Georgia Nash- The Gypsy Lady


An incredibly talented designer friend of mine, Georgia Nash recently opened up her studio at the end of London Fashion Week to showcase her new collection, The Gypsy Lady.


I used Georgia's pieces in Gabby Young's last music video-you can read our interview with her here.
Her collections are always a lovely mix of vintage materials and embellishments with a timeless contemporary style. There's always a certain fairytale element to her inspiration- her graduate collection was called The Nutcracker- see the headpiece below!


Pearls, lace,velvet and tapestry-inspired prints are all intrinsic parts of Georgia's unique aesthetic.


You can buy some of the latest collection here.

A piece from the collection made from swatches of fabric Georgia has collected over the years.

Georgia herself in one of her creations! See below for more of her work. I recently styled a shoot using lots of her pieces and can't wait to share it with you once its published!

Fashion Moves



Recently everyone went nuts for the models' moves in the new Lanvin video.Their awkward dancing did have a certain charm, but I don't think it even compares to Annie Monroe's moves in the video for Elizabeth Lau's new collection.The music is perfect-like the styling its completely timeless; a mix of both vintage charm and modern quirkiness. And I'm definitely investing in some bright pink lipstick.

Stand-out Stars of London Fashion Week

Having posted pictures of the catwalk looks from LFW I'd actually love to wear, now it's time for the fun stuff-the batshit crazy shows that go all out on creativity and throw practicality out the window.First up, Ziad Ghanem:
Having said that about wearability, there are a number of more conventional pieces amongst the more eccentric of Ziad's dresses - the pink silk corseted dress followed by a a similar red lace number- phwoar!Models with boobs!Stunning!Models (and lots of these characters aren't actually professional models) are so much sexier when they show some character and personality-when they don't all look like expressionless clones.
Meadham Kirchhoff also put on an incredible show, interpreting Marie Antoinette silhouettes through a neon pastel colour palette; such fun!Photos from http://www.londonfashionweek.co.uk/




The highlight of London Fashion Week for me was designer Inbar Spector who I've worked with for over a year now, dressing my client Gabby Young in her designers- here's a pic of Gabby in one of Inbar's creations:

Inbar's show just blew us away-we kept thinking every dress must be the finale piece as they were all such showstoppers. Having already worked with Gaga's stylist Nicola Formichetti, I know Inbar is going to be a fashion household name very soon. Her work has all the marks of real genius- originality, beauty and a uniqueness that makes her creations unmistakably identifiable as hers. I also took some pictures of this show on a lomography camera I was kindly lent by the lomography crew, so I can't wait to get them developed and see how they turned out. In the meantime here are some shots from my digital camera-they don't do the pieces justice at all though, these by 1883 magazine are much better.







LFW Highlights

I've had a very quiet LFW this year as I was working on both Friday and Saturday so missed most of the action.However, the wonder that is the internet means I have been able to catch up with all the shows online, so here's a very lazy blog post with my favourite looks from the catwalk. Will be posting about designers I did manage to catch up with later today, so stay tuned. All photos from http://www.londonfashionweek.co.uk/
