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!

Going up up up!

For my 21st birthday my beautiful housemates got me a trip up in a hot air balloon.
It felt like we were floating over a perfect summers evening in Surrey...surreal & fantastic! If only we could always travel by hot air balloon... :o)
Thankyou <3

Tea lights, lanterns, a tim walker 21st...

The most perfect 21st... a candel lit dinner, fantastic band http://www.myspace.com/zellseemusic and lots and lots and lots of friends.

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.
