Designs for Florence

This lucky designer has won a competition to design one of Florence Welch's stage outfits for her new tour. Not going to lie, her designs are good. I'm so jealous, but I found out about this competition too late to enter a design. Next time eyy...

'Rabbit Hearted Girl'

These images from the video shoot of Florence and the Machine's Rabbit Heart literally make my life. If the inside of my head was put into picture form, then it would look something like this. I have so much respect and admiration for this woman, for her design and style choices aswell as for her incredible music.

Birmingham Royal Ballet- Creating Cinderella

It just so happens that BRB's winter production is going to be Cinderella, much to my excitement. I have my ticket booked and have been following the creation of the ballet on the BRB Cinderella blog they have set up. The designer for the production is John Macfarlane, who trained at the Glasgow school of fine art and who is responsible for the design of many iconic ballets, including The Nutcracker. He has designed both the costume and set for the production, as well as painting the four cycloramas used in the piece. His designs look truly beautiful and I cannot wait to see them in practice and in the setting of the production on its opening night.

when the sun goes down, the kids wake up

Meet 'Cobra Snake', aka Mark. The party photographer who goes to all the right places with all the right people documenting the events in picture form. Now a famous and highly sought after photographer, he started by documenting the wild antics of his days at community collage, and it eventually developed into a way of life. Regularly occuring faces include the likes of Cory Kennedy, Peaches and Pixi Geldof, Alice Dellal and Daisy Lowe. Basically most of NYC and Londons' 'it crowd'.
Even though this form of photography does not take a lot of skill in the traditional sense, it is something that everyone can do. Of course it does help if the subjects of your photos are excessively cool within themselves, and the locations exclusive.
