Starting off the day with an Off Schedule show the collection is shown in an industrial space. In the middle of this space was a drum kit which kept a solid jarring beat throughout the show. I, thankfully, was not hungover this morning yet my hardcore party goers collective heads pounded with every beat. The collection opens with a teal pencil dress with pleated oversized arms and shoulders creating a striking silhouette. Raw edges of fabric are exposed in a pair of trousers that are entirely made of fabrics swatches worn with a cream, boyish shirt. The shoes, sky high and heelless the models had much trouble staying upright in the shoes. The show ended with massive structured head pieces in wood and oil slick feathers with tailored trousers and corsets in soft tan/nude.

The collection was shown in two sections, firstly mainly outerwear, structured in fluffy felt fabrics with wide circular silhouettes and oversized hoods – a trend I am loving at the moment. Raw edges of fabrics were seen as well as open backs, slits and splattered prints in green and grey. The first section of the show seemed almost casual as the second half began with flowing maxi dresses in layered chiffon. Continuing with the splattered print and sea green and teal tones in high necked dresses. Across the body straps added an edge to the show.

Opening with a utilitarian shift dress featuring a leather collar and paired with a severe peaked cap the collection started in black but quickly developed into bright, bold colours such as red and blue with added flashes of sequins to boot. Cubic leather panels played across shift dresses before hem lines dropped and we saw fitted elastic jersey and silk satin maxi skirts split almost to the waist worn with t-shirt blouses often in leather creating a stark, effective contrast. A gorgeous piece was a tapered hem, plaid skirt – we are seeing so many of these tapered hems and it was refreshing to really love one.
Fluffy muff  (chortle) bags were slung low over shift dresses and wide, 1940’s esque skirts flowed from beneath the looser fitting t-shirt tops which was another brilliant contrast keeping the collection femininely chic yet also urban and wearable. 

Also the shoes were gorgeous. Shame on the model who took hers off AT THE BEGINNING of the catwalk.

This collection was fully created in knit which was chunky and looked like it had been created by hand by a cute old lady (the male designer was actually pretty good looking so no old granny backstage creating this sensible collection). Featuring mini slogans, alpine shapes and creatures and a range of primary and jewel colours this playful collection of men and womens wear was really enjoyable and appeared wearable. Male models worn mainly open jacket jumpers to show off the low slung drop crotch trousers and plenty of skin. Chunky knitted skirts and looped wool were worn over sheer chiffon tops to create contrast and rolled hems created structure. Some looks had an almost sporty edge with tiny mini shorts and cropped knitted tops. The collection was reminiscent of Ashish AW12 minus the sequins. Overall a great, creative collection.

A collection in all white began with wide lapels trimmed with fur on textured outerwear over tight fitting body con dresses and wide legged tailored trousers. Pencil dresses slit to just beneath the buttocks flashed legs and the flesh display continued with shift tops and mesh dresses that bore naturally shaped panels of leather giving the whole show a very organic feel. Leather trousers were seen and colour crept in with delicate tan and nudes.
Accessorised with all over metal hair grips and oversized leather clutch bags, the collection was put together beautifully.

One wintry day in February I awoke early to allow a hair and make up team, models and assistants into my home to prepare for a shoot. The snow had been falling thick and fast and our models had been called in at the last minute from the local area as people dropped out left, right and centre!

Our gorgeous girls arrived and were transformed before we trudged through the snow and into dense woodland.

Snowfall had hindered our Spring shoot slightly but also made for incredible light and such a surreal day which included snow angels, crouching in a stream, many an icy tumble on the floor and around 4 billion socks to wash afterwards!

Below are some of my favourite images from the shoot...

I was asked to photograph this SS shoot by Jennie Thompson who is the newly appointed editor of Limelight Magazine. Limelight is a volunteer run magazine free to schools, librarys and community centres throughout Croydon, Sutton and Merton. Jennie has interned for FashionCapital many times and I have continued to call on her for many a fashion favour! It was my turn to be useful!

Gathering together some of my styling extras, calling in samples and arranging models before picking up my camera and heading out into the snow it was a great feeling and its wonderful to see the finished product.

I hope you enjoyed :)

L’Oreal Professional – Mythic Oil

Any product that can repair my hair deserves to be written about. This oil, rubbed into dry or damp hair is slowly returning my straw like ghair to its natural softness! Its fucking incredible!
My hair smells like burning plastic when I straighten it and it is a running joke that I am going to be bald long before my male friends.
Enriched with a special blend of avocado and grape seed oil, this lightweight oil cares and pampers all hair types. Nourishing even the finest hair, the formula leaves hair looking shiny, feeling nourished and supple.
 I got this free in a goodie bag, but this is worth a buy for anyone who has overdyed and ruined their hair as I have.
