Simone Murphy in SDX Fashion SS17

I thought it was about time I showed my lovely readers the latest fashion shoot I’ve directed for my work, The Scottish Design Exchange (SDX), an arts collective supporting Scotland-based creative talent. The purpose was to create a lookbook for SS17, showcasing clothing, jewellery and accessories from Scottish fashion designers that sell their products at SDX. I was lucky enough to collaborate once more with Britain’s Next Top Model contestant Simone Murphy just before she moved to London, along with a bunch of other fabulous Edinburgh folks.
Here are the details:
Model: Simone Murphy
Photographer: Marisa Bruce
Wardrobe Stylist/Creative Director: Ruth MacGilp
Make Up Artist: Naomi Baxter-Moore
Hair Stylist: Senay Taormina

What Does Ethical Fashion Even Mean?

What the hell does ‘ethical fashion’, the industry’s latest buzzword, and the main focus of my blog and career, even mean? I decided, after getting asked asked this question by friends, family, readers, colleagues and customers multiple times, to explore and explain the subject a little more. I am by no means an expert nor a perfect example of an ethical fashion blogger or eco-friendly shopper  (I’m a shopping addict on a student budget!), but sustainable apparel is a subject I’m becoming more and more interested in as time goes by. 
 
These joyful images are from the fair-trade and sustainable Peter Jensen x People Tree Collection (available here). I hope this post helps to shed a little more light on the somewhat overwhelming category of ethical fashion.

Trying New Trends with Ace Vestiti

Girl in cap
 
Have you ever completely written off a trend before you’ve even tried it? Claiming you ‘couldn’t pull it off’? I’m the first to admit I am not very adventurous when it comes to my personal style. Trends like fishnet tights, ‘shrobing’, head-to-toe pink, chokers…I have written off because I don’t have that fashion blogger confidence or supermodel body. Snapbacks are definitely one of those trends, so when UK streetwear brand Ace Vestiti sent me a trucker cap, I thought it was time to step outside my style comfort zone.

Taylor Morris at Harvey Nichols

 
Taylor Morris is a British sunglasses brand founded by Made in Chelsea star Hugo Taylor and his best friend Charlie Morris. Last week I had the pleasure of meeting the founders themselves in their biggest stockist Harvey Nichols to find out more about their company and preview the new collection alongside some other bloggers and press over lunch on the beautiful HN fourth floor restaurant in Edinburgh.
