LKM X CJE X GT
A positively progressive project in more ways than one!
I’ve styled many editorials, and I’ve loved each one for their respective experiences, but this one was special…
A personal test of myself to put all my skills acquired in styling, apply them and take it one step further to creatively direct my first ever London shoot. The picturesque grounds of Hampstead’s Pergola & Hill Gardens provided the perfect backdrop for my vision.
Before I had even cast a single team member, I set a goal for myself to get this editorial published. I wanted everyone involved to get as much exposure as possible and I knew from the start that if I got together a solid team, individual and collective quality would shine through. That it did. There were naturally challenging times in the preparation stages with casting crises, venue scouting, burning the midnight oil researching and bringing everything together but it was all worth it.
From the designers to hairstylists, make up artists and of course, the magic creators behind the lens everyone who was involved in the project was a perfect fit.
I achieved my goal beyond even my own expectations.
INTERNATIONALLY published in 2 magazines!!

Styling Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model
They say fortune favours the brave!
After finding out that Chanel Joan Elkayam (an amazingly talented designer I'd had the pleasure of styling for previously at Manchester Fashion Week 2015) was casting for an upcoming editorial, as I'd admired her stunning collections, I had the pleasure of styling her designs once again. Being an avid fan of all Top Model programs, I discovered the model for the shoot was none other than Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model Season 10 winner Chloe Keenan!!
Set in the backdrop of London's picturesque St. Paul's, this editorial was short but very sweet. With the fantastic work from the other members of the shoot team - photographer Tim Copsey, HMUA Sophie Daly and of course model Chloe.

Jsky's fASHION nIGHT
For this event, I took on a creative director role for the Fashion Night of one of Manchester's prime fashionistas, Jsky.
I was responsible for bringing the show together in addition to the on the day styling of the event for both models and performers.
Independently meeting with models and attending castings alongside Jsky, I helped shortlist and select male and female candidates.
I enlisted online and couture brands and designers from Manchester's fashion scene to fit the style aesthetic of the show. I also called on celebrity clients who I had styled previously to perform and further enhance the vibe and entertainment value of the event.
