A fantastic show was had at the Goldust by Johnny Lazer. I had the pleasure of working with him on his costume design which included some of my light up creations. The main piece worn was a white tank with insewn color fields in multicolorings (blue, green, yellow, fuscia). Johnny threw it up his own style by adding in a found vintage yellow baseball pant (with string crotch) and light up boats in reds and yellows that went very well with the soft blues of his upper body.
As always I love to have photos taken both on the evening and post show to show the different sides to the costume pieces but also to present the costume exactly as it was on the evening. The top two photos at the Goldust, were taken by Andrew Harvey (you can see his work at http://arharvey.com/ ) as well as the bottom two of Laura with my light-up glasses creation.
As well Johnny was photographed by Eddie Blagbrough http://www.eddieblagbrough.co.uk/ , in Johnnys flat in central London. Together me and Eddie created a sexy low lit adventure that allowed the costumes and his photography to play out to their best. Johnny wore the light up gauntlet made to be a metaphorical 'lighthouse' to shine out into the audience during his performance.
Finally the lovely Laura Fares, his amazingly talented drummer, wears a pair of my hand made light up glasses. During the performance they both were solid light and flashing to the beat of her drumming, giving her the attention she deserved to highlight her amazing talent. Both Johnny and Laura played an amazing show to great acclaim, and hopefully to promote Johnny to getting signed :) ! A great team to work with, and amazing photographers worked together with me to put these beautiful photos together. Thanks to everyone who helped out.

An amazing shop, Camden Interiors, on 19 Chalk Farm Road NW1 8AG (across from Camden Market, the entrance beside Cyber Dog) has picked up 2 lamps from my Spring Summer 2010 lamp collection. They are an amazing shop which features new trendy, and very chique designers. Their clients come to them knowing they are getting something fresh and new for their homes. A very excited stockist Atai, accepted my invitation to bring my lamps into the showroom upon our first meeting with great excitement saying that they would easily fit into the surroundings (with my agreement). My dream showroom has brick walls, hardwood flooring, and an eclectic mix of furniture from reclaimed sources. That is just what I found in this beautiful shop that I have had my eye on literally since I first moved to London. With a very catchy large rocking chair as its symbol and proudly floated outside its sign on the corner it is hard to miss on Chalk Farm road and I have passed it many times thinking to myself, one day Jeffrey that will be your shop, selling your lamps.
Go see the website and go to see the lamps on the basement floor (where the gorgeous fireplace is) right when you walk down the stairs. Situated amongst reclaimed wooden framed mirrors, and lovely antique desks and drawers, my lamps feel quite at home.

A bit of coverage by a lovely blog, featuring me and the up and coming new designers of London ala Mode. An excited discussion about what is to expect from the showroom that I will be featured in this month.
Another fab blog that presents tres chique new feature collections and pop-ups and talks about our work in the showroom at Liberty House.
What an amazing month this has been so far.
The showroom at Liberty House is all set up and buyers have been coming in for all of the designers for the last two days. I have gone out to get some appointments to much success. I have booked myself to start showing in a lovely shop that is one of my long time favorites in London, called the "Camden Interiors" : http://www.camdeninteriors.com/ . They will be for sale starting next week on Thursday !! Go see them in the sexy lower floor right set into the gorgeous mantle piece on an antique chest of drawers (specifically chosen spot by myself), and have a chat with the floor manager Atai. We had a great chat about the store and he said they love new designers because they keep the pieces they bring in "fresh and new" so that people keep coming back with high expectations for good quality and flare for design.
Fantastic :) ! Much more to come from the showroom experiences at London ala Mode pop up . If interested in viewing the showroom feel free to contact myself at :
