The name alone was a surefire way to drag me out of my cocoon nest and kick my imagination into overdrive, a name strong enough to subtly hint that I should spruce myself up for the occasion. But what could be so impossible about Catwalk Shows? Footage of RuPaul walking effortlessly in 10 inch […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
Another month, another fashion exhibition! I was particularly fond of this one, held at the Victoria & Albert Museum, as it deals with a couple of underlying themes close to my heart – history and cinema – reminding us that the evolution of Italian fashion is closely related to its political, social and cinematographic […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
How good was Makegood festival 2014 last Saturday? Well, very good indeed!

Fashion exhibitions are often a treat for the eyes but rarely succeed in provoking an emotional response. When I booked my ticket for Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!, I knew the display of clothes, hats and shoes would be astonishing – even bordering on outlandish – but little did I know that their artistic expression […]Continue Reading... 4 Comments.
Let’s face it, we all have qualms, and especially when embarking on something new. A monthly entry and I am to write it! Yikes! I just realised what they mean by the fear of the blank page!
