Last week I was invited to a press lunch celebrating Universal Design Studio’s pavilion for London Design Festival. The concept behind the design was repetition, so fittingly we were taught the art of Japanese sushi making – from Hoso-Maki Zushi (thin rolls) to my favourite – Ura-Maki Zushi (inside-out rolls).

‘Style Never Dies’ is the fitting title for my recent article, which celebrates Elvis Presley on the 40 year anniversary of his passing. GQ Germany have made my feature their front cover for the September issue and given The King 6 pages of editorial inside the magazine.

This wonderful exhibition currently at the V&A museum in London examines the work and legacy of influential Spanish couturier Cristóbal Balenciaga. It includes over 100 pieces crafted by ‘the master’ of couture, his protégées and contemporary fashion designers working in the same innovative tradition. Although perhaps a little more room could have been dedicated to the original Balenciaga garments (which are given as much floor space as his influence on contemporary designers) overall, it was a really inspiring showcase of a fashion designer using his intellect to explore female dress. The show is on until the 18th Feb 2018 and tickets cost £12.

Howdee! I’ve just returned from a book tour of Tennessee, including an Elvis Style book signing at the famous Lansky Bros store in Memphis (Elvis’ tailoring house of choice. The owner Hal Lansky has written the foreword for my Elvis Style book), plus an interview for the Memphis Flyer newspaper and radio interviews on Sirius XM and KWAM radio. Thanks to everyone who came out to the Memphis book signing!
