2012 is sort of a whole new beginning for me because, for the first time since I was 5 years old, I am not a student. It’s a weird feeling, let me tell you. In the spirit of new beginnings, I want to change my shopping habits to fit a “less is more” mentality. I don’t need ten million t-shirts, I just need ten that I really really love (or maybe twenty :D ).
It is time to build a super-efficient wardrobe. And you know what that means. SHOPPING!!! The first step to my resolve is acquiring the perfect cardigan, this magical oversized Wildfox one which I feel was made for me and only me.
Have you got any fashion resolutions?
As promised, below is the video I shot and edited for Cecilia Seilern’s SS11 collection. I’m still dying over the black jacket and the trousers!
Check out Cecilia’s website here.
Below is a “making of” video featuring my awkward self;
I interviewed the lovely Charlotte Barry -fashion designer and winner of the Barnett Lawson trimmings award- for 1883 Magazine. Read the full article on 1883 Digital!
Yesterday I went to Georgia Hardinge‘s first sample sale in Hackney. This was probably the best sample sale I’ve ever been to in terms of the atmosphere; usually you have to shop with a bunch of people glaring at you and the designer either hovers in the background judging you or simply is not present. Georgia, on the other hand, greeted everyone who came in and cheerfully showed them all her wonderful pieces. (Also, there were cupcakes!!!)
Here is what I got;
I’m sort of dying over this jacket but it wasn’t at the sale! Check out the rest of her collections on her website.
London Fashion Week is over :( Time to catch up on sleep and sort through photos!
“Fashion trend inspired” cocktails at the Trafalger Hotel. Shouldn’t cocktails always come with nail polish?
Shooting interviews with Lewis and feeling very short.
Some of the 1883 Team; Me with Lewis and then me with Lucy (more here);
Be sure and watch the videos we made throughout fashion week! 1883 Digital

This week I’m in Switzerland shooting a fashion film for a friend’s Spring/Summer collection. I roped in some cousins, my mom and her boyfriend into building the studio I designed in the garden and it turned out pretty rad;
My mom and my cousin’s friend made me a director’s chair, haha;
The beautiful collection;
I’m off to Greece for a couple weeks! Will post when I return late July. In the mean time, check out my tumblr.
My boyfriend is taking me to Greece this summer, and as much as I’m excited to go, I’m having a bit of a wardrobe crisis. As someone who HATES the heat and refuses to spend more than five seconds outside if there is a chance of encountering sunlight, the idea of Athens in July is a bit daunting. My first impulse was to find a hat like this Valentino SS08 one…
…and live under it. And maybe install air conditioning in there. Then I started to think it might be a bit impractical as I don’t want to come back from Athens having seen nothing but my feet on the pavement and the inside an absurdly oversized hat. This led me to my (equally unpractical) second impulse, which was to hire people to fan me with Jean Charles de Castelbajac hand fans 24/7.
For obvious reasons, this is not going to work out. So now I’m all out of ideas. How does someone who hates sandals, sleeveless things, and white clothing dress for hot weather?
I interviewed model Ilona Platace for 1883 Magazine, check out the full interview and editorial on 1883 Digital!
Here’s a preview from another video I shot, with Una as my model and her Luxirare vest. Can’t wait to post the finished product! I’m just waiting on the music at this point :)
Here are the rest of the photos from our Geneva trip.
Una enjoying a kir in front of Agent Provocateur…how amazing is her McQueen wallet?There was a super cool antique shop full of old lenses and cameras and mysterious bottles…reminded me of what I imagine Borgin & Burkes to look like (Nerd alert: That creepy store on Knockturn Alley in Harry Potter).
I’m back from Switzerland! I thought I’d share some pictures from the trip…my friend Una came along and we took the train from Lausanne to Geneva for a day.
Visiting designer stores is WAY more fun in Geneva than in London because people treat you like you are going to buy things rather than following you around and glaring at you like they often do on Sloan St. Of course I can’t afford anything but its nice to pretend that you can :D
Una and I got our snack on to recover from all the pining over designer clothes.
We went to this boutique called “Septieme Etage” which was amazing. They had a Mad Men display downstairs (I had to try the typewriter) and heavily discounted designer pieces. We both got Phillip Lim blouses :)
Geneva is a really beautiful, clean city with gorgeous parks and a rich, comfortable vibe to it. I’d probably die of boredom living there since I love London too much but it was definitely an amazing visit…
