20130209 104942 Behind the Scenes at Kate Nashs 3am video

3am was such a fun video to style. Most of the video was shot at The Renaissance Rooms in Vauxhall, it was the perfect location for a 70’s roller disco! All the clothes were sourced from a variety of vintage shops and at Gemma Cairney’s charity sale Rumble in the Jumble. I found some great pieces,Continue reading

I love how Spitalfields is constantly changing. This space outside Christ Church was originally a  men’s toilet,  it them became a night club called Public Life and now it’s a vintage shop that’s open on weekends for the next few weeks. This is a picture of the toilets in 1982 by photographer John Claridge. It still has the sameContinue reading

Mad Men is a show set in the 1960’s in Manhattan. Life is fun and exciting, men are men and women are women but life is changing. It’s an age of innocence – where pregnant women smoke, dinner is on the table for you when you get home, you have a black house keeper, casualContinue reading

Keira Lyn Rathbone is a Type Writer Artist. I took a picture of Keira typing away at On Off during fashion week. Keira studied fine art but she’s self taught in type writer art! I just love it and her look!

Mei-Hui Liu of VIctim always does an incredible show. She works with the same people that she has for years – she very loyal and her friends are very loyal to her.  Dejan Cekanovic and Dirk Walther from Premier did the hair. Alex Box from D&V Management did the make-up – every year she justContinue reading

I love going to vintage fashion fairs. Many of the vendor have been collection and selling items for over 20 years so if you’re looking for something special just ask them.

I haven’t been to Camden for ages on a Sunday. I forgot how much I liked it: the people, the tourists who’ve never seen a Goth before and all the market stalls. It’s still a great place to find things for a shoot. I’ve found so many cool things in Camden from martial arts equipmentContinue reading
