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


If you’re doing a shoot and you want to make sure everyone knows you’re in London you’ll want something British and iconic like either a letter or telephone box or anywhere along Embankment in the shoot. The British telephone box as been around since 1926 and it’s not something that any of us would want to see become obsolete but IContinue reading


Do you run like a girl? I hope so!!! You might have already seen this video as it came out in 2014 by award-winning documentary filmmaker Lauren Greenfield. It was a social experiment for the brand Always. It made me think of the Friends’ episode with Phoebe running in Central Park – running like a girl with limbs flying (like the stereotype) butContinue reading


I’ve always loved socks, so I was very happy when my friend, Mr D. launched Mr D London in 2014. There is always a need for a good pair of socks – menswear can be quite subtle and it’s the accessories that can make all the difference.  Mr D’s sock are bright and colourful to sleek and smart and theyContinue reading

I was at a preview screening for Pitch Perfect 2 last night, and it’s a great way to see a movie – the screening room at the May Fair Hotel was huge and the picture and sound were state-of-the-art. The movie was fun, well-made, and had girl power and feminism written all over it onlyContinue reading


Grace Wales Bonner is a recent graduate from Central Saint Martins who was awarded the 2014 L’Oreal Professional Talent Award and showed her Autumn/Winter 2015 collection at Fashion East Man.  It’s exciting to see such a young designer getting so much attention: Grace is 23 and just showcased her work  at the V&A as part of Fashion InContinue reading


Thea Porter was one of the pioneers of one of the most iconic looks in British fashion: bohemian chic. The exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum is really important in that it actually fills a gap in fashion history. The guest curator of the exhibition, Laura McLaws Helms, took us through the exhibition andContinue reading

It was a greatContinue reading


Sometimes all I want is a bowl of cereal – usually at night just before bed. I never had sugary cereals growing up, they were band from our household but we were allowed a spoonful of brown sugar on porridge… I’d look longingly at Lucky Charms and Coco Puffs but we’d quickly bypass them for Weetabix in theContinue reading


How wonderful to feel the emptiness of London on Christmas Day. It’s become one of my favourite things and almost a tradition to go on a Christmas Day cycle through the City and to Saint Paul’s Cathedral.
