5 Minutes With: Koral Denim Designer, Nicole King Burroughs

KORAL_DENIM_FW15_nicole-5

Given that I'm currently in the States, birthplace of denim, casual wear as fashion wear and a billion premium jean brands, it seems fitting that today's interview is with both a born n' raised US native and an expert on the stuff. Nicole Kind Burroughs has had the kind of denim education that makes it little wonder Koral, the brand who enlisted her as lead designer when they launched in 2012, has become a global hit despite its late arrival in a hugely competitive market. I could go on to list her accolades and experiences but instead I'll let the…

BAFTA 2015 with CÎROC

In case I hadn’t already made it sickeningly clear, fashion month is here and I’m very very excited!! Wonderful though it is, the international shows are an organisational debacle to say the least so really the last thing I should have been doing two nights before heading to New York was getting fancied up and dancing the night away.

Between the anticipation, the rocketing stress levels and the vast quantities of caffeine I’ve already started imbibing (yep, even more than usual, sacre bleu!) it’s a marvel I’ve managed to sit still long enough to write this post.

It’s a damn near impossible question to answer. Regardless of the sleepless nights, early starts, aching feet and hideous hangovers, I completely and utterly adore fashion week and enjoy pretty much every second of it. Yep, even the organisation element, so partial am I to an excel spreadsheet. The buzz of new york, innovation of London, glamour of Milan, all out dreaminess of Paris and the designers who unveil the fruits of their labour in each all deserve more than a mention. But of course, that would take an astronomically long post and you guys will have enough essay length fashion week diaries to contend with over the next few weeks. So, difficult though it is to even begin to play favourites, here are a few of the shows I’m particularly itching to see…
