Popped over to The British Fashion Awards the other night. It was a parred down pretty causal affair at this London hotel called The Savoy. Champers, goodie bags and trying not to be blinded by the fashion and flash bulbs were on order.

Seriously, it was an amazing night. British fashion's on fire at the moment and these awards were an excellent celebration of the talent coming out of old Blights at the mo.

Manolo Blahnik CBE

Let's talk about shoes! Any excuse! I was already looking forward to the British Fashion Awards next week and so was pretty pleased to hear that the British Fashion Council have announced that the winner of the Outstanding Achievement Award is non other than shoe king Manolo Blahnik CBE. 

Manolo moved to Paris in 1965 and was encouraged by fashion journalist Diana Vreeland to concentrate on shoes. That was some good advice! By 1971 he was based in London making shoes and a year later Ossie Clark used his collections in one of his eponymous shows. The rest is fashion history as Manolo went on to have a ridiculously impressive career that spans over 40 years and resulted in some of the most covetable shoe designs ever. He's an icon! Congrats Manolo!

Araki makes trashy cinema of the highest caliber - tacky tasteless shoegazing overkill     His films are kinda like a pot of Fluff, bit wrong, satisfying and leave you feeling a little jumpy. These are two personal 90's faves...

I mentioned in a previous post how pleased I was to meet and chat with the very talented Ada Zanditon at London Fashion Week. Ada's SS13 collection is really fresh and exciting, I want it all!

Ada very kindly showed me a preview of her amazing fashion film, Tigress Reign, starring Summer Rayne Oakes as The Tigress and Yrsa Daley-Ward as The Hunter - made thanks to sponsorship from Easyjet Holidays.

I'm very excited to now be able to share it in full because it's just stunning! Look!

Shot on location in Cyprus, the film was directed by the incredible Thomas Knights with styling by the lovely Alexis Knox. 

If this film and amazing collection doesn't provoke a longing for the return of summer I don't know what will! Enjoy!


Love ST.AG’s latest work for denim brand Mark Thomas Taylor!..
