    A WALK IN THE PARK EDITORIAL/ COMMERCIAL SHOOTThis editorial shoot is one of my favourites as we shot in Regents Park in London. While assisting Sophia Kateya in creating looks for potential E-commerce and commercial use, I gained insight into styling pieces using the natural elements as a guide.

  • DON'T TELL MUM (Editorial Shoot)
    DON'T TELL MUM (Editorial Shoot)This shoot was inspired by the 80's/90's fashion editorial era seen in Vogue magazine and high end brand campaign shoots. I assisted the incredible Sophia Kateya, who allowed me free reign to be creative and playful while executing her vision for this shoot. We used new designers to add a modern edginess while not compromising the charm and character of our referenced influence. I'm not in the business of fashion but making Art is my M.O!
