5 Minutes with Mr D.London-Socks!

I've always loved socks, so I was very happy when my friend, Mr D. launched Mr D London in 2014. There is always a need for a good pair of socks - menswear can be quite subtle and it's the accessories that can make all the difference.  Mr D's sock are bright and colourful to sleek and smart and they are made of quality cotton.  It's easy to understand Mr D.'s love of colour.  He's is a not only a luxury menswear sock designer who has had a prolific career right from the start;...

Christmas Day in the City

How wonderful to feel the emptiness of London on Christmas Day. It's become one of my favourite things and almost a tradition to go on a Christmas Day cycle through the City and to Saint Paul's...

Columbia Road Flower Market & Christmas

Sometimes I find it hard to tell when it's the weekend - I find one day just seems to roll into the next. I've decided to make a conscious effort that when I do have a weekend or even just one day off to take advantage of it. I love that in my neighbourhood there are so many weekend events that I can go to, and every Sunday is the Columbia Road Flower Market. It's been around since the 1860s and there are now lots of galleries and cafes on the street. Many of them are open quite early so...

Knitwear at Spitalfields Market

It's a rainy grey day in London -  but that doesn't stop me from going out to Spitalfields market. I only live around the corner from the market but I never get bored of going there. Today it seems full of tourists and Christmas jumpers. I don't know where the British tradition of wearing a silly sweater at Christmas came from but there is something quite charming about it, plus it's good to be a bit silly and not take everything too seriously. During the next few weeks there will be lots...

Styling for Paul Costelloe SS15

I like working with Paul Costelloe as it really is a family business and somehow that makes a difference: it's not surprising that one expects something happy and beautiful at a Paul Costelloe show.  The fashion show was held at the prestigious Simpson on the Strand, 2 minutes away from Somerset House. The music was happy and playful and included Perry Como's Catch a Falling Star, truly setting the tone of the show. This season Paul returned to the catwalk with inspirations from the...

Tea, Cake & Antiques at the Town House

I love some of the streets around Spitalfields as they haven't changed much since the Huguenots lived there. If you have a chance and want to see a historical house visit The Town House on 5 Fournier Street. It's a wonderful place to  see some antiques and downstairs there is a traditional kitchen where you can have a slice cake and a delicious cup of...

Jay Briggs presents ‘Melusina’ at Fashion Scout

Jay Briggs is not shy to talk about the realities of what it is to be a new designers and he's not a afraid of a lot of hard work. He's in it for the long haul and even while creating this collection he was working full time in retail. This was Jay's first presentation since graduating from Salford University in 2013. Jay read Anna Wintour's interview on i-D about new designers doing a presentation and knew that this was the right approach for him. It was more intimate and allowed him a...

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...

Simple Escapes

Sometimes you need sunshine and a beach to escape, and some days all you need is a good magazine,  cake and a...

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...
