The fashion world will soon swoop in once again to make its glamorous presence felt in our World Heritage city for Bath in Fashion 2016, an event taking place over April 18 – 24. Nicholas Wylde is delighted to once again sponsor the grand finale fashion show of this week-long event.

Bath has long been the city to see and be seen in. A city shaped by extraordinary creativity and visionary designers from many fields of endeavour.

Today, this always inspiring environment continues to attract highly-skilled and talented people – inventors, designers, artisans, entrepreneurs and future-thinkers. It is against this canvas that Bath in Fashion has evolved over the past five years into a significant fashion event.

So expect many red carpet moments as a line-up of stellar designers (including Julien MacDonald, Nicholas Oakwell, David Downton and Livia Firth) unveil the next trends from the catwalk to the high street.

Taking centre stage is Nicholas Oakwell’s couture gown designed for No10’s GREAT Britain campaign. The exquisite piece was hand embellished with rubies and 200,000 Ostrich feathers by the Royal School of Needlework.

Bath in Fashion’s week-long programme promises stimulating debate, fast paced catwalks and animation on the streets and in-store with Bath in Fashion LIVE, a new element for 2016. 

To register interest and be the first in line to grab event tickets when they become available on February 22, head over to Bath in Fashion’s website for all the details.

title ico February’s birthstone: Amethyst
550 px image
“If the February-born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they an amethyst will wear.”
— Gregorian birthstone poem

For those born in the romantically inclined month of February, amethyst is your birthstone, associated with spirituality, wisdom, sobriety and, of course, with Saint Valentine’s Day.

Amethysts contain the second most abundant mineral found in Earth’s crust – quartz. Like quartz, amethysts are a transparent form of silicon dioxide and an amethyst’s colour can range from a faint mauve to a rich purple. Main commercial sources of amethyst are Brazil and Uruguay but also found in Arizona and the North Carolina region of North America.

Amethyst has a rich history of lore and legend. It can be traced back as far as 25,000 years in France, where it was used as a decorative stone by prehistoric humans.

It’s said that the signet ring worn by Cleopatra was an amethyst, engraved with the figure of Mithras, a Persian deity symbolizing the Divine Idea, Source of Light and Life.

More famously, amethyst is also recorded as the stone of Saint Valentine, who wore an amethyst engraved with the figure of his assistant, Cupid. Saint Valentine’s Day is still observed in February across the world. The word amethyst comes from the Greek word “amethystos” meaning “not drunk,” and was believed to prevent its wearers from intoxication.

The early Egyptians believed that the amethyst possessed good powers, and placed the stones in the tombs of pharaohs. During the Middle Ages, it was used as medication, believed to dispel sleep, sharpen intellect and protect the wearer from sorcery. It was also believed to bring victory in battle. In Arabian mythology, the amethyst was supposed to protect the wearer from bad dreams and gout.

February’s birthstone, the amethyst, was the stone of royalty, representing power. And the greatest power of all, love, we celebrate this and every month at Nicholas Wylde.
