Jasper is known for the stunning hand sewn couture glamour gowns, in previous season’s the models have shimmered. Down the runway with large disc sequins,  this season was fresh and new but no less fabulous, Jasper has stepped into a ready to wear style as well as the over the top amazing pieces, seeing pants and separates. also some what of a pleasant shock, menswear.

The AW 14 collection  named ” una Vida bien vivida”  a life well lived, was inspired by the story of Carmen  by Bizet. Set  in colourful and fun Seville Spain. It explores the heat of two lovers, young love, hence the gentlemen on the runway. Every piece beautifully finished and some amazing choices of print and texture and colour, with the J G signature of hand beading

For this season Jasper Garvida has combined a fresh and bold choice of colour and design, most known for his monochrome palette, this season has pure lovers passion, in the intense reds and mediterranean blue,  the collection has a sexual tone but in a vulnerable and gentle beauty. Starting the show with a flamenco dancer, Michelle carrier -la Morenita with the guitarist Steve Homes we know we were in for a fiery collection.

I’m pleased to see a mix of pieces for JG, as it will make a amazing designer more accessible to a wider range of couture lovers, using the most intensely colour full and glamorous jewellery from Jolita Jewellery. Sunglasses from Heidi London, punched up the Summer look. All set in the Bloomsbury hotel, this chic location perfect for such a collection, we were treated to a little champers after and the most fabulous of gift bags. Including some treats from Schwarzkopf whom styled the hair for the show,  I’ve always been a massive fan of JG and after meeting and chatting with his parents, I see more of the passion in such a pint size genius . I look forward with bated breathe for next season.
