New Kicks: my first Nike ID trainers

New Kicks: my first Nike ID trainers

I have new shoes. Yes, I know… so what? Well, I’m particularly excited about these shoes because I designed them myself. I’ve always wanted to get some Nike ID’s made, but spent hours and hours on the website trying to make my dream shoes and could never quite decide on what I wanted – too. much. bloody. choice. But since starting Fashercise I’ve left my high-heel days behind and I now spend my days wearing trainers, whether we’re working out or […]

London Fashion Week SS14: Sophia Webster

London Fashion Week SS14: Sophia Webster

Tucked away in a secret garden somewhere in Regent’s Park, young accessories designer Sophia Webster‘s “Insect Slumber Party” had every editor ooh-ing and aaah-ing like little girls who’d just walked into Barbie’s wardrobe. As the rain was pouring down outside we all huddled inside the tent, packed to the brim with flowers and colourful butterflies, smiley models having a blast at their slumber party, combined with a soft soundtrack of Katy B singing in the background. Damp feet aside, the […]

Alex Loves… Slip On Trainers

Alex Loves… Slip On Trainers

When I was 18, I went through a bit of a skater girl phase. Trucker caps and my checked Vans slip-ons were standard attire (thank god Twitter wasn’t around back then, heh?). I loved those Vans, I wore them so often they had that faded, vintage feel to them, the kind of look you simply can’t buy. My mom, however, didn’t agree. She continues to deny it to this day, but one day they disappeared, and I’m convinced she threw […]

Zaha Hadid x United Nude

Zaha Hadid x United Nude

In another life, I dreamt of being an architect. Sadly I sucked at physics, so somehow I ended up here instead, but my interest and passion for architecture always remained. I’ve always admired Zaha Hadid for her incredible designs, whether that’s buildings or bridges or furniture, so I was of course pretty excited to hear about her collaboration with Dutch shoe label United Nude (founded by Rem D. Koolhaas, an architect himself and nephew of the legendary Rem Koolhaas, another […]

Liberty x Nike AW13

Liberty x Nike AW13

  My obsession with sneakers continues… Today sees the launch of 3 brand new models of the ongoing Liberty x Nike collaboration, in stores and online now. What’s even better news though, is that the Liberty prints are now part of the NikeID collection, so you can design your own trainers featuring the famous floral prints – I’ve been designing my own all morning (all in the name of research, of course!) and it is really highly addictive stuff. You […]

10 Best… Summer Sandals

10 Best… Summer Sandals

I don’t know about you, but this sudden hot weather has taken me a little by surprise. Figuring out my summer wardrobe so quickly and suddenly has been a challenge to say the least. As happy as I’ve been to ditch the tights, I’m now left with very hot-weather-inappropriate footwear, so I’m on the lookout for some cool sandals. There’s so many great ones out there in every possible price range, I had to share 10 of my favourite pairs […]

Caroline Issa for L.K. Bennett

Caroline Issa for L.K. Bennett

Just this morning I was having a conversation about designer collaborations and how it would be nice to see something other than celebrities and huge designers collaborating with brands, a collaboration with interesting people perhaps. Well, L.K. Bennett did just that. Caroline Issa may be a well known figure within the fashion industry, both as a Fashion Director at Tank Magazine as well as becoming a bit of a streetstyle photographer’s darling for her immaculate style, but let’s face it, […]

First Look: Joanne Stoker for Dune

First Look: Joanne Stoker for Dune

London-based shoe designer Joanne Stoker has been on my radar for a little while, and it looks like I’m not the only one to have noticed her amazing talent. As well as her own collections she recently collaborated with Matthew Williamson and Eudon Choi (those pom pom heels were divine!) for their London Fashion Week collections and now she’s hitting the high street with a collection for Dune. This is the third designer collaboration for Dune, after the successful collections […]

Thursday Wishlist: The Sneaker Edition

Thursday Wishlist: The Sneaker Edition

This cold snap has had me grabbing for comfy, warm shoes and reignited my love for sneakers (a lifetime ago I used to collect them!). Here’s some of the best on the web – and no, I still don’t like wedge sneakers, but it looks like they’re not going anywhere so I’ve added a few to the list! 1. Ash Virgin Buckle High Tops, £129, from ASOS /// 2. Burberry Nude High Tops, £295, from Net-A-Porter /// 3. Chloé Quilted […]

Rachel Bilson’s ShoeMint lands at StylistPick

Rachel Bilson’s ShoeMint lands at StylistPick

ShoeMint, Rachel Bilson’s range of shoes she co-designs with her stylist Nicole Chavez, has finally landed in the UK, selling exclusively at StylistPick. Rachel is one of my style crushes, so I’m excited to see how this collaboration will go. The range has been a great success over in the US since its launch a few months ago, so I’m sure it’ll do great here too. The collection consists of heels and flats for every occasion, easy on the eye, […]

StylistPick’s Miranda Flatform

StylistPick’s Miranda Flatform

I’ve never worn flatforms before now. In fact, up until recently, I can’t say I liked them much (specifically the word flatform, it’s just silly, right?). Anyway, when StylistPick asked me to do “7 days with Stylistpick”, where I style one of their shoes every day for a week, I decided it would be a perfect opportunity to test this trend out. I’m now on day 4 (would be more, but trying to get my mom to take my picture […]
