Yesterday I was blessed enough to work with the amazing Ziad for Firetrap denim wear – Maiden Britain. The show was full of originality, colour and inspiration. For sure many of these new styles will be seen in the trendsetter seen in venues across the world from Hoxton to Brooklyn.
Congrats to Ziad, look out for the press to follow, this is sure to be big. Alexis Knox said it & she has never been wrong to date…quote that!
On the 21st of September, the on/off LFW venue hosted the Orschel-Read S/S 2010 collection. On display were both ready to wear collection & couture. The collection merges couture liberty fabrics with wearable silhouettes and accessible tailoring, marrying innovative leather work, contemporary pagan influences and organic materials. I had the pleasure of working with what is surely one of Britain’s brightest young designers on the look book a week before. So it was a pleasure to work with his creative and driven energy again. I’m sure we will be seeing a lot more of Stefán in the near future.
So it's that time of year again. London Fashion Week is here. I've been casting non stop, booked a couple shows and options, so just got to wait it out now. But while in the day time its all work, there has been plenty of play time in the evening. A couple nights ago I went to Bart Bar to see my god friend Andy K and brother Nial play a lovely set, had a drink with some old mates, good to bump into some old faces. I should have made it to the EM party, but time got on.
Last night I went to the opening of the Pull & Bear store on Oxford street. The lovely Alexis Knox having styled the campaign was also on door duties, and was lovely to see her, in fact i got to spend a couple hours with her earlier that day. If you don't know Alexis work be sure to pick up a copy of Notion Mag to see the fashion editors contributions, to what has quickly become a fashion savvy savior of the music infused magazines. There were some great little feature is the Pull & Bear party including a photo booth at the back, a great little spread, and drinks galore. I left Pull & Bear to pop across the road to the Hill's party. Was supposed to meet a friend who was DJing, missed the gorgeous Jodie just, but had a good time anyways. So here are the pics of the lovely goody bags I pick up on my way through.
I recently shot a editorial for R.A.K.E magazine. The editorial was based on the film "Borsalin". I had an amazing time, on a 4 day shoot out in Tuscany. The whole Team were amazingly talented, and we had a great time both on & off set. With many memories I will treasure forever. I can't wait too see the final edits.
Here is a sneak peak taken behind the scene's off the shoot with Santini.
