    Ageism & Fashion Trade Shows: 2 Years In Ageism & Fashion Trade Shows: 2 Years In

    1 comment /
    Last week I had the honour of being invited to speak at Pure London – the UK’s leading fashion trade show. With the-Bias-Cut.com going from strength to strength, I was asked to talk about how I built the business from scratch and why it’s my goal to celebrate stylish women of all ages. Given I was the 10.30am slot – the first of the day – I didn't have high expectations of the number who would attend. But I was overwhelmed by the number of people who did, with many having coming to the show especially to hear more about...

    When Is Fashion A Good Investment? When Is Fashion A Good Investment?

    Every year I write an article inspired by Vogue’s ageless style issue (read 2015’s review here and 2016’s commentary here) and this year is no exception. Going through it today I was pleased to see many more ‘older’ women featured. I still would like Vogue to bite the bullet and feature a woman over 40 on their cover – particularly on an issue like this – but there’s no denying there is progress for which it should be congratulated. But for me, the best thing about this issue is Lisa Armstrong’s insightful article: “As the decades unfurl, we need fashion...

    What Does 'Frumpy' Really Mean? What Does 'Frumpy' Really Mean?

    3 comments /
    Last weekend India Knight wrote a great piece in The Sunday Times on why being middle aged doesn’t mean wanting to dress frumpy. Whilst we all know this already to be true, it’s always great reading a national article promoting this message to the wider masses. But it got me thinking. What does ‘frumpy’ really mean? Because, as with ‘style’ we all have our own interpretations of it. So whilst it’s all very well saying ‘we don’t want frumpy clothes’, if we’re unable to define what we mean in some way, then it becomes much harder for brands and retailers...

    How To Be Stylishly Sustainable - Interviewing Siobhan of Well Styled Stylist How To Be Stylishly Sustainable - Interviewing Siobhan of Well Styled Stylist

    I first came across Siobhan Young of Well Styled Stylist on Instagram. I was immediately taken by her colourful, playful approach to fashion, as well as her focus on style rather than being a slave to trends.  But as I got to know her, I also understood her to be a true champion of sustainable style - something she strong encourages her clients to embrace and discusses during her style workshops. As you'll know, I also am a big believer in for fashion, and am against the fast disposable fashion cycle that has come to dominate the high streets.  Keen...

    Red Carpet Decorum: Why Actresses Should Discuss Their Outfits Red Carpet Decorum: Why Actresses Should Discuss Their Outfits

      This time of year, there isn’t always a huge amount to look forward to. But there’s one thing that always brightens up the seemingly endless cold, drizzly days and long, dark nights: the start of the Hollywood awards season. When it comes to who wins the awards themselves, I’m not really that fussed. Hollywood is an overly self congratulatory industry, and I think the number of awards that are dished out are rather excessive. But, unsurprisingly, I do love the outfits. I’m always intrigued to see who pulled out all the stops and who, well, didn’t. Plus it’s always...
