Lately I’ve been obssessed with all things punk – which I think is actually because of the Queen’s Jubliee and watching the Punk Britannia series.

Stefan has always been a great pattern cutter – this season you notice the innovative detail as everything is more subtle. Orschel Read explains "one thing IContinue reading

Kate Nash wrote this song, recorded it and did the video in one day.  She’d been doing filming and press interviews all day and at 8pm she asked me to go to her house and find her some bright coloured dresses as she was going to shoot a video later that night – but firstContinue reading
