The stern face judge on Project Runway Issac Mizrahi has recently suggested he plans to break into children’s fashion creating a 25 piece catalogue for fashionable tots.

The recently married designer announced his partnership with the to baby wear brand Bebe, he suggested to the media that the team are the perfect match and it was ultimately the best collaboration in a long time he also said meetings are simple as they are all on the same page so it appears as if its fashion genius.

It was perfect timing in terms of the release of the announcement especially with the news of the birth of Beyonce and Jay-z’s baby girl Blue Ivy Carter– no doubt it was a direct message to them!

The collection will be a humorous take on adult clothing that will be redesigned for kids and will be strictly black and white.

Out in select department stores and boutiques shortly.

We think this will be the first announcement of many of tot designs by celebrities and designers.

Just remember we told you first!

Since the Royal wedding back in April 2011, the Middletons have been a regular name in the fashion papers especially the perfect derrière of Pippa Middleton.

Other than the lady-in-waiting’s figure, her simple and elegant bridesmaids dress trended on Twitter throughout the entire Royal wedding weekend as it was the perfect mix of understated beauty with outstanding presence, the dress was a one of a kind by the fashion house Alexander McQueen designed by Sarah Burton.

The dress retailed at $39,000, but we are pleased to announce that it not only limited to those that want to spend the same amount as a car on a dress- with the assistance of high street retail department store Debenhams.

The Debenhams designers have put together the Pippa Bridesmaids dress for a superb and reasonable £200/ $250 which is out for release on the October 17th 2011- in great time for those getting married in 2012.

Alain Mehada, the Debenhams chief personal shopper at the flagship Oxford Street Store commented on the latest range “We’ve been inundated by customers asking if we have anything similar to dresses worn by Kate, Pippa and the flower girls, but the ivory dress worn by Pippa is the most request by far,” whilst Russell Fish,  the head of the occasional wear at Debenhams said “We have taken the best of the dresses and added our designer twist, Now everyone can get the Middletons’ look at high street prices”

The question that really came into mind when I heard the news of these dresses is that- would you want to copy such a world known, renowned and recognisable dress? Would your guests and family at the wedding appreciate you for purchasing the copy? Why would you want to copy the dress that headlined twitter? Hmm.. Questions..Yes it was a lovely dress on Pippa but it really is some heavy shoes to fill- Well, I will have to keep an eye on the wedding blogs to see if there is a general conformity to such a dress. To be continued next year!!

Coinciding with the start of london fashion week, the launch of the brand is owned by Tina Knowles’ (Beyonce’s mothers) and Beyonce and her sister Solange- and is lovingly named after their seamstress grandmother Agnes Dereon. The fashion line finally debuted here yesterday after 8 years of success in the U.S. Taking the UK by storm with a dramatic fashion show to showcase the latest collection.

We enjoyed the fashion show- the latest line s/s 12 included a lot of striking bold prints, lots of sequins and sparkle and dramatic feathers so it is ideal for all us exhibitionist girls!

On the closing of the show the mother and daughter pair came down the run way to say thank you and looked very much like sisters in similar black smart outfits. Beyonce, who is now openly pregnant as she made the announcement of her news at the VMA’s a few weeks ago (story found here). It is the singers first child with rapper Jay-Z and is said to be taking daily massages and purchasing copious amounts of creams and lotions to keep stretch marks to a minimal- it is estimated that the couple will spend a million dollars in the run up to the birth of the baby!

Beyonce wore yet another sequined jacket which covered her entirely, (bump included) with a matching pair of sparkle pants and high platform heels.

They Both sat down to discuss the launch and their thoughts on British Fashion, also giving us incite into what inspires the designs and how they love Selfridges, stating that they came shopping in the store a few months ago!

Beyonce also declared her love for british model Kate Moss, admiring her fashion sense and the way she puts certain items together.

The Video of the beautiful pair is below…We have to say Beyonce is looking fabulous- she is actually glowing- she is clearly glowing!

 

 

 

 

Since 2004 the line has only been available in the USA but as of today it will now be on sale in Selfridges and is CURRENTLY only exclusive to the Selfridges store.

So if you want to fill your wardrobes with Beyonce’s fashion it no longer requires a flight to New york just a trip to Oxford street!
