Harvey Nichols Birmingham Fashion Show 2012 + Infiniti

On Saturday, I have attended the Harvey Nichols Birmingham Fashion Show 2012. Like previous years, it was amazing, from the organisation of the event to show sequences. Hopefully this year, I know how to take photos in a fashion show and which settings would be the best. However, I still need to learn more!
If you are looking for some style tips, photo gallery would definitely help you to have some inspiration for different combinations. There are some of the best bits from the show, and the rest is on Facebook Page!
I have habits from taking cars pictures but they are not ideal for taking pictures of models :) 
And this year, the event was sponsored by Infiniti, and there was FX35! I hope to see more car brands involved with fashion event. Please, next time let us know before the event ;)

Best perfume for your Bentley and Rolls Royce

Perfumes and cars are not directly related with each other. As the cars tends to make smoke and horrible smell for many years, nobody ever tried to put them together. Until the French car manufacturer, Citroën offered some kind of perfume kit for interior. But I have never seen someone who likes that stuff!

Recently Italian fashion brand Dsquared introduced a new perfume series called Wood. It name is not that attractive like other perfumes and I ignored its advertisement on magazines. When I saw it in stores, I found it interesting! The bottle was covered with wood! Yes, matte wood. If you are interested on cars, you will understand what I am saying. Wood, a real wood looks magnificent inside the car and light wood interior looks much better than carbon fibre. As I saw the wood covered bottle, I tried the tester. Surprisingly, it was smelling better than I expected. Dsquared2 was never in my radar, as it is charging huge amount of prices for their designs. Contrary, the wood covered and has the impression of interior of a luxury car was a great idea.

Actually Porsche Design should have done this earlier with their metal covered perfume bottle, because I never liked it. It has the impression of forgotten car part. And nobody wants to have a bottle which looks like a air filter.

If you are planning to buy a perfume and have a cool looking luxury bottle, try Dsquared Wood. Honestly, it can be purchased just for the bottle also. However if you own a Rolls Royce or Bentley, you can ignore it, because you already have enough wood inside your car :)
