These three collections take street influences, from classic 90's hip hop style, Kawaii and the gritty London realness that is the Tube, and turn them into super cool, easy to wear, edgy fashion for men and women, that references London, New York and Tokyo style.

The fashion industry has artfully latched onto our fitness obsession. It all started in 2004 when Stella McCartney designed her first collection for Adidas. Her collection was soon after followed by a collaboration between Puma and Alexander McQueen.

Another lovely touch was the inclusion - without apology - of Isabella's more damaged items such as her scuffed Givenchy mules and the McQueen coat complete with cigarette burns. It's a lovely reminder that what Isabella loved, she wore. And wore and wore and wore. Nothing was saved for special occasions in her wardrobe.

I continue doing my part to slay the Dragons of Mediocrity by being proactive. I concentrate my energy and thoughts on what I'm passionate about and try my best to help others along the way. I create opportunities for dancers while mentoring them along their journey. I wake up each morning, I get out of bed, and chase after my dreams.

Those who dismiss the fashion world as a vapid, ivory tower for people whose mouths are made for pouting and air-kissing (rather than eating) and models with cold dead eyes of sharks and the personality of a flannel, must visit the spectacular Somerset House exhibition, celebrating the late Isabella Blow.

Mrs B commands a majestic entrance, coming up on to the dramatically lit stage of the evening talk in her name at London's Arts Club. If not for the dark dress (Lanvin, beautifully tailored) and unusual, striking jewellery, I would swear I might have mistaken her for a matriarch of a more majestic sort.

The exhibition covered fashion, industrial design, technology and architecture. One non-fashion exhibit that caught my eye was an app that replaced my and my friends' faces with much older ones. The app followed our faces creating a virtual mask and mimicking our exact facial movements.

In March 2009, Belarusian model Maryna Linchuk opened John Galliano's autumn 2009 show. She was the embodiment of the eastern peasant top to toe; from the headwear to the pointed almost primitive shoes she wore. Two and a half years on, and elements of a similar aesthetic have crept their way back onto runways worldwide, both in Autumn and Resort collections, 2012 and 2013 respectively.
