As a makeup brand owner aimed at women 35 plus, I know our beauty needs change as we age, and so should our makeup in terms of ingredients, textures and shades that work better for maturing women.
We can't all be Carrie Bradshaw with walk-in-closets and endless space for shoes, so here's what to bin, donate or sell on eBay - and don't worry, I'm not going to tell you to scrap anything you haven't worn in a year because that is insane.

In the 80s and 90s, Madonna established herself as an unapologetically strong, female role model. She pushed the boundaries of sexuality and femininity to become the ultimate sex symbol and global superstar. Now, she's expected to revoke all that, because society can't handle it when women age. We like our older women invisible and devoid of sexuality.
Anybody who has been to a fashion show in front and behind the scenes knows they rarely run on time and they are chaotic! This was a one-of-a-kind show amongst its own peer group which included stills, video and location shots amongst the customers of up-and-coming curvy fashion brand; Scarlett & Jo.
Spring has arrived, gentlemen. We can now shed the layers and now wear bright colors and even lighter fabrics.Britain has a rich and diverse history of fashion. The Brands that I have chosen have fine craftsmanship, highly fashionable, and quality.
Let's stop segregating models by their measurements. Let's stop letting hip sizes dictate whether someone is model-worthy or not. Let's start finding more Maya's and Barbara's, and bring modeling back to what it's best at: discovering charismatic, unique and beautiful faces, that all women can aspire to.

What concerns me is that the verbal ripostes create a greater degree of negativity around an industry that needs to transform - consumers and producers both need to undergo a huge number of life changes.

You begin to feel afraid of trying anything different and before you know it, you're wearing the same old clobber, day in, day out. But our style - just like our lives - needs to be shaken up from time to time. So don't get bogged down by your 'uniform' and don't let your wardrobe confuse the hell out of you!
'Sustainable' is a word that I associate with our environment: waste (throw-away fashion) and recycling, water consumption and contamination, energy consumption and climate change, chemical usage and animal welfare.
Industry wide strategies aimed at improving labour laws are essential; only through freedom of association can the millions of voiceless individuals employed in this multi-billion dollar industry take a lasting stand against systemic injustices. There is an urgent need for both the industry and the public to hear this collective call to action.
Our stance on gender is that your gender is irrelevant. Your sex should not define your choices, how you are perceived by others and who you are as a person - in other words your biology and subsequent gender assumptions, should not pigeon hole you.
Sewing your own clothes allows you to take back ownership of your wardrobe. You can start making clothes that suit you, made from fabrics you choose, rather than being shaped by what retailers tell you you want... The first step to improving the ethical quality of the fashion industry is yours to take.
