Friday 14th December: Shine

Thursday 13th December: Jelly Launch

We received the new issue of Amelia's magazine today which includes the feature that Andy Macgregor and I collaborated on. "I love Jelly". Here is a snap of us on the day in our studio with photographer Amy Gwatkin and her rainbow socks. It took many days of experimentation and layering of colours to achieve our psychedelic jellies. It was equally tense and fun when it came to gently warming the moulds to turn them out. The residue of sticky sugary mess at the end was quite something........

Wednesday 12 December: V&A

Today we are shooting in the V&A amongst all the artworks and artefacts. Getting lost in the libraries and discovering galleries of gigantic plaster casts of monuments that I have never seen before. This museum is maaaaaaaasive............I want to come back one day for a snoop at the permanent collection to rediscover its treasures ..........

This outfit is from a collection by my friend Alistair Carr circa aprox. 2002............over time I have been donated many treasures from his archive and here are some dream pieces based on a matador..............
