QMIN magazine’s London based Fashion Editor, Emily McDonnell, returned to Saatchi Gallery to attend Scoop London, one of Europe’s most exciting fashion trade shows for contemporary women’s apparel, accessories and lifestyle.
Red carpet, press wall, free champagne and lots of amazing clothes and accessories for autumn/winter 2016. Now, that is what you called a great start of a new week and a new month. Scoop London is a key destination for leading buyers and exhibitors to meet in a unique, professional and bespoke environment. Artwork from the exhibition “Champagne Life and artist Aidan Salakhova was displayed among the different stands which gave a great mix of fashion and art. Trade shows are an excellent way to discover new brands. QMIN spotted several amazing brands such as ANNA + NINA, UZMA BOZAI, ESSENTIEL ANTWERP, ROGUES and FLORIAN LONDON.
There were a lot of fur coats both real and faux in different colours and shapes. For autumn/winter 2016 brands are playing with different patterns and colours in their collections. The luxury brand Florian London displayed really cool leather handbags that one can customise with different hand painted pop art. The bags can be shipped to Dubai where the bestselling colour is beige.
