Team profile: Ellie Tobin

Who: Ellie Tobin
Role: Hair and make-up artist

Ellie and I have known each other for ten years. Along with Frances (my photographer, more to come on her later) we studied together at Camberwell College of Arts. Since then we've all been off on various different escapades before ending up working together again.

Ellie has consulted for MAC cosmetics and worked with a complete smorgasbord of clients, from band AlunaGeorge, to the Observer, Marie Claire, Boots and Magnum to Natwest, with a forthcoming project for Sky Living in the new year. She recently beautified Hayley Atwell & Ruth Wilson for the recent British Independent Film Awards and has worked with me on three seasons (see above, hard at work on our AW11 shoot) with plenty more to come, I hope!

Eek, silence...

Sorry for the utter radio silence lately, dear readers. Things have been a little hectic since the Vogue coverage. Add to that the fact that I'm working like the clappers on the AW12 collection, we have a brand new stockist (from February - more to come on that...) AND that I recently became an aunt, well - there's barely been time to breathe, let alone anything else!

But over the next couple of weeks I am going to do a profile piece on each member of my brilliant team. You can find out a little bit about each of the people without whom these collections wouldn't make it out into the public domain. I hope you enjoy it.
