Grafea Shoot


Hello and happy Friday guys! I don't normally update my blog on a Friday night, but I have so many new looks to show you, that I wanted to try and keep as up to date as possible!

Just before Christmas, the lovely Amy from the Manchester brand, Grafea, emailed me to ask if I would like to collaborate and take part in a photo shoot with one of their amazing bags. Now if you aren't sure who Grafea are, you really need to check them out. They are based here in Manchester and they make the most beautiful leather bags I have ever seen! They're most well known for their stunning backpacks (all over instagram right now) but they also create fantastic camera bags and satchels.

I had admired their bags for months, so I obviously jumped at the chance! Amy had the idea of creating a seventies vibe with my shoot, which I thought was a fab idea, not only because seventies is a massive trend this year, but also because I love vintage and retro looks. Amy sent me over a mood board of her thoughts and ideas, and I started planning my look. After a lot of deliberation, I finally decided on my black flares, vintage shirt and fur coat. I also took a fur gillet which did make it into a few pics. The look is over-exaggerated and I love it! I wouldn't normally go so glam, but it fitted with the whole vibe and I felt like an extra from American Hustle! We shot the pics on a freeeeezing afternoon in the Northern Quarter. Luckily, I got to shoot with two of the bags, and I absolutely fell in love! Be sure to check them out!

 Have a great weekend, see you soon!
