Gal's about Town - Jessie Ward

Name -Jessie Ward
Occupation - By day, video editor/director - by night, member of the band Talulah Does The Hula & sometimes DJ

Describe your personal style in 4 words- RocknRoll, Shape, Texture & Comfort
Biggest fashion influence- I'm obsessed with anything 60’s and French, so films like "A Woman is a Woman" or "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort" or singer’s like France Gall
Most coveted fashion item right now- Minidresses or Playsuits paired with anything studded and leather - though I can't afford anything like that! The most coveted thing I own is a tiger-print Shaheen wiggle dress made from
If your wardrobe/ personal style were an album, what album would it be? - At the moment, probably Blondie Parallel Lines or the soundtrack to the film Smashing Time:

Most trusty item in your wardrobe - My white & navy striped stretchy tunic top from Topshop - nice low-cut back :)

Best dressed/favourite look - Anyone who can do a modern take on classic 60’s so probably Zoey Deschanel. During the actual 60’s Anna Karina was amazing, I reckon Zoey is trying to be a modern-day Karina
Worst dressed/ least favourite look - Pussycat Dolls
Favourite fashion image - Audrey Hepburn in ‘Funny Face’, or that amazing photo from 1962, by the South African photographer Sam Haskins of a girl named Gill - it's on the cover of ‘The Last of the Shadow Puppets’ album...

I really must get rid of that - I can't really answer that because I'm a real packrat, I always figure I'll be able to use something again - especially now that I've got a sewing machine. I'm obsessed with up-cycling everything
I really must dig out - my Mom's dresses bought in Camden market at the height of the swinging 60’s, including a crocheted mini-dress. Sound’s awful but it's really cute
