CAN YOU CUT LIKE CLARK?

        Many names flew about during the “Swinging Sixties”, however one name proved predominant over all others, Raymond ‘Ossie’ Clark. Ossie was a young fashion designer that made his mark with his elegant and feminine gowns. He considered women to be goddesses and his ability to capture the beauty of a woman’s silhouette within the realm of fashion put him in great demand. Manolo Blahnik had once said "He created an incredible magic with the body and achieved what fashion should do - produce desire"

High Waisted Jeans

The 90’s is having a huge fashion revival at the moment, and one of the biggest trends which can be seen at the moment is high waisted jeans. They can be both flattering and completely the opposite if not styled correctly and you are in dangerous territory of looking frumpy or like your mum in her gardening jeans. The easiest, and most flattering, way of styling them is have them tight at the hips, but not so tight at the waist that they are cutting in and creating an unflattering silhoutte. High waisted jeans are actually quite comfortable, but only once you find the one, the one pair that fits you like a glove and moves with you. Some pairs cut in all the wrong places and can be extremely uncomfortable if they have to be worn higher!

Japanese fever has reached the western fashion market. People looking to create an interesting and unique outfit have grown bored of the endless blue jeans and t shirt fashion from the west and are now looking to the east for colourful and beautiful silks. The most instantly recognisable of all Japanese fashions has to be the Kimono. This is a classic piece of clothing which dates back to the 16th century, which was then referenced to as a kosode.
