Deep south

I'm off to Aruba tomorrow for a week-long fashion shoot. Eeeeeekkkkk!! SO excited. Spent the whole day stuffing about a million dresses and shoes into 4 suitcases - a mean feat I can tell you. I dread to think about the clothing explosion that will happen when we open them at the hotel...

Here are some amazing pics of Bregje Heinen as Miss Oklahoma in Numero magazine #111 that put a smile on my face today. I looove the colour green, it's my absolute favourite, and never has a proud, emerald cactus looked so good next to a pretty blonde cowgirl and a whole array of Miu Miu delights. Ride 'em, Cowboy!

Speak again upon my return xxxx

Eva Mendez for W Magazine. I looooove the bold colours and sultry undertone. There's something so compelling about every shot. It really draws you in.

Gold dust

Naoya Nakayma's extraordinary creations were one of my highlights of the London College of Fashion Bachelor Graduate Show. Mixing futuristic archictectural shapes with classic staples while interjecting flashes of brilliant gold - such as a show-stopping trench that dripped with metallic cubes - it was nothing short of brilliant.

Catch the light

Rain, rain, go away

Tuesday evening.  The sky is tumbling down with pregnant raindrops; the sky an eerie yellow.  Wondering where my bank holiday disappeared to?
