"The show went well. It was Creatures' first real show, in the past we have just done presentations, so this was quite a change. We have been prepping in NY for the past week, but the last three days before the show were the intensive casting and fitting days.

This collection was one of my favourites to work on so far. While this collection is a bit more commercially driven than the last, which was more developmental, they really brought to focus a more defined Creatures of The Wind girl. Within each beautifully tailored piece was organised chaos – exploding prints and holographic stars, plastic raffia checks and jacquards in 1960s plastic lawn chair colours, mixed with wrinkled cotton in dusky hues, and my favourite, see through snakeskin lame from the 1970s. This collection was concise and to the point, playing with sportswear tailoring and couture techniques; such as lining a dress with horsehair so that it’s lofty and voluminous effortlessly; the combination of which really allowed for a certain sensuality and sexiness to be present in looks, which I love!

The soundtrack was haunting, fun, and beautiful. Shane and Chris describe the collection as having "monstrous innocence" and the music truly reflected this. My highlight was watching them take their well-deserved bow at the end, which is something they have been wanting to do for the past two seasons but have not been able to, due to always doing presentations.

What's next? Attending shows in New York and beyond that I am really looking forward to seeing what the London designers are cooking up. Also I'm looking forward to getting a full night's sleep!"
