One of my favourite things at the end of an illustration job is seeing my drawings on stuff. When you work almost exclusively with digital files, it’s really fun and exciting to see them applied to real tangible objects, out there in the world. In my 3rd season of working with Abi of The Apartment for LFW, the stuff just keeps getting better. In one year we’ve escalated from water bottles to freaking cars (and tote bags and umbrellas!). A mini fleet of Hyundais that were used to ferry bloggers between shows during London Fashion Week and saved my butt getting home when the trains weren’t running in bad weather.
Problem is, at this rate I’m expecting blimps and double decker buses next season. Yo Abi, you’ve created a monster!

I was totally hyped for Sophia Webster’s presentation, since last season’s bug themed collection was a highlight of my week (am still hoping to come across the recording of Katy B doing live covers of UK garage classics, it was unreal. Imagine this, but for an hour). For AW’14 the girls were hanging around in pastel painted bedroom sets, watching Clueless on TV, chilling in a bubble bath or chatting on blinged-up phones. Add in the walk in shoe closet, the chihuahua in a puffer jacket and yet another sick setlist from Rinse Fm’s Geeneus (early 2000 RnB, interrupted by quotes from Pretty Woman) and I’m literally heart eyes emoji. And we haven’t even got to the shoes dotted all over the place, all the beautiful, crazy shoes. Wish all shows (and indeed shoes) were as much fun as Sophia Webster.
