When I stumbled across these images, I was just blown away. This stunning concept car designed by South Korean university student Jinyoung Jo. The talented student blended fashion, luxury and aerodynamics to create the CHANEL Foile. I'll lets the pictures speak for themselves:

Vivienne Westwood has introduced the "Charm Collection". Basically what you do is, each season VW will reveal a new charge and all you need to do is buy it and add it to your collection. Its a great collectable item which won't go amiss! The necklace retails at £25 and the charms are £40 each. Quite a bargain if I should say so myself!

This recent MA graduate from London College of Fashion is not to be messed with. His elegant and futuristic designs have not had only me going going crazy but popstar Little Boots has been a bit gaga over Manjit.
The young newcomer collaborated with Ramesh Traderes to produce gorgeous rectangular sequins which were hand-embroidered by Glintaxoim, the same embroiders who work with the likes of Christian Dior; So thats saying something!
His luxury collection was inspired by Art Deco architecture along South Beach, Miami. His collection is totally HOT and Im sure both women and men a like will be going mad when he sets up his own label! You can tell his mind blowing outfits are just made for the body and the beautiful high-end fabric screams out luxury. Check out Little Boots below on T4's Party On The Beach in on of Manjit Deu's designs.

Science & Technology within fashion has become the new black. Chemicals, metals and Industrial finishes are all having their "fashion moment". The detailing is so fierce that Vogue China have picked up on this new trend and devoted a whole new story in their August issue.

Looks like the credit crunch has really hit Chanel hard. I could not believe my eyes when I saw these images on Perezhilton.com I was not only outraged but angry at the same time; How can Chanel do this? The new collection is not only cheap as a Hackney resident carrying a bag, but having LILY ALLEN as the face of Chanel is just utterly, utterly, UTTERLY disgusting! My piss is boiling with the thought of this low life, hideous, filthy, tarty, council estate trash is the person "selling expensive things to rich women".
Fuck right off Karl Lagerfeld.

Animal loving fashion designer, Stella McCartney, has definitely gone that extra mile to take her collection into another realm. She's juxtaposed the cute Disney character "Bambie" against her fierce new collection to down it down a bit.
Personally I think the cartoon characters are a bit naff. What do you think?

The new cover for Dazed & Confused will leap out of your hands this month; especially when its 3D.
The new cover has taken fashion into a whole new dimension with its stunning cover featuring photos taken by prominent photographer Terry Tsiolis and styling by Nicola Formichetti.

I've been going shirt mad this season and there is only one designer I've been drooling over- Tommy Hilfiger. His "quintessentially American" shirts have been uber hot this summer with a great range of colours. His "Dallas" shit (right) is probably one of the most comfortable shirts I have ever worn, better still... You can now buy it for just £32.50 instead of £65.00! A great bargain for any recessionista out there.
Style it well with a Hilfiger blazer and Hilfigers very own "Ashley" Tote bag which is only £135.00 and you're good to go!
Get your plastic out
people and purchase them now from here before they go!

This latest trend is hitting the runways of fashion hard. Sleeves have either been taken off completely or cut just above the elbow. I think this will be one trend which is going to be oh so hot for the summer.

As I was floating through style.com I couldn't help but notice the style resemblance between electro pop icon Lady Gaga and outfits on the catwalk. Its amazing how a woman in just panties can influence fashion so much, don't you think? Im not complaining though, as I've been a massive fan of her creativity and her flesh bearing knickers ever since she appeared on our television screens!
Ever since Gaga has arrived, the sales of knickers in the UK have gone up! And I love the fact that designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Chanel have been showcasing head scarfs, body suits and even dangling chains... Hmmm I wonder where I have seen that before!

I just happened to stumble across this cool online website hellodrama.net
If you love your jewellry you will love this site. Celebs all over have been going crazy over Hello Drama and I think we should too!
Im absolutely LOVING this gorgeous melted Chanel logo necklace by Hello Drama. You can purchase it online from their site here.
Olga Gromova (above) is the hottest thing to come out of Ukraine right now. She is elegant, smart and super sexy with everything going for her. Her collection is sophisticated, stylish and screams out luxury; you need to really be something to wear a Gromova Design .
My attention was brought to Olga's label, Gromova Design when I was invited to her show during Ukrainian Fashion Week in March and was completely blown away by the structure and style of her garments. The new collection is really something to look out for; with her use of gorgeous pattern prints, and I know for a fact her sexy jumpsuit won't go amiss with US buyers after Gromova Design have branched out to the US opening up her very own showroom.
The current face of her collection is the 55th Playboy Playmate, Dasha Astafieva and she's totally fierce! Check out the pictures below from a recent Gromova Design photo shoot which took place at The Ritz in Kiev with Astafieva.
