Vetements: Reinventing Fashion One Step At a Time

Beauty, Fashion
Vetements, French for 'clothes', is the brand that can’t be missed in fashion. It has been defined as “the anti-fashion brand waking up the industry” by The Telegraph. Reporter: Alma Fabiani | Sub-editor: Zynab Sandhu Calling themselves a ‘design collective’, Vetements and its team is basically managed as a democracy, where Georgian Demna Gvasalia, his brother, Guram and five other friends all work together. Demna said in an interview with Vogue: “It has to be democratic, it’s the most efficient way to work.” The brand was created in his bedroom in Paris and wasn’t supposed to be commercialised at first.

Holidays During the Christmas Period

Londoners love getting away from the busy city during Christmas period not only to escape the hassle, but also to enjoy a few good days of peace and quiet with their family and friends.
