Last Night in London Town ... Le Scratch "Biggie Take Me Bowling" @ Bloomsbury Lanes

Last night in London town, the Raw Edge Team took a trip down to good old Bloomsbury Lanes to check out the monthly Le Scratch event we were invited to. After raving reviews from its huge launch at XOYO last month, The Raw Edge Team knew it was an event not to be missed.



Live art installations and a dj line up that included Phaze One, Snips, Motive & Mr Verde got the eclectic crowd, especially some of the Raw Edge Team, shaking a leg onto the great sounds of 90s/early noughties hip hop & rnb. An era where despite questionable fashion choices were being made, such genres were at their best! With djs spinning the best of old school and new school we found it difficult to peel ourselves off the dancefloor and onto the bowling alley... So we boogied late into the early morning and to top it off we bumped into one of our favourite presenters/style icons, the lovely Jameela Jamil & ofcourse we loved the attire! 







































Great night all in all & we even  made time for a quick vintage spotting photo moment. Check out photos below...


















































Look out for the next Le Scratch night at Concrete, every 3rd Friday of the month!

Coachella Cool

So Coachella festival is well underway, and we can't deny we're feeling a little blue that we are not out there having fun in California too. However to make ourselves feel better the Raw Edge Team decided to go on a hunt for our favourite festival looks all in aid of getting you guys ready for the festival season!  "What would you do without us?" We hear you say!! No, we don't know either!! Take a look at our fav festival outfits below and say a little prayer for us- that next Coachella, we'll be singing California here we come!!!

The Royal Wedding & THE DRESS

Less than 2 weeks to go, the world seems to have caught the Royal Wedding Fever. Whilst UK residents have been busy planing their Royal Wedding street parties, our main concern here at the Raw Edge HQ is what Kate Middleton, Princess to be, will be wearing on her big day???
For most women the dress is just as important as the actual union of lovers. We are hoping to have sent to us on our big days Oscar de la Rente, Dior, Wang...

Odds so far for Kate's dress have ranged from our fave Sarah Burton for House of Mcqueen (below) and newly Jasper Conran.

Check out below some remarkable wedding dress choices from some of the greats...

Diana & Charles


JFK & Jackie O.



Elizabeth Taylor & Conrad Hilton


Princess Grace Kelly


Bianca & Mick Jagger


What we can be certain is choosing THE DRESS, is going to be such a dilemma for Kate, as with every bride, but more so for the Princess bride. Wouldnt it be legendary if she just pulled a Bradshaw (SATC)...

Sidenote: We are very thankful to the powers that be for giving us all a day off work to dress spot
