Here are some of the fashion news headlines of the day: Diane von Furstenberg will be awarded the 2011 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal from the Municipal Art Society of New York. She is getting the award next week for her contributions to NYC which include assisting in the redevelopment of...

The collections keep pouring out from the incredibly talented kids showing at this year's Graduate Fashion Week. There were some amazing stand-out creations from the students at Birmingham University including those from Sean Denham who brought puffballs to life. Others worth noting came from...

Whispered by The Clothes Whisperer I had the pleasure of seeing Istituto Marangoni (Paris campus) student Christina Economou's collection walk twice at Graduate Fashion Week, once at the International Colleges show earlier in the week, and then again at the Gala show on Wednesday where it...

Last week, the London College of Fashion held its annual BA (Hons) Design and Technology Show at its new venue, The Studio in the midst of a concrete office complex next to Paddington (where Monsieur Christopher Kane staged his most recent fashion week soiree), to the chagrin of editors and...

The standard at the Liverpool show at Graduate fashion week unfortunately failed to excite this year in the same way that the university's students have done in the past. Considering that the collections are not designed to be customer-friendly and are the students first real opportunity to...

I'm such a huge fan of Graduate Fashion Week, and was lucky enough to get a press pass this year (as well as an invite from my old Uni, UEL). I was so impressed with the standard of work at UEL, and I'm always amazed how much effort these students put in (especially, if like me, they were...
