    Style At Any Age: Our Collaboration With Winternational Part 2

    0 comments /
    As you'll know from Part 1, we've teamed up with designer skiwear online boutique, Winternational, to celebrate style at every age.  Winternational's founder, Tamsin, and I are different ages, but we came together to show off each other's pieces and prove that true style transcends age.  In Part 1 I selected my favourite pieces from their collection and played dress up Tamsin for a mini photoshoot with Katie Frost. Well, for the second part of the photoshoot, I swapped places with Tamsin, and she picked out her favourite pieces from our collection to model. Before choosing her favourite pieces, Tamsin told me...

    Skiwear With Style: Our Collaboration with Winternational Part 1

    0 comments /
    As a small independent fashion online boutique, I always think it's important to support similar businesses, who share the same ethos and values. I first met Tamsin, founder of online designer skiwear boutique Winternational, over a year ago at a networking event, and we instantly clicked. We're both passionate about supporting independent designers, championing style at every age, and investing in slow sustainable fashion; quality over quantity.  For some time we've been talking about collaborating as our boutiques sit perfectly alongside each other. Finally a couple of weekends ago we got together to have fun playing dress up in each...

    Look at this picture. How old do you think this man and woman are? The other day I was flicking through my facebook feed when a post for Lumen, the new 50+ dating app, came up, featuring this picture. In the comments section were several accusations of the woman in the picture not being in her 50s – one even said she could be the man’s daughter. And those who accepted she might be 50, thought she was far hotter than her peers. Now I personally know the founders of Lumen, and can attest that all their images feature ‘real’...

    At the-Bias-cut.com we really want to help you make an informed decision when making a purchase - and that includes understanding the fabric the garment is made from. We take fabric very seriously, and every time we select a piece it has to be of excellent quality and a suitable fabric. And we have no shame in saying some pieces are synthetic, because synthetic fabrics have come a long way, with many just as good quality, if not more so, than natural.  So far I've explored why polyester deserves a second chance, and revealed what viscose really is. So today...

    The Psychology of Fashion: Interviewing Professor Carolyn Mair PhD

    0 comments /
    You may remember last May I had the pleasure of attending a talk by Professor Carolyn Mair on the psychology of fashion, and it inspired me to write this piece on why colour matters. But, not only did I find the talk fascinating, I found it really interesting that Professor Mair didn't start in fashion; she was a psychologist who eventually decided to focus on the industry.  Fashion is sometimes thought of as an industry that's stupid and only for 'bimboes'. But it's far from it; in the UK alone it's worth £32 billion, so there has to be some brains...
