>> I still need to work on that index card system (don't ask me why it has to be an old fashioned library card type set-up) of young designers and graduates who I've written about so that I can routinely check up on them to see what they're up to.  A wee update on Estefania Cortes Harker, whose glitter4eva MA collection for Central Saint Martins last year inspired by the strange veneer of American child beauty pageants, has earned her much editorial attention (all that glitters loves the camera evidently) and so she's quite rightly thought, why ruin a good thing?  For A/W 13-4, she's created a range of clutch bags that use the same glitter covered material as the dresses in her MA collection as well as the surprising ditzy floral linings.  The shapes are derived from the flat accoutrements that made up her stellar collection where graphic shapes would jut in and out from a dress like oversized jewellery.  These clutches continue that narrative of too-much-right-on adornment and decoration and inevitably catch the glint in my glitterbugged out eye.

    Lots of glittery fun, thanks for introducing me to this designer. I know what you mean about keeping an index card system or something similar on designers and anyone else that I have posted about, I always mean to follow up on these posts! I use Pinterest as a kind of system, but I always just find more and more to talk about!
    I love your blog and did a little post on you a short while ago, I hope you don’t mind! Happy blogging! http://no-debutante.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/my-style-inspirations-susie-bubble-aka.html
