Tonight [ Tuesday April 21st ] Channel 4 takes an in depth look at the high street end of the plus size fashion industry. The documentary follows some well-known plus size bloggers such as Georgina Horne of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust [ See our exclusive interview with her featuring our Spot Jersey Ruched Wrap Dress ]  and established high street brands.

The programme states that 60% of British women are now plus size and the plus size fashion industry is one of the fastest growing areas in fashion retail.

Spotted at Coachella

April 15th, 2015 5:11 pm


Hayley Hasselhoff looked incredible in our Net Mesh bomber jacket whilst spending time at the music festival Coachella last weekend. As the first major festival of 2015, Coachella sets the style template high for the rest of the summer and is a known spot for street style and trend inspiration. We love the urban edge and the look Hayley’s created with this piece.  Grab it online here.




Grammy Awards Fashion round up

February 9th, 2015 3:42 pm


No awards ceremony is complete without a fashion round up, and The 57th Grammy Awards ceremony is no exception. The stars did not disappoint on Sunday evening, showing ample cleavage, leg and style (with a few exceptions.)

Here are some looks we spotted and simply loved.

Black is the new black

The red carpet at this ceremony went a shade of black, with few female attendees daring to wear any colour at all. Each item had its own little quirk and we loved the curves on display in each look.

Beyonce led the way in her custom dress by Proenza Schouler. The deep V neck line and long sleeves complement each other perfectly. She sure looks bootylicious in this dress.

Nicki Minaj dressed in Tom Ford. The dress showed ample cleavage and curves. It was like this dress was made for her.

Meghan Trainor was ‘all about that lace’ in a sheer, off-the-shoulder Galia Lahav gown. We love how this dress accentuates her figure and how she’s revealed yet concealed her shape in this sheer fabric.

Jessie J who regularly chooses casual and unusual attire, wowed in a demure black dress. Showing off plenty of skin in this completely sheer gown.

Gwen Stefani went for a jumpsuit with a twist wearing Atelier Versace. We love the unusual detailing at the front of it.

Straight off the catwalk

Kim Kardashian West, dressed in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture. This dress instantly caught everyone’s attention, from the glistening material, the low v neck finish opening to the high v front slit, the embellished shoulders and pocket detailing.  We could go on forever. Wow factor as always from Kim.

Rihanna was dressed in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. Some have disagreed and stated they in fact hate this look, but we think anything Rihanna wears she can pull off. This pink number is a winner in our eyes.

Katy Perry wore her look straight off the catwalk for Zuhair Murad Haute Couture. Glistening like a rock star, this look came straight off the back of her amazing Super Bowl half time show costumes from Jeremey Scott. Katy you’re a style firework.

Tux luxe

The men weren’t the only ones that rocked the tux this awards season with Anna Kendrick, in Band of Outsiders wowing the crowd in this low cut suit. Such a simple yet eye catching look. We’re envious here at the office.

Sia and her sidekick Maddie made a statement with their matching look and wigs reminiscent of the styles seen on Rick Owens’ runway.
