What a hectic week it has been! Last week in Leicestershire was our half term week, that means my eldest son (29 months old) is not in the playgroup and I have my 2 boys (29 months old and 7 months old) on my own for 3 whole days!! During the same week is also LFW which Mimi & Thomas has participated. I have showcased my M&T clutch bags and cashmere wraps collection in a pop up store format at two wonderful venues: KH hair boutique in Leicester city centre and at the Mercure Grand Hotel Leicester.

What an amazing opportunity to be able to bring our online boutique to the public and interact with customers, bloggers, media, photographers, buyers and designers! An experience that I just could not miss!

I have also presented my new brand True Cashmere women knitwear debut collection at LFW catwalk, featuring M&T clutch bags. This is my first fashion show and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. My day at the fashion show is like a Christmas Day, all that build up, the mad preparation, stressful when certain things changed at the last minute like the running order, missing models and a few things has gone wrong but then boom all my models, one by one walked down the runway and eventually I walked down as a designer for the first time to receive a round of applause and it's done! Voila.

I cannot thank enough to KH hair stylists for their hardwork and expertise, also to all my models for bringing my True cashmere collection alive. They have trotted down the runway wearing my 100% cashmere key pieces and carrying my M&T clutch bags in a relaxed chic style accompanied by Ellie Golding's new track- Still falling for you. (I absolutely love this song since I have watched Bridget Jones's Baby.) Each of the models have presented my cashmere collection much better than my expectation, as a whole, they truly convey what modern cashmere knitwear is about, simple cut, flattering silhouette and provides a versatile modern wardrobe solution. The best of all is their ultra softness and cosiness, I must mention some models did not want to take theirs off and return their cashmere garments back to my rail. So there you go, that is my first fashion show, and now the follow up work begins! True Cashmere website is coming soon! Follow #truecashmere
