House of Style Reboot
MTV’s Iconic show about model life is back! After an 11 year hiatus, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls have picked up where Cindy Crawford so famously left off. The girls’ first episode aired on October 16th with Paris Fashion Week. The cameras followed them around as they worked out, had their makeup done and walked the runway. Have no fear, they will also be continuing with the original format of interviewing their famous colleagues, such as Mario Testino and Stella McCartney.

Mulberry Releases a Very Different Fashion Film
Mulberry released a video this week highlighting some of the lovely knitters who create their plush jumpers. Very informatively, but also heart-warmingly so, they teach us the ins and outs of knitting, fabric quality and the importance of family in this crat.
