  1. Gorgeous details and fantastic work .My question: would this not have been even better and greater if worn by an iconic model ?? I am thinking of somthing like a young Jane Birkin, Lauren Hutton or Jean Shrimpton. Or maybe that is overgilding the lily ?? Where are the iconic models of our time ????????

  7. These are some of the best images Ive seen in a long time. But the braids! Hope they are not the new thing. As Carly Simon would say...haven't got time for the pain!

  8. Stunningly beautiful...all. So pleased that he was fortunate enough to leave his inspirational design style in such capable hands. Tribute is clearly being paid here.

  9. Dear Gaye, I adored this collection and the hair is a work of art. I'm so pleased for Sarah as she has been designing it for so long and this collection brings out a softer side xx
