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. Looking on the bright side, seeing the glass half full, trusting that every cloud has a silver lining - they may well feel like clichés but they fundamentally lie at the heart of the way I choose to live.
When our course leader presented this year's FAD brief to us, I didn't hesitate to enter as I know what a great opportunity it can be for fashion students to show their work - as finalists, we get to showcase our mini collections at London Fashion Week in February. That's also when I'll find out if I've won!
After upsetting Binky, I was ostracised from the girl group and felt like I had no one to turn to other than Alex and Jamie for advice. It wasn't a malicious action. It wasn't a back-stabbing or two-faced decision. When Alex and Binky were together I was disgusted at the way he behaved.
LIZZY is a street wear brand that carries the mantra, aspire to inspire, a fundamental part of its design and represents its place of conception, Lon...
Well last night got heated! Not one, not two, but three people crying (and I'm not a pretty crier). So why did I stay in Sam's bed that night? I didn't think it was a problem as I thought Sam and I were good enough friends and I didn't know about Tiff. In hindsight, it wasn't the best idea. Time machine anyone?
Being a 21st Century feminist can come with many contradictions. I'm a feminist, but I love Gossip Girl, the main storyline of which is an essentially abusive relationship (Chuck and Blair). I'm a feminist, but I listen to Childish Gambino. I'm a feminist, but if I choose to get married, I want my father to walk me down the aisle.
The fur trade is one of the most violent and bloody industries on the planet, and the duplicitous 'Origin Assured' labelling programme is nothing more than a misleading marketing tactic to mask the true atrocities of the industry.
I'll start with a disclaimer: I love makeup. I love it, but I can't justify buying a product that isn't essential to my life, that has been developed by companies responsible for the suffering and death of animals, regardless of how good the discount is or whether Kate Moss appears in the advert.
Christmas is without a doubt my favourite time of year. I love the Christmas lights and the spectacular window displays. Let's face it; it is the one time a year when we have an excuse to be a kid again!
