Whether it is funky teddy bears, painted elephants or decorated plates, I simply love a quirky campaign that requires a designer/artist to put their stamp on an alternative product – and even more so when it is in the name of charity.
The latest fundraiser is for UNICEF, and involves a number of design houses creating a one-off doll with the theme ‘Wonderful Paris’ in mind, to be sold at a UNICEF auction on December 2. The full collection will be on display at the Paris’s Petit Palais until December 1.
All proceeds will go towards providing vaccinations for children in the Darfur region of Sudan.
Here is some of the designs from the world’s most elite designers.

Dior for UNICEF
Docle & Gabbana for UNICEF

Tis the season….
With but a week or so to go until the final month of the year, we are swiftly moving into the ‘party season’.
Whilst I will be looking at a number of festive party styles in the next couple of weeks, I thought I would get us started with a bit of embellishment. If there is one season that requires heaps of sparkly embellishment, be it for brunch, dinner or office party, it is the ‘party season’.

What you ask – her shoes, sunglasses, jetset life, husband….?
Well I say, all of the above, but what I am totally obsessed with is her fashion label. A design house that has stunned the fashion pack in the past few years, and has given many of the world’s most elite fashion designers a run for their money. Victoria Beckham has become one of the world’s most influential style guru’s both on and off of the catwalk.
Here is some of the Victoria Beckham collection featuring clean, minimalist and classic pieces that will last for seasons.
