I don't care about normcore, metrosexuality, spornosexuality, or even lumbersexuality (yes, now even the bearded, flannel shirt-clad hipster that has his own label). The last label to be put past me was 'dad-core' (suppose that's just normcore taken to a whole new level, right?).
It's essentially an odd word of mouth scenario. If your friend were to tell you of a really great skincare product, you'd be more than likely to look into it than if a complete stranger walked up to you and told you. That's what we get with celebrities and models.
Almost as soon as the clock struck midnight on my 40th birthday, I became invisible to the general public. I'm not saying I used to attract lots of attention, but I really think I could walk the streets naked in broad daylight without causing a stir.
Fashion comes around full circle. Decade old styles return to our wardrobe years, maybe even decades later. In fact many fashion designers simply alter what has already been cut and sewn.
I know 1-2 per cent of the population in the UK is meant to be redheaded, but it feels like less than that in London. In any gathering of people - in a crowded shop, on a train station concourse - when I stop and look around, there is very rarely anyone else with such a noticeable hair colour.
"I'm often asked about the Parisienne. What does she look like? How does she dress? [...] Then I bump into Ines de la Fressange and it's all there: the silhouette as slim as the stroke of René Gruau's pen, the sober style that exudes innate elegance, the deep brown gold-flecked eyes."
Todd Lynn has been called Rock and Roll's best kept secret. He has designed clothes for U2, The Rolling Stones, Marilyn Manson, and Courtney Love. He also recently designed all the costumes for Beyonce and Jay-Z's Run The World Tour.
The plus points for ex-girlfriend look for the young male hipsters is that it's tighter, obvs - at the ankle (you can't even slip a finger in underneath), the calf is spray on, and don't even mention the thighs - please note cyclists and rugby forwards need not apply.
Unpaid internships have brought forth a plethora of heated debates over the past few years- cries of 'it's unfair' 'it's slave labour' have been at the forefront of discussion both within the media and within personal discussion...
It's been a while since my last blog post and a lot has changed over the last few months. My previous posts were all about being a graduate and how I was coping with the shock of the real world. Well, I'm still coping with the shock of the real world but as it's 2015 and indeed a good six months since I graduated, I think I must officially call myself a grown up...
We have good relationships with several agencies in London, and there is often a feeling that the industry is big enough to sustain us all. But, occasionally, I meet people who seem to go out of their way to destroy our small agency.
Each year, I watch the glamour walkers in their DuBarry boots, Moncler jackets and oversized shades and then rush home feeling totally inspired to see what bargains I can pick up online in time for my next walk. Here are my "must have" picks to look super stylish for the Great Outdoors.
An individual could be curved or straight all over, or could be a combination of both. The bottom line is that if we reflect our facial and bodylines in our clothing lines, we will look more congruent and comfortable.
Take a peek inside your wardrobe. Do you have any leather gloves or belts? Leather handbags or wallets? Unless you are a long-time vegan, you probably have something made of leather. If so, then now may be the time to bury that dead skin. As a new investigation has revealed, those leather accessories might have been made from man's best friend.
Shoppers these days are as likely to get blisters on their thumbs from swiping a screen or clicking a mouse as they are to get them on their heels from traipsing around crowded streets.
I'm a firm believer that being positive is always a bigger win, personally and professionally, than being negative.
