As I’m sure all of you, like me, are getting into the mood for Halloween, I thought it would be the ideal opportunity to share my latest gothic-esque editorial, Dark Romance, featured in
Rough UK Magazine.
Inspired by the prominent autumn-winter styles this season, I shot this editorial in the stunning grounds of St Anne’s Church in Limehouse. We collectively embraced the current Victoriana, rich furs, and over-sized trends in fashion this season, perfect to get you into the spooky spirit. By adding an almost almost grunge-like element to the looks stylist, Sarah Amarteifio, gave the whole shoot a contemporary edge, which fits perfectly with the fashion aesthetic of grungy London. With the clothing by a number of emerging European designers, and the striking gothica makeup from Stephanie Hocking, the editorial tells a story of empty sorrow, unrequited love, and a girl simply lost in a world of her own despair.
