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 areContinue reading
In Jakarta things seem to happen quickly as many of the stalls in Pasar Santa (Jalan Cisanggiri II, Indonesia) only opened a few weeks ago. The market was originally known for selling vegetables, fruit and household items but then several stalls opened on the top floor and started to attract a younger hipper clientele and more stallsContinue reading
I don’t know when I last went to the GAP – it’s really been so long ago that I don’t remember. A friend said to me recently have you been to the GAP lately, you really should go. I knew that Rebekka Bay launched COS in 2006 and had joined GAP in October 2012 but that Gap Inc.Continue reading
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 canContinue reading

I love hats and I was quite excited to see J Smith Esquire‘s new collection. I first saw his work in 2007 when he graduated from the Royal College of Art. Since then he been showing in Paris, London and Milan and has collaborated with Stella McCartney, Moschino, Manish Aurora and Aganovich. Hats need to be functional and practicalContinue reading
Today photographer Darren Black and set designer Sarah May and I gave a fashion talk to designers, stylists and photographers at The Femina Group office in central Jakarta today. We also met with the designer that we will be working during the next few days. Of course we managed to get in some good shoppingContinue reading
There is something so romantic, decadent and still pragmatic about a fan. The House Duvelleroy was founded in Paris in 1827 and in 2009 Eloïse Gilles and Raphaëlle de Panafieu resuscitated the couture fan house. The hand made fans are made from traditional fabrics like silk and feathers and state-of-the-art materials like carbon fiber andContinue reading
It’s interesting to see how retail is changing. All Saints has created a fully operational film unit with chief creative director, Wil Beedle. They’ve developed a film company focusing on music and fashion, and the videos are more interesting than your average fashion film or commercial – the films are still all about All SaintsContinue reading
I quite like when technology and fashion come together but it’s always a bit novel. Bloom.fm have created wellington boots with built in speakers and they’re bluetooth enabled so you can connect to Bloom.fm and listen to music for up to 5 hours. In addition Bloom.fm has also created a free app, streaming radio stationsContinue reading
While in Bath I went to Debenhams to look at H! by Henry Holland while preparing for the Bath In Fashion catwalk show. There are very few London Fashion Week designers that are aimed at the young fashion market, but H! by Henry Holland is: a dress costs about £40 and jeans are £28 soContinue reading
I’ve been inspired by the warmer weather to start wearing some colour. I feel like I need a bit of colour just to feel like spring is really here! Also after styling Bath in Fashion – for two shows we had almost 400 looks – and so many beautiful florals and lovely bright spring colours.Continue reading
In just four years Bath in Fashion has become a very successful and popular event. The catwalk shows are always sold out. This season I had over 200 looks for one of the fashion shows so we had a very busy backstage but fortunately I had a great team as all my dressers were secondContinue reading
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
