Every so often, I feel compelled to create some images of my own. It could be to experiment with a new hair or makeup look, find the right setting for a new product I’ve created, or bring to life an image that popped into my head.
This time it was “all of the above” and I shot a couple of images featuring my “Freya” crop top, moth necklace and butterfly head piece.
I also shot a new image for the “moth girl” t-shirt, as the previous one didn’t really inspire me.
I continued the set with a set featuring my dog, Charlie, which I will post next time.

After an amazing weekend showcasing my spring collection and partying with my friends I’m starting to work on the winter range and the next Eustratia fashion show at the German fetish ball in Berlin.
I’m researching cocoons, moths, flowers, dark aesthetics and curiosities. I’m also in love with my new shoes, though they seem to be a bit big for me.
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!
This week, I’m entering a time of refinement. I’m going to be making changes to a few aspects of my life, including my online presence.
At the moment I’m into sheer black garments, fabric manipulation, gemstone rings and 3D creature art.
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.
