I attended a special pre-screening of the critically acclaimed film NIGHT MOVES directed by Kelly Reichardt at Chiltern Firehouse. The film revolves around a plan to destroy a dam in Oregon. Eisenberg plays this role brilliantly. Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning, the screening was followed by a discussion on environmental activism chaired by Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
Jesse Eisenberg, Greenpeace activist and leader of the Arctic 30 Frank Hewetson, and founding CEO of ClientEarth and Zen Priest James Thornton, all participated in the lively chat afterwards. It was fantastic meeting Frank Hewetson as I was fortunate enough to board the now infamous Greenpeace ship, Rainbow Warrior, earlier this year.
Fabulous intimate evening, better pictures to come.
OK so first things first, I never ever win raffles! The last prize I won was Red Carpet Green Dress and that transformed my life (VOGUE: Angel Accolades ) so although I never win, it can sometimes turn out well when I am lucky enough to!
A year ago , just before the Oscars I visited, and fell in love with, the incredibly curated Jessica McCormack store. I visited based on a recommendation from Roland Mouret and designed my ‘Love Letter’ rings (a Victorian tradition of spelling out names or messages in gem stones), picture here. At the time I knew that it was understandable why Rihanna, Madonna and Carine Roitfeld all love her. Her work is full blown creativity at its best. But there’s only way to buy Jessica McCormack’s show-stopping jewels, and that’s the old-fashioned way: visit her shop. It is absolutely stunning. There’s a piano that plays itself designed by Based Upon, art by Rick Owens and Louise Bourgeois, sculptures by Tom Price (a chap in a puffa jacket checking his phone sits on a pedestal, like a Michaelangelo) and Dali-esque furniture by the Haas Brothers, who have made pieces for Lagy Gaga and Versace Home. And, of course, cabinets filled with exquisite and unusual jewels.
So to visit ‘The House’ for Jessica’s breathtaking baby shower a year later (she is expecting a boy!), enter the raffle and win…well save to say that when my name as called I was absolutely shocked beyond words. Sweaty palms, shiny forehead, the lot! The raffle benefited The Children’s Trust, which was celebrating 30 years as the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury, providing expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care.
As style fiends rub their hands in glee over this week’s pre-Oscar fashion parade, Suzy Amis Cameron, wife of James Cameron, took the opportunity on Thursday 27th February 2014 to relay an important message about the importance of sustainable clothing on the red carpet.
Super excited to share a sneak peak of our Red Carpet Green Dress 5th Year Anniversary video. It is really great to see celebration and discussion around all the hard work, and for such a great causes, sustainability and MUSE School. Featuring Suzy Amis Cameron, James Cameron, Amber Valletta, Kellan Lutz, Naomie Harris and more.
Fresh design talent hit the catwalk in Shoreditch for the #LCFBA14Runway Show. LCF celebrated the industry’s next generation of innovative (and employable) talent last night as the BA design graduates took to the runway with their final collections.
It was a full house at The Yard in Shoreditch for the #LCFBA14 show. Industry, press and peers turned out to see works by LCF’s latest promising crop of courses ranging from Contour and Jewellery to Print and Textiles. Check out the emerging graduates’ collections:http://bit.ly/1rfxlDs. This takes me back to when I presented the award for BA Collection of the Year.
