Priscilla + Elvis….
Earlier this year I styled on a fashion editorial shoot alongside Alex from The Bijou Bride for Rock n Roll Magazine.
Kat and photographer Lisa Devlin wanted to create a Priscilla, 1960’s vibe, bridal shoot at The Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton. As the idea for the shoot developed we decided that you couldnt have a Priscilla without celebrating her partner Elvis… the King of Rock n Roll!
Alex said ‘Approaching the fashion styling for this shoot I wanted to put myself in a modern day Priscilla’s shoes rather than focus on replication. There are Sixties influences throughout but with a contemporary twist. The stunning scalloped lace detailing on the Katya Katya Shehurina illusion dress and the bow details on those incredible Charlotte Mills bags and shoes are undoubtably retro in feel.
It was such a blast to then take a masculine approach with our beautiful model. The King of Rock & Roll has had such a mighty influence on both men and women’s fashion. And of course there just had to be a tassel element. This Otaduy ‘I Do’ embellished leather fringe bridal jacket is all kinds of amazing. It was important to maintain a subtle sass throughout the Elvis aspect so you’ll note touches of lace, elegant heeled sandals and delicate jewels.’
We really wanted to work on bridal looks that was achievable for all different types of budgets… so alongside the designer samples we also called in bridal pieces from the high street brands such as ASOS. We couldnt believe the quality and style of some of these dresses; they were beautifully cut and embellished with vote details. We paired an amazing sequinned ASOS dress with a bespoke sixties inspired short veil with huge top bow from McFaydon Millinery … Priscilla in perfection!
