Aqua London Store Launch!
Finally the gorgeous Aqua line has launched its very own store in London! The hip design house is made up of Ryan Holliday-Stevens, his business partner Julie and their muse Laura. The line hails from Leeds and has been a favourite of mine since I first spotted it on ASOS.com a few years ago.
I'm not alone in my amour for Aqua, the launch was packed with hip fashionista's, celebs(Paloma Faith- looked stunning as ever in her retro 40s pin up girl style) and paparazzi. Over cider in champagne glasses and mini fish and chips(yum)we caught up with Trinny and Susannah. The girls (who look gorge in the flesh) told us they have a new show starting in June called "What They Did Next" after which Susannah grabbed my boobs and said 'Brilliant dress and you have fab tits darling I absolutely love you!' love you too Susannah! The party vibe was buzzing with a slick house DJ at the decks, master mixologists at the bar and of course amazing Aqua pieces to get your mitts on! What more can a girl ask for?
When the FBC bumped into Laura (pictured wearing the nude and black dress)we were momentarily paralysed by her beauty. This girl is about 6ft tall and looks like Erin O'Connor! Ryan told us that he met Laura when she started working in their Leeds store 7 yrs ago, and she's been inspiring him ever since!
Julie's a Jewel!
Aqua's co-owner Julie was wearing one of their key creations "I absolutely love this dress" she told us. Agreed!
We spied this hot little reveller rocking a dress that we own! Love the drop front on this piece and the way she accessorized the dress with matching socks pushed the fash points! Aqua translates high end couture style with out the prices you pay in a Paris show room. They've become a firm fav with celebs like Frankie from The Saturdays and Alexandra Burke who've been seen wearing the designs in music video's and while they're out and about.
All the party goers perusing the rails were seen marching to the tills with more than one fab creation under their arms!
