5 Minutes With… Amy Smilovic

Amy Smilovi

In case there was anyone left in the English speaking world who still didn’t know, I’m off to New York for fashion week tomorrow!!! To say I’m looking forward to it would be a serious understatement.

Suffice to say, all good intentions went straight out the window approximately 2 minutes after I arrived.

Vogue

If you do one single thing today, make it checking out the Vogue website Not content with having been the award-winning digital fashion authority for nearly 17 years, the world’s foremost sartorial bible has decided to completely revamp their site.  The new Vogue.co.uk site is apparently built in HTML5 and CSS3. For those who not fully versed in tech lingo (i.e me) that means it will look amazing on the small screens of tablet devices, on the largest of desktop monitors, and all sizes in between.
