Push PR A/W 2012 Press Day

Last week I attended Push PR's press day at the rather swanky W hotel. Rumour has it Nicki Minaj was downstairs at the time! I had a great afternoon discovering some of their client's new collections.

Alice Menter

I was really impressed with Alice Menter’s debut jewellery collection. The British designer transforms nuts, washers and zips into high end jewellery. The ‘Isla’ and ‘Ruby cuffs are hand woven using sliver and gold plated nuts to create a chain mail effect. She also designs bold statement collars and necklaces. 

Eastern Mystic 

Eastern Mystic’s jewellery is inspired by India’s rich culture. They used clashing colours and sparkling gemstones to produce statement piece. Each piece is hand made and limited edition. I really liked the beaded bracelets with spike detailing from the tribal collection. 

Abilu Creations 

Abi Lu describes her creations as wearable art. She designs eclectic, colourful jewellery and seeks inspiration from a variety of sources. The collection includes chunky gold necklaces, charm bracelets and a nautical inspired strand with anchor, mermaid and seahorse creations.  Each piece is handmade and many are identified with Abi’s signature plectrum. My favourite pieces would have to be the vintage style post stamp necklaces. They’re inkeeping with the jubilee inspired trend and would make lovely gifts too.  


Fabel’s jewellery collection featured handmade silk ropes adorned with charms for you to mix and match. The Nautilus collection has bracelets in range of colours. I loved the cuff style rope bracelets. The bands and leather cuffs are perfect for that festival chic look. They have magnetic clasps meaning they can be layered or worn on their own. 


Nelly have recently launched in the UK. They’re the number one online fashion retailer in the Nordic region offering over 800 brands and producing 20 of their own lines. They provide a one stop shopping experience with womenswear, menswear, jewellery and beauty products. Their latest designer inspired collection boasts bold floral prints, metallic's, whimsical bird print shirts and pretty vintage style dresses. I loved the beaded detailing on the shoulders of the green dress. Their shoe collection features loafers studded with silver and gold, and brightly coloured heels perfect for summer.

Tara Starlet 

Tara Starlet is a vintage inspired fashion brand. They’re inspired by the 1940’s and 50s, the pin up era, and the silver screen starlets of the time. Their designs are cut to a fifties silhouette. Their summer collection features tropical print bralets, tie tops and skirts making ideal beach wear. The new Autumn/Winter line features tweeds and check patterned capes, a hot trend as seen on the recent Autumn/Winter catwalks. They’re holding a sample sale this Saturday at 5a Gransden AvenueLondonE8 3QA from 12-5pm. 

Victoria Plimsolls 

Victoria Plimsolls are available in a rainbow of colours in the traditional laced or eyelet design. I really liked the Jubilee inspired plimsolls laced with red, white and blue ribbon. Apparently Fearne Cotton has recently been sent a selection, if they’re good enough for Fearne….!


Tusting produce handmade leather luggage, briefcases and handbags and have been established in the UK for over 130 years. Their luxurious bags are available in a range of designs to suit your needs. I loved their bright coloured pouches and the box style bag.

Holistic Silk

I love the scented eye masks from Hollistic Silk. Inspired by cute kitsch prints as seen on the summer catwalk at Prada as well as retro girly patterns the masks are filled with Lavender for a relaxing sleep. They also have animal prints designs and luxurious brocade detail patterns. Their slippers contain magnetic massaging insoles providing a real treat for your feet! They also design relaxing pillowcases and yoga mats.

Which are your favourite collections?
