One of the most fun and creative parts of my job is the editorial fashion shoots that I create with my INCREDIBLY TALENTED photo shoot team. For issue 10 (Sept/Oct 2016) we wanted to channel one ofthe original Rock n Roll couple: Elvis and Priscilla Presley. We used just one model, Tarla, who was actually the perfect Elvis and Priscilla, and we shot at Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton.
This editorial was created to pay homage to their 1967 wedding at the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Their iconic wedding images refuse to date, and to this day are still used as inspiration by so many Rock n Roll brides.
Priscilla, the archetypal wild child (let’s face it she was only 14 when she met her future husband) with those big lashes and even bigger hairstyles continues to be so widely imitated (hello Lana Del Rey and Amy Winehouse).
The King gave us Rock n Roll, double denim, jailhouse stripes and later, even rhinestone jumpsuits. These are all thoroughly timeless trends that work regardless of gender. Mr & Mrs Presley, the ultimate Rock n Roll couple, we salute you.
I adore print, but the sucky part is that while we might shoot a couple of thousand images (seriously, our photographer Lisa Devlin is very snap-happy!) we only have the space to share about 10 of them in the mag. Such a travesty! Which is why I’ve decided to share (some of) the rest of them on the blog with you today. I hope you love them.
Can you believe this dress is from ASOS? They’ve killed it with their bridal range!
We also shot this in entirely black and white, which is unusual for me (I love colour) but for this theme it just really worked and actually helped show up the intricate lace on this incredible Katya Katya Shehurina gown.
