I have a love hate relationship with my mobile. I don’t like to be dependent on anything but my mobile is my lifeline. It’s like a soother for adults and I panic when I don’t know where my phone is. My clothes never seem to have pockets so I’m always misplacing my mobile while onContinue reading

I was a judge on the selection committee this year alongside Volker Kettenniss, Natasha Cowen, Helen Low, Sarah Brennand and Hilary Alexander who has been on the Executive Committee and championing GFW, which is a charity, now in its 24th year.

In Jakarta things seem to happen quickly as many of the stalls in Pasar Santa (Jalan Cisanggiri II, Indonesia) only opened a few weeks ago. The market was originally known for selling vegetables, fruit and household items but then several stalls opened on the top floor and started to attract a younger hipper clientele and more stallsContinue reading

This was my second trip to Jakarta and we were doing some live photoshoots as part of Jakarta Fashion Week. I love using fresh flowers in shoots so very early one morning my team headed off to the flower market. It’s not a place that tourists visit, so it was obvious to everyone that I was aContinue reading

I met the designers from Mash Up and wanted to see more of their work. They pointed me in the direction of the concept store SUPERSPACE. In Singapore cool shops can actually be found in malls, it’s the easiest way to shop and it might be the only way to shop here as it’s too hotContinue reading

Yesterday I was at the Fashion Scout model casting day, casting for The Ones To Watch with Cassandra Verity Green, Keiko Nishiyama, Youjia Jin & Min Wu and the Merit Award winner Gyo Yuni Kimchoe  duo Gyo Kim and Yuni Choe. It’s always a great casting day – we must have seen over 400 models – which is really greatContinue reading

British Asian Fashion Week Preview took place May 15th at the Alchemy Festival at Southbank Centre and it was all about celebrating ‘double identity’. If  in every British Asian’s household there are two types of dress, a western one and an eastern more traditional wardrobe over the past few decades these looks have slowly mergingContinue reading

I love staying in hotels and it’s not just because I like little soaps and white towels. I live in my own world of fashion debris. There are always suitcases and rails of clothes constantly being packed and unpacked. It’s an endless cycle – of course I’m happy to always be working but a hotelContinue reading

If you’re looking for a leather jacket it’s worth checking out Ada+Nik. Their signature leather biker jackets have a classic shape with attention to details and combining blue and black leather gives the jackets a very distinct look.

Every girl loves long lashes, I just didn’t realize that Eylure had been making lashes since 1947. I’ve always found it a bit difficult to put false eyelashes on by myself which is why Eylure has created several solutions for that. They offer a petite selection so I no longer have to trim the lashContinue reading

I’ve always quite liked the Kings Road as it was one of my favourite fashion weeks – it’s hard to believe that quite a few years ago London Fashion Week was held on the Kings Road.
