I’ve Got My Eye On You

I’ve Got My Eye On You

NewGen sponsorship, the amazing, often life-changing initiative that helps to develop designers into commercial successes, was announced this week, which means it must be near the time when we're all back on that catwalk merry-go-round they call Fashion Week. No surprises to some of the list, like Louise Gray and Mary Katrantzou, but there are a few relatively new designers we're going to keep our peeps on come February.

City Of Prints

City Of Prints

Say Hello To The New Hannah

We always look forward to London. Of course we say this every season, so its beginning to sound like the proverbial broken record. Though the city packs a lot of promise for the summer 2011 season, it took until late Friday afternoon, the first day of Fashion Week, for us to get truly excited about what lies ahead this week in London.

This Is Not A Room

This Is Not A Room

This is not a room. But it is a dress. Mary Katrantzou's premise for her first stand-alone show was a multi-dimensional homage to home furnishings. If you've ever been caught with nothing to wear, spare a thought for your draperies and, like Katrantzou, transform it into a dress.

Forget Your Troubles, Come on Be Happy

Forget Your Troubles, Come on Be Happy

I always succumb to the sweet charm of Charles Anastase. Maybe it's the channelled librarian geek chic, or his unpredictability in putting a look together.
