However, one of the main ladies, Lydia Bright, offers a different slant on this stereotype. Okay, so she may not necessarily be understated (a girl can still wear heels by the pool, ok?) and like any other fashion loving 21 year old, a love of high street brands is apparent, but teaming upcoming labels like 18 & East and Virgos Lounge with her classic ladylike and vintage inspired style bring a little something not often seen in the shows cast.
So, when did you first become interested in fashion?
I always grew up around fashion. My nan, aunt and mum were all buyers, so I was just bought up into it, beginning a great passion and interest.
How would you describe your style in 5 words?
I’d say fifties inspired, girlie, floaty, colourful (I never wear black) and glam.
For those that haven’t visited, how would you describe Bella Sorella?
Bella Sorella encapsulates my personal style. It’s very vintage inspired- beautiful and what you’d probably say is a little girls dream. It’s very pretty, with lots of cupcakes, chintzy home wares and lots of pretty clothes- which I wear a lot of!
Who, or what inpires your personal style?
I’d probably say my oldest style icon is Carrie Bradshaw. I loved her when I was growing up, but have also grown to love the 50’s, particularly, Brigitte Bardor and Marylin Monroe.
High street wise, I love Miss Selfridge, Virgos Lounge, New Look for basics and of course, my own shop!
Which are your favourite upcoming brands?
Virgos Lounge! They only really began in the last year, and I love literally love everything from the Look Books!
What’s next for Lydia?
So at the moment, I’m in progress of designing my own clothes range. I’ve been holding out a lot, but have been studying different designers and the catwalks at London Fashion Week to help me with working on my own collection. It should be out around Autumn/Winter and it’s a bit like me really, with lots of tailoring, rich velvets and autumnal burgundies and purples.
