Nike’s The Girl Effect – The Power of Girl

Sometimes you read something and it just resonates within you. I was walking down Great Eastern Street and the bright colours caught my eye. I had to cross the street and just gaze at this mural - so simple and powerful. The artist Lakwena recently returned from completing one of her signature style colourful murals in Vienna, and spent several days working on this commission for The Girl Effect. The Girl Effect is a charity created by The Nike Foundation and the goal is to empower "the...

London Collections: Men – Designer Edward Crutchley

  After spending some time in Jakarta I've become more obsessed with textiles, so I was delighted to see Edward Crutchley's new menswear collection at Fashion East's Menswear Installations at London Collections: Men. You're immediately drawn to the hand dyed Indonesian ikats fabrics and the kyo yuzen  printing (it's screen printed onto cloth, not to be mistaken for a digital print). It's these techniques that make the collection very sports lux and with shapes are so easy to wear...

Yellow!

Yellow is all over the high street today. You can see it in the shop windows of French Connection and the moment that you walk into  Zara it's a sea of yellow. I'm going to wear yellow - it's been so grey I feel need an injection of vitamin C and somehow a yellow dress might just be the thing that I need. I love black but recently I've been wearing a wonderful pink coat from MING and now I feel so desperate for colour. Lots of yellow in COS and shift dresses are easy to wear in any...

Christmas Day Bike Ride

I used to love cycling but I'm a bit afraid with all the traffic in London. Of course  on Christmas day there is almost no traffic in London so it's the perfect day for a Christmas bike ride! The Gerkin St Paul's...

The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014 at the V&A

This spring the V&A is celebrating the Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945 to 2014. It  will be the first major show to examine Italy's rich and influential contribution to the fashion from the end of the Second World War to the present period. I'm quite excited about this exhibition and it's hard to believe that it's the first exhibition of its kind. Sonnet Stanfill is the curator of the exhibition and she has worked with the V&A since 1999. On display will be over 100 different...

Lulu Guinness Press Day SS14: ARM CANDY

Lulu Guinness is one of my favourite brands and Lulu Guinness herself is cute as a button - it was delightful to meet her at her press day. The Covent Garden shop was transformed into an old school confectionery sweet shop a with colourful hard-boiled candy, stripped paper bags and balloons. Humbugs were one of the favoured sweets, inspiring perspex clasps and Guinness' iconic black and white stripes reworked in many different forms, from small pouches to everyday carrier bags. The new...

Behind the Scenes of 3AM Video by Kate Nash

[vimeo 78339309 640 480] 3am was such a fun video to style. Most of the video was shot at The Renaissance Rooms in Vauxhall, it was the perfect location for a 70's roller disco! All the clothes were sourced from a variety of vintage shops and at Gemma Cairney's charity sale Rumble in the Jumble. I found some great pieces, including a red jumpsuit for Kate  Nash - which was quite exciting - having the right looks makes all the difference. You can never underestimate the power that clothing...

Patrick studied at the University of Brighton in 2009. After his Bachelor of Arts, he did his MA at Royal College of Art of London graduating in 2011. He then went on to work with Hussein Chalayan and Victor & Rolf. Patrick was then selected as Fashion Scout's Ones to Watch and showed his collection February 2013 at London Fashion Week, and I have been working with him since then. This collection was inspired from noted contemporary artists Jason Peters and Ivan Navarro and their...
