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.

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 -
