I’ve just returned from my first ever NYFW, having attended a few shows as part of New York Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week Men’s, and Style Fashion Week for the Fall/WInter 2018 on behalf of Fashion Fix Daily, where I work as a staff writer and editorial assistant. It was an incredible experience that I am still buzzing from, so I thought I’d do a little roundup of the iconic week here on Urbanity.
Paris is the undisputable global fashion capital when it comes to big brands and luxury goods, but what about shopping small and independent? Having just returned from a fashion-filled week in the city of lights, with wintery walks down the Champs Elysees admiring Chanel flagship stores and hours spent admiring the Christian Dior exhibition (read my review of the highlights here), I thought I’d round up the best indie shops in Paris to visit if you’re looking to explore beyond the big chains.
Can you believe that it’s only a week and a half until Christmas! This is the time where shopping panic sets in, and if like me the people you’re buying for are super stylish, creative and interesting (eep!), you know that a bath bomb gift set from a department store just won’t suffice. Here, I’ve rounded up 10 great gift ideas from local, ethical and indie designers that you can buy online now and get delivered in time to wrap and hide under the tree, guaranteed to be loved by your creative friends and family.
I can hardly contain my excitement (and stress), its only 5 days until Coburg House Open Studios! As you may know, I am the new gallery manager at Coburg House, an artist studios complex in Leith, Edinburgh, so this year I am helping to organise the big Christmas open studios event! Read more to find out why this is one free festive shindig that’s certainly not to be missed!
