Vogue Festival

Welcome to headless style!
There are many unusual and interesting names for blogs out in the blogasphere because of this I found it difficult to think of a name for my own (felt like I was naming my child). I had a mental list of varied characteristics it had to embody; witty, memorable, current etc. I eventually chose headless style; a name I found quite fitting with the theme as you will come to see.
I'm pretty sure I am last on the uptake of posting on the auspicious occasion of The Vogue Festival. However I still owe you and the show the honour of it being the topic of my first post.
This also loops in with two of my personal icons Garance Dore and Alexa Chung. I know what the majority of you are thinking 'Alexa, how predictable!' Yes, it is. I do agree. But c'mon she's the ex of Alex Turner frontman of my favourite band Arctic Monkeys and current partner of Drowners frontman Matthew Hitt. Not to mention having the coolest bunch of friends including Keira Knightley, Pixie Geldof, Nick Grimshaw, Harley Viera Newton and the Delevigne sisters to mention a few. To me she gives that air of Emma Watson in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, just so damn cool. Not only that she features as one of the bodies of the British Fashion Council, has a sell out messenger bag entitled with her name for the specialist leather brand Mulberry and tops best dressed list consistently.
Garance on the other hand is a not a typical icon of the modern girl; but she is one of my many. The first ever blog that I discovered was hers, she tells these beautifully witty French themed stories of her childhood, interviews women from around the world and gives us a glance in the current New York. It's not necessarily all stern fashion based but every post has a link to the everyday fashion world. She is also the partner of Scott Schuman whom some of you may know as The Sartorialist.
I had wanted to attend the first year of Vogue Festival but was unable too, so this year I made it my prerogative to wake up early and book tickets. This did not let my efforts down, it instead enabled me to grasp a fuller understanding of what these women (and Paul Smith) do, how they sound when they are sitting not so far away from you and most importantly deepened my interest in this field.
I have put up pictures from the Saturday that I attended. They feature the brilliantly funny Anna Dello Russo, former Italian Vogue Editor who is now doing the same job in Japan. The designer, Sir Paul Smith. Alexa Chung, former model turned presenter who is now situated in America doing Fuse News. Alexandra Shulman, current editor of British Vogue. Susie Bubble, widely known through her eccentric and popular blog Style Bubble. Garance Dore, the originally French blogger who is currently situated in New York. Emily Sheffield, Samantha Cameron's sister and Vogue's deputy editor. And last but definitely not least Caroline Issa who was sitting directly infront of me at Mad About The Girl, I have circled the back of her head in blue. There is also a picture that features one of her current popular designs of her collaboration with L.K. Bennett which you may recognise. Enjoy the pictures!:)
Thankyou for viewing my first post. xo
