A few months ago I joined forces with All Of The Above Creative‘s Constance Bowles and Caitlin Worthington to create a shoot for submission to Peppermint Magazine. A national Australian publication with a focus on environmentally sustainable fashion, beauty and lifestyle products, Peppermint is one of my favourite reads, so I was super duper excited when I found out that they were going to publish our shoot in their Autumn 2011 edition. Β That edition hit shelves across Australia today and I must say I think it’s fabulous, made even more wonderful with the inclusion of our Sweet Surrender shoot!

I wanted the styling to be really sweet and feminine so I touched base with Liz from Awoke On A Whale Heart Vintage to borrow some of her superb second hand frocks, plus Oli from Black Beret in Mt Lawley and three of last year’s graduates from Challenger Institute’s fashion and textiles course – Stephanie Audino, Natalie Donovan and Louise Hedley.

Congrats to the team at Peppermint for another fantastic edition! I’ll post more snaps from the shoot that didn’t make it into the magazine later this week.
