I have to say I love this swimsuit by Herve Leger. OK it’s not my favorite colour choice and I’d move the lines a little, but this is a very clever garment. I’m saddened to see so many negative comments about it on so many fashion blogs so I’m going to give it my personal . . . → Read More: Swimsuit of the Week
Hi everyone … I’m back from my 9.5 week journey of Asia … I saw Thailand, Laos, Burma and China … and I’m going back as soon as possible. I’ve been well and truely charmed by all things oriental … without doubt my favourite is Thailand. Anyhow, to keep things going along here I . . . → Read More: Swimsuit of the Week?

I get asked about garment copyright every single day. Really … every single day … and my advice is usually to go and do an intellectual property course.
