INTERNATIONAL FASHION SHOWCASE 2014
180 STRAND LONDON WC2R 1 EA
BLOOM – PORTUGAL
I met Carlos Couto – www.carlos-couto.com a portuguese designer at the International Fashionshowcase 2014 where he showed his gorgeous pieces at the BLOOM showroom of Portugal. I fell in love with the white dress and coat with the amazing needle pattern. Hopefully I can style these gorgeous pieces for my blog one day – I already have a perfect outfit in mind. lets see what the future brings!
I enjoyed my stay in London at Citizen M Bankside Hotel. My room was in the 4th floor, number 406 with a kingsize bed, a nice little desk and a quiet big bathroom. When I got into my room there was a tablet next to my bed displaying: “Welcome citizen Lea” – so sweet!! this tablet is helpful to navigate air and heating and to explore more about citizen M. there is freewifi and lots of movies to watch for free. too bad I didnt have time to check their medialibrary..
as I was in London for the fashionweek I was very happy to use the computers in the lobby. so for me it was if I was working at home because they had a nice iMac, like mine at home. also printing my tickets to the shows was not a problem. thank you so much again for having me as your guest. I felt very welcome!
the lobby has a bookshop, a bar, lots of places to sit and relax; tables, armchairs and couchs. I really love the interior design. lots of things to see. check the gorgeous lamps and books for instance.
a very lovely space is the inner courtyard with the lamps. my rooms view was directly into the courtyard – gorgeous!
on Valentines day they slipped a little love note under my door, that was just too cute! xx
CITIZEN M a lovely and trendy boutique Hotel with locations in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, London and Glasgow and soon in New York and Paris, too. check citizenm.com for your next trip!

his collection is inspired by the early baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi and has a very dark approach with a lot of black and heavy, stiff materials. what I really liked were the coats jackets and blazers. I was sitting in the second row. which was not a bad place to sit but still I couldnt take perfect photos of the outfits. here are some outfits that I have seen via jetsetfashionmagazine.comand worldsno1model.com and nowfashion.com
Jean-Pierre Braganzas hand out says:
“A collection for an elegant, modern, woman with dark edge; she is intelligent, ambitious and inabashedly enjoys her successes to the fullest.”
thank you very much for inviting me. I had a lot of fun watching your show. and I am already looking forward to see your SS15 collection in september.
well, ladies, what do you think about his collection? would you wear it?
