12th February My Project: Minimalistic Monochrome

For my own university project we had a brief in what we had to relate our project to, however it was really wide. I decided to base mine on S/S13 as a starting point after researching and testing I decided to go for minimaliam as it's a huge trend this season and can be very affective within photography in which my photographer was the amazing Louisa Rogers. I wanted the styling to be graphic stripes and check monochrome with very natural and simplistic make up and hair to emphasise the models natural features. Here's how it turned out :)

5th February Freelance Anai Bharucha

My first university freelance photoshoot, wow I was so nervous the night before I could barely sleep! But all went  well and I really enjoyed myself. Anai's photoshoot was based on the icon Amelia Earhart the first female pilot and she had to create three different looks: Street, Lounge, Celebration, Wedding and Work. It was a really long day but definitely worth it! 






Swinging 60's Era

It's been a while since I've blogged my work, been so caught up with uni, work and other freelance projects just haven't had the time to upload! But am going to Bosh them all out now :D

We continued our Era test work in university onto 1960's a huge make up and hair inspired era which is also a major trend with this years S/S13 collections. I looked into 60's icons like Twiggy, Penelope Tree, Julie Driscoll and Jane Burkin as some inspiration. Looking at the main trend of the 1960's which was the eye crease from the 1930's which was repeated in the 60's and thick fake bottom and top eyelashes.

The most iconic hairstyle from the 1960's is the beehive, being worn by many icons of the 1960's The Ronettes and Bridget Bardot and then more recently Amy Winehouse known for her extreme version of the beehive.
