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.
Photographer Al Overdrive emailed me this morning to share this set of photos, taken about a year ago, backstage at the katzenjammer club, just after the fashion show.
It was the shortest Eustratia show ever, with the least amount of models, but there was certainly no lack of glamour.

And last but not least, myself. My years of modelling do come in handy when I’m a model short for a show!
As you all know I’m quite into latex fashion so I’ve decided to add a new, monthly feature that highlights what kind of latex I’m currently into.
At the moment I love harness details and I’ve been working on getting clearer product pictures of the harness style items I’ve already created for Eustratia.
Here are my top picks:
As a special treat, I’ve also decided to keep the sale on till Sunday to give everyone who gets paid on Friday an extra change at a bargain.
The featured products can be found here , here,here and here.
To give my customers a summer treat and help fund some exciting upcoming projects, I’ve decided to offer 20% off most of the products on my website for the next week.
I have gathered my top picks from the sale to help you with some suggestions:
I’d also love to hear what your favourite items in the sale are!
This week I’m finalising details for my show and Manchester fashion week and the awesome afterparty I’m throwing with my friends.
I’m also thinking about gemstone pendants, new hair styles, exaggerated silhouettes and beautiful creatures. Hopefully I should have another exciting show to announce soon!
