Trump Meets with LVMH Chief Bernard Arnault

January 10, 2017

Fashion Twitter was in a froth yesterday as news rolled in of yet another of President Elect Trump’s huge overblown statements. “We are going to have an unbelievable , perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s […]

Had it With Fakesters? So Have I.

October 24, 2015

The Daily Mash often makes me laugh for its razor-sharp accuracy and social commentary. None more so than a post earlier this year that @bombfashion reminded me of (that seems particularly pertinent at the moment) titled, ‘Fake Nice People Worse Than Authentic Bastards’.Yup, I’m with that the whole mile. Particularly as I fall more than […]

Me and The Gym. An Uneasy Affair

August 14, 2015

Now here’s the thing. What I didn’t plan for when coming back to Glasgow was the rise of ‘the gym’ as a place of worship. And I do mean worship. As every tattooed male under 30 and their fully made up, high haired, Nike spandex wearing girlfriend counterpart (also with tattoos, but delicate ones…like a […]

Shabby Chic – Gucci’s Pre-Fall 2015 campaign

April 15, 2015

New advertising campaigns always sends social media into a tizzy, but waking up to half of Twitter breathlessly claiming the exclusive on the new Gucci pre-fall ‘15 images was, initially amusing, followed swiftly by disappointment. A new campaign under new creative director Alessandro Michele presenting the house’s new direction – except it wasn’t. A reimagining […]

Christopher Bailey’s New CEO appointment as Burberry – Sense or Security?

October 15, 2013

We all awoke to a strange announcement in the fashion industry. The news that Christopher Bailey, currently chief creative officer of Burberry, will become chief executive officer when Angela Ahrendts leaves the brand in 2014 whilst also retaining his former role, a position that he has undoubtedly made his own. It’s no news that Bailey […]

When did Customer Service get so Inflexible & Loyalty so Unrewarded?

August 23, 2013

It really isn’t my intention to get into ranty mode on a Friday but its seems that BT can wind up even the calmest of souls. Tweet about BT and just see the amount of responses that you get from fellow sufferers who have tried to remain loyal but end up thwarted, dismayed and frustrated […]

So Shutting Up is the New Resistance? Tell that to the Suffragettes.

August 4, 2013

I’m breaking the #twittersilence, fundamentally because I think it’s an innately silly concept. Did the Suffragettes take a vow of silence? Or the Jarrow Hunger Marchers? Or the Anti-Apartheid movement or, indeed, those (still) fighting the case for the Gay Pride movement and homosexual equality in Russia? Every single voice raised against injustice, terror and […]

Bloggers v Brands – Who’s Using Who?

June 22, 2013

While there’s been much discussion in the social media hub re bloggers or rather, newbie bloggers (disingenuously termed by some as ‘blaggers’), solely taking to the keypad in a bid to gain free product from brands (often with unwarranted accusation, may I say), there’s little written about the process in reverse – when brands actively set […]

John Galliano dropped from teaching post at Parsons, New York

May 9, 2013

It’s a travesty. Not only for this previously celebrated genius who had the fashion world at his feet for so many years (and justifiably so) but for the students of Parsons New School of Design who have been robbed of the man’s presence, talent, creative genius and inspiration. More fool them. Blame the students and […]
