Harvey Nichols Leeds SS13 fashion show

harvey nichols leeds spring summer 2013 fashion show

Last week I was invited along to the spring summer 2013 fashion show put on by Harvey Nichols Leeds. The city's grand Victoria Quarter was a fitting backdrop for some of the new season clothes from the likes of McQueen, Diane Von Furstenburg, Mary Katrantzou and Burberry. Though undercover, the show was nonetheless outside and while the ...

Wedding dress inspiration from the catwalk

Giles London Fashion Week autumn winter 2013-14

One of the first things brides-to-be do, after booking the venue, is start the hunt to find the dress. Bridalwear designers often look to the catwalk for inspiration and you see fashion trends filtering from the catwalk to the aisle. There were a few dreamy dresses and outfits - especially at Temperley - at London and New York ...

London Fashion Week autumn winter 2013

Ashish London Fashion Week autumn winter 2013-14

Yesterday I posted my 50 favourite looks from the autumn winter 2013/14 collections at last week's London Fashion Week. Because I think fashion sometimes takes itself too seriously, I like to share the shockers too - the ridiculous looks that will surely never be worn by anyone. Like toilet roll brooches and fish handbags... I'm not much ...

I know, I know, we've only just got our heads round what we're likely to be wearing this spring summer. But fashion moves fast and last week designers showcased their autumn winter 2013/14 collections at London Fashion Week. Were you keeping up with the catwalk? If not, fear not, I've picked out 50 of my favourite looks. A few ...

DIY fashion inspiration: transparent bags

Ladies, I'm afraid we may have to embark upon that most postponed of tasks: clearing out the handbag. Bags in transparent materials were all over the spring summer 2013 catwalks and they're completely incompatible with the contents of most of my bags: ancient receipts, fluff, chocolate bar wrappers... you know the things. This trend means the contents ...

Last week I blogged about some of the biggest fashion trends seen on the spring summer 2013 catwalks. As with every season, some trends deserve to take off, but others should go straight to their fashion grave. Here are the trends I will be giving a wide berth. Crop tops Apparently, the midriff is the new erogenous zone. Now ...

2013 spring and summer fashion trends

Marc Jacobs Spring summer 2013 bold stripes

Last week I shared Phoebe's take on the trends that will be big in weddings in 2013. There's a lot of common ground between wedding styling and fashion. So what are the big trends we're likely to be wearing this year? I've taken a look back at the styles seen at the SS13 fashion weeks - both on ...

Every January Phoebe Miller looks into her new year crystal ball and comes up with the wedding trends she thinks are going to big in the next 12 months. The Leeds-based wedding blogger is usually right on the money. Take a look at my round-up of her 2012 predictions and see if you agree. Phoebe thinks 2013 will be a ...

Reiss Spring Summer 2013

Reiss fashion SS13

We'll be talking a lot about trends this month - both in fashion and weddings. I'm not an advocate for blindly following trends but sometimes they can give you an idea you can interpret and make your own. I'm afraid I really struggle to muster enthusiasm for winter fashion, so as soon as the new year ...
