In my second year at University I chose printing for my elective, and I also created a print project as one of my final year projects – it was a love affair at first sight. However, I never seemed to find the time to actually include it into the collections I have done for my own label. I came across Lisa Stannard’s work when I was featured in Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion Illustration, a book in which she illustrated my collection for the feature. I really liked her hand writing, and we started our “cyber” friendship by following each other on social media sites. For my latest project I felt really strongly about including prints, therefore I asked Lisa whether she’d like to collaborate on the project.

26/04/2013 - LISA STANNARD LOOKBOOK S/S 2013

En dag i början av april kom en trevlig kvinna med svart hår och lugg fram till mig på Starbucks och frågade om jag var modell. Lite förvånad sa jag att ja, jag har modellat tidigare. Det visade sig att hon var en fotograf som gjorde mycket reklam och modejobb och hon var intresserad av att jobba med mig. Så, väldigt smickrad gav jag henne min email och inom några dagar kom en förfrågan om jag ville plåtas för designern Lisa Stannards nya lookbook, och som ni kanske kan gissa så ville jag det.

Den 26 var det dags och - efter att jag tappat bort mig i Manchester, gått till fel ställe och väntat, för att dyka upp till teamet 45 minuter försent - hade jag en jätterolig dag med underbara brudar. Och se så fint resultatet blev!

Layla Sailor Photographer Interview: A History & Reinterpretation of the Classical Russian Headress, the Kokoshnik via REDEFINE magazine

Layla Sailor’s gorgeous photo series, Kokoshnik, examines the traditional Russian headdress in a gloriously colorful and modern fashion. Historically worn by married women from the 16th to 19th centuries, the customary kokoshnik is generally characterized by a nimbus crest-like shape and decorative design. By contrast, Layla’s photos, a collaboration with designer Lisa Stannard, are an apt abstraction of the traditional headdress, incorporating lively geometric forms as well floral and animalistic elements, while honoring the intense, ornate design of the traditional pieces.
