WOLFGANG - music video with Sarah Magnay


Wolf Gang | MySpace Video

A few weeks ago I assisted costume designer Sarah Magnay on a music video for artist Wolfgang.
The song is called "The king and all his men". The video was shot at Shepperton Studios, and was directed by Daniel Brereton. 
I helped Sarah source props, make bits of costumes and dress the actors on the day of the shoot. As you can see, the theme was monochrome. We dressed all the actors, except Wolfgang, whose sister is his stylist. He had an awesome stripey suit jacket on, made stripey using very simple techniques.

Another Bloomin' Monday!

Except it's Friday... but I found a photo of the letters that I helped Jiggery Pokery to make.

A sneaky peak

These are (hopefully) intriguing tasters, giving you a sneaky peak into a music video that I assisted costume designer Sarah Magnay with last week. I'm not allowed to give anything away until the video is ready so this is it for now, but I can say it was a busy few days that lead to some exciting and monochromatic delights. Stay tuned........

* Fred Butler brooch *

Fred Butler invited me once again to assist her during London Fashion Week in September, at Somerset House. Fred's stand looked fantastic, the location and general feel of the New Gen area was exciting and inviting for people to visit. Fred's collection for Spring/Summer 2010 is beautifully handcrafted, as always, and features a wide spectrum of colour and texture. I was lucky enough to be able to wear one of Fred's brooches, which can be worn on the body or in the hair or anywhere! 
More highlights from Fashion Week include going to David David's presentation and party in Soho, where a guerilla fashion show took place featuring designs by Nova Dando. The dancers suddenly appeared on the roof terrace, and jumped around to some loud tunes, all sporting garments by Nova (one is pictured with Holly Giselle). Amazing! 
And finally, I was very lucky and was able to go to Peter Jensen's presentation where models wearing Jensen's designs walked through the room like dolls, and posed so effortlessly for photographs. My favourite Jensen design had to be the watermelon bag! YUM.
