A new report showed women's body confidence is now a 'critical issue' and 'body-shaming' adverts have become so bad that London's Mayor has had to ban them from the Tube - we are in a time where 'festival ready' is more dangerous to young women than ever. Because what it's really telling them, in its subterfuge way, is that they're not 'good enough' as they already are.
Politics, sometimes, may seem not entirely related to fashion, but voting in EU Referendum should be an ultimate 'must' to every British fashionista. As strong supporters of borderless talent exchange and European fashion, Fashion Bloc prepared a simple no-brainer guide helping to decide if you should vote #strongerin or #weakerout (no pressure).
Whilst your first thoughts of men wearing makeup may portray an essence of skepticism and in some cases, harbor the stereotypical view that makeup surely must be a 'gay only thing', MMUK MAN's recent success and market awareness instead quash such a social burden.
As with so many ancient buildings, this one contains the legend of a ghost - a woman who allegedly prowls the premises by night. Wood, whose client list over the past 15 years reads like a Who's Who of well-dressed gentlemen, isn't troubled by the ghost.
When something is 'on trend,' yet a designer hasn't been able to claim intellectual rights over their work, multiple retailers can jump on the band wagon (a common occurrence), which is why when you walk into a wide range of shops, you'll always find similar styles and designs. This is accepted as 'normal' in the fashion industry, but is it fair?
In a nutshell, 'greenwashing' is essentially when you pretend to be, or pretend to be doing something that you're not. More specifically, from an environmental standpoint.
Father's Day is going to be here before you know it, and it's time to start thinking of presents. Ahead of Father's Day, which is on Sunday, June 19, 2016, I have handpicked a selection of grooming goodies for the dads that deserve a treat. Honing in on grooming products and fragrances, there are plenty of items that any father would love.
Former TOWIE star Jessica takes a step in the wright direction as she launches her second footwear collection for SS16.
Jessica Wright looked incredible as she arrived to her launch in a white bespoke four by four emblazoned with her name along the show stopping vehicle.
If you're buying polyester then, potentially, the answer is yes. Its tightly woven fibres can make it difficult to clean and, in particular, to remove odours which can cling and quickly become indelible.
Men don't need Mary Portas to validate and endorse their grooming habits. In fact, all we need to do is look at movements like the Bearded Villains and the many charitable organisations like Decembeard and Movember to see how men's grooming is carrying positive messages. We really want the best for each other - I honestly believe that.
As the exhibition progresses there is more, not less colour and the styles become extraordinarily varied and the designs so inventive. There is a knicker and bra set made out of an RAF silk map for Lady Patricia Mountbatten and several example of Make-Do and Mend dresses, housecoats and even a long dress made from scarves.
In terms of the size of the lashes, you need to play around with it until you find the length that best suits blending in with your natural lashes and eye shape. I ended up using the middle section of a pair. The inner corner section was too short and the outer corner third was a bit much.
Denmark boasts some of 'the happiest people', thanks to their enviable health, education and welfare systems and has set itself the goal of having the first carbon neutral city. And last month, Copenhagen hosted the fourth edition of it's increasingly established Fashion Summit.
As a Personal Stylist, I often look to unique international designers for clients who might be a little bored with their current shopping experience - and what better way than to experience the glamour of Hollywood's LA Fashion Week!
I'm glad to read that Dent doesn't seem to be affected by what happened to her at gigs in her teenage years. But for the women who have contacted Frank Turner, Safe Gigs for Women and Girls Against since their inception who aren't okay with what happened to them, if 'millennial feminism' has given them a voice then how can anyone think this is a bad thing?
Retinoids are a firm favourite with both dermatologists and beauty editors alike. There are a large number available, all marketed for their anti-aging properties, but the truth is they are not all the same in their potency or effects. So how do you know which one to buy? Are the prescription strength ones better than the ones you can buy over the counter?
I like dressing flamboyantly and in bold colours that make me happy. I apply a buy less, buy better attitude to fashion and accessories, and I love collecting things and wearing them again and again. The two collections of mine that I am most proud of are of shoes and sunglasses.
The summit, organized by the Danish Fashion Institute on behalf of the Nordic Fashion Association, focused on 'responsible innovation', moving us to think more deeply about the true meaning of the word sustainability, which is at risk of becoming undervalued or even dismissed through over use
This is the blog post I know you've all been waiting for. And there is nothing more important to a yogi like myself than yoga leggings, or pants as the Americans like to call them. It's now entirely justifiable to wear them out to the shops, on the school run or even jazzing them up with a smart top on a night out - ok that's just me then...
