22 November 2010: FAULT MAGAZINE

Shoot by photographer Imperia Staffieri for Fault.

I have to thank Crystal Deroche for this one, a freelance fashion stylist with an eye for unusual artists around the UK. Followng LFW she dropped me a line to ask if I could loan her a couple of dresses for a magazine shoot. Krakatau, one of my new Pyromania dresses, was her choice for a project she had in mind for two fashion magazines...Fault and another one. Here is the result for the current issue of Fault Pleased? You can say that again ))

20 November 2010: INSPIRATION

It just shows that going out for a day makes a difference...especially here in the Lakes. I'm still busy like crazy with new 'handmade-to-measure' designs to work on and my accounts to finish but by the end of the week I really had to escape and go out for a day.

We headed over to Buttermere - the fresh air was just what I needed ...new ideas, new dresses, new collection....everything all over the place... so many ideas now buzzing round my head. Everything was inspirational from the ever changing weather to the lakes and waterfalls, and the late autumn shades to the Herdwick rams with their huge curved horns roaring and fighting all over the valley ... but what beautiful faces!


This summer I had some challenging projects including a Victorian side saddle wedding dress, a unique designer wedding dress and of course a complete new collection for London Fashion Week ...quite a bit you may say. No wonder I hardly saw the light of day.

In no time it will be the wedding season again and I am already considering exhibiting at a couple of shows. The Lake District is a popular setting for weddings so this is a market I cannot ignore, although many of the wedding dresses I have designed and created have been ... how should I put it? ,,, different! And I don't only mean colours other than white! That is not to say that I don't take commissions for more traditional bridalwear.

The timing of the news that Prince William and Kate Middleton are to tie the knot couldn’t be better. Somebody in one of the papers said that a Royal wedding will cheer people up at a time of gloom and depression. It therefore seems appropriate to reveal to you one of my more unusual creations from this summer ... Lynn, the bride in question, will be ever so pleased!

This unique wedding gown is a tight fitted fishtail dress inspired by a Zac Posen design worn by Kristin Davis in the famous ‘Sex and the City’ SJP to Mr Big wedding. Lynn approached me having fallen in love with the original. Yes it was a hell of a challenge...but as I’m very much against copycats I only used the dress as inspiration and designed my own version. It took us endless fittings and changes to have it all done right but it was such a complicated dress I was afraid I will never be able to finish it in time. I lost count of the number of hours I spent on the dress but it was certainly well into three figures! A lot of work but the final result was well worth the effort ... the dress fitted perfectly and looked fab on the bride ... I can't wait to see the wedding pics!

Carrie finally walks aisle.


Yes another charity. You know what? As much as I like my job, I mean don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my business despite all it's ups and downs, and even more downs, I find doing something for charity both fulfilling and heart-warming.

I offered my services as a fashion designer for a day to Lucy at the Brathay Trust for their Christmas EBay auction. I know it may sound strange but I thought it would be far more exciting than just donating something like a dress - it's far more personal.

Like some of the other charities I have been helping recently, the Brathay Trust, focusses on providing support for youngsters and teenagers. They work with some of the more vulnerable and disadvantaged kids, often those that have lost their way, and help to restore their confidence and develop their skills and motivation for the future. Brathay has the added advantage of being based here in the Lake District. Their accommodation and grounds at the north end of the lake include lakeshore, fell, river and woodland so the kids really get to feel the countryside ... how can they fail to benefit from such an inspirational environment?

So a full day with me...my Goodness, a FULL day with me!!!! I’m scared stiff. I've never done this before and I’m rubbish at trying to explain the technical bits...but I am creative, I know my subject inside out and I'm determined to give it a go. I'm offering three full day packages to choose from subject to the competency and experience of the highest bidder. These will include recycling an old garment into something refreshing and fashionable, being creative by going beyond standard patterns, and the basic skills for making a one-off couture garment. It would help if the winner can sew or competently use a sewing machine - then the day will be hands on creating something of their own. However, don't despair if you are a novice and would still like to bid - the day can still be personalised and used to demonstrate my fashion skills. There will be plenty of time for a full briefing before the day which will take place at Brathay Hall when it is mutually convenient for both parties. Full details will be posted on EBay and on the Brathay Trust site from Monday (15 November) for 10 days. So get bidding for a Christmas pressie with a difference!! Check out
www.brathay.org.uk for links to the auction and for regular updates.

In addition to 'a workshop with an avant garde Fashion Designer' you can bid for dozens and dozens of fantastic one-off offers from a day with the head gardener at Levens Hall, to one of Sara Gadd's hats, a training session with Carlisle United, a VIP World of Beatrix Potter pass, a Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway footplate experience, a weekend dry-stone walling course and even a 2-day pass for Honister. Check the Brathay Trust website for more details but hurry up - the first round finishes next week!


After a mad month with yet more projects, bookings, shows and new dresses to finish, finally I could relax for the first time ... even if it was only for a weekend. I know you might say that my choice of relaxation was perhaps a bit mad, but compared with the hectic madness behind a fashion event it was like a walk in the park ... !

We actually made some very good friends at Honister after the burning dress stunt and I realised that there are still plenty of other people out there that have a mind capable of 'thinking outside of a box'. Perhaps I just attract them! Have a look at this crazy stunt to start with - the highest luxury bath in the world: http://www.honister-slate-mine.co.uk

Brilliant, absolutely barmy - barking mad just like me! To top things up, Mark who runs the operation there, pops down to the shop at the foot of the pass to buy his morning papers in a ...helicopter! Fantastic ... just watch this space as I will come back with something else up my sleeve. I absolutely love these guys ...

The reason for my return visit was to experience the Honister vintage car rally - a trial of endurance with valuable old crocks put through their paces on the old miners' road, an excruciating, 1 in 3 gradient track which leads up to the slate quarries on Fleetwith Pike. You will be forgiven for thinking me completely mad when I tell you that I was also warned that it is traditional for the event to be blessed with torrential rain and wind. Well it is November! However, as you can see from our pictures we fared rather well. The day started with sunshine and a mirror-like Derwentwater to captivate us. There was a brief shower at one stage but all in all we were very lucky.

The cars were really incredible - somebody told me how much some of the old Bentleys and Bugattis were worth but I'm afraid the figures quoted were beyond my comprehension. All I can say is that some people have more money than sense - especially when you see what they are putting these valuable vehicles through - covered in mud and dust, skidding and skating on loose stone, and swerving round hairpin bends between crags and a sheer drop to the valley below! Mad! Completely mad! But what fun! Anyway, take a look at the pictures and judge for yourself, and when you have a second click onto
honister.com and check out their video clip of the Bugatti.

Above: Derwentwater with Skiddaw, from near Lodore; Left: a 1923 Bugatti Brescia - probably worth it's weight in gold!; Below: an American sedan which couldn't have been more out of place on a bleak Cumbrian mountainside ... where was Al Capone or the Great Gatsby?

There is, of course, far more to Honister than vintage cars and weather. The famous green slate has been mined and quarried here for centuries. It was used as a building material and, of course, was very valuable for roof tiles. The mines closed in the 1970s but were subsequently 'rescued' from dereliction and reopened and are now owned and run by a local man, Mark Weir, and his family. This is exactly the sort of responsible, local project I am always rabbiting on about on these pages.

Honister supports the community and environment by employing local people in the mines and the workshops and by providing an excellent, sustainable tourism project. Every penny spent at Honister goes back into supporting the local community and providing a real future for young people. There are some fantastic things to see and do - take a tour of the mines or if you are truly adventurous and have a head for heights, the 'Via Ferrata'. This is an extreme mountainside trail where you are linked up to a secure cable, which was used by miners long ago - see the website. The cafe and gift shop are also worth a visit - why not fill your boot with slate for just £ 20? And for the ladies, perhaps the best appointed loos in the whole of the Lake District - just follow the railway lines in through the door!

A few photos from the vintage car trials on the miners' track up to Fleetwith Pike - note the honister.com workshops, and visitors centre on the pass below.

After another sleepless night getting everything ready, and an interview with Liz Rhodes on Radio Cumbria, it was off to Newcastle for the latest show. Quarter of an hour later we were headed back home again. cursing and swearing because we had left the music hehind! And on top of that there were floods everywhere, and the rain was relentless!

Finally, three hours later we arrived safe and dry at the BBC studios in Newcastle. I was ready for a large, strong coffee. When you are interviewed about so much in such a short period of time you have to think quickly and to be focussed on the subject. I must be the nightmare interviewee, always derailing, going off on a tangent and talking until the cows come home - it's just nerves really! I’m trying, I’m trying... so a big thanks to producer Sophie from BBC Newcastle and to Liz Rhodes from BBC Cumbria for being so lovely and patient with me, and my blurry answers.

After the interview it was a quick hop over the central motorway to ‘As you Like It’ in Jesmond. My brain was already tired and I was fed up with dresses, rails and charts by then, but it was all for a good cause...so there could be no moaning! The setting was nice and really quite atmospheric, though I was a bit worried about the catwalk. Then again I’m always worried about the catwalk.

The models were professional and wonderful,. They helped me with fittings, accessories and rota - just as well as there was nobody else. Believe me, it's no fun trying to change and fit couture outfits - especially for a busy runway schedule. Fortunately we'd worked together last year so we were familiar with each other and they understood my rather demanding needs. My biggest worry was whether I would have enough dresses for the girls from the Teenage Cancer Unit: Carly, Laura and Catherine ... everybody has a different concept of dress size so there always have to be contingencies. With couture there is no second or third sample in different sizes. They either fit or they don't, and it was nearly the latter!

The makeup was spot-on - kindly provided by Vicky Johnston and a few make-up artists from college. I even let one of them loose on me!

A phoenix rising from the ashes - detail from 'Pyromania', the fire dress.

Overall the event was OK ... though, as always I didn't get to see it because I was so busy backstage all evening. I didn't even get to meet Danny Simpson and Leon Best, though I did speak to a couple of the Falcons players. So, a big sooory to everybody I missed ... I was dragged out onto stage at the end but after that it was straight back to clearing up!

There were a few hiccups, which could be put down to lack of rehearsal ... I heard a wonderful adage about the importance of planning, when I was in the office at Movida during LFW - the 7 P's ... "Proper Prior Preparation Prevents P...:" - look it up for yourself on Google! As soon as somebody says, 'don't worry, it will be fine," alarm bells start to ring. It was certainly true this time ... the compere was back on stage before 'Pyromania' had run through and models were left off the catwalk ... lack of communication? Delay in getting models ready and back up the stairs onto the runway again? Who knows. Thankfully they made it back on stage later but the result was chaotic and my new 'Pyromania' Fire Dress, my 'pièce de résistance' for thi s particular show, since it was inspired by and dedicated to the cause, was lost amidst 'Stolen Dreams'. C'ést la vie! Oh well, they still looked fab on the girls!

Plenty of people turned out to support the event but the auction was a littledisappointing. Somebody certainly got a bargain with an NUFC shirt signed by the squad that thrashed Sunderland 5-1 last weekend! However anything is better then nothing and the £1400.00 raised (after expenses) will still be very, very welcome. And, the girls from the RVI had a fantastic time which was perhaps all that really mattered. They were brilliant on the catwalk, where they were accompanied by the lads from Newcastle Falcons ... no wonder they were happy, who wouldn't be? ))

So a big THANKYOU TO ALL OF YOU INVOLVED - from the Newcastle United and Newcastle Falcons players to Leah, the organiser, Vicky, Lesley, and of course to the models and to Carly, Laura and Catherine for being so brave.

Images from the event will be posted here in due course so watch this space!


Out of all the shows I've participated in, this latest one is very close to my heart...there are millions of people out there who are in real need of help so, if I can help just a fraction I will be happy. As they say charity starts at home.

We set out early in the morning for Honister Slate Mine with our fingers crossed - the BBC had been forecasting cloud, then they changed it to rain, and finally to heavy rain. Hardly conducive to burning a dress in the Lake District fells! And, just in case you you haven’t been to the Honister Pass well, I can tell you, you can get the lot there. And they often do - the top of Borrowdale is one of the wettest places in the country. This is where the rain clouds got stuck last year resulting in the Cockermouth floods. Fell walkers usually start out from Honister to walk up on Great Gable or Dale Head. But be aware, places like this can give you the best or the worst time in your life. I have to say that the landscape around the pass always reminds me of Scotland - rough, wild, unattainable and magic. Just the place to sacrifice one of my favourite dresses!

A few days earlier we got in touch with Barry, the marketing manager at the slate mines (
Honister.com) and asked if we could organise a stunt at their site and what he thought about our idea. I had the confidence, considering the location that he would say yes...and he did. Fantastic, the only problem ...the unreliable good old weather.

The Lake District at it's best -

The journey from Newby Bridge to Honister was unbelievable, the weather was magnificent (BBC weather wrong again - whatever happened to the cats and dogs?). By the time we reached Thirlmere the sky was clear blue, the views were breathtaking, and the Autumn colours were quite surreal. We couldn’t believe our luck, well for the moment...and by the time we reached Derwentwater we were drooling for photos. See for yourself if you think I’m having you on )). We passed painting after painting; it felt like a walk through the National Gallery ...romantic, dramatic and mesmerising.

Thankfully we were ahead of schedule so when the temptation became too much we could afford the time for a stroll along the lake shore. We admired the views to Catbells bathed in the early morning light, the mist dispersing from the lake, and the sunrays streaming over Lodore and through the infamous 'Jaws of Borrowdale' that supposedly terrified the early poets as well as the first travellers. If you fancy an interesting read, set in these valleys, pick up a copy of Melvyn Bragg's 'Mary of Buttermere' - it's a story of deception and romance - who says reality can't be stranger than fiction?

Was I anxious about setting a dress on fire? My God I was. My hands were shaking, I was shaking and yes terrified. Considering we actually experienced fire a year ago in our house in the middle of the night, you would think that I would say NO...but my experience is nothing compared with the kids I was doing this for, and what they’re going through. Nothing was going to stop me. Or, to put it into perspective at this time of the year when you are being pestered by children who can talk of nothing other than what they want for Christmas, just think what it must be like as a child not knowing for sure whether you willl pull through to see Christmas Day

It took us over an hour to set it up. I had my goggles, my sexy boiler suit (!) and even my bright red fire extinguisher. We poitioned the dress on a basketwork mannequin and placed it on the edge of a precipice, rather like a 'Wickerman'. Marti turned up from ITV Border to interview me and film the proceedings for Lookaround, while Brian Sherwen, a well-known local photographer joined us with his grand-daughter, Lauren, to take pictures for Honister.com.

The only hitch was the wind, which nearly blew the dress over ithe precipice, and made igniting the dress very tricky, despite the 'blue touchpaper' I had prepared earlier! Then my gas burner ran out of gas and I couldn't replace the cartridge. Luckily the boys at Honister were supervising closely so they came to my rescue with a little magic formula.

The dress burst into flames and I attacked the fire as I had been trained, with the extinguisher, only for the CO2 to run out before it was under control. Drama or what? Cue Mike with a bucket of water. Phew!! I’m glad it is all done and dusted...well literally. THANK YOU GUYS... and a huge thank you Barry and the Honister team for supporting our madness.

So, before I could blink I was back to work and preparing the dress for the show. I am pleased with the result though tmy biggest challenge will be taking away the stench of burning fabric! For me, the fire represented the pain and suffering, especially the chemo-therapy, of those suffering from cancer. However, my idea is to show that despite all of this there is genuine hope. The dress will be recreated so that it will rise again on the catwalk, like a phoenix on thursday night. In this respect with encouragement and support there really is hope and one of the fantastic aspects of the Toma Fund is the way in which kids who have come through the treatment support and reassure those that have been diagnosed with the disease, in the teenage cancer unit,

There was no ice cream from Buttermere Ayrshires (closed), and no fish and chips at Crosby' (too much of a detour), but looking on the bright side I am going back up to Honister after the show for the annual vintage car rally this Saturday. I have been told it is a sight not to be missed as these beautiful old cars are put through their paces on the 1 in 3 gradient of the mines track up to Fleetwith Pike (you can just see it in Brian's picture above). Check out the honister.com website for more details.
