A Gangster’s Girl, photo-shoot styled by Louisa Kilburn

Just before the Summer holidays I styled a shoot with my good friend and make-up artist Charlotte Hughes. We managed to bag an amazing location – No. 11 Cadogan Gardens, which was once an old Gentleman’s club. Joining us we had beautiful Australia model Tahlia, fresh on the book at Next Models and photographer Hannah Hillier, who is definitely a rising star. The whole shoot  came about after Charlotte proposed the idea to me. After studying gangster movies in depth for another project she was doing, Charlotte asked me if I wanted to collaborate with her on a fashion shoot with the same theme. As well as her make-up skills Charlotte has a lot of creative vision and the initial ideas were exciting. After  many coffee meetings and mood-board compilations we both had the same ideas in mind. A gangster’s girl was what we wanted to portray in our editorial photo-shoot. With many calls and emails I managed to borrow clothes from some amazing designers – some unknown, but whom I’m sure will be making their mark in seasons to come.

Take a look at some our mood board images and behind the scenes shots. I’m currently in negotiations with press to publish so watch this space – and I’ll keep you posted.
