I discovered Pieter Hugo this week...I am sure that I have seen these images before somewhere.
I love them...they are raw with honesty, and truly capture the reality of Africa.

This is the First look Ready for sale, I will be putting some of the Gypsy Love collection in a new shop in brick lane called Laundrette..the are a few more pieces yet, but this is the first one, and I feel pretty happy about adding in the belt,I think it gives the Tito Dress a little added value:))
p.s note the new branding...R_A is the ofspring of riyka, for easier and more casual pieces, more info will be on the website in April

its just me

I dont want to seem vain, but I really like these images that a very nice photograher named Modi Bovicelli took of me last year when we where taking some test shots for the Gypsy Love collection...I was just cleaning up my files when I found these.
its me looks like circa 78-79 in my favorite leggings, Take note that the pictures are very blurry, but you can always see my signature wide smile in all of them..
