WOW WOW WOW AGAIN!
This issue looks amazing, I haven't had a good read of it yet but I shall have a thorough look tonight and post my findings tomorrow :D
Also, (random thoughts while watching the hills) does anyone else think its rather funny how they're playing a song called "bad girl" in the background when Stephanie goes on a date with doug behind lauren's back in season 4 episode 7? Ha.

This is actually a lace skirt, but it's a weird length so I thought I'd try it as a top, and it worked! I think it looks cute with the flower in my hair.
This is a gym class heroes t-shirt i got from their gig, they have such awesome graphics, I think this looks really funky with the tights and jacket.

She's funky, she's fresh, she's KESH! Kesh is a 21 year old British Designer/DJ. She started out with designing T-shirts and she was discovered after meeting Kanye West and Lupe Fiasco and handing out samples of her T-shirts. She's recently held her first fashion show. It's impossible to describe her style, it's just so crazy! Acidic colours, Gold blinggg, nu rave, indie, funk, disco, electronic are some words that come to mind.She's a complete cheapskate - and that's why I love her! In all her interviews she's like "oh yea, this was £1." Nearly everything she wears is customized or made by herself, I saw an awesome video in which she made a dress in 30 minutes for an interview, and it was gorgeous! She just makes it all look so easy. Type "kesh 20 minute dress" into google.
She also DJs in her spare time and at the moment she's travelling all around the world for her DJ-ing. Here's an interview with her, she seems so nice and down to earth!
Wow I'm having a colour rush! I love the mix of bright colours and graphic prints. The belts were fierce, I've never seen anything like them!
Christopher Kane is probably my favourite designer, if not, one of my favourites. He never disappoints, and this season was no different, I was blown away! He always comes up with a new vision/theme for each collection and although this one isn't my favourite of his, it's still got top marks from me :) I particulary love the dress on the right, c'est magnifique!
I'm embarassed to say that I haven't heard of Charles Anastase until now, and I'm so ashamed of it because this collection was incredible! I loved the translucent skirts teamed with floaty tops and leather jackets. I'm definitely gonna keep my eye on him ;)
This collection was so cute, so playful and funky. I loved the lizard thing she had going on and the tights were really original.
This collection seems somewhat similar to Charles Anastases'. Both used plenty of translucent fabrics, but Roksanda was more elegent evening type wear. I just love the layering of all the gorgeous fabrics, I found this collection very romantic yet there were aspects of gothicism.
I shall leave you to gawp in envy at some pictures.

It's official - I am in love with Luella Bartley. Her spring 2009 collection was just adorable! Ladylike and funky at the same time. She's packed so many of my favourite things into one collection - ruffles, beeds, pinstripes, smart jackets, bows and floral prints. I've always loved purple and orange together and it's about time that a designer based a collection on those colours.
Let's start with the skirts: she had some very nice sculpted skirts but I just love the tiered frilled ones. I loved the candy pinstriped trousers, I've noticed a trend emerging of patterned trousers teamed with contrasting patterned tops, House of Holland used this too with floral print trousers and polka dot tops. Other trends included uneven tiered ruffled dresses, heaps of beads, netted hats and little tweed jackets.
I loved how she combined ladylike elements with kitsch and retro accessories like giant bright bows as head accessories and the cute purple and orange shoes with a giant heart on the toe.
I think this collection is very ready-to-wear literally, there are many items that I would actually wear everyday, my birthday's coming up in a month...you never know! hehe.
