Premsela Masters of Amateurism event recap

Last Sunday evening Premsela’s Masters of Amateurism event, featuring Katja Hentschel of Glamcanyon, took place in Meneer de Wit. As miss Hentschel is also featured in the book ‘Fashion Blogs’, we were invited to join the party, which included a special presentation on the topic of fashion blogging in relation to amateurism.

Aynouk Tan, fashion journalist and one of the book’s chapter introduction writers, opened the discussion with a short review of ‘Fashion Blogs’, calling it “a timeless document that puts fashion blogging as a field on the map”. As she did in her article, she pointed out that the phenomenon of scenesters has always existed, but that it was never as visible as it is now, due to the internet. Because of this new phenomenon of fashion blogging, kids are now taken much more seriously by the fashion world, and bloggers can no longer be ignored by the fashion elite. She said: “They’re all different and unique persons, they write from their own unique perspective on fashion”, and even had a small piece of advice for all the fashion bloggers out there: “Just be yourself, and fame and fortune will happen for you. It sounds very Oprah, but it’s true.” Read more »

Shows that are saving me from boredom this summer: Jersey Couture

Jersey Couture is a new reality soap on Oxygen set in Diane & Co. This New Jersey dress shop is run by a loud and over-the-top family, the Scali’s, who call themselves Jersey’s First Family of Fashion. Mother Diane (aka ‘the Boobologist’) tries to keep her daughters Kimberly and Christina in check while they bicker like only sisters can and apply their good taste (well..good is a relative term) to help find their customers the perfect formal dress.

So does this mean what you think it means?……….. Yep! Glitter, sequins, feathers, lace and leopard print galore!

By the way, please note that doing hair and makeup will be known as ‘fluffing’ from now on. Thank you.

You can also SHOP ONLINE!!
