Student summer fashion for the girls

The end-of-year parties, barbeques and balls are coming up and if you're worried that your budget will leave you looking like the penniless student you are, fear not, here are 10 must-have items for the summer...all for under £35.

Old-school fashion

Vintage has long been a buzz word in the fashion industry, bandied around by designers and celebrities alike. No fashion connoisseur should be without at least one timeless, classic vintage designer piece, but what about us mere mortals and penniless students?

Fast fashion

students were once the pioneers of edgy, eclectic fashion. Customised, clashing pieces were mixed with classic wardrobe staples and nothing was off-limits in terms of style; in fact, the more outlandish the better. But these days the streets are awash with hundreds of Ugg boot-clad, Sienna Miller clones - where has all the experimental fashion gone?

Model students

The Hair Priory Student Model search is to announce the winners of its first student modelling competition at the end of January during a fashion event at the University of Plymouth featuring, among other things, an exclusive DJ set from Mike Fielding, star of The Mighty Boosh.

How to grab a January bargain

Love them or loathe them, this year’s January sales are better than ever thanks to the credit crunch; stores have resorted to heavy discounting of up to 75 per cent to attract customers. So, how can you make the most of them and get your money’s worth?

Budget clothes for the boys

When it comes to selecting some choice garments off the rack for the Christmas party season, the gentleman buyer can find himself being overlooked in the rush to wax lyrical over the latest cocktail dress. Not so here at Indy Student.

Knitting success

Up-and-coming designer Simone Shailes latest collection of chunky knitwear just picked up the L'Oreal Professionnel Fashion Design award at the Top Shop-sponsored New Gen exhibition at London Fashion Week. Indy Student managed to lure her away from canapés and the catwalk for a chat about how she went from knitting with her nan to kitting-out Kylie.

Scouting young talent at London Fashion Week

As London Fashion Week’s prima donnas are busy sipping bubbly and munching on carrot sticks it’s nice to see a bit of altruism in the world of haute couture with Vauxhall Fashion Scout giving a group of aspiring designers the chance to showcase their collections alongside some of the biggest names in fashion.
