I had the opportunity to do this photo shoot with amazing brands like Paul Magen, Valdenize
Soares, Judith Leiber represented by Sangeeta Assomull and with the fantastic photographer Sikandar. The stylist was Saskia Rowlans and the makeup was by Hanna Soraya.
The outfits are amazing. It was a very cold day, around -1 degrees Celsius and we were taking the photographs outside. I think you will agree that the results are stunning. Special thanks to Saskia for putting everything together.
The lifestyle of a model is not all glamour. It requires a lot of hard work sometimes in extreme temperatures. It was a great pleasure to work on this project with such great people. We had great fun working as a team and the results you can see in the video below.

Recently I attended the London Ethnic Boutique event, which was an amazing opportunity to further explore my passion for fashion. During my day there, I discovered plenty of amazing brands, along with a plethora of fantastic, inspiring people to share the experience with. One of my favourite brand on display was most certainly Rua Luja.
What can I say, other than I adore everything about their range of items? They’re a London based fashion label, which is part of London Organic – a company which supports those that supply organic clothing.
Predominantly, they stock long, elegant dresses that look fabulous. If you’re searching for a dress that will ensure you look glamourous for a special occasion, then Rua Luja may be the perfect choice. Plus, they stock a variety of different long dresses, so there’ll be something for everyone.
Now, other than what you see on the exterior, the brand has wonderful morals, values and beliefs if you dig a little deeper. For instance, they sell fur jackets, which I must admit, look divine. But, all of the fur that they use has been validated for being cruelty-free, which shows they have a conscience, and want to appreciate all living things on this planet.
Talking of fur jackets, I did manage to try one on during the event, and I honestly couldn’t fault it. You see, being a wheelchair-user, I often find it difficult to source clothes, especially jackets, because they seem to get caught in the wheels. To put it simply, finding the right jacket is a nightmare.
However, the length on the Rua Luja fur jacket is absolutely spot on, which I was amazed at; it doesn’t interfere with the wheels whatsoever. As I spent quite a while at the Rua Luja stand, I was able to try on most of their range, as well as delve into the finer details. Something that stood out to me, was that everything is extremely affordable, despite the high-quality materials.
All in all, I had a terrific day at the London Ethnic Boutique event, and I’m super-happy that I discovered Rua Luja. If you want to check them out, then either visit their website, or their Instagram (both links will be below).
I personally feel that fashion styles are an extension of our personality, which is why every style should be seen as the beauty that it holds. Now, a huge part of an outfit these days is
jewellery, and that’s due to its ability to complement the individual that is wearing it. Typically, people wear jewellery because it not only looks amazing, but it also represents something, such as a wedding ring, a friendship bracelet, or a family necklace.
Although, some people that just enjoy the sparkles. Moreover, there are plenty of types of jewellery, and throughout my life, I’ve tried out a fair few of them. But, recently, I’ve fell in love with Regia London, which is a unique brand that focuses on a less common form of forging jewellery.
All of their products are made using the crochet technique, whereby silver or gold wire is constructed into wonderful jewellery. Everything is made in house, and the designs aren’t usually planned or influenced. So, the items are created using on-the-spot creativity, and I feel that’s why their jewellery won’t be affected by trends; the lovely designs could truly look phenomenal for a lifetime.
Nowadays, Regia London is my go-to store for all of my jewellery, and waking up each morning to put it on really brightens up my day, and puts a smile on my face. It could do that for you too, and here are three reasons why I admire this brand so much:
The fact that they’re all handmade enhances the jewellery in my opinion. Essentially, you’re not getting an item which has been mass produced, you’re getting an item which has been crafted carefully, with thought and passion. This adds an element of charm to the jewellery, and instead of viewing it as a product, you view it as something which is full of character. Plus, you get to feel like you’re part of something special!
Crochet jewellery is relatively rare, but the intricacy and skill make each item extremely beautiful. In addition, the visually pleasing design, plus the originality, means that I adore wearing it every single day. It enhances any outfit I wear, which means my confidence subsequently improves.
Regia London jewellery is very versatile and can be paired with any style of clothing, and any appearance that you desire to obtain. Whether I go out for a fancy dinner, grab a coffee with my friends, or do the weekly shopping, I always opt for my crochet jewellery. I genuinely wouldn’t swap Regia London for anything!
Ultimately, if you’re searching for something different that still looks absolutely gorgeous, then check out Regia London. They offer a wide variety of jewellery, all at affordable prices. But, the best factor, is that a crochet expert within the tight-knit Regia London team has taken the time to handcraft a stunning piece of jewellery.
