Lauren Aquilina

Lauren Aquilina

 

Have you heard of the great new singer/songwriter Lauren Aquilina? The 18 year old has a beautifully powerful voice and loves jones+jones. Her new music video is out now and guess what?! She is wearing not one but TWO jones+jones dresses in it! Her latest single is currently number 5 in the iTunes chart so you should definitely check it out! The fun loving young girl not only loves our dresses but is a massive fan of biscuits find out all about her below:

 

1. What jones+jones dress do you love the most?

I think ‘Vicky’ is my favourite! I have it in red and lilac.

 

2. Describe your style to us?

It’s pretty chilled on a day-to-day basis. You’ll often find me in high waist denim cut-offs and loose-cropped tees. However, for video shoots and photo shoots I love to wear really dramatic clothing that I maybe couldn’t get away with if I was just going to the shops! I really play on that.

 

3. Where do you enjoy wearing jones+jones the most?

I’ve worn jones+jones in two of my music videos now, which has been great. The dresses really flatter my body shape so I don’t feel self conscious in them at all. I’ve also worn a jones+jones dress to pretty much every party I’ve been to in the past year haha! They’ve kinda become my thing.

 

4. Where do you get inspiration for your music?

Mostly from my personal life, I think its really important that lyrics are honest and that that comes across in the song. I also sometimes overhear people’s conversations or take inspiration from my friends and family.

 

5. Have you always enjoyed dressing up?

I was never really into dresses when I was young; I think as I grew up and my body started to change I got more into it. There’s something amazing about walking into a room in a jones+jones dress and a pair of heels when people are used to seeing you in jeans and t-shirts.

 

6. We’ve heard you like biscuits, what’s your favourite one?

Chocolate bourbons! That’s another Aquilina thing. I’m literally obsessed. It’s bordering on ridiculous.

 

7. If you could have a tea party what dress would you wear from our collection and what biscuits would you supply?

Probably the ‘Alice Liberty Print’ dress – its so floral and summery! The colour is lovely too. I’d definitely want some shortbread involved, maybe some hobnobs, and obviously…bourbons!

 

She’s definitely one to watch not only for her music but her great choice in dresses!!

jones + jones in the DCU Fashion Show!…x

We were so excited to be part of the amazing DCU Fashion Show for the second year running last Tuesday! The event, sponsored by Diet Coke amongst others, showcased modelling and design talent from across Ireland as well as collections from top high street brands ranging from Zara to H&M, Jack & Jones to jones + jones!…

 

 

The theme of the show was ‘High Tech Heritage’,  which chairperson of DCU Style Society, Susan Gorman, described as a celebration of  ’…our fast-changing, internet and media rich world merged with the rebirth of vintage clothing’. From the sparkling sequins on the Julia Dress to the edgy structuring of the Nicky Dress, the full and flirty forties and fifties inspired skirts to the on-trend textural florals, we think that the gorgeous selection of garments showcased from our S/S 2012 collection perfectly encapsulated the theme alongside the projections and social media used.

A huge thank you to all of the stunning models and a special thank you to Aoife Fitzgerald and our fantastic Concession Managers in Dublin, Aimee Harden and Zara Andrews! You can find all the stunning dresses on our website here and in our amazing concessions in select Topshop stores including Topshop in the Jervis Shopping Centre and in St Stephens Green in Dublin!
