Steal Leah McFall’s Style On Shopcade!

on

Leah McFall

We offish have a new girl crush and her name is Leah McFall! Looking awesome in her new vid for ‘Home’ with the equally stylish Will.i.am, we caught up with the gal who dressed her, our Designer Store favourite Nikita Karizma!

What kind of look was Leah after for her new video?

Leah’s stylist was looking for iridescent, pastel, fluffy, holographic pieces and loved our new KARIZMA collection!  He pulled in a lot of pieces for her music video shoot and performances in LA. 

We were working on a custom long sleeved neoprene crop for her also, but we are so pleased she wore the baby pink fluffy heart top as it looked super cute on her in the holographic iridescent music video.

 

What do you love about Leah?

She is a phenomenal British talent, we loved to collaborate with her for such a special moment in her career and wish her all the best.

Love Leah’s look? Then you can get the EXACT piece on the Designer Store right here. Get it or regret it, it won’t be around for long!

So what are you waiting for? Get sharing now and whilst you’re at it take a sneaky peek of the girls strutting their stuff for ‘Salute’ below… can you spot the pieces Nikita designed?

 

 

As HUGE fans of Little Mix here @Shopcade HQ, it was a total no brainer to team up with Nikita to showcase her amazing designs on the girls and we’re sure you’ll agree, they look amazing!

We caught a quick five mins with the lady herself to chat about designing for a music video vs her own collections and just how she would sum up Little Mix’s look in Salute…

What was your inspiration behind the design?

Little Mix wore clothes from my Spring/Summer collection in their latest music video for Salute. The shapes and structure of garments in the collection were inspired by female power and there was a strong underground feeling of London in the collection.

Do you tailor each piece to their personality?

In the past I have made clothes based on the girls’ personality and style, which is a fun way to collaborate with Little Mix as they are four individuals in a girl band. For this collaboration, however, their stylist simply pulled in clothes from my collection that she felt was right for their look in the Salute video.

How different is it to design for a music video than to design your own collection?

Pretty different! With a music video it is a collaboration between the designer, stylist, music artist, management, record label, producer, choreographer and well, the list goes on! Also the music industry works around the clock so it is normally an intense few days! With my own collection, I take a few months to design and create it and it’s completely a solo vision. I listen to Little Mix’s music in the studio sometimes, so it is interesting to see my clothes in their video after their music has also been in the background whilst I am designing.

Which do you prefer?

I do love adapting my style and collaborating with the music industry as it gives another dimension to the fashion pieces, whilst on the other hand with my own collection its completely an individual creative expression! I enjoy them both equally, but I do love the journey of seeing clothes from my collections end up in the hands of the world’s most cutting edge music artists and producers.

Finally, how would you sum up this look?

POP GIRL POWER.

We couldn’t agree more!

Shopcade Hits The Stylist Rail

For one day only, The Stylist Rail popped-up in Shoreditch’s Hoxton Hotel so I headed down there, as a stylist myself to see what I could find to add to my own rail.

Placed in the apartment area of The Hoxton Hotel, the atmosphere was buzzing as the DJs played the right tunes to keep shoppers happy whilst rifling through the rails. With previous labels from YSL, Acne, PPQ & Holly Fulton mixed in amongst new, young designer collections there was something for everyone!

Curated by the fabulous Plum from Plumdiddlyumcious blog, the event has gone from strength to strength! Starting in a bar, Birthdays in Dalston, passing through to a charity event at The Sanderson Hotel and now being hosted at The Hoxton, one girl’s dream has now been given the seal of approval from Grazia, StylistTime Out and now of course ourselves here at Shopcade!

For those that needed a style over haul pre LFW, style consultant, Emma from Back of the Wardrobe was on hand to help you compose two outfits with a discount too! Double deal!

With a complimentary gin cocktail to hand on my travels I met some great young designers such as Nikita Karizma who has worked on The X Factor, dressing the likes of Little Mix and The Style Merchants who are stylists currently setting up their own shop. Exciting times for fashionistas!

It was a great afternoon to meet with like minds, support our fellow fashionista and have fun! Stay tuned as we’ll have some great features coming up in the next couple of weeks from Plum, NIkita and others!
