I have a lot of love for hair jewellery, you can’t not look good in a Tikka! And whats more its nearly summer so this will help in the crusade of trying to stay chic while melting.
I wear mine a lot and yes they are not for the faint hearted but they’re definitely a fabulous statement.
Here’s some Tikkaspiration to get you going.

Just finished the tailoring unit of my course so I wanted to share some pictures of my pant suit from my portfolio. TAH DAH!
This is designer and DJ Daphne Mohajer-Va-Pesaran, who I only recently discovered in VICE but I think shes amazing already. Her work is heavily based on print inspired by her Iranian heritage and there’s lots of heavy beading, crazy millinery and drapery involved. These pictures of her were taken at her house in Japan wearing her own designs and the rest are features of her work taken from various magazine’s that i found on her website http://deface.jp and blog http://ocular-buffet.blogspot.jp/. I love coming across amazing people like this, it’s nice to see work that’s different especially with print this beautiful.

I love the styling of this shoot, it’s very reminiscent of Hedi Slimane’s first Saint Laurent Collection and the lighting is beautiful.
I’ve always loved Somerset house, as everyone with an interest in fashion does, but it’s new exhibitions are a real spectacle of talent and inspiration. And so it’s unsurprising that the house of Valentino chose it for their latest exhibition ‘Master of Couture’ , a personal experience into the life and work of Valentino Garavani, from his couture techniques to hand written messages from friends. It boasts an amazing cast of people including rare photos of Jackie Onassis, hand written letters from Anna Wintour and signed pictures of Elizabeth Taylor. As well it lifts the lid on the craftsmanship behind his collections with details on techniques and step by step videos showing the hand rendered processes. One of my favorite touches was the little name tags of Valentino’s beautiful Lady friends on the catwalk chairs, it was testament to the close relationship he shares with them through his clothes that they have spent so many important moments of their lives in. Unfortunately your not aloud to take photographs! But that’s even more of a reason to go? And while your there check out the FREE Tim Walker exhib which is equally awe-inspiring.
I decided to base my next uni project on Russia and I came across this beautiful silent film the other day that I really wanted to share. Set in the post-war Soviet Union, the best scenes are the daydreams of Los, an inventor desperate to reach Mars and his fantasies of life on another planet which slowly turn in to a strange reality.
