Inspirational images which gave me to mood for the November 2013 shoot.

Photoshoot, November 2013
Inspired by Gothic fairytales, pagan nymphs and pre-raphaelite paintings, I collaborated again with Reflective Moods Photography in Scotland.
Styling and modeling by myself.
Yesterday I spent a lovely Sunday afternoon with Vincent at a most inspiring exhibition: the much publicized Azzedine Alaïa expo at the Palais Galliera.
Among the throngs of visitors, we were to be found on our hands and knees, breathless with awe at the beauty & technical expertise on display. We discussed for hours at the small exhibition taking in every detail of the 70 models on display, critiquing and analyzing and taking notes - one never knows what can be learned :)
There will be more drawings to come when i have the time, with an abundance of journal entries to inspire me, im sure i can make a decent series. But what to do with them then? Leave them rotting in a sketchbook? You see i have gotten so used to sketching out ideas for fashion and seeing those ideas brought to life on the catwalk, that I feel a bit sad that my drawings are done when they are done, there is nothing after the drawing, except…more drawing…Hmm, odd concept for a young fashion designer.

All Hallows Eve
This: the weirdest of the 3 so far, Is an image that I had actually drawn IN one of my dreams and decided to bring to life once i woke up.
Featuring a full moon-like skull in the dark sky, with multicoloured blocks like distant fields, moon-lit silhouettes of trees on the horizon & as as though that wasn’t odd enough: a treble clef in the middle!
Done in chalk pastels on Brown paper & photo taken using my blackberry.
