFW this year, but I did manage to catch one show!

SORAPOL is the British fashion brand of Bangkok-born designer Sorapol Chawaphatnakul, with London based artist Daniel Lismore acting as creative director. SORAPOL combines skilled
craftsmanship with artisan couture techniques to make ready-to-wear luxury garments.

Contemporary African culture meets French renaissance For SS15. The catwalk consisted of tribal inspired prints, embellished jackets which were beautifully tailored yet super quirky and a soft pastel palette, which featured darker tones on boisterous yet undeniably elegant ball gowns. The venue The Royal College of Surgeons was cool, classic and romantic, just like the collection. Sorapol and Daniel never cease to bring something new to the table, whilst striking the right balance between creativity and couture. Most of the models also rocked a signature head piece, in true SORAPOL fashion.

Charity shop chic at LFW

On 16/09/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

Back of The Wardrobe Recreate London Fashion Week Looks SS15 in British Red Cross.

It’s amazing what you can find in charity shops, Vintage has been on trend for a while now, and charity shopping is perfect for sourcing one off pieces and designer gear.

The #CharityFashionLive team recreated some seriously on trend outfits, just moments after they appeared on the catwalks of Jasper Conran Studio, Holly Fulton, and Sister by Sibling.

The concept consisted of a collaborative project between the Red Cross and stylist Emma Slade (of Back of the Wardrobe). Which set out to prove that you don’t need to be on a big budget to be on trend, and you can also support a good cause.. win win right?

On Saturday Emma recreated London Fashion Week looks live, on the spot, just moments after they appeared on the SS15 LFW live stream – using ONLY clothes she found in a Red Cross charity shop on the day.






You can watch the video here:

Ooh, and don’t forget that the outfits are available to buy on eBay: Get the LFW look..

…with 100% of proceeds going to The British Red Cross.

Backstage with Xiao Li – SS15 London Fashion Week

On 16/09/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

Our guest blogger Sanya Jeet reports on Xiao Li this SS15..

Xiao Li, the winner of the Merit Award last January, showcased a SS15 collection true to form on Day 3 of London Fashion Week. The designer was born in China and studied at London College of Fashion and moved on to a do an MA in Women’s Knitwear at the Royal College of Art. Since graduating in 2013 Xiao Li has done particularly well for herself. A collection revolving around volume with modern textures was complimented by the ultra sleek structured hairstyles as styled by the Toni and Guy team. Using a huge amount of pinning and hairspraying and blowdrying, the team created a look so smooth and chic to match the new age vibes of Li’s work. the hair was styled to look as if it was tied in knots instead of a more traditional bun. Original structured hairstyles matched the original methods used in the SS15 collection such as combining silicone into knitwear, moulded knitted fabrics all of which revolved around wearability which is a key factor in all of Xiao Li’s creations.




Backstage with Jean-Pierre Braganza SS15

On 14/09/2014 by Bonafide Supernova

We’ve been lucky enough to get an insight into this seasons key looks courtesy of Toni & Guy, our guest blogger Sanya Jeet has been busy backstage at this seasons LFW, you can see all the exclusive backstage footage live on our Instagram account @bonafidesupernova.



Jean-Pierre Braganza’s SS15 collection revolved around an “architectonic” style epitomising the concept of industrial elegance. To complement the collection Toni and Guy’s Indira Schauwecker worked with Mr Braganza to create an idea of a girl who seemed like she just “had sex on a motorbike”. Naturally, this sounds like quite a messy affair but as we all know JP Braganza loathes mess, including messy hair. This contradiction lead to a neat but subtle 70s look for hair and makeup. Soft tousled hair with side partings and side fringes on some. For the texture at the root, hairstylists used the Toni and Guy “BlowOut Spray”. For the subtlest of waves the hairstylists curled the hair by blow drying but pulled down each curl before it set to ensure the end look was soft, and effortless looking. Naturally, finishing off with hairspray. A wearable look that’s subtle yet glamorous.
