Mon 3rd March: Animal Inspiration

I want to involve some animal motifs into my accessories line so I have gone back to the Mexican animals that we painted in the Summer for inspiration. They are just so cute, they have not worn out!

Sun 2nd March: Clearing out

I had to clear out some things from my brother-in-law's garage and unearthed some discarded treats belonging to my nephews.....

Sat 1 March: Final Fantasy

Last night I went over the road to the Kentish Town Forum to see Owen Pallett perform at a night he curated with a line up of other acts. Whilst he performed by layering loops of sounds from his violin, there was a fantastic live animation going on in the background. I eyed up the OHP before the performance with my geeky appreciation for these dinosaur pieces of equipment (of which we have 3 in our studio). I have never seen one used in this way before! As the sounds layered up, the animator layered up carefully cut imagery that would connect to become whole stories and moved with her hands. It was such an endearing way to illustrate songs on stage and beats any VJ that I have seen. (I have stolen this photo from flickr and cannot take credit it for it......its by John Gleeson)

Sat 1 March: Popsicle hairpins

Here is another picture from the current Dazed & Confused where Karen Langley used a selection of my archive accessories for an article on a new Mac range by the graffitti artist Fafi . The other image is the original portrait I took when I first made the popsicle hairpins in NYC back in 2005. My friend ADi very kindly obliged to be the model for this shot whilst working in her studio. This was one of the first pictures that I took to set up and make my website.............

Friday 29th February: Its all about outsized bags

I discovered on the blog that the set design from the Chanel show featured oversized accessories (this photo is from the original post shot by Rachel de Joode). I spent January making a giant Chanel bag myself, to submit for the political fashion project. Here you can see a still from my film that will be launched as part of a screening to be announced soon..............
