A scared, hollow shell of a girl wishes she was anywhere but here. ‘Here’ is a double disinfected table laid with a single low fat yoghurt, surrounded by anxious teenagers, sat across from a care assistant whose only known English word is ‘eat’, within a residential hospital unit in southern England, miles away from home. ‘Here’ is fear, loneliness, self-hatred, exhaustion, instability, depression, fragility, hopelessness. ‘Here’ is me just 4 years ago, in the depths of anorexia, where a Muller Light was scarier than the prospect of being pinned down to a hospital bed and force fed, and assuming this excuse for a childhood for the best part of 6 years.
Last Thursday I had the absolute pleasure of taking part in a new photoshoot for fashion brand I Dream Of Shapes, which is soon to launch in Edinburgh. The idea was to get together some wonderful local Bloggers (Cera Kamonji, Jennifer Brownlie, Katie Williams, Emily Campbell, Kimberley Grahame and Sophie Middleton) to model these beautiful bespoke designs and show a whole range of body shapes and personalities! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the event (and completely fell in love with these super-high waisted trousers)! Big thank you to Lucie for organising this <3 (more…)
Modelled by the stunning Simone Murphy, styled by Piotr Pyrchala and photographed by the talented Weronika Bachleda-Baca, this photoshoot took place a few weeks back at SDX Fashion to promote the work of some of our most talented Scottish Fashion designers that we stock in The Scottish Design Exchange.
This gorgeous backless gown is made by Scotland-based boutique Lizzie O, and is constructed from the finest vintage kimono silks.
The striking red rose headpiece is made by bespoke headwear designer Kitsch Me Vintage.
