There are some people who have a gift of making you feel special, they take time when they speak with you and look you in the eye – it sounds so simple but it’s become so rare, so when it happens you fall under their spell and you can’t help but adore them. Joan BursteinContinue reading
PPQ on Conduit Street. There are so many people in fashion that are always trying to look hip and just end up looking pretentious and then there is the group of girls who are just super cool without trying and these four girls truly are the super cool! Model:Lianna Fowler Another cool girl from PopContinue reading
I met up with designer Karen Brost this morning at her London showroom. She’s presenting her new Autumn Winter collection to buyers this week and I had a private preview! It’s 80% classic luxury and 20% rock and roll – the details are in the leather buttons, “fox fur shoulder pads”, the fabrics and signatureContinue reading
I’ve had some really great fashion assistants over the years and for some odd reason, unknown to me they are often called Chloe or some form of Kate. Anyway my assistant Chloe is so hard working. She’s been running all over central London this week picking up and returning items. She has sore fingers fromContinue reading
Last night The Feeling played at the Porchester Hall. It’s beautiful location: it has an old world opulence of days gone by, with dark red velvet curtains, lots of English oak and walnut, and ten huge crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling. It’s quite an impressive building and it’s the type of place one wouldContinue reading
Some days are less exciting then others, and most people don’t realize how much running around a stylist does. I have three shoots this week so there has been lots of prep work to do. Today was a day full of errands and visiting PRs. I like visiting PRs and seeing all the clothes andContinue reading
I went to visit Jamie from Muks and chatted about her upcoming collection as she has lots of great sexy boots for next winter! Kate Moss was one of our her first customers since then, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Beyonce Knowles also wear Muks! Most importantly, Jamie has the most handsome and statuesque dogContinue reading
One of the wonderful perks of my job is going to lovely places for dinner and last night we had dinner at Gordon Ramsey’s at Claridge’s! The dinner was to celebrate a new range of shoes by Geox. The shoes have a unique cooling system, yes that sounds a bit odd but it’s meant toContinue reading
I love dresses and wearing a dress is my fashion preference. I’m also partial to shorts but that’s another story. Anyway dresses are simple and easy, and most women look good in a dress. We’re going to be seeing lots of floral for spring – it’s inevitable and always a great trend. Floral might notContinue reading
I really enjoyed watching Wim Wenders’ film Notebook On Cities And Clothes (1989): the story follows Yohji Yamamoto in Paris and Tokyo as he prepares for his Paris fashion show. The second image is a picture that I took of the film on my television screen. It’s a shot of Yohji Yamamoto editing all hisContinue reading
Liberty of London: Designs of Our Times Anna Buruma is the archivist at Liberty of London and she spoke at the V&A’s Friday evening talk. (You can see her in the 3rd image, she’s wearing a black dress with a red necklace). I wanted to go to this lecture because Liberty has been such anContinue reading
I had a great day shopping with Adele Silva. We were in Manchester for a photo call and managed to squeeze in a short but productive shopping trip at The Trafford Centre! I even got some great gloves from Reiss on sale! Adele is best known for playing the character Kelly Windsor in Emmerdale. PeopleContinue reading
I have always loved colourful shoes and tights. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s because I have small feet (size 37) and ok legs. Lately I’ve been very happy that I can buy colourful tights anywhere. I’ve always had to go to a stall at either Camden or Portobello market to find bright crazy coloursContinue reading
Fashion is everywhere and so many little girls are having fun being designers & stylists. There is a new fashion game by Mattel called Barbie iDesign; it’s an online fashion design game for girls with cool outfits and a runway show. It still reminds me a bit of paper dolls but a far more updatedContinue reading
So many people ask me why I moved to London. It’s a normal question but really it seems silly: I can’t imagine where else I’d like to be, although there are moments when I’d love to be in NYC. Right now, today, I can’t imagine being anywhere else but in London – I love LondonContinue reading
I think the most recent fashion design that’s so over before it’s even begun is Manolo Blahnik‘s slingback shoes – for men! In all truth I think they’re great and would love to use them in a shoot. I just can’t see them catching on for the masses – but do we really care aboutContinue reading
