It's been so hard to keep this a secret and I might have leaked a few pictures from it already on twitter and facebook, but I did a second collection with Element Eden! And this time we collaborated on a special edition holga camera too.
After the success of the first collection Element asked if Id be interested in collaborating on a second 'Inspired by Daydream Lily' collection and I jumped at the chance. I felt so inspired after the first one and felt I still had more designs and ideas running around in my head.
The artworks for the collection are from two of my favourite artists, Charmaine Olivia who did the ‘Tea Pot silhouette’ print and of course my sister, Bec Winnel. We used my favourite work ‘Viktoriya’ for the ‘Hats Off ‘ singlet.
I also styled the photoshoot packing up a box (or several) of things from around my house to decorate with including my jewellery collection to style the model. As you probably guessed my house is fairly girly/vintage! Full of opshop finds, books and cameras (those who visit regularly probably recognise a lot of my bit n pieces. They have popped up in a few places now! ).
Ahhh I have so much more I want to share about the collection! I took more behind the scenes photos this time as I regretted not documenting it enough last time, sometimes I get so busy at shoots or in the moment I forget to take photos! But this time I took a film camera along and have some beautiful behind the scenes photos I want to share. Also a video, outtakes and photos of the complete collection (some of the pieces were not back in time for the shoot). So I hope you don't mind this taking over my blog for the next wee while!
