This is how we do it: Mimi Wade

East London’s a tricky place to be right now, one can barely move without tripping over their jaw upon seeing designer Mimi Wade, the blue-haired bombshell tottering around in her Buffaloes.

This is how we do it i-D: Rhys James Hailing from the ultra-bohemian town of Stroud in Gloucestershire, musician Rhys James has more magic in his fingertips than Uri Geller (and that’s saying something)!

'On first meeting, one assumes he is slightly vanilla, blatantly in a band, wears crotch hugging jeans and has an inflatable ego in his front pocket, but one would be wrong.'

My favourite boy, MR LOUIE BANKS! for i-D online....

So whats to say about Louie, anyone that knows me knows how much I love Louie Banks, I love being with him, I love working with him...and i love talking about him!  The i-D piece written by Harriet Verney describes him to a T.

'A scatty, fire-breathing Brighton kid and son of a human cannonball'......
'This bow-legged, buffalo wearing, snapper’s quest for photographic perfection is all over the shots for This Is How We Do It. In whatever weird, warped and wonderful way Louie chooses to interpret his subjects, he never fails to produce a picture that can stop one’s head fitting through a door.'

- That's just for starters.
