There was a time that designer shoes and handbags were the candy styling to a catwalk show during fashion week, then Sophia Webster came along and it made it cool to go crazy over pretty accessories. Each season, her elaborate and enchanting themes make more of an impact and for autumn/winter 2017 we were treated to a Narnia-esque ice palace that you entered through a record shop, complete with a giant snow globe, artificial snow, ice sculptures and snow cones. ‘I scream for ice queens’ was a little bit of a departure for the fun and quirky footwear designer, gone were
Do you remember when I promised more videos? Well, I decided to do something a little different for my fashion week content and do a vlog, I know get me.

“The Markus Lupfer woman never sleeps,” apparently, “she glides through her day, transitioning from work to play with easy charm,” so the only question I have to ask is how do I become a Markus Lupfer girl?
