With this collection, I wanted to go back to the origins of Eustratia and create pieces that embody the contradictions which inspired me to start the label. Delicate lace and feminine silhouettes contrasted by harness straps and oversized hardware.

I don’t often feature shoots on here that I have not conceptualised myself, but I also seldom shoot in black and white, and thought these images were sufficiently different from anything I would normally post, to leave room for you to admire them and the lingerie, as well as whatever I decide to do with it next.
The set was shot as part of Alexander Bather’s “Night diary” exhibition last year and was arranged in collaboration with Vauhaus model agency, who also allowed their HQ to become the backdrop.
Some of you may remember, I released several bras with my Vanguard collection last year. I initially intended them to be worn more as tops but soon decided it would be better to make bottoms to go with them, so they can also be worn as lingerie, in a set.
I didn’t have much time to design before the shoot so I made two out of three styles on the day. Hazel had already ordered a set from me and had requested something that matched the bra with lots of straps, which I think I delivered. Lia wanted to wear a high waisted brief so just used the same fabrics and details as the bra and created something in that style. For the third set, I decided to make a thong for variety, without knowing who the model would be at the time.
I was quite pleased with how the came out for a first attempt, though I have now made adjustments and changed some of the details. I look forward to showing you the final versions in a photoshoot at some point soon.

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my friend Cassie’s graduate exhibition at the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester. A couple of days earlier we had been shopping and I picked up a long tunic-style skirt and some lace brogues from H&M, which I decided to incorporate into my outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever bought such inexpensive shoes before but they are beautiful and surprisingly comfy.

As someone who orders a lot of things online, I often have packaging lying around the house. Today I was getting ready to throw out some polystyrene, when I had a brain wave.
I had seen this picture on pinterest a few weeks ago and wanted to create something similar for myself, however, I wasn’t sure what they used for the snow or what I had that would give a similar effect.
I decided to free some of the polystyrene balls and see if they created a snow-like effect.
It looked satisfactory so I decided to pick out some jars and fill them up.
Then I added a tea light carefully, as it had to be lit first (it might be worth buying some long matches for these).
I then did the same with two larger jars and tied bits of grosgrain ribbon and lace round them.
The look of the jars changes slightly depending on what you wrap them with so try to choose something that matches or complements your decor.
