That's How A Pumpkin Grows

Brian Vogan has a new CD "Little Songs" and a new music video for the catchy children's song "That's How A Pumpkin Grows". I had lots of fun illustrating and directing this animated piece created in team with the great people of FashionBuddha Studio.

DAHRA Collaboration

“Play.Create.” is the fourth project and second exhibition of DAHRA (Designers Against Human Rights Abuse) created by the designer & artist Rishi Sodha. Basically the invitation was to customize a a Kid Robot ‘Munny’ doll, The premise is the project that 10 product designers, 10 graphic designers and 10 children will all customise these dolls on the theme of play and creativity for an exhibition and auction to show the inherent links we all share in creativity and how we are all equal in that respect despite our age. All money raised will go to Barnardo’s (a UK based children’s charity) as well as 10 children being treated to a day of inspiring workshops and fun art activities where they will customise their dolls.

The exhibition will be held in London in early November (location to be confirmed) And this is my custom Munny.

flower girl

I'm loving the flower hats from Moschino Cheap and Chic's new show - they're almost edible!

Whoops! I was a little late for the Burberry show last night and after standing about in the freezing cold I was finally let in to peek over the crowds instead of taking up my part of the bench between Mary-Kate and Daisy (as you can see they were obviously disappointed about that =;x)

It was a gorgeous show, I didn't expect anything less and by the final confetti fall there was a whole list of wanted outfits in my moleskine.

I'm off to find Sonny, he's the whole reason I was late, he borrowed my limo and was late to return it and my lovely driver. I'm going to do some serious Manolo foot stamping!

Luella love continues plus more tipoffs

So I know how much I harp on about Luella but just look at this collection - young, fresh, gorgeous, how else would you want to be described. I WANT the whole collection!

whilst I was at the shows I also spotted these little beauties...

granny underwear as outerwear at TwentyEightTwelve

menswear inspired loveliness at Paul Smith

graphic spots at Josh Goot

playful pastels at Topshop Unique

and structured floatiness at Christopher Kane

I'll be instructing my PA to put an order in for these very soon!

Sunday Sweetness

I am in love with Erin Fetheston. Why have I never worn her gorgeous clothes before? And she is so adorable with her white blonde bangs. Mummy presented me with a beautifully wrapped box yesterday and when I got home I opened it to find this outfit inside. Isn’t she clever, she said she saw it and immediately thought of me. Also in the box was the look book which I have been cooing over all morning. Apparently the collection was inspired by the nutcracker’s tin soldiers and other tales of toys springing to life – how sweet! I’m going straight out to get the pastel flower print cape and jeweled rabbit mask. It could almost have been designed with me in mind!

Grumpy Fifi

Daddy has vetoed Neckar Island. I met up with my parents for a spot of lunch and straight away pulled out my beloved brochure (from out of the new Louis Vuitton bag that I bought on Thursday) I did my best to explain to him how much I deserved the outdoor roll top bath with sea view and the floating sushi banquet in the pictures but he was having none of it. 'Too expensive even for him' he said. I am grumpy now. Not even the bobbles on my Temperley dress can cheer me up.

Feeling Hopeful

Today I’m wearing Issa and flicking through travel brochures dreaming of my next holiday whilst munching on a lettuce leaf. I’m not on a diet by the way I just happen to like lettuce. Wherever I go I think I’ll try and fly Singapore Airlines. They offer proper first class treatment, a double bed complete with crisp white sheets sprinkled liberally with rose petals. I won’t want to get off the plane! Unless that is the destination is Neckar Island. Richard Bransons Caribbean hideaway that you can hire for yourself and 28 guests. I’d better start being nice to Daddy right away they both sound highly expensive!
