Mood - THINK BIG

Happy December, I hope you are all starting to feel festive. I certainly am! Especially after Monday evening where I attended a 'Wreath Workshop' with the talented London based florist Penelope Mercer

After a busy day at the studio the smell of fresh moss and fern was invigorating. This was topped off with a warm glass of fragrant mulled wine, my first of the month. I am thinking BIG in the new year. I plan to attend a lot more workshops and events to grow my contact base and meet interesting and like minded people.

My Picks - Jil Sander Spring 15 RTW

I have just returned from Hong Kong where the luxury market is thriving. I always pop to Lane Crawford in Pacific Place which also houses stores including Céline, Burberry and 3.1 Philip Lim. 

Lane Crawford really buys into each designer collection which makes it a lot more concise compared to its competitors. You get a much better sense of the brand and its message. Jil Sander is housed there and although once again their has been internal changes the brand is still true to its identity.

This spring, silhouettes were simple but striking. The show began with a school uniform vibe. Moving onto woven geometric jacquards, cocoon shirting and knitwear.

More PFW Street Style


Tommy Ton has captured up and coming trends in his definitive snap shots for Spring 15 during fashion week. The street style photographs show key trends surfacing including the nod towards the 70s. Including A-Line skirts, polo necks and flares. Larger lapels, patch pockets and twin needle top stitching are seen across softs and wovens. 

Then we head to the 80s, looking at classics such as dungarees paired back with the crisp white shirt.

Mr Start Woman SS15

Working moodboard/details/inspiration

Since I decided to become a freelance RTW designer a year ago I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of exciting projects. I thought I'd share one of the latest ones with you guys as it is true to my personal aesthetic. I have been working with the development and production team at Mr Start in Shoreditch designing their new SS15 range. 

Known for androgynous, minimal tailoring. Mr Start Woman continues to encapsulate the Uptown girl gone Downtown. For SS15 she goes about her day with a certain nonchalance - in soft cashmere sweaters, slit pencil skirts, easy wrap blazers and her borrowed boyfriends shirts. Lengths are longer, shapes are leaner. 
She is creating new rules of dressing with a re-energized confidence.
