FOR DOWNTOWN GIRLS WORLDWIDE

Ashley Williams stood alone this season holding her debut solo show, fresh of the back of Fashion East, last Sunday.

Of course the WAH babes were on hand, armed with the new WAH London products, to finish the look on the beauty front. The girls used black polish ‘Heart of Darkness’ to give the nails that slick statement look, fitting with the makeup that defied the trends of the season. A drawn in eyebrow, a neon shadow, a deep lip and a black nail may sound a little OTT, but Williams managed to make it click.

The WAH London colour of choice contrasted with the pinky hues, yet matched the more mono looks, perfectly complimenting the vibrant prints and glittery goodness within the show.

Each piece of Williams’ collection saw an eclectic mix of east and west, flowing into stronger oriental influences as the show progressed. Think neon coloured rubbers and glitter bras mixed with traditional Asian dress and say hey to one dream combo!

Slogans were collaged in various texture and colour, giving each look individual recognition and making for a girly, seriously unforgettable aesthetic that totally reminded us of grunge teens in the 90s.

We love a tad of vibrancy here at WAH London and Williams certainly didn’t hold back. The clash of punky and rebellious vibes with a nod to Asia equalled a fun collection that certainly lightened the mood. It was Williams’ fun graphics (and that neon eye shadow!) that made us remember why London Fashion Week still has that edge no other city can mirror.

Yesterday, Sunday 17th August, we headed south to Brixton Jamm for The Cookout Party.

The sun was (just about) shining, the Vita Coco was flowing, the chicken was barbecuing, and of course the tunes were pumping. What else could you possibly need? Oh, a ball pit. Obvs.

Our nail menu was inspired by all things ghetto fabulous…

We got everyone ready to rave the night away, with DJs playing until the early hours of the morning. You could even add a shot of rum to your coconut water for £2.50, which us Wah girls might’ve done once or twice once work was done!

This Sunday get down to Brixton Jamm for serious summer vibes! We’ll be there from 4-6pm doing BBQ inspired manis…

On Saturday August 9th, the WAH crew headed down to Waterloo for the opening of House Of Vans.

Described as the “physical manifestation of the culture and creativity that have defined the Vans brand since 1966” the space underneath Waterloo station houses everything that feeds into the Vans ethos. An art gallery, a VansLab artist incubator space (where we set up), cinema, live music venue, premium café and bars, gifting suite and London’s only indoor skate park - of course.

We dished out complimentary manis to match the Vans distinctive branding. Free zines, great food, and of course hanging out with like-minded Wah gurls - what better way to spend a Saturday?
