When it comes to art, I’ve always been most fond of photographs, however a good drawing can also catch my attention, especially a good fashion illustration. Therefore, I cannot wait to attend Drawing Fashion, an exhibition at the Design Museum, which will feature original illustrations from the collections of Chanel, Dior, Comme des Garçons and Poiret as well as Viktor & Rolf, Lacroix and McQueen.
Alongside these spectacular images will be film-clips, news reels, music and photography, giving you the whole story, and enhancing the illustrations. Also, there will be three events, starting with the Drawing Fashion Debate tonight, Manolo Blahnik in Conversation with Colin McDowell, which has already sold out, and Stephen Jones in Conversation with Colin McDowell on Wednesday 26th January.
Drawing Fashion is open from 3rd November 2010 until 6th March 2011. Tickets to talks and events cost £15 or £7.50 if you are a member.
Costume jewellery is amazing, but costume jewellery in the style of designer brands is even better, because let’s face it not all of us can afford £250 for a necklace that is only going to be in for one season. This is the reason I am loving Talullah Tu, the accessories website that takes the best of the runway and recreates it at high street price. So, if you have seen a fabulous piece of jewellery that is way out of your price range I suggest you try Tallulah Tu before you give up hope. Also, if you fancy a little pre pay day pick me up, their sale is now on with pieces from £3!

If, like About your Dress, you have been lusting after clogs ever since they sauntered down Chanel’s S/S10 catwalk, but couldn’t justify the price tag, your wait is over as they have now landed on more affordable ground. Kurt Geiger has released two styles of shoes, classed as a platform court (Jola) and a platform sandal (Jada), which are essentially clogs. Both styles have a dark wooden sole, however the Jada style comes in white and beige leather, whereas the Jola comes in black and beige leather. At £140 a pair, they are not exactly a pick me up treat, but they are definitely an investment this season!
