One of my favourite activities at Bath in Fashion is attending the fashion talks and book signings. They’re very intimate and quite personal. Last year I went to see Manolo Blahnik interviewed by Iain R Webb (this picture is from the book signing) and Stephen Jones interviewed by Sarah Mower. Stephen Jones had also curated an exclusive exhibition at the Holburne Museum. Bath in Fashion offers some amazing world class events that would rival any fashion capital. This year there are quite a few fashion talks
- Looking at the Wardrobe of the King of Pop – a talk by Michael Bush, the genius behind the Michael Jackson’s costumes
- The Jacobean Catwalks: Fashion and Faces at the Court of King James – Sir Roy Strong, former Director of the V&A and the National Portrait Gallery, discusses the complexity portrayed in the special exhibition at the Holburne of portraits of court costume
- Beautiful Freaks: From Blitz Kids to BLITZ magazine – Bath based fashion author, Iain R Webb, discusses his latest book, “As Seen in Blitz” which chronicles the 80s fashion scene
- Talks at Topping & Company book store with Kaffe Fasset,
- Sasha Wilkins of LibertyLondonGirl will be discussing numerous fashion-related topics
Lunches with Amanda Mackenzie Stuart to launch her book “Diana Vreeland Empress of Fashion” and Chloe Fox discussing “Vogue On…Alexander McQueen”

Attending a wedding is one of the best ways to celebrate the weekend and the New Year. It’s life and love affirming plus you get to dress up! I was surprised how many women wore black and many of the women regarless of age wore little fur or fake jackets or stoles – actually even one of the men wore one too.
Here is a glimpse of the wedding dress – it was stunning and took over 300 hours to make by eleven people.

I like hats. When I’m wearing a hat I feel very self-conscious but at the same time quite special. Hats have always been an indicator of social status – perhaps this is why we feel special when we’re wearing a hat, or it might just be the whimsical nature of hats with so many delightful trimmings!

The beret has been around for ages and has generally been worn in the military since the mid-20th century. Although military is not a big trend this season I think the beret will be great for this Autumn/Winter 08! I love this Chanel beret; I tried it on and it’s so cute!
If it’s a bit out of your price range just look for a beret at Accessorize they have loads of styles starting at £8.00. Customize it with a couple of cool broaches, badges or even flowers. This is a good opportunity to check out your what’s in your mum’s or grandmother’s jewellery box!
