Happy reading

Just a little note to say that some of the letters from the vinyl biography that accompanies the Star Gaze Exhibition are missing.  I was considering filling them in but the Topshop Crew and I felt it was far more intriguing and entertaining to leave the gaps.  'It maybe co d' also seemed to fit well with the sea theme... 

Star Gaze Exhibition - Setting Up

This Sunday under the cover of darkness I set up my Star Gaze exhibition in Topshop Oxford Circus.  I had the extraordinary experience of being in this huge Topshop store 'after hours'. Thank you to all the Topshop staff that helped me find cleaning products and ladders, as well as feeding me words of encouragement during the 4 hour set up.  The night security guard had this to say about the piece:  "It is beautiful.  It is also engaging."  Thank you...  The exhibition is on the right hand side of the lower ground floor (near the changing rooms and Style Advisor), Topshop Oxford Circus until 28th December 2008.

Hurray!  My local Topshop in Brighton on Western Road now has my Star Gaze Collection.

Topshop loves a bit of cardboard!  So I've made my local Brighton store a cardboard reindeer and owl for there window.  It will be in store later today.  It's to celebrate the launch of my collection Star Gaze.  It's only limited edition and selling out dead quick in London, so get it while you can. More photos of Reindeer and Owl in situ soon...

Step Back in Time

I'm usually rubbish at uploading images and news on the same day. So let's really confuse things and step back in time. This photo was taken around a year ago when we were in Tokyo. I was doing a talk about my work.
