Thursday, October 15


It has been a very busy week, what with meeting The Sartorialist, going to The Peter O'Brien for A-Wear fashion show, ( a beautiful final collection, head to A-Wear soon so as not to be dissapointed, The black coat with ruffle detail is a personal favourite, only €200 ) The David La Chapelle exhibition at The Sebastian Guiness Gallery, The Theatre to see The Blue Dragon and doing a new photo shoot! Life is busy with culture. Here is a little taster of the concept for the shoot.

I took inspiration  from 15th and 16th century portraits such as..

Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo Da Vinci

 Laura Battiferri by Bronzino

We shot in the basement of Turbotstown House in Westmeath, big Thank you to Cha cha and Peter.

  1. Hi Helen,
    Popping over from MB -have enjoyed having a look round your blog. Look forward to seeing the results of the photo shoot after seeing the behind the scenes part :)

  2. i love how you use art history to illustrate your fashions -- if it were a catalog (is it?) it would read like a lovely story...xo

  3. a catalogue...... hmmmmm possibly. Good idea

  4. What a fantastic setting! It looks a bit spooky, but I guess that's why you chose it! Can't wait to see the results! x

  5. Can't wait to see the result! The setting is great - very ghostly..

  6. Oh, I've got shivers running down my back... Can't wait for the results!
