London Fashion Week SS10: Bora Aksu

This collection was inspired by the Oscar Wilde story ‘The Happy Prince’ and like the story I loved it. I agree that Bora Aksu is not for everyone, his designs are whimsical, incredibly girly and at times a little over the top. But this collection was more grown up, paired […]

How Darphin saved my skin

So a luxury beauty brand, gets in touch and offers you a skin scanning treatment, what do you say? “When, where, can I come today?” Of course. This is exactly what I did and ended up at Darphin headquarters to have my skin scanned. Now I have always been fairly […]
