_Alek Wek in The Financial Times!

Well haven't The Financial Times come up trumps! I was so impressed by this shoot in the 'How to Spend It Magazine'. The shoot is by Andrew Yee and I think it captures the true essence of an African woman. The colours, prints, patterns, fabric's are all unique and influence so many of the World's fashion houses. Alek Wek looks authentic and the shoot almost looks to be Portraiture. All perfectly styled by Damian Foxe. I think i'll keep half an eye on their editorials now!

_Zoey Grossman for Oyster

I came across this shoot in the new Oyster. I like how spontaneous they look as if taken with a simple point and shoot camera. The casual compositions remind me of Juergen Teller's work, they both work with very natural locations such as the one seen above. I went onto Zoey Grossman's website to find out more about her and the photo below is one that stood out. I love the pink wall and the helium unicorns, they appear so perfect, much like Jeff Koon's metal sculptural versions from his recent exhibition, did any of you go and see it? x

_Vivienne Westwood Shoe Exhibition: A Personal Collection

There is a very intriguing exhibition on at the Civic in Barnsley, opening on Wednesday 13th May 7pm-9pm and running until July 17th. The Exhibition is 'A Personal Collection' of Vivienne Westwood Shoes, spanning 15 years of a love relationship between the collector and the shoes. There are over 75 pairs!!! So if you are a shoe lover like me, come and feast your eyes on the beauties!! Westwood has been forward thinking in her cloth making, but most definitely in her eccentric shoe design . Her influence on generations of latter designers is evident. From the infamous pirate boot to the elevated white-patent stiletto prostitute...these shoes have their very own character! Don't miss out on the chance to witness this array of shoes, never before have there been so many pairs in one place, apart from in the Westwood archive!!! Sorry in advance if you see me being arrested from trying to nick a pair!!! Bx
