Marques Almeida SS16 LFW Show Report

  Although it started out in all white and ended in the same manner, Marques’ Almeida’s SS16 show was anything but a wash out. Their signature ruffled denim pieces were given new life in sheer magenta chiffon, and hot scarlet sateen. A glossy, oversized biker in tar thrown over a strewn, billowing gown harks back...

Ashish LFW SS16 Show Report

      When rounding the free spirited show at Ashish, we saw a consummate marriage of Sparkles, skateboards and a touch of sharp sass that the Harlem vogue scene would be proud of. The show glided on with skater girls playfully swaying down the runway in their relaxed hems, sequinned slouchy tracksuits and voluminous...

Claire Barrow LFW SS16 Presentation Report

You Drove Me Crazy Like Britney Spears in ’06

The second instalment of, ‘My Therapist Gave Me An Assignment- Write About Your Ex’  I kid you not, I was (basically) five hair cuts away from shaving my hair off and attacking an uber van after replaying my breakup over and over in my head. Getting dumped in Union Square was both partially embarrassing and partially...

Why Do I Use The Shell In My Work?

  Seeing through the eyes of the Shell- Glacier Girl’s second column. The extreme grossness of the logo is used as a symbol of evil and destruction rather than a direct portrayal. I am trying to show that effectively we are all wearing shell and reiterating the fact that we are blind to this. I...
