Daring in Fashion with Magnum: Trend Talks with Lucy Reber

Ice cream and fashion are probably two of my favourite things in the whole wide world. So when they come together for an event, I had to go along and see what it was all about. On a very rainy evening, I head to the Magnum store in Seven Dials with my fellow bloggers Vix and Jess. The first thing that struck me about the store was how colourfully it was decorated with lots of opportunities for us social media lovers out there to Instagram to our hearts content. There were bejewelled Magnums in glass cases, an Instagram booth, very photograph worthy flat lays, multicoloured benches and the Magnum x Moschino pieces in glass cases along the back. I started the evening with making the very difficult decision of what Magnum I wanted and what toppings I would have on it too.

I chose the milk chocolate Magnum double dipped with three toppings, gold leaf, petals and I honestly don’t remember the third one. I was mesmerised by the girls dipping the Magnums artfully into the different layers and creating works of art with the ice creams.

I was impressed by my Magnum and took so many photos of it before the fashion talk started. The first half of the talk was presented by Lucy Reber, fashion editor at Stylist magazine. She talked about fashion through the ages before talking about her top three daring fashion trends coming up in Autumn:

  • Bold Colours There is not getting  away from the brights in the Autumn and all the catwalk shows have been showing some aspect of bold reds and blues incorporated into them. Reber suggested that you could bring in one statement piece into your wardrobe and keep the rest of the outfit neutral.
  • Seventies fashion The 1970s are not going anywhere when it comes to fashion and it will definitely be around in Autumn. Reber suggested that you could style a 1970s style suede coat with your outfit or wear medallion like jewellery for a more toned down look.
  • Metallics Metal colours like bronze, silver and gold will be prominent next season. Reber advised that you could bring in an aspect of metal into your daily outfit by bringing in a silver skirt with a black top and tights.

The founders of Tatty Devine Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine were also at the event who took part in an interesting question and answer session about the beginning of the brand and their inspirations. Both had trained as artists before they started the brand and a lot of their story revolved around taking a chance and saying yes to opportunities. True ladies after my own heart! I love Tatty Devine as a brand as it keeps its values at heart. I was surprised that Harriet still does all the creative for the jewellery, almost 20 years on since it first started.

I had a great time at the Magnum store and it was great fun to talk about all things fashion and meet the Tatty Devine founders Rosie and Harriet.

I hope you enjoyed this post, don’t forget to give it a like and my blog a follow if you did,

    Hi Sanoobar,

    I notice from this post, that you are a fan of laser cut acrylic jewellery… If you’re interested, I’m giving free Tuition on how people can design and make their own items from home. I hope you’re inspired, and here’s my website:
