PingHe – This is our second season at Fashion Scout, last season, PingHe’s first collection picked up several new stockists including Harvey Nicholas so we’re quite excited about what will happen this season and we will be exhibiting during Paris Fashion Week. PingHe is body-conscious and flatters the female shape – winter is about resistanceContinue reading

I love going to presentations because you never quite know what to expect and a good invitation will always give you an impression of what to expect. I’ve been a great fans of Tamara and Natasha Surguladze, the Georgian twins that makeup TataNaka for many years and I always look forward to their presentation as theyContinue reading

Yellow is all over the high street today. You can see it in the shop windows of French Connection and the moment that you walk into  Zara it’s a sea of yellow. I’m going to wear yellow – it’s been so grey I feel need an injection of vitamin C and somehow a yellow dressContinue reading

I had a wonderful AW14 London Fashion Week. I styled two shows, Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch and PingHe and both shows went extremely well! I saw quite a few shows on behalf of  the American magazine – The Untitled Magazine as I’m their UK Fashion Editor. It was important for me to see asContinue reading

I’ve known Helen Clinch and Myra Nigris since they first launched Hemyca in 2009. For it’s 9th season Hemyca has unveiled its most accomplished collection yet – they’ve taken their best elements and clearly defined their brand.  This AW14 they showed at the BFC Canon Cinema and Presentation Space at Somerset House. Think structural silhouettes,Continue reading

Every fashion week I seem to fall in love. I’ve been styling Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch for about 12 seasons and I can’t help but adore the designers that I’m working. It’s often the designer first show after graduation – so it’s such a wonderful moment to share in a designers life. This seasonContinue reading

Yulia Kondranina graduated from Central St Martins MA in 2012. I first met Yuila  while styling the Ones to Watch AW 13 – it’s still one of my favourite collections. Julia was awarded Fashion Scout’s spring/summer 2014 Merit Award – that collection didn’t have any fringing but it was textured, there were crocheted dresses featuringContinue reading

Ryan Lo’s collections always make me happy – it’s always girly and there is something pink. The event took place at the Topshop space at the Tate Modern and there was a huge queue to see the presentation. This season there was a cowgirl, a modern Oklahoma vibe to the collection with lots of separatesContinue reading

I’m styling two shows this season, PingHe and Fashion Scout’s  The Ones to Watch.  Yesterday we had the Fashion Scout model casting at the Freemason’s Hall in the same room that will be transformed into the main catwalk space.  It’s a great opportunity for many designers to see so many models:  several hundred models showContinue reading

No matter what you wear your hair is one of your best accessories. I love having my hair coloured and it’s not something I’ve ever attempted to do myself. I know too many people who have horror stories – one friend had an allergic reaction and her face swelled up and she was looking unrecognisableContinue reading

Is toast back, has it become popular again? You can get cheese on toast at Rough Trade and even Dishoom offers a Chilli Cheese Toast – Cheddar melt on white bloomer. I keep meeting people who are so anti toast and anti carbs – it’s become so fashionable and almost a bit of a status symbol toContinue reading

I love this salon! At Cheeky on Redchurch Street, you can get your nails done while having something delicious to eat. If you have a full manicure they give you a Cheeky nail polish of your choice to take home! It’s a very modern throwback to the old-fashioned beauty parlour. It’s a place that peopleContinue reading

On the 7th of January 2014, Superdry had an epic show at The Old Sorting as part of London Collection: Men AW14. As soon as you walked into the venue you were offered endless rum mojitos and lychee and blackberry martinis – it felt like a club. Suddenly there was this huge rumbling sound near theContinue reading
