It was already last issue that I got to work with the beautiful and talented Ella Eyre. Not to long ago her exclusive video for HungerTV, directed by Vicky Lawton was released. Here Ella gets real close up and personal with us in 'Love Me Like You'.
This week for Website Wednesday I would like to introduce the illustrator Hattie Stewart. Hattie, an artist that has made an impact with her comic like drawings has already been exhibited around the globe and has worked with designers such as Marc Jacobs and Henry Holland. Her website perfectly reflects her playful and cheeky doodles.
Here is one of my favourite campaigns of the season… I thought I would share Stella McCartney's latest collaboration with Kate Moss. This is the seventh campaign featuring Kate, but the first time they have worked together in 5 years. The film, directed by Mert and Marcus sees Kate posing against a Salvador Dali - esque backdrop of space scenes and rolling seas.
Based in New York City, Douglas Abraham began BESS as a fine jewellery line in 2000. The growing boutique quickly evolved and established itself as an apparel brand along with jewellery and accessories. As social media now plays such a role in the development of ones brand, Doug began to use Instagram and soon found himself lazy with posting. He then approached @bessnyc4 as more of an art project.
As perfectly quoted in the unveiling interview with Dazed Digital, 'Abraham cuts up and reworks iconic fashion campaigns and images, chopping and screwing them with found images that casts a different light on the subject and re-examines contemporary notions of beauty, sexuality and good taste. Horror films, porn, bondage, transmogrification, cyborg technology have all been fodder for his twisted dystopian worldview'

Okay.. SO I have been silent for awhile - but I promise it is for good reason. Since given the title of Womenswear Director of Hunger Magazine, I've been working closely with the Hunger team to make the 7th issue beyond maje. So far this has been such a learning experience and so so rewarding. Soon the magazine goes to print for our fall release and I am itching with excitement for you all to see what we've created. Until then… I will continue to tease with posts on my blog :)
