Bespoke Your World at Hotel Café Royal

The luxury Hotel Café Royal was the beautiful setting for this week's fashion launch. Our friend, the lovely Sara Simmonds invited us along to view bespoke collections and brands that that are sold through her Instagram business - Bespoke Your World (Click to read our previous article).

The finest designers, hand-made goods and luxury collections from across the world were on display. We were offered the opportunity to mingle with photographers, designers and fashionistas, all washed down with a flow of complimentary wine.

Harrods personal shopper Jasmin Nissa Shaw met us once again, and offered me her styling advice for two classic looks. Jasmin first dressed me in a Collar dress by Simo Collective. This dress was dust pink - an elegant, classy look, and a great look for brunch or semiformal occasion, made using incredibly high-quality fabric, sourced from the great Northern Italian Mills in Beilla.

The second look was another favourite of mine - a shirt dress. Shirt dresses have been a staple item in my wardrobe throughout the year, so when Jamsin presented me with a limited edition, hand-painted Gaia Birds shirt dress from N&S GAIA by Sidharth Sinha, I couldn’t resist. The contemporary shirt dress was beautiful, long and featured folklore embroidery.

Sara spoke of the brands with which she partners and the selection process behind them. Bespoke Your World only uses designers that are completely unique - embracing individuality, luxury and ethical fashion. An empowerment coach was also at the event - who spoke of Sara’s journey and presented an enlightening talk.  

Pieces were available to buy at the event, and can also be bought from BYW Instagram page @Bespokeyourworld
