Each designer created a capsule collection that was inspired by the heritage of the local area surrounding their university. The finalists are Susanna Yi from the University of East London, Leanne Jordon from theContinue reading

I love looking at the photographers in the pit and listening to the clicking sounds – when a fabulous dress goes down the runway the clicking can double!

At London Fashion Weekend I didn’t expect to find a streamer that’d I’d love – but these ones are so light and cute. Plus they come in six different colours! Often at a studio you have the big heavy professional steamers that take a bit of time to heat up, but also not every studioContinue reading

My team and I had a great time at ShopStyle at London Fashion Weekend. It was great to meet so many people who just loved fashion. After styling 3 shows at London Fashion Week it’s great to meet the customer – the end user! It’s really important not to forget who fashion is really for!Continue reading

I’ve always wanted to style a shoot in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel – the Victorian exterior is so beautiful! The corridors are actually very very wide so that during Victorian times women could wear their big bustle dresses and pass each other in the corridor without the dresses touching. Me with the talented makeupContinue reading

I love scouting for locations. It’s important to find the right set up for your shoot: it can make all the difference! You have to remember that one day you can have a beautiful sky but that can all change on your shoot day. I love these red apples but will they be there inContinue reading

As Kate Nash’s stylist I got to interview her for The Industry‘s first quarterly event at Swarovski Crystallized Lounge. Kate gives great interviews as she is very articulate and passionate about everything she does. One of the topics that was discussed was the lack of women in the music industry and how Kate is trying toContinue reading

There are quite a few fabric shops along Brick Lane. This shop had a small front entrance and the shop was very narrow but it was such an unusually long shop that by the time you got to the back you couldn’t hear Brick Lane anymore – it was like being lost in a fabricContinue reading

Stylists don’t often have long lead times to prep a shoot but with a good brief you can prepare well and you’re guaranteed an amazing shoot day. The clothes have to suit the artist or model but really they should inspire the whole team!

Too many people think that a photographic studio is just about white walls – but many studios have lots of options inside. It’s great for editorials or commercial shoots to have a selection of furniture and even different textures of walls. Sometimes a couple of props can add so much to the mood of theContinue reading

Well, take some advice from Hannah Almassi, the Fashion News and Features Assistant at Grazia UK. *       What did you study at school and where? I went to Nottingham Trent University which has a great art and design school.Continue reading

I don’t like to break the illusion of fashion. It’s beautiful, fun, even unobtainable; it’s the dream. I love fashion and everything about it. I’m not the kind of girl who skims a magazine – I read magazines cover to cover. I like things that are aspirational. It might be a beautiful photo shoot, orContinue reading

Daisy de Villeneuve is the type of artist that once you start to recognize her work you’ll see it everywhere. Her illustrations have a unique child like quality to them: I just love them!!! She’s designed Topshop’s quirky shoeboxes, customized Moet & Chandon bottles for Colette’s 10th anniversary, designed for Nike, the V&A Museum, hasContinue reading

I’m really looking forward to styling Harriet’s Muse‘s show, Mind Your Manners. I’ve worked with Craig & Cheryl for several years and I just love what they do. Their Spring/Summer 09 collection is so beautiful and cool. The show’s only a few days away, it’s on Monday at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. It’s a challenge toContinue reading

My assistant and I were on our way to Top Shop where she’d been spotted by 2 girls from Elle Street Style looking for cool trendsetters. They thought Sana looks like Chloë Sevigny! How cool is Sana – she even has one green and one blue eye and they are so beautiful and of courseContinue reading
