The Fur Guru

Jesus Lorenzo

Jesus Lorenzo: Some medicine for the gloomy days (and hearts)

“Elegance is elimination.” – ― Cristobal Balenciaga. Lately, this Guru has been out and about around London: enjoying the city and all the events that have been occurring and that this fashion and lifestyle lover thought would be relevant to share with you. Today is different, the city is wet and the Guru is a bit run out because of lack of sleep (perks of motherhood) and feels a tiny bit melancholic. To help with the lack of sleep, a good coffee and to help to survive the melancholy she makes use of good memories. And there are no better memories than a sunny day in Madrid, with the lovely people from SFA and meeting talented designers. Oh yes! This Guru’s pen and paper (and camera too) thrive with them and Jesus Lorenzo’s work was a highlight of her past trip to the lively Spanish capital. He possesses all the fire, courage and that bit of madness so required to innovate on the catwalk. For most of us, a mystery… where do all this ideas come from? This Guru will be quiet now and better, let him tell his story. More

Is Now The Right Time For An Industry As Old As Fashion To Change?

It’s time for a catwalk revolution. But why cats? And why are they walking? I want to see a dogdive. A rhinolunge. The catwalk is worn-down, in need of a good scrub. I’m seeing out-of-season clothes being paraded in the same four cities year-in, year-out. This is the high fashion industry. We’re supposed to be innovators, yet we’re stuck in the past. Why are we so averse to change, and what are we doing to disrupt this vehemently archaic system? Things were looking up in early 2016, with announcements from Tom Ford, Burberry, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren that they would be delivering ‘see-now buy-now’ services, making their lines available for purchase directly after their Fashion Week shows.
