PIANIST BY DAY, FASHIONISTA BY NIGHT

SABA camisole, Portmans pants, Jolie & Deen necklace

The line 'Pianist by day fashionista by night' that you'll see on my business card holds truer now than ever before. The last couple of months have been an enormous learning curve for me - co-founding ANON. with my regular blog photographer Thomas (who incidentally is a violinist), organising the first of our concert series, and of course the practice and rehearsals that go into that behind-the-scenes is certainly trickier than one would expect. And we hope to introduce a fresher perspective to the common conventional perceptions of Classical music, showing that 1) it is NOT (contrary to popular belief) just for old people and 2) you don't need to be a trained muso to enjoy the experience. 

So naturally, it was sooner or later that we'd take our expertise in outfit shooting and put it to good use within a musical setting. Admittedly, concert attire is one I find exceptionally tricky - anything too form-fitting or short faces immediate elimination. And overestimate your ability to pedal with heels and you'll be left praying that you avoid a foot cramp.. till you get offstage, at least. Now let's hope I get that right this coming Sunday and Tuesday..!
