Art or Fashion?

Couture fashion is the most expensive fashion in the fashion industry. Its a small select group that use the finest materials and skills, but with its flamboyant style, extreme price tags is Couture fashion better placed in the art world?

The designs are over the top but no-one can deny how beautiful and inspiring they are. Givenchy pushes the barriers of Haute Couture by designing body jewellery, that not only any rocker would be proud to wear, but is 100% stunning! We love the Givenchy collection especially. At the end of the day Couture fashion pieces are, in their own right, art, but they also have the place in fashion, firmly at the top. Its brings us joy just looking at beautiful pictures of it, imagine what we would be like if we could wear it!

All wrapped up!

As a final fair well to Christmas 2011 we have collected together some fine art images by Christ and Jeanne-Claude who “Wrap up” objects, and were not talking about a book. This is “wrapping gone supersized!

Christmas List for the Rich and …… the rest of us.

So Christmas is only 19 days away!! So it time to get shopping here is Fashion Mould’s Christmas Wish List.

1 Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue by Grace Coddington. Slightly out of our price range at £1,247 this why its on or wish list. A Beautiful Coffee Table book that shows off the best of Grace’s work with Vogue. We could spend hours just looking into the dream world that Grace has created for us.

2. A dream bag that is not only just made in England buy a British Brand but is a staple for a British Girl. The Bayswater bag is £2000 so that’s why its on our dream list. It is a classic though …….
3. A beautiful jewelry designer Aurlie Bidermann, chunky, raw and beautiful. Its a shame that its £750.
4 Beautiful shoes by Prada, the platform sandal is  the prefect shoe which takes you from day to night! casual and dressy. Perfect just perfect! Just £700 though…. not so perfect

5. Last but not least a Hermes Belt, to hold up your designer threads! A snip at £450!

And then the Christmas list for the rest of us.

1. Fun Fur Coat- Warm, Furry and affordable for everyone, prices vary massively but the one I am getting for Christmas cost £30 from my local charity shop that has a Vintage section. Amazing

2. A fabulous watch found on ASOS Marketplace, its cool, funky and really different. We just love the attention to detail the animal print element to the watch, which is finished of beautifully with a leather strap. Amazingly its only £3!!!! I’m getting mine now!

3. LUSH!! Love the products, and their ethos! They do some amazing Christmas Gifts for every price range. Check out their website www.lush.co.uk/our-values. The Christmas gift box that we would love is “Out of The World” and its only £5.95! Bargain.


4. Magazine Subscriptions, you can get most magazines on subscriptions these days, they are great presents that literally last all year round. They are also great value for money starting from £12.50 for 6 months. We love it!

5. Tights! Love them so many different styles to suit whatever mood your in. Really quick and cheap way to jazz up any outfit! We love these pretty Pattern Sheer Tights from ASOS and there only £8!

Happy Christmas and happy shopping!

Style Q&A

With an overwhelming amount of responses to our tweet last week, about any styling dilemmas and question you might have, we have selected the 2 most frequently asked questions. 


So this week we were asked “Smart Casual….. What does that mean!” 
This is a term that I particular hate! its almost a double negative! It basically mean relaxed smarter wear, so I see that as denim!.


The next question was “I love fun fur but I don’t know how to wear it?” 
Wear it as a coat, Gillet (or as my boyfriend likes to say waistcoat!), scarf or even on boots. Fun Fur also goes great with Leather so layer it up, it is Winter after all!

If you have a style Q&A for next week tweet us @fashionmould or email fashionmould@gmail.com!

This weeks must have……. Sequin Trousers!!!!!

Now sequin trousers might not spring straight to mind when deciding what to buy, but we adore them! They look great for a night out, down the pub, with killer heels and cute flats. The carrot shape style above is flattering for slim and curvy figures. Sequins go surprising well with a military style detailing, block colours and knitwear, we have layered knitwear to give a more edgy look. Don’t be afraid of sequins there fun and if your really daring go head to toe in sequins!
