British Fashion Styling

The festive season is a time of indulgence with a wide range of parties, from cocktails with work colleagues to family dinners. The following limited selection offers ideas to dress for the occasion, focused only on the creativity of the British Fashion Awards 2012 winners.

My video after the ceremony listed bellow mentions all of them, but to give an accurate idea about their work, it's better to feature what you can actually purchase through an online platform connecting bloggers with e-tailers. (As in other styling blog posts, just follow the links on the captions.)

Whatever the event, it's important to look chic and glamorous as a sign of our appreciation not only for ourselves but for others. We always dress up for things we consider special and the festive season may be overrated but it still marks a time when we're particularly sociable.

British designers are more and more acknowledged by the fashion industry as a whole and we can support them during this festive season. Red is the Christmas colour by excellence so I leave you with a trendy graphic dress by Roksanda Ilincic. Merry Christmas!
