Elegant Magazine invites new designers and collaborations to show and express their work. Yet again seeing my collection in print is unreal, as is the photography and styling of this shoot. I love the blue hues which compliment my collection and the doll like poses displayed by the model. They are really inspiring and pure which have a sense of calm and peacefulness.
Yes I did just say Corduroy, the once outdated, strange texture that doesn’t make any garment look good.. Until now.
I’ve seen a few people brave the cord when I’ve been out and about which has peaked my interest somewhat. Now the day has finally come as Topshop are first to catch onto the trend spanning from dresses to jeans. However this new take on cord is fresh and appealing! Hurrah!
Here are my favourites from Topshop’s new collection…
1. A-line buttoned skirt £30, a new take on suede and perfect for sunny days or thrown on with tights for the arrival of Autumn. 2. Burgundy skinny jeans £42, coloured jeans are also making their mark on the high street so this tackles both trends in one. 3. Patterned cord crop top £42, is this even cord? Yes! If your not convinced on cord then this is perfect for you. 4. Tan pinafore dress £50, I love the school dress nod in this cute dress, perfect for festivals or layering. 5. Printed 70’s mini skirt £42, again it doesn’t even look like cord, the autumnal colours are perfect for any occasion. 6. Black bomber jacket £48, I love this jacket! It’s cool and would compliment any outfit, ideal to throw on!
It’s not only the high street that’s catching on, recently Miley Cyrus was seen in Free People cord dungarees whilst she was out and about. One for the boys too, Nick Jonas was spotted wearing a cord suit during a recent shoot. Keep your eyes peeled and I’m sure in a few months you too will be sporting something cord.
Do you think cord is fashion genius or fashion faux pas?
If you thought fruity fashion was so last year then think again. This year it’s back and it’s bigger than ever. From watermelons to lemons, high street to high end, sunglasses to skirts, printed fruit is everywhere you look so grab a must have whilst it’s hot.
If your still not sure, there are plenty of low cost bargains to be found so grab a cheap and cheerful fashion find whilst they are still in stock.
After a long and anticipated wait I have finally received my copy of the magazine which features my collection. It’s great to see my work in print and be featured with other new designers. I love the feature and the images are great, many thanks to all that contributed behind the scenes.
White denim is a must have this summer. From the perfect knee length skirt with button detailing to exaggerated ripped boyfriend jeans, denim is an essential part of every girl’s wardrobe.
Initially I wasn’t a fan of the almost illuminous, pristine white denim, but worn in the correct way it completes any summer outfit. I particularly love oversized denim jackets. This new take on the everlasting Levi’s denim version is a welcomed arrival. Whether you are wishing for a casual day look with platform sandals or prefer an evening option with colourful pointed courts, white denim is the new staple piece for this summer.
Hot on the high street: Urban outfitters have some great girlfriend jeans in store right now. New Look have a mini denim skirt which is a perfect throw on piece. Zara have frayed denim in all shades of beautiful garments.
Top Tips for Denim:
Don’t buy too cheap; true denim is worth paying for (it will last a lifetime).
Look out for details; denim details add intricate finishing touches to what appears to be a standard garment.
DIY; don’t be afraid to add rips/embellishment to your garments to make a statement.
