BIBA: The Fashion. The Lifestyle. The Brand


When I heard that there was going to be a Biba exhibition in Southend-on-Sea I was intrigued to say the least. Southend is not somewhere you would automatically think of when you think of fashion exhibitions (I don't mean this in a bad way, just that I was unaware of any such museums), so I was looking forward to going down there to check it out. 

Style Muse: Chantal Kelly

Chantal Kelly was born Chantal Bassignani in Marseilles, in the south of France, on 8 April 1950. She had an interest in music from an early age and took singing lessons as a teenager. Her teacher was so impressed that in 1965 she sent a recording of Chantal's performances to the Philips label who promptly signed her up.

Goodwood Revival 2016


Now that it's September it must be time for my favourite event of the year, Goodwood Revival. As regular readers will know, I go to this event every year with my family and have done for many years (I worked out the other day that I've been going on and off for the last 15 years and have been consecutively for the last 5). I actually can't believe that it has come around again so soon, I know people say it all the time but this year has really flown by!
