Not content with just having a twice Award Winning Age Defying Daily Moisturiser under their belt, Crème du Loch have launched two new products to help complement their reigning champion: - The Age-Defying Daily Serum and the Age-defying Daily Eye Concentrate

The new products also contain Crème du Loch's winning ingredient - their own blend of highland spring water and sea loch kelp.

What makes sea loch kelp such a winner in the beauty industry I hear you say?

Answer: After bio processing, Scottish Kelp Extract has many ways to defy the ageing process with the help of its vitamins A, B1&2, C, D, E and minerals zinc, iodine, magnesium, iron, potassium, copper and calcium.

Kelp sets out to protect the skin against external daily pollution, UVA rays, free radicals and other environmental stressors. Helps to protect collagen which is essential for skin elasticity and prevention of the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Kelp also helps reduce the appearance of breakouts with its minerals and anti-inflammatory properties. Plus it can help calm and soothe dry skin due to its high iodine content. Definitely a superhero ingredient!

Vz Perfection SS23 Collection - Iridescence

With a title of Iridescence, Vz Perfection by Vaishali's collection was sure to be an explosion of colour.

A colour palette of iridescent hot pink and purples, these luminous colours seem to change when seen from different angles.

Outerwear also received the iridescent touch plus much more. The hot pink silk coat was adorned with a digital printed velvet collar, cuffs and back panel. The digital design was of the feather featured in her brand logo. The paler coat of lilac, pink and silver panels is made of raw silk, satin silk and textured silk.

The collection included ombre dyeing, handmade lace and embroidery

For those who prefer a dark classic colour for their eveningwear, never fear as dark purple appeared with just a flash of hot pink peeping through slits.

The finale dress was an ombre mid length gown with statement blouson sleeves which loosely tied together at the back to form two long wide trains - giving the overall impression of a huge bow.
The collection was shown during London Fashion Week at Fashion London UK runway show held in the Royal Horseguards London Hotel.

Omar Mansoor Summer 23 Collection - Margilan

 Named after Margilan, a city in the Fergana region of easter Uzbekistan, Omar Mansoor's collection uses black as his main colour palette with pops of multi-colour ikat fabric, handwoven in Uzbekistan.

Omar's black represents the confidence, assurance and vividness whilst the multi-colour trimmings and sleeves depict vibrancy.

Ikat is a unique textile patterned by dyeing the threads before weaving by using environmentally friendly dyes.

The city of Magalan has been famous for its traditional weaving of silk since the old days, and is still preserving this tradition focusing on high quality handmade goods - feeding their silkworms with mulberry leaves, dyeing the silk with natural mineral and vegetable dyes to weaving the silk.

As a campaigner of sustainability in fashion, Omar uses fabrics made up of a mix of new and recycled fibres in his collection as a means to care about our planet and the future of the fashion industry. This is also a step forward towards shifting fashion from a linear to a circular model.

He also proved that evening wear made from recycled fabric can look equally glamorous.

This year, Omar showcased his collection during London Fashion Week at the Fashion London UK runway show held in the Royal Horseguards London Hotel.
