Fashion Scoops: Cinematic Moment... Pack It Up, Pack It In... On the 'Net...

In fashion, everything can change with a single encounter. Take Yigal Azrouël, for instance. The designer was introduced to budding director Chiara Clemente...

The first recipient of the award — which is funded by Treacy and England's Ascot Racecourse — is Liesamarie Schulte-Kitzing, a 22-year-old fashion student. Schulte-Kitzing was chosen for the award by the fashion illustrator Richard Gray and Lee Lapthorne, the founder of On|Off, which stages off-schedule shows during London Fashion Week. "[Schulte-Kitzing's] work was very dynamic, but also very disciplined," said Lapthorne. "We felt we were selecting what Isabella would have wanted. She was very much in our minds."

ILLUSTRATED NEWS: It seems London has caught the art bug that's worked its way through the collections of labels from Miu Miu to Louis Vuitton to Jimmy Choo this spring. On Friday, Topshop launched a capsule collection of T-shirts by the British illustrator Kate Moross (not to be confused with Topshop's other high-profile collaborator, Kate Moss). The eight-piece line includes T-shirts and sweatshirts adorned with psychedelic prints of birds, diamonds and "Yellow Submarine"-style text. Prices range from 20 pounds, or about $39 at current exchange, for a tank top, through to 30 pounds, or $60, for a sweatshirt.

Moross, who has designed artwork for bands including Klaxons and Mystery Jets, as well as commercial illustrations for Sony, also has a collaboration with Nike in the pipeline.

Meanwhile, London ready-to-wear label PPQ has teamed up with London-based illustrator Hannah Bays, who has created PPQ T-shirts and tote bags printed with black-and-white illustrations of pin-up girls in stripy stockings. Bays has previously designed record sleeves for Pete Doherty's band, Babyshambles, and London band Dirty Pretty Things. The T-shirts and bags will be sold exclusively in PPQ's London store, on Conduit Street.
