QUOTED: Where did all the fashion editors go?

PUBLISHED: AOL's MyDaily / Huffington Post UK, July 6, 2011

I was quoted in reference to fashion editors moving into the realm of online retail. It reads:

Fashion editors are uniquely placed to shift goods in a retail world where conversation and engagement trump the hard sell, agrees WGSN's marketing and digital editor Rachel Arthur. "Journalists have always been instrumental in selling the best products to consumers, but they've never had the capacity to gain from it in any real sense" she explains.

QUOTED: Going, going, gone... Mayhem at H&M for Lanvin

PUBLISHED: AOL's MyDaily, November 23, 2010

I was quoted in reference to the launch of the Lanvin for H&M collection. It reads:

MyDaily's eyewitness on the ground at London's Oxford Circus flagship reports that queues are snaking right around the store, taking an hour to get to the goods. Meanwhile online shoppers have descended onto the H&M shopping site, and our numerous attempts to get onto it have resulted in a crash (probably not a bad thing for our wallets). But sharp elbows, technical glitches and lengthy queues haven't dampened the mood.

"It's utter chaos" fashion journalist and shopping aficionado Rachel Arthur told us, "but there's such a fantastic atmosphere – you've got a 10 minute slot to shop, kind of like Supermarket Sweep."

My images of shoppers at the event (including myself) were also used.
