The latex swing skirt is one of the most wearable items from the Eustratia SS 14 collection and I wanted to incorporate it into a more casual daytime outfit as an example.
The outfits I’ve featured on here have been predominantly black so I chose the translucent pink skirt, firstly to add a bit of colour and secondly because I love the way you can see the legs silhouetted beneath it.
I’ve always loved combining textures and I think faux fur/feathers look great with latex or patent leather.
Unfortunately by the time I got round to photographing the outfit it had started to rain so you will have to excuse my hair.

I’ve admired Gary Crozier‘s doll-like portraits for some years, since I was first asked to collaborate on a shoot with him. We have since made contact but didn’t manage to arrange anything so it was a nice surprise to get a message from him, nearly 2 years later, saying he was coming to Manchester and would like to shoot.
I thought his style would lend it’s self well to my new lingerie range, Persephone, which features a mixture of light and dark, delicate and edgy designs.
We shot in my studio and I invited 2 of my favourite girls to join in, Amber and Hannah. If you follow my work you should already be able to recognise them.
We had our hair tied back during the shoot and at the end Gary took close up pictures of twisted sections of our hair, which he then used to create the crazy, elaborate hairstyles you see in the pictures.
I’m really pleased with the results, I think Gary did a great job with the background and making each model look like an individual character. I really think these would make a good post card set. If anyone fancies themselves as a Gary Crozier doll, you can get a quote and some info here.
