Nina Simone, Feeling Good

I thought I would take the opportunity to tell you this is my favourite song.
Someones made a pretty cool animation to it I found on youtube...
Also, did you know that 'Nina' means little one?

The September Issue

On the front of The September Issue dvd Cosmo is quoted
'If you love fashion you'll love this'
I don't think they could be further from the truth... if you love fashion, especially in an art form, you'll hate the september issue...

Coco Avant Chanel on the other hand, you will love.

Andersen M Studio

Another amazing animation...how do they do it? Using paper, cutting it, creating 3D shapes and then using the stop-frame technique...watch it, it's unreal.

Festive fascinator


Today I went to the Fashion and Textiles Museum and met Mary Jane who taught me how to make a fascinator. T'was a lovely day :o) I used a combination of techniques, leather was very tricky to mold into a neat shape! I think the vintage clock face gives it the finishing touch.

Rachel Riley, 82 Marylebone High Steet.

I have just spent a delightful week working in Rachel Riley's head office with head designer Jo and manager Michelle.
I put together fabric boards, worked on their website, designed some prints, made posters, and sent off various bits and bobs to Hong Kong including hundred of working drawings and fabric samples ready to be put into production.
I learnt a lot about how to run what looks like small company but is actually now worldwide. All the staff at Rachel Riley are very friendly and really close with each other, Rachel herself is very involved with the goings on and is frequently in the store and office. I met her a few times, she is lovely, approachable and her personalility is reflected in her designs and the whole brand of Rachel Riley.
A big thankyou to all at Rachel Riley!

Photoshoot styling






One rainy day this summer I helped my friend Ella with a children's photoshoot. Some of the clothes featured are ones which I have made for past collections. My favourite is Tilly in my black velvet leggings, t-shirt and lilac blazer attempting to use an iPhone.
