Sometimes what you envisage is not always what is executed. Sometimes it's better. Christine and I knew after seeing Gabriel Lee's collection at Fashion Week earlier this year that we had to shoot with his pieces (and we did get our selfies with his floral brimmed caps). Thinking up a theme that was fresh and unique as his designs was at a standstill until it was so obvious what it should be. The crisp whites and soft lilacs, the caps, the sweatshirts and the frilled skirts pointed right towards tennis. With a touch of Alice in Wonderland whimsy courtesy of Cai's stockpile of tennis balls (that was totally unplanned but I'm so glad it happened), we ended up portraying a delicate, fragile yet extremely assertive woman   and a visually beautiful editorial the whole team is extremely proud of. It's definitely my favourite piece of styling work to date. The shoot was also picked up by our friends at Lovage Magazine who have also released Issue 3 as a physical mag so I'm even luckier that my best work to date is immortalised in print.
