Match made in heaven…
From the death of a designers career to the death of a designer. Today’s posts seem to be a bit depressing and about an end of an era. Well we may as well keep with the theme but let’s cheer it up a bit. An exhibition dedicated to the life and career of Amy Winehouse is due to make its début in July to celebrate what would have been the singers 30th birthday. The Jewish museum in Camden could not be a better fitting for the particular exhibition and we wish it all the best of luck. The exhibition will run from the 3rd July to 15th September and we recommend you all check it out. We miss you Amy and your rockabilly style <3
So… You’re probably sick of hearing us post about it but here it is again. You’re Galliano update. As you may have previously seen we have been keeping you up to date on the ongoing events of John Galliano’s Workshop at Parsons. We may be bringing you this news a bit late but we thought you would like to know that the workshop has now been cancelled. IF you have been keeping up with us you will know that last month Galliano was confirmed to teach a master class at the New York university Parsons which later followed a position to prevent the designer teaching. Well… The class has now been cancelled. I think this teaches us all a lesson. Words are never forgotten. Especially when you’re a high profile designer, and with those remarks. We wonder what will be next for Galliano, Politics maybe? What do you think, does he deserve a second chance?
We all love a Jimmy Choo you can’t deny it. It has now been reviled that actress Nicole Kidman will be staring in the brands A/W13 -14 campaign. The photographer Mikael Jansson shot the advert which will be revealed in August. The brand has always used younger, more current models which surprised us when they announcement that Jimmy Choo would be using Nicole a 45 year old actress. Is the brand aiming for an older market? Maybe so. Perhaps this is the new direction for Jimmy Choo. Is it losing its credibility. Stay tuned and see.
We love our pop up shops and we love independent designers so the arrival of a new shopping experience in London has made us very excited indeed!
Dalston Department Store will be showcasing the latest in British design talent in the heart of East London, offering a fantastic opportunity to buy anything from fashion to accessories and homeware direct from the designers!
It’s on from 16 to 19 May, Star House, 2 Richmond Road, E8 3HY
Admittedly, we should have posted this a little while ago, but we’re doing it now nonetheless. Never one to shy away from the shock factor, this time round David Bowie has Gary Oldman as a priest and Marion Cotillard as a prostitute suffering from stigmata…why not…
It has been announced that Barbie (yes THE Barbie) will soon be getting a new pad in London! SHOWstudio and Roksanda Illincic – who previously dressed Barbie for her 50th Anniversary (pictured) – will be working together to create her new Dreamhouse. Illincic, who trained as an architect, will be taking inspiration from London to give Barbie a truly modern and contemporary home!
Now that’s something we are excited about!
