The Mencey Fashion Room is only in its second edition, and with 40 rooms of this beautiful 5 star hotel full of fashion, beauty, music, decoration, workshops and cakes, it's definitely the most popular shopping event this side of Christmas in Tenerife. Being invited by blogger Nadia Persa to view five designers from Gran Canaria Moda Calida, seemed the perfect opportunity for me to catch up on some last minute Christmas shopping and meet up with the blogging fraternity, Island-side! Todas chicas guapísimas: El Mundo de Mis Palabras, Well Living Blog, Me My Heels and I, MODA Canaria and Cafe con Clau, it was fun meeting you!
Although her brand is only three years old, Elena Rubio is fast becoming known for her swimwear - for both woman and children, as well as her 'Provençal style' communion dresses. Today though, Elena was launching her women's AW2014 capsule collection and mainline together with another younger label Cristina Arragon, designed by her daughter. The collections focus on the trimmings and I particularly liked Cristina's short sleeveless top with feathers starting at €55.
