The 30 Year Sweatshirt is my cry to end fast fashion, which is unfair on customers who end up paying more for their wardrobe staples in the long run, genuine designers for whom making clothing is a labour of love and the environment.

I was 15 when I was scouted to "model" for an American fashion brand (I'll give you a hint, it's the one with the topless models that reeks of overpriced aftershave). A size six and weighing in at just over 50kgs, I also had early-stage bulimia.
Choosing just the right electric shaver for you or as a gift for someone can be difficult. With the huge range of makes, models and price points to choose from it can quickly become an overwhelming task. So, I have tried and tested the following products...
When people ask me what I do, I am sometimes loathed to admit that I work in fashion. It is not the glamorous industry it sells itself as but rather a vast and reckless monster, bulldozing its way through the seasons.

As such, we all have a part to play in ensuring it becomes a fairer, cleaner industry.
I talk with people who both buy and sell used clothes a lot and often discuss the role of preloved clothing in conscious and ethical consumerism. Quite often people tell me that they feel used clothes are ethical & sustainable by their nature. Here is why I think this is both true and false.

I know, I probably deserve it, anyone who willingly buys something so ridiculous probably does. But in truth it was purchased for my own entertainment, and also because I smash my iPhone as frequently as plates at a Greek wedding. Anyway, here are the 17 things people need to stop telling me about my phone case.
On Wednesday 11 November 2015, we brought together more than thirty fashion designers, leading journalists and CEOs of major brands, retailers and manufacturers at the UK Houses of Parliament to discuss how sustainability can be taken to scale in the fashion and textiles industry and how the new Mysource.io platform will make that possible.

Have you ever wondered where that leather belt or bag came from? Eight-year-old Rebecca did, and when her mother couldn't tell her for sure, she made a point of finding out. That's the premise of "Labels", a new PETA video created by Catsnake Studios.
So the weather is getting cooler and there's a bite in the air most mornings and evening. For me, this means I have the urge to get my fall sweaters out of the cupboard and luxuriate in their warmth while still wanting to look good and keep my style.

The wedding planning has begun. We have booked a venue and I have asked four wonderful women to be my bridesmaids now the scary bit... bridesmaid dress buying!
Don't get me wrong; I also enjoy fashion and the high of a well-timed buy but at the expense of my dignity and your safety? No, just no. How no one received a coat hanger to the eye, a stomp on the neck or choked on a Balmain bead dislodged from its host jacket is mind blowing.
