BEHIND THE SCENES OF OUR LATEST PHOTO SHOOT

The debut Pretty Mi collection is inspired by all of my favourite things. I wanted to have fun with it, so it became an eclectic mix of animal print, delicious florals, 70's inspired embroidery and mermaid feels!

I love everything vintage - and in particular the 1970's! At the back of my mind I have memories of my mum wearing the most fabulous bikinis and in the most gorgeous and colourful prints while on family holidays in sunny Cornwall. 

So where better to shoot the collection, but in a superb 70's-built retro location on the edge of Robin Hood country. With its amazing glass walls, untouched original features, LA vibe and sunken rooms! This made for a fantastic shoot, with bikini shots taken through the panels of glass to create moody shadows and reflections. 

I created two muses for the brand with the help of illustrator Poppy Spinks. I wanted to bring them to life which we did with two beautiful models Stephanie and Melissa, who together created a super cool LA-house-party vibe. Think Boogie Nights meets James Bond!

Did I mention the pool with original diving board....house envy!

Enjoy a sneeky peek behind the scenes:

Thats a wrap!
