    Should Fashion Wait For Kate? by Disneyrollergirl

    In just a matter of days, Catherine Middleton will be an HRH and we’ll finally know who designed her blessed dress. After a solid month of daily ‘scoops’ on the identity of the designer, we can all rest easy in the knowledge that Bruce Oldfield/Sarah Burton/Sophie Cranston/Reiss/Insert Any Old Name Here has created the dress […]

    Paris in the Fall by Disneyrollergirl

    Whoa, I’m not sure what was in the Perrier at Paris Fashion Week but banana sleeves, exaggerated shoulders and fetish-chic were only half the story. The biggest news keeping the front row’s eyes pinned to their Blackberrys was that of the latest comings and goings on fashion’s merry-go-round.

    Fall Forward by Disneyrollergirl

    For once what’s shown on the catwalks bears some relation to what we’re wearing in real life. Due to the extreme winter we’ve endured in the UK and the US, the parkas, furs and chunky knits shown on the catwalk (for next autumn-winter) are easier to digest as we trudge across town trussed up in […]

    French Polish by Disneyrollergirl

    The shock fashion news of the last month was that of Carine Roitfeld’s departure from Paris Vogue. Sacre bleu, what a blow for fashion! What would it mean for the front row? Would there be a gaping Carine-shaped hole left in the street style blogosphere? After much initial angst and brow furrowing, a sigh of […]

    Fabulosity For All Seasons by Disneyrollergirl

    So much for the New Minimalism movement. Barely a season has passed and pffftt, like a puff of smoke from Aladdin’s lamp… vanished.

    Disneyrollergirl On Fashion Weeks And The All-Year-Round Seasons

    What a month this has been for fashion. Firstly, the spring-summer shows where London represented a riot of weird and wonderful madcappery. Notable moments included Mary Katrantzou’s photo-realist prints, Michael van der Ham’s luxe patchworks and Christopher Kane’s

    Fashion Week Finale – Menswear Roundup

    While the most popular womenswear shows at London Fashion Week were still championing polished dresses and heels (Erdem, Michael van der Ham, Christopher Kane), the latest crop of menswear is strictly casual, albeit with a twist.  Although tailoring is represented by Savile Row’s finest – E.Tautz, Ozwald Boateng and Hardy Amies among them – it’s […]

    LFW – Up Close and Personal

    Re-seeing the catwalk collections in the tents is always a highlight of London Fashion Week.  Topshop has made it even easier by putting all its New Generation sponsored designers in a swanky outdoor hut overlooking the river.  Here, I got to see the likes of Holly Fulton, Mary Katrantzou and David Koma in detail.  This […]

    LFW – All About Accessories

    While fashion shows tend to focus on the clothes, the accessories are equally important and for next season they promise to be stronger than ever.  The extreme shoe trend still has plenty of mileage.  Models have been routinely tumbling off their platforms (yes, platforms are still hanging in there) as witnessed at Charles Anastase where waifs […]
