Romantic Kimono Photoshoot & Published in Ellements Magazine

This week images from a recent photoshoot were included in Ellements Magazine Nov 2015 (V2).

I loved doing this shoot as it was super soft, fun and romantic. In these images we explored a softer “Regency Lolita Kimono Style” with the pink furisode and bonnet, adding in some vintage china!

The purple furisode and fantastic headdress were more of a British kitch couture look for my take on Harajuku fashion.

My favourite is the work with the teal iromuji producing a soft romantic look as well as a super vogue ensemble with the smock and absence of an obi.

Enjoy the images!
