Each season Dorothy Perkins works with bloggers on creating stories behind chosen the must-haves or fashion “Style Heroes” to invest in for the upcoming . From current accessories essentials to season styling ideas, the chosen fashion bloggers give their fashion tips for the upcoming months. This season I helped the Dorothy Perkins team bring some of these stories to life, working together with them to photograph their Style Hero bloggers.
In today’s Style Hero feature, I’m happy to share my photographs from our shoot with minimalist blogista, Monikh from her blog Trés Monikh. Being a lover of shadow-play and beautifully simple backgrounds, Monikh yearned for some strong shots to really bring her personal style to the Dorothy Perkins looks. Lucky for us we had a fantastic day of sunshine, the perfect opportunity to play with contrast and shadow shaping – great fun. Shooting in direct sunlight was new for me, but I loved both the challenge and the results. It was a breath of fresh air working with someone who had such a clear and different aesthetic both styling and photography wise, pushing me to shoot in a way I wasn’t used to…
Much to your surprise I’m sure, we actually shot these photos in the heart of London at South Bank. I’m always stumbling upon new and cool locations, but it’s amazing what a simple wall can do for photos. Less truly can be more sometimes. And with the awesome styling from MOnkih, a simple background was all we needed. How much do you love the way she tied her shirt in Look 3? It’s literally a normal shirt tied differently – amazing what you can do with a bit of imagination.
Do hope you like this story, big thanks for the Dorothy Perkins team for getting me onboard!
