The Good Fashion Show

Yesterday was The Good Fashion Show, a fashion show, marketplace, & art exhibition featuring the fashions by sustainable and ethical designers and artwork by artists inspired by sustainable and ethical fashion.  I helped organize the event and am already thinking of ideas for next year's show! 

I put together the exhibition, so I was sitting at this table all day giving out information about artists.  Got 1 hour of sleep the night before, so the Pepsi max was needed to get me through the day...

Great photographs by Sash Manev in sustainable cardboard frames

Gorgeous illustrations by Erica Sharp and Zarina Liew

Beautiful illustration by Rachel de Ste. Croix

Turtle Doves gloves and blankets made from recycled fabrics

Beautiful assortment of old lace and fabric

The yummiest fudge ever

Vintage china for sale by Meadowsweet

Adorable vintage dresses

Colorful baskets

And photos from the evening runway show! 

Loved this wedding dress made from bubble wrap!

Korean Valentine's dinner

For Valentine's Day my boyfriend and I went to Koba in Fitzrovia for Korean food.  I loved watching the meat cook in front of us and then wrapping it up in lettuce!  Such a fun, romantic, yummy dinner.  

Present for my Valentine :-)

Valentine's treats

Celebrating Valentine's a day early with a latte and tiny heart-shaped biscuits from Carluccio's!  

Beautiful tea packaging

I saw these Twinings tea tins today in Waitrose.  Love the elegant, feminine design.  Can't wait to try the Rose Garden tea!

Bad girls go to London

I know this t-shirt stand is really touristy, but I can't help but laugh at some of the shirts.

I especially love this one:

The pink "bad girl" font with the devil horns and tail is amazing.
