Sistersaurus for Material Girl


I am proud to post the final shots from my shoot for my favourite magazine - Material Girl's Winter issue which is available to purchase NOW! I think going to the zoo is the most fun you can possibly have on a shoot and we had an awesome time in sunny Blackpool :) We decided on a Geeky sisters day out theme and I borrowed garments from the amazing Hannah Harrison, Lily Stodel and Claire Rushby. Inspiration came from Wes Anderson's films and Venetia Scott's beautiful styling and photography. Sophie and Evie were brilliant models and performed an amazing piggyback pose which was a lot more difficult than it appears!

Irish Times - The Story of WHY?

I recently styled a commercial for the Irish Times newspaper which is currently running on TV and in cinemas in Ireland. The story is a Mini Odyssey of the history of The Irish Times Newspaper. This involves an inquisitive journalist who goes on an adventure through his office wall (John Malkovich style) encountering many different scenarios along the way. High point was dressing the English, Irish and Scotsman and filming the riot scene with real molotov cocktails.

For more information about the film and the Irish Times see the below link;

Liliyang AW2012 Look Book

I was excited to be asked to style the AW look book for Luxury accessory brand Liliyang London. The brief was fairytale and the setting - a woods full of bluebells on a rainy day in the Kent countryside. I loaned garments from designer Julie Yeung who was selected by VOGUE Italia as a New Talent in October 2011, 'Julie Yeung is a luxury womenswear designer who constantly seeks to fuse haute couture craftsmanship with modern innovation to achieve a contemporary and refined aesthetic within her designs.' I knew that the beautiful jewel colored silks Julie used and the elegant cut of the clothing would be a perfect backdrop to the luxuriousness of the Liliyang bags. The yellow dress also reminded me of Snow White and the red hooded outfit made our model Asa into a high fashion red riding hood. I also need to mention Asa is an illustrator and has recently had her wall paper featured in Vogue -

Here are my favourite shots from our editorial Motherland which I am very proud to say has been featured on Pet Fan Club - Material Girls blog. We went to Helen's hometown of Bury on the windiest day of the year but had a really fun day climbing hills and getting washed up by the river. I loaned the beautiful garments from London designer Jaqueline Loekito - who has worked with my favourite designers Meadham Kirchoff and is destined for greatness.

She's a Wildflower

Final shots from our test with the gorgeous Daiana @ FM. We travelled to RS Wisley for a fun day in the sun using their amazing floral displays as backdrops. I borrowed garments from Sophie Davison featured in the 2nd -6th shots and Raffaelle Ascione  (7th-15th) both of which are rising stars in the fashion world and names to look out for. Highlight of the day was using Temi's portable changing booth and having afternoon tea at the cafe, low point was trying to dissemble the pop up booth afterwards!

In God we trust

Here are my favourite pics from our trailer trash themed shoot starring the beautiful Becca Horn who braved the freezing conditions, various pervy onlookers and 'Stinkbob' the cat in order to deliver these beautiful shots by Xanthe. Inspiration for the looks came from film True Romance and everyones favourite good girl gone bad Britney Spears. I borrowed several garments from amazing label - Fairground who have the best prints I have seen and also the best named collections including 'Dont tell Mom the baby sitters dead' and Honey I shrunk the kids' see more of their amazing wares here -

We recently heard that the full story will be printed in Noctis' summer edition "Coming of age' Whipeee!
