This series was a complete dream as I got to dive head first into the most exquisite, diverse and compelling wardrobe you've set eyes on. Interviewing designers, collectors, bloggers, fanatics and shoppers, as well as trying on some of the most divine pieces out there. I delved, I learned and I may have done a bit of shopping along the way. I mean... what did you expect? I hope you enjoy this series as much as i did making it.
The models that monopolise magazines and billboards are no longer remotely representative of the women that we see in everyday life, resulting in an influx of body-dissatisfaction, eating disorders and appearance preoccupation among young women.
Thoughts about how this fashion presentation may look in the future woke me up this morning - way too early - after writing this article last night. It occurs to me that there will be other relationships to consider if art imitates life.
Here are my top five tips for keeping hair protected and looking its best this winter. These come in handy for women, men and kids with all types of textured hair; kinky, coily, curly and wavy.
Having recently displayed a sign in their flagship store that read: "I'm a psychotic mess but at least my eyebrows look good" they've been called out by just about everyone. Not just by the media, but by members of the public and mental health charities too. Ouch.
Although it is yet unclear what these current industry players will do to make the changes necessary, one thing is certain, the next generation of fashion professionals understand the urgency for change and we, as educators, must prime them to act.
The beauty industry, in the UK alone, is worth around 17 billion pounds and from looking at these figures, I can see why brands are not putting more emphasis on the importance of monitoring the products we use.
A third of us would consider missing a party this Christmas - simply because of a lack of confidence when we're on our period. A huge 3 in 4 women expect their sanitary protection to fail them at some point while they are on their period, and this is reflected in the kind of underwear ladies turn to during their time of the month.
I know Paris is getting older - she is 35 now...so not far off being a #Mags herself! But this doesn't mean she has to sell her stuff through Lidl surely? She seems to do very well for herself financially, I can't imagine she needs the cash?!
Theresa May has either begun a discussion which will liberate professional women who feel they can't talk openly about clothes and fashion or she has done herself a disservice. I suspect she's done a bit of both but more of the latter.
We want to extend some of Christophe André's tips to increasing self-esteem to women in the UK since recent research from the Dove Global Beauty and Confidence Report (2016) revealed only 20% of UK women have high body-esteem.
If you're heading to a work party or formal occasion, a simple red or silver dress paired with black heels is always a winner. If you've got something more casual planned, you can't go wrong with a chunky, Christmas-coloured jumper to keep you cosy with a pair of skinny jeans and boots.

Wanting to dig a little deeper into the sport and technical aspects of the clothing, I asked about the differences between the commercially available jerseys and the ones the baseball players wear.
While more and more general consumers are starting to take the implications of carbon emissions seriously, the fashion industry is lagging behind. Green and fair trade designers utilising domestic talent and sustainable technology may be gaining traction among small niches; however, the majority of large scale fashion houses still source cheap labour from overseas and use unethical manufacturing processes.
While this kind of naked might disappoint those who Google "sexiest women in the world" or the "sexiest poker players", here are the top three takeaways from the 2017 Pirelli calendar to say f**k you to perfection.
We seem to be moving to an age that values access over ownership. In this shift towards experiences rather than possessions, a "sharing economy" spurned by the technology sector, is growing. Millennials increasingly stream music, films and TV, rather than buying physical copies. We download books and audiobooks to our phones. We rent out our homes, spare bedrooms, and take rides in other regular people's cars.
Transitioning to Slow Fashion from Fast Fashion is a different experience depending on your current shopping habits. For many of us, it can come as a rather shocking moment- a moment where we realise that our relationship with our clothes has been diminished to a two month magic line where the pieces transform from chic to let's be frank, not so chic.
