welcome to the issue

SIX MONTHS AGO, I was in Milan with my fashion director, Kenya Hunt, watching the shows that traditionally set the tone for this, our Big Fashion Issue. That now feels like a lifetime ago. Many of us have spent the last six months doing only waist-up dressing and looking for jazzy jewels to liven up yet another Zoom session. Still, perhaps the best lesson fashion has taught us during lockdown is the psychological power it has to lift our spirits – and there is plenty of mood-boosting inspiration here. As a business, too, fashion pivoted to meet the crisis head-on. Brands repurposed their factories to make PPE and hand sanitiser and, following George Floyd’s death, businesses committed to anti-racist action, such as signing up to the 15 Percent Pledge and…

over to you...

Have your say… Email us at feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @GraziaUK MORE WORK TO BE DONE When I read It’s 100 days since George Floyd’s killing... so what’s changed? (21 Sept) it made me stop and think. City councillors have vowed to reform police departments, statues have toppled and corporations have promised greater diversity and inclusivity. Good; but clearly there is more work to be done. What worries me is that future generations will still struggle with ‘Black lives matter’. I am fed up to the back teeth knowing that some people think they are more important than others. I want my children to grow up in a world that believes in hard work and honesty. Being a good person. And most importantly, treating everyone equally, regardless of…

Let’s not guilt-trip pregnant women over every single drink “Whether it’s your first or third child, pregnancy can be an anxious time. Apart from when you go for your scan, you never know what’s going on in there. So it’s little wonder that expectant mums find themselves worrying, especially given the long list of behaviours we’re told could harm our unborn baby. Now add to the list new proposals by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence to record every single alcoholic drink a pregnant woman has on her child’s medical file – so it’s there forever. Many would argue this is yet another guilt-trip for a group already going through one of the most nerve-racking experiences of their life.”…

it’s the big fashion issue, so welcome to cardi-geddon!

AUTUMN STIRS, and my thoughts drift inexorably to My Look. What? I can’t help it! Global pandemic/reduced financial means notwithstanding: my fashion vibe is like an independent, organic life form, a flickering, urgent, forward-thrusting, ever-evolving consciousness in its own right. Like life (according to Jeff Goldblum in the first Jurassic Park film): It Finds A Way. Indeed, a perfunctory rifle through my wardrobe suggests it already has . Nestling within that hectic, hallowed space, sandwiched between the vintage 501s, lovely A/W ’19 Rixo maxidress I acquired pre-Covid and have yet to wear, the bike shorts over which I didn’t even pause to wonder if I’m too old (I’m not – no such thing)… Rests not one, but seven new/ new-ish cardigans. A collection that has gently established itself through the course…

1. Up SAM FOX No, not her (though she is pretty great)… Her, principle character of Better Things, the best TV show no one’s watching. Season 4 now on iPlayer. Do yourself a favour. 2. Up J-LO In a pink bikini on a beach in the Hamptons. We too favour a large gold hoop with swimwear. We are like her, in so many ways. 3. Non-mover HENRY GOLDING Star of both Crazy Rich Asians and the BBC’s Travel Show, has a lot to recommend him, to which we can now formally add: helped wife with blow-dry in lockdown. 4. Up LESLEY MANVILLE So exceptionally, brilliantly awful in Harlots, in which she delivers the best wig work we’ve seen since Moira Rose, Schitt’s Creek. 5. New in WILL KIRK Of The Repair Shop. Recommended by @Roughers132 off the Twitter. Our googling suggested ‘is he married?’…
