Good Charma

Pam Fink, the New York based jewellery designer, has devised a jewellery range that incorporates all her beliefs and loves.  A peripatetic traveller, after exploring Southeast Asia and Indonesia, Fink fell in love with Bali and its exuberant culture.  It was during her fourth visit that the invasion of Iraq took place, which inspired Fink to design jewellery which would exude her values of peace and love.  Coupled with inspiration from her grandmother’s exotic jewellery collection, along with her father’s superstition, Good Charma was created. With ten themes to choose from such as luck, friendship, love, protection or peace, and […]

September Issue

Perhaps, it was the fact it was their 25th anniversary, or the high quality show from fashionistas across the globe but more probable is that it was the attendance of one particular editor in chief, just in time for her film’s UK release ‘September Issue.’ Anna Wintour has been the cause of much intrigue for twenty years, a puissant pioneer of fashion, whose ruthlessness and sharp tongue has been the fodder of novels as well as inspiration for actors. Her film, ‘September Issue,’ allows us to see inside […]
