The Indie Lingerie Brand Love Bomb!

To promote the Love Bomb feature taking place over the next few weeks, I shot a set of images in an amazing circusy location! Featuring 10 independent lingerie brands, who will be giving away prizes galore from the 30th onwards, the Indie Lingerie Brand Big Love Bomb is a love letter to independence, away from large corporations. Catherine from Kiss Me Deadly wrote a fantastic explanation over on The Lingerie Addict about exactly why we have organised this love in!

I had the pleasure of working with two of my favourite models ever, the beautiful Jess Abidde and Miss Miranda. 

Here is the full set, with makeup by the awesome Cheyenne Raymond:

 I first worked with Jessica over 2 years ago, and then again a few months later. Even then I was impressed by her enthusiasm and posing, not to mention what a nice person she is!

In front of the camera she channels a gorgeous, fierce woman, but as soon as the lens points away she is all smiles. This is such an incredible skill for a model to have - personally I'm just as inspired by a personality as looks. Nobody likes a diva and Jess definitely isn't one!

We finally shot together again a few weeks ago, when she also told me what she had been up to...

 Skip to 1.56 and you will see the first glimpse of Jess on Britain's Next Top Model! I won't spoil the 'ending' but she did pretty well and I am beyond proud of her! 

We shot 3 looks; here is the first, inspired by Josephine Baker, Anna May Wong and Orientalism.
