WS AW12 Outdoor Photoshoot

Following on from the studio shoot a few weeks ago it was time to head outdoors for Whispering Smith 'Brave Soul' AW12. The shoot took place in Colne, such a lovely location out in the countryside which fitted in great with the heritage look to the collection. I was working with the Menswear range following on from the studio shoot styling the outfits, this proved to be much more of a challenge outdoors! We managed to avoid the rain for the duration of the day and even had abit of sunshine!! Once again we somehow were able to fit in the Menswear and Ladieswear collections alongside each other finishing in one day....looking fab!! Here's a few sneaky pics from behind the scenes....enjoy! <3

WS AW12 Studio Shoot

The Whispering Smith Brave Soul AW12 shoot took place at our head office studio in Manchester. I was working alongside the mens and ladieswear but actually styled all the outfits for menswear, which involved quite a lot of pre-planning and lots and lots of clothes!! Next we will be shooting outdoors so keep an eye out for a few sneaky pics on my next post.

Marni for H&M

Pictures from Marie Claire <3
Exciting times as Marni's new SS12 collection for H&M hit the stores and online on Thursday with all the tell tale elements of a mainstream Marni collection. Bright mix and match colours work together with amazing bold prints. I love the tribal feel along with the chunky jewellery which all looks great layered up together. The illustrations are really cute too and the sequin collars which I think are my favourite out of the accessories! <3 So who managed to get there hands on a piece of this FAB collection?! <3

Mary Katrantzou #LFW

Pics from
Love, love, LOVE this fab AW12 collection by Mary Katrantzou which made an appearance yesterday at London Fashion Week. The eye-catching bold over-sized prints and colour blocking draws you in with an abstract feel, moving on from her previous season. I love the mix of tough looking structured pieces along with the softer flowing silks and chiffons. Check the LFW webiste for more info/catwalk videos.
 Already looking forward to the next collection! <3

I love that this collection came together through friendship...two friends working together to create 'laid-back luxurious style' It has a great bohemian feel about it, mixed with the bright prints giving a bold edge.

A collection based on 'African and Japanese inspired themes with an eclectic mix of styles' Colourful prints/graphics along with a modern urban look.

A graduate from Northumbria University with a collection inspired by the fourties and fifties. Using a 'zero-waste' concept to pattern this collection! <3

'50's ladylike charm, a sinister gothic twist with sultry burlesque styling and kitch glamour to create a unique, directional style. To be disturbing...but oh so pretty' They also sell popular meswear range Bang Bang Scribble.

Vintage prints and sixties influences...tea dresses, high waisted shorts and sun-dresses. I love this collection! <3
