Buy it now: my edit for Other Shop

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Do you know about Other Shop? Oh yes you do, it’s the store formerly known as B Store. But that’s no more and in its place on Kingly Street we have a brand new entity, comprising a shop of lovingly-chosen goodies (many by new-to-market designers), an online store, plus an own label with a DRG-friendly unisex aesthetic – fittingly called ‘Other’.

And oh look, I’ve done a guest edit for them! Some of the names sold at Other Shop are well known (in fact, owners Matthew Murphy and Kirk Beattie have nurtured many of them from the start). Examples: Peter Jensen, Christophe Lemaire, Our Legacy. Others are recent graduates or just not very shouty brands. Continue reading

Models from Elsewhere: Andrea Lindstrom

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

When I started this project, ‘Models From Elsewhere’, I pictured model apartments decorated with family mementos. Maybe knick-knacks on mantlepieces or photos tacked to a wall. But no, the reality is that models, by their nomadic nature, don’t have lots of possessions, they keep their photos as most Gen Y-ers do – inside their phones and laptops. Instead they have wearable keepsakes; in the case of Andrea Lindstrom from Union Models, jewellery, perfume, and her brothers’ sweatshirts. Continue reading

Models From Elsewhere: Marianna

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s not often you turn up on a shoot to find your model baking a cake, but that’s exactly what happened on our latest Models From Elsewhere shoot. 21-year old Marianna from M&P Models, has been in London for a year, fitting castings and shoots around her architecture studies. Originally from Poznan in Poland, she lives with a flatmate in King’s Cross where she can be found when not studying at Central St Martins nearby. Continue reading

Models from elsewhere: Jennifer

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Models from Elsewhere is a portrait series about models. New to London or just passing through, these young, independent spirits travel light…

“I was living in a flat sharing with two boys and I was always the messy one – ‘creative messy’! And they were really neat and clean. When they went into my room there was always fabric lying around and papers and sketches on the walls. Continue reading

I’ve been Burberry-ed

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

It’s not often I post photos of me on this site because it’s not that kind of blog but I’m making an exception on this occasion because I know people like to see exactly who is spouting all this information and opinion every once in a while. Oh who am I kidding, I’ve been Burberry-ed! Continue reading

Models from Elsewhere: Chelsea

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Straight off the plane from New York, 20 year old model Chelsea from M&P Models was the second in my Models From Elsewhere series. This sunny, Carolina-born dancer hosted us in her tiny King’s Cross flat, did cartwheels on demand and waxed lyrical on her love of dancing, vintage and AsosContinue reading

Models from elsewhere: Genesis Vallejo

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl


A little portrait shoot I did a couple of weeks ago with photographer Flora Deborah. We were interested in the idea of models from elsewhere. Models have a transient life as they generally don’t stay put for long before they’re off travelling somewhere else. Continue reading

From the vaults: Rainbow rollergirls

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

One of my oldest shoots, these pictures* were taken on a freezing November day in an Epping airfield. I don’t remember the exact year, but definitely over ten years ago. We had been invited to submit a shoot for a Japanese exhibition and the photographer had an idea. “I thought we could do nudes.” Continue reading

Reiss’s pieces

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Just before Christmas, Reiss asked me to take part in their guest stylist programme. They gave me free rein in their fashion cupboard (ie, the entire flagship store – whoop!) and let me dress my model in a mash-up of menswear and womenswear (and some of my own tat ‘archive’ bits). Reiss’s own Jonathan Weatherley shot the pictures in their studio, Sonia Bhogal did the make-up and I was thrilled with my model, Hirschy from Select. Don’t you love her intense eyebrows and Mean Girls stare?

Most of the clothes are sold out now or in the sale. The camel men’s coat is in the sale for £142 and it’s a really beautiful coat! The red shoes are by Underground shoes who incidentally just did the shoes for the Thierry Mugler menswear show

I was lucky to get Hirschy when I did as she jetted off home to Australia for the holidays the next day. But I did manage a quick fire Q&A with her first…
Favourite photographers?
Mert & Marcus, Camilla Akrans and Mario Sorrenti 

Favourite shoot?
A brilliant shoot I did with Tank magazine for Liberty – in a completely bizarre set with a load of random  props. It was like a crazy jungle!
Favourite designers?
Zimmermann for their vibrant coloured swimwear, Sass & Bide for their cut-out stuff and Acne for the shoes.
Can you recommend any Australian shops?
In Melbourne I like mostly vintage shops. I’ve bought heaps of stuff from Lion in Love on Brunswick Street – I still wear the little black wedges I bought there years ago.

Hirschy is with Select
