Intolerance breeds intolerance and laws that allow bigotry and racism as though they were a part and parcel of society are exactly the thing that encourages such attitudes. When we look at injustices far and wide it's so easy to express distaste but we must look closer to home and deal with the injustices and attitudes that are being imposed.

Beyond Pop Feminism

Embracing feminism requires more than labelling oneself as a feminist. The use of the word feminism becomes meaningless unless actions correspond to what the concept seeks to achieve: gender equality.

Three Reasons Why Londoners Dress Better Than Parisians

Fashion consistently reinvents itself. Fashion is about individuality, creativity and pushing the boundaries. This is why London is still the fashion capital and the Parisian street fashion of this century has become boring.

Why We All Need to Be Less 'Judgy' This Lent

I could feel it rising in me before I'd even had the chance to process what I was thinking. 'That Chanel dress Keira's wearing is so darn odd. Disturbing...', I tweeted, without so much as a second thought. There it was again, the judgyness: the cool, dismissive female-to-female criticism that slips so easily off my tongue.

"Fashion is only the attempt to realise art in living forms and social intercourse," said Coco Chanel. This season, lets embrace the trend but do it in a socially responsible way. And stop citing Rembrandt at the dinner table.

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.

It's been a good year so far for BLUE Marine Foundation, the UK-based ocean conservation charity I'm involved with. In fact, it's been a good three years since startup. And this week was no exception: I felt a big flicker of pride when I saw the fantastic partnership that BLUE has developed with Kenzo come to life on the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week on Monday.

Wow. I've arrived on the Avenue Montaigne in the heart of Paris' poshest shopping district. Joseph and Giorgio Armani stores are opposite. Where do I recognise the Hotel Plaza Athénée's red canopies from? Ahh, of course. Carrie Bradshaw came here in the last two episodes of Sex & the City.

Paris Fashion Week, British Designers and French Wines With Style

Paris Fashion Week is one of my favourite times, and whilst it takes place in the capital of France, it is very much an international event. And there are so many Brits there. It struck me that it could be fun to match some of these talented British fashion gurus, with that other French icon, and my specialist subject, French wine.

The arrival of the wedding dress at the end of a haute couture show is a moment of grace. The most anticipated look of the show, it provides a breathtakingly beautiful finale to each designer's presentation. With delicate lace detailing, lavish sequin embellishment and trains that seemed to stretch for miles.

The first place I went to after getting off the train was le Sacré-Cœur in Paris which is the most exquisite church I have ever visited! It was of course inundated with people especially what with it being Easter but I still managed to squeeze myself through the tourists to get an aerial view of Paris.

I believe that Maison Smalto, like so many long established menswear tailoring houses in Paris, London and Milan, can still occupy a place and address the tastes and needs of male consumers.

Christian Dior's day has been saved, its reputation reignited and the Parisian equilibrium restored by Raf Simons. Hoorah! Upon D-Day, the presentation of his first ready-to-wear collection for Dior, the Belgian served the first point of this season's Parisian fashion feud.

We Need to Talk About YSL...

We need to talk about Yves Saint Laurent. Excuse me, Saint Laurent Paris. No, make that Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane. Or is it simply Saint Laurent? Bugger. Anyway, when I say we have to "talk," I don't mean about the clothes. Given that I did not even bother requesting a ticket, I do not run the risk of not being invited back. Or invited in the first place. So here goes.

The enormous handbag was unveiled at the SS2013 Paris catwalk show; carried along by a six feet tall leggy stick figured creature, slash, model. She was wearing a swimming costume, which for the record, is the natural choice of attire for a giant bag resting on two hula hoops.
