Helloooooo from Viennese Whirls!!!
So once again I've been totally hopeless at updating my blog...the reality is...my Fish and Chips project has taken over my life and pretty much consumes my every waking moment!!!In exciting news...in the exhibition has been open for 10 weeks so far and we have racked up an almighty 22,000 visitors!! Epic! So I'm super happy about that and it's nice to see after so many months of hard work such a positive response! Alongside working on the exhibition I have been working on additional items of my special showcase collection which replaces my seasonal collections this year, so watch this space for when I unleash those as right now it's sewing central in my studio!
Alongside the exhibition the programme has seen allsorts of exciting features including kids workshops with JEF that I hosted alongside a bunch of great talks, discussions and New Designer Showcases!
I've also been making the most of being based in Central Europe at current so I have cracked out the backpack and trotted off on a few travels with the journal to hand! Berlin...Poland...Budapest...there's been many a story and plenty of drama!
One of the recent bits and pieces that I was involved in recently outside of Fish and Chip World saw my work being featured in the 'Clothes Show London' catwalk shows last month....
Superstar stylist Alexis Knox embraced with panache the mammoth task of styling the entire mainstage show at London's Clothes Show at Earls Court produced by The Doll agency..a 3 day extravaganza featuring 7 daily shows and 280 outfits! Looked awesome and I was so pleased that my pieces could get in the mix!!! Ch ch checkkk out the pictures 'innit! Great job Knoxy!
So that's the basic speile of what has been going down! There's a couple of really exciting projects in the mix...one of which sees me moving to Japan in a few weeks time to spend a few glorious months living and working there...but that warrants a post of it's own so I shall savour that for next time!
Don't forget to keep an eye on my 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?!' project as it storms through it's final weeks: http://www.fishandchipstwiceplease.blogspot.com
And that's the juice of what's been happening!
Love and biscuits
