Fashion - Dressed up to the "K" nines By Jo Allison
It might not be over the top as L.A. or be home to the ludicrously lavish lifestyles of Paris Hilton, but Beverley can proudly boast that it's home to some wonderfully, well-dressed dogs. Just take a look inside the wonderfully doggy dressing up box, situated down Lairgate, Beverley. The Dog Shop is the fashionable dog owner's best-friend.

Fashion - My Day as a Model By Annie Wykes Photos By Mo
Right, well to start off, I'm not a model at all and was really nervous about
doing this modelling for Bekki, a Second Year Fashion Journalism degree Student, who studies in Epsom but is actually from Hull. I've always wanted to be a model and today I had my chance to get some experience in a photo shoot and so I took it up.
For around a week before the shoot I had to drink loads of water
Fashion - Out With the New, In With the Old By Bekki Stephenson
The idea of wearing old clothing as new developed in the mid 1960s.
The idea of mass production was wearing thin among the trendy youths and so they began to
search for clothing that made them stand out from the crowd, scouring one-off boutiques,
flea markets and thrift shops.
As a reaction to this newly acquired vintage vogue the 1970s became the era of the
Fashion - An Interview With Cherona Blacksell, Fashion Designer By Bekki Stephenson
It is often a false preconception that coming from Hull makes things slightly more difficult, opportunity wise, to get into the fashion industry. This has always angered me. Granted, Hull is not the trendiest of fashion hotspots about, but as I hope ThisisUll's fashion pages are proving, there is certainly a lot more out there than meets the eye.
So in an eager hope to promote
Fashion - Living With... Large Thighs By Jo Allison
As summer shines upon us, I breathe a sigh, and not one of relief; tights are officially over.
For another season I must succumb the general public to my wobbling white flesh, nylon
coverings are just far too warm.
As a baby, I was evidently very well fed, as they say breast is best, and as a result,
I grew alarmingly large as a child. Looking back at old primary school
Fashion - Boys Catch The Beauty Bug By Bekki Stephenson
Gone are the days when men got home from work, gave themselves a quick dousing with
soap and water only to appear in the local five minutes later.
Today, as the male population thrust themselves into the 21st century a seemingly
more rigorous hygiene routine is in place.
It is not just systematic personal hygiene that is top priority in the noughties
Fashion - Hulls Next Top Model? Well, Perhaps Not ... By Jo Allison
As an aspiring fashion journalist I was wiggling around with excitement when my friend Lucy asked me to doing some modelling for a fashion designer friend of hers..I just wasn't entirely prepared for the whole model experience.
Two o'clock on a Tuesday afternoon and I'm nervously waiting at Beverley bus station for my friend to arrive. Sunglasses on, little wheelie suitcase in hand.
Fashion - Punk; Thirty Years On By Bekki Stephenson
Thirty years ago, gig tickets cost 50p, a pint of beer 15p and 20 cigarettes 30p.
There were only three television channels, all of which shut down at midnight and
the greatest fashion accessories were 4-inch, break-your-neck platforms.
Indeed, in 1976 the world of iPods, satellite navigation, X boxes, and video phones
seemed almost impossible. Perhaps not half
Fashion - A Voyage of Vintage Discovery In Hull By Jo Allison
The world's fashion capitals have never to my knowledge once included the lovely
English northern city of Hull, but perhaps this is about to change.
Hull, not notorious for its fashion sense (unless you are a fan of extensive
gold jewellery, tracksuits with the obligatory tucked in socks or small scraps
of brightly coloured lycra masquerading as tops) has always had a underground
Fashion - A Bohemian Revolution By Jo Allison Photographs by Cilla, Fashion Show Gallery at Lattitude 27th February 2006 by Paul Broadbent
A little shop of heaven, just down Newland Ave.
Jo had been traipsing around Hull for three hours and rummaged through just about every
clothing rail in Hull.
She had a big night out coming up that weekend and needed that elusive fashionista party dress.
The only problem was she really couldn't find a thing.
She dreamed of looking like a model,

Fashion - If You Haven't Got it, Flaunt It By Jo Allison
David Bailey's most recent project, Democracy, takes a frank, naked view of the real human body. Just what we need in our aesthetically obsessed society.
For too long now skinny has been beautiful, airbrushing a prerequisite.
The fashion world is perhaps one of the worst culprits for warping our perception
of the human body, but the latest offering from
Fashion - Trendy Traditionalists By Jo Allison
Lost your patriotic sense of what it means to be British? Do not despair.
As Gordon Brown urges us to celebrate Britain, Jo Allison re-introduces us to our classically cool English Heritage, from traditional tea to quaint seaside holidays.
Queuing is undoubtedly an extremely English, if somewhat boring occurrence.
However, it can be rather enlightening.
While queuing in the Post Office, I
Fashion - Platform News By Bekki Stephenson
From disco-inspired, glittering soles to five-inch wooden heels, platform shoes are destined to get you noticed.
It is no surprise then that they were all over the catwalk this season.
From post-war inspired cork soles to seventies inspired disco-classics, the runway was flooded with
platform shoes this season. After so many seasons of flowing, dainty designs a
shift towards a style less
Fashion - Fur Goodness Sake By Bekki Stephenson
Supermodel Elle McPherson has backed out of a £1 million contract with luxury
fur company Blackglama over fears that she will be targeted by anti-fur extremists.
But should we really ban fur? Or are we being manipulated by anti-fur movements?
I like fur. I don't wear it very often, partly due to the unforgiving looks of

The new vintage clothing shop set to make a big impact in Hull city centre.
Trinity Market, Hull (Opposite Trinity Church. Mon - Sat 9am-5pm)
When the terms Retro or Vintage are linked with clothes, thoughts of over priced charity shop
