ACT THREE. AW ’15 Lookbook

Act Three Lookbook | Model and Stylist Alexandra Spence | photographer Danielle SuzanneI’m so excited to finally be able to share with you ACT THREE.‘s AW ’15 lookbook that I styled and modelled for back when snow was still very much on the ground (ugh! let’s not even think about that). If you follow me on instagram, then you have already seen images here and there, but if you don’t (you probably should though), then this will all be new to you.

Sarah McGowan, founder and designer of ACT THREE. wanted to create a line of accessible vintage inspired garments for petite women (5’4″ and under) like herself, and so was born Act Three and this adorable collection of varying styles of dresses that I honestly want to own each and every one of. Unfortunately friends, she doesn’t have her own online shop (although maybe one day), but her stockists at the moment will be Victoire and Coal’s Miner’s Daughter and they both have online shops, so be sure to check check check when her pieces are available to nab yourself something.

I really love the black button up with contrasting white collar and the black & white polkadot with a high neck tie. What are you favourites?!

Danielle almost exclusively shoots on film, so, understandably, things can occasionally go wrong with the images and developing process, which was the case with the outdoor shots from this shoot. But that’s quite alright, I’m quite smitten with how these shots turned out, and I hope you are too.

Styling / Behind the scenes

DSC_3702Last weekend I styled a shoot for Danielle, with makeup and hair by Lisa and modelled by little doll face, Charlotte. In between styling and helping Danielle with some things, I managed to snap a few behind the scenes photos, as I usually try to do when I am styling a shoot, so that I can share it with you!

Working with Danielle is always such a pleasure. I feel like we have the same sort of mind-set when it comes to the process of shooting and I love that she gives me a lot of creative freedom when styling. It’s nice to find someone you feel at ease with and your vision is much the same, cause goodness knows creatives can butt heads when they feel the integrity of their work is being compromised. Anyways, here is just a few snaps from my DSLR/iPhone, and you can be sure I’ll share the final images with you when Danielle releases them.DSC_3676DSC_3683DSC_3693Processed with VSCOcam with g3 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with n3 presetDSC_3700

Styling / Mode Laboratory

3A few months back I was given some pieces from Mode Laboratory’s SS ’15 collection to shoot, and since their pieces have a whimsical, surreal feel to them, I thought Gerald would be the perfect photographer to capture them in the best possible light. I wanted to share a few of the final images with you, so here we are!

Following Nature

031_8I met Heather Wells, designer of these exquisite headpieces and the creator behind Heart of Gold Designs, through instagram last summer. Her headpieces are made from vintage and precious materials crafted into these incredibly romantic and ethereal pieces that would make any gal (or guy) feel like an elegant, otherworldly creature. I knew I would want to shoot some of her pieces at some point and luck would have it that Meaghan and I had envisioned a shoot like this almost one year ago (except with a lot more snow…snow, she’s never there when you need her), so Heather’s pieces felt like the perfect fit once we finally brought this shoot to fruition. I’m pretty happy with how the images turned out. Meaghan and I took turns behind and in front of my pentax on this somewhat mild winter day.
