When one of my favourite Irish designers, Alice Halliday, got in touch with a proposal for a Valentines Day themed collaboration, I was 100% up for it. Not only is my birthday on Valentines Day, but Alice is a designer that I've been following on Instagram since forever. I actually discovered her work through one of my favourite artists Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine) who wore one of Alice's capes a while back. Since then, her ethical and ethereal pieces have been featured in many publications, and are stocked in both Ireland & the UK (stockists below!), not to mention online.
The end result was a sort of Alice In Wonderland themed photoshoot, shot at my one of favourite places. The eerie fog and background void of many people really added to the mythical look I was going for! Although I evidently have my own sense of personal style, I absolutely love putting themed shoots together. I don't have a professional photographer, and I'm not a model- but that doesn't make styling photo shoots impossible. Just grab a friend (or a younger sister in my case!), put on some pretty clothes based around a certain theme, and voila!
