And it has clearly been an exceptional year, with the intake final count at 31, as opposed to the more typical 20 of previous years. The change is attributed to the current President Diane von Furstenburg who has made inclusiveness her priority in her two years at the top.

My Sole

I love my new soles. Oh I do adore a new pair of shoes but  I am normally drawn to those glamorous over priced, shockingly high, unbelievably painful party shoes that sit beautifully in my wardrobe and are rarely worn. But this week my heart was stolen. I have fallen deeply in love with a a pair of shoes called Martha. And they are glamorous but not over priced, shockingly flat as they’re pumps and unbelievably comfortable. But best of all they are  perfect for any party. There is a reason these are perfect shoes and thats because a great deal […]

Founded in 1987, the French couturier is now US-owned under the Falic Group, who bought it from LVMH in 2005. Since then, however, the Group have been trying to sell a stake in the company, but have been unable to find a willing buyer.
