PURE London – what else?

Some of you might have read my last blog about impression and inspiration of the London fashion show. If not take the chance and read it here.
What else did I see at PURE in London?
Although I had of course to stay most of the time at my stand, I had the chance to walk around and discover unbelievable great accessories which we cannot find as much in Germany: fascinators.
A fascinator is a headdress which is usually worn by women. Originally, scarves in transparent or laced fabrics were called fascinator. Today designs of fabrics, lace, feathers or other light materials being fixed invisibly on top of the head are called fascinator. They even seem to float above the head – light and luxurious. There are various styles of fascinators: designed like small hats which lay directly on the head. Other models remind us of sculptures towering on top of women’s head or they are made of various single parts fixed on Alice bands surrounding women’s head. Typically fascinators are composed of feathers, ribbons, lace, pearls, silk flowers. They are a perfect alternative towards hats as they can be joined into different hairstyles.
In UK it is very popular to wear fascinators for all kind of events which demand a glamorous chic. Here in Germany you would find them mainly at weddings and even there still rarely.
See here some attractive fascinator designs seen at PURE London fashion show:

Fashion Show PURE London – the Wow-Effect

Saturday,  very early in the morning I headed of to London, the City for fancy Fashion and accessories at Olympia.
I arrived in typically rainy and cold weather. I should have expected it, shouldn’t I? However,  I spent part of the day strolling through Kensignton – a very nice part of London with smart architecture. The rest of the day I needed to build up my booth and prepare for the exhibition which was due to start on Sunday. The PURE show is a Fashion and Accessory fair including jewelry mainly targeting the british shop and department store owners. The show is being divided into areas like Premium,  Aspire,  Allure,  Spirit,  menswear and Accessories. Find out more here…

My stand was upstairs within accessories in the gallery – greatly located.  For those who do not know Olympia: it is a popular spot for exhibitions and shows located quite centrally in Kensignton. The building is quite impressesive – big halls with curved roof with a lot of steel, a construction giving it an industrial and modern look.
Some impressions…
