If The Shoe Fits

If I were Cinderella, the question would not have been does the glass slipper fit, but should it be the MiuMiu platform or the Chanel clog?

Cry Wolf

After my disappointment at Peter the Wild Boy's taxidermy heavy nest, I saught solace in Katie Eary's AW 2010 collection. Those shaggy furs and ear topped hats are much more suited to the squeamish wolf boy fan.

Fashionably Curious has been 'Enchanted'.

The Fashionably Curious team has had a very productive day: we’ve been assisting the curators from Kensington Palace to facilitate the final developments of their upcoming Enchanted exhibition, which is due to open on the 26th March.  We spent most of the day carrying out random errands from shopping, searching for tyres (random) and testing display methods- it was a tiring day, but it was a great relief to finally get away from dissertation and group project work for once! Anyways, below is a sneak preview from the exhibition in the making, enjoy.
 A set design piece of a tree. It's made from miscellaneous pipes, taps and lamps, with bits of tyre.  Very Tim Burton!

This was my favorite room, it reminds me of Cinderella. 
This dress was once worn by Princess Margaret.
and this dress was previously worn by Princess Diana.
Peter, the Wildboy's nest.
Another favorite room, It really is beautiful.

Hello, Hello

Why G.G. don't you look so very fashionably curious working your custom Fred Butler in the 'Telephone' video? It may be just short of ten minutes, but it's worth it for the fashion credits alone not to mention our very favourite Honey B.... to be continued indeed.

Alice Versus Christopher

If Alice grew up & suddenly started shortening her hemlines then I think she would be full on seduced by Christopher Kane's AW10 line for Versus. I know we're used to seeing her in blue but perhaps the vampy red number could add a twist to the old tale.
Matching dresses for the preview anyone?

If I was to be Evil...

I would want to go really, really Evil. Not Evil like Ursula in the Little Mermaid, who is only misunderstood and all she wants is to be pretty and loved by a prince, or Evil like the Stepmother in Cinderella who really just wants the best for her daughters.. I would want to go so Evil I would turn an entire world into ice and snow.. Or so Evil I could be a Givenchy muse?

Alice in 1903

'The first-ever film version of Lewis Carroll's tale has recently been restored by the BFI National Archive from severely damaged materials. Made just 37 years after Lewis Carroll wrote his novel and eight years after the birth of cinema, the adaptation was directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow, and was based on Sir John Tenniel's original illustrations. In an act that was to echo more than 100 years later, Hepworth cast his wife as the Red Queen, and he himself appears as the Frog Footman. Even the Cheshire cat is played by a family pet.

With a running time of just 12 minutes (8 of which survive), Alice in Wonderland was the longest film produced in England at that time. Film archivists have been able to restore the film's original colours for the first time in over 100 years.'

Music: 'Jill in the Box', composed and performed by Wendy Hiscocks.
