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.



Bubble Pop Sunset

I’m delighted to be able to share with you, the first shoot of the summer and my latest collaboration with Vauhaus.

The wardrobe is from the reflections collection as well as some extra pieces I made for a fashion show at Regress back in March. The unicorn necklaces are part of an upcoming Eustratia range due to be released very soon!

41I was adamant we needed the clouds and sunset in the background so Toria directed us to the perfect roof carp park. As we got to the top however, the fire alarm started to go off and we narrowly avoided having to leave. I’m so glad we didn’t though as we manged to get these amazing images.

Maverick models

A few months ago I lent some garments to Manchester based model agency, Maverick models. They were used for the agencies’ new promo shoot, shot in the south of France as well as the vampire themed fashion show that opened Sheffield fashion week. There is a video of the shoot here and the fashion show here.

A selection of my favourite images from the shoot.
