Thursday 20th March: Cooperative Designs

Here is the irresistible new knitwear collection by Cooperative Designs which have just released their press shots to (see link). It was shot by my Amy Gwatkin in her new studio space which I helped paint and decorate for this shoot. When we first visited Annalisa and Dorothee to preview the work in progress, it was still wet from being washed and smelt reassuringly and comfortingly sheepy. So nice to see the initial inspiration of the emblems through to the samples and finishing up with a look-book shot on this Mariacarla look-alike who is a friend and not actually a model! Perhaps this is the start of something........

Saturday 15th March: Lyndell's Fantasy Theme Birthday

The hair stylist Lyndell Mansfield had a fancy dress birthday party in the theme of fantasy which gathered many varying and hilarious was tricky to know who was behind the costume. Here she is opening one of her cards and again with Chloe Kerman and Georgina Graham. The prize for the best dressed duo had to go to Leith Clark and James Hatt(er) who looked very at home in their chosen Lewis Carroll alter egos. Im not quite sure what I was, but I wore the iridescent blue butterfly wings we made last year and pulled together lots of blue left-overs from the VIVA installation............which I stuck in my hair and glued to my face........... my eyebrows are now slightly balder after ripping off the sequins I had decorated them with!
