Make poverty history, Ladybrille– and Lucire-style

September 19, 2007/12.22

[Cross-posted] I was honoured to be interviewed by Uduak Oduok, lawyer, fashion model and journalist, for Ladybrille. Lucire readers may remember Uduak as the writer of a piece in an earlier issue on a fashion show in Nigeria, and I was honoured to be her subject this time.    Years ago, I was inspired by […]

Glimpse from Bryant Park

/10.24

It was wonderful to see candid shots from New York Fashion Week, rather than the pro stuff (which I must take my hat off to Mr Stephen Ciuccoli for shooting for us). This is a wee pic of one of the Bryant Park tents, taken by Lucire associate publisher Ann Fryer. More in issue 25 […]

Dame Anita Roddick, DBE: leadership is about humanity

September 11, 2007/13.51

I cannot be sure whether, if Dame Anita Roddick had not lived, Lucire would have taken the ethical, socially responsible route. It’s not so much that we don’t believe in corporate social responsibility (CSR). However, would we have had the courage to have become the United Nations Environment Programme’s ?rst fashion industry partner in 2003? […]

I know this is a well known fact in fashion circles, but I quite liked the expression: A former design tutor of mine, Arti Sandhu, now at Columbia College’s fashion department in Chicago, Ill., recently explained a theory of hers, calling fashion magazines ‘female porn for gay males.’ It says a lot of the politics […]

Does alcohol in goody bags sound like a good idea to anyone else?

September 7, 2007/11.48

When I turned up to Walk on Earth, I must admit I had certain preconceptions. Certain questions, if you like, that I wanted answered. For example, who has been in charge of naming the event? Walk on Earth—were they serious? Maybe literalism is the new metaphor.    One of the opening sentiments was that it was […]
