One windy and stormy Sunday in winter 2013 me and Clare of Flax Emporium headed bravely upto Stanmer Park, Sussex, with our team, as this would form the location of our Autumn/ Winter photoshoot.
After the success of our Summer Carousel Collection and photoshoot as part of High Street Fashion Week London, we decided we couldn’t miss the opportunity to create a winter collection too.
Me and Clare sat down a few months ago to begin planning the outfits and jewellery. We spent hours on Pinterest browsing winter fashion (and getting distracted by pretty cake!), and started to sketch out our ideas. We wanted the collection to have a bit of a snow queen feel, and also evoke a winter woodland too.
Once decided Clare set work on the outfits and I set work on designing and making the jewellery. I wanted to create some oversized, stand out pieces as well as the more wearable, everyday items too. I also wanted to make sure my new festive designs also worked well as part of the collection too!
We had the photographer and her team booked, the lighting, the make up girl, the hair girl and the models booked, Nigel the dog was also ready and we were all set! Sadly we picked the stormiest weekend of the year in the south of England! Luckily we found a dis-used barn at Stanmer Park that we took cover in for the shoot.
See some of the photos from the shoot below, and you can see the full album on Facebook here.
