Permanent PJs and pivoting designers: how the pandemic hit the fashion world

I was on the Eurostar, somewhere between St Pancras and Paris, when a senior member of the Guardian team called and suggested that it might be a good idea for me to turn around at Gare du Nord and return to London. It was 3 March 2020. This was not the plan. The plan had been to go to the Chanel show and report for the news pages. Instead, it was the beginning of all plans – work and otherwise – disintegrating. 2020 was a terrible year for the...

Bare-faced beauty that takes seconds

I’ve always said “no-makeup makeup” is a total swizz. We’re led to believe that it takes 15 seconds to achieve it when the reality is more like 15 steps. However, on this occasion, this model (Balmain SS21) is actually not wearing very much at all. All you need is a powder foundation – the new ones don’t sit in creases, a brow product that makes even overgrown brows look groomed, and a balm for the lips. For anyone who can’t be bothered with a...

I'm all locked down with nowhere to go – but that hasn't killed my lust for fashion

I recently contributed to an article in the humour magazine the Fence about novelists and their internet addictions, which led me to reflect on the amount of time I spend online. I could pretend that I spend most of it on the New Yorker website but I’d be lying: after doomscrolling, my main internet fix is looking at pictures of clothes. The pandemic has done little to pacify this tendency – my instinct towards consumerism was instilled at a...


Fit in my 40s: I’ve finally found my perfect online dance class – and I’m sticking to it

After almost a year of experimenting with online dance classes, I’m pretty certain that the most important thing is not what they do to your heart rate or, by extension, your overall fitness. You alone determine those things, by doing the routine regularly, and by putting your full effort in. No, what’s important is a workout that keeps you coming back. There are three things that help with this. First – loth as I am to say it, because I’m tight...

I’m glad I started work at 18. It was a lot more fun than going to school. When I opened my first shop it was a hangout for all my friends – a community before social media. I didn’t worry about the business side until I faced bankruptcy, five years later. That taught me a big lesson. I really enjoy being a designer. It’s a big creative outlet and it’s exciting to grow a brand and be in the eye of the storm of pop culture. People who wear...

Covid has made our family a talking point – and cured me of Twitter

There are few consolations to Covid, but it is at least interesting having a celebrity disease. We’ve become objects of fascination to friends and family who’ve not yet had it, and who’ve taken to quizzing us on our symptoms as if they’re small-town yokels who’ve heard we’re in Disneyland. One small mercy of Covid’s lethargy is that it has reduced – though not ceased – my Twitter use, since focusing on backlit screens has been taxing, and it’s...
