In Couture but I’m a Rebel

May is being without a doubt a crazy month for me, no time to blog is rather frustrating but I had to do a quick post on this, simply because I had to express how much I love this shoot in Vogue Paris May, it’s the clothes, styling, model and concept all combined.

As someone who has spent most of her 20’s dressed and influenced by the 1980’s I obviously appreciate the greatness of the punk movement and early 1980’s fashion in every shape and form, it was created by and aimed to rebels, such as  the one and only, Vivienne Westwood. I also do love what followed up, garments covered in gold and silver  sequins, pad shoulders, wild hair and list goes on.

This shoot has so many elements from that era, punk, rock & roll and glam and the beautiful Freja Beja Erichsen works each look so well, my favourite are Zuhair Murad’s gold and white feather cape and Margiela’s all in silver, sadly I wasn’t mad on the cover, purely because when I think of couture, punk and rebels I have a more fierce cover image in mind.

Vogue Paris May…you rocked this month though.

Bright & Fun January

It’s already January and a bit of a depressing month for some,  no more exciting  shopping trips in search of  the perfect  dress for  Christmas parties or just a great outfit for a big night out on NYE.

Shops displayed endless options of gold and silver dresses, sequins, beads and basically all fabulous things before and during the festivities season so, what’s next? What trend will cheer us all up and beat these January Blues?

Some of the trends for SS13 are white, black, bright colours, stripes and optical prints and sheer luxe. I did this shoot inspired by my mood in January, as the first month of 2013 to me it means excitement, happiness and positive vibes. I mixed monochrome with bright yellow, fun prints and bold shapes, there are also some sheer pieces.

Jacqueline Dumont, my lovely model, was great in this shoot and she really rocked each look. These outfits represent exactly  how I feel in this glorious beginning of the year!
