Ethical Fashion: What It Is & Where To Shop

The fashion industry is one of the biggest contributors to pressing global issues such as climate change and modern slavery.

Get the Look for Less: Kitted Out In Knitwear

It is said that the cable-knit sweatshirt was used in the 19th Century to protect fishermen from harsh weather conditions and cold sea air.

Get the Look for Less: That 70s Show

In recent years, the fashion industry has drawn inspiration for garments of today from various past decades. The 1980s and 1990s have reappeared again and again, and now the style of the 1970s has weaved its way into 2017, forging itself as the frontrunner for Autumn/Winter. Designers such as Prada, Miu Miu and Calvin Klein…

Find Your Ideal Look This Winter…

Winter is terrifying for someone who loves sun-kissed skin and warm humid afternoons. Winters in the UK can be disorienting for someone who is used to pleasant weather during this time of year. Not everyone has an appetite for winter, but the comfort of a warm coat can eventually make you fall in love with…

Preview: The Festive Fore Street Flea Market

One of my favourite things about studying in Exeter is that there is a real sense of local pride in the city itself. From farmers markets to craft fairs; the locals of Exeter are conscious that the community needs to come together to support and nurture local produce and talent, including students and non-students. Indie Exeter…

Get the Look for Less: The Velvet Touch

It feels as if velvet never really left the high street. It has been everywhere since the trend started, taking on any form of clothing with designers trying to think of new ways to make it great again. However, this Autumn, velvet doesn’t seem as tired and boring as it may have seemed in the…

Dr. Martens Store Opening in Exeter!

What comes to mind when you think of Docs? The punk rockers, festival-goers, alternative bunch? Or maybe originality, non-conformism, rebelling. To me, Docs are just an embodiment of self expression, and at it’s most simple – really great shoes. The history and groove of the label is pretty much tangible when you walk into the…

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of representing Razz at the Sancho’s Dress press evening before the grand opening of their new store this Saturday 11th November.

Get the Look for Less: Suits You!

A suit has long been a powerful emblem in a woman’s wardrobe. From Coco Chanel shaping the modern woman in 1914, to 1966 when Yves Saint Laurent developed le smoking, the first tuxedo deigned for women. Throughout the 20th Century, the suit adapted itself to the women of the time, and now, its moment has…

Autumn Look Book

Autumn is one of the more difficult seasons to dress for. The weather in England is temperamental at the best of times – as I’m writing this I’m staring out the window at a bleak dismal sky, when yesterday we had been basking in the glorious sunshine – and this time of year provides even…
