This past fashion week has been my busiest one yet. Between NY and London I headed up 9 shows and assisted on 6! All in all it was another wonderfully exhausting couple of weeks. If I could sum up the major trend between them all, it would be the season of the bushy eyebrow! BrowsContinue reading

I hardly got to see any shows this season but I did manage to catch Esprit de Corps ready to wear collection by Horace. I really enjoyed their show (designers Adam Entwistle and Emma Hales ). I loved the wigs and the clean ghostly skin. Signature sculpted leather panels were featured throughout the collection mixedContinue reading

Strolling down Oxford Street amidst LFW madness I happened to notice French Connection’s new advertising campaign and for some reason I just can’t get it out of my head since. The big bearded fella is etched on my mind and I just can’t work out why. Up until quite recently I was working part-time atContinue reading

I love styling for Alice Palmer, I’ve styled shows for several seasons and each year everything just keeps getting stronger and stronger! Alice is a very cool girl and I don’t know of many knitters who use a draping technique or who are quite sculptural – this is not your grandmother’s knitwear! We don’t tendContinue reading

I just love working William Tempest. This is his third season at London Fashion Week, showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. The collection is beautiful, very red carpet and also easy to wear. Many of Wil’s dresses have a hidden corset so they nip you in at the waist – you feel strong, powerful, sexy…and yetContinue reading

Backstage isn’t as crazy as people always think it is. Sometimes it’s quite calm and fun, and Prophetik was like this so I found styling their show to be a pleasure. The whole week was like this. The team had all come from Franklin, Tennessee at the beginning of the week. We had casting, fittings,Continue reading

Alex Box is a rare talent. Lots of make up artists dream of doing cool, edgy colourful make up but they never quite succeed. It often can look over done, or try-hard or just plain wrong. It’s a very fine line bewteen what is beautiful and ugly. I’ve worked with Alex over the years andContinue reading

So many tickets for London Fashion Week! I love going to see fashion shows but this season I’m styling 6 shows so I’m not sure how many I’ll get to see!

It’s all kicked off in London. Fashion Week has begun and I for one am excited – it’s a good indication it’s going to be a goodun when Kate Moss takes her front row seat on Day 1. I’m not sure about you but I was a little un-inspired with New York; I don’t recallContinue reading

Everyone thinks that Fashion Week is super busy but it’s really the weeks that lead up to it that are so exciting. I always feel privileged to see a designer’s collection come together. You might have seen someone’s sketches and inspiration months ago, and looked at fabric swatches and then finally the toile. Oh, toContinue reading

MAN RAZE is a new London based alternative/nuwave rock band formed by iconic lead guitarist Phil Collen of the multi-platinum selling rockband Def Leppard. The thrashing three piece also consists of punk band forerunner Paul Cook from the revolutionary Sex Pistols, and rhythm rocker Simon Laffy, bass player from Collen’s former glamband, Girl. Rumour hasContinue reading

What really drives fashion week, apart from the collections on the runway are the celebrities that attend the shows. Which celebrities will grace the front row this season I wonder. I predict Alexa Chung will feature heavily at the international shows. Rumour has it style icon Olivia Palermo will be in London (again) and IContinue reading

London a la Mode is a pop up showroom held at Liberty House, introducing British brands to domestic and international buyers, press and stylists. Running from the 2nd-26th February, this uniquely collaborative showroom, owned by the brands it represents, includes an exciting mix of British talent, including Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Viking Wong, Alice Palmer andContinue reading

Daisy de Villeneuve will be backstage at Vauxhall Fashion Scout this season You might be expecting to see her on the catwalk as we’ve seen her in Gap and Uniqlo campaigns but really Daisy will be illustrating in her trademark faux-naif style backstage this season. You’ll spot her at the VSF Merit Award Winner’s showsContinue reading

I got to meet quite a few students in their final year of a three year programme, Fashion Management & Marketing BA in Epsom. These students will be the first graduates of the programme – there are only 17 students so they’ve been quite fortunate as there are now 70 students in first year. IContinue reading

I love Finsk shoes – these ones are really press samples and not commercial pieces but they’re just so cool. Julia’s work is very architectural but it’s also very wearable. Manolo Blahnik has described her work as "exquisite, divine and perfect." Julia’s even done a collection for Topshop that were exclusively at the Oxford CircusContinue reading

Gant has opened its first UK flagship store in London on Regent Street and last night they celebrated the store opening. The menswear mainline collection is on the ground floor and on first floor there is women, children and home. Gant is quite a preppy brand but it doesn’t feel quite feel American Preppy –Continue reading
