A Day in the life of a Les 100 Ciels Designer

A Day in the life of a Les 100 Ciels Designer

A common misconception about fashion designers is that their days are spent languidly dreaming up inspiration for collections and sketching new designs. In fact, this is only a small part of a designer’s role. Fashion designers are often working across multiple seasons, ensuring that all is well with the current Spring/ Summer collection while designing a collection for the Autumn/ Winter season and keeping an eye on trends and looking for inspiration for the Spring/ Summer season a year ahead. It’s a lot to juggle and often not the glamourous life that many envision when they think of the fashion industry. So what exactly does an average day look like for a fashion designer? This week we take you behind the scenes to experience a typical day in the life of Les 100 Ciels designer, Dizar Angel. 9am: Dizar starts her day reviewing fabric and yarn swatches that have arrived from our factory. She needs to give feedback today to confirm her designs can be made into samples using her chosen qualities. 11am: Meets with the marketing team to give suggestions and feedback on a Summer photoshoot planned for the end of February. 12:30pm: Lunch break! Dizar makes a sandwich ...

A Tour of South Molton Street

A Tour of South Molton Street

Last year, we moved to the lovely South Molton Street and ever since, we have been busy exploring the shops and eateries in our new area and we have found some gems! The street is as central in London as any one person could get and is very convenient to get to as it runs diagonally from Bond Street tube station straight into Mayfair. Being a stone’s throw away from the bustle of Oxford Street’s shopping mecca you are very close to all the action, and so it is surprising and refreshing that the street has a laid-back and relaxed feel to it.  The street is wide and pedestrianised and lined with a mix of independent businesses with lots of surprises for all. Read on to discover what we have found so far in our forays down our street. After leaving the bustle of Oxford street, you may be in need of a sit down for a coffee and pastry, and Caffe Concerto is just the place for a rest either sitting on the terrace or watching passersby from the comforts of the cosy interior. There is a nice buzz to the place and a large menu to choose from including delicious, vegan options. After ...
