A teeny veer away from fashion in this post. Radio/TV presenter, style icon and new mummy Fearne Cotton launched her new collection with Very yesterday. The launch was held at the lavish Home House in Portman Square and I couldn’t resist going along to check it out.
Fearne has already designed 10 fashion collections with Very making her one of the most successful designers for the online retailer. In her speech she stated how much she loves interior design and wanted to design a collection that incorporates her own style by using different prints and vintage shapes. I was even told she took inspiration from her nan’s house for the Very Fearne Home collection.
Gok Wan came along to support her collection launch. With a very cheeky sense of humor booing as she entered the room to give her speech. I also spotted Company Magazine editor Victoria White and the Daily Telegraph fashion director Hilary Alexander checking out the collection.
Fearne also designed cat prints dedicated to her beloved cat Rudi. Puuurfect (sorry) for the cat lovers out there. It also looks like my kitty Salem who lives with my mother. He won’t even look at me now, cats are fickle creatures.
My favourite piece was this decorative mirror. I want to sort out my spare bedroom which is home to my wardrobes, shoes and all round dumping ground. Into a sort of dressing room. This would be fabulous.
Eva modelling an oriental print rug. I never usually take her along to blogger or press events and she was surprisingly good. She wasn’t the only tiny person to attend. Fearne’s little baby boy Rex was there looking super duper cute with a gaggle of gushing ladies around him.
I had to show you the mini garden that came with the invite. Such a sweet touch and the cress has already started to grow.
I loved so many pieces. I loved the whole kitschy boudoir feel to it. I know absolutely nothing about interior design so I am just making up words here. Luke has taken over the furniture in my house and in turn it looks very masculine. Think chunky brown furniture and wood…and big tvs. I think I might just start putting something pretty here and there until I have the space I want!
So what do you think, any pieces you like?
