25 years of British fashion

30 Nov
To celebrate 25 years of the British Fashion Council the lovely people over there have decided to
introduce a one-offaward to recognise an individual who embodies the spirit of London andis an international ambassador for the capital.
I’m a wee bit confused about some of the nominees- Sienna Miller?? Please! Manolo Blahnik- yes hes marvelous and yes he may have started his shoe empire in the UK but he was born in the Canary Islands, duno if he really counts, what do you think? Alexa Chung, come on! She’s been around for like a minute! I gave Ms. Westwood my vote- whenever I think of an iconic British designer shes the first one who comes to my mind, she basically comanded the whole punk movement and has managed to sustain a long running career in the fashion world as well as actually having a soul and giving a feek about whats going on in the world- BUT who you gona vote for??
Go here to cast your vote.

PPQ SS 2010 Collection

30 Nov

WOW!!! These garms are A LOT, and I think I could probably rock all of them!


“Known for mixing influences from the art, music and fashion worlds into their influential collections, PPQs Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker commented on their involvement in the project: Red Bull Fashion Factory is one of the most exciting events to come out of London since the start of London Fashion Week 25 years ago. Were really excited to be onboard as the event has a really similar feel to PPQ; a creative melting pot of inspirational minds. PPQ will also launch their collaboration with Adidas Originals, utilising images by Rankin, in the Hub.”


For PPQ, colour is the troop of black models dressed like Riviera glamazons who, through vibrant and ethnic patterned fabrics, come with a touch of Africa. The casting is a timely response to photographer Nick Knight’s comment that fashion is ‘ageist, sizeist and racist’. – Verity Williams
