“Fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously. You’ve got to have fun with it to make it work!
Think of all the endless possibilities of what you can create. Let your imagination run riot. Have fun, glam up - Love it! Rock it! Own it!"
**This Is Me**
Do you long to run away and join the circus? Do you dream of being a trapeze artist swinging and soaring through the sky? Or a tightrope walker balancing precariously on thin wire? How about a lion tamer, an acrobat, a juggler or maybe a clown?
I always wanted to be the ringmaster. Resplendent in top hat and tails. The master (or mistress) of ceremonies, introducing the acts, bringing the show together. A bit like my day job now!
I remember as a child watching Barnum the musical at The London Palladium. The thrill of the singing, dancing, acrobatics, bright lights, and beautiful, extravagant sets. It was one hell of a spectacle, recently repeated when I watched The Greatest Showman starring Hugh Jackman. The film was mesmerising - so evocative of that London theatre visit and very emotive.
My mind went into overdrive as I began to plan my own ringmaster-inspired shoot…
I was thrilled and delighted at how easy it was to source a top hat and tails. No prizes for guessing that I wanted them in black! It’s such a versatile colour and a perfect blank canvas for me to bling up.
Out came the glue gun, on went the sequins, accompanied by a snazzy pair of jewelled lapels. Added to this ringmaster’s regalia were a champagne gold bow tie and cummerbund, all ‘topped off’ with the most amazing pair of black heeled shoes.
One fabulous outfit later, complete with a magnificent French plait by the fabulous Hilary and the most perfect complexion composed by the brilliant Jenna.
All that was left to do was to shower the shoot in our own inimitable #TeamHeaven brand of fun, colour, and mayhem - cue confetti launcher!
‘Oh what a circus - oh what a show’. And no, that wasn’t our song of choice for this shoot’s video! Instead we went with the rather apt lyrics of ‘This Is Me’ from The Greatest Showman soundtrack. Roll up, roll up. Step this way. It’s showtime!
“And now we invite you backstage to see this month’s shoot: This Is Me.”
