    Terry Jones, a diamond geezer!

    Back in the late 1970s and in direct response to Punk, Terry Jones, then the art director of British Vogue realised that the most exciting fashion was actually happening on the streets of London and not on the catwalk, bravely he resigned and started a magazine called i-D.

    Terry invested his time, his passion and his money into creating a magazine that reflected simply and clearly fashion at its most pure, the fashion of the street. In the late 1970s and early 1980s London streets were vibrant and bursting with fashions way more extreme, inspiring and audacious than anything in the mainstream of fashion. They were the catwalk of the world.

    Terry Jones saw this and through i-D allowed the rest of the world to see it too. A gesture so clever, insightful and altruistic which in many ways reflects Terry's whole attitude to life. His clear love and devotion to and of his wife Trish is also the love he expressed for all of us, making us all feel part of their family and is in part the reason they are loved back by so many people.

    In i-D they created a platform for a totally new generation of fashion image makers, designers, stylists, journalists and models, who they encouraged and championed. In so doing creating the one of the most important magazines ever.

    NB: Yesterday, The British Fashion Council gave Terry and Tricia Jones the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2013 British Fashion Awards

    Mark Wardel's Bowie mask

    A couple of weeks ago I had the great pleasure of interviewing Steve Strange, a joy and a revelation in itself, but after the interview Steve introduced me to his friend, the artist Mark Wardel. Mark had a cast of David Bowie's face from the seventies from which he had created this beautiful and extremely lifelike mask of the Aladdin Sane Bowie image. To my delight and total surprise a week later, a box appeared on my desk that contained the 'Pin-Ups' version. Life is wonderful at times. Thank you Mark.

    Be@rbrick in Shanghai!

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    If you happened to be in Shanghai this weekend, you might have caught YOHOOD2014 - the exhibition dedicated to the cult Be@rbrick toy, curated by my friend the actor, producer and entrepreneur Edison Chen

    He asked me to customise the Be@rbrick, so inspired by Edison's Instagram where he posts pictures of clouds from his long and very frequent airplane journeys I decided to make my Be@rbrick out of the time-lapse clouds I photographed this summer, suggesting a world free of national boundaries, one people, no divisions.

    Imagine.
