Around the World in six days...

The things that stood out for me this week in the World of Fashion...

1. Fashion shows are always so inspiring, but when you put graduate into the mix the clothes are raw and just amazing. It is one of the week's for graduate fashion shows and here are a few of my favourites.

Anna Lee, De Montford University

Kitty Keay, Colchester School of Art

Phoebe Thirwall, Nottingham Trent University

Isabel Czernin Fishlock, Central St. Martins

Phillip Patterson, Central St. Martins

Eloise Jephson, Central St. Martins

I really love all of these!

2. The Red Carpet was full of black this week, so I applaud SJP in Vivienne Westwood at the Japanese premiere of Sex and The City 2, Zoe Saldana in MaxMara and Rachel Bilson in Peter Som. They are troopers!

3. Vivienne Westwood not only designs fantastic clothes, but now she has designed tablecloths. At £1,ooo a pop, they are expensive, but all the money goes to eco Charity Cool Earth. I would love one of these looking up at me, when I eat my branflakes in the morning!

4. The June 2010 lookbook for Zara epitomizes how I like to dress in the summer...casual, chic and a little bit edgy. I was just a little excited when I saw it.

The pictures from the graduate fashion week are amazing! I can't decide which I like the best.
It's between:
-Phoebe Thirwall from Nottingham Trent University, I love the combination of colours and the contrast bewteen the fabrics.
-Vilvin Sabu, London College of Fashion, particularly the image on the right. The design is so developed, it's something you could imagine Prada doing.
-Eloise Jephson, Central St. Martins, just the shape of it is amazing.

Apologies for such a long comment, I just got rather excited by these images and will definately be watching out for these names in the future.
