Fashion Story x


In the focaccia bunfight of fashion, how is true style evaluated and who wins the cherry on the top?


We know sometimes less is more..


That it’s thinking out of the box..that magic moment when perfectionists take risks..


Finding that rare sweet spot moment when it takes brains and a perverse delight to play a swaggering fool. ¬†When you aren’t.


Elegance and body language is in the mix..


And it’s not about money..


Style isn’t beauty, it’s perfectly picked proportions.


That fine, hazy line between victim and genius, because there’s no beauty without strangeness.

Fashion is conforming to current styles and trends.

Style is throwing them out of the window.

My love of these women – they are utter icons in my eyes – has been further enhanced by a new Cutting Edge documentary by Sue Barnes shown here in the UK on channel 4 this week called ‘Fabulous Fashionistas’.

Bridget Sojourner 1 The title is ghastly, and in total contrast to the subject matter..six individuals with an average age of 80 representing a stunning antidote to all those that bow down at the font of youth.
