Leticia wears the Charlie May virgin wool suit with the half sheer silk shirt.

The new website is due to launch next week! (Can you feel the excitement!?) I wanted to share my favourite image from the shoot we did on Monday for the AW13 collection. I love it quite a lot; I just want to be her, pretty much for every photo we took, actually!  The campaign was shot with Leticia Lamb from Elite, by Nicole Maria Winkler, Make Up by Thom Walker, and Hair by Alex James Fairbairn.

The Danielle Foster x Charlie May bags are now available to buy from us on Danielle’s site, be the first to get one before they hit all the stores!


Excited to show you the final images from my SS13 lookbook, shot last Wednesday! It was my first time working with Nicole, who was amazing and gives the most fantastic direction. I also worked closely with stylist Nobuko Tannawa on the look and ideas behind the shoot, even though unfortunately she could’t be there on the day. A huge thank you to my team, who always make the day ridiculously fun and inspiring, and to Desiree who I possible couldn’t have completed the week without!

So, finally here it is, I’m super proud of this one! It was so much fun getting to finally work with Saga, one of my favourite fashion photographers, as well as the rest of the team which are fast becoming the Charlie May family. I’m usually not a fan of overly posey lookbooks but I think Tatjana made the clothes look incredible! We were all joking that we were going to bust out some of her moves waiting for the bus, or in line at the supermarket!

Lots of behind the scenes phone pics from the day we shot my AW12 film at Asylum in East London. The building we were shooting in was an old chapel, unchanged since it was bombed in WW2. I was so excited not just because of the location but because it was really the first time I was seeing the collection on somebody, seeing how the pieces worked as outfits and seeing them come alive.

Huge massive kudos to Layla Young for not complaining once even when being told to walk around barefoot in just tights and a sheer dress, when it was snowing outside! It was so cold that day, so we made a refuge shelter in the bathroom with portable heaters and fur coats, it got quite toasty! It was also a pleasure to work with Mark from Polymath films again, as he also produced the SS12 film and makes any shoot fun and exciting.

If you haven’t seen the AW12 film yet, then here goes.

So excited to show you guys the short fashion film we shot a couple of weeks ago. This was the weekend when it snowed and was freezing cold in London, we shot in a chapel that had been bombed in WW2 and was freezing so kudos to the amazing Layla! What a trooper.

I didn’t plan the film to be as scary as it is but when we got on set it just felt right and we felt the stronger the better. We drew inspiration from this Miu Miu film, in the way they had edited the model walking backwards and never showed the girls face. I have to dash to catch the rest of fashion week now, but I hope you love it!
