Charles Guo for Numéro China

When I saw these, I had to post them as I think they're incredible. Stylist Shao Jia has created a really fresh, innovative way of composing an accessories photoshoot that ensures the watches by brands including Chanel, Dior and Rolex are the ultimate centre of attention.

Find the rest of the shoot here.

Last week I attended Graduate Fashion Week where an abundance of talented designers showcased their collections. Here are some from Northbrook College Fashion Design graduates, which make me very proud to attend the same institution.

Lara Dumbleton (The designer I created a photoshoot for. It was great to see the collection complete and it looked so vibrant on the catwalk)

Dominique Kral (who won the Zandra Rhodes Textiles Award)

backstage at Brighton Fashion Week

Yesterday I worked Brighton Fashion Week's Couture Show which was a great experience despite the long hours, as I got an insight into how a fashion show is run. I was assigned to Masato (http://masatostudio.blogspot.com) as his dresser/stylist and helped to organise the shoes, running order and fittings. I also worked behind the scenes during the show, assisting models in quick changes which was manic but so satisfying once the show was over. I worked the Ready-to-Wear show today too, which had a more relaxed atmosphere than yesterday, and displayed amazing collections - my favourite was menswear created by Ingo Shayenge.

A few of my favourite designers from the couture show (pictures taken from www.brightonfashionweek.co.uk):
