Inside Grazia HQ: 5 Things We Loved This Week From Fashion Christmas Trees To Tea With Vanessa Bruno
1. Fashion Trees!
We have been on the hunt for the most amazing Christmas tree decorations this year and boy have there been some great contenders. While on our travels at appointments, press days and evening events we have been snapping away at our favourite fashion office trees. Check out these beauties from Miss Selfridge, Harrods, Kurt Geiger and an interesting twist on a traditional tree from Whistles. Now we want to see yours!

Miss Selfridge ran a competition at HQ for the perfect tree - this is a Barbie inspired tree from the shoe department

2. Vanessa Bruno
On a miserable Thursday evening, the Parisian designer brightened up out day with an afternoon of macaroons, roses and pre-orders from the new SS13 collection. We managed to get a couple of minutes with the lady herself who is looking forward to the New Year and her expansion into the US. Her colour combinations of nude and tomato red were a highlight as well as the soft billowing nonchalant blouses.
Antique roses of course!
3. Shoes glorious shoes!
We love shooting season for the influx of fabulous samples arriving at Grazia HQ and a chance to try on the hottest new heels. On three shoots in one week, these were our faves. Manolo, Givenchy, Dior, oh my!
4. Denim world
It has been a denim world this week at Grazia HQ when fashion editor Catherine Nieto tackled next year’s special. Denim arrived by the truck load from the hottest brands of the moment. Prints, pastels, distressed, embroidered you name it we got it! Check out our 15th January issue for the skinny on the latest 2013 styles and colours.
5. Christmas Treats
It’s been a week of treats with brown paper packaging courtesy of Anthropologie, pints of Guinness at Stella McCartney and hand sketched Manolo Christmas cards which have given us ideas for our own festive celebrations. What a fashionable Christmas!
