    Victoria Beckham, Zuhair Murad, Ralph and Russo and the Ladies Suit

    Blake Lively stepped out in a pretty arresting white pinstripe suit last week in New York. The matching trousers, fitted waistcoat and long-line blazer were broken up with lacy shirt sleeves and a pile of pearls, our favourite in a line of lady suiting looks that the actress has favoured of late.

    Ladies suits are back in business, and we don't just mean in the boardroom. Flowing pant suits are hugely in vogue at the moment, with many Autumn/Winter and Resort ‘18/19 collections featuring chic suit styling for the modern woman. The best fabric for women's suits is a wool gaberdine, a wool crêpe or

  4. Colour Trend: Pink. Bright Pink.

    Colour Trend: Pink. Bright Pink.

    Pretty soon, the green grass of summer will give way to the burnished tones of Autumn and we will swiftly reacquaint ourselves with things like tights, long sleeves and coats as we hurtle towards winter.

    Wintery wardrobes tend to drift toward monochrome looks and dark, sombre colours, in keeping with the dull, grey skies. We all do it.  But there’s really no reason not to mix it up with a flash of bright colour – even just a little bit.  And if Oscar De La Renta, Valentino and Armani know anything about fashion, take note: lively fuchsia and hot pink colours are a thing for Autumn/Winter 201

  5. RED CARPET STYLE: ALL THE GLITZ FROM THE MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS 2018

    RED CARPET STYLE: ALL THE GLITZ FROM THE MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS 2018

    The MTV Video Music Awards were held last night, and as usual, the VMA red carpet was way funkier than anything we’ve seen at the stuffier, more formal awards shows this year. The Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Emmy’s, even the more creatively charged Grammy’s – they all call for more restraint, and, to put it bluntly, more dignity.

    Our 'Best Dressed in Chanel' Special - Happy Birthday Coco, This One's For You.

    In honour of what would have been Coco Chanel’s 135th birthday this weekend, our weekly Best Dressed list is dedicated to the French style icon. These are the Chanel looks we’ve loved most over the past 15 years – which one’s your number one?

    Sarah Jessica Parker, 2004

    Like SJP on the night, this glorious gun-metal grey dress was a winner - slinky on top and sparkly, embellished full skirt on the bottom, with a subtle hint of the famous legs that lie beneath.

  7. NEW IN! Dolce & Gabbana Couture Fabrics Straight from their Secret Spring/Summer '18 Show

    NEW IN! Dolce & Gabbana Couture Fabrics Straight from their Secret Spring/Summer '18 Show

    Dolce & Gabbana have a secret. But like all good secrets, it was bound to be discovered eventually. Something this spectacular really can’t stay hidden for long.

    Amidst the roar of Milan Fashion Week, right before their scheduled ready-to-wear show, the designers stage a surreptitious, hyper-exclusive runway show of their latest couture evening wear. Those invited are their top 0.1% of clientele and a sprinkling of influential fashion editors, who are granted coveted access to the now not-so-secret, 'secret show'. The collection is always breath-taking, each item a meticulously crafted piece of Dolce & Gabbana’s signature vibrant and sumptuous Sicilian couture. Edgy and shocking, often. Glamorous and unique, always.

    Dolce and Gabbana’s spring/summer ’18 collection didn’t disappoint. Those gathered to watch looked on in awe as models glided down the catwalk in magnificently detailed fabric and captivating designs. The designers used fabrics worthy of their ini

  8. Zebra Print - Take a Break, Leopard

    Zebra Print - Take a Break, Leopard

    The zebra stripe is set to knock the almighty leopard spot off its perch as queen of the animal print this season, and as people who look at fabric all day long, we’re pretty happy to welcome a little change in the kingdom. Don’t get us wrong, we will always love a leopard print - in tops or in dresses, on coats and on cushions – but it’s refreshing to see a new animal inspired pattern popping up here, there and everywhere.

  10. The English Rose - Classic Styles from the British Isles

    The English Rose - Classic Styles from the British Isles

    ‘What’s in a name? That which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet.’

    The English Rose. A nostalgic image of traditional British beauty, gently flushed and creamy skinned, moving demurely through the English country-side. Sipping tea on manicured lawns, garden parties held in the shade of a sprawling manor.

    Classic English style is graceful and ladylike.

  12. Magnificent Microfibre - The Ultimate Trouser Fabric

    Magnificent Microfibre - The Ultimate Trouser Fabric

    Microfibre is one of the most versatile fabrics available, an incredibly fine, synthetic material suited to many shapes and styles of clothing.  Whilst absorbent versions are often used in athletic apparel, regular microfibre is a superb fabric for more formal attire and office-wear.

    Microfibre is the ultimate trouser fabric. It doesn’t crease, it’s durable, lightweight and non-abrasive, and best of all, the soft texture of the fabric makes for very comfortable wear. There’s not much more you could ask of a material for everyday use or for comfort as you go about your work day.

    These microfibre fabrics are some of our most popular sellers, commonly used for making up smart-casual and formal women’s trousers.

    This black microfibre is reversible, so you can opt to display either the matte or the shinier side of the fabric
