Takin' care of business


Even though I don't regularly practice as a photographer my degree in Fashion with Photography keeps me interested in the latest editorials, adverts and fashion films. There are a lot of talented photographers and stylists out there but often the concepts behind the editorials lack imagination and blend in amongst the rest. However, when I saw 'Takin' care of business' for Bon Magazine I loved it. 7 women are styled in their usual attire for work and an image of their work place is posted opposite. I'm not sure that my mechanic looks quite so stylish when I pop in for my yearly MOT but the juxtaposition of the contrasting images works brilliantly. The simplicity in the styling and the layout adds to the impact of the concept. Well done Bon Magazine- a great editorial.

I love a chance to interview new faces whether it be music or fashion related so I jumped at the chance to interview the wonderful Arlissa for Issue 03 of Indie magazine, TMRW. Named as the BBC Sound of 2013 and with a single with Nas already released she is doing incredibly well. TMRW is a great magazine that features not only new faces but the well known in music and fashion On the cover of Issue 03 is Ellie Goulding. You can purchase your copy online or in many retailers such as Selfridges. I would suggest taking a visit to Selfridges as their magazine section is pure magazine heaven!

Trend Watch: Floral Passion

                           3. Premium Floral Trousers, Asos- £27   4. Floral Clutch Bag    

This is probably the most girly style post I have ever posted and I'm sure I ever will! I wear a lot of black and dark colours but the weather in London today has inspired me to look to the Spring/Summer trends for inspiration. Floral prints are start to fill our high street stores and online boutiques already in time for Summer. The prints are mainly delicate with some heavier prints also making a huge impact. I am on the search for a floral trouser and blazer combo at the moment, as they were a huge hit at London Fashion Week, but so far I am failing to find the right one. To wear floral I would probably pick one of the above items and layer with a lot of black. Ok so I really can't take black completely out of my wardrobe...sorry! I love the blazer from designer, MinkPink and I have a feeling it will stay in your wardrobe for the next few seasons. Whether you want to wear floral top to toe or take a more subtle approach like myself, embrace it somehow. With floral anything goes and you can also recycle some old floral pieces from past seasons.

Interview with Sons of Heroes

It's always great to see your name in print, and even better when it's a magazine that you have supported since the beginning. I started writing for menswear magazine, PAUSE in April 2012 and less than a year later I am Features Editor and have interviewed Vince Kidd, Mikill Pane and many fashion brands including Sons of Heroes. The team is close knit and everyone works really hard and each issue is growing stronger and stronger. I am always on the lookout for up-and-coming menswear brands to interview and feature both online and for the print magazine. For more information please contact me on: katie@pausemag.co.uk
