Simone Murphy in SDX Fashion SS17

luul-victoria
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

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.

Fifties Femmes


 
 
This semester at university I had to recreate Wonderland magazine with a 1950’s theme for the modern day. Together with my brilliant little team of fashion students I created a digital and printed copy of the publication styling, writing, editing directing and photographing all the content. Now that the project is finally over (phew!) I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite images we created during this project, featuring some fabulous fifties femmes. Let me know what you think!

How to Style: Nu Blvck Pyjama Scarf


Following on from Wednesday’s post, here is another in the Nu Blvck series from our ‘Ways to Style’ photoshoot with Holly May Wesley, featuring the large pyjama scarf in the rust/navy colour way, and the small pyjama scarf in dark grey tied to my navy grab bag. I styled this look very simply, with a taupe Hayley McSporran top, a Forever 21 brass pendant, Mandi Candi Boutique boots and some H&M high waisted black jeans.

How to Style: The Nu Blvck Handbag
