Derek Lam Is Hanging At The Ranch

Derek Lam was lassoing in the leather, the suede, the silks, the fringing, the hats, the fur to reveal to us fashionistas that the trend-spiration for Fall 2010 should be down at the ranch in the Wild Wild West

An alternative and relaxed manner in which to have fun with your fashion

It is time to dig out the cowboy boots..

Bibhu Mohapatra ... Vintage?

Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2010 Collection was inspired by the movies: Il Conformista and Metropolis

This collection inspired me to think !Vintage! and immediately want to shop !Vintage!

Loving the third collection from this designer! The fur is adding on elegance already to a collection which oozes class!

Watch this space!

Mardi Gras

February 16 is Mardi Gras - or the final day of Mardi Gras celebrations depending on the city

Get in the Carnival atmosphere and wear multi coloured, sequined, glitter - with what you wear - clothes, accessories, make up, hair

If you can't beat them .. join them!

Any excuse ..

Ouch Even Agy Can Be Fashion Road K!ll

At Naomi Campbell's 'Hope for Haiti' fundraiser fashion show in NYC, Agyness Deyn took to the catwalk in Burberry heels

She fell once ...

She fell again ...

She eventually took off the shoes

All with a smile - I don't see no diva here!

Bensoni Fall 2010 Collection (falls down with haste)

Not lucky enough to be in New York City this week, never mind attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week to witness the premiere of the Fall 2010 collections I had to resign myself to the internet for pictures and reports of the collections and what the inspiration was behind them

Behind the collection of Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon of Bensoni, the inspiration was a grandmother tailoring a wardrobe to fit a contemporary style. The pieces themselves demonstrated a large variety of fabrics and tailoring. However, there was little continuity to the collection and perhaps this was the objective so Bensoni could reach a range of individuals. Whilst the more casual pieces seemed to reveal hours and effort of input, the evening dresses hinted at a sizeable last minute thrown together DIY attempt at elegance. Most notable in the dresses was a white piece with black fringing. What some may wish to call a ‘Monet’ dress; one that looks oh so good from afar, but what is going on when you study it up close?

The fringing automatically brought to mind false eyelashes which had been hastily added on to a LWD (little white dress) to create designers own take on the LWD

Less haste next time Bensoni

Central Saint Martins

I was originally going to start this blog post reviewing an article in Sunday's Observer about Louise Wilson and the famous Central Saint Martins

However rather than tell you what I think about this insight into the opinion and experiences of the director of the MA Fashion Course - have a read for yourself

Remember it has not been an easy runway to travel for those successful graduates of Central Saint Martins (Gareth Pugh, Christopher Kane, Mark Fast - to name (drop) a few)

Burberry L!ve

Burberry are the latest to announce a live streaming of their show on February 23
However, Burberry have gone that extra step further with the announcement that not only will the steaming be live, but it will also be in 3D
Christopher Bailey has designed 3D glasses for this experience!
Excitement at this development in the streaming of fashion shows!
More exciting though for selected V.I.P guests in selected city who will be lucky enough to have the 3D Burberry experience
2D for the rest of us then - hopefully that's all we can complain about with Burberry. February 23 will tell ...

Pop Magazine

POP magazine is a ground-breaking, twice-yearly title. With top-notch visuals, Pop has contributions from celebrated artists, famous photographers, wayward fashion designers, deluded writers and a fair few celebrity types

I heart it and Spring / Summer 2010 is waiting for you on the shelves!
