dear santa

On a recent trip to London, I laid eyes on the most beautiful coat -Balmain chained calf hair coat - simply out of this world.

The beauty is in the brick work

 Who would of thought a rotted and decayed building would be so beautiful.

Dazzled by her Beauty and Style

Once ruling the nightlife of NYC long before Paris Hilton. Known for her striking, unforgettable beauty that one could see in her.

Here for a good time, not a long time. Edie Sedgwick left her mark. (Quotation taken from Sam Griffin.)

Art Fashion Identity

Hussein Chalayan, 'Son' of Sonzai Suru, 2010

Dai Rees, 'Carapace: Triptych, The Butcher’s Window', 2003.

Yinka Shonibare, 'Little Rich Girls', 2010

The exhibiton is divided into four sections, Storytelling, Building, Belonging of confronting and Performance. The contemporary art pieces are very much out there and I must say my favourite is 'Little Rich Girls' by Yinka Shonibare.Yinka Shonibare and Hussein Chalayan, new work was commissioned especially for Aware by London College of Fashion and the Royal Academy of Arts. Yinka Shonibare has created 18 designs of childrens dresses with inspiration from the 19th century. She worked with bespoke tailor Chris Stevens to create a wall of memorial.
