…Cinderella shall go to the ball.

Posted in Uncategorized by Gregory on February 28, 2015


To celebrate the release of Cinderella, Disney has collaborated with several designers to create the ultimate glass slipper.

“Cinderella’s glass slipper has become a magical symbol of transformation,” said Jonathan Symington from Disney. Jimmy Choo’s designs are not only Cinderella’s dream transformation; but ours too!Jimmy Choo - Cinderella shoes 2

What do you think? We have our fingers crossed that our fairy godmother can conjure up a pair of these!

Francesca Castagnacci

Posted in Italian Fashion Designers by Gregory on May 5, 2011

“Style and Fashion designer” is what she introduces herself as. For the 60’s beat was coming to an end the fibre optic lamps were set to travel into the modern room into the 1970’s when bedrooms were adorned with the posters of Genesis and Pink Floyd…so my father tells me ! Well Dad, things have moved on a little over the past 40 or so years and we can know wear fibre optics to look great on the dance floor.

Francesca Castagacci’s name tells you about her Italian roots, a key factor I might add looking at the flamboyant nature of her designer shoes. She has taken a retro concept and incorporated it into a modern wearable fashion accessory. It would also be an affordable concept that could work its way down to street level shops, I can see these making for an exotic night out at any Student Union bar.

Prabal Gurung…top class fashion design

Posted in Iconic Fashion Designers by Gregory on April 11, 2011

I daresay there are  many of you  who haven’t heard the name of Prabal Gurung. At which point I can ony quote Al Murray’s  catchphrase “Shame on you…Shame on you…” Prabal’s creations as a fashion designer are cherished by  the US societal “greats” such as  politicians wifes and TV show hosts e.g. Michelle Obama, Demi Moore, and Oprah Winfrey etc, etc. As well as devoting time on his own signature line, Gurung  also  finds the time to be the design director at Bill Blass. Needless to say, this new kid on the “fashion block” will be going places.

Prabal Gurung is delivering a class act, delivering the number one key element in my book, that of  artistic quality. Quality that will stand this work out from the rest, Prabal is an A- list designer.

Just take a look at the subtlety of the patterns between each segment , it creates an effortless flow down the dress, easy on the eye, and easy on the wearer. Using a very thin belt to give you the added waistline without distracting the eye from the overall image.

Prabal’s dresses are light, having an integral life of their own as they respond to your bodies movement.With today’s sun shining down, these would be ideal for your Spring and Summer collections.

I often ask the question “what is the attraction for black dresses? “, simply answered, they are  beautiful.This one would be envied by all, just look at the movement. All I need now is a Champagne bar with a pianist tickling the ivories in the background. But for me, I would love this colour block dress to give me  that wow factor, such a great juxtaposition of colours.

Mulberry Spring Summer 2011

Posted in British Fashion Designers by Gregory on April 5, 2011

I have just taken a few minutes to look at Mulberry’s new online video. This is the work of the talented photographer,who as you can see, has produced these dream like sequences.

 Do take a few moments, to check out the video,even if it is just to take a look at the lovely mulberry piglet. Mulberry’s artistic achievements have endeared me to their fashion, and this year will be no exception. Though a Spring with  blossoming hydrangea’s is a little early in anyones gardening calendar, but that’s artistic interpretation for you…anything goes as long as it gets its message across.

I must draw your attention to the D-ring wrap booties, with its walnut sole, that in its self is worth popping along to the shop to look at a quality finish of these boots.With an online price of £680, one “wood” expect a quality wood sole. Add that to the pale blue washed denim Oversized Tillie at £868, you are going to look fab…tastic. It has been a good start to the Mulberry fashion empire for 2011.

Andrew Majtenyi…world class fashion designer…Autumn 2011 collection

Posted in British Fashion Designers by Gregory on February 22, 2011

I met Andrew Majtenyi whilst I was at Pure London Fashion on a buying trip, and again at the London Fashion show last summer. We spent some time talking about things in general, nothing to do with fashion, so I wont bore you with the details. But I can honestly say that his personality comes across as grounded, enthusiastic and humorous, a real nice guy. Is his work nice, NO, to describe his work we must at least start with a more appropriate adjective such as  ” stunning”. His attention to detail is exquite, his designs are contemporary and above all in my book, they have to be wearable.

Andrew has been showing at the London Fashion Show for the past four years, and this year he has  brought you some stunning pieces of “wearable delicacies”.

This Autumn collection, as far as my comments are worth, are the best I’ve seen. His collection has grown not only in size, but in the maturity of his designs. They all fall in the “Lady Like” category and I think you would need to own several of this years collection, why, because you wouldn’t be satisfied with just one of these, you would want more.

Well, that  is just a taste of Andrews’ collection, I have saved the best for last and left them inside the Lookbook for you to take your time whist looking at the rest of Andrew’s collection of designer clothes. So, before you start put the kettle on and make yourself a cup of coffee first and really do take your time to look at Andrews amazing collection for 2011.

P.S. Do take a look at his fashion shoes and boots, I think they are cool…bye for now.

Louise Goldin fashion sculptress

Louise Goldin’s website has but the basic information that you have arrived at the fashion designers residence in the “galaxies of imagination”, as we know our own galaxy is unknown in its entirety, and our galaxy is one of millions. So, for those of you looking for coordinates to allow you to shout  “beam me up Scottie”, you will only get this response… louise goldin,louise goldin spring 2011,louise goldin designer,louise goldin fashion designer,louise goldin womens fashion clothes,louise goldin shoes,louise goldin knitwear,louise golden,louise goldin designer shoes,buy louise goldin designer shoes,buy designer clothes online, buy goldin fashion online, buy cheap designer fashion,Louise goldin at london fashion week 2011, for me this image from planet Goldin comes across as one of  David Hockney’s swimming pool inspired pictures…without a splash. Nonetheless it is an excellent image and gives us a real feel of what wearing a Goldin can do for you, if you can splash the cash for an airline ticket to the sun to get the background correct for when you a wearing one of her delightful signature pieces of crafted knitwear. There is a new wave of knitwear designers that are bringing exciting new revelations in wearing such an ancient and adaptable product. Excusing the rantings of Prince Charles’s lets wear more wool, you can find small groups of crafters making everything up to and including wedding gowns….but more about those later in the year.

Alexander McQueen Cut-Out College Bootie

Posted in British Fashion Designers by Gregory on February 15, 2011

Alexander McQueen Cut-Out College Bootie

I just wonder how many college students will be lashing out for this real cutie bootie. Well, in all honesty, what difference to the overdraft would a miserly £1165.00 make to a £50,000 overdraft. And if you wait until just before you graduate, at least you will look fantastic at any job interview you attend. I am not asking you to be reckless with your finances, but….mmmmm, its worth contemplating…an activity of great scholarly credit, whoops I’m back to finances!

I love the contrast of the white over stitching against the tan leather cut out design.The metal finishing to the laces gives it a touch of class, yet still giving you a designer shoe that is great for every day use. I think they would look great with a pair of  Balmain striped jeans.

Balmain Striped Jean.

 Balmain’s black and white striped jeans would add that extra for those who want a classic American look. Cost wise…well they happen to be the same price as your shoes, so your credit card statement will show up another £1165.00. Net -a-porter recommend Balmain’s baseball jacket, a snip at £4725 for its two-tone leather jacket.

Personally I would take a look at some authentic baseball jackets and have them shipped from the States. This will give you an authentic and original street scene look. There are so many Major League Baseball  clubs to choose from, for an example, below is  the Baltimore Orioles  classy sports jacket, and I think with postage would come to less than a hundred pounds. This is probably not your choice but link over to the MLB and look at all the different choices you could make.

Anne Valerie Hash’s designer clothes for lovers

French styling

If you need the feel of warm spice to add a little colour to your spring 2011, and you need a touch of french styling in your designer clothing collection, then I can reccommend anything from the couture house of Anne Valerie Hash. “You know how you look when you’re in love, that rosy glow?”  said Anne Valérie Hash  backstage at a recent show in Paris. “That’s how I wanted the clothes to look.” Over the seasons, this Paris designer has experimented with structure and flow of the key elements of her design collection. She dictates that the main constant has been a “subtle yet powerful sense of colour.

So Ann’s palette consists of silver and  greys, with elements of spicy saffron. Ann has used fabrics like georgette, mousseline, washed leather, and cotton jersey, and as you can see they lead to a distinct girly prescence, and a great casual street look.

 Jackets are tailored and the sleeves are cropped with the sleeves pushed up past the elbows. I have just brought one of the jackets and the short sleeve look is just fine, even my Dad likes it! Ann has definitely put a strong creative effort into this collection, and I love the  T-shirt with a mille-feuille of ruffles arcing across its front (first image above on the left). Just imagine a mild spring breeze catching these garments to add a little automation of its own.
