Fashion UK(www.fuk.co.uk) is the oldest and boldest of UK fashion websites.  It’s a major voice supporting new design talent and challenging the old guard of British Fashion.  Now 10 years old and with a new look this month PSFK’s Simon King caught up with founder Marian Buckley in a Soho wine bar to chat fashion,  cutting out the gossip:

PSFK – Congratulations on 10 years of FUKing,  What inspired you to start FUK in 1996?

Fuk first went live 21 November 1995. We were inspired initially by the rich variety of street styles around us – as Londoners we have a fantastic heritage of style subcultures and this,  along with the way the web is ideal for fashion because it is immediate and accessible. We especially keen to bring down the barriers put up by fashion print magazines – long lead times so the info and photos are always months old and dictatorial editorial which doesn’t pay respect to the way folk create their own trends.
