Did an amazing test, which I am super excited about with Fashion and Celebrity Photographer John Wright. The theme was ‘Marie Antoinette’ does lingerie. Think feathers, lace, frills, flowers, big wigs and powdered faces. Sam Norman did an incredible job on the hair and make up, creating her own wigtastic masterpieces.
I sourced lingerie on loan from the beautiful Bordello picking out all their key vintage inspired pieces in soft pastels and silks. The vintage looking jewellery was loaned from The Black Pearl as well as teaming this up with a little from Topshop – who seemed to have so much perfect pieces to supplement. The gorgeous shoes were purchased from Irregular Choice – OMG I want a pair of those, they are just perfect!
I then worked on sourcing plentiful, ribbon, lace, feathers, fans and masquerades.
An amazing shoot and a pleasure to work on, I can’t wait to post the final images!
I recently went to NYC, for the first time (I know, tell me about it) to celebrate my 30th Birthday. Had an amazing time and wanted to share a few piccies. Delved into several vintage and thrift stores, which sadly proved to be not as enticing and fruitful as I had hoped. I did pick up a couple of pieces though, a original 1960’s sailor dress with white rounded collar and a 1970’s spotty starburst tea dress. I do however love that city!
A few recommendations:
The Fantastic Ace Hotel we stayed at
Where my beautiful dresses came from Dusty Buttons
The best pizza! John’s Pizza
Great bead stall on the weekend on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, picked up some beautiful charms Brooklyn Beads
Great vintage/thrift store in the heart of Manhatten Cheap Jacks
I was commissioned by London’s prestigious Mayfair Hotel to dress one of their suites, as well as style models for the new Mayfair Film Club and the Summer campaign. More images to follow, but here is model Freya Berry lapping up the sunshine in Berkeley Square.
Hair and Make Up was by the lovely Elizabeth Clare.

These are some sneaky previews of a test shoot I worked on with Photographer Oli Kellett. We used my regular haunt Chase 55 prop house over in Acton as a location, in exchange of sourcing props from them! Good deal! Clothes were mainly sourced as vintage to enable a unique look. These are all being worked on still so more to follow. Worked with Hannah on hair and make up to create these quirky characters.
The theme of the shoot was awkward office workers, a kind of kooky character portrait!
