Former X Factor star, Alexandra Burke owns the stage performing at The WellChild Charity Event back in March. Alexander looked every inch the rockstar wearing Liz Black’s iconic jacket from her Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Complimenting Liz Black’s edgy 3D jacket were a matching pair of silk shorts from the designer.
The WellChild Event raised over £130,000! A huge well done to the star for participating in such a wonderful cause.

Liz Black’s AW14 London Fashion Week presentation took a bejewelled turn this season with our exciting collaboration with Face Lace. Both Liz Black and founder of Face Lace, Phyllis Cohen were inspired by the works of artist, Salvador Dali.
Liz Black like the artist that she has proven to be, honoured the work of Salvador Dali by transforming some of his most iconic paintings such as the ants, moustaches and lips into walking masterpieces. Staying true to the source of inspiration face lace brought the concept alive with the make-up paintings of ants crawling up the arms of the model, Lobsters around the eyes of the models and gorgeous pearled lips on their hands. The concept and designs captivated the wonderful world of surrealism and were the embodiment of that which is truly ethereal.
“Dali would approve” –Liz Black

Wearing a black and white Liz Black classic from the SS13 collection, Kimberly is the true embodiment of elegant femininity and sophistication at the OJAM Charity Event back in June of 2013. The former pussycat doll had her handsome model husband (then boyfriend) Max Rogers on hand for the event. An incredible £1 million was raised at the event for Cancer Research UK! Congratulations to Kimberly Wyatt for participating in such a worthwhile cause.

Ready, set and go! Everyone was ready for the Press Day to begin. Cupcakes and sparkling wine were on hand as guests arrived to peruse the new AW13/14 collection.
Mannequins stood stoically and led the way to the showroom. The chequered floor brought the abstracted world of Wonderland to life, and let the garments sing without contention.
The Queen led centre stage, while the Hatter and Rabbit watched from the sidelines. The presentation music playing in the background, led you down the rabbit hole to a world of abstracted patterns and structured elegance.
Thank-you to everyone who attended, it was lovely seeing you all!
