Recently Bed Head Street Squad members Sami Knight, Lucy Wearing and myself worked on an editorial with one of my best friends and favourite model Elin Amos, with styling from Sophie Gaten…
Here are some sneak peeks from the shoot!

THE LAUNCH OF BLOC SALON – AND MY EXHIBITION!
A while ago, me and the lovely Carianne Moore held an exhibition to launch the photographs from our recent collaboration… The images on display where shot by me, the subject; fellow TIGI ambassador Mimi Wade with Makeup from yet another Street Squadder Lucy Wearing, and hair by Louis Byrne.
The private view was a huge success, thanks to everyone who came down – we had such a brilliant night. Thank you so much to the
theprintspace for providing the prints and to BLOC for hosting the exhibition. ICN were on hand to provide the delicious japanese food and we had Miguel Alvarez taking wonderful pictures. The lovely Josh Quinton & Alpha Deluxe supplied the night with a disco soundtrack – perfect evening. The kind of exhibition I love to go to.
To kick off our blogging for Bed Head… we thought we would tell you a little about our night out for one of our very favourite publications Dazed & Confused…
Somerset house really was the most spectacular setting for the celebration of 20 years of Dazed and Confused magazine. Upon arrival we were offered scrumptious ‘Swedish kiss’ cocktails and or champagne- we opted for a healthy combination of the two- and gorged ourselves on mini steak frittes whilst overlooking the beautiful view of the pier from the balcony.
The exhibition itself ‘ Making It Up As We Go Along’ curated by editor-in-chief Jefferson Hack and former Dazed photographic editor Emma Reeves was a marvellous retrospective showcasing some of Dazed’s most exciting editorials, covers, art works and installations. The exhibition stretched over five rooms and a corridor and we both thought it was nice to be able to wander through and admire.
We then headed to the after party at W hotel in Soho where we danced til the wee hours to Pam Hogg spinning the decks. Alas we never got as far as venturing to the second floor for karaoke, our infamous Sonny and Cher duet will have to wait for another very special occasion… Until next time folks!
