Sorry this post is late but since the 3rd year started and since working at the magazine I am SWAMPPED! but in a good way of course! On Friday after the HUUUGE let down at showstudio, can you believe I got there after a long cold day working to find that the 'Fairytale' shoot Nick Knight was doing was already being wrapped up! Literally! grrrrrrrrr. Anyway Saturday brought forth a new day and new adventures...in the form of an old tram station in Holborn and a very very very very long colourful cord!This unique and underground project is by Conrad Shawcross, having completed a similar project previously completed a similar project, when approached with the available venue of a derelict underground tram station Conrad saw it as a prefect opportunity for his exploration of metaphors and perceptions of time. 'The Rope Machine' is a constantly moving machine that over month spun 81 colours of Anorak cord on 162 separate spools. At the end of the month (which is when I saw it) the machine had spun 300metres of rope. The rope is now a physical record of the installation over the month itself.
Conrad looks at the connection between time, life and different layers in reality, through the Rope Machine and I must say it was quite a breath taking experience. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take pictures of the artwork but I was able to take some of the tram station entrance and some props left over from films dating back to the 80's(tube map, station name), the below images are from the exhibitions site.

As we all love and admire Gala, I was very happy and excited to see her new collection for Spanish brand Adolfo Domingez. "The Music Collection" is a range that explores the relationship between music and fashion, Gala has written a great commentary of the collection on her blog, and the clothes can be bought world wide here.
Cant wait till Saturday, got a shoot to style for Sketchbook then off to meet the lovely Yang Du at her exhibition at the Assembly Rooms on Sliver st, will be great to do a short and intimate interview for the SB blog, also looking forward to her talking me through the exhibition and her SS10 collection (above) ....look out for the link of the feature next week!

Today was the press day for golden jewelery, so I dropped by this evening to have a look at the full collection (yes I can't get enough, its all just soo nice!) with me I had my trusted comerade Jo, who also enjoyed the wine and vintage jewelery... It was a great gathering, and I wish the golden girls the best of luck with the brand! I will defiantly be keeping up to date with it all. x
I don't usually blog about menswear (which is silly really as its what I initially wanted to go into when I joined the fashion world) but anywho.. (I guess the allure of womens fashion being more relevent to my life and wardrobe over-took that goal!) I saw these shoes on style salvage...."the Casely-Hayford "Ottoman" combines the delicacy of Turkish embroidery with the sturdiness of a Goodyear Welt to create an elegant summer shoe which retains a rigid masculine form. This style is based on the classic English brogue, but with the ornate scroll work of Ottoman embroidery and the unstained Sole unit, the English classic is given a new context and meaning."
which is loevly to hear as the Turkish culture doesn't usually make its way into fashion that often, so when it does.. the sad little me gets quite excited!

If I rode a bike around any fashion city, I would like to look like this! so elegant and ladylike! and in heels too...this is of big relevance to me as I am beginning to wear heels more often during the week.. in hope that one day I can wear them for every ocassion (including riding a bike effortlessly around Paris) without groaning and moaning that is!
