Last winter in a freezing turn of the century building, I met up with photographer Hannah Mae Clark to collaborate on a long overdue photoshoot for my A/W 16-17 Star Child capsule collection. We had emailed back and forth building our mood boards up months prior, basing the shoot on our favourite musical muses from the 60’s and 70’s.
This was a perfect theme for us, as my dad (a talented multi instrumentalist and music producer) owned a studio space in Hull filled with beautiful vintage instruments and equipment that he had been collecting since he was a teenager.
If we couldn’t get any more fortunate, after putting a Facebook casting post out, a friend reached out to me recommending her sister Lydia (who happens to look like she could be a long lost 3rd child of Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg.) I was absolutely ecstatic and began feverishly collecting clothes to shoot, most of which were generously provided by dreamy Aussie label Lenni.
