My favourite item for this season, is my Topshop Faux Fur Gilet I cant take it off! And for £55 its well worth the money!
You can wear it with just about anything, I find it works well with a blazer or leather jacket.

MY TROUSERS SO FAR...
One of our tasks at College, is to design and manufacture a pair of innovative trousers that we will wear at Somerset House, London.
Here is my final design that I choose on the left, inspired by shirt collar as is reflected on the waist, and cuffs as on the trousers.
I have now begun to toile, and pattern for my trousers.
I had to adapt the pattern to fit me, to do this I took 5cm from the bottom of the trousers, and took 2cm of each side of the centre from and back. I also added 4cm to the top of my pattern, as I want the trousers to be high waisted and sit on the hip.
“I decided I didn’t want to make a living from the people suffering
at the bottom of the supply chain”
Hamnett is well known as
a campaign for human rights and a political activist, using fashion and her
launch of slogan t-shirts to express.
In 1989 Hamnett commissioned research on the environmental impact of the
textile and clothing industry, which unearthed some appalling fact about deaths
from contaminated water supplies, deaths from pesticides and poor working
conditions in factories. This research ultimately made her pull out of the
system and decided instead to go back to manufacturing in order to source and
produce an environmentally friendly collection.
Hamnett worked directly with cotton produces, fabric weavers and garment
manufactures, where she sourced organically grown cotton, trimmings and threads
which enabled her to deal with all aspects of manufacture.
In 2006 Hamnett launched her online men’s and women’s
wear collection under the label Katherine E Hamnett, E representing ethically
and environmentally sound. The collection showcased both a wearable and durable
Hamnett’s aim is to design clothes, which will be both long lasting and well
made using high quality materials.
One of Hamnett’s most
significant impacts was her collaboration with Tesco. She persuaded them to buy
the cotton size months ahead of season and cut out wholesalers and agents.
Hamnett during this project worked directly with fabric suppliers, this enabled
her to produce fabrics such as a blend of organic cotton with 4% recycled
polyester, this allows the fabric to be permanently pleated.
This is a campaign where Hamnett teamed up with online
retailer Yooxygen to create statement “Save the Sea” 14 piece collection,
combining one-piece swimsuits, bikini’s, cover-ups and beach totes.
collection was made from sustainable fabrics, such as organic cotton, silk and
recycled polyester. The garments where eco conscious however, still embraced
1950’s style silhouettes, and therefore didn’t loose there aesthetic qualities
despite being organic.
