Recently being introduced to Aigner's 'Florence' tote, my heart skipped a beat. That doesn't happen too often - my bar is a high one. But she simply sung to me, trilling her seduction until it was outside my powers to resist a cheeky hold. Slipping her over my arm, our chemistry was instant and permanent

Vivienne Westwood is equally as passionate about sustainability as we are. Many items of the new uniform will be produced using recycled materials - in particular working with recycled polyester yarn made from used plastic bottles.

Step aside LBD there's a new dress on the block. Yes ladies, the MWD (Minimum Wage Dress) is now on sale and costs a mere £3.68 -- the typical hou...

These cats are hardcore stylists, but their roots are, like all the best tailors, in Savile Row. The difference is that they've all become rock stars by moving their trade to Soho. And it's right that Soho is the place where they have made their mark, because Soho is the world that encourages 'preservation of the individual'.

Burberry managed to own yet another fashion week, but did a collection as a standalone without the hype stand up for itself? Probably not.

Graduate Fashion Week is one of my favorite events of the year and this year's event was no different. Graduate Fashion Week continues to be the place for students to show their creativity and for fashion brands and retailers to identify their future design talent.

Summer's here (minus frequent Sunshine) which means music festival season. But what to wear? Whether its been Issy Miyake at Isle Of Wight or Vera Wang at Wireless, T-shirts (teamed with the ever popular denim shorts), have been the basic but popular attire to rock out in, regardless of the weather.

Beyoncé Photoshopped Cavalli Pics Prompts Outrage

The Huffington Post UK | Posted 12.06.2013 | UK Lifestyle

Beyoncé is famous for keeping tight control over photos of herself, so we're wondering whether the singer has clapped eyes on a super-stretched image...

Horsey Fashion (For People, Not Those Onesies for Horses)

Everyone seems to be off to the races at the moment. Horse racing is one Great British pastime I've never indulged in, although I do love horses and riding, and spent a large part of my early years hanging around stables, hacking, grooming and mucking out - happy days.

2013 Summer Style for the Office and Interview Room

Harriet Williamson | Posted 10.08.2013 | UK Style
Harriet Williamson

It's so much easier to do office wear when it's cold outside. Rubbish weather gives you an excuse to cover up, skirts over the knee, legs hidden in opaque tights, and cardigans under blazer jackets. But I want to look summery and stylish and still be considered as a serious candidate, without overspending.

The Shoe That Fits, At a Pinch

This is the rule of thumb: you can leave the house in your pyjamas if your footwear is good enough. It's not something that should be recommended, but it's entirely possible if your choice of shoe is of a certain quality. Admittedly, the shoes in question will set you back several hundred pounds, but they will last and, more importantly, turn heads.

With festival season upon us, my FOMO (fear of missing out) goes into high gear. But as my FOMO rises, so do my festival fashion fears - those hideous don'ts you see men brazenly committing over the course of any weekend. Here are my worst offenders.

Elizabeth Taylor's wedding dress was not the only famous gown designed by Helen Rose. She was the designer behind most of Old Hollywood's most iconic fashion moments on and off the silver screen.

The Evolution of Headphones and Fashion

Fashion and design have always been interwoven in the playing of both live and recorded music. All the way from the prehistoric age of drumsticks to today's fashion headphone.The level of both fashion and fidelity associated in music over time has wavered much like a stock chart or a sound wave.

BAFTA: A Mere Mortal on the Red Carpet

Sitting in the launderette reading a copy of last week's TV Guide, I contemplated my upcoming BAFTA attendance. More specifically, I'd just worked out that by the time I'd stuck my smalls in the dryer and lugged them all the way home down Balham High Road I would have just under one hour to prepare.

Parlez-Vous Fashion: In Which Navy Trumps Black

Navy is the new black. Sorry to all those so long, so black soul sisters, but I'm switching it up. I am in favour of the tender shade, the chic, elegant colour that Jil Sander may as well be ambassador for.

Company Magazine's Faux Pas

Harriet Williamson

As a devoted Company reader, it was with a mixture of disappointment and disgust that I read 'This Is Skinny Club', an anonymous opinion piece in their June issue. 'Anon' describes how she lies to close friends about what she has eaten to avoid their concern, forces herself to exercise even when watching TV, and spends 90% of her life denying herself food.

Weekend Shopping: Ancient Greek Sandals

Sarah McGiven | Posted 24.07.2013 | UK Style
Sarah McGiven

Being predominantly a trainer-wearer, I have super soft, easily irritated, coddled feet, so sandal shopping is a nightmare. I despise anything that goes between my toes so thongs and toe posts are a total no-go. Trying to find sandals without them is a hard slog, I'm generally a pretty awkward customer when it comes to summer footwear.

Cannes, The Land of Glamour

Cannes film festival is in full swing and with the obvious focus on new film releases, the second favourite topic of conversation is inevitably fashion. In the most beautiful backdrop that really does feel like it has been taken directly out of an Audrey Hepburn film.

Magic Makers: Emma Cook

I'm talking about another British designer this week. Derbyshire born Emma Cook is in the hot seat, her print-plentiful collections oozing British brilliance with a sense of humour only to be expected from our fair land.

Lip Balm Love

Sarah McGiven

Ever since the The Body Shop started the classroom craze for little potted lip balms, I've been hopelessly hooked. Thanks to those tiny, apothecary-style glass jars full of unctuous, sweet smelling goo - Morello Cherry for a cheery tint, Tutti Frutti for a moisturising glaze - I haven't been able to resist a lip balm.

You don't have to spend a bomb to look beautiful on the beach, even if you are jetting off to the white isle, where I suspect everyone will be enviably well-dressed and have great hair even in the heat!

Whilst many could claim that Eurovision has become dated and over politicised, very few could argue that it produces some of the most dramatic, outlandish and sometimes downright bizarre outfit choices.
