Daily Mail shoot with the gorgeous Imogen Thomas

So a little while ago celeb photographer Caron Westbrook put together a shoot with the glamorous Imogen Thomas -former Miss Wales and Big Brother contestant and asked me to style it! 
We shot Imogen in a vintage inspired outfit from the 'littlist retro shop' to show off her new business woman look since designing her own range of children's wear which is due to launch next year. 

Her 2nd look consisted of 2 of my brand new evening gowns from my new collection. The first being a subtle gold and silver embellished upper bodice with a full flared white chiffon skirt. 

The second dress is a dusky pink sassy satin fishtail with ruffle detail on the back & train, this would also look great in Ivory for a sophisticated couture look as a wedding gown. 

The Daily Mail and Mirror soon snapped up these images quoting my brand as "one of the celeb favourites"
Exciting times ��
