I just discovered Nixxi, a fabulous fashion label whose clothes are uber cool and glamourous, as well as being sustainably produced. Bravo!

As far as I am aware, Nixxi isn’t (annoyingly) available to buy in the UK…although, trust me, I am looking! It appears to be a Canadian label, and my Mum is travelling over there later on this year, so may have to ask her to bring me some bits back!

Nixxi has been nominated for a ‘Fashion Takes Action’ award, and I hope they do well! The clothes are utterly feminine and gorgeous. Lots of drapery, and floating fabrics. ‘Clean silhouettes in organic textures’ as they put it. I love it.

The new collection from the Ethical fashion label ‘Noir’ is once again stunning,proving that ethical and sustainable fashion doesn’t have to conform to the typical stereotype of baggy trousers and oversized frumpy tops. The brand prides itself on its ‘ethical luxury’ ethos, which is something very rare in the fashion world, but something very exciting. The brand is available at Harvey Nichols in the UK, and it worth a look if your fashion conscience is telling you to make more valuable and considered choices.

The new S/S 09 collection is once again sexy, feminine, elegant and sumptuous!the caption that has been attached to the collection is ‘A LYRIC TO A NOIR NYMPH’…hinting at a pixie like style and nymph like silhouette, but don’t be afraid, it is not too fantasy-like!With the campaign photo shoot being sot on a white sand, blue sea beach with dead and weathered trees the collection looks very raw natural. As always, the primary colour palette is monochrome, i.e white/cream with black…exactly what every woman wants.

The collection consists fo dresses, trousers, tops etc. all in luxurious looking fabrics. Clever use of pleats, folding and drapery give the collection a very modern and sexy appeal.There are styles to cater to every shape and every style…large bust?try the beautiful black v necked dress, to the knee in matt black with black satin sash around the waist to highlight those wonderful curves. How about long and slithe?Well,who better ot pull off thier long and sleek pure white floor length dress with thing black belt than you?!With a subtle v neck mixed with full length skirt with a slash up to the thigh it shows of those perfect pins!Still in doubt?Why not take a look at the collection itself at: http://www.noir-illuminati2.com/noir.php#/182788/S/S 09 Noir Campaign
