duck & bees at fashion week

by Marie-Paola Bertrand-Hillion
Twice a year for London fashion week,  you play the same game, you dress up, show off and pretend you are important in the world of fashion. All the world's catwalk and this season I rocked up my plastic duckies outfit on the street of London.

With it neoprene base and stitched on plastic ducks, it is  perfect outfit for London uncertain weather where the streets could turn into giant pond! I remember my joy when I found this whole lot of plastic ducks in the baby care section of Pound land, with the combination of colours and texture, I could straight away picture a new design.  I am sure I looked manic filling frenetically my pound land basket with all this plastic toys on front of dismayed  non-yummy mummies.

I was lucky to meet with my favourite street style photographer Marie Paola, that travel all the way from Paris to capture British stylish & eccentric  people.  

We decided to meet at Gareth Pugh in Waterloo but anti fur militants where blocking the way and making it impossible to shoot.  We then decided to migrate to the iconic waterloo bridge which match well with the outfit as it seems that my little duckies are ready to take a swim in the Thames!

For september colour walk, I opted for an autumnal  look, wearing a vintage 60s deshabillé, it is a bit like going in the street in your dressing gown but who cares in London?

Combined with a bees and flowers headpieces, bucolic and pastoral, I felt I look a bit like a Shakespearian character in "Twelves nights" and people said painting my eyebrow in such a bright colour really changes my features and is a bit disturbing.

like always, Sue Harding now how to capture the moment making us look like atemporal characters from a children illustrated book.   

 I was at my desk playing with a soft toy barbie (only heads and limbs are plastic and the rest is like wooly toys) and bending it around my neck where the fit reach the head, I realised it was making a bracelet.  So I decided to adorned it with colourful chunky beads & pompons to make a bendy yoga bracelet barbie for Sue Kreitzman.  I am pretty proud of my invention because I think no one has never done it before! best things always happen when I daydream and idea just connect to each other by accident.

I found this collector vintage gnomes of a great quality in a car boot sale, colours  of the clothes and shape gave me the idea of the neckpiece, in a car boot sale is always more  interesting when you find a lot, several of the same item.  I decided to create a story and revisit disney fairy tales.  I reworked the clothes of the gnomes.  In the original story, the dwarfs are working down the mine to extract diamonds.  
In the follow I imagined, they wear the diamonds on their outfits and are turned into a bling-festival version of themselves.
