Welcome to Mid-September and it’s time to talk about New York Fashion Week. It’s happening as we speak, so in this edition I bring you a sneaky peek – quite literally – of the latest trend to come out of the Big Apple.
As well as NYFW, this week was also all about the super stylish GQ Awards. An awards ceremony where British male talent comes out to play in the most dapper suits to an ultra sophisticated event.
I always like to see who wins the GQ Best Dressed Man of the Year, and 2017 didn’t disappoint.
Thoroughly deserving winner Zayn Mallik wins hands down. He is the full package, in my book and if I was 20 years younger…
Rock & Roll Star of the year went to mean and moody Liam Gallagher who I love, especially when he’s drunk and game for a brawl.
Garage Act of the year went to the brilliant Kurupt FM, who looked incredibly smart on the night – a world away from baseball caps, tracksuits and Nikes.
Spot on again, Solo Act of the year went to Stormzy. No need to explain why.
But my guilty pleasure category is GQ’s Comedian(s) of the year, won by Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, following their ‘food and wine travelogue’ series ‘The Trip’. Very funny.
Most guys attending opted for the white tuxedo this year, which is always a winner.
Onto this week’s instalment of Amanda Zips It Up, and as well as New York Fashion Week, we explore Primark’s latest novelty range and how the fashion emoji is about to emerge.
