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!

If you couldn’t make it but would like me to send you a signed book plate, please email me your postal details to: zoey@zoeygoto.com and I’ll pop one in the post.

On Sunday evening I headed to the Victoria & Albert Museum to see the LFW collection from recent Central St Martins graduate Fei Fei Cicada. The format of the show was really successful – following a catwalk presentation, the audience were then invited into the sculpture galleries to photograph the models and clothing up close.
