Those who follow my work will already be familiar with the Opulence collection that has been showcased that the Manchester Alternative and burlesque fair as well as London fetish weekend as part of the Avalonia fashion show. There is also a wonderful set of photobooth images by Tigz Rice featuring the outfits which can be viewed here.
The official Opulence look book images were shot by the talented Katelizabeth photography who did a great job of realising my vision and adding her own touch without upsetting the balance of the overall feel.
Models Sevensin & Biomechanina
I’m really pleased with how it all turned out. I was originally worried the weather might ruin it for us and I must admit it was a rather muddy, and at times cold, experience but luckily this doesn’t show in the pictures. I had a great team that made every effort to get the best possible results and if any one of them didn’t believe in the project it wouldn’t have been possible.
I’d like to add a special thanks to Charlotte who isn’t credited as part of the creative team but really played a big part by assisting with pretty much everything and assuring the models’ safe passage to and from the set. She also took some behind the scenes footage which I hope to be able to include in a future post.
An insight into this collection and the influences behind it were published in the last issue of Rebelicious magazine which you can view online here and is also available for free download.

Eustratia’s blog from when we worked together back in 2012 – you wouldn’t think it was raining! Loved this 😀
Love this! The clothes are amazing, the styling and the hint of purple. I wish I had the hair of the dark haired model and the unicorn skirt. Love, Sara xx
Thanks Sara, everyone loves Jess’s hair! The unicorn skirt has been added to the store now if you’d like to have a look http://www.eustratia.co.uk/onlinestore/prod_2383256-Unicorn-skirt.html
