why i do what I do.....

I am now Fashion Director at Glamour magazine but following on from the success of my weekly column in the Sunday Times Style magazine I thought I would bring this page to life every week and also give you the chance to comment. This page is not for me to dictate what you should be wearing but to offer ideas on how to put wearable outfits together. Its not what you wear it's how you wear it!

Milan Fashion Week Day 5

The Highlights.....

Hurrah the sun is here and time to strike that pose!

Colour blocking with neutrals grey, black and white always keep shapes and silhouettes simple
Leather jacket by Acne
Grey funnel neck top by Maison Martin Margiela
White skirt by Jil Sander
Bag by Prada
Shoes by Celine

Marni became one of my Milan Fashion Week favourites with crazy textures and shapes and birds nest looking hair styles not for everyone but the overall look was just my thing

Dolce & Gabbana are always a highlight on the fashion week calender....always a. Themed show today was medieval inspired set in a snowy woodland and clothes featured embellished hoods and crystal thigh boots as well as woodland creatures embroidered on clothes my fav looks below

For those who don't know Agnona, stylish wardrobe staples and in particular a great place to find a good coat....

Checking out details today like these metal shoe laces on the Calvin Klein boots or sheepskin bags

The 'Gentlewoman' bag by Bally sits on it's angled side taking inspiration from the heels of gentlemen's shoes that have also got the inside heel shaved off to stop the trousers getting caught when putting them on

Another genius idea is the shoe bag bag

Corsa Como is the Dover Street Market of Milan stocking all the coolest and latest brands and they are so ahead of the game they even have the fresh off the catwalk Jeremy Scott for Moschino collection that was shown only 2 days ago! Bags were around the £600 who wants one?!
