WRAP #fashionsalvage

At the end of November 2014 I took part to an event organized by non profit organization WRAP in the LM Barry recycling centre at Britannia Mill in Canning Town, London.

The event, hosted by fabulous stylists Emma Slade of Back of the Wardrobe and Katie Jones was meant to encourage all of us to reflect about the use we do of our own clothes.

Did you know that the average life of a piece of clothing is about three years?
And then, what happens?
Well, even tough many items are now recycled and reutilized, there are still tons of clothes which are just thrown away to be replaced by something new.

Our challenge for the night was to dig into the piles of recycled, second-hand clothing items collected in the mill and put together an interesting outfit, which would have gone home with us afterwords.

Everyone accepted the task in their own way: my class mates and friends and I, together with out mentor Anderw Tucker who embraced the challenge in the most unconventional way, managed to find out some extremely worthy pieces such as fur coats and lovely embellished tops, which we proudly styled and made our very own.

WATCHED – Exhibition Fashion Show

At the end of November 2014 I took part to Watched, event organized by the students of BA Fashion Design II year and BA Fashion Media at the London College of Fashion.

The event took place in the LCF Campus of Oxford Circus and featured an exhibition and a catwalk which were both inspired by Geaorge Orwell’s view of the future as a controlled dimension where everyone is being…watched.

My friend and colleague Meike Linthorst was with me as official photographer for the feature, published on Idol Magazine.

Ella Es BANDIDA!

A photographic series I created as an assignment for my MA Fashion Journalism in LCF in November 2014.

The task started with a Primark pinafore our mentor gave us.
I decided to cut it, make a crop top out of it and produce a DIY photo shoot inspired by the bandits of the old Mexican culture, with a feminine twist.

Photographs taken with iPhone6.

Conway for Idol Magazine

At the end of October 2014 I styled a fashion editorial featuring singer and song writer Conway.

The shoot which took place in the Bow Bunker, photographic studio in Bromley-by-Bow, London, was meant to produce the visuals for an upcoming feature on the singer to be published in the printed issue of Idol Magazine.

In October 2014 the feature I wrote about young model and Vivienne Westwood’s grand daughter Cora Corre’ was published online for Wonderland Magazine, along with a shoot I styled.

I must thank the editor of Wonderland Online Brooke McCord for believing in this project but also the wonderful Nicky Johnston and Carl Stanley for making it possible and turning into something even more beautiful that I could have imagined.

Further thanks to Red Vatican for providing some of the fashion and making us notice these talented emergent designer and ultimately to Next Model for collaborating with us all the way through.
