My Summer Refresh Challenge with Collect Plus

How much unloved stuff have you got knocking around your home? How many pairs of barely worn shoes, how many dresses still with tags on and how many necklaces have never seen the light of day? I for one have…

Reiss Launches NEW Fragrances: Exclusive to Selfridges

When it comes to fashion brands launching fragrances, they’re normally bland and boring – completely failing to capture the essence of the brand or to target the women that actually shop there. Reiss have bucked the trend with the launch…

London Fashion Week: Going Backstage at Burberry

The highlight of London Fashion Week for me is always the Burberry show. Not only does it draw in the crowds (online and in person,) but Christopher Bailey pushes the boundaries of fashion whilst still making every item wearable. This…

London Fashion Week: Reporting Backstage at Alessia Prekop

The Alessia Prekop S/S 2014 collection provided an array of elegant and feminine outfits in fairly muted tones. The focus was very much on puffy statement sleeves, contrasting waist-hip ratios, strong angles and a framing of black. Ruffles and frills…

London Fashion Week: Backstage at Kiev Fashion Days

The atmosphere backstage was palpable; all the Ukranian designers were waiting to showcase their efforts to a judging, yet receptive, audience. Models were buzzing around the small space with only three minutes spare to apply their makeup. The wonderful Lan…

London Fashion Week: Reporting Backstage at Eugene Lin

Taking a dramatic turn from his previous A/W line (gone are the digital prints and military styling,) A/W 2014 heralds in a tailored and impeccably immaculate line. Eugene Lin has delivered on a flattering collection of dresses, trousers and jackets…

London Fashion Week: Reporting Backstage at Lug Von Siga

This season it’s all about the strong woman; feminism is well and truly back! (If it ever went away.) The Body Shop created androgynous inspired make up at Lug Von Siga: the eyebrows were pushed up and filled in to…

London Fashion Week: Reporting Backstage at Pinghe

Black and white have eternally served as a timeless classic in fashion. The power, opulence and grace of the monochrome trend was exhibited perfectly by Chinese designer Pinghe in her SS14 collection. Pinghe’s use of rounded elaborate shoulders, straight cut…
