Behind the scenes for The Shoot: Chinatown Geek

It might be worth explaining first, that I absolutely love everything about China. I’ve had this fairytale-style obsession with the country since I was a small child, back when globalisation hadn’t really hit yet and places still seemed far away and mysterious. As a result I love everything from their food, art, culture, history and …

The Fashion Nomad’s Hidden Gems of London

There are many amazing places to visit in London, some are incredibly well-known and some you would never know existed if you didn’t have a local point them out. Nearly all the locations on this list are places I’ve done shoots at before, and that is partially because I like to find unusual places and also because I did genuinely fall in love with these locations. So here is my list of spots that I think are absolute gems in London and not everyone will know about.

The Shoot: North Woolwich pier, East London

The Shoot: North Woolwich pier, East London

Hello world,

I’m back with another Look of the Day, in what three months? I’m not quite sure how long it’s been other than it’s been way too long.

This one was shot in east London at North Woolwich pier, hence the name, after a few days I spent exploring this dilapidated and forgotten part of London. Sometimes I just love grabbing my camera and exploring places like the old docklands. There’s a certain rush you get to climbing over barriers and going into restricted areas to see the parts of London you usually wouldn’t see.

As you can see this pier and boathouse is quite neglected and in a way it was quite dangerous to do the shoot there as half the wooden floorboards were rotten through and missing. It was also extra cool that that morning was quite misty, so the City is almost lost in the mist.

The top and trousers are from H&M Trend, as per usual. I really would love to see them do a collection that I don’t end up buying every piece from. I really gotta learn to vary my shops a bit more.

So let me know what you think of these images and I’ll be back in the next couple of days with another post.

Top: H&M Trend
Trousers: H&M Trend
Heels: New Look
Bag: Penneys/Primark
Bracelets: Forever 21 and thrifted
Rings: Forever 21 and DIY
Necklace: Jimmy Choo for H&M

Until then,

Franzi
