Video: Behind the scenes with Ayten Gasson

A little while ago I posted some behind the scenes photos from the Lookbook I styled for the amazing lingerie designer Ayten Gasson. Photos are all well and good, but wouldn't you rather see a video? Well, you are in luck! My very lovely and talented friend Alex Oliver filmed the whole day, and has released a sneaky snippet of the footage - check it out, won't you?

Behind the scenes: photoshoot with India Hobson

Today was a brilliant day! Not only did I get to work with India Hobson, a photographer whose work I have long admired, but I also got to style my good friend Skye, who also happens to be a brilliant model. We also had the very lovely Nina Fay doing the make up, so the team was great all round.

We shot in a beautiful house in Islington, and we weren't alone - Casper the friendly cat was on stand by to give Skye his top posing tips...and to try and steal attention!

The theme of the shoot was dreamy, sleepy and romantic, which gave me the opportunity to use amazing pieces by some incredible designers including Draw in Light, Ayten Gasson, bourne by Elise Berger and Fable London. I may have also snuck in some cheeky Swell Vintage pieces, but it all worked in context - promise! I've got the behind the scenes snaps to prove it too.

Thanks for an amazing afternoon, ladies!

Photographer: India Hobson
Model: Skye
Make up and hair: Nina Fay

I can't wait to share the pictures with the world very soon, so come back soon!

Behind the scenes: Ayten Gasson lookbook shoot

Yesterday I had the pleasure of styling the next two lookbooks for Ayten Gasson, an absolutely stunning vintage-inspired lingerie line. Ayten's pieces are all about decadence and luxury, so it was perfectly fitting that we were shooting at The Pavilion, a quirky hotel near Hyde Park where each room was decorated to a different insanely elaborate theme.

There was a lot to get through (two seasons worth of lingerie), but fortunately we had a big team of dedicated and talented folk. We also had my good friend Alex Oliver filming all of the action, so keep your eyes peeled for some video action very soon. Our aim was to produce high fashion images that showcase Ayten's lingerie to its fullest potential, and based on what I saw on the day I think we definitely succeeded. It definitely helps when you have amazing lingerie, two beautiful models and a highly professional team around you!

But enough talk - feast your eyes on some behind the scenes snaps taken on my brand new camera!

I want to say thank you to everyone involved! It was a long day, but we got through it with amazing results:
I also have a sneaky peek at one of the final images. Enjoy, and come back for more soon, won't you?
