Clothes are lined up, models being prepped and the show is waiting to begin. I always get nervous at this point waiting to do my thing. I always have to steal myself away for a quick moment and this time it was no different especially since my original idea based on Cubism wasn’t going to happen. When the clothes I requested arrived the evening before it was clear I had to think of a new direction and fast because almost all the Cubism inspired looks had been requested by other stylists.

Luckily, Tartan and particularly Red, Black or grey has always been my thing and the bulk of the looks that arrived at my office were Tartan inspired. The model was ready to be dressed, hair and make up done. BOOM… ‘The Tartan Punk’ pops into my head and I’m ready to go.
