The Millennium Bridge is one of many London spots which I’ve been dreaming of capturing. As the name suggests, the bridge was built to mark the coming of the new millennium. The steel suspension bridge is quite unique amongst the more dated (albeit historic) bridges which straddle the Thames. I particularly love this bridge for it’s slight wobble (which caused its closure for 2 years when it initially opened) and most of all, for its stunning and dramatic view of St Paul’s Cathedral. On a sunny day like this, it’s a magnificent walk across the river and a true London landmark (further kudos points for being in the Harry Potter movie).
I thought shooting at the Millennium Bridge required something amazing. And that something amazing had to be Kirsty Ward. As one of the young British designers to watch, Kirsty’s A/W14 looks are simply divine. Featuring short fringing and lace, this peplum top is one of my favourite pieces. It’s a very playful top which can easily be dressed down (perhaps with some ripped jeans) or up (such as with a midi pencil skirt). I decided to keep the look quite playful by teaming it with the Native Rose shit dress with awesome geo rose tile prints and wearing Kirsty’s stand out aluminium loop bracelets on my ankle to give it that extra celebratory feel.
