Regardless of how stylish you are, or how stylish you wish to be, the undeniable need to wear clothing is apparent. We are in the era where nudity and nature's uniform is no longer acceptable - so we are forced to cover what our mother's gave us with at least one garment or another.

The sun has arrived, and a new light is cast into our homes, calling for a fresh look at our interiors. Similar to fashion, it's unlikely that many of us can get a whole new wardrobe each season, so it is all about ways of updating our spaces with small accessories - and perhaps a few big splurges along the way!

Ingrid Chua

Belgian- born designer Jonathan Riss has always had a proclivity for beautiful design and intricate detail. At 18, he had wanted to become an architect and contemplated on a move to New York. Ever the artistic nomad though, he disliked the thought of being geographically static while going through formal education. And so he travelled- to learn.

The Advertures of Me and My Handbag

I love a new handbag. It can be brand new or just new to me, in fact I rather love an old bag too. Nothing excites my senses more than the whiff of leather, soft as a baby's bum and equally as biteable....

Yes, it's time to ditch the tracky bottoms, slouchy leggings and ironic hoodies in favour of something sharper and more grown up. AW13 looks pretty exciting in terms of trends, so here's how to work them on a budget for the office.

Day to Night Wear, or How I Shall Go to the Ball

Lucy Karsten | Posted 19.10.2013 | UK Style

I am still, 15 years later, looking for the perfect day to night wear; a little piece that tells everyone I am just at ease in the boardroom as at the ball. (The fact that I frequent neither of these places does not worry me at all).

My Shopping Obsession

I browse for clothes online every day and go into town to look for new items twice a week. I have at least sixty dresses. I'm also a student. If there's a rehab for clothes addicts, I'm definitely checking in.

Luxury fashion cannot just be equated to 'carrying a designer handbag on your arm'; it's the lifestyle we experience. In the words of Coco Chanel, 'Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, with the way we live.'

Confessions Of My Spare Room

Paula Fry

I want you to know that I don't wear vintage every day. No sir! I am actually a little bit of a designer whore on the side... Give me access to Net-a-Porter, a juicy Malbec (see my bio) and a flexible friend (Monsieur's Visa or Amex, I'm not fussy) and you can keep me quiet for hours.

Call Me Second Hand Rose....

I was first bitten by the vintage bug in 1983, borrowing my grandma's 60s kitten heeled sling backs - they had toes so pointed you could have impaled anyone you kicked. I carefully borrowed a few of grannie's pieces - mostly shoes, jewellery and handbags to add to my puff ball skirts, explosive hair and wrist to elbow silver slave bangles.

Many of us are guilty of making rash purchases. However, items bought in haste are often forgotten and fall to the back of the wardrobe - only to be found months later, tags still in place.

When it's scorching outside, a part of me knows there's a group of very overheated design graduates setting up for yet another year of the New Designers exhibition. Whether it's purely down to the weather or just the 3,500 excited students in one building, the heat is cooled by the refreshing perspective on design that awaits inside.
