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...

J Smith Esquire

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 practical - meaning they need to be wearable but it's the aesthetic, the design that truly delights. Hats are like jewellery, they are personal and the wearer has...

Visiting Jakarta: Day 2

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 shopping today and we were quite inspired by all the designers that we saw, so much so that we've planned an extra editorial shoot on our last day. We went to the traditional department...

Super Cute Meadham Kirchhoff Bags for SS14

Can't resist these Meadham Kirchhoff bags for SS14 - too cute. Being  grown up means you can wear anything you...

The House Duvelleroy

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 and they take about 20 to 100 hours to create. They've also done their first collaboration with Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.  The fans retail for from...

AllSaints Film – Retail is changing

[vimeo 70932830 640 480] 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 Saints -  about the life style - the brand DNA. Their debut film New Music City is a documentary giving a good insight into Kings of Leon,...

Cat T-shirts by Black Score

I love when you just know the designer must own a pet - so many cat t-shirts by Black Score and the designer Simeon Farrar does own a...

Bloom Boots – Boots with speakers?

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 stations for each of the major UK festivals, featuring artists from the line-ups. This might be fun way to share music with your friends in between bands or back at the camp site....

I wish I was Wearing…Holly Fulton

I love clothes that make you smile. We wear clothes for practicality but really we wear clothes because they make us feel good. Whenever I look at Holly Fulton's dresses I just smile. Holly Fulton Autumn Winter 2013 collection is very easy to wear and I love the lipstick...

H! by Henry Holland at Bath in Fashion

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 so it's all reasonably priced and very cute! Things you probably didn't know about Debenhams in Bath - there is O2 WiFi throughout the store and you can download the Debenhams app...

In the Pink – Dressing for Spring!

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. This is my favourite coat at the moment. It's a 70's leather coat that I bought for £5 in a sale at Rokit, on Bricklane. It might be one of my best purchases for cost per wear. I was recently given...

Fashion Talks – at Bath In Fashion

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 curated an exclusive exhibition at the Holburne Museum. Bath in Fashion offers some amazing world class events that would rival any fashion capital. This year there are quite...

Charles of London Pop-up Shop This Weekend!

If you've been inspired by glam rock lately with the David Bowie exibition at the V&A, you'll love Charles of London. This week they have a pop up shop in East London at 54 Rivington Street and I just happened to pass by while I was prepping for a shoot. Designers Mark Charles and Susan Diamond were still setting up the shop. They weren't quite open (they're open Fri Mar 29 - Wed Apr 3, 11am-7pm) but they let me come in and have a sneaky peek. I love an explosion of print and colour - it...

Bath in Fashion Blogger Award!

I'm one of the judges for The Bath in Fashion Blogger Award and I've spent the weekend reviewing fashion blogs. I don't often or really ever get a whole weekend to sit down and read tons of blogs so it's quite a treat. I love just reading about how people love fashion. Many of the blogs I'm reviewing - the blogger works or is in university full time and just loves fashion - which somehow makes me very happy. I work in fashion and I'm always thinking about the customer - the wearer - will they...

The Faux Fur Coat – Cosy!

I love being cosy and this cold weather isn't helping so I've been wearing one of my favourite faux fur coats by designer Karen Brost. You can look nice and keep warm at the same time - fashion is more pratical than we think it is!  If you go to any vintage shop they have a huge selection of faux fur coats to choose from. Wearing a faux fur coat is a great option as not all of us want to resort to a puffer jacket! Love the leopard print coats at Blitz London Lots of fake fur...

Shopping at Rumble In The Jumble

Rumble in the Jumble is a fun jumble sale that raises money with Oxfam in aid of abused women in the Democratic Republic of Congo and there are so many bargains to be had. Quite a few celebrities including Daisy Lowe, Bat for Lashes, Jessie Ware, Fearne Cotton, Daisy Lowe, Alison Mosshart, Anna Calvi, Gemma Cairney have donated clothes There were Gina and Gucci shoes on sale for £20 and a Peter Pilotto rucksack for £30. It really is a huge jumble sale and there are rails and rails...

Donna Ida – Birthday Celebrations and The Industry

Donna Ida, the Queen of Denim has just celebrated her 5th birthday (her shop's 5th birthday! 'It literally feels like yesterday that I opened our first boutique in Chelsea - so much has happened in five years and we've achieved a lot!  I often look back and remember when it was just me with my laptop and an idea sitting in my flat.  I wish I could fast-forward to five year's time from now and take a peek into the future, it'll be interesting to see where we are at the ten...
