The collection, curated by Katie Grand, LOVE magazine’s editor and Louis Vuitton’s consultant, will be exhibited in Selfridges in London and Manchester  until November 14, before going to auction. A limited-edition run of three bears that have been given the fash-over by Anya Hindmarch, Paul Smith and Selfridges will also go on sale.

Styled to Rock

A trailer for Rihanna ‘s her reality TV show, Styled To Rock , has been released  and she’s on the hunt for the next “fashion sensation”. With the same sort of format as Project Runway, the sensation has to design and style an outfit for  Rhianna for her appearance at Wireless festival.

In comparison to most reality TV prizes the prize is rather small time and the fact Wireless has been and gone and we’ve seen the outfit doesn’t really make the show a must see. The designer, though, is still being kept under wraps;  and their big moment will play out on the show.

The winning outfit.

As Rhianna  won’t be in every episode, Henry Holland and Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud  act as co-hosts as well as Rihanna’s stylist, Lysa Cooper, makes  appearances throughout acting as a guru.

The show airs on Sky Living next month. Check out the clip below.

Rihanna to front a new reality fashion show.

Designer Henry Holland will co host, alongside Girl Alouds’ Nicola Roberts, Rihanna’s new fashion television show. The pair will team up to search the UK for the country’s next big design star. The final winner will have their work worn by Rihanna during her performance at London’s Wireless Festival in July.

“I’m really excited about this new show,” said Henry. “I think it’s a great concept and a brilliant opportunity and platform for designers and stylists. A chance to work with Rihanna and some great mentors across the music and fashion industries is definitely something I wish I had been lucky enough to be able to do when I was starting out.”


“It’s a tough industry to crack so it’s going to take more hard work than they can even imagine as well as masses of creative flair and a genuine love of fashion,” he added. “Working with Nicola and Rihanna is just the icing on the cake and should make things a lot more fun!”

More high-profile fashion and music names are expected to be added to the team within the next coming weeks.

Rhianna looks like she really wants to crack the fashion industry. Only last week we reported on her wanting to start her only fashion line.

London Fashion Week.

London Fashion Week for AW 2012 begins tomorrow, and London will be a frenzy with fashionista’s darting around to the catwalk shows.

Of all the Fashion Weeks, London has always seemed the quirkiest and the most accessible, mixing high fashion with high street brands, embracing new designers and celebrating home grown talent in the way Paris, New York and Milan don’t.

Kicking off at 9am with Antoni & Alison tomorrow morning, there will be over 97 catwalk shows over the next 5 days. We are most looking forward for shows from the following British designers; PPQ, Henry Holland, Unique (Topshop), Mulberry, Temperly London, and Alexander McQueen.

Other collections we are looking forward to are Richard Nicholl, Acne, Erdem and of course Mary Katrantzou, who’s Topshop collection hit stores tomorrow as well.

The full schedule for catwalk shows can be found here, and with a lot of shows digitally streaming you can watch many of the shows online. the digital schedule can be found here.
