Versace pulled out all the stops with this colourful collection. Classic ‘Versace’ scroll and baroque inspired designs with a twist – acid colours update the classic prints. More intricate paisley prints from Lanvin.
Mark Making, bold and clean colourful abstract prints from Dior. Floral Inky and moody mark making at Alexander Mcqueen – red pops on both white and black grounds. Bright, bold, graphic camo prints from Valentino and a more painterly mark making came print from Marni.
As always there were some animal prints making an appearance on the runway. There were the very bold zebra prints from Sacai, to classic leopard prints from Versace, Dries Van Noten and D&G. Combining these more traditional prints with tropical or floral designs really makes a statement.

The flags were flying , fab colours and patterns captured on the Glastonbury Instagram. Lets see what the fashion had to say… what were the artist wearing?
A lot of bold colours from Jeff Goldblums flower shirt to Liam Gallaghers plaid shirt.
Sean Paul was definitely not blending in with his camouflage choice. Octavian was channeling summer with his tie dye prints.
Jorja Smith looked amazing in an animal print sequin Jumpsuit and The foals we’re folding back wit their colourful leopard print either.
All images from Glastonbury and BBCsounds instagram accounts.
The sun came out and the streets of London were teaming with lovely ladies in summer prints. Something new, something old, something floral and something bold.
Daisy was released in the UK in 1973, with the tag line “Mary Quant makes Daisy the best dressed doll in the world”. Her name was a reference to Mary Quant’s logo, a daisy flower.
The dolls at the exhibition were wearing miniature versions of Mary Quants garment. Here are a few for you to feast your eyes on. Own photos from V and A.
Carrier Bags: The bags in the exhibition had some fabulous prints – bold, colourful and graphic.
Self-taught designer Nigel Quiney produced silk scarves that sold in London boutiques and department stores, as well as stationary made by his familys printing firm. Quant used some of his vibrant, psychedelia-inspired carrier bags for a window display at the Bazaar at 113 New Bond Street which was open 1967-1969. Own photos from the exhibition.

Here are some highlight of the amazing fashion pieces worn by Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh; as the hotly anticipated season two has just started. I’m sure many of their fashion statements are bound to be making their way onto the high street – as we all channel our inner kick-ass leading ladies.

The styling and sets are incredible. You are taken to a different world of glamour mixed with grunge. Assassins mixed with CIA agents. Fashion mixed with costumes. The fashion helps to tell the story of these characters as you become attached and invested in them – even when you aren’t sure whether you should.

Print of the week
A good print is one that complements and adds value to a fabric through colour & technique.
What is it?
Every day we come across accreditation labeling in our lives for consumer products such as for Organic, Fairtrade, PETA, etc. A growing requirement in the Textile Industry is the Oeko-tex so we thought we should investigate exactly what this is.
The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® label can be issued for textile products at all stages of production; yarns, fabrics, dyed or finished materials, accessories all the way through to a finished product such as baby clothes, clothing, sportswear, home textiles,furnishings for decorative purposes.
A final product certification according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is only possible if all components of an end product comply with the required criteria – that means accessory parts such as buttons, zips, interlinings, hook-and-loop fasteners etc. in addition to the outer material and the sewing threads, or prints and coatings.
Each element is comprehensively and strictly tested for over 300 substances which are deemed unhealthy for human contact such as;
- Banned Azo colourants
- and many more
They test for numerous other harmful chemicals independently of international legislation. This accreditation is not an ethical, organic or environmental award but purely assuring that no harm will come to the person from the article with which they are physically in contact.
However, it is a indicator of good and responsible practice and as such is likely to has a positive outcome in other areas. We hope that this request from retailers will be stringently applied worldwide and that it is not just playing lip service to a well meaning UK public. The textile and clothing industry need to raise the bar and this is one way to do it and welcomed by many leading companies such as Miroglio and Sublitex srl.
