Moving to Another Hill!

It’s been a little quiet from me over the last week or so. Not only am I about to launch a business I’m now in the middle of moving house. There just never seems to be a dull moment in my life lately. With 6 days to pack, move and find a new home with…

From Notting Hill to Portobello Road

After a quick trip to the seamstress for sample fittings for work this morning we decided to take a walk to Notting Hill. We popped into the newish Jamie Oliver Recipease shop. It’s quite amazing, it’s such an interactive store with cooking classes going on in a huge island kitchen in the middle of the…

For the Love of Fabric

One of the most exciting and interesting parts of my role as a designer is fabric. It still amazes me how fabric choice can transform a garment and bring it to life. I also love that the same garment can have a completely new identity by just recreating it in a different fabric whether it…

Some of our Easter

Easter has been a much needed break for me and my family but especially me. Lately, I’ve been more than exhausted. Quality time at home celebrating Easter has put a smile back on my face. Apart from a trip to church on Sunday morning we didn’t leave home this holiday, long mornings in pyjamas and…

Happy Times on a Cold Day

‘Should we stay in, should we go out’ were the words playing in my mind this morning. We both woke up late, it looked so cold and grey outside. I really wanted to stay at home in the warm. Gabriella had another agenda…she whined and whined this usually translates to ‘Mummy, I want to go…

A Few Days in Lourdes, France

Desperate for a break and to find a little clarity it was perfect timing when one of my dear friends asked me if would like to accompany her on a short trip to Lourdes in France. Naturally I was a bit hesitant at leaving Gabriella for the first time but after thinking about it she…

Whilst I’ve Been Working

The pressures on! Life is crazy hectic at the moment. With the imminent launch of my childrenswear brand looming and happening in the next few months I barely have time to spend with my daughter. I hate it because I feel so guilty. All I want to do is sit and play with her or…

Gabriella’s Style: 3 Cardigan Favourites

Cardigans are the handiest, tran-seasonal piece of clothing in a child’s wardrobe. I always feel that I Gabriella can never have too many, they definitely get more wear than any of her other garments, maybe this is because a cardigan can be thrown over any outfit. We’ve seen a few nice sunny days lately, it’s…

Inducing the Creativity

On this Monday morning I needed a little help…It’s normal, every designer or creative has to deal with creative block from time to time. How I deal with this depends. Sometimes its short lived and can be solved by a simple walk through the park to clear my head or sometimes I need to do…
