Oh jeeeeeez...once again, here do I start.....so many months of work then finally the unleashment all squeezed into one tiny blog.....well...I'll warn you now...it's unlikely to be a short one....
So...my show opened with an extra special performance of "How Much is that Doggy in the Window?" by my all time favourite performance artist SCOTTEE...I actually love him. Dressed in a dapper dog suit accompanied by the wonderful Jordan on his violin...the crowd was treated to this rendition before the beaut of a track especially produced by WARBOY kicked in......
oK...now to the make-up..which is one of my favourite bits!

This season saw a romantic and whimsical twist to the make-up with oil painted complexions and delicate dolly features trimmed with a couple of select "Prince Lancelot" inspired glittered jousting masks. Make-up creative direction goes to the amazing Rachel Wood using Benefit and her great team of artists from AOFM!
Next up is the amazing locks... Charlie Le Mindu was creative director of the hair for my AW09 showcase seeing beautiful, chunky Rapunzel inspired plaits and princess like fluffy crimps....oooh bravo....I LOVED the hair!!!!!!!!!

All about accessories......
We were honoured to have incredible footwear from Terry De Havilland gracing the catwalk....the shoes were awesome and a perfect combo for this collection....I fell in love with each and every pair!!! (big thanks to Terry and Eskimo PR!)
Our hosiery was sponsored by a totally divine Texas, USA based brand called "Celeste Stein"...I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE fan so was over the moon when they hopped on board!!! They are truly something else...the most amazing tights I have EVER encountered in my whole entire life!!!
It was a huge privilege to also work with the super talented Finch who created the magical accessories!!! check out www.finch-uk.com....this guy rockssss!!!!
Ok....so before I launch in with a million credits and before I let the show pics roll....I want to say an extra BIG special thanks to the amazing superstar stylist Alexis Knox....who worked incredibly hard alongside me as Creative Director of the show....She is a super hero.....ETERNAL THANKSSS PUFFY!!!!! (can I just explain the puffy thing right now....or it just sounds weird and scares all the hot boys away....to cut a long story short...our old housemate rocked in one day and called us both puffycakes...in a french accent...it was amazing....and we laughed...a LOT. 'Nuff said...innit?!?!?!?)
Get your chops around the show picssssssss!!!!!!!
