This headpiece started life as a prop, I had an antique book filled with illustrations of butterflies which I wanted to do something unique with.
For the People Tree Christmas catalogue I was asked to create some floral and foliage accessories to compliment the A/W clothing range. I used berries and roses and mixed winter foliage to make crowns and a belt, weaving in some of People Tree’s jewellery range for added sparkle.
For Safia Minney's book 'Naked Fashion - The New Sustainable Fashion Revolution' I created costume accessories using materials which were fair trade, vintage and from the forest floor. I used twigs, flowers, fair trade wool, antique ribbon, recycled paper, tree bark and up-cycled jewellery.
The title of the editorial was 'Forest and Fauna' and shot on location in Epping Forest. The photography is by Jon Rose and Andie Redman, and the styling was also by Andie Reman.
