#LFW Catwalk Edit

chelsea old town hall

On Tuesday I was invited along to the Old Town Hall in Chelsea for Calico PR’s Catwalk Edit, where they showcased the brands they represent’s latest collections and gave both brands, press and PRs a chance to network and introduce themselves. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day, enjoyed seeing some old faces and some new, but best of all made some pretty exciting brand discoveries for both regular and fuller cup.

Freya, Fantasie, Elomi, Huit, Fauve Press Event – Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

Since Becky very sadly had to go see her favourite band of all time and missed out on the last Moda show, she’d not seem these collections ‘in the flesh’, so she was particularly keen to go along to Eveden’s press event for their Spring/Summer 2013 collections for their brands Freya, Fantasie, Elomi and Huit.

H&M: Companies using ‘Real Women’ as models

There has been a re-release of the uproar surrounding the ‘Real Women’ debate on the blogosphere of late,  (for examples see here  here and here!). I’ve written on this subject in the past, but today I saw a story which has made me double-take. H&M’s ‘completely virtual’ swimwear models are an all-new extreme of ‘body snark’; with models who really aren’t ‘Real Women’ being used to display the products. The creepy mannequin-like faces and uncannily realistic bodies are a bit of a slap in the face to body acceptance activists as they go full circle on the ‘Real Women’ debate which has indeed gone a little too far now.
