David Bowie Is in Bologna ūüáģūüáĻ

By August 8, 2016 DIY & Lifestyle

Towards the end of last week, I was off on another trip in Italy, this time to Bologna (as well as San Marino) to visit the David Bowie Is exhibition. As soon as the tickets went on sale, we purchased them knowing that it was the last time the show was being held in Europe. I came out feeling so inspired and even more in admiration for Bowie and his work, and seeing as I can still intertwine the whole experience with fashion, I decided to write down some of my thoughts after visiting…

David Bowie Is MAMbo Bologna V&A Exhibition Review


location

¬† LOCATION: MAMbo Bologna, IT ¬†ūüáģūüáĻ


Okay let’s first of all start with the above pictures – I’ve already posted them on Twitter and Instagram and basically everywhere (including Tumblr) because they are just so magical. Shoutout to my brother for capturing such an epically timed set of photos of myself crossing the road to the MAMbo, just as a guy on his motorbike passed wearing a¬†black star¬†helmet. He wasn’t visiting the exhibition either just FYI – he drove past¬†and proved that Bowie is still using his magic even now. It’s actually pretty crazy – I mean, what are the chances that someone would be passing at that exact moment with the¬†exact¬†same star?

Speaking of the MAMbo; that’s of course where the exhibition was held. It was a fairly big exhibition, but just the right size that if you aren’t a¬†super¬†fan of Bowie, you won’t get bored or uninterested. I’m not going to say I know everything and anything about the man himself, but I’ve definitely learnt a lot over the past few years with the help of my aforementioned brother, and was of course hugely hit by Bowie’s passing in January.

The cool thing about the exhibition is that you’re given a headphone and audio set that automatically plays when you walk around. It plays a mix of music, interviews and recordings, and as soon as I heard a faint whisper of a song in the first room, I could feel my emotions coming to the surface. I never really knew how much somebody I didn’t know could effect me, but I’m still not fully recovered from the news, and I’m not sure any of us will be for a while. So really, you can probably guess what it felt like to see some of his work (whether that be costumes, lyric sheets or paintings) up close and personal, just an arms stretch away.

WHAT I WORE: DIY ‚ėÖ Jacket // Blouse (Charity Shop) // Super Crop Top (ASOS) // Printed Trousers (ASOS Africa) // Sunglasses (Topshop¬†– Old) // White Vagabond Dioons (Mastershoe)*


A lot of people only know certain parts of Bowie’s story, whether that be his life as Ziggy Stardust (only a very small part of his career), his acting career in films like Labyrinth, or even for younger generations, his latest albums like The Next Day and¬†‚ėÖ, but there’s so much more to him than all of that, and that’s what the exhibiton really brings to life. There’s a dedicated section to his time in Berlin in the 70s, which includes some of the artwork he produced as someone who has always had an interest in art; there’s a film room dedicated to more than just his role in Labryinth and The Man Who Fell To Earth and there’s the very first original letter which shows the change of his name from Davie to David Bowie…

David Bowie Is MAMbo Bologna V&A Exhibition Review

…and then of course, there’s the costumes. As an aspiring designer, you definitely won’t be surprised to hear how much time I took to look at each piece in detail. There’s an incredibly well preserved collection from most of his tours, including of course the more well known outfits and designs by Kansai¬†Yamamoto (seen above – a scan from the David Bowie Is book). Seeing the textures and three dimensionality of everything really brings to life Bowie in front of your eyes, and is worth all the odd looks of being down on my knees in front of fifty odd people to inspect¬†that¬†knitted jumpsuit in dim lighting through a mesh panel…

…the mesh panel being in one of the most incredible rooms. A 360 degree square of¬†lights and projections showing various concerts¬†including the last ever for Ziggy and a performance of Heroes. I may have been in that room for longer than most, but it was genuinely breathtaking and made my heart warm when a few people started dancing – although the legend might not be with us now, it’s a time to celebrate his influence and how he’s changed the lives of many; past, present and future.

David Bowie Is MAMbo Bologna V&A Exhibition Review

I’m not sure how many times I’ve now said this, but it truly was an incredible experience. I came away feeling truly grateful of the fact I was able to see Bowie create new music and leave behind such a powerful message. There are many reasons why he has such an inspiring story, but if you really want to learn why, you’ll have to visit the exhibition yourself. It’s worth all the travelling, all the money and all the emotions you may (and probably will) experience. Even just seeing the imagery outside the museum overwhelmed me…

AW16 Menswear Collections Review

By January 20, 2016 Fashion

I don’t usually talk about menswear, mainly because I’m more focused on the womenswear side of fashion (partly because I find it a lot more interesting and broad, but also because well… I’m a (young) woman), but for today I thought I’d do a review of the latest AW16 menswear collections that are coming from the catwalks. I know that the season for menswear is yet to finish, but I wanted to get a post up before the rest of the fashion season starts coming in.¬†(All images are via VOGUE.co.uk)

Alexander McQueen Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ ALEXANDER MCQUEEN – RATING: 7.5/10 ~

For me, reviewing menswear is slightly more difficult to do in terms of looking at the background and inspirations, perhaps because each collection is usually more simple and tailoring based, which is quite different to womenswear (even on the high street you can see examples of this – there’s a lot more variety in shape and size rather than style and colour), so I’m sorry if I’m rather subjective in this. But Alexander McQueen‘s collection was a nice balance. There’s texture, print, embroidery and applique yet it’s still a smart and sleek base of suits.

I think all over prints in a men’s collection is always interesting and I have to say, I really like how it’s been done for this season. Although the colours are monochromatic (A/W… what can you expect?), the butterflies and florals break it up slightly and add that more feminine touch without having to go that step further and add brighter shades.

Burberry Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

Burberry Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review - Bowie Tribute

~ BURBERRY РRATING: 7.5/10 ~

First of all can I just talk about the amazing tribute that model, Hayett McCarthy, gave to Bowie? She wrote his name on her hands on her own accord (as the show was on the day the sad news was announced) and opened them up at the end of the catwalk. It was simple, but it was a nice nod to how Bowie was always about breaking the boundaries and doing what you want. There was also hints of glitter splashed across the faces of all the models (Christopher Bailey said that he started with one as a small hint towards Bowie, but the whole line-up ended up with glitter covered eyes).

In terms of the actual collection, it’s a great introduction to what Burberry‘s all about. It’s a mish-mash of every different style and shape, but somehow they come together in a blend and mix that works unexpectedly well. My personal favourite aspects have got be the use of more modern textures like satin and faux-fur… it’s just that subtle nod to something more fresh and new. As 2016 is the year Burberry are housing all of their labels under one roof, it probably makes sense that this collection is almost a ‘catch-up’ selection of designs… a taster menu, if you like.

Christopher Raeburn Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ CHRISTOPHER RAEBURN РRATING: 8/10 ~

I’m always interested to see what Raeburn has up his sleeve seeing as his collections are mostly created from re-purposed fabrics (more specifically, the military variety). You’ll also know I always find it interesting when I can spot trends appearing for the upcoming seasons, and I can most definitely see some appearing within this, and other collections. It was simple safe route to be honest, but it had that slight twist to break it apart from the norm. Parkas are most definitely going to be a focus of A/W 16/17 along with sweaters with bold prints (more on that below).

I don’t have much to make note of here, but I thought I would include it because as I mentioned, Raeburn’s use of recycled materials always interests me, especially from a sustainable stand-point.

COACH Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ COACH 1941 – RATING: 7/10 ~

70s are still going strong. Late seventies, more specifically, but seventies nonetheless. Coach’s collection is full of it, but in a way of which is probably more palatable than most retro, free-living inspired collections. It’s once again a collection of simplicity, but it has enough to it that you can grab onto. One thing I like about Coach, is how¬†everything the brand does is so put together, whether that’s in terms of design, or whether that’s in terms of branding. It just always slots together effortlessly.

Even if I don’t have much to say about the collection specifically, I can say that they’re still knocking it right on the head. A key note though? – Leather jackets. Cool, simple, leather jackets… even with the addition of shearling.¬†

Gucci Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review
Gucci Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review - Bowie Tribute

~ GUCCI РRATING: 8/10 ~

For me this is basically just an Italian, Gucci-style, interpretation of the seventies. Mix prints, embroidery and texture are always a big hit for me, as well as the catwalk, so I’m expecting some very Gucci inspired pieces to be popping up all over the place when it comes to Autumn time. There was also a lovely Bowie tribute once again, with his name embroidered into a cardigan. Bowie influenced fashion in so many ways, so if a designer gets a chance to honour him in the next week, they 100% should. ¬†(Bowie via Instagram)

MOSCHINO Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ MOSCHINO РRATING: 9/10 ~

Inspired by artists, Gilbert & George, I¬†love¬†the direction that Jeremy Scott went. I have to admit, for womenswear, the novelty collections are personally starting to wear off, but this was a nice inbetween. It’s loud, it’s bold but due to the dark, deeper colours running throughout, it’s still fit for the A/W season (although I don’t really believe in saving darker colours for the colder months – brighten up the darker days, right?).

Suits and outerwear were of course a key focus… a lot of them designed in an almost collage style with different fabrics¬†splitting up the textures. I’m a big fan, which means Moschino are once again, in my good books.

Roberto Cavalli Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ ROBERTO CAVALLI РRATING: 9/10 ~

I think a great way to look at this collection is to hear what Peter Dundas had to say about it (who is the current creative director of Cavalli)…

“Nothing in the collection was anything I could not imagine myself owning, or my friends or my lovers wearing. And it‚Äôs a start of what I hope you will consider the beginning of creating a Cavalli wardrobe and a Cavalli look. For me, I dissected in my mind every piece of clothing that I wanted and then how to give it relevance in my vernacular and the Cavalli vernacular, and how also to kind of position it today.‚ÄĚ – (via Vogue)

I love that way of looking at collections as a designer. In my opinion not many designers think this way, which can make collections very stuffy and too focused on a certain outcome… when you step outside of that and just think about what you specifically want for the¬†clothes,¬†you often end up with a just that… a really, brilliant looking range of¬†clothes.¬†

Of course sending out messages is great too, but sometimes you don’t need that, and this A/W selection from Cavalli is a great example. You can still have a very aesthetically pleasing collection, with a strong focus, without actually thinking too much about it.

TOPSHOP Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ TOPMAN DESIGN – RATING: 6.5/10 ~

I feel I have said this for every collection, but Topman/Topshop always intrigues me because it’s in that middle spot where it’s actually still fairly affordable which means really we should be keeping a strong eye on what higher end collections they produce. The one word I would use to define this Topman collection would be…¬†loose.¬†It’s full of loose fabrics and fits¬†as well a loose key inspiration. It’s as if a young guy has raided his granddad’s 70s wardrobe and mixed it in with some of his newer pieces.

It’s a mixture, and I think that’s how we might have to define A/W 16. Every collection is slightly different, just with this rough undercurrent of the 70s still flowing through.

Versace Menswear Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ VERSACE РRATING: 7/10 ~

And this, is why we might have to define A/W 16 as a mixture. Here we have a modern, space vibe that you can put a pin on immediately. It’s metallic, it’s sleek, it’s smooth, it’s bold and slightly sporty. It’s it futuristic though? In many ways, it is, but in many ways, I feel as if the classic Versace style through it off a bit. Or perhaps it’s that undercurrent once again? Versace is a very particular kind of brand… a Marmite brand, but this season definitely caught my eye, which is something new.

I think it might be the metallics… and the badges… but mostly it’s just the metallics (which were also seen in Calvin Klein’s collection – a trend?)

Vivienne Westwood Menswear Collections Autumn Winter 16' Review

~ VIVIENNE WESTWOOD РRATING: 7/10 ~

Another Bowie tribute, with a Starman remix being played over speakers, here we have Vivienne Westwood’s menswear range. I’m going to be honest and say I’m not 100% sure what “Be Specific” meant (the collection’s name), but either way, I like it…

It’s just a really¬†nice¬†collection. It has it’s smart, fitted, tailoring with it’s more casual fits and relaxed knits. It’s the kind of collection I would one hundred percent want my future partner to wear. Is that sad to think about? Yes. Is this review totally subjective? Yes. Am I going to leave you to admire it on your own, now? Yes.

#MooiEnLiefbyTDP Christmas Gift Guide & GIVE-AWAY

By December 3, 2015 Competitions, General

So Christmas is now right around the corner (22 days people,¬†22 days!) so I thought it would be a perfect time to share some little gift ideas for those of you who are need that last bit of inspiration in the form of a Christmas gift guide. For some reason I’ve been really struggling this year – why are you so hard to buy for Papa Posh?!¬†ūüéÖ¬†Each set of gifts are inspired by my collection of socks with Mooi en Lief because I thought it would be quite fun to put together. According to The Telegraph Gift Guide¬†ūüėȬ†socks are a great gift idea… Top Of The Pops magazine think so too; you can spot them on the wishlist page on January 20th 2016!¬†Also, scroll on down for a give-away!¬†ūüéČ

Christmas Gift Guide and Give-Away - Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh - ASOS Urban Outfitters

~ HOMO SUPERIOR ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8


For the Homo Superior pair of socks, I decided to stick with a very gold based colour palette as the yellow is more of a mustard tone so it works really well. Although the design is pretty fun, it’s also really versatile which means it works well with other prints and more simple items like this super cute Monki beanie from ASOS. The Vagabonds are the ones I wore in the Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh lookbook, so if you know any big 70s fans, I’m sure they’ll love a pair of these as a treat (they’re on sale at the mo’ too).

There are also a few miscellaneous items like the Hunky Dory album by David Bowie which is actually one of the inspirations behind this pair of socks (hence the name – Homo Superior – from Oh You Pretty Things), as well as this super cute little Instax frame from Urban Outfitters (I’ve already put this on my own Christmas list!).

~ BLUE BOOTIN ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8


I’m not going to lie, this is probably a Tolly gift guide rather than just a general one because… I love every item. I think bold block prints always work well with either a contrasting colour or monochrome… it just seems to compliment these sorts of prints really well. I had to include at least one Skinnydip item in this gift guide as they have so many exciting pieces now… I mean, look at that¬†ZAP¬†bag?!

Speaking of bags, this awesome Dr Martens number is so beautiful. My black backpack has had¬†so¬†much wear already so I can definitely recommend their bags as much as their boots… who wouldn’t want Dr Martens under their tree, though?

I’ve also included some¬†adorable stocking fillers like some holographic stickers, a book for budding photographers and a keyring incase the¬†ZAP¬†bag is a bit too much for your gift receiver.

~ CAMP BLANC ~


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9


I think when styling up primary colours, it’s best to stay¬†within¬†the primary colour spectrum, so that’s why for these socks I went with some red and blue pieces that compliment the socks really well. Plus, most people like reds and blues especially when it comes to winter and Christmas, so these gifts might be great options. There are quite a few stocking fillers listed too, if you’re looking for smaller gifts. Belts, hats, scarves, gloves and even socks, are great for simple gifts for friends when you’re really stuck for ideas – even if it does sound boring!

I’ve seen lots of these mittens now, going along with the 70s trend, and they look super cosy! Match them with a beanie and you’re good to go… you could even jazz it up with a matching floral crown (I’ve done this with floppy hats before – it magically transforms your hat!). Also for an extra touch of cosy – mugs and hot chocolate are always a great combo!

“Homo Superior” was inspired by the record cover of David Bowie’s ‘Hunky Dory’¬†album, and the song ‘Oh You Pretty Things’ which features the line of lyrics… ‘You gotta’ make way for the Homo Superior’.¬†Homo Superior basically means somebody of supernatural powers, so a bit like a super hero. In my opinion socks are a very big part of a super hero’s costume so it fits well, right?

This pair of socks looks awesome with suede and could totally work with a biker jacket too. Throw on a worn out pair of Converse or of course, Mooi en Lief’s very own “Black Buckle” wellington boots and “Feather Festival Style Kit”!¬†As an entry to this give-away, leave a comment letting me know how you’d style up this pair of socks!

“Electric Blue” was inspired by the roller skating vibes of the 1970s. With blue being one of my favourite colours, and also a hit trend in 2015, it seemed like a perfect combination for mixing with sporty stripes. Along with the whole collection, this pair have a little hidden detail of having the option of being over-the-knee or under-the-knee, with¬†or¬†without the stripes.

Named after David Bowie’s “Sound and Vision” song¬†(Blue, blue, electric blue, that’s the colour of my room)¬†they’re a big flashback to the laid back era. You can wear them with a denim skirt, or a pair of high waisted shorts, or even with a long floaty skirt… but most importantly, pair them with some Mooi en Lief Black Buckle wellies if you’re hitting some muddy (festival) fields!

I can now introduce to you, Mooi en Lief by Tolly Dolly Posh! It’s pretty darn weird to look at it now, because all of these designs were just once scribbles on a piece of paper. I honestly can’t thank Mooi en Lief enough for the amazing experience and opportunity I have been given;¬†thank you!¬†

As you can probably tell from the lookbook images above, the collection is very 70s inspired. I’m actually a really big fan of the aesthetic from the decade, and it just so happened that it fit in nicely with this years popular trend.¬†A big shoutout to Papa Posh for his patience on the shoot day! It was ridiculously hot and I’m pretty sure we both started melting half way through. You did good!¬†

Also, every order comes with a¬†FREE¬†“Dare To Be Different” iron-on patch, and a copy of the full look book!

I wanted to make sure the designs were simple, wearable but of course a little bit different, so there are some hidden smaller details throughout each pair. I’m not quite sure I could pick a favourite as altogether, they look pretty awesome (if I do say so myself!). Also, I hope you like the names, I had a lot of fun thinking them up, and I’m sure I’ll discuss them further in my next few blog posts.

Speaking of those posts, I will be doing 1 seperate post per sock so you can get an even better feel for the collection as well as an opportunity to WIN yourself a pair! So stick around, okay? I’m going to stop rambling now so you can go and¬†buy yourself a pair!¬†It would be highly appreciated and you know, if I ever¬†did¬†get super mega amazingly famous (hehe), you’ll always have a piece of TDP history… *wink*

Happy Birthday TDPFashion!

On March 29th 2012, exactly one year ago, the very first post of the Tolly Dolly Posh Fashion blog was published. It is now March 29th 2013, and I am proud to say, I have been blogging for one whole year. If you don’t want to read this post, don’t, because it is going to be filled with hundreds of Thank Yous, and lots of memories, so you are free to keep on scrolling down the page… (GIF via Tumblr)

cakeMy dream is to become a Fashion Designer as you know, and that is one of the reasons I started this blog. I don’t want it to be the only reason though, I don’t want it to be how I get ‘famous’. My plan in life is not to be famous, but to just be somewhere I am happy, and somewhere I am proud of myself. But, the blog has been the start of that, it’s the little seed that hopefully one day, will grow into a colourful flower, just like me. I’m only starting out my life too, I’m 12 years old, and I have still got an awful lot to learn. Again, my age isn’t something I want people to read my blog for. I want people to read it because they enjoy reading it. I want them to ignore my age whilst reading it, and then afterwards remember, that I am only 12. I hope that if you are a daily/weekly/monthly/yearly reader, that you do enjoy reading my blog, and seeing what I have accomplished in 1 year, I think, perhaps, just maybe, you might? So here’s the soppy, thank you part.

I was also nominated for a MADs Blog Award for 2013, which was amazing! (Good Luck to the finalists!) As you know March 16th for me was another amazing day! I was featured in The Telegraph Magazine that was literally insane. I cannot thank Jessica Salter who wrote the article, enough. Thank You!! Then, to have woken up last Saturday morning, to receive an email saying BBC Radio 4 would like me to speak on the ‘iPM‘ show, just made my life even more complete! WOWZA! (Click the player above to listen!) And! In even more recent news (yesterday), I tweeted an illustration of David Bowie, and it was RTed & Instagrammed by Iman (David Bowie’s Wife) who is a Fashion Designer! Thanks Iman! In a couple of weeks time I have a pretty exciting thing happening too, which you may already know about… Yes, Tolly Dolly Posh is going to be featured in Mizz Magazine! In the very next issue (the exact date will be revealed soon), you will find my¬†face! You may not be a teen, but I used to read this magazine (when I was in the UK), and my sister used to when she was my age too, so it really is awesome!
So far in ways of stats and followers, my PB for stats is 530 which isn’t much for some bloggers, but I literally do not care, that is amazing! I have built up over 920 Followers across Facebook, Twitter, BlogLovin’ HelloCotton, and GFC. Again, I seriously just want you to know, I don’t want to boast. I am just telling you that you have supported me so much through all of these amazing achievements.

photoUnfortunately, due to the fact that I am 12 and don’t have the biggest of budgets, I couldn’t do a massive give-away, but there has been one on! It’s a little thank you for supporting me and my blog as we go on our little journey! Congratulations to the winner!

The Winner of The Harts & Crosses Earring Give-Away is…
