Imaginary Christmas

Christmas does feel like an imaginary kinda time, so I thought it only appropriate that the season should be marked, not just with hairy silver tinsel, twinkly lights and too much Cliff Richard, but also with an imaginary outfit. I am drooling over this one, more than ever. I’m not sure how glamorous Christmas is […]

Cool Your Jets

Some people are naturally equipped to deal with heat, others do not have this God-given facility. I am one of the latter. When it gets hot, I am perpetually melting. The only place where I become human once more is beneath a cold shower or in a lovingly air-conditioned building. When humidity strikes, and neither […]

Mesh Around

There’s something spesh about mesh. You have to admit it. Mesh clothing has a definite feel for the cringe. It reminds us that fashion doesn’t necessarily conceal. It demonstrates the essential difference between the terms opaque and transparent. And it often shows us much much more than we’ve ever wanted to see. In its most […]

Faking It

Being a faker is underrated in my opinion. I love faking (not important stuff you know, but the little things).

Edible Couture

It’s all about creating something that looks beautiful and makes you want it. Sounds like the ideal opportunity for a role reversal? Well that’s just what’s happened. Alex Mabille has created this incredibly […]

Just Junk or Fashion Phenomenon? Recycled Couture.

Couture fashion reminds me of going to an art gallery and walking around some strange exhibitions, liking them, but not knowing quite why. Recycled couture is my favourite (gazing with awe upon the versatility of an empty can of Dr. Pepper never ceases to disappoint) and Gary Harvey’s collection of recycled wonders from London Fashion […]
