I’ve always had a little bit of a soft spot for gothic fashion, never the whole look but I love pulling the odd piece into another look. CMRTYZ are a design duo who create a mish mash of art, music and clothes which are usually aimed at men. However, they have also produced a fab selection of stylishly ripped dressed and tops for women that would look fab thrown over tshirts or maxi’s for that Dior inspired look.


Drawing Fashion

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.
