My dear friend Alice is in the final stages of production for her first capsule collection. Her label May provokes fantastical contradictions … her clothes whisper and shout at once, murmuring of magic and transformation.

She is currently awake at all hours, braiding / binding / shredding / threading / creating and sometimes crying.

In her frenzied weeks, Alice found time to show me the other side of fashion. Her layered notions reveal a built state of escape – ironically the product of hours and hours spent in her workroom.

She looked on with exhausted anticipation as I played dress ups.

    Hey babe, I’ve been reading your blog and absolutely loving it…I’ve just realised though that I did the makeup for the Frock Paper Scissors shoot featuring Alice’s clothing! Small world!!
