‘Fashion is an expression of the times. Elegance is something else again.’ Horst, 1984

Fashion and portrait photographer Horst P Horst (1906 - 1999) had a career spanning 6 decades. His beautiful images regularly graced the pages and covers of French, British and American Vogue ranking him up there with the likes of Richard Avedon and Irving Penn as one of the great photographers of the 20th Century.

He joined Vogue in 1931 under his mentor George Hoyningen-Huene, who he eventually superseded as Paris Vogue’s primary photographer. Over the years he shot fashion models, royalty, movie stars, nature and ancient ruins all with the same elegance, timeless poise and striking composition.

The V&A are currently showing a retrospective of Horst’s wonderful work, Horst: Photographer of Style until 4 January 2015 and I for one cannot wait to see it!

Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft’s 1st Birthday!

It's official, we're doing a pop-up shop at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft as part of their 1st birthday celebrations!

Ditchling museum is a gorgeously designed museum nestled in the heart of Ditchling village on the South Downs. This unlikely village has a strong history in the art and craft world, having had many world renowned artists and crafts people living and working in it's community over the years. For example typographers Eric Gill and Edward Johnston both lived in the village and Eric Gill is buried there. The museum celebrates these arts and craft ties with an amazing collection of work and objects created and used by these people right there in the village.

To celebrate their 1st birthday the museum is opening up it's doors for free 11am - 10pm on Saturday 20 September. We'll be there selling our wares as part of the Best pop-up shop, along with pop-ups from Brighton gallery & shop Unlimited and the lovely guys from SORT Design. The pop-ups will be open from 11am - 5pm after which there'll be a paper-cutting workshop and a DJ so you can dance the night away.

There are loads of events on throughout the day plus there's delicious cake, locally sourced foods and real ales so be sure to put it in the diary. Come on down have a look around and say hello, there's a free shuttle bus to and from Hassocks Station too so there's really no excuse!
