So you've seen the instagram updates, you've snuck a peek behind-the-scenes - thank you for waiting.

We started with a loose concept - gaga-like, crazy print, bold colours, big hair - and I let my mind run wild with the countless number of pieces I found while browsing the online stores. It was tricky, however, to narrow them down and come up with something less 'everyday' and something with more of a punch! As Mim puts it: This photoshoot is based on 1950s patriarchal values - the model embodies the character of a housewife who desires to escape the clinically dull, outdated style of her surroundings. She finds solace in fashion, which she uses to take on various personas. 

I loved working with the colour, layers and print clashes - the energy of the colour and print in the first outfit, while still feminine, holds a certain assertiveness, while the second was a play on the more 'masculine' top layers paired with the sweetest one-piece.

A huge, massive, grateful thank you to BAM Brands, for providing the beautiful, sweet Amore and Sorvete swimwear, To The Max for the stunning pieces, and Lovisa for allowing me to raid your accessories drawer! And to the team, thank you for a wonderful shoot.
