I had a great treat the other day. A visit from the fashion guru Hirofumi Kurino, Creative Director of United Arrows; one of the biggest clothing retailers in Japan. Our meeting was arranged by a mutual friend, and what made it all the more special was that he knew well this area of London, Spitalfields, where my studio is based. So it also gave him the opportunity to visit some old haunts, and pick up some samples of richly coloured African fabrics. More: A fashion guru

Judging from our Google rankings it has reached way beyond our initial expectations…and cultural boundaries. More: Stop Press!
