Reduce & Reuse some brilliant ideas and uses. Remember everything has a double edge to it. Putting it another way, almost everything has a up side and a down side. Some people can always find a negative within a positive idea.

Siviglia Collections SS/13: don't call it vintage style

Siviglia Collections SS/13: don't call it vintage style | curating your interests | Scoop.it

The Siviglia Spring/Summer 2013 Collection takes us back to the swinging fifties and sixties as declared in the vintage-themed Spring Summer 2013 campaign featuring Frida Gustavsson and Tobias Sørensen. This time, the much referenced decades has been given a refreshing spin, with shots inspired to the style icons of the period such Grace Kelly, Cary Grant, Brigit Bardot, Audry Hepbourn.
Fifties, Sixties and Seventies silhouettes were revisited and revilalised; light cardigans, pale polo shirts, clean lines, floral shirts, pashminas and great return of the foulard for men.

The Internationl Association of Forensic Linguists have today launched their new website - which looks slick and professional to me!

 

More importantant than the looks they are also launching a consultation on a Code of Practice.  See http://www.iafl.org/news.php

 

I've been on the drafting committee for this so it's good to see it out there and I'm interested in what responses we'll get.  Please don't send any response to me though; email Ron Butters (ronbutters@mac.com) using the Subject line "CODE OF PRACTICE FEEDBACK".
