"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

Styling & Photography: Myself 
MUA: Emma Dowdell ( www.emmadowdell.co.uk)
Model: Alix Stern

Today I did a shoot for my current Uni project.. my inspiration basically stood at Fashion and Body Modification, taken from the ancient mayan's modification representing social status, the flatter and more elongated, the high in social class you were believed to be. 

So with this in mind, I created two head pieces. The first blue creation was using scraps of materials, from lame to organza and then using Aqua film, sewn and then dissolved and moulded to the appropriate shape for the head piece. I then created the second gold option using Mod rock which I then painted gold once it had dried.  

After all of the creating, I then teamed up with my sister again for hair and makeup using Alix again for my model.. We went to our local beach and with the rain coming in from across the sea, the sky was really heavy and moody which was excellent linking the sky to the colours which Alix was wearing. 

All in all, another successful shoot.
