I can finally share the lookbook images from my most recent Eustratia collection, Persephone. Persephone is my first lingerie range and I’m really pleased with it, I think all the outfits are equal, despite their differences and I really couldn’t choose a favourite. I chose the name to reflect the half dark, half light element or range and the natural influences that occur throughout.
This shoot was brought together by an amazing team and I’m very lucky to have had them all on board, especially since I pulled the shoot together in a short amount of time.

Some styles are already available to purchase on the site and the gallery can be viewed here.
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.
