Winter Wonderland…

We’re not quite there yet, but there’s no denying that winter is just around the corner. What better way to enjoy the more bitter months other than to embrace what fashion has to offer and sport your favourite knitwear.   On the catwalks and the high street there seems to be a strong nod to [...]

Many Shades of Purple

If there is one colour you want to be seen wearing this season, it’s definitely the many shades of purple. Berry, Burgundy, Claret, Grape, Lavender, Lilac, Maroon, Plum, Oxblood, Violet, take your pick as they are all a big hit for Autumn/Winter and I for one have gone berry crazy!   Whether you want to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Leather Is Back!

Seasons come and go, people evolve, but if there’s one thing in life that’s here to stay, that’s fashion trends.   One of my favourite trends of the moment has to be leather… and lots of it! Leather has long been a wardrobe staple for the punk and goth subculture, as well as being prominent [...]

Legging Good

In the eighties, it was super on trend to wear them with an oversized baggy jumper and a perm if you dared. In the nineties, it was all about bright colours and patterns, and I am not ashamed to admit, I sported a rather fetching Minnie Mouse pair. However, now they are more of a [...]

Go for Gold!

With the Olympics in full flow, everyone including myself has been infected with Olympic fever. And what better way to celebrate than through our style.   Of course the British flag has been a fashion inspiration this year as it has been incorporated into so many items of clothing and accessories which have been displayed [...]

A Loom of Possibility

Hunched across a rectangular frame, threading and stringing, punching and entwining in reversing and paralleling directions, only to replicate and repeat indefinitely. This was the process for Joseph Marie Charles in 18th century Lyons, France. Later reputedly nicknamed Jacquard, his penchant for fabricating unsurprisingly stemmed from an established family of weavers. Although far from respected or [...]
