After the buzz of of Fashion Week has passed, the London crowd still wanted more. And with that came London Fashion Weekend, the ultimate shopping experience. We arrived at Somerset House in the early hours of the morning. The cold was biting and the girls in sky-high heels couldn’t wait to get in.
Half a day later, well shopped and pampered, it was time for the grand opening. The sure highlight of the evening was the arrival of a vintage-inspired singing duo, Verity & Violet. Sparkling and ready to entertain, the girls dashed off to the cocktail lounge to lighten up the mood of tired fashionistas.
V&V’s style is truly unique—if you heard it once, you won’t forget it (take a listen here). Jess & Loui mix the old, well loved songs with the new beats. Their repertoire stretches from timeless classics to modern day ballads. From the way Jess and Loui perform you can tell the girls have a place in their hearts for every single song they sing. Amongst their personal favourites (and ours!) are ‘True Blue’, ‘Material Girl’ and ‘Don’t Speak’.
‘We have done something unique with them by taking a song we all know and giving it a vintage feel,’ say V&V.
Jess and Loui are best friends and both come from an artistic background. Less than a year ago the girls decided they wanted something they could call their own, something they could truly stand for. And so Verity & Violet was born. Since then they have been taking London by storm.
Moving at such a rapid pace, what does V&V’s future look like? They respond: ‘We would love to record an album! Beautiful, vintage classics with a V&V twist.’
We wish the girls good luck in all their ventures and hope their contagious positive aura will not fade away.
‘The only thing that can be hard at times is that this world is unpredictable. But we love it so much that we just embrace the industry with all its flaws. It’s amazing what you can achieve if you stay focused and upbeat.’ •
