    Red Carpet Green Dress Pre-Oscar Event at Chateau Marmont, Los Angeles February 2015

    Red Carpet Green Dress celebrated the sixth consecutive year of the sustainable design campaign with a gala at the Chateau Marmont’s legendary Penthouse 64. The event also signalled the launch of the exclusive capsule collection ‘No Red Carpet Needed’, a collaboration with uber-cool brand Reformation. On the night six timeless and ready to wear wear versions of previous Red Carpet Green Dress Oscar gowns were revealed. The collection, which encompassed Reformation’s celebration of the feminine figure with effortlessly cool and chic silhouettes, saw a percentage of sales donated toward MUSE School CA.

    Alexander McQueen Play

    On Thursday night I finally got the chance to watchMcQueen the play in London with Shingai (you can follow her here and here) – it was a fantastic night, well worth watching. Award-winning actor brilliant Stephen Wight took on the title role of Lee McQueen and an equally yoked Dianna Agron played Dahlia in James Phillips’s play McQUEEN directed by John Caird running at St. James Theatre from 12 May to 27 June – the play also starred Tracy-Ann Oberman as Isabella Blow.

     

     

    McQUEEN is a journey into the visionary imagination and dark dream world of Alexander McQueen, fashion’s greatest contemporary artist.  Set on a single London night the production took us nto the phantasmagoric mind of the legendary scottish designer as we journeyed with McQueen and his quirky companion and alter-ego for the night, Dahlia, to confront his demons and air his innermost thoughts. Poetic and haunting the writing should leave all creative souls inspired as the play deals with the darker parts of Lee’s life including  recurring themes of depression and suicide.

    Alexander McQueen’s significant relationship with  early investor Isabella Blow is explored as was the brilliant designers’ obsession with his craft and perfectionism – it should be noted that the recreation of the iconic Alexander McQueen gold feathered coat tailored from lacquered gold feathers was extremely impressive. After the play we caught up with the stunning and talented Sophie Apollonia, one of the ensemble dancers. If you are in London and loved anything about the man himself, go see the play. As the exhibition is currently on in London too at the V&A this is the perfect accompaniment.

    Creative Futures

    Creative Futures is an annual meeting place for CMOs, creative heads and innovators in consumer facing businesses across style-led industries. Powered by WGSN, the World’s Global Style Network, the 2 day programme provides inspiration, insight and interaction. Great gathering and my highlights included meeting one of my business role models Melisa Golde, CMO of Calvin Klein and the genius behind @justinbieber for @calvinklein. She is such an inspiration and I had a great chat with her about being a woman in business. Can’t wait to meet her in #NYC and continue the conversation. Also fascinating to listen to Jefferson Hack discuss the creation of the digital magazine with Liam Casey, Silicon Valley’s go-to-guy for hardware. #creativefutures#womenforwomen #calvinklein #yesshecan
