After much influence from Vogue in the past 10 years, i have come to decide upon myself that it speaks utter rubbish. Not only do Floral prints and ‘Big Patterns’ always make the cut, every season, but the same designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Alexander Mqueen and Luella always seem to recycle what they sold to us 3 years ago and we still buy. Their influences? Summer days, Goth, Victorianism and giant Floral fields seem to muster under their breaths.
I have noticed an exceptional decline in forgein fashion, mainly from those who seem to have congered up chic, kooky and kitch ways of means, Beijing has explored fashion in more ways than the socialites of Fashion in LA, UK and Milan. The influences from technology, religion, spiritualism . As a city, it used to be known to squash all individuality. Morphing faqshion designers and stores into minimalistic arrays of cloth. The government has relished in the thought of making more money, and Gucci, Prada and Armani have openned stores across the city, casuing a stir in the fashion industry. Now westernised clothing is available, do the same influences exisit?
DU Juan, a model from Bejing has been modelling for 4 years and has never been so excited at the thoughtof Gucci using Beijing as influence. Temples, food and scents are used to create an ever expanding brand for China, Japan and the Phillipenes.
Can a country really have its own individuality?

Ok So i have decided to take a trip to wordpress.com and fill in another facination of mine. I have been an advid fan of magculture.com for a couple of months now. I have always been interested in the magazine world, how publishing works and what features are out their. I have done work experience at Health Plus magazines, which sadly folded in 2007, Portsmouth News where i became Entertainments Editor for a week, and Slimming World where i worked as an assistant features writer.
This is a space dedicated to all things MAGAZINES. I will post articles i have written, including poetry and news and reviews of unusal and tempting new magazines.
