Agyness Deyn: Not Just A Pretty Face.

Title A

Model Agyness Deyn is launching her own fashion brand this Spring called Title A.

The Brit model who was practically on every catwalk during the 00’s, has produced a collection inspired by her own relaxed, tough-luxe, androgynous style. Agyness isn’t the first model to move into fashion design, iconic model Kate Moss famously teamed up with Topshop to create multiple capsule collections for the high-street brand. So Agyness is in good company. I suspect this will be the start of a new model/fashion designer trend. How fabulous would a Cara Delevingne collection be?

Modelling and fashion design may be opposite sides of the same coin but rarely do the two cross over. I’m not sure I can recall one single fashion designer who has ventured into modelling? Traditionally models were required to be seen and not heard, only the occasional sneer or smile hinted at the models personality. Recognising a quirky personality or wicked sense of style is an asset, brands are now opting for ‘stand out’ models to front their catwalk shows. It’s not surprising savvy models want to channel their creativity into creating their own brands.

LFW Highlights

London Fashion Week is well and truly over for another season. I think we can all agree LFW was on fire this season- in the words of BFC chief exec Caroline Rush, London created ‘the perfect storm’. Here are my LFW highlights……

– Marios Schwab

Marios

I have a soft spot for Marios Schwab, dark and delicious is always on the menu. This time capes, peek-a-boo slits and heavy, black applique created a suitably dramatic show. Off the shoulder, full-length velvet gowns gave a theatrical nod to a bygone era. Knitwear was sumptuous, snake-skin added a modern twist and patent leather amped up the sex appeal. Rich burgundy, warm cream, matte black and a dash of navy coloured the whole collection.
