Current Trends in Fashion
Designs that have graced the catwalks in London, Oxford and Birmingham made an outing to a busy Solihull town center, to stop shoppers and locals alike in their tracks as a high fashion shoot unfolded around them. A creative team from the Midlands came together to display their talents.
Rhona Anne, the designer, said “My goals are to design and produce garments that any woman any age would want to wear. My passion is designing, creating something new and being inspired by everything around me”. The team believe that these images certainly show that along with the talents of the individuals involved and they are pleased to present it to you.
The two models wore two outfits each – chosed to compliment their looks and style.
Jo Loake is a model and dancer from Northamptonshire, interested mainly in fashion and beauty. Jo said “I love modelling because it is a great way to meet like minded creative people and I find it really exciting working together to create a new set of images.”
Jo first modeled the the ruffle tunic (£75) in Black, tucked in the paneled skirt. Jo later changed into a leopard sleeveless drape front top and tucked that into the black paneled mini skirt.
Savannah Smith is a part time model, full time student and also holds down a part time job! Clearly very fashion conscious, she loves modelling which shows in her posing and creativity, and is always looking for interesting challenges in her modelling.
Savannah first wore the ruffle dress (£90) in camel and later wore the Camel Ruffle Skirt with the black leather slash neck top.

Models and dresses need to be presented to their best and hair and make-up were provided by specialists in their area. Cara Mullen is a fully trained hairstylist and makeup artist, who provided hair on the shoot. She says “I enjoy creating new styles based on different eras which give my styling performance a modern yet vintage look. I also style Afro Caribbean hair which has given me a wider range of knowledge on all types of hair. Photo-shoots and bridal are what I specialize in my working field.”
Make up was provided to great effect by Jagoda Radczak . Jagoda is a make-up artist who specializes in fashion and beauty makeup. “I enjoy working within fashion as it allows me to get creative and meet some truly talented individuals along the way.”
The final member of the team was local photographer Brian Simpson had the fantastic job of capturing the resulting images. Brian is a part-time photographer with a keen eye for a fashion and beauty image. He saw Rhona Anne’s designs online and approached her with the idea of a collaboration. He and the team are delighted with the result of the shoot and hope you enjoy them.
