LFW A/W 2014-15 Favourite: Meadham Kirchhoff

Meadham Kirchhoff once again did not disappoint this season. The design duo paired with Penhaligon's again, this time to create a whole new scent. The name of the A/W 2014-15 collection, 'Tralala', is the same name as the new scent which Meadham Kirchhoff and Penhaligon's created together. The scent will be available to buy from Harvey Nichols on April 21st. Here is a collection of my favourite catwalk looks from the show paired with some nostalgic show references.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers...

I recently carried out a photo shoot inspired by research findings from a university project entitled 'Research and Innovation'. My concept was to produce a cultural flower market in Seven Dials, Covent Garden, involving seven different cultures and the area's diverse retailers. I found it intriguing looking into how different cultures worldwide use flowers for markets, celebrations and festivals and so I wanted to incorporate these different aspects into a colourful, beautiful photo shoot.
