Tues 15th April: Gloved-Up Birthday

Laura a.k.a "Gloved Up" spent her birthday party on roller skates, dancing to the beats on wheels and inspiring a resurgence of trips to the local rink. Here are the gloves that she gave out to guests...............inverse generous gift giving............
Gloved up make gloves on comission for stylists such as Patti Wilson and Lucinda Chambers, designers such as Hetherette and Diesel and for musicians Madonna and Peaches............Anna Piaggi is a big fan too!

Tues 15th April: More Birthday Treats

Maki brought a perfectly fitting blue sparkly giftbag for my blue glitter makeup day. Contents of which, being my birthday presents .............hand crafted birds you can see here and an insanely lush concertina fold out book of artwork.

Tues 15th April: Butler-Style Boxes

Holly Ormrod joined the team in helping with all aspects of the collection. But I think that her favorite part might have been sole charge of designing and making the boxes for the pieces. As the accessories are so delicate, they need special care in transport. We solved the problem by cutting special boxes to house them. Recycling has proved not only environmentally friendly but also an unexpected graphic treat!

Saturday 12th April: Warrior Princess

My favourite stylist Susie Lloyd has requested me to make a new piece for a shoot with music artist Bishi. Based on a feeling of warrior queen/romantic pierrot - she wanted a cape with feathers. So I have breathed new life into this piece I had from another project. By making honeycomb balls and sequins out of aluminium coated fabric for some understated shimmer and femininity.
