We explore what’s on trend from dreamy dresses to vibrant beachwear, as well as provide updates from the beauty industry – from bright colours to cosmetic enhancements. We interview designer Bianca Astle about her latest Ivy Blu collection, stylish lifestyle and incredible collection of Stuart Weitzman boots. Then, take you back in time to follow the rise of the high heel from its humble beginnings as a men’s accessory to its status as a high fashion commodity. For an update on hair styles, we talk to Alex Wirz-Dunbar, owner of Victoria Street’s newest salon Chère Chérie. Her amazing international career is impressive, to say the least. Where is your hemline sitting this summer? We show you some of our best summer dresses so you can see why short is so last year. For beachwear solutions, our fashion shoot highlights some of the season’s hottest trends – with a splash of metallic.
