New Kids On The Block

‘‘It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-andcoming designers all together.” These are the words of Alexander McQueen, a man at the veritable heart of the fashion industry who evidently knew a thing or two about his trade. Long has the dominating ideology of the fashion world leant towards the new and innovative, attempting to capture, draw, design and sell the zeitgeist. However, what makes a designer label a mainstay of this multi-million pound industry? With apparently successful or well-known names disappearing overnight – Isaac Mizrahi a notable example – what follows is an exploration of some of the most exciting new designer labels working in the fashion world today. Brands that have thrived or made a name for themselves in the harshest of economic climates.

Funding the future: start-up funds and mentoring the way forward for business

In business, as in life, the presence of a mentor can prove an exceptionally significant feature. Luke Skywalker had Obi-Wan Kenobi, Dr. Phil had Oprah Winfrey and now – perhaps more than ever before – help is available for budding billionaires in the form of mutually beneficial start-up funds. Launched by well-established names looking to help out and kick-start other efficacious ventures, the latest addition to this hearty supply is a fund opened by high-profile entrepreneur, and former Apprentice candidate, Raj Dhonota .

Doubting debt: Bank of England figures report small firms are turning their back on financial institutions

When young we are taught ‘neither a borrower nor a lender be’, a gauntlet laid down by Shakespeare but a concept seemingly forgotten in contemporary history. Be that as it may, more recently released figures suggest it is a notion to which an increasing number of small businesses are seeking to return, as the desire to borrow funds apparently reduced in the latter part of last year.

New plans launched to bolster sartorial success

Long has London been a cultural hub of the UK, set in the heart of innovative style and design. Vivienne Westwood, Malcolm McLaren and Carnaby Street, all synonymous with cutting edge couture, conjure images of a fashion scene rife with anarchistic yet simultaneously commercial success. It is perhaps this rich heritage in the world of fashion that also explains why this month, amongst a flourishing British menswear industry, Mayor of London Boris Johnson has launched a new campaign that attempts to support the thriving sector.

Business optimism on the rise

In an inescapably fragile global economy, positive news can be an elusive mistress, with gleeful projections and hopeful outlooks few and far between.
