Have you been to the GAP lately?

I don't know when I last went to the GAP - it's really been so long ago that I don't remember. A friend said to me recently have you been to the GAP lately, you really should go. I knew that Rebekka Bay launched COS in 2006 and had joined GAP in October 2012 but that Gap Inc. reported a 5 percent dip in sales for the first quarter of 2014 - I was curious to see how she would re-shape the brand.  Sometimes it just takes a couple of seasons to sort everything out. I was genuinely...

Yellow!

Yellow is all over the high street today. You can see it in the shop windows of French Connection and the moment that you walk into  Zara it's a sea of yellow. I'm going to wear yellow - it's been so grey I feel need an injection of vitamin C and somehow a yellow dress might just be the thing that I need. I love black but recently I've been wearing a wonderful pink coat from MING and now I feel so desperate for colour. Lots of yellow in COS and shift dresses are easy to wear in any...

Mannequins This Week In London

I love seeing how shops merchandise their window and how they dress and what kind of mannequins they feature. This week my favourite windows were Zara on Oxford street. Punk and 80's inspirations - loved the pin curl wig - very Givenchy A/W 13 Loved the oversized cards at Beyond Retro. 90's grunge and oversized headphones at H&M. H&M Topshop New Look Gap Great hair at...

Trends for Spring! Prepping Bath in Fashion’s Spring Catwalk Show

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 are so many events including Roland Mouret in conversation with Susannah Frankel, Fashion Director of Grazia Magazine, Julie Verhoeven in conversation with Iain R Webb and Sasha Wilkins of...

Bath in Fashion Blogger Award!

I'm one of the judges for The Bath in Fashion Blogger Award and I've spent the weekend reviewing fashion blogs. I don't often or really ever get a whole weekend to sit down and read tons of blogs so it's quite a treat. I love just reading about how people love fashion. Many of the blogs I'm reviewing - the blogger works or is in university full time and just loves fashion - which somehow makes me very happy. I work in fashion and I'm always thinking about the customer - the wearer - will they...

The Duffle Coat & Paddington Bear

Paddington Bear was my first introduction to the duffle coat. I think when I was little my brother had a duffle coat in camel too. The duffel coat is a classic but it can look so cool on the right man. Love this Joe Casely-Hayford Duffle Coat for John Lewis in Navy £299. The coat was a collaboration with the Gloverall coat company with authentic features such as the washed wooden toggles, which are fastened with real jute. Gloverall was established in 1950 and the coat is part of a...

William Tempest and River Island – Interview

I've styled for William Tempest for several years and he's always working on a variety of projects. A few seasons ago he did a range of dresses for John Lewis as part of their focus on emerging and established fashion talent including Yosman Yousefzada, milliner Philip Treacy and footwear designer Terry de Havilland. This is William's second high street collaboration. It's a 13-piece collection that's part of the British Fashion Council in conjunction with the River Island Design Forum...

Airport Shopping

Are you shopping before you even reach your destination? Well at Terminal 3 in Heathrow there are so many shops: Bally, Gucci, Harrods, Hermes, Miu Mui, Bulgari, Paul Smith, Chanel, Pink, Mulberry, Jo Malone, MAC and Zara - and there are still loads more. I'm a big fan of airport shopping. I have my own preflight routine: Boots for any last minute toiletries, WHSmith for a few magazines and water and then of course a bit of clothes shopping! When I pack for myself I take the bare minimum so...
