Fit For A Princess, the L.K.Bennett Debut Fragrance
The Duchess of Cambridge is known to be an advocate of British Heritage brand L.K.Bennett, selling out their dresses wherever she goes. Now in an exciting move, the brand has announced its first ever foray into fragrance – Signature.
The wonderfully complex fragrance opens with hypnotic top notes of citrus, pepper and rhubarb. Heart notes of rose, jasmine and ylang ylang add a floral flavour, with base notes of warm woods, dry amber, musk and vetiver adding an air of luxurious sophistication. Could this be the fragrance Kate wore to Prince Louis christening?
RRP: 30ml (£35) 50ml (£49) and 100ml (£69), L.K.Bennett

Fashions Finest AW18 during London Fashion Week took place at DeVere Grand Connaught Rooms in Holborn, London.
Velica’s inspiration comes from traveling abroad to a few fashion capitals around the world. The “je ne sais quoi” of Paris, the refinement of an afternoon tea in London, a walk along the Mediterranean in Barcelona, and most recently Dubai has inspired her to take her creativity as far as her imagination will allow. She is inspired most by unconventional colour combinations and rhythmic textiles that tell a story.
The thoughtfulness that goes into combining various textiles that will engage the senses is paramount to the design process. It’s the intricate details of every design that sets a garment apart from the rest.
As a designer, she allows her creativity to be uninhibited with regard to how she envisions the final piece. The world consists of many beautiful textiles, places, and experiences. And through them, she purposes her ideas and dreams into becoming wearable art. Velica and Managing Partner, Charles Dunn recently breathed the brand’s fashion aesthetic into its first unisex fragrance, Forever. Indeed, an extension of the brand’s commitment to luxury and unique style.

Her style is classic, bohemian, funky and chic with a lot of appeal. She sees her creation as feminine, loose, relaxed, casual and charming. She creates timeless collections with an attitude, yet free spirited, whimsical with earthy sensuality, reflecting comfort and individuality.
Her creation is about mixing the old with the new, trendy with classics and vintage, with loose cuts, ruffles and layers. Her creations are often said to be inspired by nature and the fabrics she prefers are natural; cottons, cotton tusser, hand woven fabric. She displays intricate handwork in her designs which are uniquely embedded with handwork, beaded embroideries, rich antique pita and ethnic thread giving her creations a rich and classic feel with hints of retro and boho chic attached to them.
