errrmmm I don't know where to even start...the past 7 months since my last show have been super hardcore in the preparation of last Friday 19th September...even from last December when I found myself trekking around the Far East scribbling in journals and sketchbooks and sourcing the perfect fabrics in the weirdest markets ever.....BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!From the design, to sourcing, to pattern cutting, to making....to spending months knitting and bejewelling, to juggling special freelance projects.....it's been incredibly intense!
And finally on Friday my new collection was unleashed!!!
As my SS09 collection was unveiled on the catwalk of London Fashion Week at Vauxhall Fashion Scout....we saw an amazing presence from my ULTRA ULTRA SPECIAL creative director and stylist Miss Alexis Knox....http://www.alexisknox.com/....as well as INCREDIBLE phantasmagorical hair directed by the AMAZING superstar stylist Charlie Le Mindu...http://www.charlielemindu.com/....FANTASTIC accessories from Keko Hainswheeler...http://www.kekohainswheeler.com/.....JUICY make-up by Rachael Wood and SPARKLETABULOUS jewelled masks by Melissa Lee!!!!
Not even to mention the BUBBLY PINK CHERRY LAMBRINI from my AMAZING sponsors LAMBRINI!!!http://www.dothelambrini.co.uk/....and of course INCREDIBLE graphics depicting a feast of jelly beans....sick clowns....buffets galore by Hidden Agency!!!http://www.blogger.com/www.hidden-agency.com!!!!AND NOT FORGETTING THE UNLEASHMENT OF MY MAGICAL OPENING FILM BY JAMES BATLEY...http://www.jamesmakesvideos.com/.....
A brief bit of spiel about my latest collection for SS09.....it was inspired by weird twisted fairytales involving magic tablecloths and bizarre entities living in glitter encrusted shacks courtesy of a food-stained skanky book I found in Oxfam for £2.....all you can eat buffets where you can gorge yourself.....Russian folklore involving arrogant, cheating, super hot princes with curly moustaches, French Revolution style decadent dinner parties on a mystical planet at the other side of the galaxy.....
Ok now for some special thanks.....now there are A LOT of people who have helped me soooo much and it would not have been possible to do this without them....
I would firstly like to thank MY AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING first assistant Katie Mudford...who has spent months knitting with me as well as well as EVERYTHING else including entertaining gossip sessions....trips to the co-op...getting shat on by birds who had been eating blackberries......burning the midnight oil...tra la la la......THANKS KATIE!!!!
