Fashion is...

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." - Coco Chanel.

This blog looks at fashion in its many incarnations, from the haute designers to the high street and from the trend-setters to the avid fashion followers. For this blogger, fashion is far more than the shirt on your back; it is communication, art, culture, anti-fashion, gender, revolution and resistance. It can instantly define or defy your identity. It is one of the most personal and unique things about you...

Festival Fasion: The Good, The Bald & The Über-Stylish

Festival season kicked off this weekend with Californian Music Festival Coachella. Armed with an eclectic line-up that included Jay-Z, La Roux, LCD Soundsystem, MGMT, Miike Snow and the curiously titled, Infected Mushroom, Coachella was guaranteed to draw an equally as diverse crowd. So, with more celebrities in the audience than on the stage, the start of the summer style statements were made. Agyness Deyn sported her new buzz-cut and all in attendance seemed to be channeling their inner haute hippies. Here's a round up of some of the trends spotted over the weekend...
