In an era where buzzwords such as 'realness' and 'authenticity' are king, this confirms how the right item of clothing can help convey a believable character even before the actor has opened his or her mouth.

As I write this I am sat by a radiator, covered in a blanket, wearing a thick jersey onesie, sheepskin-lined boots and this giant Monki scarf, and I am STILL COLD. So, it's handy I've been busying myself with finding new fashion pieces to root out this weekend.

Glamour in the Clouds?

There's a reason why fashion catwalks are called runways. And couture doesn't get more advanced than flying glamour pusses and ear-popping averse air stewards looking swaggy despite the altitude.

The Only Thing the Residents of Balcombe Hate More Than Fracking Is Anti-Fracking Demonstrators

Matthew Phillips | Posted 21.10.2013 | UK Politics

I agree emphatically with the cause of the protesters. Really I do! I simply question their methods and, 'frackly', I can't imagine anything worse than super-gluing myself to a fence. If fracking does indeed become a permanent feature of UK energy policy and production, it is likely to bore thousands of large holes into our 'green and pleasant land'.

Oh the 80s, the era that kept neon light manufacturers in business, rhinestone cameo brooches sparkling against our spiked glasses of Sodastream and Italian dance diva Spagna's spiky mane burning tiny holes in our eyes - aww, I remember it well.

Has the media become tired of all the reality show 'celebs' and the fashion designing footballer's wives? It would seem that the 15 minute fame grabbers have out stayed their welcome. Today the older woman is packing a punch!

A few years ago, we might have cited John Rocha and Matthew Williamson as the hottest tickets for London Fashion Week. The New Guard have trounced on that theory. They are more than just BFC sponsored talent, the lucky creatives that escaped the unemployment net. They are the rebirth of British fashion design. Yeah, I said it. An actual rebirth.

Usually this time of year I'm running around London Fashion Week rushing from show to show and no matter what shoes I wear I end up with my feet punishing me in some way. So this season I decided on something slightly different. I decided to stay at home and see what brands were doing to promote their new collections via the internet and digital media.

The evening was planned as a retrospective of the album that changed everything for British music. Never Mind The B******* sprang angrily into life in 1977, an original musical work that openly criticised a culturally cobwebbed United Kingdom. But the organisers do not get politeness this evening. Instead they get cat calls and verbal threats.
