It was quite a bustling event!  You could also see the Paul Smith 531 cycling collection which includesContinue reading

It was great to see The Heartbreaks at Madam Jojo’s as I hadn’t see them perform for quite a while. The audience went nuts for the Lancashire band, and Matthew Whitehouse gave a stellar performance – I love how he moves on stage. You can see them in Manchester at The Deaf Institute on SaturdayContinue reading

Kate Nash looked every inch the multi instrumentalist, platinum selling artist that she is at the Billboard‘s pre-Lollapalooza Bash. No matter how amazing she looks, or whatever she is wearing  – Kate always says the best accessory is a guitar – everything looks better with a guitar!

I went to Topman to check out Agi & Sam – The Owls collection. It’s a twenty piece sportswear inspired collection.  While I was looking at the collection I met a lawyer who was shopping and trying on the yellow trousers. They were a bit small for him but he had a friend who heContinue reading

The UK Fashion & Textile Awards 2013 is a very prestigious event and was held at One Mayfair. The awards were presented by HRH The Princess Royal, President of UKFT, at the gala ceremony hosted by Myleene Klass. It was a black tie event – I always love to see people so dressed up! IContinue reading

I love receiving presents so when I received some Molton Brown I was quite excited – I think everyone loves Molton Brown. Then I realized the scent was Pink Pepperpod? What? Really did I want to smell like the sauce that goes with my steak? To my surprise the scent was refreshing, stimulating with hintsContinue reading

I haven’t seen a Manish Arora show since he left London. He first showed in London in 2005 but had already previously shown in India and Hong Kong. I was fortunate enought to see his SS13 show in Paris at Les Beaux-Arts de Paris and it was quite a packed house. For the most partContinue reading

I loved styling this shoot – it was so much fun and it was great to see everything come together .Often I have less than a week to prep a shoot so when you have a few weeks it feels like a luxury but really it gives you the time to properly prepare and callContinue reading

When I heard that Jane Pratt was launching a new UK site called XOJane.co.uk I was quite excited. I’d alway been a huge fan of Jane Magazine. I loved their cover stories – they were the first ones to introduce the make-under and that always appealed to me. Jane magazine was launched in September 1997Continue reading

I’ve been a fan of Olivia Rubin for quite some time, and I’ve got quite a few of her dresses in my wardrobe, so I was quite happy to find out that she’s designed a collection entitled ‘Postcards From‘ for Dorothy Perkins. She’s previously done collaborations with ASOS, Oli.co.uk, Very.co.uk and Dune. Olivia is knownContinue reading

I don’t think I ever realized that Los Angeles would feel like a desert – hot and dry with mountain peaks that could actually be snow covered in the winter. It’s been really hot and sunny, and most of our shoot time as been spent outside – which is great. It’s always a bit disappointingContinue reading

I first met Gabby Young at London Fashion Week and you can’t help but adore her. She’s a big fan of Vauxhall Fashion Scout and was seeing quite a few shows there before heading off to the US to do a tour. One of her favourite fashion shows was Inbar Spector so it was onlyContinue reading

I’ve always liked Nicola Roberts and I quite like how she’s been dressing this past year. She looks like she’s having more fun and I think she looks great on the cover. She’s just launched her new album and now there’s a video of her single Beat Of My Drum. Although I like her lookContinue reading

Love Austra‘s video The Beat & The Pulse. They are are Canadian band: Katie Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski  and bassist Dorian Wolf. Love Katie’s voice – she studied opera when she was 10 and plays viola and piano! How cool is she!

I went to see The Receeders play at the Monarch in Camden. It was great to see such a cool band in such an intimate venue.
