Today we’re taking a well-heeled trip down memory lane and reminiscing on back when we were still dipping a toe in the murky waters of print magazine life in the digital-addled age.
Last April, following evenings scribbling away at storyboards, calling in items to feature and embarking upon the treacherous task of location hunting, I shot a street style inspired photoshoot with Toni, the blogger behind Fashion Your Seatbelts. (We know, we know, what an amazing blog name!) Back then, we were coursemates – handy, right?
Here’s some of the photographs that didn’t quite make it into the final cut, along with the printed editorial, not-so-wittingly entitled ‘Hello London’ (and photographed in Southampton)…
