They both made huge sums of money for each other, but the three-year design partnership between the supermodel Kate Moss and the retail tycoon Sir Philip Green will draw to a close later this year.

Yes, of course it would be nice to live in a more timely fashion world where we didn't have to consider buying coats before October. It would also be lovely to park right outside Topshop Oxford Circus on a Saturday and find the changing rooms empty. Dream on. The reality is that fashion is always two steps ahead and if you don't grab one of the best jackets or coats post-haste, you're dicing with disappointment.

Milestones are odd things aren’t they? They either pass you by, only to be recognised retrospectively (that first swig of Smirnoff Ice; the first time you paid council tax) or they are so hyped up, so encased in self-conscious significance, that they assume a life of their own, rendering you as little else than a spectator to proceedings (graduation; turning 25).
Deborah Ross: 'One of the seven signs of ageing is surely having pores big enough to host music festivals in'

In the great tradition of all female travellers experiencing a sartorial crisis at a UK transport hub, I found myself last month in the Heathrow branch of Accessorize. The strap on my handbag, I explained superfluously to the shop assistant, had broken, which had come as no surprise, as it was vintage. She asked if it had been very expensive. Not really, I told her, as I hoisted the defunct gold 1980s number on to the counter (although, considering the craftsmanship, a tenner was indeed quite pricey). Upon sight, she laughed like a drain and said, "Oh right, it's just old."

With London Fashion Week just two months away, the hunt is on for the next British-based design star. Three likely contenders were revealed yesterday when the talent showcase Fashion East announced its latest line-up, with Simone Rocha, the daughter of the designer John Rocha, among the young names hoping to catch the eye of international fashion press and buyers.
Carola Long: 'The maxi dress has had some really bad PR thanks to the bad-taste behemoth that was 'boho''

There's something about the maxi dress which makes it a permanent fixture as a fantasy summer look. The look where you acquire a golden tan without any UV damage and spend August enjoying the cool sea breeze on a yacht, rather than the tepid blast of the office air-con.
