Doorways, hidden paths, secrets & stories. Images like this always inspire me with ideas for shoots. Doors have always been magical: “Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat-hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw.”…Continue reading

I’ve been tagged by The Fashion Assistant to reveal my seven spring songs. I’m not sure about seven spring songs besides it’s summer – and I’m not the kind of girl who lies around on the beach and dreams the day away. Anyway this is what I’ve been listening to: Blondie – Sunday Girl The…Continue reading

We make fun of men who wear lifts in their shoes – I think in general life is difficult for the shorter man. King Louis XIV was only 5 foot 4 inches but some of his shoes were 6 inches high. During the seventeenth century, high heels signified the wealth and privilege of men and…Continue reading

Erika Trotzig recently collaborated with Studio Private and photographer Yuval Hen. This is one of the images from their exhibition in London. I just love the feel of this shot, the light & the yellow background. I want to know more about the girl – it feels like a painting. Yellow backgrounds often remind me…Continue reading

I love these bags, very traditional with a twist – a modern day classic. I hate computer bags – they’re so ugly, so why would I want to put my lovely little lap top in just anything? Oh to have a Violet May python clutch for my laptop! I thought I’d grow tired of silver…Continue reading

MINE all MINE Sample Sale Saturday the 28th of June “I gave my love a paper cut” and other such stories

I’m sure many of you watched Panorama: Primark: On the Rack last night. I like when I go into a shop and there is signage about the shop’s ethical policies. I want to believe them but I have this nagging feeling …it’s too good to be true feeling…I should know better. In my head it’s…Continue reading

nipples_sitc

The secrets inside a stylist’s kit are really not so secretive – sometimes there are just subjects that we don’t talk about too often – like nipples. You’ll notice in different magazines and advertising women with and without nipples. In Sex and the City you see lots of nipples and in M&S advertising women don’t…Continue reading

She spent four season interning with Alexander McQueen and in 2007/8 she worked with Gareth Pugh as a pattern maker. These images are from Ada’s graduate collection. I love the oversized shapes…Continue reading

I went to the opening preview of The Viktor & Rolf exhibition at the Barbican. It was quite amazing! I love the doll’s house – I think every girl loves a doll’s house. I had so many dolls when I was little, and my mum would make matching clothes for me and my dolls. I…Continue reading

So if you’re feeling like summer’s here and you’re already wearing your favourite Luella floral dress then it just might be time to customize your scooter! I love these flowers! I used to decorate my bicycle when I lived in Montreal. I don’t tent to cycle in London as I find that I’m always carrying…Continue reading

I love how these two girls are dressed. They look like the kind of people you want as friends. Trustworthy, cool and fun! It’s interesting that a bright colourful dress, a groovy head band and a red hand bag can covey a message – so if clothing is a language- a method of communication –…Continue reading

pig_in_boots_404_677893c

Who can resist a pig in boots? Apparently this little piggy has never liked mud. She’d stand alone shaking in her pen while her mother & other siblings went out to explore the farm. Soon the owners, Debbie and Andrew Keeble noticed that she just didn’t like mud – they thought she might have mysophobia…Continue reading

At the RCA there are 32 postgraduate students in menswear, womenswear, knitwear, accessories, footwear and millinery who are showcasing their garments both on the catwalk and in a static exhibition. I didn’t get see any…Continue reading

They have so much energy and look like they’re having so much fun and of course the audience is totally captivated. Billy dived into the crowds during Turnaround and…Continue reading

Yesterday’s shoot was all about Wonderful Hair. I’ve never had hair extensions and have never had the desire to have them – until today that is. I love how Yulia looks while waiting for her hair to be done. Most models bring a book or something, occasionally I’ve known models who knit to pass the…Continue reading
