I had been looking forward to styling this show for months. There were so many people involved as the clothes were original Biba pieces belonging to different collectors and one of the main collectors had worked with Barbara Hulanicki at Biba. It was such a privilege to work with people’s personal archives. What was interestingContinue reading
It’s interesting to see how retail is changing. All Saints has created a fully operational film unit with chief creative director, Wil Beedle. They’ve developed a film company focusing on music and fashion, and the videos are more interesting than your average fashion film or commercial – the films are still all about All SaintsContinue reading
While in Bath I went to Debenhams to look at H! by Henry Holland while preparing for the Bath In Fashion catwalk show. There are very few London Fashion Week designers that are aimed at the young fashion market, but H! by Henry Holland is: a dress costs about £40 and jeans are £28 soContinue reading
We needed some sunny weather so we’ll start spending! I’ve spent the past couple of weeks meeting retailers and listening to them all recount the same story – it’s been an abysmal month and they are not moving their spring stock. Some retailers said that they’ve been able put their orders on hold, others areContinue reading
Bath in Fashion illustration by Julie Verhoeven Since the 18th century Bath has always been a fashionable place but in the past few years the fashion crowds have been making their way back to Bath. This is Bath’s 4th season of Bath In Fashion – and each year it gets better and better. There areContinue reading
I’ve been a fan of Olivia Rubin for quite some time, and I’ve got quite a few of her dresses in my wardrobe, so I was quite happy to find out that she’s designed a collection entitled ‘Postcards From‘ for Dorothy Perkins. She’s previously done collaborations with ASOS, Oli.co.uk, Very.co.uk and Dune. Olivia is knownContinue reading
Lulu Guinness is just so super cute. So when I heard she’d done a 14 piece t-shirt collection for Uniqlo I knew I wanted to pop by the event and buy a t-shirt. The queues were long but happy shoppers didn’t mind as they were not only given an opportunity to have a special postcardContinue reading
H&M is launching an ethical collection called ‘The Conscious Collection‘ for spring. Eco-fashion is more than a trend. In the UK events like Esthetica have changed peoples views on what ethical fashion looks like. It’s designers like Noir, Ada Zandition and Junky Styling who have pushed the boundries of ethical clothing and understood the importanceContinue reading
Early this morning there was a massive and orderly queue outside H&M on Regent Street. It was the launch of the much anticipated Lanvin for H&M line, and the queue actually went all the way down the street and around the corner. Also out early this morning was Jessica Bumpus of Vogue.com doing ‘Street Style‘Continue reading
I recently passed by the Ace shop near Clapham Common and it’s quite a cute little shop.They sell lots of new and nearly new items, and they have quite a few high street brands – you can by a dress for £5 and designer shoes for £20. I bought three books for £1.50! The AceContinue reading
Strolling down Oxford Street amidst LFW madness I happened to notice French Connection’s new advertising campaign and for some reason I just can’t get it out of my head since. The big bearded fella is etched on my mind and I just can’t work out why. Up until quite recently I was working part-time atContinue reading
This is one of Mark Fast’s dresses from his A/W 2009 collection. I love his cobweb designs – they would make great pieces on their own – if you’re brave enough – or great layering pieces. I’m a big fan of layering! You can purchase Mark Fast at Browns starting at £285.00. We can’t allContinue reading
Beth Ditto for Evans shot by Rankin! Sequines is everywhere this summer and this one is only £65 and the leggings are £18. I love this trend as it never really seems to go away. Love the domino print – it’s only £45! London is known for it’s great high street and Evans has alwaysContinue 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 myContinue 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 seemsContinue 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 togetherContinue reading
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 stylesContinue 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 haveContinue reading
