M.I.A Versus Versace

These 3D photos of M.I.A’s new collection for Versace are amazing.  The collection is controversially inspired by Versace counterfeits. Check out the rest of the photos by Jamie Martinez here: M.I.A Versus Versace

“Counterfeits are something I’ve always had and collected, and I would also collect a lot of vintage Versace from the Nineties,” she said. “Sometimes I like the copies better and sometimes I like the original. I felt that there needed to be a bridge between both, or definitely a mix-up, so it’s really a collaboration between Versace and the bootlegs.” – M.I.A interviewed for Vogue

These were shown to me a few days ago by my bezzer pal Katie B.  Check out her blog! http://whatktwore.blogspot.co.uk/

Model Diversity at London Fashion week 2013

In uni at the minute we’re doing a project on Diversity in the fashion industry and I feel that it’s opening my eyes to new ideas of what fashion in the future could be.  In the past 20 years we’ve seen the rise of the supermodel; ‘heroine chic’ and size zero, and more recently the use of plus size models on the catwalk.

nasir mazhar by lea colomboAt London Fashion Week this September Nasir Mazhar’s collection really caught my eye, not only for the designs/styling but the very diverse range of models.  The catwalks are still predominantly Caucasian, tall, skinny girls so I found Mazhar’s model line up really refreshing.

The models look happy and confident, which I think should be promoted more in the industry: regardless of shape/race/age/class.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label AW13: Make Up

Vivienne Westwood’s models make up made them look like an abstract portrait of themselves.  Or possibly a clown… However, although I wouldn’t wear this look out on a Friday night I do really like the idea of being more playful and experimental with makeup.
