This is my 5th season styling catwalk shows at Bath in Fashion and in a few short years it’s grown into an international event without loosing any of the charm that Bath has to offer! There are over 50 events happening from May 18th-24th. I’m so excited about the talk with author Ben Wild, “A Life in Fashion: TheContinue reading

Gyo Kim and Yuni Choe attended Parsons School of Design in New York before moving to London and studying at Central Saint Martins together.Continue reading
The UK Fashion & Textile Association is a British network for fashion and textile companies. Last night they had their awards show celebrating the best of the UK fashion and textile business. I was backstage styling the UKFT Awards show at the Tobacco Docks. The show opened with a selection of amazing garments that will beContinue reading
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 interestingContinue reading
Every fashion week I seem to fall in love. I’ve been styling Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch for about 12 seasons and I can’t help but adore the designers that I’m working. It’s often the designer first show after graduation – so it’s such a wonderful moment to share in a designers life. This seasonContinue reading
This past year I’ve styled so many shows and each time I’ve had a wonderful backstage fashion team – there is nothing more important than having a super professional team backstage for a show (one weak person can spoil everything). I’ve styled fashion shows that have anywhere from 25 looks over to over 300 looksContinue reading
ar We had a great show yesterday at Fashion Scout. Backstage ran really smoothly – we had to time so many things, as we had a lot of detail that could only be only at the very last minute – the hair was sprayed with ‘paint’ and the lips were glitter with crystals – butContinue reading
This season I’m styling Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch and designer PingHe’s show – both are on Friday 13th – so it will be quite a busy day for me and my team – but an exciting one. I love castings and we had so many great girls today but it doesn’t mean we’re doneContinue reading
It takes a lot of nurturing and support to become a designer. The transition from student to designer is a huge step and it’s not for everyone. Fashion Scout has been nurturing new talent since it’s first Ones to Watch 9 seasons ago. For the past few years I have been a panelist at FashionContinue reading
Euphorik is about luxury and classic cuts with a modern twist. Designer Alexander Leimback was inspired by the Gothic architecture of the Bath Abby and used monochrome prints for Spring Summer 14 collection. Euphorik uses beautiful fabrics: technical silk, cotton, cotton viscose and jersey silk mix. The label has a bit of a dark edgeContinue reading
The UK Fashion & Textile Awards 2013 is a very prestigious event and was held at One Mayfair. The awards were presented by HRH The Princess Royal, President of UKFT, at the gala ceremony hosted by Myleene Klass. It was a black tie event – I always love to see people so dressed up! IContinue reading
In just four years Bath in Fashion has become a very successful and popular event. The catwalk shows are always sold out. This season I had over 200 looks for one of the fashion shows so we had a very busy backstage but fortunately I had a great team as all my dressers were secondContinue reading
One of my favourite activities at Bath in Fashion is attending the fashion talks and book signings. They’re very intimate and quite personal. Last year I went to see Manolo Blahnik interviewed by Iain R Webb (this picture is from the book signing) and Stephen Jones interviewed by Sarah Mower. Stephen Jones had also curatedContinue reading
Bath in Fashion illustration by Julie Verhoeven Since the 18th century Bath has always been a fashionable place but in the past few years the fashion crowds have been making their way back to Bath. This is Bath’s 4th season of Bath In Fashion – and each year it gets better and better. There areContinue reading
I had quite a busy week with Triumph this London Fashion Week. I hosted three fashion shows for Triumph at The House of Frazer and I had the pleasure of interviewing Fydor Golyan while they did a live demonstation at Maison Triumph in Covent Garden. Triumph are the official supplier of underwear at London FashionContinue reading
I love working with emerging talent so styling the Ones to Watch show at Fashion Scout is quite exciting for me – this is my 8th season for the One’s to Watch show! This year we had quite a few challenges as designers often work on their own schedule and not necessarily to a timeContinue reading
I recently met with fashion designer Yeashin Kim as she will be one of the designers featured in Fashion Scout’s group show Ones to Watch, showing during London Fashion Week in February 2013. She recently launched her own fashion line called Shin in 2011 after graduating from London College of Fashion. She was awarded theContinue reading
I met Corrie Nielsen a few seasons ago and I knew that I wanted to work with her and be part of her team. This season Corrie collaborated with the Royal Botanic Gardens and was able to see Kew’s seed libraries, original documentation of Charles Darwin, galleries and a vast catalogue of images. The moodboardContinue reading
Every season a few weeks before London Fashion Week it’s impossible to buy a seamless thong in London. I think every stylist is buying about 20 pairs for their show so they quickly sell out. Well this season everything changed for the better. I was very happy to learn that Triumph Lingerie was the officialContinue reading
I styled the models for a mini catwalk show for Jergens and the lovely Louise Roe was the host. I’m a huge fan of Louise, I met her a few years ago when I was styling William Tempest’s show in New York and she was hosting his dinner party. She’s just one of those girlsContinue reading
