A fashioniser’s guide to Marrakech

We’ve already shared some of the beauty of the area and its surrounds in our photo diary from Morocco, but when a fashioniser finds themselves in Marrakech (alternatively known as Marrakesh – both spellings are correct), what should they do and where should they go? Away from the most common of tour guides, away from the polish of those guides focussed only on fabricated luxury…

Religious habits to lingerie, innocence to irreverence

There’s no way irreverence is accidental when your model is packing a crucifix in her black thigh high suspender stockings. No-one makes that kind of styling choice without considering that they might shock or offend, and then deciding to do it anyway.
