So much love to all those who have bought pieces from the UNIQLO x Hana Tajima Fall / Winter collection.
Now the colours of the landscape have changed at it feels like Autumn, and I'm falling into those pieces too. Finding them like armour against the encroaching cold.
This is a post of all things that made me feel the way I felt when I designed these clothes, and how they still make me feel.
There are days when I question the value of social media, when I see how it has the capacity to make us feel less than, to feel that we are only what other people see of us.
But there is conflict because I also know it can be such an incredible way to connect to people, and I see for myself how much easier it is to be away from the people I love when I can see the beautiful things they make, and do.
So this is my pledge to swing the balance back into what is good. To #SaySomethingNice even if just to remind myself that it can make a real and actual difference in a person's life.
It's wonderful to be in the company of such an inspiring group of ladies for this. Go here to see the full Amazon Fashion campaign.
It was wonderful to be involved with the Museum of Modern Art #ItemsMoMA. So many incredible speakers and topics "Twenty-six iconic garments, accessories, and issues from the fashion universe, spanning the early 20th century to the present"
I am sorry to have missed in in person, busy in another time zone. But if like me you want to see the whole thing, here's the link to the livestream.

Home again with fingertips and bed warmed breath on glass still cold from the night. With morning light in pools on floorboards.

Happy new year to you all. It was a beautiful twelve months and I saw it out with my family around me. This year looks full of things to make and places to see, I'm excited for all the things I can see ahead of me and all the things I can't. x
