QUEEN OF THE NILE
Top, Reem Juan at Symphony. Trousers, Temperley. Headpiece, hairstylist's own. Necklace, Ashley Pittman; bangle, Hervé Van Der Straeten, both at Net-a-porter. Ring, stylist's own.

LOCATION: We had a once in a lifetime opportunity to shoot our recent fashion editorial for Luxury Magazine at the Savoy in London, with one of London's most sought after photographers Wendy Bevan.

THE THEME: We wanted to shoot a story based on Cleopatra and decided to shoot with polaroid film, to give an authenticity and vibrant colour palette to the final images.

Here you can see our beautiful model Steph Corta from Australia, having her eyes taped by make up artist Jo Frost before being secured by elastic to get the right eye shape for the Cleopatra eye make up.

Look at the transformation!

THE CLOTHES: We had an eclectic mix- some wonderful colours and textures to work with from the likes of Alice Temperley, Matthew Williamson, Alessandra Rich, and Jenny Packham among others. Net-a-porter, Symphony and Bloomingdales also helped by sending a great selection to us on the day.

Look at the amazing skill in this Tom Ford dress we received- of course it made our final edit.

Hard at work!

All the cover options taped on our wall for the final decision- only a few hours before going to press.

THE RESULT:
