    Estethica - the epitome of modern luxury

    2013-03-05 13:46

    Since arriving in London, I have been on a quest to hunt down the best sustainable fashion designers the UK has to offer. It has been a roller coaster, to say the least. A lot of ups - a few of downs - a few moments of utter disappointment, but, thanks to this season's Estethica, the... More

    I recently took part in my first webinar. To be honest, when I registered, I didn't even know what a webinar was. This particular online get-together was in aid of the 2013 SOURCE Brand Preview.... More

    Give fashion packaging the boot this season

    2013-01-28 18:48

    How would you like it if you went to a restaurant, ordered a flame-grilled steak, and it came smothered in fatty gravy, slopped onto the plate with a dubious skin on top, like a 70s school dinner? And when you queried whether this really was the dish you ordered, the waiter replied, “It IS a... More

    Great expectations

    2013-01-17 12:25

    Week thirteen in London. A new year. New friends. A new place to live. A new bedroom (thankfully with a window this time). New housemates. I should be excited, right?

    Hello London

    2012-12-08 19:14

    Eight weeks ago I landed in London. I was pleasantly surprised to see the sun high in the sky, as I had been preparing myself (after strong advice from some English friends) for the worst. I arrived with my backpack, 'Monty,' a very small amount of luggage (mainly summer gear, far more suited... More
