I love scouting for locations. It’s important to find the right set up for your shoot: it can make all the difference! You have to remember that one day you can have a beautiful sky but that can all change on your shoot day. I love these red apples but will they be there in two weeks? It’s also good to have a backup plan in case of rain!
It’s also important to remember that you need a place to set everything up and electricity for hair!

I’m often visiting Hackney Wick as I work with several designers and photographers whose studios are based there. The streets are usually empty and it often feels quite deserted. Today the area was vibrant and full of life. People were spilling out of galleries, and music was everywhere – today was Hackney WickED! This is the fourth year of this open day art festival. There’s also live music, food and of course art! It’s really nice to just be able to wander around and see the artists work in their studios. There’s also a suicidal rabbit and a Council Estate’s Princess and the Pea, created by artist Emma Critch!

Today I went to visit fashion designer Georgia Hardinge in her new studio. I was quite exciting to see the prints for her new collection. It was Friday afternoon and they were having cake and champagne to celebrate a little leaving party for one of Georgia’s staff.
These images are from her AW11 collection. Can’t wait to see her show at London Fashion Week!

I loved swings when I was little and I’m still partial to the occasional ride at a festival so I was quite delighted to find this swing in Allen Gardens.

As Kate Nash’s stylist I got to interview her for The Industry’s first quarterly event at Swarovski Crystallized Lounge. Kate gives great interviews as she is very articulate and passionate about everything she does. One of the topics that was discussed was the lack of women in the music industry and how Kate is trying to change that. Kate’s started Rock ‘n’ Roll for Girls After School Music Club, which encourages young girls to write music and play instruments. She also teaches the girls that there are many types of beauty, and a lot of the questions were about how modern female pop stars are supposed to look according to the record labels.
It’s quite fun to interview someone that you know but it’s also challenging. You want to to let the audience know how amazing the person is. I tried to ask questions that I thought would interest the audience but I also asked Kate questions about things that I wanted people to know about her. When we think about musicans we usually just think about their music – which is obvious and normal but Kate always has quite a few different projects that she’s working on, including starting her own record label and acting in films recently!
The video of the interview will be posted exclusively next week to Harper’s Bazaar.
