Cameron Silver, founder of vintage emporium Decades, which is loved by Hollywood’s A-listers, was one of the presenters at the WGSN Global Fashion Awards at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London yesterday evening.
One of the presenters on the night, he didn’t fly all the way to London to be a wallflower, so he gave us two great looks – as we’ve come to expect.
Red Carpet: Dressed in John Galliano trench with a black Tom Ford bow tie, white Hermès Sur Mesure shirt, black Gaultier Couture pants and Bruno Magli pony skin slippers, I was surprised to see Cameron, by his standards, looking fairly conservative, but of course there was a twist with these bright red socks. It’s a shame you can’t see the details including satin trims on this exquisitely well-tailored trench coat.
Presenting: Now this is more like the Cameron I know and love. He did a quick change into a vintage Tom Ford for Gucci lush velvet tuxedo jacket with beautiful embroidered details – this picture isn’t quite doing the piece justice. The purple Tom Ford bow tie and Alberto Moretti slippers top off the look perfectly.
From 6pm – 8pm you can meet Cameron this evening, who will be signing his new book, ‘Decades: A Century of Fashion‘, at Selfridges, London in Women on 2.
The book showcases the past 100 years of fashion, decade by decade. Each chapter opens with a pair of women who epitomise rival hot trends, like the luminous Cheryl Tiegs versus the dark Bianca Jagger at Studio 54. The chapters close with a designer of the decade: think Chanel, YSL and Dior at their most fabulous.
