Hello everyone!

A long overdue post but better late than never... here's the entire 'Welcome to Paultons' series shot especially for the 'Dream in Colour - The Art of Stylorouge' exhibition at Aubin Gallery.

Thanks to everyone who came to the private view even though I didn't get to speak to everyone very long! The show closes this coming Friday the 3rd of Feb so make sure you get down there to have a look if you can before then; there is plenty of amazing work on offer by my friends at Stylorouge from paintings to video installations. 1,2,3 GO!!

And here they are in all their printed glory at the Aubin gallery :)

The Dream in Colour exhibition is nearly upon us; posters and prints are lined up for press, finishing touches are being given to each piece and the gallery is preparing for our takeover.

More details and final poster to come later but I can say our private view night will be held on the 11th of January 2012 from 6pm at the Aubin Gallery in Shoreditch. It will then be open to the public from the 12th of Jan to the 2nd of Feb.

Try and make it down to see exclusive works from the likes of myself, Rob O'Connor, Aaron Munday, Mark Higgenbottam, Jamie Gibson, Mikkel Lundsager Hansen, Michele Rossi and Viv Dykes.

For now, here is one of my exclusive photographs from my piece 'WELCOME TO PAULTONS' - come down and see them all next year!!! xx

I've been working on something exciting...

Meanwhile, here's a sneak peak at what I've been up to for my own piece..

Sending copious amounts of love to my wonderful team..

My 3 amazing models Jessica Ly, Vicky Ly and Jami Luu; my lovely and hard-working assistant Candy Lai; talented MUA Gemma Peden, the ever-so-organised Fran Lima on production, lighting whizz Max Burton and of course the dream team Jessica Au, Kit Hoang and Luke Parle for all their help and patience on the shoot (as well as a darn good home-cooked lunch!!)

Stay tuned for more info/previews soon!

A very overdue post but still important all the same..

One of my very best friends Fah Chak graduated this year with an MA in Menswear at the RCA, creating (unsurprisingly) a beautifully ornate and covetable collection. Based on a broken love story between a knight and a princess, the Amore Armor collection oozes with romanticism and regality, juxtaposing softness with intricate laser-cut details and finished off with the Midas touch.

She has since scooped up an ITS#10 award, winning the opportunity to work for Maison Martin Margiela in Paris later this year, and has earned bucket loads of press on the way.

We had some fun together doing the shoot for the finalists catalogue a few months back, where we had to add a subliminal heart into the photograph.. see if you can spot the hearts (there's 2)!

She never ceases to amaze me with her mad skills (and ridiculously perfect haircut), and yet she remains one of the best pals a girl could have.

Me and the boyf will be hitting Thailand and HK this September and she's going to be our personal tour guide since Bangkok is where she calls home. Very exciting times!

Here's to an amazing designer and an even better friend! xx

There's been an awful lot of cakes recently (both baked and eaten).. here are some of the best:

Mum's beautiful and delicious Birthday Cake

My little sister's beautifully decorated mini chocolate cupcakes

My other sister's recent 21st birthday cake

Mine and my brother's shared 'Mahjong' birthday cake earlier this year

And finally one of my favourites - home-baked red velvet cupcakes topped with cream cheese frosting.. mmm!

N.B. All the Chinese style birthday cakes here were bought from Golden Gate cake shop in China Town, London - they are my first bakery of choice when it comes to birthday cakes! Go get your cake on!

Wowee it's been over a year since I last posted on here!

I have been busy working away at Stylorouge and completely lost my blogging momentum but going to try and jump back on the band wagon as from now since my website has been updated recently as well!

More interesting things later but for now, here's a funny photo of our little bunny named Lola whom we bought home with us at Christmas. She likes to laze around when she thinks we're not looking.. x

Go take a look at!

Recently I have been realllly busy balancing everything but have mainly been at Stylorouge designing loads and loads of album covers/logos/t-shirts for various companies. I have started to do a lot more hand drawing again and will scan these in as soon as I get a chance!

Bear with me for now and hope you enjoy my portfolio online...

Special thanks to the boyf for programming it all in for me :D

Have a lovely rest of the week!!
