Celebrating 50 Years of Biba with Barbara Hulanicki at Bath in Fashion

I had been looking forward to styling this show for months. There were so many people involved as the clothes were original Biba pieces belonging to different collectors and one of  the main collectors had worked with Barbara Hulanicki at Biba. It was such a privilege to work with people's personal archives. What was interesting about Biba was that so many of the shapes were still relevant - there was still something modern about the outfits. I loved the tiny shoulders - everything...

Escape & the Bath Abbey Hotel

I love staying in hotels and it's not just because I like little soaps and white towels. I live in my own world of fashion debris. There are always suitcases and rails of clothes constantly being packed and unpacked. It's an endless cycle - of course I'm happy to always be working but a hotel room offers me a true sense of escapism - a world of minimalism. Whereever I go it's like bric-a-brac follows me, I know it's part of the job and I embrace that, but there is nothing like the feeling...

2014 Graduate Fashion Week at the Houses of Parliament

This year Graduate Fashion Week will take place May 31st  - June 3rd at the Truman Breweries on Brick Lane. On May 1st Graduate Fashion Week held a reception with a catwalk show at the Houses of Parliament. It was my first visit to the Houses of Parliament - it's an amazing building and there were actually several events that evening but it was easy to spot the fashion crowd in a sea of suits. The evening was a celebration of up and coming talent, and it was an opportunity to discover...

David Longshaw Publishes Debut E-Book: Mildred

David Longshaw recently published his first E-book. Mildred is "a fashionable children's tale for grown ups" introducing the already well loved characters Maude, Mildred and Doris. I first met David at Fashion Scout as he was one of the  One to Watch winners. He graduated from Central Saint Martins where he first created Maude and over the years we've seen her on many designs and there is even a life size Maude that occasionally appears at special outing and events.  David also contributes...

Celebrating 50 years of Biba at Bath in Fashion

This year Bath in Fashion is celebrating 50 years of Biba with a catwalk show. I'm quite excited about styling the catwalk show as it's been an amazing experience to see so many original Biba pieces and to see how relevant they still are.  During Bath in Fashion on May 7th  Barbara Hulanicki will be interviewed by Hilary Alexander, former Fashion Director of the Telegraph and on May 8th the Biba Show will be held at the Ball Room at the Assembly Rooms venue.

Boxpark Shoreditch

Today I went to visit several markets as I was looking for some sports socks for a shoot that I'm styling, so I went to Cheshire Street just off  Brick Lane but the sock vendor was all out of white socks so I thought I'd head off to Petticoat Market to look for socks but decided to take a break for lunch and stopped at Boxpark. It's usually busy on a Sunday but today is very busy because it's actually 20C  and sunny. Everyone just seems in a better mood and is chilled sitting in the sun...

Stylist Stuff dreams of Emeralds

Theo Fennell collaborated with Gemfields the world’s leading coloured gemstone producer on new the Emerald Suite. Each piece took up to 65 hours to make by the Theo Fennell craftsmen including a setter, mounter, deep engraver and polisher in London at their Fulham Road workshop. I love Theo Fennell's designs because there is always a story behind them, not matter how beautiful the stone is, it is the design that creates a story and making the stone that much more desirable. The one of...

EYLURE – We love lashes!

Every girl loves long lashes, I just didn't realize that Eylure had been making lashes since 1947. I've always found it a bit difficult to put false eyelashes on by myself which is why Eylure has created several solutions for that. They offer a petite selection so I no longer have to trim the lash to fit my eye and a large variety of styles. Not all false eyelashes are designed to look false - which is a look that can be fun but some styles can just open up the eye, almost giving you a...

Pinghe AW14 Backstage at London Fashion Week

PingHe - This is our second season at Fashion Scout, last season, PingHe's first collection picked up several new stockists including Harvey Nicholas so we're quite excited about what will happen this season and we will be exhibiting during Paris Fashion Week. PingHe is body-conscious and flatters the female shape - winter is about resistance and you can see this in the luxurious fabrics: neoprene, pvc, leather, furs and wools. The colour palette was red, black, white and metallic. We...

Tata Naka AW14 – Presentation

I love going to presentations because you never quite know what to expect and a good invitation will always give you an impression of what to expect. I've been a great fans of Tamara and Natasha Surguladze, the Georgian twins that makeup TataNaka for many years and I always look forward to their presentation as they usually create us a delightful whimsical atmosphere. The event took place at The Senate rooms at The Royal Academy so I new that I was in for  treat. The models were lady like...

Yellow!

Yellow is all over the high street today. You can see it in the shop windows of French Connection and the moment that you walk into  Zara it's a sea of yellow. I'm going to wear yellow - it's been so grey I feel need an injection of vitamin C and somehow a yellow dress might just be the thing that I need. I love black but recently I've been wearing a wonderful pink coat from MING and now I feel so desperate for colour. Lots of yellow in COS and shift dresses are easy to wear in any...
