Kate Moss X Topshop

Everyone regardless of whether they're into fashion or not know Kate Moss, and her iconic status in the Fashion World. Thus it was no surprise to anyone when it was announced that Kate would be launching a collection for Topshop.

She designed from 2007-2010 and has returned after a brief hiatus.

The model’s new range is a “wardrobe autobiography”, featuring recreations of her own personal favourites, featuring luxurious silk pyjamas, summer dresses, lots of evening wear and a twist on Moss classic with fringes, leather, sequins and even a silver gown.

The collection promises a high end finish but it is pricey for the high street. The Pieces start at $157.

The Kate Moss collection will be sold globally in all Topshop stores and online at Topshop.com , NET-A-PORTER.COM, Nordstrom stores and Nordstrom.com on the morning of Wednesday 30 April.

Fashion Blogger: L O V E - A E S T H E T I C S

So earlier today, I was reading an interesting article about a fashion blogger, Ivania Carpio. She is from the Netherlands, and is obsessed with the colour white! Her entire blog consists of clothes in White. She even even dyed her naturally brown hair grey-white!

Except for the rare time she adds a dash of gold or black, Ivania Carpio, 25, dresses exclusively in white.
 I found that extremely cool and chic! For her White is most def the new black! 

The blog has garnered attention from the fashion world and Ivania has been featured in a host of magazines, including fashion bible Vogue.

‘I don't get this with white. White evokes more of a feeling; fresh, clean, pure, empty but mostly a feeling of possibilities. And because so little concrete images to mind when seeing white, I can project my own personality and mood onto it.' says Ivania.

She also says that white represents the 'early stages' of clothes. When tailoring clothes, the first patterns are also made in a creamy or white fabric,' she explains. I think these early stages of garments are beautiful. By not adding any color or print all attention is directed to the technical details and fit, that is what interests me most in fashion.'

You can view more of her articles on her blog: L O V E - A E S T H E T I C S

Ed Sheeran grants dying wish of Dublin teen who passes away moments after...

A 15 year old teenager from Dublin who was in the final stages of battling cystic fibrosis, revealed that her dying wish was to hear from her favourite singer Ed Sheeran.

So Triona Priestley's friends & family quickly got to work and got #SongForTri trending on Twitter on Sunday. But it didn't reach Ed, until 'The Independent' paper contacted Ed to let him know about it.

So then Ed tweeted her:

However once 'The Independent were informed of the severity of Triona's health they got in touch with Ed again and gave him Triona's number.

Then Ed contacted her and talked with her, and also sang her favourite song 'Little Bird.' She then passed away a few moments after that. *i'm sorry but I'm honestly crying while I write this*

Triona's friend Lucy Hanlon updated her Facebook to say:

"It is with greatness that I have to share with you all today our beautiful angel was taken from us. As we all know about the Twitter campaign, Ed's manager Stuart Camp emailed me and today Ed rang Triona and personally sang Little Bird to her as she took her last breaths. Triona left us listening to her idol surrounded by all the people who lover her. People's respect is incredible. We would like to thank everyone. Goodnight, my angel. Sleep tight."

Triona's brother Colm thanked everyone who started and supported the #SongForTri campaign.

"Myself and my family would like to thank Ed Sheeran and everyone who started and supported the #SongForTri campaign," he told independent.ie this evening.

"What they gave us and her was a beautiful last moment together. Triona slipped into a sleep as Ed was singing to her and passed away shortly afterwards.

"So Ed Sheeran sang her to sleep.

"We would like to thank everyone who played their part in making that happen," he continued.

"We are all so proud of Triona and how she fought Cystic Fibrosis.

"Everyone loved Triona so much and she knew that. Thank you."

The Cystic Fibrosis Association Ireland  uploaded a video in honour of Triona made by her friends Niamh Molloy and Diaarmuid O'Connell. The aim of the video is to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis, and show how much Triona means to everyone.

Also a HUGE thank you to the kindness of the folks at 'The Independent' who managed to get Ed just in time
And to all of the amazing people who made sure to help in anyway they could, God Bless you all! It makes me happy to know that people do care about one another and honestly i'm just in awe mixed in with some sadness...

Brooklyn Beckham Man About Town Cover

Brooklyn Beckham has made his 1st modelling debut at the age of 15, for the cover of Man About Town magazine.

The pictures were taken by photographer Alasdair McLellan, who shot Victoria for UK Vogue and David for Fantastic Man, and is a 'friend of the family'.

Man About Town magazine, a biannual publication, says it is 'targeted at high-end business-engaged and culturally-orientated male urbanities... giving a guide to the seasonal men must haves.'

Brooklyn follows in the footsteps of his younger brother Romeo, 11, who had a starring role in a Burberry campaign in December 2012.

Also David was featured on the cover for the Spring/Summer 2013 issue which was shot by Karim Sadli.

 Just like his famous parents, it seems that Brooklyn's also a dedicated follower of fashion as he's pictured wearing labels including Ralph Lauren, Saint Laurent and Supreme.

The dashing teen appears on the cover wearing a quiff and a navy blue bomber jacket and tie - while the word 'Quiche' is emblazoned on the front of the magazine, referring to the new term for 'hot' coined by Australian comic Chris Lilley in his hit HBO series, Ja'mie: Private School Girl.

 David and Victoria are immensely proud of all their children, and they never push them into anything even though the boys get lots of offers. Brooklyn is focused on school and soccer, but of course he was so excited to get his first magazine cover shoot as he's interested in photography like his dad. 

We could not have wished for a stronger subject than Brooklyn to bring this story to life. He was a diligent, relaxed cover star for his first ever fashion shoot. The story was a genuine pleasure for all involved. 

Brooklyn was a true professional and had a keen eye in the styling process, collaborating on selections from designers including Ralph Lauren, Saint Laurent and Supreme. It is clear that he is becoming a credit to the family name, not only possibly the most famous in the world but one with a wealth of heavyweight fashion influence behind it.'
