Emma's Asian Adventure 2008!!!!

Sawadeeeee!!!(That's hello in Thai, don't you know?!) now the reason behind my disappearing act....and an explanation as to why I havent updated my blog in like a month!

December saw me finally finding a moment to have a bit of time out and do my annual trip of, with backpack in tow I scuttled off to South East Asia for an inspiration trip, come fabric sourcing quest, come holiday! And I have returned with a big, fat, juicy journal and some SUPER GOURMET fabrics and trims for my AW09 collection!!!I'm so excited to get sewing!
Muchos as I LOVE's always fun to unleash from the box every now and then and brew on a bit of variety....and I feel as though my optical, feast of foreign parts, 2008, may keep my itchy feet ermmmm....un-itchy, for another few months...well maybe....
So....the trip of dreamzzzzz......
As ever it wasn't a straightforward endeavour.....the day before I was due to fly into Bangkok, my flight was cancelled due to the political drama kicking off in the airport...
So my flight suddenly turned into a TROPICAL, re-route of TREATS!!!My whole trip (which was initially planned as an overland adventure of Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos) had now turned on it's head which meant Hong Kong and Malaysia had now been thrown into equation?!!?
So, to cut a long story Asian Adventure 2008 now saw me hitting Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and Hong Kong....and I had the most AMAZING time!!!
I could go on FOREVER AND EVER telling tales of the travels....but you would be sitting here for if you really want to know all of the gory details....then feel free to pop round mine for a Chai and a flick through the bulging journal.....

However.....I will hit you up with a few choice segments....and some cheeky photos!!!!
Believe it or was exactly a year to the day when I touched down in Hong Kong since I had last visited HK......I absolutely LOVEEE's everyway.....I got to hang out with Gloria and visit all of my favourite places as well as do a LOT of shopping!!!eeek!I knew at this point that by the end of the trip the backpack would be busting at the seams! On my first day there I also had a drama in that at 7am the hostel I was staying in got raided by the police in a "routine check" to see if the place was being used as a brothel?!?!After a 14 hour flight and very little sleep....I was not best impressed to wake up and find the police standing at the foot of the bed!!! this is totally the abridged version of the WHOLEEE trip which breaks my heart as I would love to sit and bore you for hours with the whole spiel....... next port of call saw me hitting Malaysia which was amazing and gave me a chance to spend some time with my old housemate, Siz Siz, who I used to live in Wembley with, a couple of years back!

I had an awesome time in Malaysia...spent time in Kuala Lumpur and in a town called Melaka on the west coast.....It was here that I picked up a lot of bits and bobs for the new WATCH THIS SPACE!!!! Malaysia ROCKED!!I loved it....!!!
Thailand, to this day....from every country I have ever visited in my life...still remains my most favourite place on earth....I love Thailand so much...and to be honest it will take some beating....and to date, even though I've been utterly amazed by everywhere I've been since...Thailand still rules the roost!!!
So, it doesn't take a genius to work out that I was SOOO EXCITED to be paying it a return visit!!!And I was meeting Alexis there so it was set to be a corker!!!

One tale that I will indulge in....So me and Alexis were sitting enjoying a bucket or 6 of super strong Thai Whiskey and Red Bull....when all of a sudden a knob of an American lad rocked over to the table and whipped his balls out...he them proceeded to attempt to put them in our bucket of thing we know some 7 year old street urchin boy had nicked his baseball cap in retaliation....before we know it the street urchin is taking a beating from the American dude and two Ladyboys have been knocked to the decks in the thing a street brawl had erupted and we had a pile-on situation involving a couple of trannies, the street urchin, the dickhead and our new ginger mate from Glasgow.....I happily sat back enjoying the spectacle and polishing off the cocktailio!!!!It was a of the funniest incidents of my life!!!!
Our next leg of the travels saw us heading to Vietnam...a country I have dreamed of visiting FOREVER!!!!
I spent my 26th birthday in Hanoi in Northern Vietnam which was amazing and the day saw a Water Puppet theatre show, Ice cream at a place called "Fanny's", lunch by a beautiful lake and lots of backstreet shopping and rickshaw riding!!!!
Vietnam also saw an amazing venture to the INCREDIBLE Halong Bay in which we sailed around all of the islands in a traditional Junk Boat!!!Sooooo pretty!!!!!

I think without sparkling a sleep-a-thon Ill call it a day with the travel stories!!!!Believe it or not I actually took....950 photographs and wrote a squillion pages in the journal about the whole escapade....
What I will say is, December was totally trip was filled with temples, chopsticks, Buddhas and rickshaws.....monkey infested caves brimming with Hindu shrines, ancient ruins in Ayutthaya, side-stepping through a million motorbikes in Vietnam, and abundance of tofu!!! The most incredible experience!!!And of course.....10 passport stamps later and double the luggage weight I left with....I have returned with some SUPER SPECIAL fabrics and influences for my new collection!!!
Love and Asian Antics,
Emma xxxx

"Emma Bell's Vault for Vauxhall"-The Aftermath!

So finally I have a minute to write and tell you all about what went down on the much anticipated "Emma Bell's Vault for Vauxhall" of which I was appointed as Creative Director of with Vauxhall Motors!!!6 weeks of super hard work and the result was most definitely worth it!
So where to start...after a couple of all nighters putting the finishing touches of glitter on props....chasing up the finer details....We were up bright and early at 5am to load all of the goodies into a van (that strangely smelled of beef...gross) driven by a dude called Paulo...
Me and superstar production manager and creative mastermind, Alexis Knox, rocked up to the Vaults at London Bridge with our amazing team (thanks Rosie, Russell, Emma, Eleni,Katie, Lucy, Natasha, Will, Adam...sorry if I forgot anyone!) and prepared for the arrival of candyfloss machines, hot dog man, mystical forests....
The venue is HUGE....400 metres long...with 25 individual vaults!

One of my favourite parts of the day was seeing Will rock his special tree costume...I've never witnessed such a corker of a robe in my life....

So the doors then cracked open to the world of dreams....taken through a darkened maze lit with UV with the spooky sounds of Mario Brothers haunted castle....woooo spooky....I especially had a cheap laugh as I heard people's screams echo down the corridor!
Then the party times began....cupcakes, Lambrini, stilt walkers, candyfloss, hot dogs, a coconut shy and funfair's from a car from the AMAZING Charlie Le Mindu....a corker of a performance from the one and only Scottee....Scottee rocked a beaut of a spangly outfit by Lee Benjamin as he flounced in his ball pool amongst glitter and tinsel....

And now some tropical beats for you to throw some shapes at....
We had celebrity guest DJs in the form of Jodie Harsh, Ebony Bones and Frankmusik....YES PLEASE....

Then came a second chance to see my SS09 collection, as seen on the catwalk at London Fashion Week.....With super special make-up from artist Melissa by Charlie Le Mindu and my amazing models....the clothes trotted their way down a pink glitter catwalk peppered with specially Emma Bell commissioned cars!

This was one of the most exciting and challenging projects that I have ever worked on and I am so happy that it was such a great success!Check out some cheeky snaps......

And of course the extra special Vauxhall cars!!!!

oooh yes...and for your viewing entertainment....what went down after the doors had closed......

Love and Vauxhall Party Times!!

Pumpkin Carving, Rainbow Cupcakes, Fireworks and COCKTAILS!

The annual ghostly festivites saw me departing London for a magical bash in Hertford courtesy of Gina...although I kept announcing I was going to Kent....I still can't get a grasp of these Southern places despite being away from Up-North for almost 7 years now!!!
So I trotted off on the train to the middle of the countryside and it was nice to have a break away from London Town.....
The evening kicked off with cauldrons of crisps, pizza and pumpkin well as several gin and tonics!

The next installment of the evening saw us donning our winter wooleys and heading outside for some Britney, Fireworks, Sparklers and a well as a drunk or two rolling around in the mud!!!

My pumpkin!!! Baking Time!!

Then as you can see came my FAVOURITE bit of the night....cake baking!!!
We made some extra special Rainbow Cupcakes....covered in rainbow frosting AND edible glitter!!! The were amazing..........feast your eyes!!!Yum!!!

Movie time.............

The following morning...we all trotted off to a jumble sale.....where the average age of attendees was about 90!!!It was a near on bunfight for the goods....but I mean what can you expect when you can pick up bargains for a mere 10p!!!
The aftermath and the unleashing of the purchases..............

Love and Pumpkins!!!!
