* Famed photographer Nick Knight is keeping up with the times and has embraced the IPhone, all its amazing apps and instgram. Since we love love love instagram ourselves we sort of think Nick was reading our minds when he said this ""Having a phone and an inst gram account means that I can create images on my own. When I first started using it a couple of years ago, it reminded me of the 70s, when I first started out in photography. It felt very direct – it was about me taking the image. It felt really authentic" You can follow Nick on instagram here or our much more amateur authentic, instagram here

* We often tend to think of Bruce Oldfield as a "vintage" designer but he is still presenting collections and still is the head of his house. He told Vogue UK "I would never do a London Fashion Week show unless it was heavily sponsored," he told us after the show. "I'm happy with the niche I've carved out - making specialist garments for those who appreciate the qualities and the process of couture." His presentations take place in the salon in the traditional couture manner. We love a bit of a reminder that not all fashion is "fast"

* The Art Gallery of South Australia said it would showcase more than 100 iconic couture outfits in an exhibition titled “Fashion Icons,” slated to open in Adelaide on Oct. 25, 2014, and run through Feb. 1, 2015. From the archives of Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris this is this exhibits next trip as it begins its tour around the world. While we love an excuse to travel we are also crossing our fingers that it eventually ends up somewhere nearby! Lucky Aussies!

* This article in Vogue has a slideshow with some of Bruce Weber's finest photographs. Weber seems to be everywhere these days and Vogue seems in on the fervor with links to buy his prints and to subscribe to their full archives - and yes we will accept either as Christmas gifts. We have no shame.
