come out & play test shoot...x

This summer I'm having my own love affair with sugar almond brights, iridescent textures and conversational details.

When friend & photographer Emma Woolrych approached me about a London test, I jumped at the chance and started daydreaming clashing prints. The spring summer catwalks were a bag lady mismatch of tropicana florals, graffiti prints and ornate geometrics, all thrown together with pastel washes and neon highlights.  A vintage hoarders dream...

For the shoot I wanted to educate myself on new and emerging talent, therefore headed to Blow PR http://www.blow.co.uk/, a boutique mecca for innovative talent. I took to the rails at Blow like a shopaholic in a sample sale...I pulled pencil drawing prints from Saffron Knight, super eccentric peplums from Fam Irvoll and luckily bagged (opps I mean pulled) a trophy jacket from Soojin Lee. On leaving I spied some Bug embellished accessories by Sorapol and with a little begging (me) and cool aloofness (Danni, Blow agent) I got the pieces.

As a high street girl I wanted to mix the pieces back with affordable trend staples.  I did a Neon raid at H&M, a shoe haul at Topshop and Zara and then headed to Oasis for pastel separates.

Below are some sneak peek behind the scenes pics and the Final Edit...let me know your thoughts...x
