Fred Butler recently served up an ASOS Hit with some customised parcel tape.  I now think she needs to do a take on the "Buy British" slogan and tape up "Buy Butler" all over the streets in some sort of guerilla shop campaign.  Incidentally you would also be buyiing British if you bought Butler.  Yup, from my initial postings of Butler's prop styling work to her dabblings in custom made one-off pieces, she's now a fully fledged accessories designer with stockists to boot!  Klever Kabiri, who have been basically buying up every one of my favourite jewellery designers have finally decided to stock Butler and she is now selling in the Marylebone and Covent Garden stores (no news of online yet) with a lovely window display to celebrate that fact.  Not that I would wish to heap stockists upon Butler who makes every piece with her own hands in her studio.  Half the fun of wearing a Fred Butler piece is knowing that "Made for You" feeling, as there is so much of Fred's personality in her pieces.

For Kabiri's Selfridges concession, the Pantone Yellow shade celebrations continue with a specially customised yellow and black headpiece that Fred made.

I know Diane's already posted these but Elisha Smith-Leverock's photography of Fred's A/W 09 collection which got New Gen support for the first time last season, take the as-always wondrous fantastical pieces to new dreamy heights…
