I like working with Paul Costelloe as it really is a family business and somehow that makes a difference: it’s not surprising that one expects something happy and beautiful at a Paul Costelloe show. The fashion show was held at the prestigious Simpson on the Strand, 2 minutes away from Somerset House. The music was happy andContinue reading
Today we had a production meeting with our team as tomorrow we’re doing a fashion film. I’m working with a new designer, Norma Hauri, who designs Muslim wear. In Indonesia there are stylists who specialize in the hijab (the head scarf) as there are so many different ways of wearing it – fortunately Norma isContinue reading

I’m styling Fashion Scout’s ‘Ones to Watch‘ show and one of the designers is Central Saint Martins MA graduate Helen Lawrence. I always find it quite exciting to visit a designer in their studio – it’s just such wonderful insight into their world. Helen is fun and passionate and loves so many aspects of herContinue reading
I love wearing pyjamas so I was quite delighted when William Tempest told me he was doing a collaboration with the W London to design a limited edition, reversible pyjama set. The British-produced pyjamas are meant to express the duality of the British personality – buttoned up by day and let loose by night. ToContinue reading
Charlotte Simpson, Hana Cha, Hellen Van Rees and Ming Pin Tien are this season’s Fashion Scout’s Ones To Watch. I met with all the designers several months before their show. It was wonderful to see their sketches and fabrics, and how they develop into a collection! This season our show ran like clockwork – itContinue reading
If you want good hair then you need a good hair stylist! Backstage at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch show there is a team of hairstylists and every one of them is essential.

Every London Fashion Week about 300 models flock to the Fashion Scout Casting. It’s quite an amazing site. The Ones to Watch designers with Fashion Scout’s casting director Claire, who was giving the designers last minute tips and advice.

I got the text from William that I was hoping for: “Won the award“! William Tempest won the award for “Emerging Brand or Retailer” at The Global Fashion Awards in New York City last night! In the picture: William Tempest with Courtney Blackman just after winning the award As his stylist (and head cheerleader!) I’mContinue reading
We’ve been casting for several days now and it feels a bit like being in a timewarp. We’ve spent 12-hour days in a lovely blue suite at the Waldorf Astoria, drinking lattes as there is a Starbucks in the hotel! We haven’t really seen outside the hotel but it’s all about the casting and havingContinue reading
This season William Tempest’s collection is very beautiful, feminine and sexy. William’s collection is inspired by sirens, the mythical half beauty half sea creatures. The collection has an ethereal, fantastical quality. There is lots of soft draping with chiffons, georgettes and velvet devoré often with a hidden corset and double duchess satins and triple silkContinue reading
I just love working William Tempest. This is his third season at London Fashion Week, showing at Vauxhall Fashion Scout. The collection is beautiful, very red carpet and also easy to wear. Many of Wil’s dresses have a hidden corset so they nip you in at the waist – you feel strong, powerful, sexy…and yetContinue reading
