Fashion

Tickets for Fashion Wank have gone out, and there has been much gnashing of porcelain crowns from those whose letter-boxes have remained resolutely empty. But not me. My teeth are au naturel. Also, I never expect invites to anything anymore – I have made far too many enemies to get invited to the good stuff, and have far too much pride to go anywhere that does stoop to invite me. "One gets what one deserves," as Mother would say, the frightful cow.

Mrs N was parading the contents of her goodie bag, and mentioned that she had an extra ticket. I perked up. Trelise has really picked up her game lately; no more lurid circus tents with mutton-leg sleeves – last season she made some things I would actually wear (and do). But no – she is taking her husband. This is quite unfair. His suits are shiny with age and he probably thinks Costume National is what the Maoris wear.

Still – one must be gracious. I understand room is limited, what with all the space the front-row will need for their walker-frames and colostomy bags.

Online, one can find out what one will be missing. Nom D is using loads of black (Quelle surprise!), and Deborah Sweeney is channelling ZZ Top (large ginger beards on all models, I assume).

Meanwhile, State of Grace has been stirred by Hitchcock’s ‘The Birds’ (bloodied eye-sockets are to be the Next Big Thing), and Karen Walker has been inspired by racing jockey attire and maternity wear – so expect lurid circus tents with capped sleeves.

"Deborah Sweeney is channelling ZZ Top"

Will there be a plethora of pearl necklaces as well?

Oooh Trelise Cooper has picked up lately...she was a bit too frilly for a while, but her fabrics and colours now are bliss.

Was looking at the sea of black, white and beige that was the new summer stock in a high end store here and then suddenly colour, and it was all Trelise.

Oh please someone find me a rich lesbian to keep me in the style I want....... or just by me the little Trelise dress with the sequined hearts on it.

I never used to like Trelise's stuff. That is until this post prompted me to look up her latest collection online.

Wow, There are actually a few items I might wear - particularly in the little black dress re-invention space. I particularly like the mezzo pleat dress.

Maybe I should put that on my wedding gift registry :D

Boo, Anonymous, poor effort.

UnPC, Miss Seph - definitely worth checking out her latest collections. Stuff from last (winter) season was good, too. I have loads of her tops now - but her trousers are still a bit mad for my liking. Haven't seen the sequin-heart dress...

"Boo, Anonymous, poor effort."

Yeah. Don't be discouraging any potential pic posts, moron.
