I recently had the opportunity to take some photos for Watch This Space Boutique in Leicester's St Martins Square. Having walked past the shop front many times and marvelled at the eclectic displays within, I was thrilled to work with them. The shop displays a range of work, from clothing, through jewellery, to art prints and handmade greeting cards - all designed and made by local artists and designers. Steph, the owner, is a clothing designer/budding social entrepeneur with a perpetually chirpy personality and was great fun to work with!
After some wonderful hair by Danique styling (also based in Leicester City Centre) we spent the day in the basement of the shop, shooting some clothing that Steph had designed specifically to cater to all body sizes, inclusive of plus sized women.
Although the shoot was over a month ago, the reason I'm posting this now is because the photos, alongside an article about Steph's new range, made it into the local paper - the Leicester Mercury, earlier this week. Here's a link to the story. Find out more about Watch This Space boutique on their website: www.watchthisspaceboutique.com
