Up on the roof at Big Sky, chilling blue skies and dramatic clouds, then down to the studio to mix it up.Continue Reading
Anna sported a very Stella look for the Adventure issue. Game for pretty much anything, leaping barriers, shuffling up air vents and generally being a solid fab model, she produced some amazing poses giving the clothes an incredible silhouette against the sun.

The House of Subversion was a project in Craig’s mind for a long time. With 6 models and countless changes it was a challenging day but we were so pleased with the results. Chloe and James were the glam squad.Continue Reading
Hyde Park is the venue once again for the Burberry extravaganza. What will Mr Bailey show – Who will be here on the front row, which is always Celeb heavy, and When will I be able to get my greasy paws on it. I know I shall Â desire at least one piece in a ridiculously over the top way.
The trick is to keep the watches still. The elaborate behind the scenes can never be shown, for fear of giving away the trick. Much like a magician…. Still the security guards all present and carefully watching their pieces were quite impressed with Sarah and my ability to work the watches.Continue Reading
â€˜All you need for a movie is a gun and a girlâ€™
- Jean-Luc Godard
Packing Heat transports viewers through a journey of reality, subconscious, conscious and fantasy. The colourful powder blows that mirror the beautiful hues of the lingerie can be seen through out the short film. The ultimate fantasy of girls, guns and power is reflected by Liberty here, and makes this a definite wish for both the men and the women who wear the pants (so to speak)Continue Reading
Decadence and old fashioned glamour walked through the British Museum at London Fashion Week…Continue Reading
Marni SS12 showed in a sweltering Milano on Sunday. You can watch the show here. Italian delights…Continue Reading
Burberry don’t do things on a small scale and every season the RTW Prorsum show out shines the previous season. Last February, Mr Bailey made it rain – indoors – so what ever happens later this afternoon it will have to be rather big to topple the control of weather.Continue Reading
One of the first shoots of the year,Â you have seen the behind the scenes and video so now the final images.Â Elizabeth Gibson and I wanted to shoot lingerie with a feminine touch but without being too girly. Chloe Butcher provided powerful, incredible make up and James Langan, who you may know as a Great British Hairdresser finalist, built an outstanding silhouette of hair.

Bright colours and lightweight fabrics are all made for the spring and summer. Take your pick of the trends, lace, pleating or neon and wear as you like, perhaps with a little inspiration from us and our story….Continue Reading
So 16 pages is a fair amount to achieve, but we did it, even though we had a great deal of natural force against us. Wind, rain and ‘flu (for me). All I can say is enjoy the full results of another cracking team effort here.Continue Reading
Capturing the fading summer sun amongst the trees and fields. George and Milou were thrown in the deep end, literally, into the river and richly rewarded. See the full narrative here.Continue Reading
Final layouts for the Soho story and Craig does it again. Sometimes getting up at the crack of dawn, working in the strangest of places and pushing the team makes it all worth while. Click here for full story.Continue Reading
In the pitch black and tripping the lights (or so it seemed) James Stroud created these amazing visions with a handful of colours and a little movement.
Filters and gels were applied to the lights to link the images together in colour but everything is else is natural â€“ well as natural as can be in a black hole with a runway.Continue Reading
Discovering the seedier side to Soho was interesting to say the least. Tattoo parlours and rehearsing studios are tucked away in the depths of Soho and Tottenham Court Road. It is not pretty but oh how it has seen some of the most creative talents, famous or otherwise.Continue Reading
LohraLee Astor was strung up like a puppet, literally. She was transformed into a French marionette by Chloe Butcher and Craig Marsden, who were providing their skills for makeup and hair, respectively. From the delicate eyelashes which were becoming more and more intricate every shot to the ever growing volume of hair that Craig was fashioning into the most fabulous shapes.Continue Reading

Heavier knits from Paul and Joe against the fragile underwear and silk layers from Lacivious and Paul Smith. Craig Fordham produces yet more images for the book we are working on.Continue Reading
Craig has had this idea for ages, so the pressure was on to perform to perfection. Going back in time and reflecting on a time when football was played in the longest of shorts, heaviest of boots and you always were in school uniform blazers made of heavy wool beforehand.Continue Reading
The sad news that Vidal Sassoon had died swept over my twitter feed in a frenzy. Young guns may not realise that there is actually a hairdresser of this name who created the empire that they walk past on the high street. Not only has he nurtured a legacy, he also changed the way of hairdressing.Continue Reading
I had the chance to hear the wonderful photographer Tim Walker in conversation at Somerset House last week. It is a rare opportunity for this man rarely takes the spotlight, and even for the talk he was to the side, almost in shadow, as the projector showing his work took centre stage.Continue Reading
