“The word doodle was derived from the verb dawdle, meaning wasting time or being lazy. However if you are an artist then this is a process. A doodle becomes a sketch, a sketch becomes a structure and from that structure comes a geometric pattern.”
After infinite-scrolling down to the bottom of British print label,David Davids new Tumblr-operated website, I found the quote above followed by one of David Saunders scrawlings on a wooden table, which should prompt me to see if I could get the doodle-to-sketch-to-structure-to-pattern process happening.

Gwyneth would be filling the shoes of former Topshop celebrity designer Kate Moss, whose 3-year, £3 million contract with the chain ended last fall.

“Height without the pain” is my defence point about brothel creepers, the cult-to-mainstream shoe and their ability to pair up with just about anything – actually the more contradictary the better – anything light and frothy to take the weight of those heavy rubber soles. With three pairs and counting in my stomping shoes section (along with the Docs and trainers), Ive actually become Miss Creeper to some people and now to my two pairs of TUKs, some vintage deadstock ones, Ive now added a pair of Underground ones.
Underground have recently been getting catwalk happy, most prominently by collaborating with Thierry Mugler on their A/W 11-12 show shoes and in London, the spiritual home of the shoe as seen on WWII returning soldiers to Teddy Boys to 80s punks, Ashish complimented his sequinned take on Brit-grunge with a pair of houndstooth special edition creepers as well as a pair of studded black ones that had been customsied with Tippex.

Proctor & Gamble is best known for their mega famous beauty brands, but the company is now making fashion headlines with plans to host the first 3-D fashion show in the Middle East.
The celebrate the launch of their new laundry detergent, Ariel, P&G have planned a fashion show next Thursday. The idea behind the show is that the detergent has 3-D technology micro-boosters, therefore why not display it in the biggest way they can? The detergent is launching in Dubai and the Middle East next month, so they are inviting press there to see the show first hand.
The fashion show will feature garments from Middle Eastern designer Aiisha Ramadan, who told WWD this show will hopefully help her brand get international exposure as press from around the world will be in attendance.
