Finally the announcement we have been waiting for - the Ones To Watch.

Ones To Watch has for the past two seasons launched the careers of many emerging designers including Dean Quinn, Alice Palmer, Ada Zanditon and this season merit award winner Hermione de Paula.

Ones To Watch has already had coverage in all the right places including FTape, Vogue and Grazia even saying that they "absolutely blimmin’ love Vauxhall Fashion Scout... We can’t wait to go along to the show and try our hand at identifying future Alexander McQueens!" I don’t know about you but neither can I. See you there.

Fashion Scout chills with Mr Hudson and Paloma Faith at Vauxhall Ice Skate

Paloma Faith and Mr Hudson hit the decks

Sugar and spice and all things ICE. Last night the Fashion Scout team spent an enchanted evening in North London’s P3 venue hosted by Vauxhall. Snow covered surfaces, a shadowy forest and moon lit ice skating rink, all completed with Russian vodka and a gingerbread car.

Following on from their successful roller disco event last season and being a free invite only event, the tickets were quickly snapped up, even before the confirmation of guest DJ’s Paloma Faith, Coco Sumner, George Lamb and Mr Hudson.

All in all a night to remember, well done Vauxhall, for the first time since Christmas the winter wonderland lifted my January blues.

Tempest at The Enchanted Palace...

Lovers of all things beautiful and whimsical may rejoice as, from the 26th March 2010, the rooms of Kensington Palace will be temporarily transformed into The Enchanted Palace for a show-stopping, eyes-on-stalks, multisensory exhibition, and our very own William Tempest will be taking part. 

Accompanied by legends like Vivienne Westwood, Stephen Jones, Boudicca and Aminaka Wilmont, Will’s in good company for this extraordinary exhibition-come-art installation.  Brought to you by the theatre company Wildworks, the event will use the Palace’s sordid and juicy history as inspiration for interactive theatre, film projections and stunning fashion installations (Aminaka Wilmont has created a ‘dress of tears’ for one room). 

Tempest, inspired by the young Queen Victoria’s sudden new-found freedom and independence, will create an avant-garde, period dress packed with optical illusion as it appears to vanish and merge into its surroundings, before your very eyes!  It all sounds very Mad Hatter to us, and we can’t wait!
