Sustainably Radical: Look 1

This is the first look of a sustainable series that I was assigned to do for university for a “Sustainably Radical” assignment. Everything used to style my models were articles of clothing or fabric and objects that we already owned. My goal with these looks (6 looks in total, more to come) was to spend the least amount of money possible, be sustainable, and contribute less to the fast fashion market by not ordering clothes for this shoot. My concept was to portray how fast fashion effects the sea surrounding the island I come from, as people only think the results of fast fashion can only be felt where the production takes place. But the ocean is all connected, and the fibers and dyes spread all over the ocean, through the waves and beyond, and I wanted to focus on the emotion I have towards that situation.

Glam Rock

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s.

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s. I looked to the greatest fashion icons of the time for inspiration, including Bowie, Marc Bolan, and Elton John (at the start of his career). As you can see I had so much fun with the colors and textures, including sequins, glitter, and metallics. My style is usually 90s grunge or 2000s Britney spears era inspired, so this was a huge contrast to me, but I absolutely LOVED the challenge and the outcome. I hope you all enjoy!

The Butterfly Effect 2

Part 2 from my butterfly photoshoot series.

I love coming up with concepts and modeling them myself. I love styling people and producing other shoots, but I also love being in front of the camera, because I get to create the kind of outcome I want, you know? It’s one of my only ways of creative expression, I love it.

Another concept that I wanted brought to life. I am so proud of the outcome, so I’ll just leave the photos here for you to enjoy.

Theme: 7 deadly sins: gluttony

 

These photos are apart of a styling assignment I had for school. The concept behind this work is the seven deadly sins. We had to choose one sin and create a story through styling and photography, and I chose gluttony. This represents the life of an alcoholic, helped brought to life by my friend Niall (model).

As some of you may know, I moved to London to pursue fashion. Here is a classmate I styled a few weeks ago.
