Survivor’s Guilt This is a place I never expected to be. Guilty for having fleeting moments of happiness. My husband always said that we would live into our 80’s and die within days of one another, like his grandparents did. He was a true romantic. It did sound nice – but it was always something way, way inContinue reading

I love staying in hotels and it’s not just because I like little soaps and white towels. I live in my own world of fashion debris. There are always suitcases and rails of clothes constantly being packed and unpacked. It’s an endless cycle – of course I’m happy to always be working but a hotelContinue reading

Pineapples and shoes in a tree – I’m not sure what it means but it’s amusing!

We needed some sunny weather so we’ll start spending! I’ve spent the past couple of weeks meeting retailers and listening to them all recount the same story – it’s been an abysmal month and they are not moving their spring stock. Some retailers said that they’ve been able put their orders on hold, others areContinue reading

One of my favourite activities at Bath in Fashion is attending the fashion talks and book signings. They’re very intimate and quite personal. Last year I went to see Manolo Blahnik interviewed by Iain R Webb (this picture is from the book signing) and Stephen Jones interviewed by Sarah Mower. Stephen Jones had also curatedContinue reading

During London Fashion Week I always seem to be snacking and there is always an abundance of things to eat but after a week of cupcakes and cocktails I’m looking forward to a proper meal that includes vegetables!

Prepping with Emmy the Great for her Chinese New Year shoot. Emma-Lee Moss better known as Emmy the Great, just came back from Sundance. After two well-received solo albums, Emmy worked with composer Ilan Eshkeri (Layer Cake, Kick-Ass, Coriolanus) and wrote the soundtrack to Austenland, which is the directorial debut of Napoleon Dynamite co-writer, JerushaContinue reading

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 colour!

I met up with makeup artist Rachel Wood (you can see her on Plain Jane) for some pre-Thanks Giving preparations and we baked a Deepest Darkest Chocolate Cheesecake.

Today I had a wonderful view from the Phoenix office window. I’m not exactly sure who was passing by – but it all had an air of excitement. Who doesn’t love a horse-drawn carriage!

I’m quite excited to be one of The Hospital Club 100. It’s a list of 100 people who are "the most interesting and influential people in the UK creative and media industries". The announcement ceremony took place at the Hospital Club last night and was in Time Out this morning. The voting was public soContinue reading

I love when you just randomly see something that makes you smile. I saw this festive group of people lead by someone playing the bagpipes on Fashion Street today.

Paris has come to London in the most delightful way. It’s an evening of burlesque: The Crazy Horse de Paris presents Forever Crazy. I didn’t take any pictures of the actual show – but I took all these images in the venue – which is a huge tent on the South Bank. It was anContinue reading

In Paris you expect love and romance so just visit the bridge Pont des Arts – it’s a pedestrian bridge that crosses the Seine near the Louvre and is covered in “love locks”.

Every season a few weeks before London Fashion Week it’s impossible to buy a seamless thong in London. I think every stylist is buying about 20 pairs for their show so they quickly sell out. Well this season everything changed for the better. I was very happy to learn that Triumph Lingerie was the officialContinue reading
