Next month my 10th collection will be presented. The initial research and inspiration started during Paris Fashion Week, October 2008 on a regular visit to 120 year old Parisian shop Fried Freres.

Their back room is filled from floor to ceiling in old dark wood shelves overflowing with sequins and beads in every colour and shape imaginable. I left an hour later with empty pockets and bags filled with sequins. I immediately started to feed the subconsious with new ideas

A year and half later the concept has turned into reality, and a 10 piece collection to celebrate 10 seasons is in the making.

As with every collection I'm quite nervous and very excited.

I love the way you describe that old Parisian shop…places like that have always fascinated me. I just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed your lovely blog. So many of the images you select have such a wonderful haunting quality to them; your blog is a place of great beauty and inspiration!

Well done, ten collections is a vast accumulation of creativity and work, and the sequined originations of your 10th sound most alluring. Looking forward to seeing it!
