An update…


Thea Porter’s 1977 collection, photographed by David Seidner.

It’s been many moons since I’ve posted on here, but I have been very very busy…


In February 2015 an exhibition I curated on Thea Porter opened at the Fashion & Textile Museum in London: Thea Porter: 70s Bohemian Chic. At the same time, an accompanying monograph I wrote, with a foreword and afterword by Thea’s daughter Venetia Porter, was published by V & A Publications: Thea Porter: Bohemian Chic. Both were wonderful projects to work on, and have laid the foundation for my newest projects among them, a full-length documentary film on Thea.

I am constantly posting on Instagram (@laurakitty), which also feeds directly to my Tumblr. I’ve continued writing a column on Shrimpton Couture’s Curated all of my posts can be found here, but below are some direct links and photos from some of my favourite recent ones…
