Burberry’s Sick NYFW Dedication to Youthby ArenaCommerce Collaborator
Dear Burberry, Riccardo Tisci and team, Suicide is not a statement. Murder is not edgy. Torture is not a trend. It is not glamorous nor edgy. I can’t fathom how a hoodie with a rope tied like a noose hanging around the neck was an acceptable piece to put in a show dedicated to the […]
Women Are Killing It With The Old School Nostalgia Street Brandsby Dan Bennett
Streetwear is constantly evolving, and old school nostalgia brands seem to have rotated back into fashion. Who would have thought that those brands we left in the 90s such as Kappa, Puma, Reebok, and Umbro would be a hot fashion trend again in 2018? Even though Streetwear is traditionally seen as masculine, women have been […]

Give “Those Girls” Their Creditby Dan Bennett
Model, Kendall Jenner recently covered LOVE magazine’s #LOVE20 edition and made headlines for one quote in particular: “Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do. More power to […]
If These Roots Could Talk: NYFWby Dan Bennett
Why does something that grows out of your head, need to be censored? Why is it a big deal? The big deal occurs when people of color are denied work because of it. When they are told that they should change their texture or style to fit in. When they are made to feel that being themselves […]
TIS THE SEASON; A GIFT GUIDE FOR YOUR BEST FRIENDby Amy Green
This year has definitely been a difficult year. The hideous political landscape in the UK and abroad, the terrifying and rapid effects of global warming, that “cash me outside” girl’s record deal.

The Erasure of Black Women In Streetwearby Amber Nofetari
Streetwear has evolved tremendously over the past few decades. You’ve got to admit, it’s come a long way from Fubu sweaters and Tommy jumpers.

Why Aspiring to be Parisian is Passéby Annie Morgan
When thinking of French women we generally tend to imagine: slim physiques, effortless style, just a touch of mascara, a red lip and a stripy top, a cigarette and a cappuccino for lunch…I think it’s fair to say that the media loves to perpetuate this idea of “the French woman” or “the Parisian woman” and […]
Fatphobia and Why We Need to Talk about Thin Privilegeby Kitty Underhill
Unfortunately something that unites women and femmes is the constant criticism of our bodies. Our bodies will never be enough as the patriarchy demands that we must take up as little space as possible – to do that, society says we must be thin; it’s easier to control us if we’re focusing on minimising ourselves.
