I am so excited to announce that A-Listed have teamed up with Cirque du Soliel’s Premier of Amaluna to give a lucky A-Lister the chance to win tickets for the whole family!

Cirque du Soleil’s most successful UK show Amaluna is coming up to Manchester from 7 September – 2 October 2016. The iconic Big Top will be making the intu Trafford Centre it’s home for a month following huge success at London’s Royal Albert Hall earlier this year.

Amaluna will leave Manchester audiences spellbound with its mesmerising aerial acrobatics and never-before-seen acts. A tale of castaway romance and the obstacles that true love presents, Amaluna was described by The Times as “thrillingly executed” the London Evening Standard as “a dazzling display of acrobatic excellence”. With jaw-dropping performances and Cirque du Soleil’s signature mind-blowing stunts it’s sure to stun when the show comes to Manchester’s intu Trafford Centre this September.

A-Listed has tickets for a family of four (two adults and two children) to attend the glitzy premiere on 7 September 2016 to giveaway to readers. To enter, simply sign up to my Instagram page and I will be picking the winner on August 10th!  Good luck!

 

Get nude

 

Unnamed

Sports fashion brand Bjrn Borg introduces the Skin Collection; skin toned underwear for everyone. The collection is deliberately launched on the United Nations Racial Discrimination Day, as a tribute to human rights and equality for all.

So-called nude underwear traditionally only caters to white skinned individuals, offered in tones like beige or blush, despite the fact that an 84% majority of the worlds population has a skin tone other than the standard nude colour. To put the light on this inequality, Bjrn Borg introduces the Skin Collection an underwear line in six shades of human, following the Fitzpatrick skin scale*.

Nude is not a colour; its a concept that everybody should have the right to enjoy. We call it six shades of human and the reason to our launch on the UN Racial Discrimination Day is that the political climate in Europe has been very tough as of late and it is time to show colour. This is our contribution to that debate, comments Bjrn Borg Marketing Director, Jonas Lindberg Nyvang.

The skin collection comes in a hotpant for her and short shorts for him and is made from a fresh microfibre material to maintain high breathability and comfortable fit.

The collection retails at 32.95 through selected retail and through the Bjrn Borg web shop,www.bjornborg.com

The Fitzpatrick skin scale is a numerical classification schema for human skin color. It was developed in 1975 by Thomas B. Fitzpatrick, a Harvard dermatologist, as a way to classify the typical response of different types of skin to ultraviolet (UV) light. There are six levels in the Fitzpatrick scale, ranging from Type I (which is very light, always burns in direct sunlight and never tans), to type VI (which is deeply pigmented dark brown or black and never burns). 

Human skin pigmentation evolved primarily to regulate the amount of ultraviolet radiation penetrating the skin, a fact that the so-called Fitzpatrick skin scale* rests upon. The Fitzpatrick scale is a classification on typical response of different types of skin to ultraviolet radiation and covers six major skin tones; the very same that are offered through the new Bjrn Borg skin collection.

Beth Ditto Announces Fashion Launch at Selfridges

  13_1030

Announced in December 2015 with the unveiling of a limited-edition tee designed by Beth's close friend and collaborator Jean Paul Gaultier, the much-anticipated collection launches with imagery styled by Katie Grand and shot by Ezra Petronio.

The range illustrates the diversity of Beth's fearless fashion journey, from Arkansas punk-rocker altering vintage finds, to fashion icon in her own right. Vibrant op-art prints are realised in silks and rayons, while gold lam club looks are off-set by vintage-style tea dresses and well-tailored pencil skirts.

The eleven-piece collection will be available in US sizes 10 – 24 (UK sizes 14 – 28), includes form fitting dresses, silk jumpsuits, leggings, tops and a hand-embroided, vintage-sourced denim jacket.

Prints incorporate lipstick kisses, make up palettes and electric eye prints that add a bold fashion vision frequently missing from plus-size lines.

Beth says: I wanted to make pieces to last years. Beyond trends, beyond chain stores. I wanted to create something all its own, something just for us, made with love and consideration. Made ethically in the USA as a small company with no big corporate input. Uncompromising, unapologetic, and timeless. Go-to pieces designed to last. A movement by us, for us."

Launching globally on 15 February on BethDitto.com and with Selfridges in the UK, the collection celebrates beauty at any size.
