Georgia Hardinge (STILL)

The wonderful guys at Trace PR put me in touch with amazing and charismatic designer Georgia Harding to work with her on her SS13 collection video "STILL"

With the help of the wonderful Greg Kara and Lea James we headed down to an old bank in london to film non underwater shots of the video bright on early on a chilly morning,,,,,

with that all wrapped up by midday we all  boarded a coach and heading to a wonderful underwater studio just outside london.

The result is a stunning video the makeup was kept very raw with just a hint of colour on the lips and a little shimmer on the eyes...........

As most of you know I LOVE LOVE shooting underwater and this video was no exception I had a blast.

Thank you to Trace Pr and Georgia for letting me be part of something so magical xxx

Major update -

As some of you mite know due to personal reasons I took a little time out after fashion week and updating my blog has been the last thing on my mind.....  this year has been testing but im happy to say in my time of need my loving family and the creative community really supported me and showed me there love.

It proved to me that I am very blessed and although it can be so tough being a creative I wouldn't want to be anywhere but here rite now.........

I have started working and shooting again and have some wonderful things happening over the next couple of months :)

So I will try and keep you all up to date but i thought i would post a few links and videos to some fashion week stuff, a few new shoots and a couple of music videos I have had the pleasure of working on but just not had the time to plus ;p xxx

Christopher Raeburn SS13

My 2nd show for mens collections was for the charming Christopher Raeburn who closed the London BFC showspace....

The atmosphere backstage was very chilled, makeup was again clean & fresh and a little dewy.....

Thanks you to Lea  & Lauren & the AOFM pro team x mwah x

Matthew Miller SS13

2012 was a fitting year to host the first ever London's Men Collections, I was lucky enough to key two shows for the debut event at the BFC showspace and in true fashion week style I ended up running from shoot to show to event with the lovely Lea James along for another crazy ride ;p

The 1st show I keyed was for the amazingly talented Matthew Miller backstage was a little crazy having to get 15 models ready in such a cramped space but as always Mathews team was a pleasure to work with and the show went off without a hitch :)
(although I did smash a powder all over the show space floor during rehearsal) DUH!!!!! :0

Makeup was very clean and simple with the main focus on skincare and grooming....

Take a look at some backstage images and a video of the show ;p x

also included a video of matthew explaining his SS13 collection

Thank you to the wonderful Greg for all his help assisting on the day :)
