The Raw Edge Team Loves: Glastonbury 'Girls' Style Edit

The REB Team had major 'Glaston-envy' this time round... couldn't make it to this years festival, but boy were watching closely from the sidelines. Beyonce, first woman ever to headline Glasto, stunned her critics into silence by showing the rest of the world why she 'runs this mutha.." by her phenomenal all singing and all dancing set in HEELS!! Her performance rebirthed some good old 90s girl power spirit within the REB Team as she belted out bangers including 'say my name', 'irreplaceble' & her much loved new single here at REB HQ 'best thing I never had'...

New lines coming soon to 

The Raw Edge Team Loves.... (June 2011)

1.  Friendship Bracelets/ Adorned Wrists
There has been a progression in our multiple ring obssesion onto a multiple bracelt obsession.. If your friends will not buy you any friendship bracelets please have no shame in buying them for yourself, remember ''you are your own friend''. Chuck contrasting styles on for effect; from woven fabrics to plastic beads, charms, you can even slap on your Tiffany/Links in there if you want, along with bejeweled bangles and any other metals/ fabrics you can find for the perfect decorated wrist!  Need some more guidance...take some notes from one of our fav bloggers -

2. We will always ONLY love a CHUNKY SHOE;  Jeffery Campbell - Lana Platform Boot. Tbh we love all Jeffery Campbell shoes  & must take/acquire a pair on our up coming world tour.

Nicole Richie's Brand 'House of Harlow' Cat eye's are a must have for us this summer; automatically adding a vintage vibe to your outfit!

5. Alexandra Wang - Rocco Bag -  This bag  came out a while back but we are still in love with this bad boy.

5. Zoe Kravitz - love child of Lenny Kravitz & Lisa Bonet this young lady was born to be a style icon! Loving the cleaner boho style evolution we have been seeing over the past few months, this young actress is certainly one of fashions hottest 'it girls' of the moment.

The Raw Edge Team were invited down to this years GFW, once again, & ofcourse we were delighted. We love the opportunity to be in proximity with fresh talent & creativity at it's rawest, especially when its from great front row seats! Despite our hectic schedule here at REB HQ, we managed to make it down to the Gala Show.  Rory Longdon from Nottingham Trent University won the  highly coveted Gold prize of £20,000 to help establish himself as a designer. We were totally happy with the judges choice,  his collection caught our eye on the runway, loved his metallic knits...

That £20,000 cash prize should surely put him on track to LFW one season....defo staying tuned...
