This season I had the privilege to work with uber talented Milliner Piers Atkinson again on his SS12 collection 'Hot Vodoo'. We always present Piers collections in groups of 3. The first 3 collections were printed newspaper style, collections 4,5 & 6 were all printed double sided posters and now collection 8 has followed 7 with the concept of a slim, chic, pull out Parisian menu.
Following the success of last season's lookbook, based on the dark tones of Brassai and featuring greats like Judy Blame, Princess Julia, Jenny Runacre etc...... we decided to follow suit via concept and shoot Piers SS12 collection on exciting personalities that we feel, this season, celebrate colour.
Producing the whole job I quickly gathered up our colourful characters, such as Fred Butler, Julie Verhoeven, Andrew Logan, Bethan Wood, Duggie Fields etc........... and together shot them with photographer Thomas Cooksey and Art Director Alun Davies to produce this series of portraits............... Talented director Zaiba Jabbar was also onboard the team to film all these experiences and produce a short film which premiered on Italian Vogue.com
