Hers may already be a familiar face to you. The beheaded Barbie wearing 18 year old fashion designer Rhiannon Jones is a tough one to miss, known as much for her own outlandish personal style as she is for her fashion label Bol$hie. Already a London Fashion Week show with Vauxhall Fashion scout tucked neatly under her studded bumbag and her one-off pieces being snapped up by Gaga, Alexandra Burke and Jessie J to name a few, you’re sure to see a lot more of her top knot, ripped tights and crazy designs in the future.
The watch covered S/S11 piece seen on Jessie J in her video for ‘Nobody’s perfect’
The Bol$hie S/S11 collection features giant clocks, a studded Mickey Mouse policeman’s helmet, monochrome prints, a plethora of short shorts, loud colours, PVC, chunky gold chains and madonna-esque conical breasted leotards. With stand-out peices like the nude spiked-shoulder body complete with plastic chickens, Bol$hie’s designs are exactly what they say they’ll be.
It’s definitely not for the fashionably faint-hearted….. are you chicken?

Ok, so it’s mostly young guys who do the dressing up, costumes cost thousands and there are strict rules that each Animegaos must adhere to, but ultimately seeing two-dimensional characters like Sailor Moon and Princess Peach come to life through these specially crafted costumes is fascinating, and something that could definitely be applied to fashion.
And hey, with all the girly-shaped latex dresses and fantasy feeling in his current collection I’m definitely seeing a future campaign for designer William Wilde…

The delicious cakelets made by Lola’s Cupcakes especially for BLOW were simply divine.
