What's Your Style? Style-is.co.uk Visits London Fashion Week

A few weeks ago Style-is.co.uk visited London Fashion Week to ask the question, What's Your Style? The result was this video which we hope will provoke though about what fashion really means and what your style says about you. Do you really need to follow trends or would you look and feel better developing your own individual style?

Innovation through Social Media for Ethical Fashion Brands #SourceSummit



I was really pleased to be invited to speak on the Innovation Masterclass at the Ethical  Fashion Forum Source Summit 2013 last Friday. The Ethical Fashion Forum Source Summit has grown and developed in a big way since last year and was packed with over 250 business leaders and innovators with an interest in ethical fashion from around the world.

Ethical Fashion Forum Source summit featured some fantastic speakers including Baroness Lola Young OBE founder of the All Party Parlimentary Group on ethics and sustainability in fashion and Dolly Jones, Editor of Vogue.com. The theme of accelerating momentum for sustainability in the fashion industry was delivered through a range of speeches, panels, forums and masterclasses addressing a range of issues from sourcing to education, marketing and retail. You can view the videos of the sessions which were live streamed here.

We  started the day with a breathtaking cable car ride across the Thames delivering us to our venue, The Crystal, one of the worlds most sustainable buildings. The event was filled with so much energy and enthusiasm and it was a real pleasure to meet and hear from so many truly inspiring and innovative people.

Innovation Masterclass - Social Media

My talk was part of the innovation masterclass and was about innovation through social media, digital and mobile technology. It was such a packed day and there was so much more I would love to have shared so I have tried to condense part of my talk into a infographic, which I hope that you will find useful. If so please share with anyone who you think will be interested through Facebook, Twitter, blogs and Pinterest. I will be following up with some further posts soon.
