The still is from an up and coming film called Black Swan which is sounding like a feathery dance version of The Secretary, move over Gyllennhaal, Portman is coming through. Rodarte are providing the costumes so I know ghetto smurf Tavi will be super happy, even if Vice aren't! Looks like the perfect amount of corruption and dance to have me hooked, I'm pretty excited. That's it, happy christmas. Yeah no caps.

After doing this shoot I have decided to leave styling alone for a while, unless more opportunties like this come up of course but no more student help outs, as I want to focus on my own work and styling isn't where I meant to end up! After working with Mo on her end of second year and third year fashion photography projects I have bulit up a good portfolio in styling and it has led onto other projects but I want to go in another direction now. I'm currently researching films to help put my AIP concept into action. I will be working with photographer Sarah Brimley to create a stop motion fashion ident showcasing my own designs and concepts.

I got to go down to the Ziad Ghanem show this Monday at LFW. I was quite drunk by the time it came to movie viewing time but I think it was pretty good. Shame it couldn't be realised in an actual live show but I can see making a film is a good way of getting your concept across if your budget isn't large enough to pull off a McQueen style escapade on the catwalk. The clothes didn't kill it for me though, all was a little samey..........I would like to have seen a little more diversity. BUT the prints were beautifully amazing and the movement within the maxi dresses using giant print was a super good call. I'm still interested seeing Ghanem's new moves.
I think I have been a little harsh. I do actually love it.

Spent the day at Sunbeam Studios in London getting some looks together for the lovely Rokhsan. She sings nice songs so go check her out on the link above! Yerr. The day went well apart from running over schedule slightly (hmmmmm 2 and a half hours!) but I think Brimmers was on a roll and didn't wanna stop snapping! This shoot was a bit different to my norms as I am normally dressing the model in accordance to the photographers demands but as these pics were for Rokhsan herself she had more say in what she wanted to wear. So it was important to give her pieces which suited her and what her music represents. Not sure if I completely got it right but we filter through the clothes on offer and came up with some looks. I think she looks awesome! Hope she is pleased with the final looks.
That's it. YUP. goodbye

Anyways, rant over. The studio we used was in an old church but in the end we shot everything outside in their garden as the photographer preferred the lighting out there. I think there's gonna be a second shoot as still have more pieces to photograph but I dunno if I'll be able to go on that one. We shall seeeeee. That's it. Goodbye. I have period pain.
