Just got back…

.. from a flying visit to Paris. I popped along for 24hours to the LONDON show ROOMS to say hi to the designers and the BFC team and to check all was going well.

I am completely in love with the designers’ collections. All three were truly outstanding. Seeing their work up close again – phwoar, mama! Lulu sure knows how to pick em. (Tash & I are gagging for a personal orders night as between us we basically want the lot.)

After set up I stomped around Paris for a bit. It was great being able to wander the streets and navigate myself to two iconic outposts of Parisienne style and taste: Colette and Laduree. I felt pretty smug not getting lost (for once). I accidentally bought some presents for friends & myself in Colette, including an extortionately priced bottle of Bernard Wilhelm for USLU airlines nail varnish, that’s a delightful murky green, named ‘Birmingham’.

If I were the kind of girl who liked to match I’d say it’d go perfectly with Claire’s hand illustrated devore top (must be mine).

On my travels round town I was stopped in my tracks by Maison E.Goyard where I couldn’t help but gawp at the monogrammed luggage. Dreams of chic Darjeeling Limited style matching suitcases and trunks ensued. Trouble.

Later, I teamed up with Claire and her team for a spot of dinner – superbly yum plats du jour of smoked sausage & lentils at Cafe de L’Industrie.

We all fell in love with this lady:

Buoyed by vin we stomped off in the direction of Saint Paul for a nightcap. Golly, the French love a bit of romance & drama don’t they!

See ya next time Bastille!

Thanks to [Fashion East's] Tash I’m totally obsessed with this song.

And it looks like the original singer of the tune is a little bit into Fashion East too…

Lately I feel like I’ve been properly plugged in. I’ve been super content. Not ecstatic, but just happy.

I think I’ve got a little groove going with work and I’m just so in love with my job and The Old Truman Brewery. I mean, look at these pics – how could you not love the OTB?

Diner Dinner

Last night was the launch of the Fashion East’s pop-up at START with window displays and a selection of SS12 by James Long and Agi & Sam.

A great time was had by all, especially me – chatting Ludacris with Sam, wanting James Long’s wigs, catching up with Louisa, getting caught in the middle of Pee Wee & Paul’s Paris plans… culminating in dinner at The Diner with MVDHorst, Madeleine and photographic duo Meinke Klein – where we ate a whole lotta meat!

The boys’ collections are in Start and online until 2nd May. 

New Year, New Job

As I explained before, I’m starting a new job. On Tuesday..

This time last year I was flu-y and bored, which led to much pondering on my life. I was resolute that five months after graduation it was time to really start getting known in the industry. [Although that may seem impatient to many, I should elucidate that my first internship was seven years prior to graduation.]

Well, 2011 was all I could have hoped for – and more.

I worked alongside Sasha at LibertyLondonGirl.com for the best part of the year – which has been an honour, a privilege and an education to say the least!
I attended London Fashion Week AW11 for Modabot.de and BLOW PR’s BLOWonline
I blogged for Hudson Jeans for seven months
I started writing for Ligature magazine
I consulted for Beaujais
I had my writing published in 1883 and SHOP magazines
I assisted Anna Trevelyan and Nicola Formichetti, during which time I suggested Obey My Demand lingerie, which Lady Gaga wore throughout her Born This Way video.
I began blogging for the Huffington Post and Dazed Digital
I went to Paris (for the first time!) with The Shirt Company – which was an adventure and a half.
I attended London Fashion Week SS12 with LLG – meeting and working with the fabulous Briony and Katie B.
I started trialling trainers and fitness classes, working predominantly with the fantastic Dean Callis
I started styling (including look books and a main fashion spread in Matchbook magazine) which culminated in some freelance work with the fashion team at Stylist magazine

Oh, and I got engaged! [See my Wedding inspirations here]

I have really worked and worked and worked – so much so that my only New Year’s Resolution this year is to stress less and have more fun! But you know what? It was all worth it, not least because I’m beginning 2012 with a very exciting new job which will no doubt bring more adventures and many a late night: I’ll be working at Fashion East with the fabulous Lulu Kennedy, who has just been awarded an MBE no less! I am so excited about 2012 and so grateful to everyone who made 2011 so fantastic! Happy New Year everyone.
