Dorothy Perkins launches IN-PRINT graduate collection

Dorothy Perkins launches IN-PRINT graduate collection

Last year, Dorothy Perkins launched a competition to find fresh talent in Print Design. Hundreds of aspiring designers from the UK’s top fashion schools entered the competition, and the jury, consisting of industry insiders like Grace Woodward, Olivia Rubin and DP’s Buying Director Charlotte Pettican, chose Northumbria’s Charis Younger as the winner. I love it when big high street brands embrace young talent, so I was pretty excited to see the end result. I met Charis last week at Arcadia […]

Bright and bold at Dorothy Perkins AW11

Bright and bold at Dorothy Perkins AW11

For years, Dorothy Perkins sort of slipped under my radar a little bit at the press days. That is, until now. For AW11, DP made a bold and colourful statement, and it worked: I was wowed – probably even more than by big sister Topshop (controversial, I know!) Colourblocking has been such a trend for the past few seasons and if it’s up to Dorothy Perkins, it isn’t going anywhere just yet, it’s just getting more amplified. There are none […]

Denim Challenge Day 5: Get the look

Denim Challenge Day 5: Get the look

I had so many compliments and questions about the sequinned, neon, leopard-ish jacket I’m wearing in my look today, which came from ASOS a few years ago. I looked the internet up and down all day to find something similar (really, I went through the entire thing), but couldn’t really find something like it. I’m sure you can find amazing similar numbers in vintage stores, so that would be my best bet, but this sequinned cardigan works for me too! […]

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 5: Wideleg

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 5: Wideleg

Just can’t believe it’s the last day of the Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge already! I have to admit: I had a surprisingly great time doing this. Where I was so apprehensive in the beginning of the week, scared even, I have been on a bit of a rollercoaster, learned about style blogging (difficult!), had tons of lovely comments and emails encouraging me and even went out to an official event wearing… flares!!! Yep, you can well and truly say I’ve […]

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 4: Colour

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 4: Colour

I have very mixed feelings about Day 4 of the Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge, where we’re trying out coloured jeans. They’re a massive trend this summer, I’m in love with them, I actually really enjoy wearing these salmon coloured ones, but I’m also aware they’re perhaps not the most flattering ones if you’ve got curves. I chose a pair of ankle length ones, which turn out just right for me as a regular length. My new favourite model, hurrah! As […]

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 3: Boy Fit

It’s the third day of the Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge and I must admit I’m starting to really enjoy myself! I didn’t take all the pics in one go, but take them day by day because I enjoy how this week is evolving and changing me. The nice comments are making me feel a little more daring and bold, so I’m already trying slightly different looks than I would have done last week. So I know at the start of […]

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 2: Skinny Flare

Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge Day 2: Skinny Flare

Day 2 of the Dorothy Perkins Denim Challenge, and it’s already been… challenging. I’ve already traveled from Belgium to London and somehow managed to lose most of my pictures for the day 2 shoot. Of course, my favourite pics were in that batch. I’d hoped it was a Belgium-related fault, but back in London the pictures still said “unidentified format”. So, I threw open my suitcase, hopped in my jeans again and shot them in about 2 minutes. This was […]
