Fashion Shows are no longer just catwalks. They’re performances. Productions. Events. Art and design is expertly enthused through not only the garments, but the overall theme of the event, from setting, lighting and so on.
Raf Simmons’ Spring 2014 Dior show at Paris Fashion Week is a perfect example of this movement.
Got your annual Christmas Jumper ready? Looking for a place to wear it where the atmosphere will be as jolly, tac-tastic and festively fun as your outfit?!

Vogue’s September issue introduces ‘Prima Donna’, their fall look that ‘blossoms into Autumn’. Styling by Lucinda Chambers and photography by Mario Testino, brings to life a ‘classic yet exotic’ look that focuses on rich florals, towering silhouettes and ‘seductively falling shoulder lines’. With ‘sleek definition’ a romantic decadence is set for Autumn fashion.
So… Where to wear this look?
As one of the ‘big four’ fashion capitals, London has major influence over the international fashion scene. Londoners are famous for their risk-taking fashion, edgy confident looks and classic brands. Let’s not forget that from Britain came Vivienne Westwood’s punk rein, Burberry’s classic collections and Kate Moss’ world recognised style.
So as a ‘fashion forward’ nation, as opposed to hearing, ‘what to wear to an event’, I hear more and more the dilemma of ‘I’ve bought a new fantastic outfit but I’m not sure where to wear it?!’
