Why fashion matters to me

Why fashion matters to me

I’ve talked about style. I’ve talked about my favourite people within the industry. I’ve even talked about the bits I don’t like. This year has seen me curate all my thoughts and feelings about the wonderful and weird world of fashion. It’s clear I have a lot of opinions, but there’s more than just what I think, it’s how important fashion clearly is to me. View Post

What needs to change in the fashion industry?

What needs to change in the fashion industry?

As much as I love fashion, and am passionate in pursuing a career in it, I think there is lots of room for improvement. I’ve written lots of blog posts highlighting these issues, as I’m a firm believer in always bettering yourself, even if it means faulting things you love. Just like how the fashion industry isn’t perfect, neither am I, but if I don’t try and improve on these things I’ll always be stuck in the same place. Fashion has lots of benefits, for one without it we’d be naked, but is it worth the negatives? View Post

Gucci Cruise – Spooky or Stunning?

Gucci Cruise – Spooky or Stunning?

For Gucci’s 2019 Cruise runway show they took over a cemetery in Provence. Studying a gothic influenced brand for my summative brief means I’m pretty much obsessed with all things that look like they belong in a scary film, and this runway collection definitely fits the bill. With¬†Alessandro Michele (creative director at Gucci since 2015) saying his main inspiration was the idea of death, it’s fair to say he was definitely going for the wow (if not weird) factor at their Cruise collection this year.

Versace Versace Versace – a tribute to the iconic brand

Versace Versace Versace – a tribute to the iconic brand

I’ve talked about a lot of different fashion houses since I started my blog, but I have a special place in my heart from Versace. Sure the Migos song is terrible (and a terrible tribute if you ask me), but the brand itself is something else. It might not look like my style, but I’m always in awe of each collection, and think Donatella has done an amazing job in carrying on her late brother Gianni’s legacy. My favourite show recently was the Spring/Summer show in 2018, which was a better tribute to the talented founder himself, 20 years following his death. View Post

The Rise of Athleisure

The Rise of Athleisure

Athleisure, for those of you that have no idea what I’m talking about, is a fashion trend where in people are wearing work out gear all day, every day. Forget wearing yoga pants just to yoga class, now people are wearing them to go shopping, to spend time with their friends, even when partying. It’s a trend popularised by the Instagram model, and one I’m fully on board with. Forget squeezing into skinny jeans and a crop top, now it’s fully acceptable for me to leave the house in an over sized hoodie and some leggings, and still have people think I’m trendy (or as trendy as I can be at least!)
