Fashion always seems to be such a fast paced, transient world where nothing seems to stick around for too long. Each new season races ahead with designers creating the looks of tomorrow. However, every girl knows that there are a few special pieces that will always remain timeless and classic, unaffected by the passing of time or fleeting trends. I recently had the opportunity to collaborate with three brands based in Hong Kong to recreate the enduring style of one the world’s best loved icons, Audrey Hepburn. Whilst I could not possibly possess the beauty, grace and charisma of Audrey, we did our best with the hair and make-up, expressions and of course, the styling, to channel some of her most iconic looks, using each brands’ products which consisted of cashmere pieces, leather bags crafted from El Salvador and espadrilles designed and handmade in Europe.
The day of our shoot was grey and rainy, but the spirit, passion and enthusiasm of the team made sure the rain didn’t dampen our spirits or ruin our fun! The team specifically chose pieces relevant to Audrey’s style and the result was a cute, vintage and whimsical feel to our finals shots.
Building a timeless wardrobe with beautiful essentials should take priority in every fashion girls’ wish list. If you happen to be in Hong Kong from 23rd to 28th October 2015, the three brands that created my Audrey looks are gathering together to host a pop up store on 1st Floor, 37 Staunton Street, Central.
