Today I am not just sharing my work with you but also a new AW13 collection by amazing menswear designer Jenny Schwarz.

Just before the Christmas break, I worked on the look book for amazing menswear designer Jenny Schwarz AW13 collection. Jenny‘s collections always feature pieces that are beautifully cut and tailored. This is a rare quality to find but tailoring has been in Jenny‘s family for over a decade, and some would say it is in her blood.
Jenny asked me to do the styling on her latest collection and I was delighted as I have really wanted to work with Jenny for along time. The lookbook was photographed by Michael Furlonger and Bunny Allen did hair and make up. Props and set designer Lorna Kelly, was also brought on board to bring Jenny‘s visions alive for this shoot.
I have been following Jenny‘s collections for a few seasons now and I can honestly say that with each collection, she grows as a designer. As I mentioned above, Jenny’s cut of tailoring and attention to detail (a girl after my own heart) is beautiful. It is hard to pick out my favourite pieces within this new collection as I believe that this will truly be the collection to push her work and name out there into the spotlight.
For this collection Jenny was influence by Jesse James and the tailored jackets and trousers worn by him and other horsemen of the era but she still manages to stay true to her signature that she is now creating for herself including leather jackets and coats with sheepskin collars, cashmere jumpers and long johns (which Bunny and I are hoping Jenny will be made in women’s sizes so that we can purchase a pair), shirts and panelled trousers.
I have some very exciting news to share with you all, as many of you may have seen I am apart of the Independent Fashion Bloggers, a group that I am very proud to be apart of.
IFB as it is more commonly known runs a feature where they ask members to submit one of their weekly posts. Only the top 20 posts are chosen to be feature in ‘Links A La Mode’ and this week my post is one of the featured blogs.
This is amazing thing for me, as it has really boosted my confidence when it comes to fashion blogging. When I first started I knew I had the passion as fashion is my life but I lacked the confidence that anyone would be interested in my blog. I have worked hard over the last few months with the guidance of IFB, various blogging books and my fellow blogging housemate.
All I can say is that there are so many amazing fashion blogs out there and I would encourage you to check out some of the ones that are featured in the Links A La Mode post below.
