I thought I would share a fashion shoot I did for my friend Lois’s business Punto Belle. Lois makes amazing handmade bags from fabrics she collects from markets and old garments her collection also incldues bunting, cards and framed artwork. Lois hand makes every item to a very high standard and her free machining work is amazing. She is so talented and I’m always amazed looking at her new collections every month. We decided to go last Sunday and try to get some shots of Lois modelling her own designs. It was freezing cold so between shots Lois wrapped up warm in a big coat, she was perfect in front of the camera and made an amazing model! We were thrilled with the results and her website is now looking really professional and gives the buyers a much better idea of how the bag looks. This month Lois has been featured in Folsky‘s newsletter and also appears on their home page. In only a year Lois has progressed so much and I am so excited to see what 2013 beings for Punto Belle so it was a pleasure helping her out with a few photographs. She will be exhibiting at the ReetSweet Valentine’s Fair at the Corn Exchange in Leeds on the 2nd of February if you would like to go and see her work – if you can’t wait until then all Lois’s work is available to buy on her website at www.puntobelle.co.uk.
Hope everyone is keeping warm is this crazy whether we are having! Look forward to sharing with you some new work very soon!
