I think hats have a magical quality. I like a hat for practical purposes: to either block out the sun or to keep me warm, but there is also a feeling of safety that I get from wearing a hat. I’m not sure if that’s because of the hats practical or whimsical nature. So often for religiousContinue reading
This is one of my favourite fashion shoots and it’s quite special to me for several reasons. Before my husband died I told him I wanted to shoot in a forest and he found this location for me in Wandsworth Common. The designer featured is Hannah Williams, I’ve known her for a few years as she wasContinue reading
This week has all been about seeing shows at London Fashion Week. I knew it was going to be a hard week as it’s just over a year since my husband past away. He was a catwalk photographer so I could alway spot him in the ‘pit’ when he was shooting a show and we’dContinue reading
Vision boards. Do you believe if you commit a vision to paper, create a moodboard in detail, and share the vision with your team that it will become true? I do this every week with moodboards for photoshoots and our moodboards become a reality. So what if you create vision or moodboard for your life would that work? IContinue reading
Secondhand Shopping in Pimlico For a stylist I actually don’t shop very much, or at least I don’t think I shop as much as I’d like to. When I’m visiting another country I alway try and fit some shopping in, but in London it happens a bit more haphazardly. Recently my sister in-law was visiting and weContinue reading
ONES TO WATCH Ana Ljubinkovic, Anissa Aida, Billie Jacobina, Ester Kubisz were selected from a long list of emerging designers by a panel of industry experts which this season included Martyn Roberts, Fashion Scout’s Founder and Creative Director, esteemed fashion writer Tony Glenville, Ones to Watch ’s very own stylist, Rebekah Roy (me!) and Kendall Robbins, fromContinue reading
One of the amazing parts about my job is that I get to work with some very talented people. I first met Rachel Toledo (formerly Rachel Wood, as she was recently married) over a decade ago and we worked together on numerous projects from catwalk shows to celebrities. Rachel was always easy to work with, sheContinue reading
This year at Graduate Fashion Week you can see that there is more thought put into the styling – which is great but good styling can also make bad things look good, so sometime it’s important to look past the styling and just see the collections! There were lots of accessories on the catwalk on DayContinue reading
I’m very excited about this issue of Candid Magazine with milliner Stephen Jones gracing our cover. I rarely feel that I’m doing shoots that I truly love and really want to be doing (I’m planning on changing that this year), but this shoot was something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time! Plus I love hats andContinue reading
Sometimes it’s just good to have a change of location and experience another point of view. I can step out of my hotel room of the Mövenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna, (Egypt) right onto the beach. It’s my new office for the next few days as I’m busy prepping for next week, as it’s quite busyContinue reading
This is my 5th season styling catwalk shows at Bath in Fashion and in a few short years it’s grown into an international event without loosing any of the charm that Bath has to offer! There are over 50 events happening from May 18th-24th. I’m so excited about the talk with author Ben Wild, “A Life in Fashion: TheContinue reading
Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch is one of my favourite shows: 4 designers selected from a shortlist of 50 emerging designers by industry experts: Hilary Alexander, Martyn Roberts, Kendal Robbins, Georgia Hardinge and me. Anita Hirlekar, JS Shin, Leaf Xis and Typical Freaks will show at Fashion Scout’s 17th season of the Ones to Watch!Continue reading
I love the dream of fashion. I want to wear big dresses everyday and feel extraordinary. The right dress can change everything and David Ferrreira’s designs are a modern play on traditional shapes with big fluffy yellow shoes adding a touch of humour! Designer Davide Ferreira BA (Honours) Fashion Design at University of Westminster Give us one interesting fact aboutContinue reading
I met Hannah Williams a few seasons back in 2013 while styling Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch show, Hannah was selected along side designers Helen Lawrence and Renli Su to show at London Fashion Week. In 2013 Hannah won both the Graduate Fashion Week 2013 Womenswear and Fashion Innovation Awards and she also won the Muuse winner 2013. HannahContinue reading
The thing about shoes is, it doesn’t matter how tall, short, chubby or fat we are, we can all wear shoes – they don’t discriminate. We might even be willing to squeeze and squish our toes because we can’t resist wearing the perfect pair of high heels. Shoes have the power to make us feel stronger,Continue reading
This year’s Graduate Fashion Week Gala had almost as many menswear collections as womenswear. I was a judge on the selection committee this year alongside Volker Kettenniss, Natasha Cowen, Helen Low, Sarah Brennand and Hilary Alexander who has been on the Executive Committee and championing GFW, which is a charity, now in its 24th year. ThisContinue reading
I find most perfume tv commercials a bit boring, but really how do you get the spirit of a scent on TV? The new Chanel ‘Chance Eau Vive‘ campaign directed by Jean-Paul Goude is so charming. It takes place in a Chanel styled bowling alley and all the models Cindy Bruna, Romy Schonberger, Rianne Van Rompaey and Sigrid Agren are in beautiful pastelContinue reading
I love the world of Kate Spade – their brand promise is to lead an interesting life, to inspire colorful living. They recently celebrated the Chelsea Flower show with a dinner in South Kensington and the flowers were so delightful that you had to look twice before you realized the arrangement was made with tea cups and saucers. KateContinue reading
