Style Addict News & Views
Style Addicts Choice â€“ Accompanying Graduate Fashion Week was a rather brilliant little magazine with â€˜The World Revolves Around Me,â€™ emblazoned across the cover. Thereâ€™s a photo shoot featuring a variety of student pieces, an interview with Christopher Bailey, quotes on British graduates from the fashion players of today, along with insights into what last years graduates are up to now. Well done Topshop for a fantastic little magazine and a successful event!
Spotted â€“ Who Was Thereâ€¦Hilary Alexander, Jimmy Choo, Ashley Isham, Colin McDowell, Laura Bailey, Tamara Beckwith, Jasmine Guinness, Christopher Bailey, Zandra Rhodes, Scott Henshall, Jens Laugesen, Hazel Robinson & Pablo Flack and Mr Philip Green flanked by two bodyguards were some of the faces on show. Not forgetting to mention our very own David Jones and a man who can talk his way through anything – Amar from Chic-n-Unique.
Everybodyâ€™s Talking Aboutâ€¦London College of Fashion being on a par with Central Saint Martins after bagging Topshop Collection of the Year and Topshop Menswear Awardsâ€¦again.
Show of the Week â€“ Getting plenty of positive nods from the audience was Layla Zaaâ€™s (Ravensbourne) womenswear collection. Taking us on an exotic trip she mixed up caftans, full skirts and Cossack style boots with acres of femininity, sequins and shine.
Static Shows â€“ Colleges are now holding static exhibitions of their graduate collections through-out June. Check with the colleges for details.
