Australian l’Alpina sponsor French open WHEELCHAIR SINGLES and wimbledon doubles champion alfie hewett

As Alfie Hewett prepares for his Gentleman’s Wheelchair singles match against Frenchman Nicholas Peifer at The Championship at Wimbeldon, Italian tennis and lifestyle clothing brand Australian L’Alpina are delighted to announce they have become his new exclusive clothing and apparel sponsor.

Hewett, 2016 Rio double silver Paralympian, 2017 French Open wheelchair singles champion, 2016 Wimbledon wheelchair doubles champion and world No.6, and joins former Davis Cup player James Wards as the latest tennis star to join the ranks of Australian L’Alpina sponsored players.

UK Australian L’Alpina Managing Director Peter Coulstock comments:  “We are delighted to be sponsoring Alfie. At still only nineteen years of age, Alfie has achieved an outstanding amount of success. We hope that our clothing and apparel sponsorship will support him further and help him to achieve greater things in his career going forward. We wish him the best of luck at The Championships this year.”

 

The nineteen year old hails from Norfolk and was born with a congenital heart defect, Tetralogy of Fallot. Alfie underwent open-heart surgery at six months old and was diagnosed with Perthes Disease at the age of six. Alfie started playing wheelchair tennis in 2005 after attending a Tennis Foundation training camp. He played his first tournament in 2008 and was selected to represent Great Britain at the ITF’s European Junior Wheelchair Tennis Camp.

On his new sponsorship deal, Hewett said:  “I am so proud to be sponsored by Australian L’Alpina. The company has a long and prestigious reputation and heritage in professional tennis and it’s amazing to be one of the names amongst the likes of Ivan Lendl, Goran Ivanisevic and Paolo Lanzini.”

 

Hewett will debut his new Australian L’Alpina kit at The Championships at Wimbledon during the Gentleman’s Wheelchair Grand Slam. The Briton, who has formed a formidable partnership with World No.2 Gordon Reid, is going into this year’s The Championships at Wimbledon in very good form after becoming the first British wheelchair player in history to win the French Open.




After trying on his Wimbledon whites for the first time at the National Training Center in Roehampton, Hewett said:  “I’ve just tried them on for the first time, I like them. They give me full range of movement and I the style and the fit. I saw James Ward in the first week of Wimbledon, I watched his match, just so I could see what it looked like on him and envisage myself in that position. I’m a big Norwich fan as well, so the green stripes do me very well.”

 

Hewett was visibly excited as he said: “I really like the kit, it’s very comfy to play in, I have all range of movement, so it feels nice and Australian L’Alpina have given me a lot of kit in different colours and I have had a lot of good feedback from it.”

 

On defending his Wimbledon Doubles title with Gordon Reid, Hewett said: “We won the doubles last year, so we’re going there to defend our title and that will be tough. Everyone will be gunning for us, but once again, we’ll be at our home grand slam so the support will be great. He’ll have his friends and family and I’ll have my friends and family, so hopefully people from Britain will come out and support us. That’s one of the best parts of this event is knowing that we’ll get some great support. We’ve been working hard, we’ve had a few tough losses recently, but we’re ready to go.”

 


On his first round match up against Nicholas Peifer,, Hewett said this: “I’ve avoided the top two seeds which is good. Nicholas and I have had some close matches in the past and anything can happen on grass, so I’m looking forward to it.”

 

Despite being considered a dark horse for the Singles title, Hewett and partner Gordon Reid are favourites to retain their Wimbledon Doubles title from last year. Hewett told us that the pressure in the Doubles matches are much greater at Wimbledon than anywhere else.

 

The Norwich City season ticket holder has had a good rivalry with Argentine Gustavo Fernandez in recent months, beating his compatriot in the Rolland Garros final only weeks after losing to him in straight sets.

 

Hewett had this to say on his recent match-ups against Fernandez: “Anything can happen, it’s a tough surface, and movement is exposed. Both of our movements will be key to winning the match I have to focus on my first match against Nicholas (Peifer), if I win and he wins, then I think we’ll play each other in the semi’s, so a rematch of the Rolland Garros final will definitely be interesting.




Australian L’Alpina are an Italian brand with a heritage that goes back as far as 1946.  Originally founded in 1946 by Leardo Gabrielli, the L’Alpina brand of clothing soon grew to dominate the fashionable tennis scene in the late 50s and early 60s and was the benchmark for contemporary styling and practicality.   The popularity of the brand, with its unique Kangaroo motif lead to the range of clothing extending from the tennis court to the leisure market and the ‘Australian’ brand was born.

The retro styled L’Alpina range of clothing is still being designed and made in Italy and is exclusively available in the UK from Australian clothing.

 

Introducing Jack Russell London’s Autumn/Winter 17 Collection

For this Autumn/Winter 17, premium accessories brand, Jack Russell London unveils its new collection
featuring premium full grain goat leather and Korean nylon. Jack Russell evolved from the union of
leather bag and accessory specialists, Jack Russell Malletier Paris. The brand’s approach was to create a
range of bags and accessories that made it easier for the urban man to live and work exactly how they
want to.

51°30’ LEATHER
Comprising of premium full grain embossed goat leather, the 51°30’ Leather collection is available in
three colour ways – black, burgundy and lava – most feature Jack Russell’s signature contrasting
burgundy lining and palladium or pale gold hardware. The range consists of three products, including a
backpack and briefcase, which is available in two sizes, each with two zips and a padded technology
pocket to house an iPad or laptop, as well as dedicated areas to hold documents and office essentials.
The 24-hour bag has been designed specifically with the urban commuter in mind. The two zips allow
separation of office essentials and workout kit. With multi-functionality in mind, the 24-hour bag can be
used for an overnight stay or as a carry-on bag for a long haul flight.

51°30’ NYLON
Constructed in Black and Khaki Korean nylon, Jack Russell’s nylon range features a contrasting lining and
palladium hardware for a contemporary urban look. With a style to suit every taste, the line comprises of
a Camera Bag, Backpack, Slim Briefcase and 24-hour bag

51°30’ SLG
Similarly to the mainline leather collection, the wallet and cardholder range is manufactured using full
grain embossed goat leather. In addition, Jack Russell has also introduced smooth calf leather into this
collection. The accessories line features a contrasting lining and pale gold hardware to perfectly
complement the leather and nylon collections.

Finally, each item is finished with Jack Russell’s signature logo. Inspired by the concept of travel without
borders and referencing Morse code – the shortest and most far reaching method of communication – the
logo’s graphic, minimalist design reflects Jack Russell’s bold outlook and straightforward design
aesthetic.

Geographic coordinates are a recurring characteristic of the brand. Each range is inspired by a global
location. Borough, Jack Russell London’s signature range, for example, is named after the site of its
London headquarters.

Committed to using high quality design features and fabrics, Jack Russell is passionate about every
detail that goes into its collection and is set to make this Autumn/Winter 17 collection unforgettable.

Henry Holland Announced as Keynote Speaker

Press release: June 2017

Following his 10th anniversary, a successful second collection with Habitat, and on the cusp of launching his own concept store in China, Pure London is delighted to announce British fashion designer Henry Holland as its second keynote speaker.

 

Henry’s Pure London address on Monday 24th July at 3.20pm will cover topics ranging from his unconventional route into the fashion industry and how to remain authentic, negotiating the collaboration process, how to regularly engage customers and keep them excited about the brand, and his greatest challenges.

 

 

After graduating from the London College of Printing with a BA (Hons) Journalism, Henry was catapulted into the fashion limelight in 2006 with his irreverent ‘fashion groupies’ slogan tees featuring catchphrases such as “uhu Gareth Pugh” and “Get your freak on Giles Deacon”. In February 2008, after two seasons showing with Fashion East, House Of Holland held its first solo show on the London Fashion Week schedule to critical acclaim. House Of Holland is firmly established in the international fashion arena and in January 2012 was awarded a two-season Fashion Forward sponsorship. Now in its 10th year, House Of Holland boasts an impressive roster of international premium stockists including Browns Focus, Colette, Emporium, Harvey Nichols, IT, Isetan, Liberty, Lisa Via Roma, Matches, Net-A-Porter, Opening Ceremony and Shopbop. Henry is also heavily involved in collaborations with Debenhams, Umbro and Habitat.

 

In his own words Henry took an alternative approach to entering the fashion industry; “I kind of worked back to front and launched my business with one of the most commercial products that you can which is a printed t-shirt, and then I built an aesthetic off the back of that. I think that for a lot of people they spend time in a design school working on their aesthetic and developing their creativity, then for the first two years of their career they really showcase that and maybe after three years they drill that down to something more commercial and viable product for the consumer. I did that whole process completely back to front. The biggest challenge for me has been communicating to the consumer and the media that we are more than a t-shirt brand.”

 

Renowned for his brand collaborations, Henry’s recent collection with Habitat has drawn him into the world of interiors. Talking about the process Henry says; “We translated the ready to wear collection, evolving that into homeware, using the same prints and the same embellishment techniques, so we continue to tell that story. It was really about working with their team to work out ways to execute that because there are different techniques being employed, different ideas and different materials that I’ve never worked with before. For example, I’ve never made a rug before or worked with those kinds of suppliers so it’s about working with them to help execute the concept and the ideas and build it as a range to make sense to their customer.

 

The most exciting parts of the collaboration are working on different executions and different categories. They worked out the different techniques and we utilised a lot of our print and pattern work. We work with people for two different reasons, to develop into different product areas and deliver new and exciting things for customers, and also to utilise them for their different experiences, expertise and factory contacts.”

 

With a successful wholesale business as well as See Now/Buy Now collections comes other challenges such as the pace of the industry. Henry says: “Slow down. Give us a chance to breathe. It’s a very competitive market and it’s a very competitive fashion calendar. There is a challenge for smaller brands to keep up with the pace of the bigger brands and their bigger budgets. I think it would be great if there was a better reception to people creating collections with a frequency that suits them. Often having to sit within certain fashion calendars throughout the year is really tricky, and we’re very much dictated to. There are so many brands out there today since I started, the increase in the number of brands in the market place has exploded, so given the volume of brands there could be less structure in terms of the frequency in which all of those brands deliver.”

 

On the See Now/Buy Now model Henry says; “It’s important to balance the See Now/Buy Now model with a much stronger core collection which is more trans-seasonal and much more permanent for a brand and then have these peak showcase collections which are See Now/Buy Now.”

 

Taking 26% of the business share, China is an important and growing market for House Of Holland. It will be the first market to see a House Of Holland concept store, something that’s been on Henry’s career bucket list; “I would like to build our own retail concept whether that’s bricks and mortar or more of an online proposition. To create something that showcases our world as a whole, as an entirety encompassing all our collections and product categories under one roof, there’s an opportunity there to create something really exciting.”

 

Julie Driscoll, Portfolio Director for Pure London, commented; “Henry is a much loved and respected figure in the industry and we are delighted to welcome him to Pure London. I think visitors will find his address insightful and informative.”

 

Henry will add to a line-up of more than 30 inspiring speakers across the three days, including Sunday’s keynote address by Dr Pam Hogg. A whole host of panel discussions, Q&A’s, trends, insights and fashion-forward catwalk shows are set to further enhance the visitor experience and guide buying choices at Pure London.

 

Other speakers include Ben Allingham, Head of PR and Marketing at Just Hype, Alice Ratcliffe, Brand Lead, Appear Here, Olivia Cantillon, Director, Ownthelook.com and Nichole de Carle, Lecturer at London College of Fashion for Activewear, Lingerie & Swimwear Design, as well as Sara Maggioni, Director of Retail and Buying at WGSN. A highlight for buyers, stylists and designers each season, Maggioni will share the key looks, colours, shapes and fabrics set to be huge in Spring Summer 18. These looks will then be brought to life in the main runway show, with all outfits available to order from brands at Pure London.

A Photographer who all inspires | Andy Paul

By Nelly Ajvasi

My interest started in photography in 2000 when I bought my first camera. Initially, it was for taking pictures for work but soon became interested in taking pictures of people. When I first started, my camera was a film camera and I had to wait for the images to be developed before I could see how they looked. As I was impatient, I decided to also learn the art of developing film. When digital started to really take off, I ditched the film camera and embraced digital technology. As I was now able to see my images straight away, I was able to start working with light in a positive and instant manner. I enjoyed working with light and love it to this day.
When I have a plan for a particular type of shoot, it can take weeks to be completed. Each shoot takes planning to get the model, MUA, and venue, then a few hours shooting, followed by a few hours editing. Sometimes the edit can be a few minutes tweaking a few things such as exposure, white balance etc and sometimes I can spend half an hour on an image. Some friends of mine can spend hours on a single image, building a composition. It takes a lot of practice, but every time I do a shoot, the images just seem to get better and better. Another advantage of shooting so many models is you gain a great network of people to work with. The photography network is extensive and there are so many people out there willing to be part of your projects.

I enjoy location work but really enjoy studio work, once again, I get the chance to manipulate the light to do what I want it to do. Here are some of my favorite images from studio work.

 

A designer with the right feel for fashion

My name is Dina Malkova, I’m a designer, maker, writer-beginner, businesswoman and wife. I’m a huge fan of fashion, colours, markets, embroidery, green tea with lemon, eclectic styles and folk singing.

Some of my earliest memories involve discovering and creating. I have really vivid recollections of how incredible it was to wear a hand-made dress or make my own sandals and have people asking where I got them. Another favourite  memory is when as children my friend and I put on shows, making costumes and selling handmade tickets door to door around our neighbourhood for our choreographed backyard dances and cover versions of pop music.
The winding path that led me throughout my life involves running a big hotel in Tashkent, setting and running a fashion design business; Human Wear and studying enterprise management for the creative arts at the University of Arts in London. In a combination of timing, hard work and a dash of luck, I found myself striking out to create my own art as a career.
Inspiration is everywhere for me. It’s in the air, sunlight, my brother’s paintings, folk songs, a little girl walking down the street in pink Wellingtons, colour of a freshly caught fish scales, in witty and funny conversations with my mum, window shopping with Madi, my friend. As long as I stay open, it’s there waiting for me. There are so many people who have influenced me in thousands ways, both large and small. The most important has come from my amazing customers and friends, who have really kept me going with their generous friendship, encouragement and support.
 


I spend a lot of time gathering and soaking up inspiration and then suddenly, explosions of ideas go off one after

Nellyfee

another. Sometimes the inspiration strikes so quickly that I’m scrambling for a scrap of paper to sketch or scribble. I love collecting old hand-made vintage fabrics and then use them in my designs. For me, working with vintage textiles is about seeing and feeling the texture and history of the place they come from. I like the fact that the old fabrics or materials can be re-cycled and re-used again and again.

I am designing and making clothes that take into account the environment, the health of consumers and the working conditions of people who make them for me. I try to use as much organic raw materials as possible, such as silk made by worms fed on mulberry tree, or cotton which grown without pesticides and not been harvested by children. My items don’t involve the use of harmful chemicals and are often made from recycled and reused textiles.
Some of my items I make myself, some I commission to artisans in Sussex and Central Asia.

Judy

It’s Judy Judy Judy in the new show aptly titled Judy now playing at the Arts Theatre in Central London.

 
We are treated to Judy Garland in three pivotal stages of her life. There’s the young Judy before her Wizard of Oz role – ages 13 through 16 – brilliantly played by Lucy Penrose. Then there is Palace Judy – the time in Garland’s life when she was performing on Broadway at the Palace Theatre, age 29 – with Belinda Wollaston in the role. Then we’re treated to CBS Judy – the 47 year-old star (played by Helen Sheals) who, unbeknownst to all, was in the last year of her life while having her own television show on America’s CBS network.

The intertwining of Judy’s lives in this show is both fantastic and fabulous. It’s also tragic because Judy died at the age of 47 in London due to an overdose of barbiturates in 1969 (a few days later the Stonewall riots kicked off). Judy had such a tumultuous life, and it didn’t make matters any better in that she was an extremely insecure, and nervous, woman. Young Judy’s father (played by Joe Shefer) ran a cinema, but he also had a predilection for young boys. Her mother Ethel (Amanda Bailey) was an extremely controlling stage mother. But Palace Judy’s life isn’t much better. In her 20’s she takes various drugs just to help her get through each day, and even though she married five times, it was Sid Luft (Harry Anton) who was the one who really cared for her.




But CBS Judy (who actually opens the show with a rounding version of ‘Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries’ – sung brilliantly by Sheals) seems to be on the right track –  she’s got a hit television show – but the network keeps on demanding more and more from her, and the bills keep piling up. It’s too much for a woman as fragile as Judy to take, and even though her death is not played out on stage, we all know what’s going to happen to her next.

Judy is excellent. It’s all due to the three women who play Judy, they are all very good – but it’s Penrose who shines a bit more because she plays the version of Judy who is young and innocent, and Penrose conveys that excellently. When all three sing ‘Almost Like Being in Love’ – it’s an event! And when all three get together to sing the finale – ‘Over the Rainbow’ – there’s not a dry eye in the house. 

Director and writer Ray Rackham, along with the rest of his crew, have staged a musical that tells the life of Judy Garland who was larger than life. And the parallel timeframes used in this production is genius.  Cleverly, the musicians also act in the show, including Judith Kramer, who plays CBS Judy’s assistant. This same production was at the intimate Southwark Playhouse last year and it’s good to see that practically the same cast and crew were brought back to stage this show in a bigger theatre for more people to watch it.

Judy is a fabulous and fantastic show.  It’s only playing at the Arts Theatre until June 17th, so catch it as soon as you can. Tickets can be bought here:

IMATs final success for Kitty Noofah

Kitty was Accepted into the finalist international makeup artist trade show Battle of the brushes and today she won the second place against all other countries present.
For the inspiration of international beauty, I looked at the last Miss Universe pageant’s national costume round to see how different cultures have created their own take on beauty, combining history with modern talent through the work of costume design.
It is clear that through all of their differences all the beautiful women at this pageant portrayed several things in common. Water and the sun under which all cultures have prospered.
My inspiration uses the earth colors to show that beauty resonates from where we all came, where we have all been born and where will all rest. Flowers on the face to create femininity but harsh lines to show the strength of all people. Water flowing through the rivers and the oceans of the world binding us all no matter the territory and the sun colours framing it all.
