Hello! What have you been doing, peaches?
I have been trying to not work (it’s very hard for me) and doing quiet things. It’s so hot here at the moment. I know it’s only been two days of heat, but I am waiting for the change. I want to be able to get out and about without feeling exhausted and boiling. Do you know what I mean?
I stumbled across a great show (which I’ve been streaming online). It’s called Liberty Of London and I’ve just watched Season 2 (only four episodes, so totally doable in a day!) It’s such a great program. I love seeing all the behind the scenes drama and excitement, and the Liberty team are really full of smarts, eccentricity, wit and style. If you are able to, you should totally watch it too.
I particularly loved watching Liberty puppet-master Ed Burstell, fab firm-but-fair General Manager Lee, naughty receptionist Judy, gorgeous Omar (of The Cape Drape fame), creative storyteller Emma, cute-as-a-cheeky-button Louis, vintage genius Stelios (he of the rad jumpsuits!) and the amazingly innovative Liz Silvester who is getting the exclusive-luxe-established-meets-contemporary-cutting-edge combo so very right under Ed’s trusty eye! (Wait ’til you see Liz’s amazing mast and sail installation. Argh. It’s super beautiful!)
Obviously I’m a bit obsessed with Liberty. One of the projects in my upcoming book features Liberty fabrics. And once upon a time Liberty even stocked my books. I’m going to wind back a bit and find the first season next. If you love fashion, retail, design and a little bit of drama you will love this show too! Watch the first episode below and then do some canny hunting about for the rest!
(BTW, Liberty has their own craft blog here!)
