LONDON  is clearly the one capital with so much culture and diversity that surely, we will witness an abundance of colour from our wealth of talented designers showcasing.

As we approach autumn on 22 September, it is inevitable that people will start wearing black.  Black is the go to comfort colour, where the wearer seeks comfort, yet it is so depressing.  Yes, black is considered luxury etc but try some colour, it really does liven up your skin tone and add vibrancy.  Fashion is all about feeling good to.  

Feel good and inject colour into your life.
