Hey all! Lots has been happening in the world of the secret rose lately, what with uni assignments having had to be written and work taking up the rest of the time, orders were left to pile up in my newly purchased ‘orders’ book – seemingly unloved and alone. Alas, now that the deadline is behind us, they have been taken to hand, and this week marks the beginning of what I hope to be quite the creative frenzy!
To start, some photos I’m particularly proud of from Vida’s February & March fashion shoots, for which I am creative director. Especially when I’m busy, these are what I use as my creative vent, having no time to pick up my needle and thread!
Vida’s February Shoot had a ‘modern vintage’ theme, inspired by whats happening over at Louis Vuitton and Prada. The wardrobe is from some of my favourite shops, including Blush n’ Panic vintage boutique, run by the adorable Sam, as well as fav high street brands Topshop and Mango. It was shot at the gorgeous Castello Zamittellu and the model is one of my favourite new local faces, Madeleine.
The March Shoot was rather different, playing on the theme of Carnival (which is quite big here in Malta) and giving it a fashion twist. The masks are handmade by yours truly – yes I gave myself an excuse to get crafty in the midst of assignments, what’s not to love? The model, Mandy, was so professional bless her, working hard to get the shot in the blistering cold at Isla – and, at least I think, it was worth it!
As for crafty ventures from the secret rose, many are currently underway, and I promise a post showing off the latest offerings sharpish! Have yourselves a good weekend y’all 🙂 Oh, and before I forget, those on the fair isles should really get there arses down to Patches Market tomorrow at Valletta’s indoor market – I won’t have a stall myself due to aforementioned assignments, but there’s sure to be lots of talent on show!
