Hey everyone, this week I’ve been in London shooting Shoreditch fashion show ready for it to feature in Religion magazine. The event was a huge success and took place at the Golden Bee in London’s Shoreditch. All the designers that showcased their work were Crystal Mcfarlane, Radhinna, Staple for the cool kids, Lilla Ballazs, Imzy and Joanna Leigh Norton. The event was organised by Wynter Heayes. Sponsors include Electric London and Ten image, lead make up designer – Naomi Lake.
Here are some sneak previews of the photographs I took. If you want to see anymore Religion magazine will be published around the 7th of may 🙂

Last week I took a trip to London with my friend, to take some photographs for my uni project. The day went really well, although I may have got a bit distracted at the start because we met in Oxford street….
We made our way to Shoreditch about mid-day, thankfully the weather was good. I’ve never been to Shoreditch before, in fact i’m probably a bit clueless when it comes to a lot of London areas, but I really liked it and found it to be very inspiring. There are a lot of vintage shops one in particular called Blitz.
I loved this cupboard!
Blitz was huge, if I had more time I would have stayed and probably spent a lot of money in there but we were already running short on time. It also had a coffee shop which was cute, definitely recommend to anyone visiting around the area.
Taking photographs of people in Shoreditch was fun, everyone was really friendly and most people were happy to have there photograph taken.
I will be going back there at some point this week to finish my project off. It’s turning into a very expensive year already! Hope to update you soon.

Hello! I’m in an excited mood at the moment but also a stressful one… I think its important to have a certain amount of stress in your life otherwise its all pretty mundane.
I’m back at uni and we already have so much work to do. I’m currently working on a 6 week project on street style in London. We have to choose an area of London that’s trendy and interesting, then go and photograph people there. I’m trying to visit Shoreditch this coming Wednesday but I think the weather might let me down. This rain is constant over here in England!
Here are some interesting concepts of different street styles and how its photographed.
Japanese street style
It’s become an interest to everyone, even people that don’t have a specific interest in fashion. The Japanese street style is so unique, and sort of surreal. Pat Lyttle’s book ‘Japanese street style’ is available on Amazon as a paperback.
Most people who surf fashion Blogs will have heard of this well known street style photographer. Scott Schuman’s work has also been featured in magazines like GQ and Italian Vogue, along with ad campaigns for DKNY, Gant etc. The way he captures people is really interesting and his collection of images are all so diverse there’s a style for everyone.
If your not already following them on tumblr or facebook then you definitely should do! I’m sure you are… So many well dressed people, so much clothing envy!
I also have a dissertation idea! So far, I want to do a fashion film inspired by Alfred Hitchcocks ‘The Birds’.
And I cannot wait for the BBC 2 film depicting the manipulative nature of Alfred Hitchcock’s relationship with actress Tippi Hedren. Sienna Miller plays Tippi. I’m not sure when its on but it sounds so interesting. The film is said to suggest Hitchcock blackmailed her into having sex with him by threatening her career.
Thanks for reading! I’ll be updating the blog with progress on my projects shortly. As always any thoughts and comments are very welcome.
