I have recently discovered the work of Hiroshi Tanabe a Japanese illustrator and think his work is incredible beautiful and fresh. With fantastic colours, a mix of Japanese and vintage style and modern techniques, i have not seen illustrations like them before. I am about to start a new brief in collage and have decided to look at the Japanese cartoon film Spirited away, with this i wanted to look into Japanese culture and art so i will defiantly be using Tanabes work as a reference.

Tom Ford made the controversial choice to not allow his s/s womanswear collection to be posted on the internet unlike most other designers. I do not believe this was a good decision as it makes fashion elitist and is a stroppy stance against the fast moving pace of current technology in fashion. He has now released a video of his collection and it is hard to deny the spectacular beauty in the in the intimate show. Models looked amazing in his glamorous rich pieces especially Karen Elson whose song also played as the soundtrack. Despite initially shunning publicity he is now reaping in the rewards of holding out, helped out by Beyonce closing the show.
I had previously blogged about the new Topshop lookbook but it seems to have vanished so i am doing it again. Absolutley loved the whole campaigne with the bright colours and cloashing prints.
