Visiting Jakarta: Day 1

After a long journey including a three hour drive from the airport (there is so much traffic here!) we arrived in Jakarta. I'm giving a fashion talk tomorrow and working with a hijab designer on a photoshoot this week, and at the end of  the week I'm visiting more designers at their studio - so it should be quite exciting and inspiring. It's already dark by 6:30pm and we were off to The Cloud on the 54th floor of The Plaza to enjoy the view of the city. The...

Kate Nash Billboard’s pre-Lollapalooza Bash!

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...

I have a secret love: I love boxes!

I have a secret love: I love boxes. Ever since I was little, I've always liked a pretty box - it's place to store something special or if it's pretty enough it doesn't need anything in it at all. I think boxes are a stylist's natural obsession - a place to store all the wonderful bits and bobs we discover along our way. I have boxes of ribbons and gloves, tiny but wonderful pieces of fabric plus all sorts of boring things like insoles, shoulder pads and skirt hoops. Recently I made a trip to...

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...

Backstage at the UKFT Awards – Fashion Show

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! I was very happy to be styling the show and backstage was very calm and relaxed as we had a really good team plus the models were all in good spirits. The models were all from FM and several of them had...

Behind the Scenes at Fault Magazine Shoot in Switzerland

This shoot was quite a huge production as we shot in Switzerland with photographer Damien Krisl with set design by Sylvain CabouatI. We shot in a film studio as we had so many different set ups and we needed a swimming pool for one of the shots. It was quite a big production and it took weeks to plan the concept and execution, which was great as it gave me lots of time to get the exact looks I wanted. We also had seven models for the shoot so we had lots to prep! Photographer Damien Krisl...

À La Disposition Perfume Launch

À La Disposition is the husband and wife team of Daniel and Lynda Kinne. They are quite a romantic couple having met as students when they were in their second semester at Parsons in NYC. They launched their first fragrance this season, called {intangible}. It's quite unique as it's unisex, and it's comprised of two perfumes that can be worn separately or together. The 1st perfume has top notes of citrus and the other is more musky - they work well on their own but are very...

Fabergé – Karenina Empereur Emerald Egg

Admiring this beautiful Fabergé emerald egg set in 18 carat white gold with round diamonds. The egg is actually 18mm in height - it's the perfect Easter...

Statement Necklace – Erickson Beamon

I love a statement necklace but often I find them heavy at the back of the neck and end up taking them off by mid-morning. I'm loving this Erickson Beamon necklace - it's not too heavy and easy to wear...

Sarah Angold – ’21st Century Armour’

At Premiere Classe in Paris there are so many wonderful accessories, and most of them fall under some very clear trends but after a while they can all start to look a little bit too similar so it's refreshing to see pieces that stand out from the crowd. You can't help but notice Sarah Angold's work this season - she's been on most people's radar for a quite few seasons but this season the collection, which still has her signature architectural style, was lighter, easier to wear and more...

Behind the Scenes at Kate Nash’s 3am video

I styled Kate Nash's video for 3am and it was so much fun to style a 70's inspired video. In this picture is Kate and her band, from left to right: Linda Buratto, Fern Ford, Kate Nash and Emma Hughes. London's a great city to be in when styling these kinds of shoots because all the great vintage shops make it possible to do great prep! We shot some of the scenes at a Roller Disco in South London. Our fabulous makeup team from AOFM! Actress and model Emilyne...

A Winter Wedding

Attending a wedding is one of the best ways to celebrate the weekend and the New Year. It's life and love affirming plus you get to dress up! I was surprised how many women wore black and many of the women regarless of age wore little fur or fake jackets or stoles - actually even one of the men wore one too. Here is a glimpse of the wedding dress - it was stunning and took over 300 hours to make by eleven...

Oh, Spring!

I'm waking up in the dark and coming home in the dark so it's so nice to be working on Spring/Summer shoots with lots of...

Honey Bees & Horses – Jewellery by Bill Skinner

Bill Skinner has been designing over the decades for many famous brands including Asprey, Garrards and Van Cleef and Arpels, Butler and Wilson and Vivienne Westwood. In 2011 he decided to launch his own affordable jewellery collection. Love this ten galloping horse gold plated necklace (perfect for Ascot) and his bees and honeycombs designs - honeycombs are proving popular for spring too - we saw Alexander McQueen, David Koma and Marios Schwab's honeycomb inspired SS13 collection. David...
