Become a Prada Shoe Designer

Nothing is better than owning a pair of Prada shoes, but why settle for what everyone else has when you can simply have a pair that you have designed yourself?

For just two days, Prada is giving its loyal London customers the chance to customise their own pair of shoes from the coveted Made To Order Décolleté collection.

On March 26 and 27, Prada aficionados will be able to create their own designer masterpiece at the Sloane Street store, customising one of the nine available styles. You can select everything from fabric, be it satin, suede or the infamous Saffiano leather, to the ever important colour of both the shoe and the sole, not to mention making the tough decision as to how high that heel should be.

After that, the final finishing touch is the addition of your initials on the sole of the shoe in warm amber metal, so if anyone even dares to try and borrow them, you know they won’t get far.

Once the shoes are designed, they will be ready a month later and delivered in packaging that coordinates with your design (of course), then all you have to do is sit back and adore your handy work.

The prices start at £500 and are available only at the Prada Sloane Street store (43-45 Sloane Street London, SW1X 9LU  Tel: +44 207 235 0008).

Vogue L’Uomo Celebrates ‘Powerful Australia’

Cate-Blanchett

It’s the second time this year Cate Blanchett has donned a suit for the cover of Vogue.

The Oscar-winning actress now fronts Vogue L’Uomo, the magazine’s Italian men’s edition, posing with director Baz Luhrmann for the March 2014 ‘Powerful Australia’ issue. Wearing a smooth tux and bow tie combo, slicked back hair and a disarming smize, it’s one of her best covers to date.

Blanchett and Luhrmann are part of a mixed bag of local talents celebrated in the issue, including designers Dion Lee, Josh Goot and Michael Lo Sordo, actors Hugh Jackman, Abbie Cornish and Chris Hemsworth, and musicians Iggy Azalea and Nick Cave. Though the main star is Australia’s wool industry. L’Uomo has partnered with The Woolmark Company on the issue (Italian Vogue EIC Franca Sozzani is part of the International Woolmark Prize judging panel), which was timed to coincide with Woolmark’s 50th anniversary this year.

Sozzani will fly to Australia this week for the first time to fête the issue with three days of shopping and events in Sydney. Thursday’s World Wide Wool will see Sydney boutiques host shopping nights in the vein of Fashion’s Night Out, the Museum of Contemporary Art will open an exhibition of the images shot by L’Uomo Vogue, and the most promising University of Technology students will be paid a visit from Sozzani.

Special kudos to Strateus & Carlucci, Dion Lee, Josh Goot, Christopher Esber and From Britten, who will have their designs showcased in a special fashion installation after being heralded by Sozzani as Australia’s most talented emerging designers.

Suvi Koponen Wears Prada on the Cover Of Vogue Korea’s April Issue (Forum Buzz)

Vogue Korea's April 2014 issue has Suvi Koponen on the cover, wearing Prada which was styled by Ye Young Kim. The Finnish model was photographed by Benny Horne. Korean Vogue is one of those editions which is underrated at times but they often produce some terrific covers, as seen here.

"That styling really works on Suvi..cool cover," wrote justaguy.

Anlabe32 also shared the same positive sentiments: "That's definitely a good cover! Suvi and the Prada look great. Refreshing after Vogue Korea's dark and depressing backgrounds."

"Beautiful cover," added fiqary.

As always, the wit from theFashionSpot members is always evident, with GIVENCHYlover writing, "Reminds me of Mario (the game)."

"I really don't like this sporty-a lot of layers-colorblocking styling… I just don't," exclaims GlamourousBoy.

Bertrando3 also wasn't fond: "Gosh, it's not pretty, I don't get it."

"Fun cover, with a good model who pulled off the styling," wrote Miss Dalloway

Justaguy was also very fond of the cover and commented, "Karolina is bringing it! She looks so great here."

"LOVE. IT. The styling is hilariously over-the-top and KK (with some help from the poofy hair) is pulling it off with aplomb. Love the one hand on hip and the other playing with the necklace. Her expression is playful, too. It's just very well done on all fronts. She looks gorgeous, obviously," exclaimed a very enthusiastic happycanadian.

UrbanStylin kicked off the 90s reference the cover oozes: "Looove it! reminds me of the 90s which she does pretty well since she does have that supermodel quality."

His opinion was then echoed by jexxica: "Very beautiful cover, love the style and colors. Kind of 90s."

Although Bertrando3 wasn't impressed and said, "Gosh I hate it, she looks fake and it's way too over the top. Her Vogue covers have always been like that: hit or miss and THIS is a big miss."

Here’s What People Really Think About the Kim/Kanye Vogue Cover (Forum Buzz)

If you haven't already seen US Vogue's April 2014 cover with the "#worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple" Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, I don't know where you've been for the past few days. Vogue released the cover Friday which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz.

Anna Wintour's decision to put Kimye on the cover of American Vogue has sparked major discussion within theFashionSpot forums. The very first comment by t-rex read, "Get out. This thread will be a great one and remembered for a long time." Our members do not disappoint and have made for some excellent reading.

As you would expect, the cover didn't go down well and within the first few minutes fee de foret wrote, "This is why after 5 years I've let my Vogue subscription run out. [Irrelevant] cover stars, stale editorials and worst of all, unimaginative fashion! It's become a pitiful, desperate edition."

Honeycombchild was not happy with Wintour's decision either: "I'm really disappointed with the decision to make this cover. I think this is the first issue of US Vogue that I won't be buying in about ten years. I find that sad and mostly I'm just confused that Vogue thinks she and Kanye are what their audience wants to read about."

Magdalena00 simply wrote, "RIP Vogue Magazine."

Amongst all the negativity came this comment from Bobby153: "I was actually really looking forward to a Kim K cover, I thought there was a lot of potential to do something very interesting with her. Vogue can take ‘un-Vogue’ like subjects and make them look beautiful, there was a lot of hoopla around the Kate Upton cover but I thought it was very striking and one of my favourite covers of recent times."

A fragment of Cottonmouth13's comment was also positive: "I honestly think the cover somehow looks great. It's poetic, romantic and a little nice too."

I'm almost certain this issue will fly off the shelves, considering the mass of attention this issue is getting right now. People are always willing to own a bit of history too — and this is it. "All publicity is good publicity," as Kite stated.

Discussion progressed between members with over 342 replies to the thread and almost 46,562 views, thus far.
