We pass by so many objects & images each day that we become desensitized. I passed by this sculpture the other day and it just made me start thinking about why we notice some things and not others. Art is always subjective and visceral. I liked that this sculpture is outside in front of the…Continue reading

I think I can walk in high heels. I just blame the shoes if my feet hurt but is it the way I’m walking in my 5 inch heels that’s actually causing the pain? The new edition of the Legwork out High Heel Fitness DVD is out! It was designed by New York multi-disciplinary Kristin…Continue reading

I love Pink’s look in the video U + Ur Hand. I think she looks amazing and iconic. Pink might not have the most beautiful face in the world but that has nothing to do with her style power. Pink’s always has such a strong look and you always remember her. She’s done this from…Continue reading

Pearls have always been fashionable but they do come and go.  Just remember, these are not your grandmother’s pearls but oh wouldn’t you be so lucky if they were! Expect to see more pearls this season, and layered up. In times of turmoil we look for stability and pearls are just perfect for that. It’s…Continue reading

I love Grace Jones. She’s everywhere right now and she’s releasing a new album in November, Hurricane – it’s her first studio album to be released in 19 years. She’s also on the cover of Dazed & Confused November issue with an art special in a 12-page visual collaboration with photographer Chris Cunningham. Grace Jones…Continue reading

Jeff Larson, a prominent Republican consultant and the chief executive of the local host committee for the Republican National Convention, paid for Sarah Palin’s new wardrobe. It’s no shock that the clothes will be given to charity after the election as why would Sarah Palin wear them twice? Let alone claim $150,000 USD as income…Continue reading

I’m not a fan of the puffy down coat. I lived in Winnipeg for a few years and the long down parka is just not a flattering look. When you’re in high school you don’t care about being practical or about being cold, even if it’s -30 and you’re waiting for the bus. To my…Continue reading

I don’t like to break the illusion of fashion. It’s beautiful, fun, even unobtainable; it’s the dream. I love fashion and everything about it. I’m not the kind of girl who skims a magazine – I read magazines cover to cover. I like things that are aspirational. It might be a beautiful photo shoot, or…Continue reading

Actually I really would and I’m not really a bag girl. I do covet many things but I get to live vicariously through my shoots and everyday experiences as a fashion stylist. So oddly enough I don’t feel a great need to own a great many things, but I do seem to need a new…Continue reading

Trying to match fabrics can be quite a challenge. I spent my whole day looking for the right shade of purple silk chiffon. It’s amazing how long and difficult it can be to find what you’re looking for, even though London has so many fabric shops… On my travels I ran into the talented Isabella…Continue reading

I love London and Montreal. They have several things in common: 24 hour bagel shops and cool fashion. I don’t miss the winters in Montreal but I do miss its passion & style. When I miss Montreal I’ll head off to Brick Lane for a bagel cream cheese or salt beef, then I’ll go for…Continue reading

I could easily wear something from Patricia Field‘s shop in New York and I already have a drawer full of M&S underwear, but why am I reluctant to buy Patricia Field for M&S? I love the black sequin dress  – you could have it for years in your wardrobe – for only £125.00 it seems…Continue reading

Sometimes I think London is a city made up of hundreds and thousands of design studios. There are so many jewellery, milliners and fashion designers – this is what’s so special about fashion in the UK – so much talent in one small place! Hemyca is a London based design team. We were paired together…Continue reading

Up and coming girl band Stonefoxx performed their media showcase at the Soho Revue Bar to a full house! So many elements are involved in making/creating/developing of a girl band. You have to have the right girls, the right management, the right music and sound, the right production and the right look and style. So…Continue reading

Fashion and Music just seems to go hand in hand so it’s no surprise that the Sugababes launched their new album "Catfight And Spotlight" with an instore private fashion show from JC Castelbjac! Caroline Shapiro head of PR at Marchpole Group with Lee Lapthorne. A model with the JC Castelbajac signature kiss!

I love a good online chat!  Fashion editor Khabi Mirza and assistant fashion editor Laura Jackson of Drapers typed away until their fingers were raw giving us the hits and misses of this seasons catwalk. Things to pay attention to: Khabi Mirza:  "The oversized bag trend has almost entirely disappeared in favour of structured styles…Continue reading

Some things are not for everyone, but isn’t that what fashion is all about – personal style? Well, I love these Chanel shoes and yes if I had the chance I would wear them. They are sequine goatskin open-toed shoes with a light bulb as a heel that actually works! Over-the-knee statement boots. You’ll have…Continue reading

Keira Lyn Rathbone is a Type Writer Artist. I took a picture of Keira typing away at On Off during fashion week. Keira studied fine art but she’s self taught in type writer art! I just love it and her look!
