Top Models on the Runway: Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel, & Hilary Rhoda
Jenny Cleeton has spoken to the designer, from Glasgow Clyde, who was recently named by Vogue as ‘the one to watch’ at the event.
Backed by House of Fraser, Glasgow Clyde fashion graduate, Rebecca Torres is looking to the future for her next big event during London Fashion Week.
After studying at Glasgow Clyde College, Rebecca Torres has shot to success after being named by Vogue as “the one to watch” after Asos bought her entire collection in 2011, “They asked if they could show it [the collection] to Asos,” Torres comments after receiving a call from an old university associate, “The next thing I knew Asos wanted to buy my entire collection.” Torres was put on the website as her own person rather than by Asos which meant she started receiving calls frequently which is what prompted her to make her own website with the help of her brother.

New York Fashion Week here, with just a few days left before normal life turns into an elbow-jabbing, style-frenzied, cocktail-heavy New York Fashion Week we can’t help but think of the exciting things to come.

There are many things to look forward – or hope for – during NYFW: we’ll even see the silver lining of the frosty situation as on streets, it does, after all, generate some impressive winter dressing. Scroll down to see the eight things we’re crossing toes and fingers and faux fur scarves for…

Especially considering Yeezus is still reportedly on a mission to get KK onto the front cover of US Vogue. May the match-matchy super-stealthy outfit parade commence. Stilettos in sub-zero temperatures shall soon become the norm.
2: Manolo Blahnik and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Shoe Line Will Be Officially Revealed IN THE FLESH @ New York Fashion Week.
A shoe collaboration made in heaven, quite possibly even crafted by little fashion industry cherubs, will surely be the toast of the town. We’re talking of course about Manolo Blahnik pairing up with SJP. Although we’ve already seen the full collection pics online, this is the chance to try ‘em out for real. The actress has famously long been a fan of the designer’s stilettos since her days as Carrie in Sex and the City, so expect snaking queues of superfans when they launch in a pop up shop in Nordstrom on March 2.
