Styling for me is just as satisfying and enjoyable as designing fashion. It allows me to draw inspiration and release my creative energy in a fresh explorative way. I enjoy engaging with my individual clients whilst gaining a greater understanding of their personalities. I also like to encourage every client to be openminded to discovering new style possibilities.
This week I was fortunate enough to work with the very talented up and coming actress Chloe Gavin represented by McMahon Management. Chloe has such a passionate, expressive and honest persona. I had an absolute ball styling looks for her.
Being an actress, Chloe’s ability to take on different characters enhanced each look.
I want to thank Chloe for taking the time out of her crazy busy schedule to work with me.

This first look was inspired by the sultry, feminine but strong Spanish Flamenco dancer. I think Chloe carried this look beautifully. Chloe is wearing all vintage including accessories, except for the shoes.
I love Audrey Hepburn and often draw inspiration from her and have done so in styling this look. I had a lot of fun here and added Blackcurrant favoured ‘Chupa Chups’ around the Audrey inspired round hair bun. I continued the purple theme with the addition of a delicious berry smoothie.
Chloe wears a vintage dress and the brooch is from my own personal collection.
Look 3 was inspired by 1940′s fashion. I loved how women of this decade maintained such femininity whilst wearing trousers. Chloe played the character of a confident, feminine and flirty woman of the 1940′s.
Chloe is wearing: David Lawrence high waisted pants. Shirt, brooch and belt are all vintage. Tory Burch Clutch, handmade headpiece from the amazing label ’2adorn’ http://www.2adorn.com/
The suspenders I bought from a men’s suit shop many years ago.
Look 4 reveals the youthful, sincere and playful side of Chloe. We had a lot of fun shooting this look as we discussed the reference to Alice in Wonderland.
Chloe wears: Vintage dress, vintage belt, Alannah Hill headband, Sportsgirl necklace and Nude shoes.
I wanted to portray the strong, determined and sexy side of Chloe when styling this look.
Chloe is wearing: Gold sequins Saba dress. Fur vest, belt, necklace, ring and clutch are all vintage.
