Edge/ Grunge/ Rock ‘n Roll - 113 bringing the attitude


One One Three are an independent brand, run by Najma and Keenan, and based in good old London. Their designs caught the plus size communities attention sometime ago and the edgy, fashion forward and well-made clothes, became an instant favourite. When they announced a fashion show during London Fashion Week, I jumped at the chance to go and see the new collection first hand.

Held in a warehouse in Angel, the venue set the mood for what was to come  - dark and urban cool. The space was covered in graffiti and in usual circumstances I would have had a walk around to admire it, but we all wanted to see the clothes! I sat with the gorgeous Lauren and the whole room was buzzing with excitement.

The show began and we were treated with a mix of real street style and classic pieces which were cut to perfection. The models with a ‘YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US’ attitude came stomping down the catwalk like rock stars, knowing they looked killer in the mainly grunge inspired clothes. They worked the crowd into a frenzy, demanding a response, and we responded in kind. We were treated to tartan skirts, trousers and dresses, and they were worked wonderfully into the PU and leather looks incorporated into the collection. There were also stretch material mini and maxi dresses with graffiti logos, and an unbelievable leather jacket that was studded from front to back.

Edge/ Grunge/ Rock ‘n Roll sums up the show and collection quite nicely; the only disappointment was that the show didn’t go on all night! I took pictures of my favourite outfits and although there was a strong spotlight, I think you can get an idea of just how awesome the clothes were – get your orders in quick!



This gorgeous skater style tartan dress was my favourite piece! <3





I love that there are independent designers out there making their mark on the plus size stage, we need more of this because when it’s done right, it's nothing short of spectacular!

‘til next time.

Success

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
