Alongside all the crazy Scottish Fashion Awards news and all the celebrating I have still been working like a super trooper in the studio as we have so many different projects on at the moment so there hasn't really been an opportunity to slow down or stop. This weekend I leant out my entire Vooodoo Zumbies SS12 collection and a few extra pieces to Auntie Flo for the filming of their new music video in Dalston Superstore. It was really refreshing meeting the actual band rather than a stylist and was so much fun packing them full of pieces for their film. I so wish I could have been down in London for the day to see it all come together and how everything was styled unfortuantely I had a long weekend of making up orders ahead of me. I can't wait to see the finished product of the music video and the pictures of them performing in Fabric in my collection! So exciting! A massive thank you to the lovely Ally Turnball for suggesting Isolated Heroes to them for this exciting project. Here's a little image from the day stolen off Ally's instagram ....
So Friday brought the news that I had been nominated for Young Designer of the Year at the Scottish Fashion Awards!!! To say i was squealing with excitement would be an understatement! I am still so overwhelmed and slightly shaken about being nominated it just proves that anything is possible when you put your mind to it and hard work really does pay off! Only ten months has past since I graduated and completed my degree at Heriot - Watt University and it is slightly insane to be nominated for such a high profile award and to be attending the Scottish Fashion Awards alongside some of my true fashion idols - Louise Gray, Christopher Kane etc. The last ten months have literally been a whirlwind for me since graduating I have set up my own label, moved into not one but two different studio spaces, Opened my online ASOS store selling our RTW line & diffusion pieces and dressed some incredible ladies - Kreayshawn, MC Gaff E, Charli XCX to name but a few and contributed to some of my all time favourite magazines & editorials : i-D, Idol, I love Fake etc. I really feel that this nomination has marked a milestone in my career as an actual designer and just proves how far you can come in a short space of time and that anything really is possible when you are passionate about something. So I would like to say a massive thank you to Tessa Hartmann and the whole Scottish Fashion Awards team. I am actually so excited for the night there are so many phenomnally talented people in attendance, Congratulations & Good Luck to all the nominees!!

Today we launched the new season on ASOS and we will be showcasing the new season at NIGHTWALK on the 1st of may! Get your tickets NOW! Here are a few images of within the studio walls from the last few weeks remember we have had some kinda ghetto tropical heatwave so excuse the fact we are all literally melting as we work .........
