Shoppist favourites

I recently became a Personal Shopper with new online personal shopping service Shoppist and have selected some more of my favourite clothes for my new clientele in addition to the pieces I've selected on my profile.  Shoppist is a personal shopper app whose job is to search online on behalf of the customer and get more relevant products sourced from the entire web.  Shoppist is for those who are tired of spending hours searching online and not being able to find the right product.

You can hire your personal shopper for free whose job is to search online on your behalf and curate most relevant products specifically for you out of entire shopping universe (Amazon, Flipkart, Jabong, Snapdeal, Myntra, Zovi, Fashionara and many more).

While shopping online, if you've experienced getting bombarded with too many irrelevant choices, keeping multiple shopping apps feels like a mess, you feel confused about the style that suits you and disappointment about  missing the most relevant deals then… Shoppist is the solution for you - currently available on Android playstore. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.shoppist.app).  The startup app was founded by IT Roorkee graduates with the vision to make shopping easier, developed and based in India

With this being an Indian based company, there are a lot of stunning items from that country including clothing and homeware.  I've always been attracted to the bright jewel colours of the clothing and I'm very struck by the style of the clothing so I'm highlighting that today.  The dramatic colours, the shape and cut of the dresses to give them such flowing movement are beautiful and the bright gemstone jewellery finishes the stunning look.

The best of the Grad shows

I've been to lots of the graduate fashion, jewellery, costume an product design shows in the last several weeks and I'm posting images of my favourites. I've been to just about all in Glasgow, and indulged myself in a trip to London to see Graduate Fashion Week at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane which was an exhibition and a half!!

First is a tiny selection of my absolute favourites.from Graduate Fashion Week:

The detail in the work on the shoulders of this jacket is brilliant and I love how this bright outfit completely comes to life when worn by a model in a shoot with as much energy as the vibrancy of the clothes

I loved these pieces which were the silhouettes of pieces from collections all done in voile to show just the design detail in the simplest way, they looked ethereal and ghost like to me.
Kelvin college in Glasgow is one of my favourites after I discovered the design talent and the tutor support a year ago, and I was really pleased to see the stunning designs this year.

Glasgow Caledonia University put on a great catwalk show with a lot of great designs.
