I think when you start your career in any industry, there is a period for everyone when it feels like your not getting anywhere. We have all been there. I know when I started blogging, I had no idea where it would go or what it could lead to. I didn't have a huge plan, I just wanted a creative outlet and so it was something fun to do. If you go back to the very beginning of my archive you will see I just wrote about what I liked or was inspired by, there was no method.

I think the first time that you realise your getting somewhere is when you can help someone else out in the industry. One of the first people that asked me to do that was Isolda London.  At the time they were only producing jewellery and Ale (the designer) was still in college. I still remember meeting them for the first time. We were all babies in the industry and we helped each other. When they started to produce clothes, I shot their first collection it was because I wanted to, not because they paid me or gave me anything. I think its so important that young untested talent supports each other. Thats what Isolda and I did.

A few years down the road and they have had a showroom at Paris Fashion Week, are stocked in Bon Marché and Moda Operandi and have been all over the press.

I like to think that I helped with that a little and there is nothing more rewarding then that.

They are some of the hardest working and kindest people I have ever had the pleasure to work with and I hope we will work together for the rest of our careers.
