Isabel Marant for H&M

November 1, 2013

When tie dye comes to mind I tend to recall 90′s psychedelic flourescent monstrosities and I find myself shuddering thinking of my childhood faux-pas flashbacks. (Ew.) I truly thought I was so over tie die….that is, until I saw Parisian fashion designer Isabel Marant’s limited edition collection for H&M. Her collection was a game changer for me and her cool tribal monochrome pieces set my heart a-flutter!!! She has done the impossible – her interpretation made tie dye (dare I say it) cool again, and I found myself wondering ..”SHOULD I? Could I?!!” I had the pleasure of attending H&M’s […]


Fashion Forward Illustrations

October 22, 2013

Only in Dubai can you wear electric blue pleated trousers to a casual trip to the mall and feel somewhat underdressed. It’s what I love about the city. Others may whine that it’s superficial, flamboyant and OTT, but as a small town girl from Scotland who loved to play dress up and never quite fit in, I say over here La vie en Rose! I love jumping into all the events this city has to offer with a hungry sense of fervour and gusto. My absolute favorite event being Fashion Forward. If you haven’t heard of Fashion Forward, you must […]


Harper’s Bazaar World of Fashion

October 16, 2013

For some, October conjures up memories of crisp cold air, crunchy sepia leaves and trick or treating on Halloween. Well that’s all very cute, darling, but here in Dubai, we celebrate October with launch parties, hitting the beach and of course fashion, fashion and fashion!!! As we bid an eager adieu to the slow, sleepy and sticky days of the summer, a plethora of popular outdoor venues re-open for the season. As the evenings get cooler and more pleasant, the Dubai social scene is once again in full swing with a myriad of events, particularly for fashion. I always look […]


Gianvito Rossi Event

October 11, 2013

They say a woman can conquer the world – provided she’s wearing the right shoes! I, (along with most women I suspect) am guilty of being somewhat of a high-heel hoarder. You know The Little Mermaid and her 20 thingamambobs? Yeah … I can relate! Anyhoo …so when I found out that famous Italian shoe designer Gianvito Rossi was coming to Dubai as part of the Harper’s Bazaar Fashion Week line up, I was just a tad ecstatic!! Even more so when I was asked to illustrate live at the in-store after party event at Harvey Nichols Dubai. To start […]


Live Illustration for THRIVE at Music Room

October 7, 2013

Last week, the very slick n’ sauve Ethan Auguste asked me if I’d like to illustrate live for the season re-launch of Thrive. I have to say, I jumped at the chance to be part of it! For those of you that are unfamiliar with Thrive, it is a series of industry nights managed by Ethan Enterprises. It’s specifically for us bright young things to sparkle in all fields of fashion, art, music and entertainment. A perfect setting to network in a chilled out, youthful and bohemian ambience. As much as I love events, I’ll admit that sometimes the art/gallery […]
