Next in my little homage to Japan/cherry blossom series: Corrie Nielsen, who was born in Florida, moved to London three years after me (2000), studied at Central Saint Martins, worked for Vivienne Westwood for SIX YEARS (til 2006), won Fashion Fringe at Covent Garden in 2010, and altho hers was only the 2nd show I saw (on Day One) of this recent fashion week, I knew she's stay in my heart and mind as one of the best (altho I still haven't shown you anything by Holly Fulton yet! Been saving up for that).
I was thinking recently, when I was putting together a post in my head about why I love blue, and don't usually love red, and my reason was, you can do a million shades of blue together - going into green, and purple, and baby blue, aqua, navy - but you can't do it with red. Tht there aren't as many shades of red. And soon as I thought that I went, HANG ON: pink is a shade of red. So is purple, and orange.. and when I start thinking that way, I realise I love red. When I think of mixing hot pink with orange - with a bit of camel or khaki or olive or brown - that's when red becomes interesting. I just don't like it with black and grey. But that's just because of my childhood friend Sheila's bedroom, which was all Goth and scared me.
Everything is subjective.
Yesterday the sun came out in all its gloriousness and I had a lovely brunch with Naomi at Borough Market, then the afternoon with the Dot Man in Hyde Park. Today we're back to grey but that's okay: yoga and films. Rambling - sorry - I'll shut up now.
