Love ur Look @ The Americana Festival 2013

Americana Festival 2013 

As festival season kick starts I thought I would share with you some of my photos from the first festival for LoveurLook this Summer.

4 days of pure sunshine, 1950s fashion, cars, fun , live bands and dancing.

Its a dog friendly festival so be sure to provide lots of shelter and water for your dog if you do bring him/her! I’m a dog lover.. ūüôā

If you haven’t been to the Americana festival its growing bigger and better each year and captures the love of everything American. ¬†Expect to see people dressed in native Indian clothing, old traditional Yankee style, war time costumes ,lots of very good looking cowboys and cowgirls and obviously rockabilly and ¬†1950’s style dressing up.

It was my first time at this event so I really didn’t know what to expect but it didn’t leave me too disappointed ¬†as the festival offered lots of food and live bands on stage keeping the atmosphere going. If you’re ¬†into your cars , motor-homes ,motorcycles ¬†and fancy taking the family to a fun festival this is one to ¬†consider for next year.

Its still very much in its infancy so don’t expect Goodwood or The big ‘Vintage Festival ¬†standards . ¬†There are a lot of things I feel the festival has to improve upon, especially as its been around for a while now. I hope they can really listen to the feedback from traders and visitors to make the event much better next year.. ¬†I was disappointed with ¬†a few things (which I have expressed ) but these can be sorted out I’m sure.

Looking forward to seeing what Americana has to offer for 2014 , so keep an eye on this one.

Check out the below pictures from the festival, including the catwalk LoveurLook took part in.. For the full gallery visit the LoveurLook Facebook page.

A massive thanks to models;

and Boo Hoo Kitty for organising the catwalk!

Portas Pilot & Love ur Look

Love ur Look awarded Portas Pilot Pop up shop!

What a way to start February 2013 until 10th June 2013 !

Love ur Look has been lucky enough to be awarded a shop under the Portas Pilot Scheme.

The scheme was introduced to help fill many of the hundreds of shops on the high street due to the recession and out of the hundreds of applications for Forest Hill Love ur Look won the chance to fill 10A Dartmouth Road with lots of new and exciting  designs for the Spring / Summer.

Love ur Look Forest Hill Pop up Shop

As well as housing Love ur Look designs the pop up shop in Forest Hill also has some fabulous products from talented  graphic illustrators and jewellery designers giving the shop an truly unique and boutique feel.

During our first week we were lucky enough to take part in Forest Hill Fashion Week which not only launched our shop but hosted a whole range of exciting activities, workshops and entertainment for the local businesses and the community.

To end this fun filled Fashion Week..  Forest Hill showcased a fabulous fashion show for all local designers and shops.

The shop has been open for 4 weeks and we’ve just been asked to stay for another 4 weeks . Celebrations all round!

Pop up Shop 2013 !

At the start of the year I made it a mission to look for at least 3 pop up shop locations and I¬†couldn’t¬†be any more excited to have the opportunity to have a pop up shop through the Mary Portas¬†scheme.

After visiting Thailand where they have whole shopping centres dedicated to new design talent , thus creating a fun, creative, unique and multi ¬†boutique shopping¬†environment¬†. I realise now that the UK could take a leaf out of¬†Thailand’s¬†books, after all its about keeping the economy going and shopping for clothing is a major part of this.

¬†A massive thanks to Mary Portas and other landlords who see the need of this to happen and offer new design set up’s like Love ur Look this opportunity.

If you can’t make it to this pop up .. rest assured I’ll be popping up again near you soon.

New Designs will be added on the 11th March.

Pop up Shop Number 2 !

Love a little pop up shop!

There could only be 1 way to round off the season so more people could fall in Love with ‘Love ur Look’..

Pop up shop number 2 was located in the middle of leafy Dulwich and trendy Brixton.. Herne Hill ; home to one of London’s many outdoor swimming pools was our home of 6 days and nights!

Love ur Look was joined by some truly talented designers . Little Darling and Hart&Bloom provided the fabulous jewellery which was loved by all and Love Raccoon  showcased artwork, illustrations, gifts and cards.

A true success for all with lots of styles flying out of the door and selling out !

We have the taste for Pop up shops.. More to come for 2013!

Love ur Look in the Wilderness

Wilderness 2012!

Another great festival ticked off the list of 2012!

The Wilderness festival¬†situated in the stunning grounds of Cornbury Park is the ideal festival for all those festival virgins.. With an abundance of things to do during the day and night you’ll be spoilt for choice. ¬†It’s a great festival for all ages.. with an area for kids and a relaxation area for adults to do yoga and unwind with mini treatments. ¬† If that isn’t enough you can swim in the lake, relax in a hot tub or dine over a 4 course meal¬†prepared¬†by a top chef in the banquet hall!

At night you have a choice of¬†roller disco , clubbing with top DJ’s and hidden dance spots by the sister festival ‘Secret Garden Party’.¬†If like me you fancy relaxing you can chill out with a cup of tea and cake listening to¬†comedy¬†from some great up and coming talent in the UK.

The Love ur Look ¬†team had a fantastic time .. So much so we didn’t have time to take pictures of all of our fab outfits..

But here are some pic’s of some great customers at the festival.. We’ll be back next year for more fun in the Wilderness!

Click on the images below to get a good look at what we snapped at the  Vintage Festival / Wilderness Festival 2012.
