State of Craft sneaky preview........

So it began last Christmas when two little puddings turned up at the Tatty Devine Christmas Party. The lovely Victoria Woodcock spied us (with her mince pies) and asked if the cape would like to feature in a new publication she was working on, State of Craft. The pattern I created for the pudding cape has now made its way into the soopa doopa crafty book, soon to be released next month. So this is just a little teaser for now......

Here's what the little puddings got up to at the Christmas party......better start planning this years Christmas party costume. woahwoahwoahwoah

Puuuuuuuggghhhhh. NO Pugh

Noooo it's not another post about a guy who makes perfume out of shit. It's Gareth Pugh stupid. AND Ruth Hogben sneaks in at the end which doubles the watchability ten fold (I heard the Americans using this term and wanted to join in). It's deffers worth black and white-tastic clean lines watch. I imagine Ruth Hogben's kitchen is really tidy.

Plus there's been far too much colour and weddings involved in a lot of my latest blog posts....don't worry, Winter is encroaching and brights and chiffon are leaving the building. You can read about Diane Pernet and NIck Knight HERE too.

matryoshka preview

Here's a little peak at the Matryoshka film. It was filmed a while back now but I want to re-edit it so here's just a snippet, I like the editing that has been on this piece mostly so I thought it was about time I let everyone who worked on the project get a quick look! Thanks again to everyone involved, will put credits up when film is finished.

The idea came from a lecture by Caryn Franklin on the All Walks Beyond the Catwalk project ealier this year. I'd been wanting to work with plus sizes for a while now and this was the perfect opportunity. Even though All Walks works with changing a number of aspects within the modelling world (race, age, size), I wanted to concentrate on the sizing aspect.

I decided to use Russian dolls as a basis as there's the obvious different size factor involved with them and after going through research it transpired the plus size buyer would rather shop in the same shops as the average high street and designer sizes shop, rather than having plus size stores or designated areas within a store.

After researching at LFW's trade show I found that barely any of the designers there catered for over a size 14 so it seemed like anyone who was over a size 14 didn't exist. Which is the idea behind the film, showing models of different sizes crash landed from a planet where different sizes actually exist. Who'd have thought it! I was shocked with the findings at LFW, that none of the up and coming designers were even attempting to design for a diverse amount of women's bodies but just that off the naughties traditional long thin silhouette. I believe Caryn said that when Dove included a range of sizes and ages within their campaigns that their profits rose by 300%!! So someone's really missing a trick.

the wedding dress

After a couple of toiles and one ridink late night, with 2 hours sleep, the wedding dress was finally ready! This is what I have been spending my spare time on over the last month, social life revival ahoy! I swiped some pics off facebook to show the dress....Laura looked so beautiful!

Cilla and Mo.

A little bit of essay turned into a whole lotta Highbury.

Gahahahahaaa, this actually cracks me up, my first bash at editing film. I especially love the 'Revenge' style gay pump music, I must be subconsciously missing living in Brighton (R.I.P mid noughties).


I still haven't learnt to say NO so here's another piece of styling work. My friend asked me to put a shoot together for a new magazine to be a sister mag to SketchBook. The concept behind it was a pair of bored teenagers hanging round town dressing up in their big sisters clothes to amuse themselves. That's it really. Genius I know but it does the job.

I'll put full credits up when I post the finals. OoOOhhhhh vintage Silas ( I promise I will buy you back from the Japanese in years to come and heal you back to full health).

When you've spent 45 minutes trying to get your piece of shit internet to work so you can transfer some money online so you can actually draw out a tenner to get the bus to Fabric Land and Jeremy Kyle's daily dose of reprobates can't even make you feel better about your life....there's nothing better than hearing about a man who makes perfume out of shit. And he's got nice hair. You can read about poop and perfume here -

I'm not sure if I'm meant to put this up but when you love butts and racoons as much I do how could I resist

Finished article - Christmas pudding cream cape!

Here are the finished capes, one for me and one for Jo.....and here's us modelling them topped off with a sprig of polystyrene holly at the Tatty Devine Christmas party. Luffley. There was a nice Christmas tree in the background of Jo's pic but my disposable camera skills have obviously wained since the age of the digi cam. Bahh
