I just created my first wedding dress for a very dear old friend of mine Sharmaine. Shar is a unique character with many sides to her personality and so I knew the dress needed to be classical with an alternative edge. She had no idea what the dress looked like until the day before the wedding when I met her in Copenhagen. The wedding took place in Denmark on a beautiful island called Mon. Here's the dress!
      The blushing bride herself, half an hour before 'I Do' in the beautiful house they rented in Mon.
                                    Myself and Shar and my dress, no her dress, no my dress!


I made a few pieces for Lady Ga Ga to wear at this years VMA's. You never know what will be used and the two head pieces I made weren't, but hopefully will show up on her lovely head at some point soon so I cant show them to you yet!. But I wasn't suprised when I saw the amazing work of my friend and contemporary Franc Fernandez' Meat dress - well done Franc!
What Ga Ga did use was a huge black and bottle green net bustle skirt that I made to add a little extra drama to the McQueen dress she wore on the red carpet. I had the dress in the studio and it is absolutely stunning. We miss you Alexander. x


My final show as curator for the Dalston Superstore was a huge success, I am so happy with the standard and diversity of work and the effort the artists put in. The pieces really show the identity of the artists and this subconscious portrayal of them selves is what makes the work so interesting. The opening night was completely packed and turned into a great party. Hopefully the show will travel as every one is so impressed.
Its up until the end of the month so if you haven't seen it the check it out, scroll down my blog for links to the artists personal sites and blogs. Here is a selection of the work and I'll post the rest when I get a chance to take the pictures.
