Kate Middleton Joins the Navy

Kate Middleton and Prince William have began their Canadian tour, Kate Middleton opted for a navy Roland Mouret dress suit when she boarded the plane in England then changed on board into a lace Erdem dress, by the Canadian born British designer, a very diplomatic choice. It is possible that Kate has taken tips from Michelle Obama, who is a often praised for her diplomatic fashion choices which included wearing British designer Alexander McQueen on a recent state visit to Britain.

Omnipotent Olivia Palermo in Victoria Beckham

Olivia Palermo epitomised summer last night in a mix of zesty brights teamed with trusty animal canvas printed Charlotte Olympia pumps. Olivia manages to look better in the 'Retina' dress than Victoria herself and the original catwalk model, no mean feat.

Ensemble du Jour: Women of Wimbledon

The tennis season is set to climax in the next 2 weeks, as a tremendous fan of the game I could not be more excited for the highs and the woes of Wimbledon. Talks of tennis make me want to dust off my racket and take to the courts and have a knock around with anyone I can persuade to play with me. Getting the right outfit for tennis has become some what of an art itself. Here is what I will be wearing on the court de jour!

Jonathan Saunders is Victorious at The Scottish Fashion Awards

Samantha Cameron opted for Christopher Kane when she presented Jonathan Saunders with his second consecutive designer of the year award. Mrs Cameron had worn Jonathan Saunders during Michelle Obama's state visit last month and it was extremely well received. Mr Saunders victory surprised guests as many including Jonathan Saunders himself believed that Christopher Kane would take the award. Other winners included Henry Holland who picked up International Designer of the Year whilst Tali Lennox received model of the year award which in my opinion was very well deserved due to her grace and professionalism. The most interesting award at fashion awards shows is always Young designer of the year, the honour that this year was bestowed on Henrietta Ludgate, a designer that deserves her growing attention. Ms Ludgate focusses on luxury Scottish textiles whilst utilising the finest British materials combined with divine Scottish craftsmanship.

I have become very interested in the recent wave of Scottish houses reinvention, the most profound being Pringle of Scotland who I hope will soon receive an Award due to it's immense heritage combined with a rare high fashion twist. Not to mention the arrival of Ex creative director of Balmain taking the design helm, there is only good things to come for Pringle of Scotland.
