‘Inspired by a recent exhibition of his photographs, we thought that you might enjoy a little reminder of some of the work by the great man himself, Norman Parkinson.

I am reading Grace Coddington’s biography at the moment, http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/dec/09/grace-coddington-review-autobiography-memoir,  a lady of some substance within the fashion world.  She herself was a Parkinson model and has many fond memories of the work that they did together, initially as a model and subsequently as a Vogue stylist and creative director.  The book is a great insight into the small world of fashion and is especially enjoyable, when like myself, you have played some part in it!

We are following Parkinson’s photography with a modern master, David Sims by following a similar mood in colour, texture and shape, unsurprisingly the story shot by Sims is styled by the great lady herself Grace Coddington!’

We had a very civilised party which we co-hosted with Yasmin Mills, girl about town and all round beauty!  She came along with her gorgeous girls, Maddy and Laurie plus a number of their pretty girl friends.  Beautiful people came and went throughout the evening along with a few of our very own fabulous and extraordinarily beautiful friends.  We took a few pictures but not too many!!
