Vanguard concept shoot

The Vanguard concept shoot images are here! I have been waiting for the full set to be completed before posting these as it was my favourite project so far this year and I wanted to show it off in full.

The team that help me bring this idea to life did an excellent job and they deserve every credit. Shooting on location can be challenging, especially when alternating between different settings and working with animals.

Photography, retouching, model direction: Toria Brightside

Models: Amber and Hazel @VAUHAUS and myself.

Make up: Laura Wilson

Hair and styling: me

The jewellery for the collection was made by Richard Ayres, who was also dog-handler at the shoot.

Special thanks to our driver Ben, who also looked after the dogs while we were shooting.

Extra special thanks to Eustratia and Vauhaus interns Lindsay and Lauren who facilitated and carried, set of smoke bombs and ran around holding them to get the right effect, fixed and pressed garments and helped out with the images.

We also really appreciate Barney’s owners bringing him down for the shoot.

The garments are available for sale, here.

We shot this over three different locations and by the time we got to the last one, we only had 5 minutes of daylight left but we managed to make it work and the images in the last set are some of my favourites.

The harness cami has so far emerged as the best-seller from this range and can be purchased with 20% off till midday on Wednesday.

I recently managed to put my workaholism aside in favour of some chill-out time. The weather has been quite warm recently but I was still lucky I managed to fit these photos in before the storm started!

Summer wedding

This weekend I attended my first summer wedding of the year, in a beautiful little village in Cheshire.

 

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t always wear black but it can be hard for me to find the perfect dress to suit my style for such things.

 

After a lot of looking around I decided to make myself something out of this water print fabric I bought last year.  I quite enjoyed making this and would be happy to make similar ones if anyone else finds themselves in a similar situation. summer wedding 2
