I've been so busy going to festivals and events that I haven't had time to write about any of them! Hopefully in the next week I'll try and catch you up with what I've been doing... get yourselves ready for an onslaught of posts and pictures.
At the beginning of June in the Platform Bar at Netil House in London I was lucky enough to be invited to sell at the launch of online festival lifestyle magazine Field Guide, which I've been blabbering on about for ages, here's what happened that evening
My friend Claire and I arrived early to help to set up for the evening's festivities; lots of trademark Field Guide red and white stripes draped around and festoons of fairy lights everywhere. We also got a chance to meet Anika from Urban Face Designs who glittered us up before the party kicked off!
Next to my little stall was the inimitable Charlie Gates from Mind Like Magpie, whose headdress you can see Claire sporting above. You can also read a great feature about her and her arty accessories on Field Guide. To the right of me was fellow Bristol designer Lydia Cooper, who you can also see above. Other familiar festival clothing institutions Puckoo Couture and Fudd Hoods were also present.
My gorgeous songbird friend Lucie Zara, who I have briefly mentioned before, opened the night's musical entertainment and was glorious as per usual... I can't wait to tell you the story of her surprise set at Glasto!!
The rest of the evening was a blur of absinthe cocktails which were supplied by Pernod, chatting to unicorns (see the Fabulus of Unicorns above), munching on free Propercorn, swinging to music, catching up with old friends and making some more... it all ended with my highlight of the evening; a dance session lead by The Faun. I think this can only be described as slightly erotic festival aerobics... Have a gander at my Insta video if you can't quite picture that.
You can see some official pictures of the evening here and keep tuned for a few more festival related posts from me within the next week! I've just got back from running a glitter face-painting stall at Secret Garden Party and also have my highlights of Glastonbury to share with you as well as a few other festivals; for more constant updates follow me on instagram & twitter.
