More about the gown: This corseted bridal gown design is made in ivory silk crepe & features hand painted & beaded appliqué lace on the corset with pearl straps. The colours painted bleed from blush to apricot to touches of pink & the suggested decor & detailing on the board reflect the subtle, sophisticated palette.

More about the gown: Coquette is a flirty, pretty, princess gown; the corset is created in gold Solstiss lace, the ball gown skirt in shades of pink tulle. The theme built around this bridal gown design has period touches & reflects the luxurious fabrics & textures; Marie Antoinette meets Cinderella.

GILDED MAGAZINE – Royalty Issue – ROYAL KINK x
Last month we worked on & contributed to a really great editorial shoot with Umbar Shakir of Atomik Photography. We were shooting a moody, sexy mix of couture gowns & lingerie with some of our accessories. As the day progressed it really felt like we were shooting a very exclusive, private party – very ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ meets ’50 Shades’ meets ‘Belle de Jour’. We were shooting transparent dresses & lingerie with silk & tulle fishtails & sexy corsets & ball gowns. The whole look was high end & a little risque with opulent pearl chokers, silver sparkling head-dresses & masks.
Chantal was on set styling & the last shot of the day was her Coquette gown which she wanted to make sure really fitted with the whole vibe of the shoot, so she discussed with Suki about giving Kimi an edgier updo & decided to take the sash from one of Sonata’s gorgeous silk & lace robes & turn it into a blindfold to really make her the pretty bad girl.
What a great & happily exhausting day – the team was very diva free & all hands on deck & were all super happy with what they shot & Chantal got to style parts of her gowns with lingerie which gave them a different look & to try different pieces from the collection together, for the first time & they really worked well.
The floating Roxanne was created via a ladder & some cable (always fascinating to see behind the smoke & mirrors).
We are so pleased Gilded Magazine liked what we created & with Umbar’s super quick editing we made it into the issue just before deadline with the issue going live just two weeks after we shot!

Yesterday we found out the shoot Chantal worked on with friend & International Fashion Photographer Emily Soto had been published in US based Thrifty Hunter Magazine AND Emily forwarded Chantal another 41 images from the shoot & some of the images are amazing!
Now that the shoot has been published, not only can we share the images (so look out for lots more being added to various pages on the site), we can also introduce you properly to Valentina & the Opera Cape we made for Coquette & share with you our Dolce Vita design.
The model we worked with on this was a lovely Liverpudlian called Abigail Tara Lilly, who has the air of a young Lily Cole & is just so beautiful & sweet & looked so enchanting in my work; giving it a very delicate, fairy like quality which blended perfectly with Emily’s style of imagery.
So without further ado, here is Emily’s gorgeous fashion editorial in Thrifty Hunter:

EMILY SOTO @ CAPEL MANOR
Just a month after working with Emily Soto in Ireland, we were shooting again together. Emily flew in from NYC for the week & we shot with a beautiful model called Abi on a beautiful, warm & sunny, late October day at Capel Manor, Enfield. I know it well- I studied garden design there for three years & it made a wonderful backdrop. Images are under wraps for now but we shot some new pieces: Valentina, Dolce Vita with a huge black tulle skirt & Coquette with a matching tulle & lace opera cape, so come back soon for an update x.

SHOOTING IN IRELAND with EMILY SOTO
Emily Soto Ireland
This past weekend Chantal was involved with an Emily Soto workshop at Russborough House in Ireland.
Emily Soto is a very talented, well known NYC based fashion photographer. Emily was running a course teaching photographers her techniques & as part of her workshop she & the attendees photograph an editorialesque shoot.
Emily always uses wonderfully photogenic, gamine, delicate young models & shoots in a very romantic style that, quite frankly, Chantal has been a fan of for quite some time & has been keen to work with her. So naturally we were thrilled when she asked us to contribute accessories & gowns for her to shoot!
Chantal took a few select pieces out to Ireland for the shoot & was met with a sunny, warm, perfect Irish September day – her first experience of Ireland.
Emily is fabulous & the shoot team were top notch, we just know we have some great images coming our way & that Emily will have created some wonderful photographs.
