Dominic Jones launched his debut collection in Spring 2009 and has since become a favourite among celebrities, including the likes of Florence Welsh, Beyonce, Vivvenne Westwood and Sienna Miller. Not only does he have a long list of celebrity followers, Anna Wintour even picked up on his designs at Spring/Summer 2009 London Fashion Week.
Sophia Neophitou also recently commissioned Dominc to design accessories for the prestigious Thierry Mugler Show, showing just how popular his designs have become.
Design Signature? “A tough, almost aggressive elegance with a luxury finish.”
Ideal Client? “Someone with their own sense of style and a little bit of punk in their heart.”
His SS10 look book (images above) features Alice Dellal (Jones' Business Partner), Lizzy Jagger, Eliza Cummings, Emma Chitty and Billy Howard so you can tell that his brand definitely oozes the cool factor.
Definitely one to watch.

Lara Stone for Interview Magazine
Photographer Craig McDean
Styling: Karl Templer
After my post about Lara's cover shoot for the 90th Anniversary for Vogue Paris, i couldn't help but find more Lara. Lara looks incredible in these puff ball dresses. Definitely a new fan.
For my DVC dissertation i have chosen to investigate the Future of Fashion, in particular looking at how brands are currently utalising the internet and what new technology will be influencing fashion brands in the future. This has lead me to research things like Fashion Film, which i have become to be facinated by, Live Streaming of fashion shows, How brands are using Mobile Phones and crazy new technology like 'try it on' and 'Sourcemap 0.8' If you have any thoughts, let me know!
Check out the Chanel 'Remember Me' film by Karl Lagerfeld. One of my favourites.

Vogue Paris. October 2010.
90th Anniversary Issue.
Probably one of the most striking Vogues covers i have seen in a long while. It pains me to say this but how hot does Lara Stone look?!
Every month Vogue arrives on my doorstep, and after i excitedly open it, i discover yet another boring cover of a 'it' celebrity. Vogue should be about fashion, innovation and most of all it should be striking. I think Alexandra Shulman needs to follow in Carine Roitfeld's footsteps and produce something that has the WOW factor.

Found this shoot on a blog i follow called 10th Muse. Leopard print is literally everywhere at the moment and i like seeing how different editorials portray it. This shot has got it spot on. Loving the mixture of photography with text- something I've always wanted to try, and also the out of focus shots.

Charlotte Olympia Scans from SS11 Lookbook.
During fashion week i helped set up a dinner for Charlotte Olympia and some of her industry friends. The dinner decorations included dyed pink pineapples, Palm tree leaves and shoes on the mantelpiece. It was pretty spectacular. Charlotte's new collection is amazing, out of this world even! She never fails to disappoint, Charlotte really knows what girls love. The whole collection is inspired by the tropical, so think new perspex clutches with little pineapples as clasps, a lot of leopard print and bright colours. wow.
(Rubbish quality as was taken on my phone!)
