Yesterday morning I worked the "Inspired by Minnie Mouse" event at Somerset House, a showcase which celebrated the inspirational and timeless style of one of the world's most prominent style icons. With her fun and distinctive look, Minnie Mouse plays a key role for many young girls during their first fashion experience; drawing inspiration from this, a handpicked selection of international designers were asked to create one off "must have" pieces to be unveiled during London Fashion Week. 

The outcome has been spectacular. Despite being created by different designers, when exhibited alongside one another, the pieces seem to belong as a set, each celebrating Minnie in its own, unique way! All of these garments and accessories are up for auction HERE, and proceeds will go to the BFC (Bazaar Fashion Arts Foundation).

Here are some snaps of just a few of the designs - head over to the the Ebay auction to see the others! All of the pieces are gorgeous but my personal favourite is the Giles Deacon dress - it's so beautiful! Which is your favourite?

Because I was working the event I had to wear all black, this didn't bother me though because I personally can't wait for autumn trends to be in full swing! Dressing for colder weather is so much more fun than wearing summer clothing...big possibilities are endless! I wore a black tee with a metallic knit jumper over the top of a playsuit from Topshop, I then added polkadot socks and painted my nails red as tribute to Minnie!
