Touching cloth cutting it over and over again then to finally stitch it. You then stop think how it feels how does it look so materials work together ? I make my choice and believe it to be right , I immediately doubt my initial choice and start all over again. I go around and around. I console myself as I make myself believe I’m getting better at choosing materials. I am now choosing colours too which makes it so very NEW !!

At the I LOVE Linen event at the V&A on Monday with Julia from @ilovelinen. It was suggested I wore linen so I dusted off some old Workhouse Garments and put on a Chicken George. I loved the Green colour of Julia’s dress and with her 70’s her feather cut and flicked back hair ! #linen #linenjacket #linendress #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #v&a

Always like to take a picture of the production of the same Garment hanging together like this. There is a lot of work gone on to achieve this and there is still the folding and packing to do before we send them out into the world.

We are in Luton today the capital of Hat making in England working on hats for winter and the summer collections. We were allowed into the holy sanctum to watch how it’s done. Very few people are ever allowed in this room. I took a female friend along today which seemed to open up many new doors all day long !! #hackneyunionworkhouse #workhousengland #hatters #madeinengland #strawhats #summerhats

Real Painters do not paint things as they are. They paint things as they feel them to be. The New collection based on Vincent Van Gogh is just getting started. #loving #artist #painter #hackneyunionworkhouse #workhouse #menswear #madeinengland

Spending some days creating Spring Summer 2019 collection based entirely on Vincent Van Gogh although the picture of Picasso seems to show quite brilliantly how the collection should feel. #colour #southoffrance #vincentvangogh #embroidery #summercollection #linen #cotton #safarishirt #japanesedenim #drawstringtrousers

😮 wow! What a vivid dream, perhaps like he says a memory from a past life. I'm definitely open to the idea that we've lived them, goes some way to make sense of David's exuberant & mischievous personality 😜.. an excellent insight from my learned and good friend @fore_ground #workhousengland #hackneyunionworkhouse #artisan #clothes #garmentsforlife #stories #dreams

One of favourite pictures from Pitti last week. It was the morning of last day and our customer for 2 years who had never met came around 11 am. I was worried he wasn’t going to show as we hadn’t seen him all week. He came back late afternoon to meet Ryoko and continue his order. We are very happy to meet and work with someone who is good at their job and has customers who want to wear Workhouse ! #beijing #shanghai #menswear #pittiuomo
