Bedford has some amazing businesses and I’m lucky enough to get to work with some very talented people, one of those is Izabela from the historical clothing company Prior Attire. Izabela started out making beautifully handcrafted and historically accurate clothing from a variety of periods, starting from the late Roman era, up to the 19th century, more recently she has added a bespoke wedding gown service Prior Engagement and her newest venture is the brilliantly named line of Steampunk, victoriana inspired clothing Off The Rails. I love styling up shoots for her clothing and have even modelled some of it myself, the full results of which can be seen here.
Izabela has a very busy year ahead of her as well as working on clothing commissions she is organising her first masquerade ball taking place in April called ‘Spectacular! Spectacular!’ which will be at the stunning Heatherden Hall, more info on the ball can be found here. Excitingly Sarah’s Doo-Wop Dos will be running a hair parlour on site at the ball and will be taking bookings for themed, period, fantasy and vintage hair so to get up-date info on booking an appointment just keep an eye on my facebook page.
I’m off on another exciting collaboration with Izabela today for her Winter Bride Collection and I’ll be posting the results as soon as the final pictures are edited but for now I’ll leave you with some images from a pervious shoot courtesy of Jez Brown Photography.
