  • Comment on: New Look goes back to the future

    Jessica Brown's comment 25 March 2011 9:12 am

    Thanks for you comment. If you re-read the above, you will see I am agreeing with you entirely. My point is that Tom and Roger "the product and people men" are entirely the reason for successes of busnesses like New Look. You seem to have misinterpretted my perspective on the management team who tried to sell the business.

  • Comment on: Sir Philip Green: I will try to bring manufacturing back to UK

    Jessica Brown's comment 16 March 2011 8:30 pm

    Sir Philip Green supporting UK manufacturing? That is a very significant retailer - probably the most significant in fashion - throwing his weight behind the stated ambition of the Government to increase manufacturing in the UK.
    Manufacturers are trying to take advantage of the present growth opportunities but have relayed to Drapers that they need the backing of retailers to be able to overcome the many hurdles they face. Green is potentially a brilliant vehicle and powerful figure for them to have on side.

  • Comment on: IMAGE GALLERY : The Oscars 2011 - Who wore it best?

    Jessica Brown's comment 28 February 2011 12:12 pm

    Nicole Kidman's dress is horrendous as are her shoes. Also really surprising to see her wear Dior given the controversy around that brand at the moment.
    I found Natalie Portman's dress dull. I know she is heavily pregnant but I feel an Oscar winner should be doing better than that with the gown she chooses on what will probably be the biggest night of her life.
    I agree with the above that Scarlett's was a good choice and I expect we will see influences of this, namely the colour and the use of lace, filter down into contemporary eveningwear in time for Xmas.
    The pale palette was a strong theme too, though I do think it will be hard to translate long white dresses. Wearing a white maxi to an event like this is much easier than in everyday life when it can look a bit wannabe bride.

    Jessica Alba was definitely my favourite. The colour is incredible and I think we will see this filter through into more eveningwear from now.

    Emma Watson's i thought was a triumph. I like the netural palette she has been working.

    JK Rowling - what can I say? All over python print is not great for women of a certain age. Also the cut makes it look like she is shedding her skin.

  • Comment on: Cooper & Stollbrand to feature in Channel 4 documentary

    I am definitely going to be Sky+'ing this one. I've been to this factory and it is truly incredible. It's like a time warp to the 1950s but the people are amazing - so talented and determined and hard working. They make great quality product and have an incredible archive too.
    There is a major skills gap in the UK manufacturing industry so it will be fascinating to hear the story of this factory through the eyes of some of the few skilled worked who are left.
