Behind the Scenes – Shooting the New Collection

Yesterday saw the return of my photography ‘Dream Team’ coming together once again to create another breathtaking Photo Shoot!

As usual, everyone brought their unique talents together to help me showcase 19 new fascinator and headpiece’s designs for our new Autumn/Winter Collection.

At our last shoot, we introduced the amazing talents of Body Artist Kate Spinks-Dean and the feedback we received was unbelievable so we decided to try something a little more ‘daring’ this time by using body paint instead of clothing!

The results were truly fabulous and although I’m sure this may be contentious to some, we’re hoping that the majority of our fans will totally love the New Look!!

Everyone worked extremely hard and the end result it set to be the most stunning collection of photos to date with Every Fascinator or headpiece’s looking amazing!!

I wanted to say a very special thank you to my 6 year old daughter Daisy Boo who came along yesterday to help out and acceded everyone’s expectations! She held up lights, collected headpiece’s, helped out with all the make up AND took all of the behind the scene shots shared with you today! She is truly worthy of her ‘assistant’ credit and I was very, very proud of her!


A big thanks to Brymore Academy for allowing us free raine over their fabulous facility… It was a Stunning backdrop!

Working with BAFTA Winning Magician Katherine Mills

Recently we were contacted by Jai Lescieur, Celebrity fashion stylist for the amazing and gorgeous BAFTA winning magician Katherine Mills.

Katherine needed a fabulous bespoke headpiece for a photo shoot and we only happy to step in and finish off her stunning outfit with something truly fabulous!!

Working closely with Katherine and Jai we came up with this magnificent black mask which we were all absolutely thrilled with!
It wasn’t the easiest headpiece I’ve ever made but I’m sure you’ll agree it looks absolutely stunning on Katherine.

We look forward to working with them both again in the future! Watch this space…
