I recently met with the lovely Leon Bailey Green. He is an online marketing and branding consultant. He is also the director of marketing for OSOYOU. OSOYOU is one stop shop which helps shoppers navigate their way round the internet. If you’re looking for a little black dress OSOYOU is going to give you a…Continue reading


I’ve always loved platform shoes. Being only 5′2″ high shoes make me feel powerful (and taller) but it’s the platform or wedge that really works for me. I think if I had a high arch I would have loved the stiletto heel. Marni patent leather wedges Platforms have been around forever and I mean centuries.…Continue reading


Most stylists & their assistants know how to steam and iron. I love steamers. I’m not big on ironing but it’s important to know how to iron a shirt. If you can iron a shirt while it’s still slightly damp it will wrinkle less and look nice and crisp. On occasion I’ve used a shirt…Continue reading

Love this! It’s a remix by 19 year old Nick Bertke (a.k.a Pogo, Pogotron). The track is almost entirely made up of sounds sampled from Disney’s 1951 animated classic, Alice in Wonderland and the track is available free to download on his Last FM page! Remixing is a lot like fashion styling – looking at…Continue reading


I like going to the Debenham’s press day, it’s quite impressive as it was in a big marquee right in central London. They show womenswear, lingerie, accessories and homeware. I usually like how it’s merchandised and the how each section is theme based. I met Eric Van Peterson a few years ago, on a shoot.…Continue reading


This is my new assistant on her first day! Stephanie’s visiting London for the summer. She’s from the States but would love to live in Europe. Being a fashion assistant is quite a bit of work. There are lots of errands to do and sometimes we have very short notice to prep a job, but…Continue reading


I was running some errands and came across this shop – it’s funny how you pass a street all the time and then one day it’s like you’re seeing it for the first time. This shop has been here for over 20 years. All the garments are so beautifully cut and the linings are just…Continue reading


Stonefoxx performed at the O2 Arena – they’re the opening act for Shane Ward’s UK tour! Of course I’m biased because I’ve known them for a couple of years and I just want everyone to dance around listening to them on the radio! Stacy, Lizzy and Gem! We watched Shane Ward from a private box…Continue reading


I saw DJ S.O.L. and just had to take her picture. I love all the colours in this picture – it’s so eclectic & vibrant.


I’m very excited that I’ve been invited to give a lecture at the Barbican as part of The House of Victor & Rolf events! The lecture will be on July 24th about personal style. I’m also looking forward to seeing the exhibition as I saw a Victor & Rolf exhibition in 2003 at the Musée…Continue reading


Puma launched The Reality Bag a while back in January 2008. I’m quite partial to PUMA bags, and I have a black one that I love but it’s started to look a bit tattered, so I don’t use it but I can’t get rid of it. I saw The Reality Bag at the Puma shop…Continue reading


I haven’t been to Camden for ages on a Sunday. I forgot how much I liked it: the people, the tourists who’ve never seen a Goth before and all the market stalls. It’s still a great place to find things for a shoot. I’ve found so many cool things in Camden from martial arts equipment…Continue reading


I’m a sucker for leather gloves. The picture above is the shop front window of the House of Cashmere in the Burlington Arcade (in London). They have some great light weight leather gloves in fabulous colours. I like wearing gloves especially on the tube when everything feels so dirty. Oh, and I love wearing driving…Continue reading


I’m not very confident stopping people in the street and asking them if I can take their picture. I’m trying to be a bit braver but every now and then fashion gets the best of me and I can’t help but stop someone. I saw this girl – a drama student on the escalator and…Continue reading


The Story of The Supremes from the Mary Wilson Collection The Supremes – Mary, Diana and Flo, and later Cindy Birdsong, Jean Terrell, Lynda Lawrence, Scherrie Payne and Susaye Green were glamorours, strong and sexy looking women. I can’t wait to see this exhibition, it’s on until October 19th at the Victoria and Albert Museum…Continue reading


While on my way to dinner I spotted this Nissan Figaro that’s for sale. I know it’s not practical: I couldn’t fit my luggage in it, I only have a license for an automatic, I don’t like parallel parking – which is all one does in London. But it’s Barbie pink and so cute! I…Continue reading


The dog is no longer man’s best friend but has become a delightful fashion accessory. Over the past few years I’ve seen quite a few fluffy pink lap dogs. I find the dogs quite amusing, cute and slightly odd – all at the same time. I must admit I’m kind of drawn to the dog,…Continue reading
