The September issue The Shoot

The Editorial Shoot: The Roaring 20’s

A big theme for this season’s ‘The September Issue’ is a focus on the different fashion eras that I will be covering this season. And a fashion era that is popping up throughout the runways is the 1920’s. 

In a way it’s incredibly cyclical that the twenties are back in fashion as it mirrors so much of our own experience this year. We are also coming out of a big pandemic, eager to return to normalcy and enjoy life once more. 

But, I didn’t just want to give an absolute homage to the era, but give it a modern twist. This was done by layering slip dresses to create new lines and juxtapositions. It was about taking oversized long wool coats, modern accessories and high heels into the mix. 

Capture the essence of the 1920’s, by focusing on silk slip dresses, but give them a modern twist. 

Location: Shot in the iconic Hampstead Heath pergola and gardens, this Georgian-inspired terraced gardens is the perfect backdrop to this roaring twenties shoot.

Eight years in, and still killing this fashion game. Now a mother, wife, professional-by-day and part-time blogger in between, I still love blogging, producing fashion shoots and curating this blog.
My interests lie in producing high editorial-style content, shooting in grand and unique locations, make-up shoots and doing more studio shoots that really push the boundaries.
I'm open to collaborations and ideas, so please message me.
