This is my final set of photographs from my photoshoot with the extremely-talented Kace. I feel a bit sad that my blog will no longer be graced with such beautiful photos! It’ll be back to tripod shots and far less arty backgrounds from now on (sad face emoji).
I saved these few photos until last because I think this skirt is an absolute showstopper and consequently, this outfit is my favourite of the 3 Merci Me looks that I styled for this shoot. As both the top and skirt are polyester (from the ‘Main‘ collection), the delicate and graceful movement of each piece is priceless. This is the kind of outfit that as a young girl, I would have spent hours twirling around in, enjoying the flowing fabric in all its glory. Particularly in the last photo, we took advantage of the wind in order to capture the beauty of the delicate fabrics and to create a vision of sartorial strength that had associations of both power and elegance; a juxtaposition that can rarely be demonstrated in the fashion world. The beautiful frills on the ‘Rose Crop‘ top are fun, flirty and feminine whilst the daring thigh-high split on the ‘Hyacinth Parted Skirt‘ is a reflection of the wearer’s sensuality and desire to make a statement.
Upon our meetings, designer Mercy Ogole has expressed her ideas about creating a visual impact with her designs; pairing the concept of originality and individualism with timeless beauty and classic sophistication. In my opinion, the Merci Me garments are nothing short of sartorial perfection. Mercy has spent years growing and developing her brand and artistry to get where she is today and she deserves global recognition for not only her outstanding talent in various areas of the industry (she’s also a highly sought-after runway and commercial model) but for her passion and dedication to the vision that she has worked so hard to create. Mercy, it’s always a pleasure working with you.
Love, Beth xo.
