Halloween - Circus:Gothic

Last Friday, Circus:Gothic kicked off the Halloween weekend. As this time of year is the one time EVERYONE goes out and about dressed up in some ghoulish nonsense or other I decided to leave it to the amateurs. My decidedly unhalloween look was a hit!!

Louise Gray - I LOVE YOU!

I had nothing to do with London Fashion Week this season, instead rather enjoyed some time off to myself, read a book, did a spot of sewing, and pottered about at the V and A. So I thought tonight I'd sit down and have a butchers at the presentations of some of my fave designers, now the initial fuss has died down. I was particularly interested in the mens shows from Wednesday. "Maybe I'll do a short blog on I fave outfits" I thought...
But then I stumbled onto Louise Gray's womenswear from next summer and it frankly shat on all the others!! LOUISE GRAY - I LOVE YOU!!! Here's my section...





Loving the colours, I'd happily wear all these things - mixing it up over shirts and tapered trousers! HOT!!

Also I am gonna include a couple from Christopher Shannon, cos I'm a fan. I love good shirts, bomber jackets and a tassel!!





Let's Wrestle video

Film artist and director Margarita Louca called me to get involved with a music video for London lo-fi rock trio Let's Wrestle. Based around the central idea of a surreal dream/freak out seen through the eyes of lead singer Wednesday. I loaned my padded Mayan mask and created a couple of new hood masks for the shoot. Great band, great lyrics, fun shoot, fun video. Enjoy!!!!

Amongst the many press articles about the book, I found my splashed acoss The Sunday Times with two snaps from the wonderful book!

Images of Fujimori for Kato Kogei Ceramics.




I fell in love with these cermics a while ago after roaming around the internet looking for images of Memphis influenced homewares and fabrics. I could find very little about these, here's all I have gleaned from sellers and other enthusiasts.....



Fujimori was born in Japan in 1935, graduated college in 1956, where he majored in oil painting and design. Aged just 19 he won the National Art Award, later followed by a string of awards throughout the late 70's and early 80's including the Grand Prix at the Nitten Exhibition (totally major Japanese art organisation) in 1980.


After working in Chicago as a ceramics designer, he returned to Japan in 1963 where he became a freelance designer for companies in Nogoya.


As the Art Director for Kato Kogei Ceramics, a major supplier of fine ceramics to the international market, Fujimori oversaw the design and distribution of his signature line.



So there we have it. I'm keeping an eagle-eye cast over Ebay for these treats!!
