Corrie Nielsen Spring/Summer 2012

20111001 041834 Corrie Nielsen Spring/Summer 2012

I went to visit designer Corrie Nielsen at her studio in the vaults in Somerset House. Corrie’s SS12 collection was inspired by Oscar Wilde’s gothic novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Her love of mens tailoring is fused with a Japanese aesthetic, which works beautifully.

Every piece in Corrie’s collection tells a story and it’s a particular woman with a sense of grandure who wears her clothes. Although the collection is dramatic and seems like it is from another era there’s a certain modernity to the cut and the white shirt is classic Nielsen – you can often spot Corrie herself in crisp white crisp shirt..

Ziad Ghanem Spring Summer 2012!

Posted by Rebekah Roy on September 28th, 2011

I was really looking forward to seeing Ziad Ghanem’s show at Fashion Scout as I hadn’t seen one of his shows for several season as I was usually casting for another show when his was on.

This show was one of my favourite shows. It felt happy, like an event, and it was one! To start with there was a kerfuffle in the photographers’ pit, but the show was like a wedding with an entourage of guests including a child bridesmaid that the crowd adored. What I enjoyed most about the show was the audience participation – when a dress came out that they loved, they clapped and oohed and awed. It was just fun to see people excited about a show!

Last season there was so much talk about diversity on the catwalk and at Ziad’s show there’s nothing but variety, which makes for very consistent casting, oddly enough!

I love his dresses from the back, they are so sensual.

The Steamer by Fridja

Posted by Rebekah Roy on September 27th, 2011

20110929 092534 The Steamer by Fridja

At London Fashion Weekend I didn’t expect to find a streamer that’d I’d love – but these ones are so light and cute. Plus they come in six different colours! Often at a studio you have the big heavy professional steamers that take a bit of time to heat up, but also not every studio has a steamer. At a shoot we spend a lot of time steaming and pressing the garments so having a good steamer, iron and ironing board is essential. The Fridja steamer will actually fit into my suitcase with the rest of my kit so it’s quite easy to bring with me.

London Fashion Weekend & ShopStyle

My team and I had a great time at ShopStyle at London Fashion Weekend. It was great to meet so many people who just loved fashion. After styling 3 shows at London Fashion Week it’s great to meet the customer – the end user! It’s really important not to forget who fashion is really for! It was truly a weekend of best friends and I met so girls who come to London Fashion Weekend each season for a girly day out.

We had so many students  come by the stand who were interested in studying fashion.We even had a girl who was about age 11 who’d made her own dress and who hopes to become a fashion designer.  I was really surprized how many young girls want to work in the fashion industry and of course I understand why. The day was not only about giving out styling tips, but advice about what a fashion stylist does, where to study, what short courses to take, how to get an internship and understanding the different jobs that exist in the fashion industry.

Sunflowers & The LEGO Greenhouse

After London Fashion Weekend I was passing through Covent Gardens and saw this LEGO greenhouse by Sebastian Bergne. It was commissioned by LEGO as part of the London Design Festival 2011 The greenhouse is full of sunflowers. I was so happy when I saw the greenhouse – it’s not suppose to be there and is strangely comforting.
