Stage Fright

Today I did my first ever fashion haul. It was so scary talking to the camera and can't physically bring myself to watch it fully! Hopefully they'll get better when I get used to talking to myself out loud alone....
Hope you enjoy :)

Parrot Print Pow

You will not believe my joy I've finally found a playsuit that's not too crotchy, long, tight, or boring....!
It's got a backless detail with a cool tropical parrot print all over. It's loose fitting for those steaks I like to consume and I've teamed it with some clash print red gingham shoes. 

Today I'm wearing: Parrot Print ASOS playsuit, Irregular Choice gingham print bow wedges, ASOS gold cuffs, and ASOS orange clutch.
....Woah I'm a bit ASOSed up today!

Photo Shoot: Wonderland Tea Party

Photographer :: Sarina Scheepers
Model :: Becky @ Oxygen Model Management 
MUA :: Justyna Ilczuk

 Assistant :: Monique Lodewyks

Last Sunday I was extremely lucky to yet again work with the fabulous team above. It's truly exhilarating to watch ideas come together to make beautiful images. The shoot's theme was a whimsical tea party but I felt it was important to keep it current by incorporating this season's biggest trends including clash prints, cut out dresses, pastels and pretty-preppy. It took place last Sunday, despite the rain, in a stunning rose garden at Morden Hall Park. 

Key words: tea party, pretty, pastels, candy, sweet, dreamy, bubbles, roses, nature, fresh, candy floss, picnics, pure, floral, soft, musing, charming, bliss

The best thing: this shoot is being published in hot online Polish magazine Con Fashion! AND one of the images is already published in VOGUE ITALIA'S Website Click Here. These opportunities wouldn't be real if it weren't for the super talented Sarina Scheepers. She not only does awesome fashion but also weddings and babies if you ever require her services :)

Brighton Fashion Week 2012

Last week I skipped the Jubilee celebrations and hopped over to Brighton for a several days to catch Brighton Fashion Week. It was literally amazing - Brighton is brimming with huge up and coming talent and their sense for fashion is so innovative and fresh. This in turn attracted some big fashion names to the event and whole thing was booming. 
Here's some of the outfits I wore for during the week:

The week started with the Brighton Frocks Show which presented a mix of designers all dedicated in communicating their avant-garde sensibility towards popular culture and current affairs through their garments. My favourite show was the Zeitgeist show the following day which took us on a journey to the next level in terms of fashion and here's some of my favourites: 

Karin Wuthrich had a gorgeous collection with a distinct link to nature in the structural pieces which had an almost insect casing type feel to it. Clean cuts and simple colours, the silhouettes were very current.

Below is the trailer before Jess Eaton's Collection the Second Roadkill Couture for EatonNott which explains her art-fashion work. I'd been so excited about this collection and it certainly did not disappoint. Think horse tails hanging from models' necks, beautiful buttflies sculpted from pigeon wings, swans wings gracing silk evening gowns and lots of fur....

Joey Bevan hosted the weekend of BFW and we also got to see his amazing SS12 collection - another one of my favourites, I want this jacket!

I literally took zillions of photos and videos - too much for one blogpost... You can find more on my facebook page, click here.
