FYI, work doesn’t really feel like work when it involves hanging out with a bunch of cool people in an East London studio, sipping tea and listening to Fleetwood Mac in a Baserange bra.
I had the pleasure of styling/modelling in an editorial shot by the talented Roo Lewis for Rêve en Vert, a sustainable e-retailer based in London. I’ve been talking about creating more content to promote sustainable and ethical fashion so I’m really excited to be working with them and to share the end result with you guys. It feels so good to see those intentions materialise and I couldn’t be happier that I got to do that with these guys in some amazing pieces by sustainable designers. See more (including a behind the scenes video) on REV’s website here, and shop the looks here.

Through the brand tenets focusing on organic, fair, local and re-made fashion, REV’s business practices are aimed at reducing the environmental impact through working with designers that source ethically and are aware of production details and business operations.

We also shot some beautiful jewellery pieces by Pamela Love and Melissa Joy Manning- I love the look of a chunky cosy knit with delicate accessories.
Styling and shooting these looks was a breeze; I’m a sucker for high-quality basics that don’t compromise longevity for aesthetic appeal, and the comfort of good fabric (and a happy conscience) are bonuses. My favourite piece was probably the Christopher Raeburn embroidered bomber, but I’m also partial to the cashmere leggings (a.k.a. comfort personified). This was also my first time doing a studio shoot with a film photographer and Roo was a dream to work with- his work is really great and inspiring to a film novice like myself.
