I’m so happy to tell you that I have some very cool new Spotding Closet Films lined up for you. Today I will share the 10th Spotding Closet in my series of films, which is something that I have been passionate about ever since I started blogging in 2009. The concept is much more shaped now, but pretty much the same ” inspiring womens’ closets from around the world”. I have created a little production team who help me put these fashion stories together and that makes things a lot more easy. I’m surrounded by so many talented and beautiful women from many different nationalities and backgrounds. I love creating these personal fashion films and get to know their stories. I am too curious to stop doing this, it’s pure passion!
This Spotding Closet Film features Danish designer Tatiana Andersen Camre, whom I contacted because I think she is an interesting character and a talented designer. I have been to her home and design studio in East London, Dalston. I hope you are as excited to see this as I am. Enjoy!

I am happy to share a Spotding Closet film with you before the New Year. My friend Cassy Britton, who is a known DJ & Producer visited me in London back in October. Cassy was going vintage shopping in Soho, where she wanted to find the right outfit for her DJ Ibiza-closing gig. I followed, and filmed her in the glorious vintage shop Lucy & Disguise in Lexington Street, where she tried on different outfits. In the film Cassy talks about her style, shopping routines and favorite shop in Paris. Do you want some great style inspiration – watch it now! The music in the film is Cassy’s own production. In 2014 Cassy will be playing all over the world, so I am sure you will catch her somewhere. See her upcoming gigs HERE.
Any serious feedback on my films are appreciated – Thank you for watching! All the best Fiona Jane
I fell in love with this gorgeous vintage coat at Brick Lane Market on Sunday.. I wish I would have bought it, although I was thinking that I should buy Spring/Summer clothes instead of winter clothes. It is so cold in London these days so it would have been very convenient to have it. My hair is getting long again you see? it’s been a year since I cut it short, remember? Time goes by so quick, its really scary! Last week I got a new fringe, which I’m really happy about, and here I’m wearing my favorite hat at the moment. I feel a bit like Edie Sedgwich which also is one of my style icons. x
Just came back from Somerset House where we have prepared the Exhibition for London Fashion Week. There is a Scandinavian area where I will be with Berthrams with our brands Stine Goya and Anne Sofie Madsen till Tuesday. During Copenhagen Fashion Week we made this film with Anne Sofie Madsen and Maria Black. More backstage pictures on its way. Hope you like it? x x
During Copenhagen Fashion Week last week, I teamed up with Christina from Berthram’s, which is a UK based sales & brand agency. In this video I meet the lovely designer Stine Goya and amongst others she tells about her inspiration for her AW13 collection. I hope you like it? Now I’m off to bed after a long week, have fun kids! x

I am happy to present Spotding TV and the next Spotding Closet, which is my beautiful friend Elise Haugslett. I had a lovely day filming her in her apartment in Dalston, London just before Christmas. She really knows her style and I’m very inspired, so thanks Elise! Take a break and enjoy this cool closet! Please comment with some feedback and that will make my day! xx Fiona
As promised you have here “Spotding Closet” with Chloe Nørgaard, part 2. I had so much content with Chloe, and I didn’t want to through anything away, so I made a second part with her. In this part she talks about her scrapbooks, tattoos, shoes and her dj’ing. I enjoyed watching Chloé and listen to her small funny stories! Let me know what you think? (the comments fields works again!!)
