SS18 Designer Bag Wishlist

SS18 Designer Bag Wishlist

Will my obsession with bags ever stop? No I don’t think so, one day I will without a doubt have an entire walk in closet just to keep my bag collection! I am speaking it into existence! 2018 has had me obsessing over cross body bags, their small, convenient and more importantly you can run if need be with them. They’re perfect for everyday But of course my love for the classic tote will never stop! This summer we all need to embrace colour, no more keeping it boring with black and brown bags – go out of your comfort zone – who cares if the colour of your bag doesn’t match your outfit, with a bag as expensive as these I will wear them to their death.

Here are the designer bags I think you should invest in this summer.

Best Dressed; 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Best Dressed; 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Last week was the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards and this year wasn’t you’re average Golden Globes but it was a movement, Women and men wore black in support of the Me Too movement and Time’s Up initiative to fight sexual misconduct and gender inequality in the workplace. 

As a young woman growing up in today’s world I find it hard to believe that there is still gender inequality within the workplace, it’s 2018 for goodness sake. No one is born more superior than the other, we are all equal, yet society teaches us that there is a hierarchy and men are at the top of this. Women have always had to fight for their rights, we had to fight for our right to vote and until recently women were only seen to be homemakers, we had to prove ourselves and we have to work a hundred times harder than men in order to gain high ranking roles yet when we do obtain those roles we’re still paid less. Why do men get paid more to do the same job? Why are women disregard for promotions? Why is this still occurring? Who decided this? What more needs to be done for there to be gender equality within the workplace? 

As well as fighting for gender equality the night was also dedicated to fighting against sexual misconduct in the work place. Receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, handed to her by Reese Witherspoon, one of the leaders of Time’s Up Oprah delivered an empowering and emotional speech.“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up. Their time is up.” 

A lot of women are scared to speak out against sexual harassment within the workplace over fear that they may not be believed or that they may lose their jobs. A good example of this is Harvey Weinstein, a well known director in Hollywood who took advantage of his position and convinced women into committing sexual acts with him by telling them they would potentially lose their jobs and last year more than 50 women made allegations against him and the numbers are still growing. This needs to change and it needs to change now! Why does sexual harassment even occur especially in the workplace, women are not objects and they should be able to do their jobs in peace.

Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 campaign #DGmilennials

Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2017 campaign #DGmilennials

Can I just express how much I love Dolce & Gabbana right now! The fashion house recently released their new campaign on instagram last week introducing a whole lot of famous DNA in their new menswear campaign, including the sons of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, Pamela Andersn and Tommy Lee, Jude Law and Sadie frost and Daniel Day – Lewis. The womens campaign included up and coming teen models Thylane Blondeau and Sonia Ben Ammar along side the phenomenon Zendaya.

The shoot took place over several days in Capri. What I love the most is that this shoot represents the society that we live in today, it’s so young and fresh and revolves around what most people can’t live without – social media! Who would have ever thought that social media would be taking over the world in such a big way in such a short space of time? The shoot is so free, vibrant and fun!

I believe that what Dolce and Gabbana are doing is amazing and relates to the world that we live in tiday and this campaign is sure to attract teenagers and young people across the world because it involves so many young social media personalities who are loved by so many people around the world. They have truly thought outside of the box, they took a chance and I honestly believe that it payed off and that this campaign will be extremely successful. As a teenager myself who has grown up around social media I can say that Dolce & Gabbana are ahead of so many of their competitors right now, they saw their chance and took advantage of the resources and the people around in order to create something so amazingly creative and they OWNED IT. Social Media models and influencer’s are the next generation and not very long from now they are going to be taking over the fashion industry because in a world like today’s you can no longer just be a model with a  pretty face but you also need to have a following!
