Designer of the Day – Raquel Allegra

Easy, everyday elegance. Comfortable casuals with a cutting edge. Simple shapes, fine fabrics, soft tailoring and delicate distressing. All of these could be used to describe the “queen of Californian deconstruction”, aka Raquel Allegra. I am currently utterly obsessed with … Continue reading

Designer of the Day – L’Wren Scott

Today’s Designer of the Day is sadly deceased; a gentle and talented woman gone long before her time. You might know L’Wren Scott as Mick Jagger’s long-time partner, but she was an entrepreneur, a 6 foot 6 inch (in heels) model, … Continue reading

Designer of the Day – Vionnet

I recently posted an Instagram picture of two Madeleine Vionnet gowns from 1938 that were featured in Cally Blackman’s “100 Years of Fashion” (available to buy here). I was absolutely blown away by the modernity and timelessness of these two gowns … Continue reading

I haven’t done a “Designer of the Day” post since my first (featuring Costello Tagliapietra) so it’s high time I wrote another! Lately, I have been lusting over Belgian designer, Veronique Branquinho. She may not be as well known as her … Continue reading
