I picked up a copy of the first issue of Fashion Line Magazine and I’m hooked – the writing is dripping with sarcasm, there’s no fashion arse-kissing, they feature awesome designers like Jens Laugesen and Camilla Staerk, and of course, they’re London-based. A particuarly cool editorial was this wacky, neon-drenched interpretation of Swan Lake. It’s ballet gear on an acid trip. You already know I rate dancewear by itself – all I would have to do is inject some bright Crayola colours and I will have uncovered my inner hyperactive ballerina self!

    This is lovely but do you think they may have been at least mildly inspired by Dandi Wind’s neon dancewear look? Look at some of her performance costumes: http://dandiwind.com/images/index.htm
    Love your blog, btw.

    Venus Loon: You could be right! Thanks for the link btw – some interesting images there. Along with that inspiration, I think they were relating the shoot to an article a few pages before the edit which talked about how the Flashdance look should be worn. I caught a whiff of Flashdance/Fame in the editorial.

    Nicky: I bought the magazine in Borders Charing Cross Road. Not sure where you live but if you go to the website, you should be able to get in touch with FL to find out where it’s stocked in your area.
