City is the Space of Story Making
'I left it at home', I said to my Dad. 'Home? This is your home', he replied, as we discussed the whereabouts of a piece of clothing. He was right. That was my home but I, without thinking, referred to my university halls, also as 'home'.  My language adjus...

PAULA KNORR SS19 | LFW
The Paula Knorr SS19 presentation was a kaleidoscope of glamour. Slicked back hair adorned sequin dresses and dramatic draping. The '70s evening wear was amplified by bright lights and mirrors; warm tones and silver in every frame. It was a showstopper to s...

Made In Dagenham at Edinburgh Fringe - COME SEE OUR SHOW
To say I've had a busy Summer is an understatement. I had a week in France, flew home, flew to New York 12 hours after arriving in London. I flew home again, went to Oxford to see my brother graduate (congrats bro!), then a day later went to Lisbon with som...

An Ode to New York City (And The Future)
I visited New York in April of last year with the primary reason of visiting East Coast colleges. I fell in love with one of them, and for the next 10 months or so, put everything I had into being offered a place.  I didn't get in.   I hinted at turbulent t...

Stripes in Soho
I was in London for almost exactly 12 hours after I returned from the South of France before flying to New York City. Going from the quiet and sunny French fields to the heart of downtown New York was a major change of scenery. In terms of a two week Summer...
