Sunflower Hat

The Bee Keeper Photo Shoot
The Sunflower Hat
Behind the scene photographs
After months of preparation our photo shoot entitled The Bee Keeper took place.
Having bought a jar of local honey from a bee keeper and a honeycomb the ideas of making hats for a photoshoot came flooding in within a few minutes. I quickly asked a friend of mine who is an amazing corsetiere to make a corseted dress. Lyndsey very quickly designed the most beautiful outfit. 
The collaboration started 5 months ago, lots of ideas and lots of sewing. Yesterday we had the most enjoyable day in a Shawn's studio.

Love the expression of Giorgia's face.

To have creative people around me continuously is wonderful. One of my very creative friends is Pasquale Vaira. As a photographer he loves to create an usual scene, his photographs tell a story, From weddings to fashion he loves to demonstrate his imagination through his images, which at times has no bounds.
I enjoy designing hats for him to use in his work. Here are a few of the 1920's photos from his recent photo shoot at a disused railway station. If only the station could tell it's stories of life in the 1920's, There are probably some very interesting historical tales to tell!

Thank you Pasquale.
