Yasmin's Party

14 Sep 2009 - Share →

I was working again with Yasmin Le Bon recently on a December cover and she invited me to the launch party of her new range for Wallis.

I’ve known Yasmin for a LONG time, longer than either of us would care to admit. I did one of my first ever big trips with her when I’d only just started in the business. It was to Kenya and we stayed on the most amazing Island. On the way home there was a mix up with my flight back to London and I was really stressed. When Yasmin heard what was going on she marched over to the BA desk and told them “You WILL get my friend on this flight” even though I’d only known her for less than a week. She was brilliant and although she wasn’t even on my flight (she was off to Paris), her tone and manner certainly told them. Needless to say they found me a seat (and upgrade) instantly and I’ve looked up to her ever since. Anyway here we are all these years later and I’m so proud of her achievement at Wallis. She has done a lovely blouse in the most amazing emerald green – thats the one I want!
