Bring Out The Vamp In You…

Just in time for Halloween, the vamp trend is hitting new heights this AW12 season. The resurgence of punk is at its pinnacle, so why not get involved and bring out your inner vamp!   Choices, choices! There are so many ways you can wear the vamp look this season. Versatility is a must, so [...]

Head Your Way Into Fashion

The Autumn/Winter 2012 way to make a bold statement – are you ready girls? – is to purchase a hat. It has been the job of jewellery, bright colours and footwear in the past, but now, headwear has been swiped in, to head the way in fashion through the cold months.   If you haven’t [...]

Baroque: A New Take On An Old Classic

Baroque…The material that always reminds me of Christmas. Perfect for December festivities, red carpet events or just dressing up around the house, it’s fit for a queen, quite literally.   Whether it’s Lanvin’s gold and black baroque dress, or Dolce and Gabbana’s baroque military-esque jacket, this design is destined to make you feel like a [...]

Texture Me

It’s exciting seeing the high street stores being stocked up with all new Autumn/Winter collections and I’m loving it (not the cold rainy weather though). I’ve noticed lots of textures about so far this season so what better way to keep warm and stylish whilst snuggling up in a comfy fluffy jumper. Everyone will be [...]

Elite Model Look Final 2012

  On my first day of working with Elite, I didn’t know what to expect.   After spending time with the team at the Newcastle scouting event, I knew everyone was friendly and extremely welcoming, but I still had those natural butterfly nerves which occur every time. As I found my way off the tube [...]

LFW: Top Trends SS13

Daytime metallics, dungarees and a continuing fever for all things sport featured heavily and often humorously (see Maarten van der Horst’s take on his Tesco inspired outfit) at London Fashion Week. Here’s a peek at next season’s top trends. Metallic’s Mermaid metallic’s stood out, especially in outerwear. You may think sequins and metallic leather jackets [...]

CORRIE NIELSEN SS13: The Perks of Being a Flower

Fringe award winning Corrie Nielsen’s SS13 show was certainly one of the most looked-for ones in the first day of this London Fashion Week. “I’ve put my all into this collection. It’s probably my most stressful to date, but it will be the most remarkable!” stated the rousing Central Saint Martins graduated designer days before [...]

The Lady Is A Vamp

All things dark and brooding continue to reign on the catwalks. But the season’s indulgences couldn’t be further away from the vampire teen franchise we have become accustomed to. These are not the reds we are accustomed to either. Burgundies, maroons and subdued ruby colours are autumn’s rebellion against a summer of coral and striking [...]

The Hi-Top

I have never been a fan of the trainer, and luckily it has never been considered ‘fashionable’ to wear them. In fact I dislike trainers so much it took me forever and a day to decide on a pair that I even remotely liked to wear to the gym. After my first wear, I decided [...]

Fresher Fashion

You’re moving away from your home city and have a million and one things to worry about; making new friends, paying bills for the first time and having to navigate your way around different streets. These are the primary worries for most fresher students but once you’ve settled in and attending lectures through the day [...]

A Fashion Week First

  I can vividly recall the moment when fashion lured me into its fickle grasp… I was standing in a school corridor wearing denim flares, and a pink studded t-shirt. Naturally and rather cruelly, this look is a lot more chic right now then it was back then, hence the merciless teasing of my class [...]

Autumn/Winter Trend Alert

Winter warmers… in September? I know what your thinking, I feel your pain! Believe me, I wish it wasn’t this time of year already but with our unfortunate summer (or lack of) and the weather set to fall even further down hill, it’s about time we think about our winter wardrobe!   With rain, storms [...]

Lana Del Rey for H&M

As if my girl crush on Lana Del Rey could not get any bigger! A successful artist and now a well deserved fashion icon gracing the world with her exquisite image; the beautiful singer/songwriter has only gone and become the face of H&M’s ‘LA Noir’ collection for this season. Already having her own range of [...]

Sexy Snakeskin

Everywhere you look there seems to be something in a snakeskin print.  Whether you are brave enough to don pants or a dress or simply want to add a splash of the print, this is one trend we absolutely love.   It was big last autumn/winter and its’s still going strong.   Click images to [...]

Designer watch: Carlos Campos

I’ve recently been offered a job to work as a content writer for a menswear fashion website which was the inspiration behind my article. I haven’t written as many menswear articles as I have women’s wear, as I’ve always thought this to be a little out of my comfort zone. But now in spirit of [...]

London Fashion Week 2012

London Fashion Week 2012 has kicked off today at London’s Somerset House and with a bang. The finest Spring/Summer 2013 collections are scheduled to be showcased by designers such as Sass & Bide, PPQ,  Dominic Jones and many more as the weekend ensues.   The exhibition itself is presented over two floors, revealing some of [...]

Make Your Mind Up Fashion Faux Pas Critics!

Now, do correct me if I am wrong, but this year fashion has taken a very gigantic leap back around, and around again, straight into the direction of the 90s era! I am a 90s girl at heart, in body, and soul, but I definitely do not remember it being the decade of incredible style [...]

Phoenix Cosmetics at New Zealand Fashion Week

Annoyingly it was raining outdoors and the wind had already whipped my previously well-styled hair into a limp, greasy mess. Fortunately, the indoor show at Auckland’s massive Events Centre for Phoenix Cosmetics provided enough rainbow-coloured catwalk action to brighten everyone’s day.   Sampling four sets, the show began with some hip-hop breakdancing and a runway [...]

Fashion Week is Nearly Here!

It’s September and for the fashion world that means a non-stop procession of catwalk shoes and designer presentations. From New York and Milan to London and Paris, Dolce and Dior to Gucci and Giorgio, it’s a world that many may aspire to but few devotees ever infiltrate. However…   Last season (it’s always S/S or [...]

Stand To Attention

September is now upon us and our favourite high street stores were in a serious hurry to stock up on autumn/winter trends after our abysmal summer.   I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I get way too excited at the prospect of new season clothes and I start wishing I had a diary [...]
