Ahoy there, JCDC and Brittany!

There is something amazingly magnificent about these incredibly simple, contrasting vertical lines that anyone and everyone seems to be adorning their upper bodies with, whether it be dresses, jumpers, t-shirts, cardigans or blazers – the Breton stripe is determined to make this season the stripiest one ever.  What is so fascinating about the Breton stripe is its inconspicuous and understated minimalism that has the power to do something very unique for each individual, with complete and utter clarity.

The Drury’s IN!As one of the fashion industry’s brightest young talents, Katerina Drury’s already wowing the industry bigwigs. ‘I was so shocked when I won it took a week to sink in. It’s very nice to be the winner and has made me lots more confident in all my work and studies.’ Katerina Drury is reflecting on having recently won the Fashion Awards Direct competition that took place during London’s Fashion Week this year. She was shortlisted from one hundred and thirty young designers alongside twenty two other entrants. Eventually twenty two became one and Katerina, despite being only eighteen years old claimed the top accolade on the runway in front of fashion VIPs from Harrods, ASOS and Grazia.

Needless to say it was Katerina’s design for the competition...
