I love this time of year where we're between the mild days of Autumn and the shivering days of Winter. By the time we get into the cold period the prospect of layering possibilities is exciting for me, and I am a sucker for a tailored winter coat. I have had my eye on a Zara leather and wool concoction for a while now and am saving my pennies one by one in the hope that it might soon be mine.

For now dressing is strictly on a day-to-day basis; some days still allow a lighter jacket (I am wearing my biker to death right now) whilst others are too cold for such nonsense. But let's assume it's one of the milder days right now and here is what I would want to wear. A shearling jacket in case the wind gets chilly, the dweeb-tee (I am back at university and back in geek mode after all), and cropped khaki denim, accessorised with an Alexander Wang bag, Zara courts, and as always, a Dannijo neck-piece.

Sorry for being so lax on the blogging front lately. I've just moved back to uni and settling back in has been a bit hectic; unfortunately blogging has taken a back seat. But I'm back on the ball now and I promise to be much better!

For my dissertation I'm looking at 'fashion spaces'. It's hard to really explain what I mean by the term fashion spaces, but I want to examine how we define, create and shape a fashion space, how we react to a space of fashion, and just how important runway space is in the world of fashion. Personally, I think it is paramount, and most of the interview responses I received seemed to agree with me. These pictures above are a few fashion runway moments that I have picked out as 'sticking in the memory'. These shows had set designs that went above and beyond the necessary and which are memorable for the scene rather than the clothes.
