Upcoming Designers Style the Olympic Opening Ceremony
The Opening Ceremony of London 2012 Olympic games went off in STYLE on Friday Night! It brought together representatives from all of London’s creative industries including fashion. Upcoming brands of East London, Christopher Shannon, Michael Van Der Ham and Nasir Mazhar dressed 350 of the 1,200 entertainers who danced away to the compilation of famous British hits.
Surrirat Larlab, creative director of the Opening Ceremony who worked in tandem with Danny Boyle explains “We wanted to choose young designers who work and live in the East End for the opening ceremony and who create innovative and cutting edge new ideas. It has been an incredible experience working with this fresh new talent, all of whom have dedicated themselves heart and soul to this project.”
Cheryl Cole has released her new video for the song “Under The Sun,” It has been directed by Anthony Mandler, who also directed the video for Cheryl‘s song “Call My Name.”
The video features a contemporary take on sixties fashion statements, the most striking of which is a yellow bra peeking out from her bolero (a short tailored jacket). The bolero-bra combination is paired with a coral-coloured pencil skirt… and the whole effect is one that reveals a saucy bit more than you’d expect for a 1960s ensemble.
