Fashion & Design Exhibitions
Readers, if you think I’m one of those who look forward to going shopping, think again. I don’t like shopping at all. That may partly explain why I am now making my own clothes. Going inside a clothes department store is akin to be sentenced to watching the Twilight Saga trilogy (no kidding, […]Continue Reading... 5 Comments.
When I was a student in Interior design a few years ago, lighting design was by far my favourite subject. Technical topics aren’t usually my strongest points – a look at my past school reports in Physics would speak volumes – although strangely enough, I enjoyed working with lighting formulae. Just to show you […]Continue Reading... 5 Comments.

Remember the curtain fabric I talked about a little while ago? My super talented friend Lola is actually painting them for another friend of ours called Penny who purchased this painting from Lola: I personally love this painting which is hanging in Penny’s bedroom and is the main inspiration behind the design of the […]Continue Reading...

There has never been a more pertinent time in my opinion to attempt to follow the trails of how our garments are made. It is no secret that cheap imports have swamped the High Street in the past 20 years, but the extent to which they have destroyed home-grown manufacturing is quite shocking resulting in […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
To say that Clerkenwell Design Week has made an impact on the London design scene would be a bit of an understatement. Boasting over 60 showrooms and hailed as one of the most acclaimed trade events on the international design calendar, I made yesterday the relatively short journey to London EC1 for their opening day […]Continue Reading...

I fear like there is a bit of a twisted Japanese theme going on in my life at the moment and I’m going to blame it all on The Grudge, since watching the movie again a week ago. The plot was weird but the scene with the ghost captured on security camera really freaked me […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
