Location Scouting

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!

Hackney WickED

20110730 085938 Hackney WickED

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.

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.

The Industry – Interviewing Kate Nash

Posted by Rebekah Roy on July 27th, 2011

KateNash TheIndustryLondon RebekahRoy The Industry   Interviewing Kate Nash

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.

I went to visit Corrie Nielson at her studio at Somerset House and had a sneaky peak at her new SS12 collection. Of course I can’t show you any of the new pieces, you’ll just have to wait until London Fashion Week. Corrie won Fashion Fringe in 2010.

I love that Corrie’s pieces have a sense of drama. They make you want to dress up. We were chatting about how people still dress up for the opera and how nice that is: dressing up just makes everyday feel more special!

Today I went to visit designer Kirsty Ward. Kirsty is such a fun girl and I love her bold accessories. She’s been quite busy working on her new collection, which she’ll be exhibiting during London Fashion Week at Somerset House. She’s also working on production – all the accessories are made by hand!

I used one of Kirsty’s pieces in this shoot for Phoenix Magazine with Yasmin.

I’ve been customizing t-shirts for a shoot. We’ve been using lots of crystals, chains and pearls! It’s quite amazing how embelishment can completely change a look.

Fabric Shops on Brick Lane

20110716 082417 Fabric Shops on Brick Lane
There are quite a few fabric shops along Brick Lane. This shop had a small front entrance and the shop was very narrow but it was such an unusually long shop that by the time you got to the back you couldn’t hear Brick Lane anymore – it was like being lost in a fabric forest.

I really enjoy visiting designers in their studio and chatting about their collections. I’ve been a big fan of Bora Aksu for many years. I went to visit him today to choose a selection of garments that I’m going to use for the Elite Model London fashion show.

I love how Bora uses different textures, fabric weights, knit and embellishment. It always come together so beautifully.

For several seasons Bora has used tights in his show. This autumn we should be able to purchase them as they will be launching a transactional website. They are also introducing a pre-collection for autumn/winter 2012.

20110712 072621 Model Height

I was at Elite Models in London today for a meeting and saw this very cool height chart – I never thought a model agency would have a custom branded height chart! I’m styling a show for the Elite Model Look 2011, which features a selection of Elite’s newest models. It should be quite exciting for all the new models as it will be their very first fashion show. The contest was started in 1983…

…and to enter you have to be 172 cm or 5 feet 6.4304 inches!
