It is a delight to finally spill the beans on this shoot..

In June I hosted and directed a gorgeous Bohemian flavour photo-shoot.

Based on the trends from London Fashion Week I attended in February.

With Fashion Blogger Lisa Leung of Straight Off The Catwalk.

London Fashion Week ultimately inspired me to capture the best on the runway and create a photo-shoot to showcase my new trending pieces in my next collection.

I wanted to go back to my home city; London and create something special there!

I have to say it was one of the hardest creative shoots I have worked on. 

It took determination, and patience which are characteristics I am ultimately grateful to my mother for.

So many doors closed but I am glad it managed to go ahead, with help from creative greats in the industry it was a success it has already featured in two magazines and a  small article and special fashion feature is coming out in a huge reputable wedding magazine next month (spoilers).

Here are the beautiful shots from the day taken by : Erik Meijer Photography.

We were influenced by the 1970s with a hint of Marsala red in the colour palette. this emphasised the warmth and serenity of the late hippy era and set the tone for a relaxed ecclectic look..

We were so honoured to meet and work alongside Elizabeth Solaru of Elizabeth's Cake Emporium. So thrilled to have had Elizabeth design this Haute couture cake with hundreds of flowers inside. The cake was presented opened up to showcase the "flower power".

Decadent and detailed as are all of Elizabeth's creations...
