I wish I could spend all day, everyday, tracking the fashion shows at the recent fashion weeks but alas a book needs writing, a blog updating and a new consultancy project needs to commence. I do, however need to know what is hot and hip for the next season as […]
My Favorite things:
Peacocks on shoulders and pink fox fur mittens,
Chiffon in plisse and velvet bow clip ons,
Snake-skin and satin, all hues are sublime,

23 years I’ve worked in […]
Am supremely excited about the upcoming documentary of Bill Cunningham, highlighted by The Telegraph today.
Cunningham, 81, has documented street fashion in NYC for the past 50 years navigating through those famed streets on a rusty bike with a trusty Nikon.
This seemingly humble creative focused on every walk of life, and […]
Times have changed since I was at school, in my day there was no t’internet, no mobile phones and a fax machine was cutting edge technology.
If there was a central information site which listed fashion courses, creative workshops, had online learning, my world would have been different, and i have […]
