  • AFRO ACTIVISM at Afro Hair & Beauty Live 2019
    by Lester on 06/06/2019 at 10:15

    My ‘smart’phone thinks I’m black! It started when I began to research black culture, and more specifically, black women’s hair and beauty on social media. My search page on Instagram is now filled with people that don’t look like me – for the record I’m a white middle-aged woman of British/Italian descent who is now quite smug because I’ve thrown […]

  • LONDON DENIM S/S 2020 Première Vision Trends + Streetstyle Denim by TrendPX
    by Lester on 11/12/2018 at 16:31

    London’s first Première Vision Denim tradeshow has finished, and what now? Orders have been taken, fabric sampled and visitors have been updated on the latest fabric and fashion trends. One thing is clear, all of these denim businesses are now actively working towards reducing their impact on the planet – or are they? In an imagined denim utopia, all fabric […]

  • ITALIAN TAILORING A Glimpse into the World of Sartorial Masters
    by Lester on 22/10/2018 at 13:10

    The conversations between street photographers are often cut short, what might be considered rude behaviour – checking over the shoulder of the person you’re talking to and/or walking off mid-sentence – is perfectly acceptable outside any Fashion Week show. One of the questions that usually gets asked is “Where are you off to next?”, or “Are you going to___”  fill […]

  • Gianfranco Ferré UNDER ANOTHER LIGHT Jewels and Ornaments
    by Lester on 18/03/2018 at 14:24

    I thought I knew a bit about the Italian fashion giant Gianfranco Ferré, after all I used to own one of his bags but, as it turns out, that was a bit of a red herring; because it was through that bag that I made a lot of assumptions. The main one being that the designer was another in a […]

  • London Fashion Week: Ethics & Sustainability
    by Lester on 27/02/2018 at 15:14

    You could be forgiven for thinking that the fashion industry isn’t the best friend of the planet. Much of what we hear in the news highlights the mountains of waste, the colossal amounts of water used in clothing production and it seems we’re personally responsible for the tiny polyester particles that find their way into the water supply when we […]
