February is a big month for flowers. Beautiful bouquets shrouded with different meanings and emotions are exchanged as a token of love and affection. But did you know that everything from the origin of a flowers name to its distinct characteristics are infused with symbolism? Each bouquet tells its own story that deserves to be cherished. Spoil your valentine this year with a floral gift that’ll last far longer than a bouquet.
It’s official, we’re in the fiery depths of autumn, and from the looks of things, there’s no going back anytime soon. The wind’s blowing, the leaves are golden, suddenly an umbrella has become something we can’t leave the house without “just in case”, but it’s time to embrace it! That’s right, we’re immersing ourselves in all things autumn, and do you know what? It’s not all that bad! Snuggly blankets, all the reality TV you could possibly watch, and even better – the perfect excuse to get crafty! With Halloween just around the corner, there are plenty of little ways to prep your home for the season!
On Friday 18th September, the BFC show space at Brewer Street Car Park was filled with the scent of home fragrance house Ashleigh & Burwoods’ A Thousand Rose Petals fragrance for the Fyodor Golan SS16 show.
The show exhibited Fyodor Golan’s bold designs for SS16, which included a collaboration with Transformers, tapping into unseen artwork from the 80s to create unique, geometric prints. A common theme of red, pink and yellow roses ran through the collection adding an edgy, feminine aspect to the show which was strongly complemented by the soft release of Ashleigh & Burwoods’ A Thousand Rose Petals. A blend of rich, velvety roses enhanced by warm spices and sparkly aldehydes filled the air, adding a new and creative dimension to the Fyodor Golan collection. A combination of Ashleigh & Burwoods’ A Thousand Rose Petals room sprays and reed diffusers were used to veil the room with fragrance.
The olfactory aspect greatly enhanced the experience, helping the concept behind Fyodor Golans’ SS16 collection to really come to life. Releasing scent into what was already anticipated to be a visually stimulating show created a true sensory experience, the likes of which added a fresh touch to London Fashion Week.
“A lot of the fabrics featured in the SS16 collection include floral patterns or retro flower features in them and filling the venue with a really gorgeous floral scent, “A Thousand Rose Petals”, from Ashleigh & Burwood really tied the whole experience together for me”.
