Last week we held a fashion event at Shoreditch House with Jenny Scott founder of the amazing Mothers Meeting group. Jenny Scott set up in the networking work, after the birth of her son. She wanted to find a way to bring together creative talents juggling the new pressures of motherhood and seeking time to keep a sense of self. It is a fantastic forum where mums can meet off line and online.
We teamed up with Stevie B, celeb stylist and master of the wardrobe to chat with the Mothers Meeting crew about the new demands on our wardrobe motherhood brings.
What were the main fashion necessities now?
- Ease, Comfort
- Looking stylish, and put together.
- Changing body shape
- Ways to make an outfit look smart without effort.
The Fashion Winners from the Kj’s Edit
The Mothers Meeting championed these Kj’s Laundry favourites and took time to test drive a few looks pulled together by Stevie B.
Dr Denim, road tested by many mums and given the thumbs up for comfort and shape. We saw these teamed with smart and relaxed looks , looked great teamed with wedges.
IRO – the classic wool jacket. The ultimate jacket to add instant effort, given a rapturous applause on our mothers meeting model.
Ilaria Nistri Roque Jacket
Described as ‘edgy and wearable’ the mothers meeting said this was an wardrobe up-dater of the highest order.
