Here is the irresistible new knitwear collection by Cooperative Designs which have just released their press shots to Vogue.com (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........

Paloma Faith has just had a profile published in Italian Vogue and this is a portrait originally submitted for the piece by Ram Shergill. It was styled by K A B I R and uses my tiger head piece and Scott Ramsay Kyle's sparkle fringe dress which K A B I R discovered on the night we subconsciously synched by jointly dressing in rainbow attire back in September.

Scott sent over his look book this morning for his new A/W collection that previewed at the Super Super runway show in fashion week. He is the master embroiderer and the busiest man in the business...........juggling show pieces for Biba alongside his own line and commissions from stylists Sarah Richardson and Jane Howe.

The hair stylist Lyndell Mansfield had a fancy dress birthday party in the theme of fantasy which gathered many varying and hilarious interpretations...............it 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!
