LFW: Sequinspiration at Topshop Unique AW13

Thank goodness for the digital age which was able to bring me to the f-row of London Fashion Week's Topshop Unique AW13 show. Topshop partnered up with Google to continue their quest to deliver creativity and innovation to their customers. You may have watched the live streaming of the Topshop Unique AW13 show which included a 'Model Cam', a 'be the buyer' moodboard app and a 'Google Hang Out' which spoke to the design team at Topshop headquarters. This digital experience fused beautifully with the catwalk looks, with exposed midriffs, contrasting fabrics,
sparking sequins and oversized coats in shades of ash, blue and pink. It seems sequins will be lighting up the high street this AW13, as supported by WGSN's trend forecast at the recent Pure London Show.
This got me thinking about what sequins I own and I think I once had a light pink bandeau top which got a lot of wear on the dance floor! Sadly, it is no more but having had a look on the Oxfam Online Shop, you can start getting sequin ready for AW13 now with some of these great buys. If too many sequins blind you, why not try sequin detailing on accessories like scarves and handbags for a subtle sparkle.
