I have grown up on Zandra Rhodes, I remember as a child forcing my mum onto a coach from Wales and taking me to Zandra's famous Textile Museum in Bermondsey. To now be working with such a legend is such an honour and SO MUCH FUN! Zandra's studio is full to the ceilings with the most incredible sketchbooks rammed with drawings and mark making from her life long adventures........ Zandra choose 5 of her favourite sketches from these books and for the first time in her life digitally printed these sketches to produce this small collection, conveniently titled 'Sketchbook Collection'. Here are the shots by photographer Masha Mel. All headpieces by Piers Atkinson, accessories Zandra Rhodes and shoes Charlotte Olympia.

For the Dec issue of VOGUE I was asked to team up with photographer Thomas Cooksey to shoot a promo story dedicated to UNIQLO....... I actually really love UNIQLO as a brand, they exude confidence, know their products inside out and always stock the greatest colours!! I loved shooting this story and became even more excited to learn the images have gone in store and fill the windows throughout central London!

Rankin and I teamed up to shoot a series of portraits for Sunday Times Style / Dazed and Confused to celebrate Diesel's recent project with the Serpentine Gallery titled 'Culture club'. Key individuals, and members of the Serpentine committee, such as Dan Lywood, Mary Charteris, Amber Le Bon, Princess Alia Al Sensussi (and more) were each photographed holding their choice of artwork....
Here is a short film we made for the wonderfully talented milliner Piers Atkinson. Titled 'Directors Cut' this SS13 film, by Morgan White, captures Hollywood Glamour at it's best.

I love spotting new talent and when I first saw Kitty Joseph's RCA MA collection I had to meet her! As a lover of pattern and colour myself Kitty's work is totally up my street. Bold, brave, young and fresh. Kitty's acute eye for detail, confidence with colour and appreciation of weird and wonderful fabrics, such as neoprene, mesh, lycra and perspex make Kitty one of the most exciting newcomers in London.
I now work closely with Kitty, consulting and styling her collections and here are some of my favourite shots from our SS13 shoot with photographer Kim Jakobsen To. Hair Antonio De Luca. Makeup Zoe Taylor at Jed Root. Model Harper at IMG.
