3 cheers for the british punk witch

Oh my goodness.  Emma Cook, amazing Emma!  I've been following her collections since I saw her shout-out in Sample (published by Phaidon) and have pretty much loved every one.  But this one, reach into my heart and pull out all that witchy fringy encrusted lacey goodness!  I just think that these are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen, in any art form.  This level of elaborateness is something that I was steered away from in school and so somehow feel is "bad," but look at Emma go!  She just wallows in it!  She just gets down in all those organic edges and beads on stars on lace and swims through it!
