Excited for *The Sustainability Sessions* 🌍 My own new live Monday events in London from Monday 9th Sept all the way through to Monday 28th Oct. Get your tickets👆🏼
Mondays can be dull, dreary & dreaded so I’m inviting us to take them back for ourselves, giving us tools for life to make Mondays more meaningful & every day that bit better!
So join me for honest conversations as I talk to some of my incredible friends & experts I admire who are all primed to help impart real life advice with a conscience. THRILLED everyone said YES!
We’ll be chatting about how we can make smart, easy choices that are better for our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing and of course better for Mother Earth too. Learn with me as we discuss how to be more sustainable in food and fashion plus upcycling at home and making wellness work for you. Get to know greener beauty swaps, your cycles and fertility, and be guided through career crises, the power of mentoring and how to be confident in talking money and ambition. .
Come to learn together, join our community, maybe make a new friend. But above all take home some practical tips and recommendations that will help ensure good habits stick – and feel good too!
www.thesustainabilitysessions.co.uk or link in bio for tickets, but be quick, they’re limited and 1/3 of the ticket price goes to a different charity for each session 💚

An image of the legendary Bay Area Figurative drawing sessions that took place in the ‘50s. Our new digital initiative, From the Basement, highlights this special moment in history, now preserved through a group of photographs by Lincoln Yamaguchi in the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation Archives.
A neighbor of Theophilus Brown, Yamaguchi met Diebenkorn in the early ‘50s, and the painter hired Yamaguchi to photograph a few large, abstract paintings for an exhibition. While there, he witnessed the weekly drawing session from a live model, that night attended by David Park, Theophilus Brown, Nathan Oliveira, Paul Wonner, and Richard Diebenkorn.
For many years Yamaguchi’s identity remained lost to time, while a photograph from the night gained notoriety through reproduction requests. In 2014, when the Foundation was in the final stages of completing “Richard Diebenkorn: The Catalogue Raisonné,” staff members learned the photographer lived in Stockton, California, only a few hours from the Foundation’s offices. Continue their journey of discovery in the From the Basement feature on diebenkorn.org (link in bio).

Around 250 years apart, yet somehow...they compliment each other beautifully 🔮
Manipulation and distortion of the female form through fashion:
Left- extremely rare French court bodice, 1765-75, with a 21” waist, the sleeves set unnaturally far back, pushing the wearer’s shoulder blades together, thrusting her bosom forward (estimate £6,000-10,000)
Right- ‘Armadillo’ shoes from Alexander McQueen’s ‘Plato’s Atlantis’ collection, S/S 2010, turning the human foot into an alien-like claw (estimate £10,000-20,000)
These shoes have been on my fantasy auction wish-list for as long as I can remember. I KNEW I would meet them one day...🤓. And I have never in my life seen such an incredible court bodice- there are only 3 (I think) known examples existing in the world! I doubt I will ever see one again...
