If the styling of this shoot starring Daphne Groeneveld seems a little eclectic – fantastical, even – then you need to view it in conjunction with both the shoot’s title at the issue’s theme. Curtsy while you’re thinking, it saves time paraphrases advice the Red Queen gives to Alice amidst other helpful nonsense dispensed in the Garden of Live Flowers.

The issue of i-D is The Royalty Issue and what both Sarah Richardson’s styling and Richard Bush’s photography hits on is not any literal interpretation of Lewis Carrol’s text but instead a beautifully impressionistic one. Daphne’s stern expressions, the regally androgynous ensembles executed with a colourful, modern whimsy, all point to a story that doesn’t quite come from wonderland – but could.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
