I really like attending On|Off – there are so many new designers there – I say new but many of them have been designing for years. The venue is set up in a very welcoming way: you feel free to look at a collection and chat with the designer and of course it’s a beautiful venue.
There’s a bus right near the V&A that drops you off right in front of the Royal Academy of Arts, so it’s very easy to get there after seeing a show at the BFC tent.
Lee Lapthorne at the final day of On|Off -this was the first break he’s had in weeks! He’s the creative director and producer of On Off.
Deborah Henning: I really liked Deborah’s first collection, so it great to see her at On Off! All of her garments are manufactured in the UK, they’re well made, feminine and slightly edgy!
Kerry Nixon is the sweetest and most lovable girl that you’ll ever meet. She also has a super cute accent and is wearing one of Rizvis’ headpieces! She’s one half of Vidler and Nixon – Stefan Vidler is the other half. Cinched waistlines and full skirts – dramatic silhouettes – are their trademark with key pieces including their full-skirted ‘Marie’ coat – which I have been wearing in my dreams. I think I actually dress better in my dreams. And yes, I do dream about fashion…
Richard Sorger creates luxury beaded and embroidered garments. They are quite stunning and I just used one of his dresses in Luxure Magazine. Richard’s celebrity clients include Courtney Love, Cindy Crawford, Bjork, Kirsten Dunst and Jennifer Lopez – quite the list!! And now he’s off to exhibit in Paris!
Courtney Blackman & I are going to have a private hat party!!
This is Nina from Nina and Lola – Nina looks great in hats but Lola (not here today doesn’t really wear hats…) Nina is one of my favourite people – you might think I have a lot of favourite people and it’s true I do – but really the list isn’t that long – beside why would I want to know people that I don’t love and adore -life is short right? Anyway Nina is very cool and fun to hang out with – she’s sussing out clothes for her on-line shop Nina and Lola.
