I originally donned one of Rachel Loveguts' creations at her university, Central St. Martins, for a project compiled by John Galliano (!). The aim of the project was to find a new intern from the young designers, therefore they had to create and present their projects to some of Galliano's "people". Unfortunately Rachel's design didn't win, however she moved on to a different internship based in Paris, and I can see her work going far.
A few weeks ago we headed over to Rankin's studio where studio manager Neil Dawson managed to squeeze us in between the neon-clad Russian model shooting for Elle. The studio was everything I imagined it to be, and although it was great to model there (and watching them use the Phase One and Capture One software), I could never see myself working in that kind of environment. The photos we got look fantastic though; although simple, they create the moody atmosphere that I think the outfit needs.
