Panache: Modelled by Role Models

Following on from last year's amazing Modelled by Role Models campaign and the announcement of Olympic boxing champion Nicola Adams as the face of their sports bra, Panache are using International Women's Day to launch their search for their role models of 2016. If the world is changed by examples rather than opinions, then we... Continue Reading →

Lust List: January

Last year's Lust List evolved from lingerie that I spotted and loved (even if there was no way I could afford or fit into it), into a more inclusive monthly list of interesting underwear, swimwear or nightwear that I had discovered. I was going to start this year with a list of interesting sale items,... Continue Reading →

Art + Feminism = STOPJECTIFY

Back in February 2014 I wrote about a fundraising campaign for a feminist art exhibition called Big Swinging Ovaries. Created by London-based Berliner artist Jess de Wahls, who I interviewed for my Exploring Creativity blog series, the show featured huge sculptural portraits of inspirational women which were all hand made by Jess from recycled textiles,...

The power of the flat shoe

Last Friday, I wore towering heels for the first time in a while. As the balls of my feet ache after just a few hours in my otherwise comfortable United Nude Eamz pumps or my Irregular Choice Trinkletina heels, I'm guessing that my 40-year-old feet have simply had enough. These days, the only high heels... Continue Reading →

Women Leaders in the Business of Fashion

Yesterday evening I attended a panel discussion on the topic of women as leaders in the fashion industry, hosted by the London College of Fashion's Fashion Business School and held at the Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition space on the Strand. The panel was chaired by Professor Frances Corner, Head of London College of Fashion,... Continue Reading →

Scream Queens

I was contacted recently by feminist film director Mélodie Roulaud as she wanted to share her latest project, Scream Queens. A short fashion film from a director who is passionate about promoting body diversity would have been high on my watch list anyway, but the summary is even more wonderful. What happens when you invite... Continue Reading →

Introducing… the Quite Delightful project

Back in September 2014, I placed an order for the the first issue of a new erotic magazine for women called Quite Frankly. Aspiring to promote an honest, intelligent and open exploration of female sexuality, this luxurious publication was certainly made to be poured over rather than quickly consumed. If hot and well written sex... Continue Reading →

My So-Called Secret Identity

I still don't quite know why I never really got into comics. I've always loved engaging stories, illustration and superheroes. Comic obsessed television characters like Tim Bisley and Sheldon Cooper resonate with me for a reason I have yet to fathom, and a large proportion on my favourite films and tv shows are based on...

Review: Fashion on the Ration

A couple of weeks ago, I visited the Fashion on the Ration exhibition at the Imperial War Museum (IWM). Having lived in London for almost a decade, I am somewhat ashamed to say that I hadn't visited IWM before, despite having paid frequent visits to IWM North on Salford Quays back when I lived in...
