Love Niche London Fashion Show: Pop-up Shop and Catwalk Show

Love Niche London played host to a pop-up boutique and catwalk show at As You Like It in Jesmond last week to celebrate the launch of our brand new website

The guests were welcomed by us with a class of bubbly as they all took front row seats and patiently waited for the show to begin.

The catwalk showcased models wearing our brand new Love Niche London collection which is now available to buy online. There were various looks created on the catwalk with the models hair styled by North-East’s award winning hairdressers Hooker & Young. The looks were from casual day looks to glamorous night out styles, all of which were then available to buy from the pop-up shop at the end of the show. Alongside the clothing was decadent costume jewellery, scarves and clutch bags.

The highlight of the evening was the fashion show, giving the fashionistas in the room a taste of what to expect from the studio’s brand new diffusion line Love Niche London. The collection brings you the best of British high street fashion at guilt-free prices. All the looks shown on the fashion show were in the price bracket of £15- £55. The looks were styled by fashion stylist and owner of Love Niche Studio Nisha Vedhara.

The collection was dominated by current season trends including soft sorbet shades and winter florals, with dresses and blazer style jackets complementing cigarette patterned trousers with bralet crop tops, and finally outerwear for the upcoming winter weather. Each look was styled and complimented with some of the most luxurious jewellery.

This week’s styling tip!

Summer is already here…! And you have decided to spend some holidays in a wonderful area surrounded by heavenly beaches with sun shining bright on you. There you want to flaunt your new bikinis and swimsuits and look glamorously hot.
Looking glamorous on the beach needn’t be a chore – a few simple fashion tips that anyone can follow will help you achieve that sexy, sun-kissed, glamorously chic look that will take you from beach to bar with ease.

These can include a beach bag, some killer sunglasses, a comfy beach towel, gorgeous flip-flops, wedges, Audrey Hepburn style sunhats, fun colourful jewellery, a flattering swimsuit that’s suitable for your body shape (We did a post on it before. Click here to read all about it). But for us the list doesn’t end here.

These days Every wise girl knows a trip to the beach is incomplete without some form of beach cover up – something floaty and fabulous to pull on over your swimsuit between sunbathing sessions. Hence for that ultimate chic glamorous, we feel you need some flowing kaftans that will instantly take you from the beach to the bar and make you look at feel fabulous.

This Summer we launched our range of Cruise/resort wear Niche by Nisha Vedhara for Newcastle fashion week 2013. Click here for the designers launch interview with Etc magazine<a title= The theme of the collection was “Beach to the Bar” the collection consisted of some fun accessorised bikinis and kaftans in flowing fabrics like georgette, silk chiffon, colourful prints, beaded necklines, tassel etc. We are so proud to share that the collection was hugely appreciated and has been extremely popular 🙂 Click here for some more pictures from the launch event.

Present in every fashionable girls beach bag, the kaftan is quickly overtaking the sarong this summer as the perfect way to cover up on the beach. Traditionally, a full length and voluminous silhouette is best but new variants on the kaftan include shorter, straighter shapes, billowing sleeves and plunging, embellished necklines. Adapt your cover up from day to night by adding some clever accessories – wear a wide belt pulling the kaftan in at the waist for a sexy hourglass style or pull on some shimmering metallic sandals or wedges for a chic evening look.

Here is a glimpse of our collections of silk kaftans that will make you look and feel amazing, to take you from daytime to evening in a matter of seconds. The collection is available for purchase at the Love Niche studio

This week’s styling tip!

Ever feel stuck in a rut when it comes to colour? Maybe it’s because you don’t know what to put with what or sometimes wearing a bright, bold or different colour feels too overwhelming for you and as if you’ll draw too much attention to yourself. We suggest you start by introducing colour through adding subtle hints. Either through Accessories- like a handbag, shoes, sunglasses, a bright watch or a bold bra peek out or maybe a bright bold vest. Our pick of the week is a neon vest.

This Black drape top shown below is one of our Best Selling tops available for purchase at the Love Niche Studio. Here is how we added a subtle hint of colour to a basic Black and white outfit.  The neon just peeps through from the front cut and similarly from the back. For the ones who say we dont do colour, we suggest you try this, its subtle showcasing of colour but it can simply brighten up your day.nilpp

And for the ones who feel they can carry more colour  than that. Here is another pick. An Aztec print drape top with neon orange trim. Surely to grab attention and make heads turn 😉


Colour is fun embrace it and enjoy it. Here is a food of thought before we go…


Hope you Enjoyed our post. xx

Tk-Maxx launch Newcastle.



Last week we attended the launch of a new fresh store in Newcastle city Centre…TK Maxx! We headed down for 10am after the morning rush, unfortunately we were too late to be gifted with one of the 500 £10 gift cards! Music, sweets and friendly staff greeted us on entering the store, as soon as we arrived we realised this was not just any ordinary TK Maxx.

To most people as soon as they think TK Maxx words such as bargain, hunting, deals, on trend, discount and designers come to mind! However for a few its not a very enjoyable experience (especially for men) they don’t get the thrill from rummaging through the endless rails trying to find that special item! We asked a few men their thoughts and opinions on TK Maxx and the overwhelming response was that they found it “a waste of time trailing through rails” (Nahhh!!) “it’s just a big jumble sale” “too hard to find something in my size”

However if they ventured into the fresh Newcastle store we think they would be surprised by how easy it is to now find that special bargain they crave! Sections were clearly marked and organised into sizes.1 tk maxx

In our eyes we found the new store a haven for all the beautiful things we love, imagine shoes, bags, endless rails of gorgeous clothes and an impressive home accessories section..heavenly! For us it is an absolute delight searching high and low through the rails, because when we do find that big designer item we feel a sense of achievement, its exciting! Then when we look again and its our size and at an affordable price (Voila!! ) we just want to jump up and down, its been our lucky day.

This is exactly how we felt when we were at the TK Maxx store, which was inaugurated by gorgeous Donna Air who is a tv presenter and actress, Newcastle is actually her home town.

The best part about the fresh Newcastle store was the ‘Gold Label’ collection. With an average ticket price of £100 each item features a distinctive black and gold ‘Gold Label’ swing tag with a very interesting message its says ” Very Important Purchase” and it surely is. The Gold Label collection is available in only 22 stores in the Uk. At the Monument Mall Tk Maxx it was handily at the top of the escalator upon entering. We were in awe of the collection they had, and we found ourselves being held there for over an hour alone! This little zone of temptation had designers such as ; Dolce & Gabbana, Viktor and Rolf, Red Valentino, See by Chloe, Lanvin, Emilio Pucci and Versace to name but a few.hy

So naturally we raided the rails to find our favourite pieces and decided it would be fun to pick out some key hot pieces that we ‘Need to have’ or ‘Want to have’ however after trying on some items we realised they didn’t fit in either of the two categories, so instead they moved to a new category of ‘Have to Have’ and ‘Can’t live without!'(pheww!!)

These are our clicks from our little fashion show we performed in the changing rooms 🙂

First up is this fabulous versatile Emilio Pucci blouse, as soon as we saw this we knew this was going to be a ‘Have to Have’ key item! Everything from the monochrome print (very on trend this season ladies!) to the fit of this blouse is so flattering, this is how we styled it; We paired it first of all with a fitted panelled pencil skirt, secondly we teamed it to go under the figure hugging Nanette Lepore dress. The Pucci blouse was affordable at only £169.99 from £850, and we found it was the perfect length to wear just as a cover up over a bikini, perfect for the up and coming holiday season! The Nanette Lepore dress was a bargain at £79.99!

Another one of our many favourites was this elegant Red by Valentino mac. One of the most vital pieces for the British weather A Mac is an indispensable piece in any wardrobe. It was unfortunately too big for both of us, but we still gave it a try as we couldn’t resist trying it on and thought we should know how it feels before we can suggest it to someone who might fit in it. It was fabulous with the delicate lace insert and lace bow. A mac is an essential item that can be worn all year round with it being waterproof which is a key feature for us Brits! It is also light enough to be added just as an extra layer in those colder months. So we styled it over the Pucci blouse and Nanette Lepore dress as shown above, we found this look perfect for a late Spring/ early summer work wear outfit choice. The Valentino mac was an absolute steal at only £199.99! We were amazed at this price and would be very surprised if this was still up for grabs (we can only hope!)

Other favourites of ours included this gorgeous netted blouse by Dolce & Gabbana, and this lime green blouse by Lanvin ( Love Alber Elbaz) both styled with the panelled monochrome pencil skirt. The D&G blouse was one of our more expensive picks being sold for £269.99, however it was originally £1,810 so in our eyes that is such a bargain! The Lanvin blouse is the perfect piece for adding a pop of colour into a dull spring wardrobe and can be styled in many ways, this pencil skirt just being one. It was priced at £199.99 down from £1,000, which is again a rather large price down, We would class these blouses as investment pieces, as they are still quite expensive but they will serve you well!


If you are unable to go into a Tk Maxx store, don’t worry! They have a great online store click here to browse the ‘Gold Label’ range if you cant resist the temptation anymore.

Happy Shopping!!
