London Organic – What Fascinates Me About Working with Them

London Organic – What Fascinates Me About Working with Them

London Organic PR

The fashion industry in the UK is booming more than ever, and that’s because of all the amazing designers, labels, brands and models. But, a major factor in why UK designers get so much exposure is down to PR companies that work tirelessly to push them further. Now, recently I was fortunate enough to collaborate with a wonderful PR company called London Organic.

Predominantly, they work with UK designers that are unique and stand out from the crowd. They love labels that reflect the British fashion culture with amazing style, while also representing each and every diverse group that exists in London. Personally, when I was working alongside London Organic, I was mesmerized by the way they actually support different designers.

They literally cover every angle; whether it’s assisting with production so that items are showcased in the best light, conducting photo shoots that capture creativity or advertising the label on social media, they leave no stone unturned. Now, when I met London Organic, it was at a pop-up boutique.

So, the first way I joined forces with them was to take part in some of their photo shoots. This was brilliant, because not only did I get to try on a vast array of different pieces, I also got to see behind the scenes of a London Organic shoot. Judging by the quality of pieces that I got to adorn during the photoshoot, you can tell that the renowned PR company take great time to carefully select who they support.

Of course, their speciality lies in helping emerging talent reach the top, but they still ensure that the labels they work with produce top class items. All throughout the shoot, London Organic displayed a sense of pride in every single designer that is under their wing, which is fantastic because that attitude is what’s going to help UK fashion continue to thrive.

Other than being part of the photo shoot, I also got to check out some of their products which they make themselves. Their products mainly revolve around organic face and skin creams; flawless skin complements fashion pieces and adds to the overall beauty during a shoot. I’ve got to say, I was super impressed by all of their products.

Why? Because not only did they smell divine and feel fabulous, they were full of natural ingredients which will only benefit your body. Nowadays, there’s too many companies within the fashion industry that produce chemical-based creams, which I believe isn’t a good thing. Therefore, it was nice to see London Organic focusing on being fully organic.

My day with London Organic at the pop-up boutique was very fulfilling, and I had a tremendous time being part of the photo shoot, meeting all of the designers, and exploring their range of face and skin creams. If you’re a designer that needs help to progress, or you’re someone that wants a lovely, natural skin cream, then I’d highly recommend London Organic!

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.

3 Amazing Benefits of Choosing Neutral Colours When Shopping

3 Amazing Benefits of Choosing Neutral Colours When Shopping

Neutral Colours

When it comes to beauty, a great style can be very opinionative. Some people love to equip vibrant clothes, with sparkling jewellery to stand out amongst the crowd. Whereas, others prefer the smart look, so they can feel a million dollars without everyone stopping and staring. But, I believe neutral colours can suit any style, and you can achieve a wonderful look by taking the minimalistic approach.

Although, neutral colours just aren’t utilised enough, and I feel that’s because people just aren’t aware of the benefits. You often heat that neutral colours get avoided because they’re perceived as boring, or uninspiring. But, that’s certainly not the case, and I’ve listed some advantages to choosing neutral colours…

Can be matched with anything

Neutral colours can literally be accompanied by any other clothing item, regardless of the colour or design. This makes them a brilliant asset to any wardrobe because we all know how difficult it is to choose an outfit at the best of times. Plus, they’re very versatile, which means you can save a lot of time if you have a busy schedule. For instance, if you have a job throughout the day, but then want to go for a drink with friends straight afterwards, your neutral attire will look fantastic for both.

Great choice for travelling

When it comes to travelling, it’s all about taking the essentials that you need. Why? Because if you attempt to take too many items of clothing, you either won’t be able to fit it into your suitcase, or you’ll rack up high luggage costs for all the excess weight. Now, with neutral colours, you’ll be able to take a small selection of outfits, which can be used in many different scenarios. Just imagine how much easier travelling would be if you could just pack your clothes within minutes, rather than having a stressful decision over what items you’ll need to leave at home.

Save Money

Neutral Colours

A huge factor when buying clothes is staying within budget, and searching for neutral colours will save you an awful lot of money overall. That’s because you won’t need to purchase several outfits for different occasions, as neutral colours are flexible, yet beautiful enough to look great all day, every day. In addition, neutral coloured clothing often costs much less, as they’re often considered very basic. Although, despite being basic in colour, they’re certainly not basic when it comes to aesthetics.

Ultimately, neutral colours offer a vast array of benefits, and believe it or not, can actually enhance your appearance. I’m a strong believer that sometimes, less is more. So, you don’t need to put maximum effort in all the time with your outfit, as you can still look gorgeous even with neutral coloured clothing on a horrible, rainy day.
