G3 magazine feature

Last month I was contacted by singer/song writer Laura Steel who had been invited in as G3 mag‘s November issue guest editor. She was looking for designers for her fashion feature and wanted to focus on independent female designers who are making it on their own which is an idea that really appealed to me.

They ended up using two of my outfits in a double page spread. I think the image and the clothes look great but was slightly disappointed to see that the blurbs for Eustratia (my label) and Andrea Billard had been printed the wrong way round so people who don’t read the the whole thing and realise it sounds wrong are going to end up looking for underwear and visiting a latex site and vice versa.

 

 

 

 

Latex bras

The second set from my accessories project with Jennifer Byron features bras and hair flowers/bows as well as perspex cameos. I’m quite pleased with the way the hair and make up came out. Originally there were just going to be for products shots but I’m now using a couple of them for magazine submissions and one on a flyer for Bird’s yard.

Hair board

I had to go through my photobooth pics today to find an inspirational image from my winter collection shoot next week. I didn’t manage to find the specific image I had in mind but looking through the pictures reminded me of a few interesting hairstyles I had forgotten. I have compiled a board of my favourites and plan on putting together a better version at the end of the year with a full range of 2011 styles.

TOPSHOP surprise!

Topshop hasn’t always been at the top of my list of shopping destinations but this season I could probably replenish my whole wardrobe from there. I decided to compile a board of my favourites.
