In Praise of the Baby Billingham

With all the recent announcements of the shiny new things coming out of Photokina this year I feel it’s time for an ‘in praise of…’ post on a product I own that is not new (or particularly shiny) and has seen a bit of a revival in usage since I purchased a

Zimbabwe Fashion Showcase – Behind the Scenes

This year I’ve been working with Chiedza Dawn Ziyambe, founder of Zimbabwe Fashion Showcase (ZFS) who has her annual fashion show running from 28-30 July in London and Birmingham.
