So it’s almost London Fashion Week and every season brings new emerging talent. I find it so inspiring, there’s lots of great energy & excitement. I’m working with fashion Scout’s show case of The Ones To Watch. The winners receive the opportunity to showcase on the catwalk during London Fashion Week! I’ve been very fortunate to style and beContinue reading

Come September we’re going to see lots of fashionistas wearing the River Island + Ashish collaboration. I can’t help but love Ashish’s collections, they are fun, happy, easy to wear and beautiful. Somehow they mean something, they feel more than just clothes… It’s personal, Ashish’s collections have always had some kind of message from ‘I’mContinue reading

I love shopping, and one of my favourite things to do is to buy something local when travelling. In Chani, Crete you’ll find lots of tourist shops with long flowing embroidered dress, pretty but not my thing. There’s a H&M, Zara and Diesel but if you’re looking for something a bit different it’s worth visiting Georgina Skalidi’sContinue reading

Even thought I love accessories it’s still always fun to go to a press day especially when you’re enticed by getting your nails done at the DryBy in central London, they do blow drys too but I love getting my nails done. You’re forced to sit still for 20 minutes – it’s like a timeContinue reading

I’m always being asked for top styling tips so I thought I’d start sharing some with you. It’s really easy to get into a style rut. We often choose the same colours and same shapes with small variations and we ignore that are bodies change. Clothing is an expression of who you are. You are communicatingContinue reading

  The six Pakistani designers selected for Fashion DNA: Pakistan 2016-17 programme debuted their capsule collections in a catwalk show at Fashion Scout on 18 February 2017.   I styled this show featuring six designers: Gulabo, JEEM, Munib Nawaz, The PinkTree Company, Sonya Battla and Zuria Dor. It was the first time all the designers were showing in the UK. It was really important for them to beContinue reading

It’s always about the model – no matter how amazing the clothes are and having the most talented glam squad if you don’t have the right model for the show (or the shoot) you’re in trouble. Fortunately at the Fashion Scout Casting we got to see over 300 models. When you see that many girlsContinue reading

  I like fun happy shoots. I don’t mind the occasional shoot where the model looks sullen, or deep in thought but there’s something wonderful when a model smiles. Smiling is a bit contagious besides it’s hard not to be happy in such fun colourful clothes. This shoot featured Samuel Thorley’s graduate collection. When Samuel was 17Continue reading

I haven’t driven in about 8 years but when I was offered the opportunity to drive a McLaren on the historic race course, Goodwood, in Chichester I didn’t hesitate. I don’t know anything about cars but something inside me just jumped at the opportunity. Face your fears? I’m not sure it was a fear, as it only dawned onContinue reading

  It’s important to me to have a good night’s sleep and for the past year I haven’t been sleeping very well. So I decided to create some bedtime rituals and routines for myself. It’s hard for me to shut down my laptop but I do and that really signifies the end of my day. SoContinue reading

We shot this in Jakarta. In the early morning we went to the flower markets to buy fresh flowers for the shoot. There are never tourists at the market so people who curious to know why were there. I’ve always loved using fresh flowers for  my shoots, they seem to make things more real forContinue reading

I think hats have a magical quality. I like a hat for practical purposes: to either block out the sun or to keep me warm, but there is also a feeling of safety that I get from wearing a hat. I’m not sure if that’s because of the hats practical or whimsical nature. So often for religiousContinue reading

This is one of my favourite fashion shoots and it’s quite special to me for several reasons. Before my husband died I told him I wanted to shoot in a forest and he found this location for me in Wandsworth Common. The designer featured is Hannah Williams, I’ve known her for a few years as she wasContinue reading

I recently watched a Ted Talk, The Cure for Grief by Norah Casey – Norah says the only way out of grief is motion.  I believe it to be true, as it’s been my own experience. It’s been a very strange year for me. After my husband died I had the opportunity to go to Pakistan, Lagos andContinue reading

This week has all been about seeing shows at London Fashion Week. I knew it was going to be a hard week as it’s just over a year since my husband past away. He was a catwalk photographer so I could alway spot him in the ‘pit’ when he  was shooting a show and we’dContinue reading

Vision boards. Do you believe if you commit a vision to paper, create a moodboard in detail, and share the vision with your team that it will become true? I do this every week with moodboards for photoshoots and our moodboards become a reality. So what if you create vision or moodboard for your life would that work?  IContinue reading

This past year I’ve found it hard to blog. Grief really messes with your concentration and focusing is really a challenge. The other difficulty was grief and fashion just don’t seem to go together but they are both a big part of my daily life right now and I’ve wanted to find a way forContinue reading

Secondhand Shopping in Pimlico For a stylist I actually don’t shop very much, or at least I don’t think I shop as much as I’d like to. When I’m visiting another country I alway try and fit some shopping in, but in London it happens a bit more haphazardly. Recently my sister in-law was visiting and weContinue reading

One of the amazing parts about my job is that I get to work with some very talented people. I first met Rachel Toledo (formerly Rachel Wood, as she was recently married) over a decade ago and we worked together on numerous projects from catwalk shows to celebrities. Rachel was always easy to work with, sheContinue reading
