RiRi sizzles for Dior


All of social media set ablaze as Rihanna teased an image of her clad in Dior on her Instagram last week. Being the first black woman to star in a Dior campaign, Rihanna’s position as the iconic brand’s poster girl has been seen as a groundbreaking step toward more diverse representations in high fashion.

Wishes do come true


Fashion folks all over the globe rejoiced in excitement as the punk-glam French brand, Balmain made its collaboration with H&M official at the Billboard Music awards red carpet last week.


Our favourite stylist Allia Al Rufai took to Instagram with a #tbt wishlist quote claiming that she’s been praying for this collaboration to happen for a long time and some wishes really do come true.


Well, we can’t to see what the coveted collection has in store for us – surely enough to go out of stock the day of its release.

All hail McQueen


Local Brits were invited to recommend ‘people of historic significance’ who worked in the realm of visual arts to become the face of the £20 note. Can you guess who made the most popular choice? The iconic fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s name is one of the most popular submissions and we can’t think of anyone more deserving of this honour.
