A Modern Fairytale

A Modern Fairytale

Phew.. Its been a crazy few weeks over here, hope you all are having a great start to 2018 too!

I teamed up with super talented Katie McMillan Photo again last weekend to create a modern day fairytale shoot, yes that’s right sound just as magical as the title. I have been dreaming about doing avant grade shoot for ages, especially when I could use my designs to make it happen. I had two looks that I wanted to use, a dark side which could only be described as the dark prince charming and the other look was very frosty like the ice queen.

The location of the shoot was held at Druids Temple near Masham, North Yorkshire – The perfect eerie setting

The whole look couldn’t of come together without this dream team

Workroom Vibes

Workroom Vibes

Rolling on into 2018 with a great first week back in the workroom, I’ve been busy creating patterns and samples for bespoke orders. It’s exciting discussing design ideas and possible fabrics with customers but its absolutely magical when you can start to create the actual garment and see it come to life and working with sparkly sequin fabrics whats not to love.

I’ve also been spending time re-arranging and tidying my workroom along with some banging tunes of course, nothing better than a good clear space to get creative though it doesn’t stay clear for long! Sprucing up my inspiration wall has been fun too, I love to start the year by starting blank and filling it with ideas and positivity over the year, it’s very satisfying how colourful it can get.  I would highly recommend clearing a little wall space for yourself and get creative! It could be anywhere your bedroom, above your desk, even the fridge.. just fill it full of wonderful pictures, memories, colour swatches, fairy lights, adventure planning – ANYTHING. Its guaranteed to make you smile.

So that’s my first proper week back in the workroom – pretty dam sweet if you ask me.

My handmade tulle floor length cape customised with ‘ Fall In Love Whenever You Can’ in pink glitter on the back looks just devine alongside the theme of this shoot and can you guess which film the quote is from?

Watch this space as I will be making more of these capes and they will be ready to order real soon!
