February - An Update With Love

Faithful Reader! It's time again to reflect on the month that was. February has been hard and long, and I've grown poor and weary, which is ridiculous as its supposed to be the shortest month of the year (damn those leap years, damn you.) Anyway, balloons were blown, Kusama was seen, Brighton beach was walked up and fish was cooked - lots of fish. This weekend sees the beginning of our first real installation at Selfridges of the year, designed soley by the in-house team. Yes, its time for the windows that I've helped design to finally go in - OMG. Emails have been sent, phone calls have been made, debates have been had. Never has so much been said over the size of a bull dog clip or the consistency of plaster - oh Faithful Reader - you are in for the BIGGEST MAKING OF treats ever. Not only that, but the windows along Oxford Street are going to be the most ambitious we've ever attempted. Watch this space - they launch next Friday. As March begins, I'll be turning nocturnal again for a while. Check back tomorrow for a WINDOWS TEASE and in the meantime, enjoy the rest of February. By the way - the picture at the top of this post is not the Guggenheim, but it could be. In fact, its my flat in Shadwell. It looks the same I tellz ya!

Impromptu Installation

If you were headed down to Selfridges last week, you may have come across our beautiful balloon installation for the launch of the new Women's Designer Galleries space - 30 giant orbs suspended and floating in the marble lined space.

Faithful Reader! I hope you enjoy these brand new images shot in collaboration once again with my good friend Poppy French. Poppy and I were approached by Womenswear designer, Samite Ostanevica, to shoot part of her look book with 12 other photographers for an exhibition of her new collection. This was an unusual but brilliant way to showcase a look book, bringing together a whole load of photographers and stylists under one project - each approaching Sarmite's collection in their own unique way. The exhibition is currently running at the Testbed1 venue in Battersea, and will be up until the end of Sunday, capitalising on the London Fashion Weekend.
