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
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 evenContinue reading

If you are visit Vogue.co.uk as Stephen Jones and Dolly Jones, Editor of Vogue.com will choose the budding hat designer. The winning hat will be displayed at the Bard Graduate Center Gallery for theContinue reading
I like hats. When I’m wearing a hat I feel very self-conscious but at the same time quite special. Hats have always been an indicator of social status – perhaps this is why we feel special when we’re wearing a hat, or it might just be the whimsical nature of hats with so many delightfulContinue reading
The beret has been around for ages and has generally been worn in the military since the mid-20th century. Although military is not a big trend this season I think the beret will be great for this Autumn/Winter 08! I love this Chanel beret; I tried it on and it’s so cute! If it’s aContinue reading
Amelia’s Magazine is a very cool independent magazine. It’s takes a lot of work for a magazine to do things on their own terms! That’s why I asked Amelia’s magazine – fashion industry insiders for quotes to use during my Viktor & Rolf fashion talk at the Barbican. In your opinion, what’s the best wayContinue reading
Annabel Lewis is the founder of the celebrated trimmings and ribbon shop and every stylist’s favourite haberdashery VV Rouleaux! Annabel was giving mini demonstrations as part of the Viktor & Rolf exhibition on bow making. She gave everyone a long wired ribbon and showed us how to make the perfect rose and Christmas tree bow!Continue reading
We had a great shoot day. We did lots of prep for this shoot; we went to PRs and designers and found lots of fabulous dresses!!! It was an easy, happy shoot day – lots of shoots are – everyone wants to get as much out of the shoot as possible and to do aContinue reading
Summer Couture Hats If I’m looking for inspiration and a good cup of tea I head to Sloane Square, where I will find my hatter. I have known Louise Mariette for some time now, and I think he might be one of the most fabulous people I will ever meet. You expect a hatter toContinue reading
I have always loved hats – so living in London is the right place to explore this love. Canada is a place more suitable for a functional “I don’t want any more frostbite” kind of hat. I tend to like hats that are small and understated. I don’t want to be the annoying kind ofContinue reading
I really enjoyed Premiere Classe. I love accessories and the selection was overwhelming – there are over 300 vendors; there were 3 glove exhibitors, 79 shoes designers, 80 jewellery designers, 51 hat designers, 81 bag designers plus scarf, sunglasses and umbrella designers! I think it’s so difficult to be a buyer!!! Amy from Comfort StationContinue reading
I really like attending On|Off – there are so many new designers there – I say new but many of them have been designing for years. The venue is set up in a very welcoming way: you feel free to look at a collection and chat with the designer and of course it’s a beautifulContinue reading
Karen Brost showed at London Fashion Week at an exclusive members club! I really like Karen’s work. It’s very grown up, very sophisticated and has a slight edge. Depending how you style it, you can make it quite edgy & chic or you can go elegant and sophisticated – but her work is all aboutContinue reading
Michele Obi from My Fashion Life at Modernist Catherine McColl, the fashion editor of Amelia’s Magazine at Anne-Sofie Back. Maria Milano, the on line Editor of InStyle at the Jaeger after party! I loved the Jaeger show! It was great to see a British iconic brand showing at LFW – I think they’re going toContinue reading
Louis Mariette is a fabulously delightful milliner and i-D magazine stated that he was one of the 250 most influential creative professionals in the world. He is probably most famous for designing the world’s most expensive hat, valued at £1.5 million. Most importantly, whenever you visit Louis’ showroom you’re offered a cup of tea andContinue reading
