Behind the scenes…

We we did it… I had the most fun day on Sunday, Everyone worked their socks off and I was so proud and grateful for the amazing team I had on board… It was chilled and relaxed and yet everyone stayed focus and gave 110% A few little thank yous… I was so excited the amazing Maximilian Hetherington agreed to come on board and be our photographer for the day, please check out his other work, he’s a bit good like! The amazingly talented Tatum Isaacs from Iris hair for 1, allowing us to use her beautiful studio as a base for all the prep and secondly for understanding my vision and creating some amazing hair styles. The beautiful Naomi Lake for doing all the makeup… wow, she did the most amazing job. Please check out all her other work on her website, I can’t recommend her enough! Of course there wouldnt have been a shoot at all with out my incredibly stunning models Amber Y, Emily T and Naomi H…. you girls were sensational… I’d like to point out none of these stunners professionally model, and yet their attitude and presence infront of the camera were sensational! I also need to thank The Kings Theatre, Who allowed us to go off, do our own thing, clamber on the furniture and run overtime! Oh and also gave us some amazing backstage tours!! Throughout the shoot, and to fill the hole till the final shots arrive, I decided to make a short behind the scenes film from the day… you can see it below… I didnt shoot everything because I want some suprises when the photos are here, but it should give you a feel for what was a brilliant shoot! Finally I’d like to thank Helena from Sassy World for being a star last minute and trying to help me source an extra model, Sassy World is one for you colourful folk out there, please visit her blog/website, talented lady right there! So, enough of the chatting, lets...

Treasures & Trims…

I am so excited to share my recent finds with you… I cant wait to use them… Recently I was in Leeds for my little bro’s graduation and after a celebratory lunch we strolled back through the city, past the beautiful corn exchange and through the famous Kirkgate Market… Out the other side we stumbled upon a collection of outside stalls and with the sun beating down on us we strolled through the aisles. I was in awe of all the sari stalls and was slowing the group down when my love spotted an indian lace stall that he thought I should check out…. wow. The stall has boxes upon boxes of trims, trims and embroidered lovliness… I unfortunately had zero money on me, but after a kind temporary loan from the awesome Mumma Lo I indulged…. What was most surprising was the price, everything was so cheap!! Compared to what you’d pay for the equilivant down here, the things were more then half what I would have expected to pay! I was in heaven! There were lots that were too much for me.. anything pink and turquoise was a definite no no, but there was so much! I brought loads of sequinned trims and also some beautiful laces but what was really exciting were these amazing detailed back pieces? I’m not sure what they are, but that’s what I’m going to use them for, I want to make a couple of simple kimonos to wear with the lingerie collection which I’ve finally booked in! Yay! Will share a little post tomorrow about my...
