It's That Time of Year!!!!

Evening Jelly Tots!!
Oooh well that the cat is out of the bag and the relevant press releases have been unleashed, I guess it's time that I finally unveil the reasons for my sleepless nights....and being a hermit...AND stress generated chest pains....
Yes...I am doing a show at London Fashion Week this season!
If I had a pound for all of the times that people have, errr not so subtly, hounded me for the answer as to whether or not I am doing a show this season over the past few months...I would be so rich I would buy you all a one of those sick but fit clown necklaces from the Argos Catalogue....I will give some of these guys credit for the lengths they went to, to try squeeze it out of me...but UNLUCKY!!!!!Come on now guys,
I'm not stupid...Check my roots!(and they're actually pretty bad right now as I don't have time to tend to them!)...and no I will NEVER spill the beans if I've had too many gin and tonics!AND I could give anyone a run for their money in the gossip I know all the tricks!!!
So anyway, back to the point...yep...Im doing my stand alone show on the 19th September...YES PLEASE!Very exciting!!!woooo!!!
Anyone from the industry or press can request tickets by contacting
Love and SHOWTIME!!

My Drastic Career Change and a BUFFET!!!

Ooooohhh going anywhere nice on your holidays?!?!!?
I decided to toss away the tailor's sheers this week and get the kitchen scissors out to chop Adam's mop!!He loved it....Now he looks like he has just stepped out of a salon!!!I am very impressed with the results if I do say so myself!!!He looks FIT...and look how gloriously shiny it a mirror....oooh GLOSSYYYY!!!!
You can spy on him above with his friend Sarah the Geisha (yep...she loved it too, she tried to seduce him by playing a magical harpsichord in his ear!!!) Errr so yeah...I like to think that I am a hairdresser now....but, maybe Ill stick to cutting fabric instead!!!
Also a party went down in aid of James' never-ending birthday....Alexis knows how to put on a good spread!!!BUFFET-A-RAMA!!!

Polly Norton is Awesome!!!

Check out the masterpiece of the lovely model Suki Sou wearing Emma Bell AW08!!!!

The Word on The Grapevine!!

Howdy Pineapple Heads!!! I would like to say that I have a lot of hot, juicy gossip to report from last week....or some tales of being drunk in a gutter maybe...but the reality is that I don't!!The past week has been intense pattern cutting, sewing and fitting with a bit of veggie sushi shopping at the CO-OP thrown in!!!One bit of excitement was a big, bulging box of extra special fabrics arriving on the doorstep that I have been waiting in anticipation for....a clue...its sparkly and magical!!!So I cracked straight on with that!The rail for SS09 is turning into a plethora of treats so that makes me smile a lot!!!!
Aside from that I have officially been a hermit for the past 2 party or glitter times (well that's a bit of a lie, as a day can not pass without there being some form of glitter being rubbed onto my eyes!!!)however, it's been a ver
y productive week!!!It's always a good feeling when you can tick a few tasks off the list!!!
Once again, despite being exhausted, I can't sleep because I want to finish off reading " The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho...which is amazing!!I recommend this beaut!!!
Also this week I was enlightened on an amazing graphic designer and Illustrator called Arlene Rieneke....check out her's beautiful!!Take a look....I've fallen in love with it!!!

I've got a nice action packed week ahead of me which I am really looking forward to: some wrestling of the sewing machine, a few interesting meetings,I'm trotting off to the countryside to indulge in getting messy doing some screen printing for Spring/Summer 09...a visit from my lovely friend and fellow fashion bitch, Nicola, who is popping over from Madrid...yep, so that should keep me occupied! Also, next weekend is my housemate James' birthday...I might go all Betty Crocker and bake him a cake if he's lucky, then again,Ill see if I can be arsed!!!If I do, I might make a special apron for the occasion...then again....I might not!!!
Also, my myspace is going crazy since the launch of my featured profile which is really cool...although I really can't keep up with all the action despite trying my hardest!
Right, it's time to put the special, pink, heart fairy lights on and have some bedtime reading......ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Love and a Million Dancing Rapunzels,
(I like Rapunzel...sometimes when my friend Richard walks past my house and I'm hanging out the window like a naughty, skanky teenager having a cigarette, he shouts for Rapunzel...I love it!)

The Back of a Taxi, Namalee and Blackberry Bird Poo falling from the sky!!!

Bonsoir Poooffy Cakes!!!!!
I was enjoying a nice ride in the back of an old Addison Lee the other evening when I decided to indulge in a spot of reading of the free literature that they throw in for your viewing pleasure!!Imagine my delighted surprise when I spied my name in there!!The lovely Namalee has written a piece as the London Face about what floats her boat and the launch of her new single, 'Namazonia'!
"I can't get enough of Cassette Playa's beautiful cartoon clothes and Emma Bell's padded shimmery dresses:they make you look like a My Little Pony robot!"
Wooooooo thanks!!!!I love it!!!!You can see it above! And check out Namalee's myspace: and my amazing assistant Katie got shat on was sick but a cheap laugh at the same time....we were concluding the gossip before we departed when some purple stuff fell from the there's a lot of blackberries around that neck of the, my theory is that the naughty birds were stealing them all and that's the reason that the shower of crap was was so bright it actually dyed strands of our hair...we had to shamefully attempt to remove it by the roadside with a slice of special paper from my High School Musical notebook!!!It's good luck to get shat on, so maybe I will win lots of competitions in "That's Life"!!!
The pillows are calling me...(especially my one with the world map on!!)
Love and Sleeping Beauties,

Graduate Fashion Week!!

Hello Turkish Delights....yummy...especially the pistachio flavour...(That guy "Dollar", as previously discussed if you have been avidly perusing my blog...well he said that I looked 'Irish like a Leprechaun because you are a pistachio' the other day....the reason for this being that I was wearing a green cardigan...what a knob!)
So anyway....I finally get round to scanning this bad boy in and giving it a mention...apologies for the crappy scanning but the page was just way too big and it was too much of an effort to wrestle with the boxes beside the scanner to make sure it looked decent...but anyway, you get the gist!
So yes, my old Uni, Westminster recently whacked out their annual show at Graduate Fashion Week and of course I was there with bells on to see this year's creations and rising talent! I have to admit that I don't like the new GFW location at Earls Court....they desperately need new carpets and it all feels a bit rustic for my liking...give me Battersea anyday...they even have an ice cream van where I can purchase my favourite Mint Feasts from and have nice grass to sit on whilst indulging in a picnic....
Anyway, this year I was given the honour of being interviewed, alongside other hot names like Christopher Bailey and Katie Hillier, for the Westminster magazine to accompany the show...It was juicy!
My favourite showcases this year were Charlotte Kennedy and Caroline Roughly!!!Check them out!
Over and Out....

Emma The Tattoo Artist....

Evening Night-Owls!
(Also, here's a little bit of enlightening trivia for you....the Nightowls was also a really amazing radio station back in the day in Newcastle...this dude called Alan Robson used to present had a ridiculous theme tune that I loved and there was always lots of scary ghost stories!!!)
Anyway...check out my masterpiece of some creature called a Mongolian golden trunk monkey shrew that James had the honor of sporting...or something to that

As you can see...I'm now an expert tattoo artist...or not!Word on the street is when you are learning the tricks of the trade, that you practice on pig's I will not be picking up a pig carcass as that would not be very vegetarian of I guess I shall just stick to liquid eyeliner and Johnson's Baby Powder!

When Amsterdam came to Emma World!

Good Afternoon crazy teapots!!!
So, as you already know I chatted about a super hot, magical, stylistic visit from Joey Elgersma and the Amsterdam Clubkids a couple of weeks back! The encounter saw a collaboration between Emma Bell's collection and Joey Elgersma's styling talents, drinking glasses of pop in a hotel room way out west, then stepping into the unknown territory that is a spangly, polished club on the Kings Road dotted with girls who thought my simple H&M tights were like something from another planet?!hmmmm...
So anyway, as are a few snaparoos from the said night courtesy of Joey and photographer Dennis Branko!!!!
Peel your eyes for some viewin
g pleasure twinkletoes....

Moi and Joey!

New studio and Earplugs please!?

Good Evening?!
Where to start with this past week...its been a hectic razzmatazz of shifting boxes, sweating in tropical clima
tes on the sewing machine, pattern cutting galore,knitting and drinking chamomile tea...On Monday I moved into my new studio that I will be working in! It is GOURMET!!! Myself and my magical knit assistant extraordinaire made ourselves at home and we have now been joined by my other new intern Kathy, who just graduated from the same University that I did,Westminster!!!As they say "A rolling stone gathers no moss" so, it has been full steam ahead and the rail of glory is gradually becoming more juicy as an abundance of my SS09 pieces dance their way onto the hangers! So it's been a really exciting and very productive week!Check out the snap above of my new creative abode!
I also have to mention my yummy dinner last night....persuaded by the horrid prospect of walking home in the rain wearing inappropriate footwear we decided to skip playing masterchef and go out for some tastebud-tastic (I really need to reign the cheesy lingo in...I sound like a right knob) cuisine....We had the most amazing crispy tofu with lemongrass, chilli and ginger and one of the best veggie pad-thai's I have ever got my chops around!YES PLEASE!!!!

So after an exhausting week, I shun going out on a Friday evening and decide to stay at home indulging in some pajama and TV time...I also whipped up a quorn Lasagna which was quite a feast and could probably feed a small country for a month...anyway, I settle down watching "Shopgirl"...(only because Jason Schwartzman is in it and he is SUPER HOT, and my future husband... ) to hear that some dickhead has parked up his car outside my window, cracked open the doors and rolled out some curbside disco....I'm quite the curtain twitcher so, I was straight there for a cheeky spy....and what do I witness??? Actually some chump, whacking out an actual AIRPUNCH as he chants "Techno" several times?!Where the hell do these jokers spring up from!? I could even smell their dirty kebabs lurking their way through my pancake-thin windows...nice....
Luckily, only yesterday, Katie presented me with a pair of brightly coloured earplugs.....You can have a look at them and be jealous...are you jealous???YEP, thought so...and you can also see how well they compliment my wool!!!

Love and Midnight Feasts,
Emma xxxx
