Lu Flux

I am currently doing a project at uni on Slow Fashion and my research has lead me to London Designer Lu Flux who uses vintage, organic and salvaged fabrics to create her collections. The aim is to against the world of fast fashion that we live in today and produce new pieces out of the old, consuming less and producing less waste. Here are a few of her truly unique and inspirational designs...

Chloe spring 11...I think so!

I was taking a strole through the spring collections on when I spotted these Chloe designs. I love the floaty, summery feel and the light chiffon and silk fabrics that have been used, creating this beautiful movement. Here are a few of my favourite outfits...

Step into Spring

With the weather seeming to get a little bit warmer I'm daring to dream of those spring summer days and saying goodbye to the cold snowy winter. And whilst we all like to wrap up warm and cosy, I am dreaming of the days when bare legs and floaty dresses are acceptable again. Take a look at this spring time outfit from ASOS I would love...  x

20th century icons

For one of my modules at uni (20th Century Fashion) I recently had to write an essay comparing two decades or eras within the 20th century. I chose to look at the differing eras following the two world wars and the fashion icons within those eras.
I particularly focused on Chanel for the 20s and Dior for the mid 40s to 50s. But also looked at other style icons.
Here are a few of the pictures I came across in my research and then used in my report...

How to look good pregnant

Ok so I now have this new slight obsession with Miroslava Duma, ex editor of Harper's Bazaar Russia and now writes freelance for a variety of publications.
She is a well known face in the fashion industry but I only really found out about her recently.
Absolutely stunning, she's cute and always looks good, even when pregnant...

Time to Ski

I spent the last week on holiday in America and during my time out there I tried my hand at some down hill skiing, and I must admit some people out on those slopes were looking pretty good! (My sister in particular was taken by a snowboarder in bright orange dungarees with black prints on them.)

So if you have plans to hit the slopes this new year, make sure you are looking your best with some of these fun and stylish suggestions found on, enjoy!
