Geometrics! (BEHIND THE SCENES)

Last week I creatively directed a shoot for CONKER Magazine’s first in-print magazine. I wanted the shoot to be based around geometrics: bold colours and interesting patterns. The idea took hold as a link to the idea that people do not fit in boxes and that we all come in many shapes, sizes and shades!…

Styling 70s theme Editorial for Birdlessly: ‘Sister Golden Hair’.

This editorial has been a little while in the making. It’s fairly simplistic, and I was challenged with limited resources, luckily HMUA Kitty Noofah had lots of ribbon available for us to experiment with.

Similarly to the Modern-Retro shoot the day before, I only had a few days to organise clothing for this shoot. I pulled clothing from new designer Marianne Auvinet Gould, whose pieces reflect a ‘rocker’ aesthetic whilst retaining an ‘urban elegance’.

Pakistani Fashion: Intersectional Month Sept/Oct 2015.

I’ve recently noticed that Fashion culture is beginning to favour other cultural styles: take the Dolce and Gabbana Hijab and Abaya collection for example.
