OMG – I BECAME A REAL LIFE FAIRY GODMOTHER! The event “The fairy godmothers of fashion”, hosted by Allied London was to launch The Old Granada studio space, which is based in Manchester. ( The old Coronation street studios don’t you know)  In only 3 hours we took a product by Rosie Dobby, an emerging designer, and created a brand.  Each fairy godmother had a different skill from identity to styling to marketing and PR, not for getting photography by yours truly and helped to mould Rosie’s ideas into a strong brand ready to go. Each of us talked through our process to… View Post

Fed up of Avocado for breakfast? I have an idea.. Walking in the fresh autumn morning, a warm paper bag in my hand. There is something I love and find so humbling about heading out first thing on a Saturday to go and collect a loaf 28hr sour loaf, chocolate croissants and whatever else I cant resist buying for us to try.

I am lucky enough to… View Post
