Ten principal dancers from the Royal Ballet glide down the catwalk en pointe; like models in heels, but oh so vibrant and joyful. Their movements are choreographed to a soundtrack which is mixed live during the show; it had previously been co-composed by the designer herself along with the Brit-award winning and Oscar-nominated composer Nick Wollage. For me, this [...]
Today we met with Diane Pernet who is Co-Editor in Chief of Zoo magazine and owner of one of the most famous fashion blogs, A Shaded View on Fashion. Diane took a trip down to Erin’s Model Sanctuary to find out more about the emotionally considerate side of fashion. Diane and I spoke about new [...]
So, it’s the night before London Fashion Week and the parties have already started! TODAY, All Walks co-founder Erin O’Connor launched The Model Sanctuary 2011 to the press. And All Walks went to pay a visit and to support this brilliant sister organisation which nurtures models and students during London Fashion Week. Whilst we were [...]
Their muses were beautiful – none other than super model Christy Turlington and A-list actress Julia Roberts. However, instead of gracefully accepting their beauty and presence, L’oreal threw these precious gifts out of their childish playpen, wanting more flawless, newer versions for their Maybelline and Lancome products. The quick fix of the airbrushing tool appeared [...]
Designer Alexandra Groover has created a short film with All Walks model Lucy Freeman to be shown alongside her Spring / Summer 2012 collection during London Fashion Week.
April 2011; we had fashion shows, the shortest working weeks ever (thank you, bank holidays) and something about a royal wedding?

Of course you would look at her, sashaying through the streets of Milan in her electric blue heels. She’s elegant, that’s for sure. Stylish? Definitely. But curvy? That seems to have hit a nerve. When esteemed photo-blogger Scott Schuman ‘The Sartorialist’ recently described one of his street style subjects ‘sturdy’ and ‘curvy’, the omnipresent size [...]
Spanish political group the Convergence and Union (CIU) has presented a proposal to the Government, urging them to take action against eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia in Spain. The initiative proposes reinforcement of the computer offenses investigation team, to deal with unlawful website content relating to eating disorders. The proposal also requests that [...]
I found H&M’s last advertising campaign very refreshing; not only for the light and beach portrayed but for the male models they chose to wear the swimmear designs.

For many, the shop mannequin is the first point of real contact that they have with a design, which they may previously have seen on the runway or in the media, and this experience informs how they may wear the garment. Window displays have been a integral part of the shopping experience ever since the [...]
SLiNK magazine is a new online fashion publication aimed at women who are size 14 and above. Editor, Rivkie Baum, trained as a designer and worked as a stylist and freelance journalist before moving into personal shopping, and then a retail-based styling role for plus size women. It was this experience that opened her eyes to the gap in the market for a plus size magazine with the same aspirational qualities as the major industry glossies.
