Frances Dunnery

I think he used to be in a band called something like 'it bites'. This is the promo image he's using for his new tour (and new album).

I heart Julian Casablancas

Due to the wonderful Mark Radcliffe I got to hear Julian Casablancas new album 'Phrazes for the Young' and look what I found on the cover! 'Out on the blue' is a cracking song too.

Philip Treacy + Mr Pig

The sadly missed Isabella Blow with the wonderful chapeau designer Philip Treacy and the also sadly missed Mr Pig, who used to receive his own fan mail.

From an interview

Which brought up the late Jack Russell, Mr. Pig.

Phillip has just acquired a new Jack Russell following the death of his beloved Mr. Pig. Mr. Pig would follow Philip to work and sit like a window dressing in the window. People would think him a toy until he would snarl at approaching customers, unable to understand why they should be allowed to enter what he believe to be his property. Phillip Treacy reasoned, this was not just home, but a place to sell hats. Mr. Pig gruntingly complied…..He became a know fixture to the store. His appropriately lavish funeral was attended by an illustrious crowd.


Your favorite client?

Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla. She loves dogs especially Jack Russell’s. She owns some, herself. The first time I met her, she had made an appointment at the shop. She arrived early. As I approached, I noticed Mr. Pig kneeling and staring adoringly at somebody. He did not like many people so I knew immediately I liked this person though I had not even met her yet.

The wonderfully inspirational Roald Dahl, and an 'At home with...' picture.

Miss Dita Von Teese

Even Miss Dita is beguiled by the charms of a passing Jack Russell at the Sonia Rykiel party!
