Best of Blueprint Tradeshow 2014

 

Hi Lovelies! ❤

I was at Blueprint Tradeshow 2014 and here’s a selection of my version of Best of Blueprint Tradeshow 2014.
For more info., you may refer to their official site here.
There’s some 200 local and international labels, of which I’m featuring about 20 here, enjoy!

Ana Faye

Ireland. Website here. Full 2015 lookbook here.

Before the tradeshow, I was invited down to her booth by Ana Faye, who found me online while search for press/blog releases online for previous yearsBlueprint. Ana Faye hails from Ireland, having worked as a fashion and accessories designer for several years in London, Italy and China, her love for handbags and Ireland led her back home to start designing and making her own unique line of leather bags. She now stocks all over Ireland, UK, Europe and the USA and is looking to expand into Asia.

NatalieBColeman

Ireland. Website here.

Next up we have NatalieBColeman, also an Irish designer with confident and bold womenswear designs with a tinge of quirkiness. She presented a new FW 2014 collection that I love, which unfortunately at this point in time I don’t have the press images.

So so, I only had an hour’s breeze around the Blueprint Tradeshow,
as such the labels below are the brands I see on the handbook which I like and selected to feature here.

In case you’re wondering, the premise of which I decide to feature these brands are based; mainly on what I like, which is womenswear, and a kind of aesthetics veering towards contemporary chic and irreverent. 🙂

AL’Manita

Thailand. Website here.

Stylish, contemporary, chic. Irreverent yet sophisticated. I want the entire collection, nuff’ said. See the entire Spring Summer 2014 collection here.

American Retro

France. Website here.

Lookbook in larger images/pdf here.

Irreverent slogan tees, varsity jackets, knee high socks, pink leather jackets, pencil skirts, suited blazers. Effortless cool, that’s what they are. The non-basic basics of American fashion editors and fashionistas. I am in love with the brand. My only complain is the name, American Retro – it just conjures the image of a deserted American Petrol Kiosk, which I feel isn’t relevant today. Perhaps something more updated would be better. Nonetheless, the name does explain the heritage of the brand, the french designers went to US and came back inspired to design a collection and brand.

Ange Révolte

Singapore. Website here.

image2 image3 image8

Titled Metaphor, Pre-Fall 2014 Collection, where there is light, there’s darkness, where there’s good, there’s bad. Frankly I think that black and white has been done to death by local designers, but there’s something still refreshing about this collections; the little details, the geometric cuts and designs, would definitely wear them. Full collection here. Fall collection also out here.

Bitching & Junkfood

UK. Website here. FB here.

There isn’t much images available from their official site, wanted to show you their SS14 collection/lookbook but couldn’t find it so I’m showing photos posted on their FB to show you a glimpse of their brand and irreverent style, which is obviously totally in line with their name, ya’know.

Ema Savahl Couture designer with a heavy emphasis on art and textures in her creation and also worn by celebrities worldwide. I love her collections which resemble pieces of art more than fashion apparels. Those baroque details? How gorgeous they are! Check out her artworks, I mean collections on her lookbooks here. Amazingly (wouldn’t you want to fly down to their store to get fitted?) also shoppable online here.

Fabitoria

Taiwan. Website (launching soon) here. Etsy Shop here and FB here.

Images from their FB and Etsy shop. These outfits are perfect for afternoon dates at the park, a museum visit and are simply indicative of a woman of elegant pursuits and activities. Maybe all of us will start visiting the museum more often when we don these pieces. Someone buy these beautiful designs for me, please.

REVASSEUR’s Fall Winter Collection is inspired by Disney’s Villains. Try guessing who the looks represent!
