Visiting Jakarta: Day 2

Today photographer Darren Black and set designer Sarah May and I gave a fashion talk to designers, stylists and photographers at The Femina Group office in central Jakarta today. We also met with the designer that we will be working during the next few days. Of course we managed to get in some good shopping today and we were quite inspired by all the designers that we saw, so much so that we've planned an extra editorial shoot on our last day. We went to the traditional department...

Celebrating 50 Years of Biba with Barbara Hulanicki at Bath in Fashion

I had been looking forward to styling this show for months. There were so many people involved as the clothes were original Biba pieces belonging to different collectors and one of  the main collectors had worked with Barbara Hulanicki at Biba. It was such a privilege to work with people's personal archives. What was interesting about Biba was that so many of the shapes were still relevant - there was still something modern about the outfits. I loved the tiny shoulders - everything...

Celebrating 50 years of Biba at Bath in Fashion

This year Bath in Fashion is celebrating 50 years of Biba with a catwalk show. I'm quite excited about styling the catwalk show as it's been an amazing experience to see so many original Biba pieces and to see how relevant they still are.  During Bath in Fashion on May 7th  Barbara Hulanicki will be interviewed by Hilary Alexander, former Fashion Director of the Telegraph and on May 8th the Biba Show will be held at the Ball Room at the Assembly Rooms venue.

Pinghe AW14 Backstage at London Fashion Week

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 resistance and you can see this in the luxurious fabrics: neoprene, pvc, leather, furs and wools. The colour palette was red, black, white and metallic. We...

Bath in Fashion Campaign Shoot 2014

Today I was up at 4:30am to go to Bath to style and art director a shoot for Bath in Fashion.  We were shooting real people who all had their own style and were representative of Bath from a music artist to a rugby player! One of my interns was so cute and stylish that we asked her if she'd like to be in the shoot and she did an amazing job.  You just never know what might happen on a shoot! Cute interns be prepared! I've been to Bath so many times and I never get bored of it. I love...

J Crew comes to the UK!

When I think of J Crew I think of basics - good affordable basics but not fashion, so I was very surprised that I liked so many looks and that there were pieces that I wanted to wear! I loved the print on print, bold colours and that everything was styled with a "vintage" necklace. The shapes are classic but it's the prints and the styling that gives them an aspirational "London Look". I grew up with my friends' mums wearing J Crew but this doesn't look anything like what...

Fashion Magazines!

One of my favourite things to do is fashion...

The Dior Cupcake?

Most of us can't really afford to own a piece of Dior so the alternative idea of a Dior cupcake might just be what you're looking for. If you'd like something delectable for a fashion friend these Dior Limited edition Cupcakes at Harrods for £19 might be the perfect...

Nestlé Kit Kat Commercial – “We Will Find You”

[youtube sk2Lfgh1c4Q 640 480] Every now and then I get to do a job that I'm quite delighted about. I've been eating Kit Kat bars since I was about three years old as it was a weekly treat when visiting the park and feeding the ducks. It always amazes me how food is associated with fond memories, and I was rather excited when I was asked to style a Kit Kat commercial. Once I heard what the campaign was for it only got better! This campaign is quite unique as six chocolate bar wrappers are...

William Tempest and River Island – Interview

I've styled for William Tempest for several years and he's always working on a variety of projects. A few seasons ago he did a range of dresses for John Lewis as part of their focus on emerging and established fashion talent including Yosman Yousefzada, milliner Philip Treacy and footwear designer Terry de Havilland. This is William's second high street collaboration. It's a 13-piece collection that's part of the British Fashion Council in conjunction with the River Island Design Forum...

Louise Roe and the Jergens Beauty Launch – Moisturize!

I styled the models for a mini catwalk show for Jergens and the lovely Louise Roe was the host. I'm a huge fan of Louise, I met her a few years ago when I was styling William Tempest's show in New York and she was hosting his dinner party. She's just one of those girls that you can't help but adore and she has a beautiful skin - perfect for a Jergens launch! Working in beauty has similarities, but it's very different than fashion as there just seems to be a slightly different attitude -...

Diet?

Love this ad. I saw it on the fitting room wall in one of my favourite vintage shops, Paper Dress...

Agent Provocateur Perfume Launch

I love perfume - who doesn't? Perfume is such a personal thing - it's hard to know what makes you like a certain scent. So I was quite looking forward to attending the launch of Agent Provocateur's three new perfumes at the new Rose Club in London. The new fragrances are based on the original three fragrances but they are lighter, more day time: Eau Provocateur, L'Agent and Maitresse. I met up with two friends at the event and we each had a favourite of the three perfumes so there...

Ecco Boots

I've always been a fan of Ecco walking shoes but I never really thought of them for heels so I was quite delighted when they sent me these heeled ankle boots. I was pretty sure that they were going to be comfortable but was still surprised to discover that I could wear them all day at a shoot and that my feet didn't ache at the end of the day. In 2008 Ecco launched the My World, My Style, My ECCO campaign shot with real people and started to grow their brand image and their customer...

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo & H&M

I really like both versions of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, based on Swedish author Stieg Larsson's novel. In David Fincher's  U.S. adaptation, with actress Rooney Mara-playing Lisbeth Salander you can't help but notice her understated look. It's the 12 piercings that she really had done and the short crazy girl fringe that makes the look fiece and slightly disturburing but the clothes are modern armour. They are tomboyish, rebellious and easy to wear. The author is Swedish, the...
