Mirrored Metal Work Makes For Eye-Catching Fashion From Kingston University A Kingston University fashion designer has been highly commended for her metallic-themed womenswear collection which includes a glimmering dress made of 2,000 plumbing copper brackets. e shimmering dress was one of six looks created by 22 year old Sadie Clay‐ ton from Mirfield in West Yorkshire. Her voluminous metal sculptures, intricately detailed dresses and towering faux fur wing-shaped coat caught the attention of judges at Graduate Fashion Week and saw her named a runner-up in the Lon‐ don showcase's award for innovation. Sadie, who works at Rellik Vintage in Portobello Road and is the creative fash‐ ion producer for e Mark Magazine, said the judges' praise for her portfolio and presentation was still ringing in her

e Grace Jones-style silhouettes were topped with five sweeping avante-garde head pieces developed in collaboration with London-based milliner Niamh Flanagan. "I showed her my research and sketches and I was so excited when she said she felt, with her contemporary take on vintage style, we could work together to create something to match my unusu‐ al choice of materials." e monochrome print and cut out shapes were prompted by Sadie's re‐ search in to the shapes of furniture. "I manipulated the image of a chair and de‐ veloped it in to a print which I trans‐ ferred on to thin canvas," Sadie ex‐ plained. "e cut outs in the underwear, trousers and jumpsuit were all an inter‐ pretation of a piece of furniture from the 1970s, while the faux fur wings idea came from a table I saw at the V&A in London." e inspiration for her sculp‐ tures stems from the shapes of lovers' bodies in Japanese art. "I added tabs and slits to the pieces so that when I pinned them all together they would intertwine like limbs and allow me to sculpt the look I wanted." A self-confessed fan of the 1980s, Sadie stepped out at Graduate Fashion Week in a vintage green metallic suit from the era famed for its fashion statements. "Working in a vintage shop, I get to im‐ merse myself in all the decades of fash‐ ion gone by that have influenced collec‐ tions today," she said. "From shoulder pads to platforms, I just love playing with shape and scale in my own style too."

Greying is inevitable but with stars like Helen Mirren and Judi Dench proving that it's all white now, being grey has never been more chic - so why not em‐ brace your grey? As no two clients are the same, the 50 Shades of Grey Colour Experts at Brooks + Brooks work to enhance and improve every client's look on an individual basis, sometimes blending away grey, some‐ times augmenting it, sometimes even increasing it.

Place the wes of hair behind your ears.

Using your fingers or a wide-tooth comb pull approx ¼ of your hair over the top of the extension, sandwich the Effortless Extension between your hair with ¼ on top of the extension and ¾ under the ex‐ tension to blend and hide the monofila‐ ment.

Effortless Extensions are £74.95 and are available at www.effortlessextensions.co.uk.

Whichever, we always make the look

Close, the UK’s premier so carrying brand partner with NCT to launch Cabo Close is thrilled to reveal the fruits of its latest project; a collaboration with NCT the UK's largest charity for parents. e newest member of the Caboo family, Caboo NCT is the result of Close and NCT working together, inspired by the shared desire to make easy, intuitive, so carrying accessible to every new parent. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Close and NCT set about designing a 'light' version of Close’s tried and trusted Caboo carrier, well-loved for its atten‐ tion to baby's comfort and posture. e end result…Caboo NCT, is still 100% Caboo, with all the same closeness and ease. e partnership has created a flexible, functional carrier that embraces the wants and needs of new parents of‐ fering them an affordable way to nurture and care for their baby with all the free‐ dom of being hands free.

says, “We are thrilled to be working with NCT to bring the Caboo NCT to market. We have used some new mod‐ ern materials and a flexible ‘light’ design that provides a lighter cooler carrying experience and with an RRP of just £44.99, it makes choosing to carry that bit easier on the pocket which definitely makes Close common sense! “ CEO of NCT Belinda Phipps says “Working with Close on this project has been a very positive experience for NCT and has enabled us both to make the best use of our expertise. What we have pro‐ duced is a good quality, easy to use and practical carrier which we hope will en‐ courage more parents to try one out. Us‐ ing a carrier can be an effective way to bond with your child during your first 1,000 days of parenting. It is also a prac‐ tical way to get on with your day to day tasks while keeping your baby close and happy.”

e Chelsea Gardener has expanded their offering of specialist planters offer‐ ing unique ideas for inside the home as well as outside. Working with dedicated European studios, materials such as met‐ al, mother of pearl, terracotta, clay and ceramic are used to create interesting forms adding to the natural beauty of any plant display. Indoor planters created using liquid clay with a metallic glaze create a statement. e liquid clay is poured into a 3-D mould creating a hollow structure with a fine surface finish. is is then fired at 1000 ̊ C. e metallic glazes are then hand applied before the pot is fired at 1200 ̊C. e glaze contains actual metal - silver or copper - which fuses with the ceramic at this high temperature. Once the kiln reaches peak temperature, com‐ bustible material is added to the cham‐ ber which causes oxidisation and there‐ fore creates a unique finish on every piece.
