Fashion news is back from its summer holiday and eager to be back delivering all the fashion happenings before the weekend. here's everything you need to know this week...
First, two big business departures from key e-tailers. Sarah Curran announced that she would be parting ways with My-Wardrobe, the site which she founded 2006. Curran had increasingly taken a back seat in recent years, leaving the day-to-day running of the company to Global CEO David Worby and Fashion Director Camilla Borgonovo. Curran told Vogue, "I wanted a new challenge - I'm not one to coast along, and my decision to leave coincided with some reshuffling and changes in top-tier management and new investment - it just felt like the right time". In slightly more mysterious circumstances, Kate Bostock has left ASOS after just 7 months as Director of Product and Trading. In the aftermath of the announcement, ASOS CEO Nick Robertson explained that 'culturally we are very different'. Bostock's departure doesn't seem to have upset investors though; the ASOS share price remains unchanged.

Katie Grand's insight into what it's like to work with Miuccia Prada is really fascinating. Highlights include Grand's own description of the rails of Miu Miu and Prada which she owns, not to mention the 'maybe 1,000 pairs of Prada shoes' which she has to her name. The article celebrates Miuccia Prada's modelling debut in the latest issue of LOVE, to celebrate the magazine's 5th anniversary.

1. Dye your hair grey
According to Rihanna, 'Grey is the new black!'. She made her maxim true by getting extensions in a pewter hue. if you needed any further proof that grey could be a fabulous new hair colour option, then check out the latest issue of Vogue in which the magazine's Fashion Feaures Director, Sarah Harris, spends a week cavorting in at Cannes in Cavalli, each looked topped off by her famously silver mane.

It may have a rep for being the home of many super traditional brands, but Sophia Webster is shaking things up down at the Burlington Arcade with a fun new pop-up shop which is in situ for six weeks. Given how kitschly fun her LFW presentations are, it's a great opportunity to get a bricks and mortar experience of her fast-rising brand.
