Kicking off 2017

2017 is finally starting to kick in for me. After a few weeks resting up after New Year I'm getting back into the swing of things. My "Karma Chameleon" editorial was published as a cover story with Surreal Beauty Magazine which was a lovely start to the week as the whole team worked so hard to collaborate on those images!

This weekend I worked with another kick ass team of ladies on an alternative ballet inspired fashion shoot. Rather than being in the studio, we got out on location and rented a space from The Dance Studio Leeds. The space itself was fantastic, with lots of natural light, mirrors and ballet bars, which was perfect for what we needed!

It was important that we had a model who is an actual dancer for this shoot (we all remember what happened when Kendall Jenner modelled as a dancer last year!) so we got in touch with Billie Hannah, a tattooed professional dancer and fire performer in Leeds. Her look met up with the styling of the shoot perfectly!

Despite a 7am makeup start, which meant some of our team had their alarms set for 4am to account for travel time, everything came together well! Our makeup artist, Samantha Lyann, created two stunning looks. One soft, glowing look to contrast with the dark and dramatic styling, and the other a darker and slightly gothic smoked out eye and lip. Hair stylist Jessica Ford combined soft loose curls with textured braids and accessories to set the whole look off perfectly.
