One of London’s hottest new shopping destinations, One New Change, teamed up with GQ on Thursday 27th October 2011 to celebrate their first birthday by hosting three unmissable fashion shows!
With stunning views of St Paul’s Cathedral, One New Change is packed full of high street and designer stores plus is also home to the city’s most exciting new restaurants from Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey.
The GQ fashion show took place on the 6th floor of the shopping mall and featured brands such as Banana Republic, H&M, Hugo Boss, Reiss, Ketroy, Springfield, T.M. Lewin and Topman. Some of this season’s must-have trends were incorporated into the array of stylish outfits plus all of the ticket proceeds from the fashion shows will go to The Prince’s Trust.
Layering of tops, jumpers and jackets was seen throughout the show which is a perfect look for winter. Skinny and slim chinos and cord trousers made for sexy silhouettes whilst herringbone, tweed and earthy tone jackets, some featuring elbow patches, added a countryside edge to the outfits.
Neutral shades of black, navy, brown and grey were mixed in with shades of green, red, orange and claret – a lovely autumn/winter palette. Chunky knitwear such as cardigans and jumpers were worn over shirts for a smart, casual take on daywear. The range of versatile jackets and coats complimented the variety of trends throughout the show, from double breasted to pea styles. Checked is a must-have print for this season too and adorned shirts and jackets.
Stunning suits in a variety of styles were kept classic and clean. Smart shirt and tie combinations are ideal for day and evening or for a more casual vibe, a grey suit jacket and trousers were teamed with a mustard sweater – a great update to the working mans wardrobe!
A fantastic show to celebrate One New Change’s first birthday!
