Fashion Month in Review – AW17

Now ‘fashion month’ has passed and we’ve all had time to reflect on 4 cities and more catwalk shows than you can shake a stick at, I always like to look back and see what key trends can be taken into our wardrobes for AW17. The main theme straight off the bat is the same (read more…)

Abstract Expressionism at the RA

Abstract Expressionism at the Royal Academy is focused on the movement in the 20th Century away from literal observation to the abstract, giving a spotlight to the materials used. Suddenly the texture of paint, the blend of colours and the designs created were more important and exciting than any literal depiction could offer. The scale was vast (read more…)

London, My Fashion Muse

As a designer born and raised in London, it is almost impossible not to take inspiration from the city. From exhibitions, to concerts and simply the diversity of style you see on the street, London is my muse and a unique place to take fashion tips from. With this in mind, I was commissioned by (read more…)

Talking fashion & culture in London with Khoollect

I was recently asked to feature on the very chic lifestyle website Khoollect run by the stylish and talented chef Rachel Khoo. Having worked together on some bespoke pieces and shared a passion for all things creative, we got to talking about where in London you can go for inspiration – from shopping experiences to (read more…)

Paris Fashion Week SS17

As both PFW and indeed ‘fashion month’ draws to a close, these last few collections have been a phenomenal way to finish a creative few weeks. One of the last shows was Miu Miu who knew weary fashionistas would need something light-hearted to lift spirits at the end of a long month! The Miu Miu (read more…)

Milan Fashion Week SS17

The Italians sure do love to put on a show and Milan Fashion Week was no exception… Gucci under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele continues to be a riot of romance through a retro 70s filtered lens. Floral prints and jacquard jackets were paired with more ruffles and pleats than I thought conceivable to fit (read more…)

London Fashion Week SS17

LFW always feels more irreverent than any other fashion week; we have that strange mix of history with a thirst for the eccentric and new ways of looking at our heritage. From internationally renowned design houses to emerging labels there were some beautiful and exciting collections on show this season. One of my favourites came from (read more…)

New York Fashion Week SS17

As NYFW draws to a close and we embark on LFW, I always like to look back on the first fashion stories of the new season that will set the tone for what lies ahead.   There were some very ‘New York’ labels that showed uncharacteristically feminine collections, beginning with Michael Kors (below) who eschewed (read more…)

Georgia O’Keeffe at the Tate Modern: Style, Feminism and Individuality

For such an iconic artist as Georgia O’Keeffe it seemed strange to me that she had never been honoured with a retrospective exhibition at a major London gallery before now. So much of her vast body of work which spans more than 7 decades is often reduced to flower drawings and the inevitable sexual connotations (read more…)

Couture Fashion Week A/W 16/17

Couture Fashion Week is always my favourite showcase of what the industry has to offer. In a world where we can now view and buy fashion collections as soon as they hit the runway, catwalk shows seem increasingly insignificant and almost wasteful. All that money, time and attention for something that could instead be shared (read more…)
