Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Gabby Young, a fantastic musician who is hitting international headlines! We met at Gabby’s agents house and were greeted by the most tasty croissants smothered in jam with endless cups of tea. I opened my suitcase of jackets and dresses and I think Gabby fell in love with each and every one of them; she shares my love of cuffs, collars and bustles so it was the perfect match!
‘Dressing up’ is an essential part of Gabby’s stage presence. I had the pleasure of going to the Barbican to watch Gabby and the Other Animals perform – she has quite a crew! A ten pieces brass band, piano man, drummer, guitarist – the works!
A few weeks ago Gabby jetted of on her world tour, one of my frock coats packed in her suitcase and I hear it has been on a photoshoot in Japan…nice work Gabby – I can not wait to see the pictures! She is an inspirational young musician who I really look forward to working with… gabbyyoungandotheranimals.com
