I know it has been a while since I last updated this blog post, but I have been away in Jamaica for my grandmother’s funeral. Returning from the humidity of the Caribbean, I expected to be greeted with a real chill or at the very least a nip in the air, but instead I found myself stripping off my brand new detachable fur collar (autumn/winter 2011) and unbuttoning my cardi (chunky knit autumn/winter 2010) feeling confused and ever so slightly annoyed.
Fashion is weird and here’s why. Inspiration can come from anywhere, but usually it starts off on the streets from some cool or kooky kid who stumbles upon a different way to wear her blazer, or maybe in some trendy art school, a film, festival or event - a designer then picks up on it and creates a weird and wonderful version of it, it hits the catwalk, filters down to the High St racks, to the masses and back onto some school kid again - weird.
