This is Colin Mcdowells view of the modern fashion industry, as the designers can only serve in the societies they are in, and when the U.K is dictated by the highstreet and all the cheaper copies, are we not getting quality, or are we just getting the modern equilvent of quality just at an affordable univerisally available price?
Topshop he regards as a brilliant phenomenon, but bad for fashion as they only give us cheaper copies of the real thing! As Topshop isn't leading fashion as their not even looking for it just copying it! As vulgarity sells this is their philosophy in Colin's view.
This also is a perfect example of the Young fashion everywhere, every shop on the high street caters for the young and what about whats appropriate and comfortable for the older customer, as isn't this where the money lies?
Are we going to come out of the era of throw away fashion and cheap copies or is this our future?
The fabulous designs are out their apparently for both men and women but will they sell are they commercial are they fashion forward?
Are high street chain stores the problem, bargains always to be had?
Colin Mcdowell predicts we will come out of this bad time of fashion in his view as we will need to look for survival in these harsh times and thats when the fashion design industry will flourish!
What are your views do you agree with Colin Mcdowell? Do you have an issue with the high street stores?
I have actually used their creations as a huge inspiration for my current Digital Design project, which is all about geometric print mini dresses.
Spring/ Summer 2009
From these past collections I think they have more than made up for the outrageously scary Spring/ Summer 2006 Collection, their first collection was loud bold and over the top but you could give them the benefit of the doubt as it was their debut they had to make a dramatic entrance, the following collections are far more sophiscated and wearable but still loud enough to make a statement.
I absolutely love bright bold colours and prints and in this post I am broadcasting my appreciation of the designers Basso and Brooke (above).
Their quirky bright geometric prints are sophisticated and classy but still fun and youthful and are my favourite designers at the moment because of this.

Whether he's dressing up or dressing down
His look suits his cheeky personality making him both appealing to men and women alike.
His look is individual and quirky but he still manages to link to the everyday man
