Fashions Fade, Style Is Eternal

BITS ‘N BOBS

I’ve always loved making things.  When I see something I like I instantly think of how I can make it, what materials I’d use and how I could make it in my own unique version.  My earliest memory of making something (with no steps or plan to follow) was a miniture four poster doll’s bed, complete with curtains and bedding – I remember being so chuffed with it ;o)  So it’s no surprise that I follow the same thinking for every shoot.  I like to add a uniqueness to them by creating something that adds texture and depth.  Some things take hours and hours to make and can cost a fortune, but it’s so rewarding seeing them on the models and in the magazines!

Here are a few of the things I’ve made and the end result.

I created a mood board to portray a modern-day version of Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring the fab, the famous, the one and only Audrey Hepburn.   The character I have portrayed is of a young woman in her early 30′s (which are apparently the new 20′s, or so I keep telling myself anyway) who has a classic, glamorous, contemporary and elegant style and who portrays sophistication, independence, fun and a little feistiness.
