… a word from Amanda

Welcome to a brand spanking New Year. Whether you loved or loathed 2017, it’s time to embrace ‘18 and the next chapter of fashion and wellbeing.

I spent the festivities in Mallorca and Dubai – which were both memorable, and distinctly non-rock’n’roll. Peaceful and healthy – no dramas – just sunshine, snoozes and a good book.

I hate January, mostly because it’s cold, dark and miserable. Everyone is bloated and a little depressed. Plus, it’s back to school or work, which is never fun after a big blowout.

Here at Zips It up, we aim to brighten up this bluest of months with colourful fashion predictions and healthly lifestyle hints to make you feel tip top again.

In this issue, we check out Men’s London Fashion Week 2018, which the girls will love, as we feature David Beckham and Tinie Tempah’s collections, plus your diet & mood changers. Plus, is it the end of the SELFIE as we know it?

I’m predicting some new up and coming fashion trends from London to Ibiza, which look set to make 2018 a stylish year to remember. Here are a few sneaky peeks at what we’ll be wearing this season.
