Impressed by what I saw at the orientation day of Polimoda school of Fashion, Florence, last week, I decided it would be worth attending the final presentations of students graduating with Masters degree's in Trend Forecasting. With high expectations, I was still surprised with the quality of work produced by the students, who hail from all corners of the globe. Over 4 hours we saw bodies of work that varied far beyond the limits of contemporary fashion, venturing from the culinary kitchen to outer space, from physical body manipulation to questions of our souls. It was clear that an education at Polimoda could add another dimension to my skill set, and if all the chips fall right, I'm convinced to attend there in the new year.
Fixed by each individuals take on Trend Forecasting, I managed to capture only the few images you see below.

The presentation by the this student was striking and confronting, with a naked woman painted white, while moving images projected onto her body and screen. The final frame (not seen) outlined a silhouette of a modern asymmetric dress, the pattern almost lace like - very clever use of technology
This student presented a supersized image of Florence and asked the teachers/audience to write what they wish the city was (the image is not very clear, so I added the text of examples of what people wrote - mine was Cleaner & more Open)

My girls at Splendour in the Grass. The Mini Splendour area was crazy fun. GLOTATTS sponsored the event so that all the little celebrity kidless got their sparkle with tattoos and glitter. Overall what a perfect last day to a hugely successful festival!


The 18th annual Splendour in the Grass Music and Arts Festival kicked off during the coldest week of winter. But that didn't stop the fever of fun and fashion expression for festival revellers. This year was the first year we were not officially working on site for GLOTATTS (we worked tirelessly leading up at pre festival parties and events) We continued sponsorship with little glitter & tattoo stations set up throughout - most notably at Little Splendour - a festival within the festival specifically for our young ones - which my girls enjoyed tremendously! DAY I looks were provided by the wonderful HER PONY THE LABEL team. Day II outfits were from the new Spell & the Gypsy Collective range. By Day III we were footloose and fancy free, opting to highlight our GLOTATTS sparkles with threads of our own choosing. I wore a gorgeous burnt ochre linen dress by Brazilian Flirting
