I’m in love with the concept of interchangeable heels, very nice and if you have a huge appartement or a dressing room larger than a football ground, you have to adopt Tanya’s concept? Continue reading

ALEJust when you thought that you had seen it all on the catwalks, here comes a new trend, and in this case a rather catwalk challenging one for models… fetishes & bondage!

Now, we all know that music has a huge impact on fashion and ‘vice’ versa. As arts, they both feed from each other. Have you seen the latest video of Rihanna: ‘S&M’ yet? Seen Gaga’s latest shoes?

Well fashion seems to have also taken its fetish toys out of the secret drawer and it is now proudly and unapologetically preaching its love affair with fetishes.

From the very upper crust of fashion: Louis Vuitton, Herve Leger, and so on… to the trendy “cool kids” from London, to Continue reading

DUBAIFASHIONWEEKDubai fashion week was surely one the best organised fashion week in the world. To my mind the Paris Fashion Week is dead. The reasons are: clients are no more in Paris, they are living in London, Dubai, Miami, New York and Shanghai.

Instead of concentring on business and rich tourism, we have been transforming Paris in a huge hotel through AREB&B. You can see all the tourists trolling their luggage like snail. Paris City Hall is responsible for this as on one side it advertises that “Paris loves Fashion” and on the other side, it prohibits car in Paris downtown. I would be very surprised to see Mrs Wintour riding a bicycle from show to show to save the planet. Unfortunately in France the French talented designers leave France because there is no future anymore. Continue reading
