Javier Vallhonrat

At the moment I'm researching into circus themes for a photoshoot in late April and just wanted to share my appreciation for fashion photographer Javier Vallhonrat. He captures such a beautiful dreamlike quality to his images and I love his use of colour and texture.

spring/summer buys!

As the weather is getting warmer, I've recently added two new 'must-have' pieces to my wardrobe for spring and summer. The first is a button-front playsuit in a dusky pink colour, which has crisscross ties at the back so it can be worn fitted or loose. I love it for its versatility as it can be worn in the daytime with sandals; with tights and a cropped chunky knit jumper and military boots for a casual look or with black platforms for going out.

The second of my purchases was this soft coral pink dress with frill neck detailing and buttoned front. I love the colour and I will wear this in the day with sandals (and leggings) and for evening dinner dates.

A fresh start with space-age sixties

I haven't posted in such a long time due to deadlines and then I've slipped out of the habit! But enough of the excuses, I'm back to blog for good.
So since my last post I researched into space-age sixties fashion for a historical photoshoot. Taking inspiration from the futuristic 1960's designs from Andres Courreges, Paco Rabanne and Pierre Cardin, I photographed and styled the below shoot. I like the bright, futuristic effect of the images with the blue tint, but am currently experimenting with texture and saturation to give the images an authentic effect.
