London Fashion Week: N&S Gaia by Sidharth

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I can’t believe how long ago London Fashion Week was! I was so excited and very lucky to be given the opportunity to attend the fabulous event as a guest blogger for Sidharth.

Sidharth(Designer behind N&S GAIA)

This designer has some unique and very exciting designs and I feel this is what we have been missing over the years in the fashion industry.

N&S Gaia stands for Nature & Sustainability with revered guidance of Mother Nature, inceptor and creator-GAIA, the primal Greek Goddess. The brand started its journey in 2013 from North East India. They are a contemporary Womenswear label that are based in New Delhi. N&S Gaia have given the technique called Dakmanda which is a hand weaving embroidery technique of Garo Tribe in the North East of India a re-birth.

The brand has used upcycling and sustainable fabrics in their designs. They take the idea that Less is more and try to keep an environmental factor in their designs.

 

When I attended the fashion show I was greeted with so many beautiful colours on the catwalk. Sidharth’s design are very well thought out and had an element of futuristic about them. The amount of detail on some of the clothing was seriously very well put together. The clothing was not over the top yet it still had eye catching appeal. The makeup complimented the clothing and the hair was kept up in high buns.

 

I was also very fortunate enough to be able to go backstage and see the clothing up close. It was such an amazing experience to see how much work goes into a catwalk show and also to be given the opportunity to meet with Sidharth, the designer of the brand.

 

I would like to wish Sidharth and N&S Gaia all the best for the future and I hope to be able to attend another show of theirs in the future. I really did feel that their designs were very fresh and stood out from anything I have seen to date. I definitely would wear something from their collection.  Thank you to Yannis for inviting me and for taking great care of me whilst at the show. It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and I hope to see you all soon.

Hello, and welcome to my blog. Today I will be introducing you all to the sportswear brand Fortemsportswear. This company is based in the United Kingdom and specialises in both men’s and women’s gym and fitness gear. They take their inspiration from the American West Coast of dressing up but still having that laid back feel to the fashion. Fortem create, design and engineer a unique range of activewear, CrossFit and fitness lifestyle apparel and clothing. They aim to have ultimate comfort and truly limitless functionality. They also want you to feel able to do your best in the gear you are wearing and still look stylish.

 

I have been really impressed with this company –Kieran the founder behind the brand works extremely hard to promote his business. I found that his communication with myself was next to none and very quick. He was really happy to go out his way to help with any questions that you have regarding the gear. Which is brilliant from a customer’s point of view. Makes you really feel welcome and valued. You can really tell that he cares for his business and puts in the extra effort required to make it a success. And it makes me feel really privileged to be given the opportunity to promote this brand.

 

When the garments arrived I couldn’t have been happier with what was sent to me. Every item arrived just as described and really well wrapped. I was sent: Limitless 1/4 Zip Pullover – Black/Red, Pro Performance Racerback Tank – Black/Charcoal and Pro Performance Leggings – Charcoal. All of the outfit fitted me perfectly and it actually gave me a feeling of confidence to be wearing it. I felt that I was really smart and looked the part. Being petite I often find it hard to get sportswear to fit me and to look good on. I was really impressed with this brand. I liked the colours and the design of the gym gear. I also felt that the branding was just right – not too in your face yet you could really recognise where it was from. The quality of the material used in creating the products felt good and not cheap. I felt that I could go for a run or go to the gym wearing these pieces and not worry about it ripping or falling apart. I did feel free to move and not restricted at all in fact I could wear this brand all day every day.  When I was out wearing the pieces I could see people looking to see what the brand was and them taking a great interest. I like wearing brands other than the big names and feel that this brand will be one to watch out for in the future.

 

Here are some images showing the items I received.
