We all love to do our bit for charity and so do designers. Paul Smith and Cath Kidston are just some of the designers working on a project to customize giant Gromit statues to raise money for Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. The project will see 70 giant Gromits fill the streets of Bristol from 1st July all through till 7th September. This is going to look awesome! We really want this to come to London! We think this is so cool for such a good cause. Everyone loves Wallace & Gromit, you must be mad not to.
We all know the iconic Jean Paul Gaultier conical corset made famous by the brave Madonna in her ‘Blonde Ambition’ tour. Well now the chance to see it is here (if in California). Madonna has decided to exhibit eight of her favorite pieces from her costume archives and personal collection in Macy’s this Thursday for a one day only pop up. This one off event exhibits the fashion we all remember and have all been inspired by at one time or another. Madonna made fashion history, what we would give to raid her wardrobe!
