Whether it’s on the streets or in the style blogs, Gwyneth Tang’s incredible hair and super-chic style make her pretty hard to miss. Needless to say, when I had to choose someone to feature as the ‘Get My Look’ subject for SuperSuper #24, it seemed hard to think of a more natural candidate…

Look 1.

“This is my friend’s skirt - I like it because it makes the colours of this outfit go really well together. I have to wear it with a belt that I found in charity shop, because the skirt is actually too big for me. The belt itself is actually really long, I think it must be for obese people or something - I have to wrap it round twice! The shirt is just from American Apparel. As for my hair, it doesn’t take too long to do, but I have to bleach the roots every month and I’ve done an all-over dye seven times now, so it’s starting to break off!”

Look 2.

“I bought everything in this look from Hong Kong, it’s really cheap there. I only paid 50 cents for the skirt and shirt, but you really have to look for good pieces there. It’s not like in proper vintage shops, where everything has been selected - all the shops are basically full of second-hand rubbish, so you have to really look to find anything good. The belt and shoes were gifts from a friend.”

Look 3:

“It only actually takes me two minutes to do my hair like this. The jacket and skirt are both from H&M - I actually noticed Rihanna wearing a similar jacket in one of her videos recently, but I doubt hers was from H&M! The top was 50 cents from Hong Kong, I stole the stockings from a friend and the shoes are from a charity shop in Belgium.
I must spend 3-4 hours a week rummaging through clothes… I tend to look around East London and in charity shops.”


“The coat is from Brick Lane. I actually bought a similar one in black from Hong Kong. I won’t wear real fur though in London because it rains a lot, and it will probably ruin the jacket - not that I’ve actually tried it, but I’m assuming it would be like that anyway. The shirt is from Hong Kong again, and the necklace was acquired from a Catholic society. And no, I’m not a Catholic…”

The new Tweenage issue by the guys at DIS Magazine is one of the best things I've seen online, or indeed anywhere in a long, long time. It's hard to pick a particular highlight, but the tween Best Trends Forever and Priceless pieces work particularly well.

I've been a huge fan of the site and watched it develop over the last year or so. Am happy to have contributed a few pieces of my own to the site, including 2 fairly recent ones.

Safety Belts

... and Tweets by Cher.

The rest of my pieces are all available to view here.

Have just finished a copywriting assignment for the infamous BOY London clothing label. Next time you see one of those ubiquitous T-Shirts out and about, the chances are I wrote the label for it! (I also wrote their online bio and various other pieces of press material, including the press release for their recent exhibition at CANDY in Tokyo)

Just worked out how to convert PDFs to Jpeg without them looking horrible, so working through uploading some archive images. This was shot way back before Christmas and styled by me.
