HAPPY WEEKEND

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAIL...AND SAYING NO





How easy it is to make a mistake by not examining the detail...having my own business teaches me new things each day...and one of them being never forget the detail...even when people say they understand what you require, check and check again they have understood...I use to rely too much on a quick 'yep, got it...get back to you soon'...something else I am learning, slowly, is the art of saying 'no'
all too often I get myself into situations which I should have simply said 'no' to...how hard is that? We never stop learning, do we?

Here are a few exquisite fashion details...couture gems...

A LITTLE RED FOR THE WEEKEND

Another week flies by...I can't quite believe we're here in October already...I'm sure the years didn't use to go so fast...did they? Awaiting a new delivery of stock and a waiting list of customers eager for their winter cashmere...nothing lovelier than a chilly evening wrapped in cashmere...but for now, let's have
a little red for the weekend...




Chanel




Schiaparelli




Carolina Herrera




Giorgio Armani




Maison Martin Margiola




Armani


And some wise words for the weekend...





HAPPY WEEKEND














QUOTE OF THE DAY: CHRISTY TURLINGTON





"I'D LIKE TO THINK THAT AS OUR WORLD GETS SO
FAKE AND PLASTIC THERE'S A BIT OF 
LIGHT ON SOMEONE NOT TAKING THAT PATH."


If you haven't already purchased the Winter edition of PORTER magazine don't forget to pick it up...I think it is becoming the best fashion magazine to buy...as a lifetime reader of VOGUE it saddens me to say...but it really needs to up its game.

The interview with Christy Turlington is inspiring...what a lady...beauty, serenity, grace, intelligence and passion...she has it all...and more.

BEAUTY IN SIMPLICITY





There's a beauty in simplicity it's about being YOU...it's the way you move, speak and express yourself...your kindness to yourself and others and your warmth...keep things simple.
We are all so good at over complicating things. Just be...beauty is about charisma and character it's what you feel about yourself...you create your own beauty by being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out.















HAPPY WEEKEND



WORKS OF ART: FASHION ILLUSTRATION



Bill Donovan


Not so long ago fashion illustrations were often discarded or forgotten about, beautiful works of art lost forever but now there is a huge interest in collecting these original works...I have begun to collect some myself...more affordable than photography and every bit as desirable.

Many, many years ago I worked in Harrods and I was asked to sit for a young fashion illustrator as she sketched the beautiful Dior suits I modelled...I have been trying to find them but I think, sadly they have been lost in the umpteen moves since then.

Here are a few of my favourites...



David Downton



Michael Canetti



Aurore de La Morinerie



Rene Gruau



Clifford Coffin
