The difficulties young people face finding jobs after graduating is phenomenal with nearly 40% of students struggling for six months to find employment. It is important that we do all we can to nurture and celebrate their skills.

The golden era of fashion blogging IS over. And only some of us will really know what that means. Back when blogging was in its earliest conception in 2002, the first waves of fashion bloggers (myself included) really only established a following or got invited to events from around 2007. It became more serious from then on, until its major decline.

I realise this list is purely subjective (although I am right about the choices here) and that you will all have different opinions (although mine is the definitive one) and so anyway, before we get to the list, which is in no particular order (even I'm not that pedantic!) we need a few ground rules for inclusion.

Your body shape is such that the latest hip-hugging pants don't suit your frame. Or, the newest shorter length jackets don't flatter your body shape. Perhaps this season's colours don't complement your skin tone, or current wardrobe.

The pieces on show are also not exciting. There's a couple that catch the eye at the start of the exhibition, such as Aztec-print beachwear from Pucci's first collection and some very elegant evening dresses in lace and ruffles from early pacesetters such as Simonetta and the Fontana Sisters, but it all peters out very quickly after the promising start.
