Love Niche At NE1 Newcastle Fashion Week

At Love Niche we had the privilege of showcasing some of our unique designs at Newcastle Fashion week with great feedback. The first event was held at the beautiful chandelier room in Assembly Rooms. We featured 5 outfits which included our new evening and resort wear, the below even caught the eye of designer Julien Macdonald as he chatted to us about it at the after party.

On Wednesday we arrived at Tiger Tiger for the highly anticipated Fashion Front Row show which included designers such as Kate Fearnley who has designed for Girls Aloud and designer Dayne Henderson who’s work was commissioned by none other than Lady Gaga!

For this event we added more evening wear and glamour with metallic sequins on a variety of outfits from separates, dresses and a jumpsuit.

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

Newcastle Fashion Week.

Well Newcastle Fashion Week is finally over, and what a fantastically hectic week it was in the House of Love Niche!! We have had an amazing time and met so many lovely people!

We kicked off Newcastle Fashion Week 2013 in style, by attending the official launch party at Mercedes Benz garage for the Cruise Clothing catwalk.

We were greeted with a glass of champagne on arrival and got the chance to look around the ‘bootiques’ and at the dreamy cars, including the official Newcastle Fashion Week Mercedes, before the show started. We were lucky enough to get front row seats for the catwalk, Cruise put on an amazing show, we fell in love with sooo many pieces that we just NEED to have! If you didn’t get to attend the launch or haven’t yet seen the pictures, these are the official photographs.

During the evening at Mercedes we got to sample some of the incredible cocktail creations by Livello bar, including our favourite the Marshmallow Martini (out of this world!) This gave us a taster of what was to come, as we then headed on to Livello’s for the after party in the exclusive members only area upstairs, the perfect end to an amazing launch!

When the clock struck 7 the doors were officially open at the Hood St Club and the guests started to pour in, we were in to the final hour countdown so we were all frantically trying to organise the last few details before showtime!

8’o clock and the models were lined up all looking amazing in their first looks and ready to go. The show lasted for 25 minutes and was split into 4 looks; First were looks from Love Niche- Monochrome, Second were Niche by Nisha Vedhara-Wedding, third and fourth were both the amazing kaftans by Niche by Nisha Vedhara.
