Behind the scenes: photoshoot with Alexandra Cameron

On Friday I travelled to Cambridge to shoot some editorial looks with the brilliant photographer Alexandra Cameron. The concept was inspired by the beautiful 1999 film "The Virgin Suicides" by Sofia Coppola, an idea that both Alexandra and I were very excited about doing as fans of the film. If you haven't seen the film, it's a very tragic yet visually stunning story about five sisters who grow up in a sheltered home. Here's a little YouTube taster for you:

When styling a shoot based on such a iconic and aesthetically important film, it would be very easy to attempt a shot-for-shot "remake", but when selecting pieces I looked for a more subtle nod at the themes of the narrative.

The clothes from Rokit vintage and Fable London, as well as some of my own vintage collection, complimented the theme perfectly, the location was pretty spectacular too! If you're ever in Cambridge, swing by Wandlebury. Especially if the weather is as good as it was for us.

I'd like to say a BIG thanks to the lovely team who made it such a great day.
