The Shoot

The Shoot: Adventures in Lace

I was a big fan of the Dolce & Gabbana spring/summer 2015 collection. I loved the emphasis on lace, sheer fabrics, flowers and the colours black and red. I knew I had to do something like that myself and I stumbled upon this gorgeous Topshop dress in their Oxford Circus store and knew it was the perfect piece. Added with this beautiful floral crown from Topshop and a very old River Island belt that just perfectly encapsulated Dolce & Gabbana’s take on the Victoriana trend.

Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
