Today was the first day of the WGSN Drapers Fashion Summit and I styled a fashion show featuring 6 recent graduate designers. It’s always exciting to work with a graduate collection – it’s very fresh and you can see all the effort that went into the collection and the thought behind it. A graduate collectionContinue reading

Alice Lee                                              Malene Oddershede Bach I’m quite excited about styling Vauxhall Fashion Scouts’ Ones to Watch show during London Fashion Week. This season the designers are Alice Lee, Malene Oddershede Bach, Phoebe English and Shao Yen. The Ones To Watch is usually the designers’ first catwalk show so it’s a lot of pressure.Continue reading

I’ve always liked a good hat but after spending a week styling backstage at Royal Ascot and working with Stephen Jones’ hats I’ve developed a new addiction and a better understanding of what makes a great hat. We put a lot of effort into choosing a dress but often you forget to put the sameContinue reading

One of the most exciting and important parts of Ascot is the racing and it’s quite amazing. I didn’t know that I’d find it so impressive and exciting. The sound of the horses as they are on the race course is louder then you think and when they pass by it’s so quick – IContinue reading

Today was the first day of Royal Ascot, which is celebrating its 300th anniversary and we did our first  fashion show in Bessborough Restaurant. The designers are Amanda Wakeley, Julien McDonald, Todd Lynn, Vivienne Westwood and Steven Jones. It’s quite an amazing event to style and we had a great backstage team. The Bessborough restaurant is beautifulContinue reading

We had a busy day doing the prep and fitting for The Royal Ascot Fashion Show. We have over 60 looks from Vivienne Westwood, Steven Jones, Amanda Wakeley, Julien McDonald and Todd Lynn – it should be quite an exciting week and a wonderful show. So many amazing shoes!

I styled Prophetik’s show at Vauxhall Fashion Scout this London Fashion Week. Every show you work on is different but this one is truly unique. Prophetik is all about sustainability, but not just in terms of fashion – it’s a way of life and how they treat their team. Jeff Garner and his team arrivedContinue reading

Backstage with Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Ones To Watch: Ada Zanditon, Dean Quinn, Hermione de Paula and Marko Mitanovski. This was a very busy crazy backstage show to style with four designers and 50 looks. It’s quite a challenge as the designers share the majority of the models – which makes time management the biggest challenge.Continue reading

Before every fashion show the designers styling team does a hair and make up test. We have several meetings beforehand to look at the garments, colours and tear sheets and decide on the looks and trends for the upcoming season. Alice Palmer is a knitwear designer, and I worked with her last season at VauxhallContinue reading

So of course I’m quite excited about the show on Living. I’ve watched the second episode and my assistants and I have been making guesses about who will win! I’m really looking forward to seeing the makeovers on the next show – should be good. Some of the girls are just a bit too whinyContinue reading

I recently worked with knitwear designer Alice Palmer on her show for Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s Ones to Watch. I just loved all her work. She’s just one of those girls you meet and you feel like you’ve known her your whole life. Did your mother or grandmother knit? AP- Both my Grandmothers were fashion designers,Continue reading

Styling a group show is never an easy task but “The Ones to Watch” went very smoothly. All our designers were well organized and most of our models arrived early. The show before us was running late – which meant we had plenty of time, so we were off to a good start! We hadContinue reading
