LONDON — Despite London Fashion Week being overshadowed by a terrorist attack, the industry kept calm and carried on. Buyers from both sides of the Atlantic largely praised the collections for their diversity, eccentricity and creativity. The five days of shows wrapped up on Tuesday, with buyers viewing collections brimming with pastels, ruffles, bold patterns, enlarged silhouettes, floral prints, tailoring and shine.
Amanda Wakeley has a friend who upped sticks and moved to Uraguay, bought a ranch and now splits her time between London and riding horses in the South American wild. Pictures of her friend on horseback and musings on her new way of life were the basis for Wakeley’s spring collection, which was rich with subtle references to the Americas.
FAMILY TIES: It was quite the family affair at the Tommy Hilfiger show in London tonight — both on and off the catwalk. Before the show opened with a trifecta of Hadids — Gigi, Bella and Anwar — Rafferty Law was joined on the front row by Sadie Frost, his mother and date for the evening. “I’m sure most people would think it’s very uncool for him to bring his mum along [to the Tommy show],” the actress, producer and former fashion designer told WWD.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
