The Very.co.uk Spring/Summer 2014 collection event on March 19th at the Vinyl Factory, Soho was of course incredible to witness with a vast array of new season must haves on display along with beauty stations from Nails Inc and Babyliss. Many influential people from digital and print media turned up to view the collection along with fashion bloggers who were very much ready for a spot of VIP pampering.
The collections included Love Label and Definitions which showcased a wide variety of daring brights, pastels hues and edgy matching sets, which guests were allowed to try on and validate via a special photo-shoot!
Celebrities who attended included MTV presenter Lilah Parsons, model Vogue Williams and of course The Saturdays member Vanessa White. She looked absolutely stunning dressed from head to toe in Very’s Love Label. The bold pink print matching set on her looked like perfection and she was thrilled to be wearing it. ‘If you’d asked me a few years ago if I’d wear a matching set I’d probably have said no but it’s so massive at the moment! Everyone is wearing them’, Vanessa said.
Her love for denim didn’t go unnoticed. ‘I don’t know where I’d be without denim’, said Vanessa. ‘It’s the ultimate style staple so I’m very excited it was so prominent on the catwalks!’ In reference to the upcoming season, Vanessa was on point with her denim styling forecast. ‘I tend to stick to darker denim shades but these faded blues from Very are really cool and I LIVE in shorts in summer so the coral ones are great’
The upcoming summer season had Vanessa in high spirits as she unveiled more of her beachy styling tips. ‘I’m really into form fitting clothes but I also love wearing more flowy looser tops that I can cinch in at the waist’. Perfect for that feminine silhouette!
Having her images splashed across media outlets in the past couple of years, we all know she loves to experiment with her style. ‘The white shorts suit from Very is cool because it’s not too out there but if you’re going to do matching prints I say go wild with it.’ Fashion today is all about being brave and Vanessa hits the nails on the head with this, urging other girls to take a risk.
Other favourites of hers in the collection included the classic blazer and the jumpsuits. ‘How great would this look with a pair of heels?’ she gushed eyeing up the coveted piece. An instant outfit choice for many of my upcoming Summer evening parties. Thanks Vanessa!
It was great to see someone talk to eloquently about fashion. When asked about image portrayal as part of one of Britain’s most successful girl bands she stated, ‘obviously when we’re by ourselves we have your own style but together we work with a stylist to find what’s right for us’. With so many more pieces to choose from, she eventually concluded, the collection is absolutely gorgeous. I want everything!’ With that, she warmly mingled with others, greeting everyone and took as many pictures as possible.
