Yesterday was the opening of GUTS FOR GARTERS in Camden. It was an amazing night, a royal night as the theme for the next 6 weeks is ROYAL WE. The Queen was there as Kate Middleton ( Agent Lynch ) who did an cheeky strip-tease. The shop stocks an eclectic mix of vintage clothing, curiosities, ironic artwork, wallpaper and my jewellery...

Today, it feels so much like Spring. The sun is out as the new Selfridges windows.
My friend, Vanessa Harden, is this amazing Queen of Guerrilla Gardening and she has been commission by Selfridges to do this window. It is an umbrella which shoots sunflower seeds. How amazing is that?

I forgot to mention that she has also a great taste for choosing her models!!! 
It is me, doing Guerrilla Gardening at Westminster!

Go to have a look to her window and check her website HERE



Yesterday, i went to Swarovski for a tea and discover all their new colors and products. For each season they creates this amazing trend book with all new tendances, colors textures, inspirations...
This one is for Spring Summer 2012 and i have to say that next year, it will be all about gold and burgundy.

The V sign

Someone told me one day that the V sign was from the Hundred Years' War. That the french used the cut the 2 arrow-shooting fingers of the english archers. So the English made some V sign to provocate them and to say : Come to get my fingers!!
I find that funny!! As for us ( I am French by the way), that doesn't really mean anything! It doesn't have the same impact than in England!! So don't do it in France, we will probably think it is the sign for Victory! Use just one finger, much more effective!!

I n 1968, Andy Warhol said "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.". Yesterday, I had one second of my 15 minutes. Can't wait for the 14 minutes and 59 seconds left!

When I am not designing for myself, I am designing the silver collection of STEPHEN WEBSTER. Brix from Gok's Clothes Roadshow paid us a visit last month and the show was air yesterday evening!
Was just a second but here is my little face pretending to be interested by what Brix was saying!!


Guts for Garters is a new concept store in Camden, London NW1 founded by Rachel Chudley and Cassie Beadle.They will sell antique and contemporary art, interiors, fashion and costume and stock established designers and artists as well as young, emerging British talent such as me. The boutique has a unique concept where it will be run through three different installations based on a theme that will dictate what style of products will be on sale. The themes will change three times a year and run for periods of around six weeks at a time. Guts for Garters first installation is based on the ‘Royal We’ and will open on the 10th of March.

Come to have a look to my ROYAL WE jewellery!!
