If I could pick a wardrobe to wear to work, this be it. Lookbook from La Garconne. Absolutely ADORE the 3.1 Phillip Lim Side Panel Trousers, & the Cody Open Toe Sandal, & always a fan of baggy wool knits, especially on sunny spring days when its not yet hot enough for just a tee. I came across this website through Studded Hearts, never knew this website existed before today! Such yummy pieces.

I can't get over how absolutely SICK this collection is, but to be honest I was more taken with the styling & the choice of beautiful models. I liked it so much I was inspired to change my hair and its pretty similar to the first image. Yessirr my blonde dip dye has finally gone and I am now back to basics, I actually really do think dip dye has had its moment for me and I want to try something completely different. I have even gone back to nude lipstick & smoky eyes again similar to the make-up in this collection. Ha! Sorry for the delayed blog post, I've had the sickest little month, I have been working at London Fashion Week as a model booker for Vauxhall Fashion Scout, it was absolutely AMAZE! The thrill of being in the midst of a fashion show, speaking to the designers & some of the worlds top model agencies, and being responsible for booking the models was such a rewarding experience and to top it off I got to watch the shows, witnessing all my hard work. I also made some lovely friends and its SO good to be able to add it to my CV as not just an internship, but an amazing experience I would do again in a heartbeat. Oh and I was 25 last tuesday so all in all a veryyyyy good month, ha!

Kasia Bobula, a ridiculously talented London based fashion photographer (& one of my most favourites) has decided to collaborate with equally gifted photographer Holly Nay providing a striking publication, which captures their most intimate and vibrant backstage photography. 26-year-old Kasia, who originated from the beautiful and charming city of Warsaw, counts backstage photography as one of her favourite pastimes. The Polish photographer, who also contributes for Dazed Digital, uses her time at Fashion Week to capture beautiful scanty clad models loitering around backstage in extravagant high-end design ensembles. However, Bobula claims in the midst of an extremely crowded and fast paced environment it becomes hard for a photographer to work but she admits, ‘It almost becomes a hunt for the right moment. And when it’s right, it can be very, very beautiful.’ Kasia’s work is often intimate & personal, presenting images that engage with her subjects, as if in conversation.
Besides fashion the young freelancer also enjoys capturing the ‘outcasts of the city’ and is ‘fascinated with tower blocks and the seemingly grey architecture of Eastern Europe’ photographing gritty realism in its true form; a far cry from the beauty of fashion. Kasia claims there is no division between the grim and the glamour of fashion, claiming that the downright frank can be just as beautiful. Kasia puts this inspiration down to her mother who also had a talent to create an atypically beautiful image. Aside from her mother, Kasia also adores classic photographers such as Sally Mann, Ed van der Elsken and Irving Penn.
Above, I have picked some of my all time Kasia favourites, which I have kept on my computer for some time hoping I can find an opportunity to show them off & both blogs won’t go a miss! She captures that personality & rare miraculous authenticity in fashion I continue to truly adore..
