Visa Swap Show

The great and the good of the fashion world descended on Covent Garden for the 2008 Visa Swap fashion show on Wednesday night. And what a crowd it was. The most fashionable of the fashionable were there sipping on cocktails in tea cups and milling around the loft space. Erin O’Connor and Olivia Inge were there gliding elegantly through the trendy crowd as Margot Stilley hung out with friends enjoying the vodka cocktails.                 The night was held to support TRAID and the Swap event and there was a very edgy catwalk show […]

They were bold, simply, rich, fluid and beautiful all at the same time. His collection for the final looked unbelievably professional, as though he had been doing it for years, and he stood out from the rest of the designers by miles. Zandra Rhodes commented on his work by saying, ‘I can’t believe the detail in Jasper’s workmanship, it’s knockout!’ And it was. But now Jasper is going on to join Oli (www.oli.co.uk) […]
