Its a Royal Affair: Kate Middleton -New Style Icon

So last week, the British Media & arguably the nation has fallen back in love with the Royals, following Prince William & Kate Middleton's Wedding announcement. A true fairy tale of university sweethearts which the British public where quick to embrace. The Raw Edge Team wish them good luck and are especially intrigued with whether Kate Middleton will be the next nations style icon. The future royal appeared in a Issa dress ( Brazilian born designer based in the UK who has dressed the likes of Miss Campbell & Madonna) for the official interview post-wedding announcement.

So will Kate wear her favourite designer of the moment 'Issa' for the big royal wedding?

Fashion publications have since got 'Kate Fever'. Additionally, the famous sheer dress Kate wore at a university fashion show is estimated to be worth 200k! Charlotte Todd the dress designer (fashion student) has vowed never to sell the dress. We wish we Kate had worn one of our pieces!!
Kate has truly become an overnight style icon.

Last Night in London Town: Ryan Leslie Gig

The Raw Edge Team can never turn down a good event and yesterday was no exception to that rule. With wedges and fake lashes in tow members of the Raw Edge team and pals headed on down to Fabric despite the freezing cold weather to go and watch the gifted Ryan Leslie perform. It was my third time to see Mr Ryan Leslie take to the stage and it was most definitely third time lucky. He shut it down! Performing outstandingly, jumping from instrument to instrument, connecting with both his live band and the audience and even shedding a tear on stage for the love London showed him- one couldn’t help but appreciate what this guy is about.

Multi-talented Ryan who is a producer, rapper, singer and self-proclaimed “social media entrepreneur” wowed the audience with performances from his latest album and other tracks such as the popular songs ‘Addiction’, ‘Diamond Girl’ and more. My personal favourites of the night have to be ‘Valentine’ and‘Something that I Like.’ Now I really feel that Ryan Leslie deserves way more props for the talent he poses (hence why I no longer have a voice, I was singing, no bellowing out lyrics all night!) So the Raw Edge Team had to shout him out because here at Raw Edge Boutique we appreciate great art when we see it. Check out videos and pictures from the night out below. Enjoy!

Raw Edge Boutique's Designers of the Month

Every month the Raw Edge Team brings forth different collections from rising independent designers. This month Raw Edge Boutique's Designer Shop features Kharise Francis, The Little Magpie and Jacqstar London collections.

Kharise Francis:
The Collection itself is inspired by the designers admiration of the female form at its rawest. Taking the silhouette back to what nature intended, but with a cheeky attitude that 'says I am the daughter of cave woman and I like it'. Pieces include this seasons hottest trends, a mixture of leopard print pieces, and lace LBD's what more can you ask for this party season.

Jacqstar London:
Jacqstar's regiments collections, originally inspired by this seasons military trend. Channels the universal perception of service wear, the collection is based around an army brigade. Each piece depicts the different personalities in a designated regiment

The Little Magpie:

The brilliance behind The Little Magpie's collection draws her inspiration from many areas including art deco, the 20s, Native American and vintage costume. This collection is full of timeless statement piece, hand crafted from real leather. Truly authentic.

Best Dressed Woman of the Year by Harpers Bazaar : Carey Mulligan

English Actress, Carey Muligan, best known for her work in the recent 'Pride & Prejudice' alongside Keira Knightley and her role alongside her ex- Shia LeBeouf in the recent 'Wall Street' blockbuster has scooped Harpers Bazaar's''Best dressed Woman of the Year'' title, beating favourites Victoria Beckham , Kate Moss. Others listed included Alexa Chung, Stella Mc Carteny and Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes.
The Raw Edge Team fell in love with the startlet after watching her performance in 'An Education' where she played a love struck teenager in the 1960s, looking that good in a beehive takes serious skill! Ever since we have been smitten with her effortless red carpet chic, created by her soft pixie crop teamed with classic designer pieces. Well deserved Mulligan!

Lanvin's collection for H&M may be one of the best collaborations yet, capturing Lanvin's landmark brightly crafted pieces at affordable prices. Perfect we say! We've got our eyes on a few dresses and a particular skirt!! Check out the promotional video below, we will definitely be first in line on the launch later this November.
