Hilarious! This is cabaret theatre for the fashion crowd – Bourgeois & Maurice are 2 cabaret singers who are strangely as attractive as they are twisted, with great costumes by London designer Julian J Smith. In their new show "Shedding Skin" they lovingly skewer Lady Gaga, Rhianna and Beyonce for their fashion excesses in "I’mContinue reading

I loved the hair and make up we that we did for Andrew Majtenyi show. It’s important to meet with the whole team and talk about the vision and what hair, makeup and styling can do for the collection – there are so many different direction that one can go. It’s just so important toContinue reading

Alex Box did blue lips for Hannah Marshall’s A/W2010 catwalk show. Generally I don’t like blue lips, every makeup artist loves doing them but usually badly… The makeup for Hannah’s show was beautiful. Alex used Mac Pro Lip Mix in blue blended with Lip Mix in black. The contours of the face and the silveryContinue reading

This was Stefán Orschel-Read’s second season at London Fashion Week and I really enjoyed working with him. It really was beautiful and the models were just lovely – there was a lot of excitement backstage. The collection was called "Fågeln" – Stefán was inspired by the beauty of female birds and the ceiling murals ofContinue reading

Doii Lee may be one of the cutest people that I’ve ever met. I just happened to meet her upstairs at Fashion Scout when she was packing up. Fortunately I’d seen her stand during the exibition and just loved her collection. It’s fun, sparkly and whimsical. Lee gratuated from Central St. Martins in 2002, herContinue reading

This was the second season that I’ve styled for Jasper Garvida but it was his first catwalk show at London Fashion Week! The collection was art deco inspired using silks, knit, cashmere and of course Jasper couldn’t resist his signature style and embelished a few of the looks! Jasper thinks big, there were over sixtyContinue reading

This past fashion week has been my busiest one yet. Between NY and London I headed up 9 shows and assisted on 6! All in all it was another wonderfully exhausting couple of weeks. If I could sum up the major trend between them all, it would be the season of the bushy eyebrow! BrowsContinue reading

I hardly got to see any shows this season but I did manage to catch Esprit de Corps ready to wear collection by Horace. I really enjoyed their show (designers Adam Entwistle and Emma Hales ). I loved the wigs and the clean ghostly skin. Signature sculpted leather panels were featured throughout the collection mixedContinue reading

I love styling for Alice Palmer, I’ve styled shows for several seasons and each year everything just keeps getting stronger and stronger! Alice is a very cool girl and I don’t know of many knitters who use a draping technique or who are quite sculptural – this is not your grandmother’s knitwear! We don’t tendContinue 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

Backstage isn’t as crazy as people always think it is. Sometimes it’s quite calm and fun, and Prophetik was like this so I found styling their show to be a pleasure. The whole week was like this. The team had all come from Franklin, Tennessee at the beginning of the week. We had casting, fittings,Continue reading

Alex Box is a rare talent. Lots of make up artists dream of doing cool, edgy colourful make up but they never quite succeed. It often can look over done, or try-hard or just plain wrong. It’s a very fine line bewteen what is beautiful and ugly. I’ve worked with Alex over the years andContinue reading

So many tickets for London Fashion Week! I love going to see fashion shows but this season I’m styling 6 shows so I’m not sure how many I’ll get to see!

It’s all kicked off in London. Fashion Week has begun and I for one am excited – it’s a good indication it’s going to be a goodun when Kate Moss takes her front row seat on Day 1. I’m not sure about you but I was a little un-inspired with New York; I don’t recallContinue reading
