This Month’s Metro Herald Style Column

Hello,

In case you missed it, here’s this month’s Metro Herald style column.

Metro Life is taking style advice from the people who really know their stuff, with a rotating panel of bloggers giving their top style tips. This week style connoisseur Whisty of whisty.wordpress.com returns

“ONE of the most interesting things about fashion blogging is getting to see clothing collections before they’re released into stores. Shops like Oasis, Penneys / Primark and River Island get in touch twice a year and invite bloggers, fashion editors and stylists to view their collections for the coming season.

If you’ve ever watched The Devil Wears Prada, you will know the cerulean speech – when magazine boss Miranda Priestly tells assistant Andy exactly how it was that she came to wear a blue sweater that day. The gist of it being, that although Andy thinks she has made a sartorial choice that separates her from her fashion mag colleagues, as Miranda explains, she is in fact, very much a part of the fashion chain, albeit the weakest link.

Another point about the speech is how trends filter down from designers to the high street and so on. Collections are shown at international fashion weeks about six months in advance of the season. From there you can see how trends, styles and colours have all been translated from the designer collections to the high street a month or two later.

For example, one trend that was big on the catwalks for SS2012 was the peplum; a kind of mini frill attached to a top or a skirt that sits on the hips. Designers like Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Nina Ricci and Jason Wu all did versions of the peplum.

By the time the high street collections were launched, just about  every shop had a version in their collections.

Yours,

Whisty Xx
