Camilla Skovgaard – Accessory Designer of the Year

Camilla Skovgaard has been announced as the Accessory Designer of the Year at the Danish Fashion Awards. The award was created in 2008 by jewellery designer Georg Jensen. Skovgaard was born in Denmark and of her connection with it said: “As much as I am British educated and my business is established in London, in certain ways the Camilla Skovgaard shoe business does have a Danish heart – we operate on a Denmark bank and the team in London office sit on Arne Jacobsen chairs and table lamps from Louis Poulsen.”

Some Sunday Editorial Inspiration…

My Sunday inspiration came in the form of a glamorous sun-filled editorial for Vogue Italia ‘Summer Glam’.

Aussie ‘Plus Size’ Model Covers Vogue Italia
& Elle France

Australian ‘plus size’ model, Robyn Lawley, has landed the cover Vogue Italia’s June 2011 issue. The 21year old also covers French Elle’s latest Spécial Rondes ‘Body Issue’ .  (both covers pictured above)

This is the first time plus-size models have graced the cover of Vogue Italia since Sophie Dahl in 2000. Lawley was shot by renowned photographer Steven Meisel for the cover, which she shares with Tara Lynn and Candice Huffine. Vogue Italia Editor, Franca Sozzani, has dedicated a section of the magazine to curvier models, saying: “Why should these women slim down? Many of the women who have a few extra kilos are especially beautiful and also more feminine.”

For Elle France, Lawley appears on the cover and also a 10-page editorial inside the magazine.

Lawley is an Australian size 14 and looks exquisitely beautiful on both covers…

Jessica Simpson Tween Line

The Jessica Simpson tween line will feature: shoes, outerwear, sportswear, activewear and jeans. Her younger sister, Ashlee Simpson, will also come on board as co-creative director. Of the new area of her brand, Jessica Simpson has said:

“Creating a tween apparel collection was a natural extension for the brand. I’m excited to bring my sister, Ashlee, along as co-creative director of this division, because she brings a savvy rocker edge that defines today’s tweens.”

A Chanel Bag Made Entirely Of Beef Jerky?

That is exactly what Nancy Wu, Art Center College of Design student, has created (pictured right)! Formed by hand-stitched sheets of dried meat, the bag also features the gold-chain handle and interlocking CC logo synonymous with the classic 2.55 Chanel handbag. Nancy also created a Louis Vuitton beef jerky wallet in her collection.

Very clever… but I think I will hold out for original!
