Stalked: Tessa Packard, Jewellery Designer.

29 September 2014

When I stumbled across Tessa's jewellery a while back I couldn't help but do a double take at a certain collection called the Predator. A collection inspired by those dreaded evil bugs that attack us all while we're happily drinking our Pimms in the summer, yes the wasp!! I caught up with Tessa to talk jewellery and her love affair with fashion.

What do you do and what do you love about your work? 

I am a London-based fine jewellery designer specialising in bi-annual collections and bespoke commissions. Running a jewellery brand perfectly compliments my character: half of me is unstoppably creative while the other half of me is a workaholic and very much business minded. I also relish the opportunities and challenges that being an entrepreneur bring. Any goal is achievable but it requires patience and I prefer to work with the long-term in mind rather than strive for immediate gratification.



Stalked: Yanin, Fashion Blogger and YouTuber. Pretty Sickly

27 September 2014

After the Gyunel show I spotted this lovely lady and looking fabulous, combining the LBD (with a twist), with a divine leather jacket and killer clutch. Yanin is a Youtuber - a realm I haven't touched yet, I think I'll leave it to the experts though!!

What do you do and why do you love your job?

I'm a fashion blogger & Youtuber. I love it because it was a hobby of mine since I was in secondary school and I'm forever grateful I could turn it into a full time career. 


An Interview With Gyunel

24 September 2014

The show opened with supermodel Yasmin Le Bon, quickly followed by her daughter Amber Le Bon, this was one hell of a start to what was to be a very good show! From all the shows I saw this season, Gyunel still has to be one of my favourites. 

I caught up with this very talented Azerbaijan born designer after the show to quiz her on her latest collection and inspirations.

What do you do and what do you love about your job?

As Creative Director I make sure I oversee everything and as a restless person myself, this being hectic and demanding is something I enjoy. Another thing I love about what I do is watching my creative visions come to life. 



Stalked at LFW: Kelly, Reporter for SUITCASE Magazine

22 September 2014

The lovely Kelly I met during LFW at Somerset House looking rather fab!! Kelly is a fashion journalism degree student, writer, reporter and representative for SUITCASE Magazine. There's nothing I love more than a good old check on check outfit and Kelly wears this one so well!

What do you do and why do you love your job?

I am currently studying my third year of fashion journalism and earlier this year was lucky enough to secure a month placement with travel and fashion magazine SUITCASE. Since then I have been working closely with the team and the most inspirational youngest founding editor-in-chief in the world, Serena Guen. I have been lucky enough to manage some marketing and events for the publication including a pop-up magazine stall we installed in Old Street station earlier last month. As well as being a quarterly publication online and in-print SUITCASE curates various pop-up shops and events; the most recent being the Summer SUITCASE store located inside the Vinyl Factory in South Kensington, we have another in the pipeline for Winter so watch this space!

The exhibition at London Fashion Week is held inside Somerset House and exclusively for press and buyers.

Prepping for Fashion Week, where do I start?



Stalked: Rachel Boston, Jewellery Designer at London Fashion Week

8 September 2014


I've had rather of a jewellery crush on this little lady ever since she released her collection 'The Protector', which are a series of beetles and scorpions. It was hard to resist a little mid month purchase of the beautifully delicate but fierce 'Stag Ring', with rock 'n' roll jewellery like this, I'm like a child in a sweet shop!

Rachel Boston, a London born and based jewellery designer and maker, graduated in Jewellery Design from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. Her signature aesthetic of pure and strong forms find inspiration from unconventional sources: looking to nature, contemporary culture and high fashion to celebrate both the beautiful and the damned. 
Rachel's long list of press include features in magazines such as, W Magazine, Elle, InStyle, Grazia, and Vogue.

I caught up with this lovely lady as she prepares for London Fashion Week and her to-die-for pooch Betty, who I think you'll all agree slightly stole the show!!! 

What made you decide you wanted to be a jewellery designer?  And what do you love about your job? 

I was very lucky that I knew what I wanted to do very early on. During Design & Technology classes at school I always based my projects on jewellery and I made a lot of really horrible crafty pieces at home during the holidays and I knew that I loved working with my hands and especially working with metal. I love how flexible my job is, I’m never just stuck doing one task. One day I’m making a bespoke engagement ring the next day I’m shooting a lookbook for my new collection. It’s such a varied job and because of that I have to learn so much every day which I find challenging and therefore hugely satisfying. 


Giveaway: ELEVEN PARIS X SIMPSONS

2 September 2014

ELEVENPARIS are celebrating 25 years of The Simpsons with an exclusive capsule collection at Selfridges. So I thought, why not celebrate this awesome cartoon that most of us have grown up with (oh dear that shows my age!!) by doing a little Giveaway! As my regular readers may know, I don't do these too often, but this was far too special to pass up!!

The collection, which was launched at Selfridges last month, includes graphics of the key characters including Bart, Homer, Marge and Chief Wiggum on a range of unisex styles. The American football style sweater, features designs with ‘89’ written on the back, which purists will recognise as the date of our first glimpse into Springfield with the show's debut in 1989.

I have one of these very special t-shirts to giveaway............


Here's how to get involved...
