Designer, DJ and trend setter Fearne Cotton, has recently previewed her exciting Very.co.uk Spring Summer 2011' womens clothes collection with a catwalk presentation at London's Bloomsbury Ballroom.
The 34 piece Spring / Summer 2011 collection, which will be available to buy via Very.co.uk on 1st January 2011, encapsulates Fearne Cotton's signature vintage style. Inspired by a mixture of 60's and 70's references the range incorporates detailing and silhouettes fashioned by the London Modernists and the bijou yet spirited style icons of the decade such as Jean Shrimpton and Marianne Faithful.
The DJ-turned-fashion-designer presented her fourth Very.co.uk collection to a 100-people-strong audience, which included fashion writers and editors for the likes of Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Stella, Now and Glamour magazines, as well as celebrities such as Craig David, Alesha Dixon and Reggie Yates.
Talking about her range, Fearne stated: "My Spring Summer 11' collection is all about floaty, ethereal, delicate pieces. I wanted this collection to feel almost angelic and innocent. Beautiful clothes to breeze around in, to fall in love in, and to have fun in."
Fabrics are kept light and flirtatious to compliment the Twiggy-esque skirt lengths and delicate toile de jouy prints. Dresses encumber lightweight chiffons and satins that are finished with coloured collars and detailing such as dainty rose borders. Then faded denims, lace and crochet, bolero style cardigans, high-waisted trousers and Peter Pan collars nod to the decadence of the 1970s.
"I was so excited about the big show; I picked out all the tunes for the catwalk and seeing the garments coming down the catwalk made me so proud. It all looked beautiful" said Fearne.
The collection which cements Fearne's fashion credentials, is her fourth for online store Very.co.uk, and is her strongest and most directional to date.
Product Director, Matt Hudson said, "Fearne is one of Very.co.uk's most popular designers. It is exciting to see how her range has developed over the seasons with the Spring Summer '11 collection providing an even more fashion forward look. By combining her sense of music with fashion, Fearne gives a strong handwriting for her collection, which we expect to grow further in popularity with our customers."
Fearne's show was streamed live on Fabulousmag.co.uk and the creative team behind it included Sunday Times Style regular stylist Lucy Ewing, Samantha Hillerby and Shinobu. Fearne adds: "It was amazing to have it streamed live on the internet as I wanted the show to be accessible to everyone"

Terra Marketing Group, a local Internet marketing firm, is sending its employees to The Mustard Seed on November 4 to prepare and serve a meal to the homeless and less fortunate.
"Terra Marketing Group has always been committed to doing everything we can to help our community," Jesse Willms the company's CEO said. "Giving back to the community is, has been and always will be a major part of our business model. It's something we are happy to do."
The Mustard Seed is a local Edmonton organization that was founded by a local Baptist church in 1988 in order to help tackle the problems of inner city residents. Since then, it has been embraced by most local faiths and the secular community. The organization provides free hot meals six nights a week. They also distribute food hampers to people who cannot make it to their food bank in person. They also run a separate program that provides clean clothes, person hygiene items, women's jackets online household items and work related items to people who need them.
"The point of The Mustard Seed is to provide people with personal dignity," Jesse said. "One of the hardest things about living in poverty is that it can eat away at your self-respect and self-esteem. Once that happens, it can be easy to simply give up. We want to make sure that doesn't happen, because we believe that people can claw their way out of poverty."
Terra Marketing Group is an Internet marketing company that believes in success through innovation. They look at emerging sectors of the Internet marketplace and find ways to improve existing products and services. Then, once they have done so, they used their improved products to dominate that niche marketplace. Along the way, they spend a significant portion of their time, money and energy partnering with and supporting various global and local nonprofit organizations. Their initial efforts were spent supporting global organizations that help women and children, including World Vision, Samaritan's Purse and the Kiva Foundation.
But, they recently decided that it was time to support smaller nonprofits in their local community. To that end, they have provided help for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Canada, Santas Anonymous and now The Mustard Seed.
"Going to The Mustard Seed will give us a chance to witness the effects of poverty first hand," Jesse said. "We think it will also help us have a deeper understanding of what we can do to combat poverty in the real world."
The company said they plan to announce a new local charitable initiative in the near future. For new initiatives visit Terra Marketing Group Twitter.

Dr. Joel Aronowitz, Specialist in Los Angeles Body Lift, Announces Plastic Surgery Options After Bariatric Surgery Weight Loss
Bariatric surgery improves the health of morbidly obese people helping them lose the weight. Patients may be left with over 100 pounds lost but also with sagging skin. After gastric bypass and diet, patients finally have a healthy weight for one person but are left with enough redundant skin for two. Board certified Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Joel Aronowitz, announces plastic surgery options available to help patients achieve the body they want after bariatric surgery and weight loss.
Bariatric surgery has become a life-changing weight loss alternative for dangerously obese people. Sometimes it is the only option available to take off the weight. According to a story in the "Los Angeles Times" by Susan Brink, nearly 14,000 people in California alone have some type of weight loss procedure yearly.
The health benefits are undeniable. According to Brink, studies have shown that weight loss due to bariatric surgery can actually reverse diabetes, which is a common affliction of the obese. Other health issues that are greatly alleviated or prevented are joint pain and arthritis, heart disease and respiratory problems.
For a morbidly obese person, the health risks typically outweigh any risks from surgery. However, once the weight has come off, there is a new issue to address. Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Joel Aronowitz, sees this every day in his practice at Cedars Sinai Medical Towers. He says, "My patients have taken control of their health and lost the weight, but they still lack the self-confidence that should come with extreme weight loss."
The problem is excess sagging skin that was stretched and filled with fat. Once the fat is gone, the skin droops; its elasticity ability to bounce back is gone. Dr. Aronowitz offers to his patients a variety of plastic surgery procedures that eliminate this loose skin.
For example, the excess skin of the abdominal area may droop over the pants and keep her from wearing form-fitting clothes or him from taking his shirt off in public. It can make a person very self-conscious. Dr. Aronowitz will evaluate the patient and probably suggest a belt lipectomy ("body lift") and/or tummy tuck. Los Angeles men and women have this procedure to pull the skin taut, remove the excess and smooth out the abdominal area.
Each post-bariatric patient is different, and Dr. Aronowitz insists on a thorough consultation to determine treatment. He comments, "Some patients may need just a tummy tuck, while others may need more than one procedure. It is a case by case situation." The amount of weight lost and the condition of the skin helps determine the areas in need of attention.
Dr. Aronowitz may recommend a number of procedures such as the armplasty, which tightens and shapes the arms, or a thigh lift, which tightens and lifts the thigh area. Some patients may need all over treatment, in which case he may recommend Tips: Find Street Fashion Online(may be you can find what you want on the oasap.com) a complete body lift. This procedure addresses abdominal region, the thighs and buttocks.
It may also be necessary to complement the procedures with liposuction to get the best possible look. Sometimes stubborn fat pockets don't go away even after bariatric surgery.
Dr. Aronowitz said, "I have done my job when I help a person gain back even a little of her self-esteem and confidence after successfully losing weight."
