Fitting with Gareth Pugh

Today I had another fitting for the coat that is being designed for the tour by Gareth Pugh. I arrived at his studio in East London to find three members of his team actually weaving the fabric for the piece out of meters and meters of green ribbon. Gareth fitted the toile made from Calico and I watched fascinated, as the fabric grew before my eyes under the nimble fingers of his talented team. It should be ready for me to sport for the dates at the Tate Modern.
