Hi everyone. I know you have not seen me around these pages for over a month, but thats because I have been cooking something delicious for all you Londoners. I am absolutely delighted to formally announce to you all that I will be hosting the second annual Fashion Industry Insiders event on the 20th of September. But of course if you follow me on instagram, you would have seen me post about it many times.
What does Fashion Industry Insiders stand for you may ask. Fashion Industry Insiders is a fashion and lifestyle accelerator that aims to empower, educate and equip the next generation of fashion influencers in creative and innovative ways. The objective is to grow sustainable, value driven businesses and personalities that will tell a story of success and transformational change within the fashion industry and beyond. It is a brand I started two and half years ago.
Last year, Fashion Industry Insiders hosted over 150 guests at the prestigious Chelsea Harbor hotel. Out of the 150 guests who attended our event and was covered by bloggers and YouTubers reaching an estimated 110,000 online audience.
The theme for this year is ‘Fashion as an art form’ where we explore the intricate connection between fashion and forms of art such as music, photography and more. we aim to host about 250 guests and reach at least 500,000 online audience through our affiliate media partners during and after the live event.
From an amazing pret-a-potter fashion show, to the hearing from industry experts during the interactive panel, the event will be packed full of exciting things. On the night, there will be live music performances with our headline artist being the amazing and sensational Ciinderalla B. There will be drinks and light refreshment too. I mean why should anyone miss this event?
Well, if I was you, I would get my ticket on eventbrite right now to make sure I dont miss out on all this amazing show.
Some of our official partners are Elemis, Vitabiotics, Arvense, Love Chin Chin and many more.
First of all, let me apologise for going awal on you guys. It has been nonstop on my side hence the little break in regular articles. I mean where do I start. From running from one fashion show to another to putting together my yearly Fashion Industry Insider’s event. But I count it all as blessings as the past couple of months have been productive.
The month of June was easily my busiest month of the year so far with back to back shoots, back to back fashion shows from London Fashion Week to Milan Fashion week via Florence (Pitti). I came back to London to a very hectic schedule which has no signs of slowing down. I mean how did I do it you may ask. At some point, I thought had the strength of Superman. Only if that were true eh.
Hi everyone! It has been a minute since I did a post on here. I apologise for the silence. However, if you have been following me on instagram then you would have noticed I have been busy doing a tour of Fashion weeks from London Fashion Week, and Florence (Pitti), to Milan Fashion Week. All the fashion weeks from difference cities were amazing. Please keep an out out for the posts which I will share soon.
This is not one of those articles with me showing off a glossy new suit. This is much more deeper and important than that so please humour me and read on
This post is going to be a quick one about choosing a suit that will last you the summer. I guess if you live in England then summer is a relative word as there are no gurantees for hot temperatures lol. The weather is never under our control nor should we seek in infleunce it. However, one thing we have total control over is what we wear through seasons. In the UK, summer officially starts in June but depending on the mood of the climate, it could really start to feel like summer from May. Once temperatures start to rise layers come off.
However, if you are like me who likes to wear suits all year round then finding the right suit for hot weather is essential. Spring and summer are the seasons you are more likely to be invited to weddings which of course requires a suit. Except you want to be roasting in your regular suit, I suggest you get yourself a lightweight suit.
To help in your search for a good suit, here are the things you should bear in mind.
Fabric – This is the most important element you should check for when buying a seasonal suit. For hot weather, you need fabrics that are breathable and lightweight. Breathability is so important during hot weather suit to allow air to flow through the fabric which in turn prevents you from sweating. And of course we all know what a little sweat could do to a man’s clothing. The three best fabrics to look out for when buying a hot weather suit are linen, cotton or seersucker. I would have gone into the construction of each fabric type but never mind. May be in another post
Colour – Summer or not, I like colour. I personally think colour accentuate a man’s confidence. Typical summer colours are light grey, baby blue, Berry, Red, Khaki and even beige like the suit I have on in the photos.
Construction and lining – The way a suit is constructed is also another important aspect one should keep an eye out for when investing in a seasonal suit. For hot weather always go for half lined or unlined jackets. Unlined suit jackets are lightweight and breathable. Bemberg silk, rayon, polyester, and acetate are all materials used for lining. Also note that an unlined suit will loose it structure and shape very easily forming creases during it lifecycle.
As you can see from the photos, I have a three piece suit on. I can assure you that this beige suit is one of my favourite summer suit despite it being three piece. The beauty about this look is that if the weather get hotter than anticipated then all I have to do is remove the jacket and throw it over my shoulder whilst the waistcoat helps keep my form. If that fails to cool you down then find a place with an air conditioned room or simply find a water fountain to dip your feet in like I did.
Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, or just walk on water. Lightweight is the word.
