A week after the event, we finally celebrated Andy's birthday in the typical studio ritual of cava and cake.............but this time we got a bit creative to honour the dad-to-be with suitably grown up confectionary....................

Thurs 08 November Michael Clark Company

We had a props/stylist group outing last night to marvel at the latest Michael Clark performance at the Barbican.
The three parts build up to a crescendo in ochestra, choir and lighting. Its Clark trademark hip circling, fist punching moves but pushed to outer limits of stunning physical grace and synchronicity. Stevie Stewart's costumes deserve a special mention in the beautiful complexity of pattern cutting and fantastic recreation of Leigh Bowery's toilet seat neck piece.
Its on until the 10th so if you havn't been..........get yourself following that yellow line down there

Tuesday 6th November Uniqlo Store Launch

Uniqlo unveiled the 1st of their new London stores last night to the longest guest list the city has seen.............the Pantone rainbow of cashmere got the thumbs up from me...........
En route I had an unexpected intermission from a lost Jack Russell..........the shaky dog borded my bus at Kings Cross on his I had to scoop the little chap up and carry him back to the Pentonville Road until he spotted his owners........which turned out to be 2 drunks who gave me a big beardy smelly wet kiss as thanks.............
So sorry to all the fashionistas that I air kissed last night, who would have unwittingly transmitted a bit of 2nd hand genuine eau de London street.......
