2010 Style

Meeting & working with so many industry professionals, as I am sure you are aware, often provokes the question, ‘what will you be wearing this year?’

As much as I love to keep my finger on the pulse & follow the latest fashions, 2010 for me is really all about individual style, marching to the beat of your own drums as it were.

I remember a dear friend of mine, in the bid to adopt individuality foolishly took a blow-pen to her trainers… To say the result was unsightly is an understatement; rather it resembled skittle-infused hobgoblin sick. Needless to say that the British Weather was nothing but reliable & I cannot for one minute say I was displeased to see the rain wash a stream of red, green and pink down the footpath. Yet her creativity had to be admired.

Not that I’m asking you to go as far as to Crayola you’re coveted Gucci ‘clemence’ platform sandals nor tie-dye your chino’s. In fact, I’m not asking you to do anything. Do what you like. That is the message after all.


Beige Concern

We’ve had tan, cream, natural, sand and biscuit, but this season beige returns to us under a new title –Nude. High end designers such as Miuccia Bianchi Prada of Miu Miu, Calvin Klein and Thakoon all showcased this widely discussed colour, as did High Street brands River Island and Urban Outfitters.


In fact, Nude appears through so many different guises this season it can’t be avoided. But why would we want to with such a vast choice of dresses, handbags, shoes, jackets and tailored trousers available.

But is Nude for everyone? The simple answer is no, but that is not say it should be avoided altogether. The key to success with this colour is to find the perfect nude for you & with so many varieties out there this should be a breeze. Try placing the garment, whatever it may be, next to your cheek. Ask yourself if the colour makes you look washed out, blushed and dull or radiant and glowing.


New Website.

That's right I've got a new website I thought I'd share with Bambidextrous readers.


Okay, so it's nothing to do with Fashion Forecasting but it comes with a message that there will be more great posts up soon, so keep your finger on the pulse.
